Re: [INFO] Transistor

May 22, 2014

First off, I abolsutely love this game. Finished the first playthrough and the story is really immersive and intimate, the gameplay is really engaging, and like Bastion: the soundtrack is incredible.

 

I have a question and Im not sure if anyone knows this or not yet but I figure'd Id ask. I noticed that some of the more challenging trophies require you to use for example, all 10 Resistors. Right now I'm in start half of Recursion mode, but I still need one more resistor:

 

Does anyone know if you can play recursion mode again (essentially New Game ++) allowing you to carry over your level and items from the first TWO playthroughs into a third? The reason why I ask is because it will be a bit easier to hit rank 24 if you had more than 2 playthroughs, as well as be able to use all 10 resistors at an earlier time in the game as well.

 

Thanks!

This looks pretty darn fantastic, a little on the fence, but I think I'll pick it up, if only to support the developer. I hope it's as immersive as it looks.

I absolutely love the seamless combat and the ability to combo customized moves . Great job once again. The SciFi/ arc déco noir is beautifully done. The building of the char back story by grinding out your move set is a fresh idea. Keep it up

Hey narutofan, I think because you can do so much of the battles using the turn base system that this game wouldn't be a bad one for you. If you have specific questions just ask!

how r the controls layed out as far as the action buttons? because if its like lightning returs i'll pass, kinda wish there was a demo

I'm glad that everyone is enjoying Transistor so far. I'm going to update the OP within a day or two to post some reviews that this has received. So far, many people are enjoying SuperGiant's work and I could see why.

 

To anyone else that is also a fan of Transistor's soundtrack, the Audio Director of SuperGiant, Darren Korb, posted on the blog. Here's a link:

You can also purchase Transistor's soundtrack from SuperGiant's site as well. Here's a link, if anyone is interested:

Got to say... It looks awesome. I didn't even want to confess that.

 

Question: Is it as hard as Final Fantasy? That game is impossible for me.

 

If it's more near Yakuza difficulty I'd be happy, but anything with some sort of RPG focus I have to be very weary of as I don't enjoy games I'm bad at.

narutofan, here is the layout as best I can recall:

 

Left Analog Stick = Movement

 

4 Face Buttons = Attacks you have on your hotbar

 

R2 = Enter planning mode (lets you plan out your attacks and then just execute them all at once)

 

 

Those are the main buttons you'll use.  When I play later tonight, if I think of anything else I'll come back here and post.

This game is tons of fun, well worth the $20. You can reall see the unique style that Supergiant Games brings to the table. Very Bastion-Like in graphics and also narrative. Gameplay is hugely different though. I much prefer Bastion to Transistor but Transistor is definately a unique expierence that you shouldn't pass up.

I personally didn't find it that hard, although the "adjustable difficulty" with the Limiters can make the game a challenge on some battles I would imagine. I was able to platinum the game though with relaitve ease. It does require you to use ALL limiters at once for 5 battles, but sometimes you can get them on fairly easy encounters, making the trophy not that difficult depending on when you use it.

 

Anyways now that I've finished 2 playthroughs and Platinumed it, I fully reccommend it. While it is a bit on the short side (like I said, Platinum in 4 days) - it is an absolute blast, and is quality all the way around in gameplay, visuals, music, and storytelling. Well worth the 20$
