Hard Times in Bastion
Bastion bothers me.
A friend of mine on Twitter noticed this first, but I’ve seen it, too. There’s something like a place that makes you shed your identity and turn into a person identical to all of the other people around you of the same gender a bit unnerving. And the words used by these people remind me of a, of a … well, this.
And then there’s this.
Here we have one of the cult members (circled, to the far right) “shedding his memories” (all the other circles). You can see that this blue dude is actually in past life a Tauren, and his memories of his past are deemed “burdens”.
They should have named it “definitely not a cult land”.
Now, a certain major lore character that you saw in one of the animated shorts (not spoiling it) has started a counter cultural movement, and I have to say, while they’re being portrayed as the baddies, I’m kinda rooting for them.
It may be pretty here, but it’s just horrible.
