This Transistor puts us to shame

You guys know I played and loved Transistor, the latest game from Supergiant Games, the makers of indie darling, Bastion. It’s a fantastic game that I’d recommend playing on PS4 for those who have one – the sounds from the controller speaker make it next level excellent. But some people have gone beyond that with their creativity.

Over on Super Punch, this homemade transistor blade is certainly looking rather appealing. It was apparently broken and repaired following PAX 2013, so the fins are brand new. Geez, it makes me wish I had one – so glad that I recently dyed my hair red again. Here are some pics to rub your eyeballs over.

I am not really into cosplay. I’d love to be, but I’m not good at crafts so it just doesn’t happen. I like playing dress up, but unfortunately I don’t have anything close to the skills required to make something like this. Darryn puts us all to shame every year for rAge, but he’s just a very special individual who also happens to work well in a garage. Or cave.

Are you guys interested in building these sorts of cool and wonderful creations? Would you swing this Transistor blade wildly around your living room in the nude, or does it all seem a bit too much for you? I’ve still got the material for my Haruki Suzumiya costume. Let’s hope that one day I actually make it. Or get someone else to make it for me. Yeah, that sounds like a more likely scenario.

          Chaos? Nah, if I could only ever wear one piece of SM armour it would have to be a grey knight terminator with thunder claws, or possibly a dark angels terminator =)

            I’m actually not that fond of the Terminators. I have a friend who loves them. When it comes to the Space Marines I quite like the Blood Angels.

            The blood angels have got a wicked chief librarian! I’ve always liked the Dark Angels and the Imperial Fists myself, and hold a sweet spot for the Salamanders ๐Ÿ˜› (ref. The Assault of the Tempest Galleries)

    Now imagine incorporating the PS4 controller into that blade (somehow) so that when it talks in-game the blade flashes and the voice come out of the blade IN YOUR HANDS!

    I’m not a big enough fan of anything to go to the trouble of doing something like this.

      Muggle.

      Not even just a Pip Boy? (which will probably be more complex than an entire outfit)

          I’m afraid that in our extremely sensitive nation every word I say can be misconstrued as possibly being racist, sexist, ageist, (insert more here).

            I’m offended by your cowardice, the insult towards our great nation, the idea that your words would be misconstrued & the presumption that I should insert more -ist insults.

          He has either called you a cannabis user or someone that possesses no magical talent. He could just be very obscure and be refer to you as a practicing Muggletonian. Which is some outdated religious group.

    The problem is were do you keep all this stuff once the hype is over. That and as @disqus_DoEH3TsffU:disqus says I’m not a big enough fan to even try this.
