Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4)

  • I've seen a few places with like 5-7 fish swimming in the same place.

  • Yep, spotted them myself as well. Didn't get any fish bones though after killing five trouts. Gotta kill more.

  • @Sentinel-Beach Dude.. I just stoped playing TR at.. some point.. got really bored. The game is beautifull, animation is great... but it´s just so... whatever... I didn´t picked up Uncharted 4 becuase I was a bit fatigued of the "indiana jones/rambo" normal guy shooter. picked TR half priced so I went for the oportunity.. but I fell that I still am a bit fatigued of this genre.
    Horizon is NOT that! it fells more like a monster hunter game.. but with actuall mechanics that metters! just facing a new robot figuring it out and how to engage... it´s a thrill I was missing for a long time.


    let me state outright that I love this game and I play videogames mostly to enjoy great gameplay and this game delivers just that! but that aside...

    Many outlets, some Easy Allies and IGN included, have been stating that this is one of the most beautifull games this generation! Some even compare it to Uncharted 4! Im not a graphics bitch.. and I think this game has a gorgeous art style, some good enviroments and great lighting.. but Character models are just ok! Aloy is beautifull specially her eyes( and such unique facial estructure) but you can´t hope to compare this with Uncharted 4 rinkles and textures! hell it doesn´t even mesure up to Rise of theTomb Raider! And both are more like open worlds with deep craft and customization. I know TR has a much smaller scale but the way Lara moves, or how her closes get wet, damn!
    I mean how I said it.. Horizon is beautifull.. but its graphical prowess is much more comparable to Dragon Age Inquisition than those other big games that relly so much in graphics!
    I don´t know how people get to those conclusions.. but I have to state here that to this day the most beautifull game I played on a PS4 .. it is an open world, with great gameplay and just gorgeous models, textures, and effects.. it was Infamous Second Son!

    I remember back in the day being like .."this game could be possible in the PS3.. they are not pushing themselves too much." And to this day it´s still the most good looking (and one of the best gameplay) this generation! Now I see how special that game was. I don´t want to be critical about Horizon.. but just be fair .. horizon is not that great looking! But it plays heavenly! and that is what metters!

    I've noticed that Sony's games do put a lot of detail into the eyes.

    It's like they have a studio that specializes in that alone.

  • If you think Horizon and Dragon Age: inquisition are graphically on the same level, I fear your television is broken.

  • This game is insane! I played for 9 hours today. Just now finished for tonight after three hours went by. I love this more and more. Earlier today I cleared the Nora lands by collecting every one of those things you can buy maps for, and I did all the side missions there, too. (This happened after I had reached Meridian the first time and picked some side missions to go along.) Now I headed to the Carja lands for the second time with so much more levels and weapons and upgrades and everything and it just feels so good! The fighting is way more fun when at one point I realized just to buy practically every weapon you can. Now you have something for everything. Yet still I'm afraid to face some of those monsters, and that's great!

    And the beauty of this game. I can't get enough of the Carja lands. The details and the distances and the colours! It's all just so full and dense, you know? Looks simply wonderful.

  • @MSBi Really good. Easily the best Wolverine movie, but that might not be saying much. Tied up there with X2 though.

  • @Inustar

    Just saw it last Sunday. The movie is spectacular. Easily the beat marvel movie Ive seen and probably the best Xmen movie.

    The feels and that ending though!

  • I got rekt by my first thunderjaw tonight. Those things are crazy!

  • So my BF tried to take on a stormbird. He was like level 18 and the bird was 28.
    He saw it and decided he must kill it.
    Did not go well.
    He now has his own arch nemesis.

    I've been doing so many of those tombs that every new robot I run into is already hackable. :P

  • Been taking a break and catching up with tv the past few days, but I'm gonna try to bag my first Thunderjaw this weekend.

    Good luck, bro.

  • I'm highly tempted to put the game into my current circulation with Nier, Zelda and Trails in the Sky FC (mixed with some Fate/Extella every now and then when I just want to slay), I know I can do it, it wouldn't be the 1st time.

    You really should. It's a fun game.

  • I've got something like 45 hrs in now. I simply can't play this less than three hours at one sitting. I've bought all the purple costumes, the Shadow ones, and modded them with fitting purple mods as well. My weapons are also all the same caliber, the rarest ones with the most kick in them, so things are looking good. I'm at lvl 39 now.

  • @Sentinel-Beach

    Glad you're enjoying it mate. Hope the ending pays off.

  • Just beat the game.
    It was a fun ride that I was pleasantly surprised with. I really liked the attention to detail they had where for example characters would comment on (optional) things you did where it would make sense for them to comment on it, that the the side-quests you did made sense in the context of the world, etc.
    While the story was generally servicable I liked some of the characters and Aloy herself was a pretty well written and acted character (unlike say the rebooted Lara). The visuals were amazing and I took tons of screencaps (the PS4 update where you can use screens as wallpapers couldn't have come at a better time) and the combat was a highlight as well. I played the game on hard and I thought the balance was good all the way through and you had to swap between the weapons you used, exploit weaknesses and precision aim to succeed.
    It feels like a great first step if they plan on turning this into a franchise.

    Now, onto Nier. Hopefully I can finish that before Mass Effect comes out so I have some time to play RE7, play The Last Guardian and finish Gravity Rush 2.

  • I don't think I'm going to be able to beat this thing yet. I've tried like 10 times. This last time, I had it down to like 1/8th of his health and then some stupid bird swooped in and attacked me, and while I was distracted by the bird, I got lasered to death.
