A one-shot fan fic from Super Giant Games' stellar title "Bastion."
The story is narrated by Rucks (the main voice throoughout the game) and follows the kid as searches the workmen ward for another core. Nothing about the trip will be easy (on account of the foes resisting him) but he manages to learn some new tricks along the way.

So I like Bastion, and I like fanfiction.
This is a surprisingly good take on Rucks. I haven't played the game in a while, but this felt very true to his tone, and his tone left a definite impression. He didn't talk nearly this much about what was going on during the game, but with this sort of storytelling gimmick, you gotta do what you gotta do. Also, by starting out slow and ramping up, you made it seem more normal.
The War Machete was definitly my favorite weapon. I don't remember Workmens Ward specifically, though.
The fight scenes were fairly slick and readable.
In the end, though, there's nothing deeper here; no real challenge, or emotional swing, or twist ending, or what have you. It's fun, but fun is really all it is.
There's nothing wrong with that, really, but yeah. I want a little more depth to my short stories before I hand out really high ratings.
