Pre-Rec: Horizon Zero Dawn

March 9, 201767 Comments

Rich and Jack play Horizon Zero Dawn on the Playstation 4, a game that has a horizon but several dawns… so the name makes very little sense.

  • Mario Grueso

    Seriously? Horizon: Zero Dawn has Zero comments?

  • RLMkeepitup

    the video should begin with Rich yelling ‘this game makes no senssse!’

  • Child0fLight

    It’s already sold out here in stores! Had to tripple check the release date today because I couldn’t believe it. Put some dinosaurs in your game and kids will buy…

  • Ubik

    But can you climb the trees?

  • kapsi

    Looks like a Tomb Raider clone

  • jic1

    It has well over 900 comments on the YouTube page, which has been up for two days. Don’t know why it took them so long to post it here.

  • Jaws

    CGI baby is not creepy at all.

  • jic1

    Only in that it’s an action game featuring a pretty woman with a bow. Other than that, it doesn’t seem much like Tomb Raider at….

    Oh, was that a reference to the ‘clone game’ bit from the Nioh review?

  • LameSame

    What is a “reference”?

  • LameSame

    I like video games. Is this one?

  • Kevin Maginnis

    Her name’s alloy, she better not be a fucking robot.

    Your avatar gets me wet.

    I don’t often play computer games but I watch and enjoy these because it’s RLM.

    Two comments.

    1) That’s one Celtic looking Native American.

    2) I like the couch, letting us see both of you rather than just switching between close-ups. It feels more like being part of a a conversation, which feels more like I have friends.

    Jack Packers and That’s Rich Evans! I hope hunting dinosaurs is what the next Jurassic World is about.

  • Frank Lovejoy

    Yeah, but YouTube comments are Internet AIDS.

  • Frank Lovejoy

    Anybody want to sign my petition protesting this game for not having any playable male hero characters? I mean, I heard they asked the makers why they didn’t, and those lying sacks of shit said it would COST MORE MONEY to MAKE and ANIMATE the ASSETS!

  • I Shot J.R

    Funny, you should hear what they say about us!

  • I get what you’re doing but it isn’t helpful to your “cause”. Also – would that not be true? Not only would that mean a bit of extra work for their modelers/animators, that would also mean pouring a bit of effort into making that character likeable – AND getting a new voice actor to do every single line in the game. Not to mention rewriting every bit of dialogue that references you as a “her” to “him” – which would quite likely require extra work from many of the voice actors.

  • Jaws

    Although, some voice actors are versatile enough to do both. Mel Blanc, remember him.. just get him.

  • Keith William Gretton

    I agree with Rich, precision aiming requires mouse for accuracy without frustration, I just don’t get why PS4 doesn’t have mouse/keyboard control as optional that they mandate developers support.

  • Brian Levine

    I just need to know if it has monkeys. Cus’ I’m all about the monkeys.

    Horizon Red Dawn?
    Horizon Zero Dark 30?
    C&C Horizon Generals: Zero Hour?
    Horizon One: A Robot Wars Story?

  • jic1

    Only because they got promoted when the IMDb forums were shut down. Before that, they were Internet Hep C, at best.

  • jic1

    “Also – would that not be true?”

    I think that’s more-or-less his point.

  • jic1

    I tried to get Mel Blanc once, but apparently “grave robbing” is a “crime” or something.

  • bernverdnardo

    Yep, will not play any shooter with a joystick. Its like trying to play football with a neck brace.

  • RLMkeepitup

    surely that’s the worlds biggest shelf of nukie by now..

  • Frank Lovejoy

    Whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooosh!

  • If there was a sense of irony in his post I did indeed fail to pick up on it.

  • Yeah no I get it, you’re doing it in reverse. I’m still going to reply like you’re being serious. I don’t do the irony thing. Your point is to bash people who cry out for equal gender presence in games that don’t necessarily need it – but because I find that pointless and without a proper goal I’m just going to act like you meant what you said word for word. I don’t see this as some huge plague on video gaming that needs to be tackled – name me one game thats development has been hurt by this.

  • I think maybe my brain flipped the script because I started thinking about it literally like “well… animating a single model isn’t THAT big of an issue” – but internally countered with the fact that there are probably larger issues at hand than just that.

    Was that a Funko Jack doll??

