During my first six hours with Horizon: Zero Dawn a phrase appeared in my head and got lodged there, as phrases like to do when you write for a living. The phrase in question was “This is once-in-a-hardware-generation stuff.” It stuck with me as my playthrough progressed, and it wasn’t until I’d been away from the game for a few hours that I started to wonder if that was true at all. Horizon: Zero Dawn is a  beautiful pastiche of some of this hardware generation’s best titles. It casually lifts its favourite things from other, equally great games — be it mechanics, design or even art style — and throws them into a blender. Far from being lazy or trite, it works hard to either equal or improve upon everything it borrows — and the result is a new high water mark in the open world action-adventure genre.

Video Games Review: Dishonored 2 (PS4, 2016)

I was in the minority when the original Dishonored came out back in 2012. When it seemed like the entire world was throwing roses at the game’s feet, I found it to be a competent if uninspired homage to the Thief series with a few superpowers thrown in. Dishonored 2 is certainly a better game than its predecessor in many ways, but it also comes with a set of entirely new problems. Continue reading Video Games Review: Dishonored 2 (PS4, 2016)
