Safe to say we have a hit on our hands. Good to see reviewers and critics loving this game. This game looks like a lot of passion, heart and more importantly personality went into it.

Sometimes that is what a lot of games missing, and it shows.

Good to see the metacritic so high for this game. Good Job goes to the fine people over at Moon Studios(?) and good job to MS for backing this project. I'm sure they knew this game was going to be a hit.

this game is scoring very well I am really surprised a AA (This is not a indie) game score this high.

Foehammer3270d ago

This game is blowing the doors off everything that's been released in 2015.

Why would the game break the studio? My understanding was that going mostly-exclusive with Ori meant it was ruminated excellently so it could be secure?

Tacoboto363d ago

You didn't read the article to understand the context in which it was said, then.

VenomUK363d ago

@Tacoboto Yes, that is correct.

Outside_ofthe_Box363d ago

Microsoft should swoop in and save the studio. Of all the purchases MS have made recently this would be the most sensible one.

Si-Fly363d ago

They don’t need saving lol, read the article.

Anomander363d ago

Some studios like to start independent and just do what they want. Yes, they have worked with with MS in the passed but Ori and the Blind Forest made great sense being on the Switch as well.

Sonyslave3363d ago

Ms cut ties with them for a reason just google it.

Sonic1881363d ago (Edited 363d ago )

I agree I believe Ori is the only *great* game on Xbox and maybe Hi-Fi rush

porkChop363d ago

Xbox doesn't work with Moon anymore. A report came out that Moon has an "oppressive" workplace full of racism, sexism, etc.

Vanfernal363d ago

But they want to buy Blizzard? 🤔

porkChop363d ago

Yeah Blizzard definitely has its own issues, can't deny that.

Isn’t the studio owned by M$?

Doesn’t their support allow risks to be taken?

MIDGETonSTILTS17363d ago

Well, why not?

Isn’t special support the whole point of being exclusive to one console?

MIDGETonSTILTS17363d ago

You spelled “I’m a smug disseminator of misinformation” wrong.

darthv72363d ago

"Why not?"... because MS never owned them.

Crows90363d ago

MS doesn't foster relationships in order to build up studios. That's why.

MIDGETonSTILTS17363d ago

It says “Xbox Game Studios” at the bottom of their webpage…. Sooooo what’s up with that then?

MIDGETonSTILTS17363d ago (Edited 363d ago )

Shows what you and 4 others smug idiots know…

"It says “Xbox Game Studios” at the bottom of their webpage…." you mean the ori game page??? that is because XBGS was the publisher. go read the actual link to the moon studios page and you will see they are an independent studio. https://www.orithegame.com/...

Or how about read the wiki page on them: https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...

Release it on PlayStation if you want to thrive financially.
