Well, this generation the Xbox-centric games have been unfairly ignored. I agree with you on Ori, but I would go further than the music. It's a beautiful game that I found substantial. But in the same way as Sunset Overdrive or Killer Instinct is silently wonderful, Ori fell into that group. If you ask what the top five best fighters or platformers were on this generation of consoles, I'd have them both on the list. It's reasonable, the PS4 library has been incredible from day one and this year it's almost stronger than ever. The PS4 just delivers constantly.
Ori is fantastic and I wish more people would play it. The development is interesting as a personal story and the actual game is really great. :-)
I was definitely into the pretty parts of the first game, but there wasn't enough there for me to feel like I was getting what I wanted. Rolling in a bunch of amazing new characters like Darth Maul and having maps that feel more alive would go a long way for me personally. The first game just felt like a skeleton of what was to come. The vehicle spawning stuff was a little weird too.
This game always seemed insanely difficult to me. The levels were so long and you had to fight the controls. Glad to see some game preservation. Lets not forget, there were what, four Turok games on the N64? I picked it up deep discount for ten dollars. They were fire-selling copies of the game at Toys-R-Us.
This is so fun and funny. I've got a Gamecube plugged in. But far filthier (both in spirit and literally) is my Zune HD which is in my gym bag with music on it. I haven't connected it to the internet in years, although I know that Zune is a dead service so it would likely not get me very far. Nonetheless, awesome piece of tech, it's a great device.
I echo sentiments in this thread, the first one is my personal favorite of the two. The second one dipped hard in the well. The multiplayer is good, thought finding a match may be difficult. I would recommend the first game over the second.
