Gotcha. Thanks for the help! It's a pretty great game so far so I'll probably finish the regular edition and circle back to the DE in a couple of months.

Just wrapped this one up. What a great game! Aside from being oddly difficult at times it was pretty much perfect.

Looks awesome. I hadn't heard of the RoA game before. Available on Steam and Xbox One:

Just a quick question with this game...when you’re stuck and have no idea what to do or where to go, what do you do?

I know there’s a map, but I don’t know, from it, where to go or what to do. Love the game, but it can get frustrating as hell.

Thanks for any help.

^ can anyone help on the above? thanks in advance. i guess i'm in the beginning and trying to find the Ginso tree, maybe? i don't see or understand it on the map. And is the objective marker, the big blue glowing circle on map?

Well, I found the Ginso tree. Currently in it now. I love the exploring and the different powers and abilities to unlock. This is definitely one of the most fascinating, addicting and frustrating games I’ve ever played. But, the frustration is definitely not out of hatred. Just the so close and nearly getting it kind that gnaws at you until you finally do, feel that relief and save via soul link, but definitely keeps you gripped and wanting to play more and explore and find all. Though Quest’s remarks about not getting a map too early on in Will of the Wisps has me a little worried. But, I think I have a long way to go before tackling that. And even though I just found the Ginso tree, which is probably still early stages, I think it said I’ve died nearly 400 times. I can’t imagine what that number will be when I finish.

And how in godís name is it remotely possible to finish this game without dying once? I canít even comprehend someone, even a master player accomplishing that...

And just to clarify I didn't say in the sequel you don't have the map early on. I meant it takes too long to access your map.

Access, meaning button presses to get to map? Not just the one select button like for Blind Forest?

This game is at the same time exhilarating, heartbreaking and god damn frustrating. Some areas are just so hard. I literally have to stop because my hands ache and start shaking. Iím still in Ginso tree, making my way up, but itís so tough and I can barely make a soul link when I want to, so I have to go back down a couple levels and start over and over and over again. I just got bash ability and think I figured out how to use, but thereís a point where there are all these stone fragments that I have to bash in midair and get them all and make it over thorny area. Just so damn frustrating. But I shut it off, come back the next day and somehow creep closer to finishing section. I just keep dying over and over. Never was I more into a game that I completely sucked at. And Iím playing on normal. I just wish I could play longer, but it literally pains my hands. The mental frustration I can deal with, itís the physical that is the drawback...

Re: Ori and the Blind Forest (PC and Xbox One; 360 coming soon)

whoever invented this game is a complete sadist. i finally finished the Ginso tree (fucking bashing enemy projectiles so intricately that they go through the warp or worm holes and then bashing Ori ahead of said projectiles so i can divert them just so to bash a tree or something, ugh!), making it to the top, or so i thought.

then this water starts gushing up and i have to bash my way to top zig zagging and what not. i gave up because my hands couldn't take it. holy shit so fun and so exhausting at the same time.

are all the main levels when you finish like this? wow! total mad genius the people that created this and Will of the Wisps games. g-damn. fucking tough, but exhilarating.

Re: Ori and the Blind Forest (PC and Xbox One; 360 coming soon)

so i finally made it up the Ginso tree by like a hair on my chin. reminded me of the last thing you have to do in the original Metroid game on Nintendo after you kill Mother Brain.

so can anyone give me a recommendation on which ability string i should go for?

i know there are three and they are very distinct, but is one better to build upon than the other two? i've so far upgraded the basics on all 3 branches and now have 2 ability points and most cost 2 now, so wondering where i should use them so it would make the biggest difference.

thanks.
