As part of the New Year celebrations, the official account of Kojima Productions not only congratulated its followers, but it also showed a peculiar design that is already hinting something to talk about.
I'm all for skimpy fan service armor, but that armor would be ridiculously off balance and just about as impractical as if she didn't have any armor.
That's her secret cap, she's always unbalanced so her armor is unbalanced to make her balanced.
Don't be ridiculous, you two - clearly, she breaths through her right thigh! 😁
I don't know. I expected much more complicated and fancy stuff for a female luden armor coming from Hideo nonetheless.
Are you two talking about the realism of a character created from a game developer logo symbol??
Once you recognise the secret reason for her exposure, you will feel ashamed of your words & deeds.
I just put it down to being . . . .a fictional video game. . . . I mean if can can scale building size creatures. . Shoot blue orbs from my hands and single handedly take on an army. . . .a lil off balanced armour isn't going to ruin the dream. . . . .
@The Wood Just to be clear, this particular example doesn't bother me at all because the Ludens aren't really related to anythings yet, but that's kind of a stupid argument that people always seem to bring up. No matter how outlandish or fantastical a setting is, there is always going to be a logically established (relative to the setting) tone and context. I feel like the anti-SJW backlash has made it hard to admit when creators are just being hacky and pandering in some of the random crap they throw in their games (especially when it has to do with sexuality, for whatever reason), and while I support their right to do that, I also tend to appreciate it more when they put forth a setting and context that is completely cohesive.
Lol, nice. I'm still waiting for that secret reasoning to make me feel ashamed. Haha how about just tell us the truth Kojima!
Clearly, her left leg, right shoulder, and back of her head are her weak points. So she has them adequately protected. Safety first!
I have seen women fight in armors that resembles that one in real life battles. So yeah she will be fine...
It's a video game.
I don't even consider that skimpy, she is barely showing any skin at all.
Kojima and team know what they're doing and always deliver excellent design.
I love how she is holding that mask. Imagine how dope she looks with it on.
I really liked Quiet's design, but this is looks really bad. This whole game looks strange though.
Its always practical.to leep a thigh exposed
Prosthetic arm and leg from the looks of it, maybe no need to fully armor or protect those to limbs.
Maybe the "exposed" parts are cybernetic and don't need protection ;) ;) Or maybe it's just a conceptual design that shows off the suit and human parts simultaneously. It's a cool piece of art either way.
This is hilariously bad.
Sorry, I'm not a Kojima fan. I think his games are awful, I think his stories are worse, and I just think most of what he makes is just plain "weird". And Death Stranding just looks like it's going to follow in more of his typical weirdness. I think the actual design of his company's mascot character is amazing, but this just looks silly.
i agree. i think he tries to be weird just to be weird, and some people eat that up.He lost his lustre after MGS2 on the OG Playstation
Uh, MGS2 wasn’t on the OG Playstation lol! Your experience with his games is negligible. MGS3 was arguably the best in the series. Just replayed it for the plat. MGS4 was a great sendoff for all the characters imho. One of PS3’s most successful exclusives critically and commercially. MGSV has the best gameplay in the series bar none with 2 nice 60fps open worlds and online FOBs which added to my 170hrs + playtime. I ate mucho crow on that one as I never thought I’d dig it as much as I did. Safe to say we just don’t like the same games. No lustre lost here, but you do you.
Who said anything about the OG PlayStation? I have owned every PlayStation ever. I actually played mgs 1 and 2 before I gave up on Kojima.
Krib said OG Playstation right below you. I was replying to him, not you
Looks cool to me. Also looks like concept art. Doesn't mean it's the final version.
It's actually a fan art. Before it was posted directly from their account they had retweeted it from a fan.
Stephanie Joosten confirmed! Lol jk but she was caught hanging around Kojima Productions not to long ago, but I would too if I had access to that place!
That's hot, pretty cool! cosplays will be tight man.
