Horizon: Zero Dawn

The D.I.C.E. Awards nominations are out, with female characters and Horizon: Zero Dawn getting a lot of love

The early months of the year aren’t just awards season for the film industry, video games get to have their time in the limelight as well. On February 22nd, the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences will host the 21st annual D.I.C.E. Awards, essentially the video games Oscars, and today they’ve unveiled the nominees. While it’s literally just a list of what games the Academy t...[Read More]

Charlie’s top three games of 2017

It’s that wonderful time of year again, where a stream of completely subjective lists flood onto the internet and stir up emotions. Well, rest assured dear friends, this is the only list out there that is 100% objective and based upon hours of scientific research. My opinion on video games I enjoyed this year is a seminal piece, and not in the least an arbitrary list of things that one perso...[Read More]

Tom’s top three games of 2017

Wow, another year has gone by already? I guess I should have noticed due to the mania at the shopping centres and another mediocre Star Wars movie screening in cinemas (don’t @ me). I suppose that means it’s time to make an obligatory Game of the Year list. And for me personally, 2017 is a hard year to pick a top three from because to be honest, there weren’t that many mind blowi...[Read More]

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds review: More of a great thing

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Understandably high up on many game of the year lists, Horizon Zero Dawn was already an immense, and brilliant open world romp in its vanilla form, so the idea of having more of the game to plough through is enough of a reason to give DLC, The Frozen Wilds, a go. What we have here is an expansion that adds a whole new area to the world map, i...[Read More]

Horizon Zero Dawn review: Life found a way

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by PlayStation.  Taking you to a time where herds of robot goats gracefully stalk post-apocalyptic ruins, Horizon Zero Dawn has a rich setting and compelling narrative. On paper the premise of robot dinosaurs mingling with tribes of cavemen is kind of silly, it seems like something I would have day dreamed about as an eight year old Fortunately, Guerrilla Games have ...[Read More]

The moment Horizon Zero Dawn finally clicked for me

My relationship with Horizon Zero Dawn has been somewhat of a shaky one since launch. I spent maybe an hour or so playing before the arrival of Breath of the Wild, only going back to it after I’d cooked my way through Hyrule. Two or so hours back into the robot apocalypse I found myself thinking what all the fuss was about, sure it was good, but not great. My main issue with it was a blend o...[Read More]

Horizon: Zero Dawn developers talk moving from linear shooters to open-world RPGs

Horizon: Zero Dawn, the Playstation 4 exclusive Sony has been showing off for quite some time now, is just around the corner so pretty soon we’ll all be running around developer Guerrilla Games’ post apocalyptic, robot dinosaur infested world. In anticipation of the launch, Playstation Australia have released three behind-the-scenes videos about the development of the game. As well as ...[Read More]

Hands on with Horizon: Zero Dawn: The thrill and guilt of the hunt – PAX Aus 2016

Personally I found the big publishers were a little bit underwhelming at this year’s PAX Australia. I guess this is a subjective viewpoint, but there was just nothing from the major players that screamed “I must check that out.” There was no Playstation VR station, or Dark Souls III and Cuphead demo that I just couldn’t leave PAX without seeing. A majority of the major play...[Read More]

New Horizon Zero Dawn trailer reveals March 2017 release date

Remember Horizon Zero Dawn, the seemingly prehistoric open-world action game that’s really set in the future and has actual robot dinosaurs? Since it made a huge splash at the Playstation E3 conference in 2015, the game faded into the background with not a peep coming out of Sony or the developer, Guerrilla Games. For me, it took the little flyer included in copies of Uncharted 4 last month ...[Read More]

Charlie’s most anticipated games of 2016

  We’ve already discussed how 2015 was one of the best years for gaming in recent memory. With the likes of The Witcher 3, Bloodborne, Fallout 4, Rocket League, Metal Gear Solid V and Halo 5 there were some amazing games that dominated the market and our spare time. 2016 has a lot to live up to, but there are enough titles set for release this year that could make it another to remember...[Read More]

Horizon Zero Dawn to be an open world RPG, says Guerrilla Games

– Tom Heath Horizon Zero Dawn made quite the impression during Sony’s E3 presentation last month, being a new IP from long time Playstation developer Guerrilla Games. Their first non-Killzone game in a long time, the pre-historic themed, post apocalyptic, robot dinosaur hunting game looks like quite a shift from their comfort zone. Few details were given as to the specifics of the game...[Read More]

LoadScreen’s E3 highlights

– Charlie Braithwaite Merry hype-mas everyone. So far E3 has been distracting a lot of people from work and making wallets preemptively weep all over the world. So without delay, let’s have a glimpse at our E3 highlights so far. The Last Guardian No wonder Sony kicked off their conference with this, the game has been in development since 2007 and was rumoured to have been mothballed last yea...[Read More]
