Death Stranding

  • That was a weirdly constructed trailer, but OK, now we've got a videogame, consider me interested!

  • I guess I don't have that Kojima hype in me. I like how silly and corny it looks but still have no clue.

  • I had been losing excitement over the last year, as we had NOTHING, but I now understand the fundamental concept: We, as people, need to be kind to one another. I can get behind that, plus a LOT of the visuals were the best so far and I LOVED the song.


    While I am thankful we FINALLY got to see what gameplay looks like, I need to see reviews and hear gameplay impressions before fully committing. Still, a 2019 date is MASSIVE.

    In conclusion: I'm interested Mr. Kojima. But I still need impressions from others outside of KJP

    I like how enemies are knocking equipment off your bag, and you have to retrieve it. This comes following the reveal of things like the ladder and rope equipment in your menu. I hope that if you lose equipment it stays gone.

  • I hope I don't offend anyone with this but this trailer looks like one of those budget sci-fi series on Netflix I'll never watch. This is one I'll definitely wait for some trusted reviewers to speak their minds.

    So it's Love and Respect: The Videogame.

  • @axel I think EZA should look into litigation X-D

  • Blown away by the trailer. It had such a good pace and brought me all over the place, my mind wandering where this game is going and how it'll play out.

    The animation looks exactly like MGS V which I love to look at, I even love the feel of EVERYTHING in that game, but in hindsight, it plays a little slow for an action game. We'll see how this game feels.

  • Trailer looked cool, had to watch it without sound so I'll need to give it another look when I get home.

    Am I the only one that doesn't think they will hit their Nov 8th release date. I hope they do, my B-day is the 7th and if they meet this release date I'm for sure taking the 8th off.

  • @themarcv Meant to say that. I'm counting on them missing this date.

  • @e_zed_eh_intern Sony's track record of getting their big titles out in the Fall just haven't been good. They always get pushed to the beginning of next year. I hope I'm wrong here.

  • @themarcv I wasn't even thinking about Sony but good point. All those things reported about Kojima always making lasts minute changes always reminded me of that episode of Family Guy where Peter was directing the play.

  • That was interesting and does have me intrigued about what game will end up being like, but not so much to rush out and pre order.

  • @e_zed_eh_intern Yeah, I don't completely recall but MGS V was delayed after it got a date wasn't it (almost just assume all big AAA games do now a days). I almost feel this date is just to state we (Sony) have a big game coming on this holiday, we aren't going to rely on just third party stuff this year, to only delay it around August and say the game needs a few more months for polish and then were looking at a 2020 release date. I don't care if we have to wait till 2020 to play it, just don't get my hopes up when we both know this thing ain't see the light of day in 2019. Again, would love to have to eat my words on this one.

  • Well eff me sideways, that was a trailer! I must've had a pretty stupid look on my face watching that, one full of both confusion and admiration. This feels like something truly unique and epic. I'm not even sure how much I'll like it but oh boy, I'm getting this Day 1. It'll be my first Kojima game, too.
    And to have Apocalyptica playing in the trailer, sweet. Fit well.

  • The MGS V feel is getting stronger, with how Sam punches enemies, the AR-esque UI, and the gun combat. I think I have some sort of idea of the lore, but I'm excited to have it all blown away when I experience it for myself.

    Also, excellent music choice as always.

  • EZA tweeted that they'll react to the trailer at 2 PM Pacific, maybe a little later. But soon, anyway!

    I haven't very much liked anything Kojima Productions has made since the MGS trilogy fifteen years ago. This trailer is still too vague to get my hopes up over. I'll wait until I know more. Until we have uninterrupted cutscene to gameplay to menu videos. I say menu because you were looking at menus much more in MGS5 than in, say, MGS2, to the detriment of the game.

    I think they'll hit the release date. You have to remember that a large part of MGSV's development cycle was developing Fox Engine, and Konami is in no small way responsible for much of the game's development issues. Hell, Kojima even hid messages about it in Ground Zeroes.

    All in all, I'm so unbelievably fucking down for this game. From Reedus basically doing his best Snake impression to the animations being indestingishable from MGSV, I want it all.
