Nearing 3 hours into Ori 2 now and really liking it, it seems like it’s taken inspiration from Hollow Knight (maybe others but Hollow Knight is the most obvious one to me) with its combat, obviously it’s nowhere near as unforgiving as Hollow Knight but the shards are effectively charms as well as being able to upgrade them. The story seems to be really strong like Ori 1 has. Looks and sounds unbelievable as well :wub:

Saying that, I’m not sure if I’ll enjoy it quite as much as the first one though. Also please someone tell me that Naru and Gumo don’t get offed in the course of the game.

There's been a few months where I've totally forgotten GWG is a thing.

Is it today the Spring Sale starts on Xbox? Any idea what time the sales usually go live in the UK?

One of the new Rewards is 5,000 points (worth about £5) when you spend £35 in the sale. The discounted prices aren’t shown yet, but it lists the games that are in the sale (there are a hell of a lot!), in case there was something you were hoping for.

I'd be up for 1/2 price Tony Hawk or Fenyx.

Yeah, they’re both in there. I’d like a huge discount on Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, and various Hitmans are listed, so I could get up to date there.

If you're wondering why Live is having problems at the moment.

Friday Morning Edit: All fine now.

Trine collection seems good value.

I grabbed Virginia for £1.99, not much else in the sale I am after, wish they had more 360 era stuff.

Really nothing of interest for me. The discounts on Fenyx only seem to be on the gold edition and TH isn't discounting the version that has a free upgrade to Series X. Was kind of hoping for Scott Pilgrim as that is in the current Switch sale but wasn't there.

I just had a message from Xbox telling me they were giving me an £8 gift card to celebrate Easter!

Such generosity I never experienced as a PlayStation gamer :lol: :toot:

Along with Gamepass it's like Microsoft don't want me to spend any money on games at all :slol:

There is so much on sale I’m tempted by, even though they weren’t the best MGS games, you can get Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain for under £9, 2 & 3 for £7.50. Was hoping Black Flag would be in the sale, or either of the KOTOR games but alas they’re not.

Is there a list of TVs that meet the requirements to get all green ticks on the series X?

I feel like my old 1080 LED Sony Bravia isn't allowing the console to demonstrate its potential.

But the biggest piece of evidence I have that Abandoned is not a Kojima joint is that Kojima is in talks with Microsoft about publishing his next game, according to a source familiar with the matter. And yes, that statue on Phil Spencer’s shelf was referencing a potential deal with the legendary developer. I cannot confirm if Xbox closed the deal yet, but my understanding is that Kojima is the focus of a Microsoft plan to leverage Japanese talent.
