Bastion is a beautiful and easy to complete Action RPG. You control the "Kid" through various areas searching for parts to restore "The Bastion." While you play through the game a nameless narrator will comment your every move. It will take you between 6 to 8 hours for the full 200 . You need a second playthrough to complete New Game+ and for the second ending, which will only costs you about 90 minutes of your time when running straight to the end.
1st Playthough / First ending:
Just play through the game without much worry and do what you want. You can't miss anything in the game. If you complete an area and didn't pick up a certain item, you can buy it later in the Lost & Found house. But it will cost you, so looking for them makes it a little easier. They're not hidden very well. Remember to speak to the two survivors after you rescue them to get "The Survivor" and "The Singer".
Get all the mementos or buy them. Then talk to the people to unlock the four animals. This will net you "Pet Sitter". You need certain mementos, which - again - you can't miss. Right before the end you will unlock the last of the three Who Knows Where arenas. Complete them for "Mind Voyager".
You will have all 11 weapons at this point. So upgrade each of them at least once to net you "Kid-at-Arms". It is also best to complete every Vigil from the memorial for "Vigilante" and "Altruist". After everything is done, finish the story and choose one of the endings. You either use the bastion or stay in the new world.
This playthrough will get you 150
2nd Playthrough - New Game + / Second Ending:
If you've done everything on your first run, you should now only have to beat New Game+, which will take you about 90 minutes. Just run through and only defeat enemies when they block your way. This time choose the different ending. If you chose to use the Bastion ("The End"), then choose to embrace the new world by staying ("The Beginning") or vice versa.
You should now have 200 in Bastion. If you still missed anything, you can always choose New Game+ again. The only thing you will have to do again are a few Vigils like getting first place seven times in challenges.
