    Ori was incredible. So glad it's getting some more attention. I still remember the forest flood escape being one of my favorite experiences in any platformer ever. Stellar music, too.

    Ori is easily the most underrated game so far this console generation.

    Shit, I actually own the first Ori, but I never played it. Probably time to fix that...

    I bought the Definitive Edition of the first one ages ago, just started playing today and already hooked. Just need to switch to gamepad since playing on the keyboard feels like a pain in the ass.

    We're 2 weeks out, and all the hands-on previews I've read are positing this as an early game of the year contender.
    The crazy sons of bitches actually did it -- they made a full, no-strings-attached sequel to a video game in 2020.
    Expecting very high aggregate review scores.
