  • I’m so excited!!!

  • iamtylerdurden1

    The trailers actually explain a ton about the story. This game could be Game of the Year. Death Stranding looks incredible.

    • I’m still confused about this game. These videos didn’t really give me enough to want to buy & play the game.

    I was worried the development cycle for this game wouldn’t allow for the minor details and obscure little thinks Kojima is great at, but after these glimpses we’ve seen, I’m excited. Why I need to piss in a game, I don’t know, but it’s a good sign there will be quite a few mechanics all going at the same time.

    Nah

  • I have some theories on Deadman. He’s either one of the founders of BRIDGES or the top researcher and he died during the Death Stranding but he was able to upload his consience into a computer so that he can continue to work on the BBs.
    Going by the release date trailer, Cliff was a member of BRIDGES and might have started the BB research so he and Deadman have that connection.

    • Nice one and also Mads himself confirmed Cliff is not a villain despite Kojima wanting us to believe he is.

  • While this still remains one of my most anticipated games, I can’t help but feel a bit concerned that release is less than 3 months away and I’ve yet to see the fun factor that the game offers.

    I mean, Kojima has never disappointed in the past, but with all his previous titles he gave us lengthy demos with a clear look at fun gameplay mechanics in advance, e.g, octo-camo, rolling in barrels to take out enemies, idroid etc. in MGS4. Walker gear, sliding down hills in cardboard boxes, rocket arm, etc. In MGSV. I’m just not feeling the same hook with climbing ladders and urinating. The melee combat and motor cycle traversal that we’ve seen does look like it could be fun though. And the story definitely has me intrigued.

    I’ll remain cautiously optimistic for now. I’m sure this is all a part of Kojima’s master plan.

  • Cannot wait for this game. It just has that classic Kojima weirdness about it that made the Metal Gear franchise my favorite of all time.

  • artful-oddity

    Yes agreed…Just too much eager for this game.Kojma is something of next level but also u need to admit Metal Gear itself has made lots of ammendments..Hopefully will eveyone will love it

  • Seems like a lot of busy work, to me. i mean… do we really need this much filler in a video game? It’s pretty and all, but every gameplay video reminds me of riding to the next boss in Shadow of the Colossus, without the satisfaction of accomplishment that game delivered.

    • Damn…I’m excited about Death Stranding but you described it perfectly in a way I always felt like but could never convey into words.Perfect comparison…I have that feeling about Death Stranding too…hope I’m wrong.

  • So there was another video of Death Stranding shown at gamescon calle “The Briefing” that gives a better synopsis of the game.

    I want to see the video whenever it’s released but my interest in this game has waned a lot.

  • While undoubtedly interesting, I haven’t seen anything fun in the gameplay… You are just walking around and pressing X here and there?

  • This looks amazing! I love the weirdness of Kojima’s games, but I don’t really care for the military themes of the Metal Gear series. This should be a nice change.

    PS. Hey Sony, why aren’t you releasing any more PS2 emulations? It’s been over a year since the last one. We still need Tales of the Abyss and Tales of Legendia. Get with it!

  • By time the game comes out, even *I* am going to be in it. :D
