One thing I will say Guerilla really should have used a different colour for the robot map symbols in the main game. I’ve just uncovered the entire map for Lost Wilds and just had several moments where I was wondering if it was the site for a new robot type only to realise it was clearly a rock.

Horizon was my favorite game of earlier this year, it felt it was quite fun and amazing and much more fun than Breath of the Wild. (I played BOTW first.) I platinumed this game without hesitation.
As for the “Gorrilla,” I was always under the assumption it was a Bear. It fits the setting and location more.

Mate, you’ve done a bang up job of summarising whether I should buy this with your final assessment.
I liked the original.
Ergo, I’ll buy this.
Dunno why you thought that was a bad summary.
That’s actually the most useful way to explain it!
Cheers!

I liked Horizon but it was a long ass game and I feel like I got my money’s worth with what’s there already. Gonna give this a pass.

Hm. I face a dilemma of sorts. I have not yet played HZD past the first mission where you leave the starter area. I have no knowledge of the story in any fashion aside from the few tidbits you learn during that last cutscene in the village.
I am also aware that Jim will only spoil in a final thoughts video, after the game’s release and time has passed.

My question for those who have watched: Is the content of the video a spoiler for HZD just by its nature as a story expansion?

There’s one vague generalization that can be taken as a spoiler, but overall, no.

Eh, vague means I won’t catch the reference since I won’t have the prior knowledge. Just didn’t want to end up watching re-runs on my lunch break.

I’m really looking forward to playing this when I get in. I’m curious as to how things will work as I’m in New Game+ with none of the Cauldrons done.
