Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4)



  • Oh, that doesn't mean anything to me, I was asking about completion #s. :)



  • Oh hmm 34.13%

    U?



  • Dunno right now, am at work.

    There's a screen that breaks down how many main/side/errand quests you've done. I'll check mine when I get home.

    Just curious to know. :)



  • Game is fantastic, everybody should play it, that is all!

  • It IS truly majestic at many points. I finally got to Meridian, and sweet almighty those views on the last leg of the trip, just before the city itself. Breathtakingly beautiful and detailed. I'm just falling in love with this one more and more.

    I'm at 20.96 % as I now quit (it's 2:40 AM, heh). Got a bunch of side missions from the city, so much to do. And I saw that giant robot from the game's cover art. NOPE! Stayed hidden behind some rocks and passed it silently. Another day, my lasers and missiles wielding giant robot dinosaur freak of a thing.



  • Current Stats 18.5 hours into the game:

    18.46% complete (on pace for a 100 hour playthrough!)

    7 main quests
    3 side quests
    3 errands



  • Wheee!

  • Horizon might just be my favourite PS4 exclusive at the moment. Maybe it's the fresh goggles talking, but it's really that good. I'll probably play UC4 after this just to compare them, since I'm really liking Horizon way more than I expected!

    A solid 10/10 from me, but I can easily see why some people would give it a 8/10. I just don't have fatigue from open world games, I haven't really played Mad Max or recent Far Cry or AC games. So this is right up my ally, and I enjoy the design of everything way more than Witcher 3.

    Also the adaptive/dynamic HUD in the options is a must, it gets way too cluttered later on in the game, but if you have that option on it fades away and gets less in your face. You can immerse yourself and enjoy the sights way more.



  • I'll throw my hands up and say that I wasn't overly optimistic about Horizon: Zero Dawn. But a friend invited me round to go through the first few hours of the game. Fuck me, I actually really bloody love it already! It's actually quite spectacular! There's so much to love here, especially the art direction and the soundtrack. And I'm really enjoying the narrative. In terms of structure and characters, does anyone else get a Lion King vibe at particular points?



  • So my BF started to play the game after we went to see Logan on Friday.

    With that stuff with Rost...
    He had an emotional day.



  • @Inustar

    I am going to see Logan today. How is it?

    Who here discovered the armor that makes you

    Literally invincible?



  • @Art I've heard stories about it. :) Like here in real world, not yet in the game. Gonna be sweet when I eventually stumble upon it.

    But aah, haven't been able to play in over 36 hrs now. Around four hours to go until I get my hands on it again. I'm in Meridian and I've got a bunch of side missions now, still even in the first area, Nora grounds. I think I'll put the main quests for a hold for a while now and come back there to find some collectables and do the hunting grounds stuff and just level up a little in general. I mean the way to Meridian was pretty threathening, gonna need some upgrades for those areas to better survive.

    Kill as many real life animals as you can.



  • @Art Yeah, I've noticed that it's often some fox or boar "part" that I'm missing when trying to upgrade my pouches. Also some fish part?? Haven't seen any fish yet, although to be honest haven't actually searched for either.


  • Banned

    Every once in while you can spot a single fish floating in the water.



  • 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.



  • but AM I TAKING CRAZY PILLS!??

    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!
