So pretty! I recently looked through my screenshot folder and HZD won my attention span. all they need to do for the sequel is fix the 'climbing', jumping up a mountain felt rather silly.

After all this time you and Horizon are still delivering the goods Eric.

Like it's my job, til the day I die, or when HZD2 launches, whichever comes first. Let's hope 'Horizon One Dusk' lands waaay before then, lol

With my partial Dutch background and Hannah's Dutch to digital transition, I can't help but agree.

LOL. That's good, because I'd rather it be called 'Horizon One Last Dusk'. HOLD.

Her name is Hannah Hoekstra, and yes she is a Dutch actress. Apparently she became famous by playing a fairly naughty girl in a more European style movie. Who could have guessed? Not sure how to properly pronounce her last name, but if its the way I think it sounds, it explains the naughty bit. lol.

Well with SIE cracking down on 'toxic masculinity' and making sure woman aren't too realistic, I don't see that ever coming to pass. Doesn't stop the imagination though I guess.

 Me neither it was an aside to your European style movies, talking of crackdowns   Should Sony making sure women aren't too realistic be making sure they are more realistic like the Alyx Vances and Aloy's of the gaming world. gaming is no longer if it ever was the domain of testosterone laden teenage boys, and you can have sexy women without them being sexualised, there is room for large breasted women showing off their midriffs and cleavage , it's just that it's become a lazy staple, where you have scenarios that show  a person dressed in not much more than a bikini moving through a freezing winter landscape  while a complaining  about how cold it is.

I want more characters like those mentioned by name but I want the games themselves dictate how they will be portrayed both emotionally as well as physical,rather than some PC correct mandate from above, because you have to be careful that the intent of making it harder for certain games that use titillation as the main selling point doesn't  create a splash across the whole sector, especially when it coming from above without much engagement with those at or near the splash point . gee I rambled on there instead of talking pictures sorry about that.

For me personally, it just needs to fit the type of game and story line. If the game is about chicks in bikini's playing sports, with realistic or overblown physics, I don't really see the problem as long as there aren't any 'wardrobe malfunctions' in game, and make sure it's rated properly.

In terms of HZD, trying to 'pimp out' Aloy by creating Miami Beach Dawn, would be a horrible decision. They could potentially add romance into the story somewhere, but it's the kind of game where the door would close behind them and the screen would fade to black.

The devs no doubt know what kind of audience they are after for their games and straying from that initial vision and narrative will lose them fans. I don't see why SIE should be sticking their nose into those kind of decisions, aside from their own first party if they wish, and maybe those select few third party games that obliterate the finest of lines, if they exist.
