Stop the presses, folks! Ryan Clements actually played a video game. That’s right, the Blogcast is back and we’re talking Horizon Zero Dawn — a gorgeous experience that Clements finally started.
Across the diverse set of studios, offices, and teams that make up PlayStation, there’s one trait we all share: we love games. And since Horizon Zero Dawn launched on PS4 in late February, many of us have fallen hopelessly head over heels.
We’ve become enamored with Aloy, staggered by the scope of the world, and awed by the stunning visuals Guerrilla Games has crafted. Perhaps none so more than Naughty Dog Creative Director Neil Druckmann.
On this week’s Blogcast, Sid and I recount our favorite stories to come out of GDC ’17. We also ponder the finer points of the “clicker” genre, look forward to the sleeper hit-to-be Disc Jam, and share stories of our adventures in Guerrilla’s Horizon Zero Dawn. Finally, a thought-provoking listener letter kicks off a discussion about overhyping games and expectation management. Enjoy the show!
Good news! The official soundtrack for Horizon Zero Dawn hits Spotify today, available now on PlayStation Music. With its driving tribal rhythms and stirring vocal performances, the Horizon Zero Dawn soundtrack is a huge departure from Guerrilla soundtracks of yesteryear. Listen to the full album here, a week before it’s available anywhere else.
We didn’t forget about you! This week, the gang weighs in on critical hit Horizon Zero Dawn. And a solemn promise from me: no more dark secrets. I heard you! Enjoy the show.

A world in beautiful ruin has been overtaken by machines. Humanity lives in scattered tribes, struggling to survive. And a single hunter uncovers long-buried secrets that could change it all. Welcome to the post-post-apocalypse of Horizon Zero Dawn, an action RPG that launches next week on PS4.
Even the earliest thrilling iconography of Horizon Zero Dawn could be split evenly in two: on one side, there’s red-haired heroine Aloy, bow taut and ready to fight. On the other, the hulking, immediately intriguing design of an animalistic machine.
This mechanized threats, so intrinsic to the world’s ecosystem and its overarching mystery are already iconic. The nimble Watcher of the earlier reveals has become a PlayStation event cosplay mainstay, while the hulking Thunderjaw has been immortalized in the game’s fantastic artwork.
It is my pleasure to be able to share the launch trailer for Guerrilla’s new title, Horizon Zero Dawn. This is easily our most ambitious project that we have taken on.