    I profited $104000 in last twelve months by doing an online job from my house and I was able to do it by w­o­r­k­i­n­g part-time f­­o­­r 3 or sometimes more hrs every day. I followed a business opportunity I was introduced by this company i found online and I am excited that i earned so much extra income. It’s really newbie-friendly and I’m so thankful that I found out about this. This is what i do… http://www­.­wzurl­.­me/qRID1Q

    Watched Karuta tournaments on youtube this week. Surprisingly addictive! It has supersonic fast action, funny comments and girls! Rules are easy to understand, too.

  • Frank Lovejoy

    I went to a pizza place last night, and I _thought_ the pizza was delicious. Then I looked in the kitchen. It was all Italian males! And I _know_ you can’t make a good pizza if you don’t have a diverse and inclusive staff behind it. So I yelled at them for tricking me. Sign my petition! With your help we can this racist, xenophobic business!

  • Ivan Demidov

    I think a good analogue for analogue stick aiming (without auto-aim) to mouse aim is what aiming using the arrow keys (or D-pad) is to analogue stick aim

  • LameSame

    I agree. In one of the streams, I believe Jack was using a mouse to aim in a PC FPS, but he had a little half-controller he used with just one stick and some buttons in the other hand. I was pretty interested in that combo.

    It looks like the same ole boring shit, I fucking hate games like this.

  • bernverdnardo

    So were you guys going to review Zelda or what?

  • RLMkeepitup

    well they normally don’t do timely reviews but maybe they discussed it on twitch by now

  • michael_riggs@mail.ru

    I was paid 104000 bucks previous year by working from my home a­n­d I did that by w­orking part time for 3 or sometimes more hours /daily. I used an earning model I came across online and I am amazed that I was able to earn so much extra income. It’s beginner-friendly a­­n­­d I am just so blessed that i found it. Here’s what I do… http://gee­.­su/I9BHM

  • LameSame

    Bring on the re:View with Jack already! I wonder who the other host is. Was told they were working on that weeks ago!

  • LameSame

    They mentioned on Twitch the other day that they are going to review it. In fact, that was the game they were streaming– “we might as well, since we’re going to review it.”

  • TheVerySpecialK

    You tell ’em, chuck.

  • LameSame

    New episode of Review tonight! The one with Forrest MacNeil though. Which is just as well!

  • andy

    Yeah I know right? You play as a human with arms and legs and shit? Fuck this game.

  • LameSame

    Probably because having the peripherals as an option would throw the entire balance of things out of whack between the haves and have-nots… it’s a big floodgate to open before people adjust to something like that, I’d imagine

  • Popo Bawa

    It kills me that Playstations have USB jacks but that one can’t use one’s preferred controllers. It’s so easy to just have an all-purpose keybindings/controls page. It seems like just another deliberately crippled area of console lock-in

  • Popo Bawa

    If you can’t see an avatar’s genitals, you don’t really know what sex it is, you’re only guessing.

  • Popo Bawa

    They did it all for the Nukie.

  • Popo Bawa

    I hope that the game can also be played in first-person, especially for VR. I don’t understand for the life of me how/why people find the 3rd person out-of-body experience to be more immersive than looking out through your avatar’s eyes. It bugs the hell out of me and even after decades of trying I can’t get used to it.

  • Frank Lovejoy

    You insensitive, heteronormative bigot, just because a woman doesn’t have a vagina doesn’t mean she’s NOT A WOMAN!!!!

  • Popo Bawa

    I said that you wouldn’t know what *sex* their biology is, not what gender they might identify with. Point being that in either case, the only way to know is to ask.

  • Frank Lovejoy

    Are you implying that there is some objective way to categorize people, and reality isn’t shaped by their hormone-influenced whims?

    What are you, a REPUBLICAN?

  • Popo Bawa

    Or am I a REPUBLICANT, from the off-world colonies?

  • kapsi

    No, it was just what I wrote.

  • Keith William Gretton

    It doesn’t with PC. Almost every cross platform PC game I play has optional controller support and bindings. Since the hardware architecture is x86/x64 on PC, PS4 and XBOX ONE I really think it is an anachronism that consoles don’t support the best FPS controller.

  • jic1

    OK, well, then: besides being a an action game featuring a pretty woman with a bow, it doesn’t seem much like Tomb Raider at all.

  • LameSame

    Right, but that’s choosing a control option with more troublesome adding, in most cases bringing about a handicap (as most PC players would see it). These are two extremely different situations in my opinion.

  • Thanatos

    Same reason Microsoft has consistently nixed support on the Xbox – if they allowed it, their lowest common denominator multiplayer bro shooter user would get absolutely destroyed playing online, which would crush their fragile egos.
