Late Gamer Plays Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps

A Review From Hidai Moya

This has to stand out as some of the best Downloadable Content of the 8th Generation.
“The City That Never Sleeps” continues Spidey’s adventures in New York City, as he pairs up with Black Cat & Silver Sable to take out Hammerhead.
I am so amazed at how Insomniac makes the gameplay feel so fresh & new with its level design & missions (it’s not just the same tasks we already played in the main game). There are some outstanding action set pieces, particularly the final showdown with Hammerhead that are so well made, it makes you feel like a kid again with how cartoonishly fun it is. They also did the right thing by bringing Screwball back, a fantastic secondary villain with joyfully hilarious voice acting.
The writing continues to be as sharp & witty as well, with Spider-Man having, once again, great lines.
This is DLC done right. Quality stuff here.

Late Gamer Plays Horizon Zero Dawn

A Review From Hidai Moya

Though imperfect, with room for improvement in the sequel, there is a considerable amount of love & passion that emanates strongly from this game.
It is the dazzling mechanical creatures, apart from its alluring heroine, that are the real stars of the show. The machines here are unequivocally some of the best creatures in gaming history. So incredibly lifelike in their movement, the combined great AI & the best animalistic animations I have ever seen, are a marvel to behold & are a labor of love. This, in turn, makes the combat breathtakingly cinematic, especially when paired with the game’s phenomenal bow, a weapon that makes all other bows near shallow by comparison.
It also has the added advantage of having some of the most beautifully manufactured landscapes of any open world title.
This is the birth of a new & phenomenal must play franchise.
