Horizon: Zero Dawn

Recommended Posts

U-turn.

So kept on playing because the game looks insane, but more so because of buyer's remorse. Then I entered my first cauldron and that changed everything. Really loved the change in scenery and what is happening inside it. Was under leveled and was out of ammo while fighting that bellowback...somehow defeated it by melee strikes with almost the last ounce of my health left. It was intense....then spent time crafting better weapons,carry capacity, unlocked more skills and now I'm completely hooked :D

 

The sights and the music while I was traveling to Meridian :O 

Personal favorite moments so far -

Spoiler

1. First sawtooth kill. Fight wasnt that difficult but man the atmosphere....

2. First cauldron.

3. Road to meridian.

4. Thunderjaw.  Had seen it in the E3 video, but seeing it up close for the first time in the game :O

Keep playing. I dont even like open world games yet I thoroughly enjoyed it. Only thing is that I started using fast travel after 60% of the game.

^^Yup,just tried my luck with that thunderjaw and got my a*s kicked. Cant wait to unlock more skills and weapons and get my revenge :) 

Just a heads up, if you can't get the parts for a new weapon, you can buy them from the vendor in meridian with the scraps.

finished the game, story does pick up well in second half. Overall though i did not like the character design, Aloy character was just too one dimensional. and the animation in cut scenes were just average, expected better. Still a good one time play, with fluid gameplay and hunting machines is fun.

Hahaha same here, plugged in new ips monitor to ps4 and everything looks insane. earlier was playing on 720p tv upscaled to 1080p :P. But now the games are looking insane, esp. this,uc4 and driveclub.

:) That gameplay mechanic where you hide in grass, check for machine's walking pattern using scope, throw a stone and then one button stealth kill was so boring in the beginning. With weak weapons and without the skills like double shot, slow down time...was kind of forced to use stealth route. Its hilarious to see these futuristic machines unable to scan through the grass where I am sitting just a feet away :lol:

 

But the combat and the gfx now.....(not my gifs)

Yeah the watchers are just tutorial enemies, once you start encountering bigger dudes it gets pretty hectic. Eventually you level up and can run circles around them, but you will remember the first time you meet a sawtooth or a snapmaw or a stormbird and thurnderjaw.

Yet to face them. Stats say game is about 23% complete. Still so much left to do :)

Snapmaw  :majesty:  Man the machines keep on getting better and better :)

 

I am always short on blaze to craft better weapons...spent almost an hour, just killing watchers, ravagers and 4-5 of those flying machines.Not a single blaze received :( . Tips?

The best way to get Blaze is from Fire Bellowbacks. Grazers should have them too. Use Harvester arrows to knock it off them. Try the Nora Hunting ground trial to farm the Grazers for Blaze. 

 

EDIT: Also, wait till so encounter Stormbird and Rockbreaker. This game is nothing short of magnificent when it comes to enemy variety.

True..The variety of enemies in this game is too good!

 

For me though the best machine fights were against thunderjaws in the cauldrons or fighting thunderjaws during those hunting challenges...
