One of the best games to be revealed At E3 This Year was the PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn, a new IP from Guerrilla Games. Authors Rossco and Neal really were impressed by the game at E3, and talk about their thoughts on the title.
I agree with the title
I'm sold. But the title only mentions the ice on the cake. The gameplay sold the game for me.
It's like Guerrilla Games tapped directly into my brain. I always imagined an open world dinosaur game with stealth, and GG did the exact thing along with a new concept to make the game cooler and fresh. I mean, Robot friggin' Dinosaurs? It's like Turok and Zoids had a baby. The premise is top-notch. Let's hope GG delivers, and I'm confident they will. Good luck!
I really don't like the main protagonist other than that everything looks amazing about this game.
She reminds me of Ellie from TLoU but a grown up version. I like it. 2016 is definitely a great year for the ps4.
Honestly i'm tired of this type of female protagonists you see in this or tomb raider reboot They're just trying so hard to make her believable and innocent at least Dishonored 2 is doing something different.
How could you possibly not like her? Perhaps intimidated by strong women?
So you want a hack and slash character in an open world RPG...? It's not the game you're looking for, and that isn't the type of character or story they are trying to tell. I disagree with your opinion... It's more lazy to make a paper thin character who's sole motivation is to kill everything brutally. the complexities of writing a capable yet vulnerable, strong and well rounded character, a female lead at that is tricky... You do too much and it comes across as feminist, you do too little and it comes across as pathetic over sexualized... If you want Kratos with boobs play BAYONNETTA...
It would be nice if you could change your character, but I'm not sure how central she is to the story.
Aloy is her name and you can't change. The fact that she's the protagonist, means she's a central tenant to the story
Why in the world would you downvote this? Ok, I guess you can't change her character...I'm not cancelling my pre-order or anything, I still plan to play it.
Absolutely nothing wrong the protagnist at all so far. We havent seen much of her, so I dont know how you could not like her but alright. Anyhow, She seems very believable and likable. GG have done a great job.
What? So now a female protagonist is a bad thing. Or rather, an excuse to find fault.
I'm more than fine with a female protagonist i just want a deadly Brutal serious..etc type of Character .. you know like Female version of kratos or batman? the act of making her believable and innocent is just lazy and we have seen it alot in games.
Dark11 , let me tell you this. You have no right to force developer want to do their characters design what you like. You are just selfish, Dark11. Shame on you.
Hahahaha But where are getting that from? Are GG really making this chick innocent? all they are trying to do is a string woman in a post apocalyptic setting. If you really want a katros-like protagonist, go and play God of War.
That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. It's not the type of game where a Batman or a Kratos would fit. Such a character wouldn't fit the little bit of story we already know, or the world in which that bit of story is told. If what you want is another Nariko, you're waiting on a different game.
But even nariko wasn't like kratos or batman. Her Character had a sense of vulnerability.
you mean like nariko from heavenly sword?, anyway we still dont hows her role in the story, but the developers said the she's already a master huntress, so she's not that innocent
Female version of Kratos? Do you really want to play as a super muscular angry women? Sounds like you want a shehulk game.
@ Dark. Perhaps you should wait for the full game, instead of already have an opinion after a few minutes of gameplay. In my opinion Aloy seems to be a character one could grow into someone to be much very fond of.
I was sold on the game when it was said that former developers of fallout and witcher games were going to be part of this game.
I really hope they go nuts with the dinobot designs. Raptors with chainsaw tails PLEASE!!
That flying dinobot at the end looks awesome
It wasn't a dinosaur... It looked like a mechanical raven/hawk. Not all the machines are dinosaursesque... A few of them looked like mechanical deer. We saw 4 types... The are 5 types so far shown, "The Watcher" which looks like a mini raptor. "The Long necks" which look like Brachiosaurs'. "The grazers" which have antlers, and look like deer. "The Thunder Jaws" which are the T-Rex, and then they showed "The Raven" type at the end of the trailer. And they said there is more than just 5 so I'm looking forward to seeing more. The fact that they opened up with live gameplay tells me that they are far along with the game
The game looks like a different approach to Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. That game was just average, but this looks like it's better produced.
The concept of this games is golden. If Gerrilla executes it perfectly I have no doubt that Horizon will be one of the best games of this generation.
my only thought watching is what do they eat? why are they killing the 'bots? Why was the little one not worthy?? that poor little one.
Confirmed, Dark11 isn't into women.
loved everything about Horizon, Always wanted a game like this..Aloy looks pretty and strong.. Hope she achieves an iconic name like Drake and Kratos. I just hope we could ride on this robo Dinos and shoot and jump from one to another...
