I'm waiting for the PC version. This should run on pretty much anything so unless you don't have a PC at all you should be able to play this.
Currently playing: Uncharted 3, Dark Souls, Team ICO Collection, Atelier Totori, Child of eden.

While it does look like a potentially great gimmick, I can see the whole "drop in world" thing getting old and annoying fairly quickly. Still interested if it ever makes it to the PSN though.

Anybody else playing this? It took me some time to warm up to the combat, but I am absolutely loving it.  It's everything I'd want in an XBLA title and more.  The atmosphere is great and the narration makes it a funny little trip.  Also, something about building the world is very Legend of Mana-like (along with the vibrant storybook colors).  I keep finding new things to love about it every step of the way.  I'll admit when I played it at E3 I wasn't wowed, but now that I've really dug into it, I am completely impressed.

Definitely want to get this if it comes out for PS3. Though, I plan on buying a new computer (one that could actually handle it) sometime in the next 12 months, so I'll just get it on that if things look too grim.

Which means me: Mac x3,  PC x0. And I'm too cheap and indifferent to bootcamp. My computers are workhorses anyway, gaming is restricted to consoles. Thankfully, 360 is me.

Bought it on the website after seeing someone say that I'd get The Maw free if I did.  Just gotta wait until I get back to my 360 on Monday to play it...

Yeah, I'm also playing it right now.  I find it to be highly enjoyable.  I've been anticipating it for a while, so it was nice to finally play it.  Once you get used to it and see how the design is, it's easy and fun to play. The narrator is a nice touch and it doesn't do absolutely everything you do, which is fine.  It's a unique touch that I don't find to be too intrusive.  The music is good, and the visuals are stunning.  For a downloadable title I have to say, it definitely rates among the better ones.

This game's phenomenal soundtrack is now available for download at $10.  $15 gets you a CD instead that ships in September, with an immediate download after your payment is processed so you can enjoy now and receive your physical copy later.

Picked it up on Steam yesterday. Best game I've played in a long time, it's incredibly nostalgic, beautiful, and combat is genuinely enjoyable. What's really amazing is how every weapon feels different- you get 4+ types of guns and they all have their own uses.

The best part is that it fulfills my JRPG nostalgia without the ridiculous grinds or walls of texts that drive me crazy. If you liked any of the Secret of games, you owe it to yourself to pick it up.

Soundtrack is $5 on Steam:

Necro for those who can finally play on the VITA!

Just came out and am playing it. Very enjoyable although I hit a bug where the narrator is now silent and the captions zip by too fast to read 😓

My PC was fortunately powerful enough to play Bastion, and I'm definitely content in my playthrough.
