Taking a break from the sci-fi shooter genre, developer Guerilla Games returns with a brand new IP all the while exploring a new game genre - the open-world adventure.
With Horizon: Zero Dawn, Guerilla Games made quite an impact at E3 2015. Most notably with a very distinct and creative art style that features numerous mechanical animals in a dystopian future, Horizon visually didn't look like your everyday open world game.
Yet after more and more walkthroughs and gameplay footage arrived that showed that the game indeed took quite a few inspirations from other notable adventure games, the question is whether Horizon: Zero Dawn manages to bring enough new own ideas to the table that prevent it from feeling like a carbon copy...
John Wick's story is far from over.
After leaving a remarkable impression with the surprise hit John Wick, Keanu Reeves returns as the ex-hitman in John Wick: Chapter 2.
Performing as a character that just after one movie became such a praised and popular name in action movies, the hype and anticipation for this second entry is accordingly big.
There is no question that John Wick: Chapter 2 will once again boast amazingly choreographed action sequences in which Keanu Reeves gives it his all.
However, it remains to be seen if John Wick 2 has what it takes to be as good or even better than the impressive first movie...
It has been quite some time since the developers from Team Ninja crafted a main console released game that is not connected to either Dead or Alive or Ninja Gaiden.
Yet along comes Nioh, an entirely new IP that though it shares quite some visual similarities in style with the aforementioned Ninja Gaiden franchise, is an entirely new game complete with an own gameplay style, characters and story.
Taking quite a few lessons from From Software's popular Dark Souls games and Bloodborne, Nioh promises a similarily challenging experience against numerous bosses and enemies in deadly terrains where managing your stamina and knowing to time your strikes correctly is key to success and survival.
Yet does Nioh deliver enough in terms of novelty to establish an own personality, or is it just a Dark Souls ripoff?...
