Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Horn Beetle: how to defeat this oversized bug

While the previous adventure had Ori running away from big monsters more often than not, Ori And The Will Of The Wisps has some more traditional boss fights. The first proper boss fight you'll be facing will be against the Horn Beetle. Its attacks are rather simple to dodge, but it does have a couple of sneaky tricks up its insect sleeve.

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Wellspring chase: how to escape the tentacle monster

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps doesn't do away from the whole running away from big monsters shtick that the previous game had. In fact, the first big chase sequence has Ori running away from a monster that's pretty much just a mass of tentacles with teeth. Frankly I'm not surprised that running away from this monster is the only option.

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps review

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps delivers an affecting tale overall, but it teems with small, strange stories: a cutesy little owlet learns to glide along the pockets of air its massive, dinosaur-sized ancestors once sailed. A small man with a skull for a face tries very hard to save a tree that’s already dead. An ancient frog king fights some sort of weird…

The secrets of Ori And The Will Of The Wisps’ incredible music

It’s quite rare for a composer to be offered as the spokesperson for an upcoming game, but it’s also quite rare for a game to sound as good as Ori And The Will Of The Wisps. So good, in fact, that it was Gareth Coker’s tinkling ivories that were first used to announce the game at E3 2017, where he sat at his piano and…

I understand that spiders are our household helpers and it's wrong to hate them, but I also understand that the fungus-infected giant spiders in Ori And The Will Of The Wisps are horrible and I hate them with my entire being. The purpose of the new trailer debuted at E3 was to announce a release date of February 11th, 2020 but that has only caused…

Metroid 2 fan remake dev now working on Ori sequel

One year and a day ago, and after a decade of work, one Metroid fan released an unofficial PC remake of Nintendo's Metroid II. AM2R [official site] was its name (Another Metroid 2 Remake), and being pretty great was its game. Alas, Nintendo's lawyers shut AM2R down within days. This was unpleasant but unsurprising. The anniversary of the launch, however, has brought far better news.AM2R…
