Some Naughty Dog screens

Naughty Dog are struggling to do anything wrong right now.

This is evident when you take a few seconds from the action too appreciate the beautiful places they’ve allowed us to adventure in.

Horizon: Zero Dawn – Review

The three anchoring qualities of Horizon are: the world, the machines and Aloy herself.

HORIZON: Zero Dawn has the characteristics of a soaring eagle, bursting from a cage after years of captivity.

For the past decade, Horizon’s developers, Guerilla Games have rigidly stuck to the First Person Shooter genre, severely limiting their ability to show us what they are truly capable of.

First Dragon Quest XI footage

FINALLY, here’s a look at Dragon Quest XI.

I’ve been waiting for a full size Dragon Quest on a home console since VIII.

Ni no Kuni scratched the itch a bit but this is what it’s all about. A solid single player experience and mahoosive world to stroll around in.

DRAGON Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King is my favourite JRPG.

The art style is beautiful, the story is sweeping, battling is basic but addictive, the world is huge and the sound track is sublime.
