It is time. You know what the list is going to look like. I know what the list is going to look like. So let’s get to it….

Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4)

The wait is finally over, and it appears to have been worth it. I started Horizon last night and only a few hours in, but I am already quite smitten. Many games would be happy to create either an interesting world, engaging combat, or an excellent story, but Guerilla has managed to do all three. Horizon is clearly the next big PlayStation IP, and even as I fully explore this game, I cannot wait to see what is next for it!

Horizon. Zelda. Mass Effect. Persona. When did Spring become the best time to be a gamer? That is even ignoring the excellent slate of games that have already come out (Nioh, Yakuza 0, Gravity Rush2, Resident Evil 7, Tales of Berseria, Kingdom Hearts 2.8) and some niche games also on the horizon (NieR: Automata, The Show). Spring 2017 is setting this year up to be one of the best years in gaming ever. It is now up to the rest of the months to fulfill the promise! What are you playing this week? Did I miss anything?
