Ori being confirmed for Switch makes me happy!

I've wanted to play that game for so long! And it's being released just before my birthday!
SU-PER HAWT! So damn excited for that game. Didn’t think it would come to Switch!

It’s also hilarious that Mircosoft is giving me less and less reasons to buy an X-Box. What’s next, Rare Replay? Halo? xD
Can’t wait to play Super Hot on the go and on the big screen! It’s an amazing game and everyone should play it.
