Month of HZD: Nora love

Photo mode allows you to commemorate victories, capture dramatic intrigue and catalog bested foes, but did you know you can also use it for...what ever this is?

Month of HZD: Pink haze

Please excuse me while I kiss this haze.

Month of HZD: Up close

Reviews of Horizon Zero Dawn generally said good things about the character models, but complained that some of the facial animations were on the unnatural side. While I basically agree, complaints about the animation detract too much from the models, which are some of the best I've seen.

Month of HZD: Red sky's all right

I remember playing the "telephone game" in third grade. The original message was "Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning / red sky at night, sailors' delight." None of the kids in the class were familiar with the saying, so it gradually morphed as it went around the room. By the time it reached the last student, it had evolved into "Red sky in the morning / Red sky in the daytime / Red sky at night / Red sky's all right."

Month of HZD: The little dead tree that could

For people unfamiliar with Horizon Zero Dawn, it may be difficult to tell which of these screenshots were taken during regular gameplay and which were taken during cutscenes. This was taken during regular gameplay, but the game presented this dead tree to me in a way that made it look really important. It was as if Aloy's destiny rested with the fate of this tree.

But that's not the case. This is just a dead tree in epic lighting.
