    Package delivery simulator. you vs the environment gameplay.

    the game looks beautiful and i like the contrast between the generic barren human structures and the overgrown reclaimed world.

    yea i dunno if this will hold me over a 30 50 hour game that loop but certainly intrigued enough to play it on pc at some point.


    if your a pew pew cod kiddy yea this not a game aiming for that demo i imagine :p.

    Kojima biggest knock via "gamers" is he made interactive movies. so you had 45 minutes of gameplay inside a 3 hour cgi movie.

    then he gets mgs5 the first open world mgs trying to tell a story, games fubard konami will not even allow kojima inside the studios to work on the game he has to pass notes based on his assistance's notes. large parts of the game have to be scrapped because kojima was taking too long, sure the working conditions had NOTHING to do with that thought at all konami.

    for better of worse death stranding is kojima unchained. and this time he does not have a publisher treating him like the enemy. can he tell a cohesive narrative and a good core story inside this game? some think he has others dont. one plus for kojima is he produces games and work something he has been accused of not being good at, or dragging his feet on. this game sure came out fast. shrug.

    IGN review seems pretty legit. No spoilers, focuses on gameplay mechanics... But yeah, it looks like most of my concerns about this game have materialized :)

    ign usa gave it a 6.something every other ign outlest gave it 8 or 9s.

    confirmation bias? most outlets scoring in the 8 to 9 area seems the more legit take is it is a very good game not a barely good game.

    It's IGN USA... unless paid for scores are usually low.

    You mean like Gamespot? "It's a game that requires patience, compassion and love" - 9/10 :) Yes, I guess... if you have such patience to do these fetch quests all day with a BB on your chest and broken fast travel, it's a game for you. But honestly I don't understand what is going on with some game designers these days... They should have their heads checked.

    While I do agree with a fair amount of the comment that you are responding to with this above quoted comment I have to say that was some funny sh*t dude. Nice one!

    'and yes, that's a ghost detecting baby strapped to his chest'

    annnnnddd I am out! Nope sorry Kojima we put up with enough of THIS cr*p with the MGS series their is no way I am suspending disbelief to allow ghost detecting babies to be a thing.

    I suspect this game will be a commercial failure. I just don't see the gameplay having any sort of broad appeal.

    I'll also get it on PC just to see that Decima engine in action :) I actually don't care about the game I never enjoyed any Kojima's game.

    ^ little wierd hope you end up liking the game.

    how close is decima to the mgs5 engine? they look awfully similar graphically and mechanically. the foxhound? engine in mgs5 was amazing with lighting and environments. and if anything this looks like a more evolved take on the engine.

    or did that stay with konami when he was forced out?

    Konami kept the Fox engine I believe.

    The Decima engine was developed by Sony’s first party studio, Guerrilla Games and was used in Killzone: Shadow Fall, Horizon Zero Dawn and Until Dawn on PS4.

    This will be the engines first outing on PC so it’ll be interesting to see how it looks.

    Hm. Looks boring. And yes, there seems to be some undeserved hype around Kojima for no apparent reason? That kind of fandom usually happens with people who have done something truly amazing in the past, but I can't find something Kojima has done that qualifies.

    Seems MGS and being dumped by a big nasty game developer qualifies.

    The game seems to be extremely boring so i´m gonna pass it and wait for it to be free on PS plus... Maybe then i´ll give it a go.
