Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

Even with the possible little flaws people might point out on this one, it's an absolute no-brainer right now. Plus it's the Complete edition!

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

I went ahead and bought it yesterday. I have bought so many games, that I should be able to fill my next three years of gaming time.

Finally finished The Frozen Wilds DLC this evening.

The last two battles in the Main Quest were insane.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

The ending pretty much indicated there would be a sequel, no?

A number of newly published job listings from Guerrilla Games suggests the studio is indeed working on a sequel to its 2017 open world action game Horizon Zero Dawn, with one vacancy in particular seemingly confirming the project's existence outright. The Amsterdam-based creator of the Killzone series recently posted a vacancy for a Technical Vegetation Artist, which would focus on "the creation of vegetation assets that are used to dress the game world." The listing explains that "within Guerrilla, we have four teams dedicated to creating the stunning environments of Horizon [and] one team focuses on the creation of lush and stunning vegetation."

Yep, the ending pretty much sets up a sequel. Hopefully it comes out a year or two after the new console.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

I bought this game a few years ago... played for an hour. Then went back to Breath of the Wild, but always intended to go back to it, but then Spider-man was released and that took up my free time.

Fast forward to last night, where I popped the game back in the old PS4 and quickly caught back up and then some.

Played it for 6+ hours today and ended my day...
Spoiler:
Leaving Motherís Heart after being made a Seeker and defeating the ďdemon machineĒ... not find a Strider to control.




Iím really enjoying it.

Have you crafted any
Spoiler:
Tearblast Arrows
throughout the game? Those did so much heavy lifting for me when I initially played the game.

I ended up setting the play mode to ďStoryĒ and walked through that battle. When I got topside, I found a merchant, got a bow capable of that and got some ammo. Iím all good to go now.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

Iím still enjoying the game but man, some of the battles are intense.

First you find yourself fighting a pair of Ravagers, then two Chargers show up, then a convoy of two Shell Walkers with two Watchers, come down the lane... and then you see four Glinthawks coming over the ridge... GOOD GRIEF.



By the way, I just got done climbing to the top floor of the building...
Spoiler:
... and met Lance Reddick face-to-face (through the Focus). So cool.

I had so much fun with that Ammo.

It's awesome to just see parts fly off of enemies, giving you an advantage when fighting many of them.

I had forgotten to switch ammo when i got ambushed above by some bandit archers, so I show up there and the tear arrow sent out a shockwave and blew them all off the roof.

I put that up there with the first time I accidentally used an Ancient Arrow on a pesky pack of wolves in BOTW.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

PC version reviews are starting to come out. Some performance issues at 4k and there's no DLSS 2.0 support which is a massive bummer. Otherwise people seem to be pretty smitten with this game at/above 60 fps (PS4/Pro version is capped at 30). Additionally, a lot of positive comments for the keyboard and mouse crowd as the precision apparently adds a lot.

Look forward to giving the game another shot when it drops in price. I sold my PS4 copy a while back (albeit at 1080p/60fps with an Xbox One controller.)

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

Reviews have all pretty much been negative in regards to the PC port, as there are many issues... not just "some performance issues at 4K". I'd stay far away and wait to see if the issues ever get patched.

Yeah, the initial reviews focused on choppy 4k, the ones that followed were nowhere near as nice.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

Hopefully they'll fix it. It's an amazing game. Just wish they wouldn't rush out ports.

Death Stranding port on PC is rock solid and I'm enjoying the hell out of it right now. 50+ hours so far and no crashes with a solid 60fps on the highest settings.

Re: Horizon Zero Dawn - PS4

In an effort to clear out my backlog, I've been burning through Horizon. Great game so far; I have the map open except for one more tall neck, or whatever they're called.

Does this game have any way to effect the time of day? I usually don't have an issue with it but this game during the night is very hard to see. Even when it's actually night out and I don't have any bright lights on.

Also, is there any specific side content that's definitely worth doing? I probably won't go for a full completion so I can move on to something else. I know I'll be completing all the cauldrons; I think I only have 2 left. No way I'll be grinding for every hunting ground trophy for the "Lodge" gear/weapons.
