    Death Stranding is an 86 Open Critic.

    Higher score than Gears 5 and Outer Worlds.

    Congratulations Sony and Kojima.

    Valfaris is tremendous.

    • Niceee!
      I am thoroughly enjoying O.W.

      Indeed, congrats to all the hard working people at Kojima Productions and Sony.

    • Death Stranding became the first video game I’ve ever cancelled my preorder for (and I don’t preorder games as frequently anymore). I’m sure others will enjoy the game, but for me, it looked way too mundane. I can just experience the story by watching it on YouTube.

    • What is Open Critic?

    • Ralstonizer

      So…you don’t know what mundane means?

    • Mundane: “lacking interest or excitement; dull”

      I sure do, babe. I was referring to the gameplay, not the story.

  • thedeath12_

    Death Stranding and NFS Heat for me

  • Mercenary09

    Why is Destiny Connect on this list? It came out weeks ago.

    • It’s because the previous digital version of the game that came out weeks ago was the “Destiny Connect: Digital Launch Edition,” so it lets people know that, that version of the game will no longer be available and it will be replaced with a regular version.

    • SoloWingKiba

      Thanks for clarifying Meygana. Sadly I’ve only gotten about 10 hrs f play in but its somehow nostalgic and modern and i love it.

  • SidNightwalker

    I don’t see how anyone could not have some hesitation towards Death Stranding, it seems as it could be deeply flawed. Review scores are quite irrelevant these days since “professional” reviewers tend to be quite clueless or paid off, for the record.

    • Mercenary09

      Do your research before going into it then.

    • the_highstepper

      This seems to be a more artistic magnum opus via his perspective of the world that he has always existed in

    • Tatanka2007

      @SidNightwalker, I agree with you. After reading some of these paid, er, professional reviews, as opposed to glancing at the ratings, I’m rather disinterested in Death Stranding. At least at launch prices. It sounds like a rather boring cinematic heavy take on Mudrunner from the reviews I’ve read.

    • Ralstonizer

      Sid, that’s a pretty weird thing to be confused about for someone who has a David Cage game avatar.

      Tatanka, sounds like the paranoid ramblings of a child who can’t afford the game on their allowance.

    • SidNightwalker

      Hahaha, if you can’t see the brilliance of what David Gage comes up with then you’re a complete simpleton. Spare me.

    • EightBitArtist

      Ralstonizer: the typical kojima fangirl that has to defend the game to anyone that doesnt think its the greatest thing ever.

  • Time for my weekly request for video links.

    Also a big yes to Death Stranding and Valfaris!

  • Italianlaaaad2

    what happened to black sad ..releasing?

  • Audica for PSVR for me over anything else based on how much enjoyment I have gotten out of Beat Saber. Don’t know much about it, but made by Harmonix, hoping it will have great music and very enjoyable music just like Beat Saber.

  • The hype for Death Stranding is real…entering in YT blackout today,can’t possibly risk spoilers.Also getting NFS Heat but that is in a long future since I’m way behind on the NFS games and seems like Sony wanna bring the movie-based games back…curious about that Jumanji game.

  • FinalMiracle13

    Death Stranding 100%

    Don’t know if Nfs heat has been having positive buzz so unsure about that one.

  • Drop that Death Stranding on my lap baby! Next few days will be so hard to wait for it. The level of detail, hidden gems, and quality of presentation has always been superb with Kojima’s direction, expecting nothing less with all that I have seen so far.

  • Can’t wait to see all the whining a few days after Death Stranding is released. The overhype for this very slow looking game is stupid. It doesn’t matter if the game is made by your dev hero if it sucks. *shrug*

  • Silent_Shadow

    Death Stranding, reconnect the world one step at a time. Literally, one……step……at…….a…….time..

    I wonder if there’ll be timed missions. Get your delivery in 30 minutes or less, or you get the baby free.

  • NFS Heat is been in quiet mode since Gamescom,kinda worrisome. I don’t know if review embargoes lifts on Tuesday but the amount of silence must be this game has the usual EA monetization tropes and they want the noise to be quiet as long as possible. Or at least that’s the vibe they give when they don’t do too much coverage weeks close to release.

    Care less what Giant Bomb and what those other mothereffers are saying of Death Stranding, it’s a game that I’ll get so.

    • The only bad thing about the silence is that it gives room for certain kinds of people to create all manner of fearmongering and made up accusations.
