Horizon Zero Dawn [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Horizon Zero Dawn is a game that would be easy to compare to a few others, most notably Far Cry and Shadow of the Colossus. The end result, however, is something completely unique. The story is much deeper and impressive than I would have anticipated from a game that was sold under the guise of "shoot robot dinosaurs" and the mechanics are much better than the classic "kill animals for materials to make better weapons to kill animals" loop.

The Pros: 

+True next generation graphics and artist design to showcase it.
+Deep gameplay with an appropriate learning curve to make it an obsession long-term.
+A story far better than it ever had the rights to be, considering the platform it was sold on.
+Playstation's best reason to own a console to date, and specifically to own a Playstation Pro.

The Cons: 

-PR's sales pitch of the game is a double-edged sword. The mystery might have intrigued a majority of gamers out there, but much more would have been interested to know how deep the well actually goes and what it's all about. Rating : 

At first glance (or play-through) Horizon Zero Dawn is a game that draws immediate comparison to other “hunter/gather” style games, most notably the Far Cry series in its more recent incarnations. Once you’ve progressed past the initial moments of the game, though, other’s will come to mind like Dark Souls and Shadow of the Colossus. By the time you get to the third act in the story it’s easy to compare the story to something like Bioshock in its scope and twisting turns.

Want to get into the Socom 4 beta? Then get ready to buy Killzone 3

With a reported April release date, anticipation is running high for Socom 4 as it marks the return of the series to developer Zipper Interactive. For the past few months Zipper has been uncharacteristically quiet on the multiplayer front but that’s finally going to change next month when the Socom 4 multiplayer beta launches.

First details on Killzone 3

Today feels like an early Christmas of sorts since it’s rare that a game announcement gets the jaded gaming masses hyped up. We all knew that Killzone 3 was coming but damn, who thought we would get info before E3 and that the game would be maxing things out in the awesome department? So what can we expect from Killzone 3?  Well how do arctic levels, jetpacks, and new weapons sound? Oh yeah there’s one other thing, Killzone 3 is going to be in 3D. Complete mind explosion.
