We already knew, of course
Long before loot boxes and horse armour, there was a different kind of gaming scandal engaging forum goers: was the Killzone 2 reveal trailer real or not?

News The Level of Detail on Horizon: Zero Dawn's Robot Dinosaurs Is Incredible
Mech it count
It's been said a million times before, but Horizon: Zero Dawn is a visual marvel. Its world looks so lush and vibrant, but it's the level of detail that probably impresses us most.
