Horizon Zero Dawn (Guerilla Games/Sony Interactive Entertainment) is a post-apocalyptic merger of “Zelda:Breath of the Wild” and Transformers. You play as Aloy, a former outcast tasked with solving the problems of the community that ostracised her. The twist that differentiates this product from the pile of open-world, map clearing, objective hunting games is that in this one, the large majority of your obstacles will be in the form of giant machines shaped like animals. These machines are big, these machines are aggressive, and these machines want to kick the tar out of you.
Xbox systems come with 512GB to 1TB user memory, and PlayStation systems come with 500GB or 1TB user memory.

Rather than picking and choosing, or worse, deleting games, the WD_BLACK D30 Game Drive SSD proposes itself as a solution.

Throughout my life, two interests have been constant standbys: superheroes and video games. So when Sony announced a massive open-world, PlayStation-exclusive Spider-man game, I had to have it. But there was only one problem: I didn’t have a PlayStation 4, and buying a new one wasn’t in the budget.
While I have always played games on a PC, as a gamer there is no denying the impact and appeal of the original Sony PlayStation. Launched in Japan in late 1994 and worldwide in 1995, the Playstation signaled a new age in console gaming: 3D graphics, data stored on CD, and a huge wave of third-party support from software developers who had already started working with those technologies for the PC.
One of my favorite games of 2014 was Divinity: Original Sin from Larian Studios.

The Star Wars Battlefront games released for PC and consoles back in 2004-5 were a big hit with fans, and the fun online play kept players engaged for several years.
