Cute but I am fine with just playing it for free with Game Pass

I went ahead and preordered the CE. Maybe itís silly because of GamePass, but the first Ori is one of my favorite games this gen (and in the running as the game Iíve bought the most, between myself and gifts for friends/family), and it means enough to me to get the fancy version for the sequel. The soundtrack CD sure doesnít hurt either; that was one of the best things about the eventual physical release of the previous game.

If I liked the game that much I would probably buy that as well. Looks like a nice set

If it came with a vinyl soundtrack, I'd have bought it.
Unfortunately, I'm worried that'll be an iam8bit exclusive instead.

20 minutes of gameplay. Sure looks like an Ori game. Can't wait to play it.

Reviews are going up now, and...wow! As expected, theyíre universally glowing. Not a Metacritic guy at all, but itís still nice to see it with such a high Metascore: 92, as I write this.

I have Blind Forest: DE set to go after I finish Doom again. That and this, I usually don’t play these side scrollers anymore, used to be all I played, my how times change, but they look so fucking beautiful. Like I’ve never seen in a game like this. Also, music is just enchanting. I hope I can at least start BF this weekend and at least get feet wet, but 3/20 on will be devoted to Doom: Eternal...

I didn't realize how massive the collector's edition would be. The packaging is extremely heavy-duty; even after removing the artbook and steelbook, it still weighs a good bit. With The Blind Forest for scale:



The digital soundtrack has 60 tracks and runs just over 3 hours in all. The CD has 11 tracks and runs 51 minutes. The artbook is around 150 pages. Honestly, my only gripe is that the standard edition has such gorgeous artwork that it's kind of a drag for the steelbook to be this stark.

Played just under an hour. The opening cinematics are wonderful, but a bit too long before you really get to dive into the gameplay. So far, I'm enjoying it though! The first game was one of my absolute favorites and this looks like it's going to be a real challenge. I had to run from a wolf and had a hard time not letting it kick my ass.

It was SO long that I checked my phone and totally missed what happened to the owl!

So playing first makes sense, right? Is it really hard, like lowering to easy to make it better experience? I mean I can’t remember the last time I played a side scroller. Have a bunch, but haven’t played anything since the 3D’s took control. Some of you guys say are frustratingly maddening, but in a good way, but sounds to me frustrating and hitting brick wall...

I found the first one sufficiently challenging, but nowhere near as insane as Celeste.
Play it on easy, or switch to easy if you hit a hard part. Don't overthink it, and just enjoy the gameplay/story.

The first one is challenging but fair. If you die, it's your fault.

Played about 45 min of this one. It's great. It's just more Ori. I like it alot.
