GSY Video PS4

The Horizon: Zero Dawn demo shown at Paris Games Week is no different from the one we filmed in Tokyo a few weeks back, but Guerilla's game still deserves some Gamersyde coverage. That'll be all for Paris Games Week unfortunately, as we could not find anything new after briging you back so much footage from E3, Gamescom and TGS. Kudos to guts_o who had never used the camera before yesterday and without whom you would have gotten no footage at all.

He's talking about the 16bit compute. He was being sarcastic.

For reference:

"One of the features appearing for the first time is the handling of 16-bit variables - it's possible to perform two 16-bit operations at a time instead of one 32-bit operation," he says, confirming what we learned during our visit to VooFoo Studios to check out Mantis Burn Racing. "In other words, at full floats, we have 4.2 teraflops. With half-floats, it's now double that, which is to say, 8.4 teraflops in 16-bit computation. This has the potential to radically increase performance"

It looks great. But I'm still not sure about the gameplay. It looks very repetitive. If the only thing is the constant bow and arrow action in an open-world in order to make a new bow or arrow, this might be a boring game.
There are other weapons

It's Guerilla and that means it's very uncertain for me if I am going to like that game. Killzone was meh, Killzone 2 better but nothing too incredible, really enjoyed 3 but Shadow Fall was incredibly weak, except for the graphics. Reminds me a lot of Crytek in that regard, crazy visuals but meh gameplay.

The game is getting great previews. I just hope it does not build up the hype of witcher3 like game and then fall flat. From what I have seen it will be great game but better to keep expectations on check.

I get the Witcher comparisons but horizon is more sci fi than fantasy. There won't be magic and monsters like in the Witcher. Also this is Guerrilla's first open world game so people should keep that in mind as well

i think the big comparisons to the witcher stems from the fact they headhunted the witcher 3 devs, specifically side quest creators. and i think they got the writer and some other guys that made fallout new vegas. i'm not expecting a full blown RPG with huge inventories and items and loot akin to those games, but i'm expecting a very well made open world action RPG-lite.

I didn't know this, if Horizon gets side quests as awesome as in Witcher3 will be a definite win. :)

going how boring and suicide inducing the gameplay on Shadowfall was, the worst offender on a 3rd person open-world game is not having any meaningful "sandbox" interaction with the world or the gameplay mechanics not being remothely fun, like a mediocre game as watchdogs. this seems like its in borderline of that. I men... gun play that only works when you can actually aim with game locked slow-down? where is the pro players depth at?

All in all, it just comes as various somewhat shallow demos being shown, very "vertical slice don't deviate from the path or it breaks" that end in a cool at lest very nice and hard boss battle with the scorpion thinghy.

the explosion/stunned animation is horrible, they need to give naughty dog treatments to some of the girl animations, most of them she seems more robotic than the enemies.

What's up?
  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (22 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (22 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (22 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think it'll be down to next gen engines making use of it where applicable. So, basically, if a game allows it, hardware permitting, it'll be used. (22 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Yeah, that's the thing, isn't it? PC's are a bit too much of an open platform hardware wise for it to be standard implementation. (22 Hours ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot @MrWhite: How long until we see that kind of thing in PCs do you think? I guess consoles are more future proof than a current PC in that regard. (22 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite new api's that talk to gpu and ssd's are the exciting thing there. That'll be present in both console and PC, eventually. (1 Day ago)
