Good. Now announce us they'll be a physical copy soon and I'll bite like I'm about to with Cuphead !

That whole Nintendo Nindie Direct stream was incredible, some great looking games on the way for the system, these indies do a great job in filling in the gaps in between those major titles like Pokemon/Zelda/Animal Cross and such.



Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at www.youtube.com/stormcloudlive

Truly fascinating. At this wait not only will I not need an Xbox, I won't even need to upgrade my PC.

Having watched people playing Ori, I've always considered it a "hard for hard sakes" type of game. Where you play for the challenge.
Being on the handheld, maybe I'll give it a try. A demo would be great.

edit: Apparently it is 1080/60fps and 720/fps. Also the definitive version apparently they added an easy mode?

I'm intrigued.  I can't do cuphead because those boss fights set off my AHDH something fierce. Way too many projectiles on the screen at one time.

Ori is not a super challenging game.  I'd call it an average platformer, in terms of difficulty.  I don't remember getting particularly frustrated with it.  .

It is a very good game though, and I think it fits well on Switch.  



Holy balls!!

It is a challenging game, but it is also fair. The fact that you have control over where your checkpoint will be and how you reappear there instantly when you die makes the game’s trial and error parts much more bearable than most other games of its type.

Definitely a must get for anyone who hasn't played it yet. It's a beautifully crafted game.



Wait....there was a Nindies Direct. Was this a stealth drop or did I miss an announcement. Crazy!

Super stoked for this game. One of the few titles that I wanted an XBox for. This partnership or whatever between Nintendo and Microsoft is just weird, and I do feel like Nintendo must be offering them something, other than sales. I wonder if there are some dormant Nintendo properties that Microsoft is planning on bringing back. I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth, and maybe Microsoft's only angle is to get their titles on other platforms and the Switch is obviously a great place to go, but I just feel like something had to be traded to make this happen.

It was announced 2 days ago.You missed it.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=241866&page=1

This has been teased for months and after the Cuphead release it was pretty much a certainty. It's a sweet game with some frustrating scenes (those escapes look cool, but are quite the trial&error-fest the first time you do them) and you get tons of abilities/life/energy to handle most scenes quite comfortably (I'm not a platformer/metroidvania guy). It was certainly worth the 1€ I payed for gamepass for a month alone, but games like Into the Breach and Slay the Spire ended up even more worth it.



Good match, Ori should appeal to a big part of the Switch audience.

Perhaps I'll double-dip.
