Horizon Zero Dawn’s weird weapon system

Horizon Zero Dawn limits you to four weapons on your character at a time  – but you can swap them out for extra weapons in your inventory at any time.  Eh?

Horizon Zero Dawn lets you carry multiple weapons in your inventory.  I think it’s six or eight.

However during gameplay, you can only carry four of those weapons.  This isn’t a true limitation though, because at any point you can pause the game, go into your inventory and swap them.

Thus, in practical terms you have access to any of your weapons at any time, but only if you go through the rigmarole of inventory management.

Why have the inventory stage at all?   By letting me swap quickly between any weapon as you’re fighting, you’d encourage people to experiment in gameplay.

Speedrunners is a fun little multiplayer game

Speedrunners is a 2D ‘don’t get caught off-screen’ racing platformer.    It’s fun.

Up to four players can play at once, with the host able to put bots in to make up the numbers.   You race around Super Meat Boy style levels, doing multiple laps.

The screen scrolls at the pace of the person in front.  If you’re in last place and the screen scrolls past your character, you’ll die and have to sit out the rest of the race.

 You can hit people with missiles, turn them to ice and even swap places using a grappling hook.

It’s free on Xbox Live Gold at the moment.  Play it with friends; you’ll end up calling them effing sees.
