Hideo Kojima has finally revealed the first gameplay footage from Death Stranding and it has turned out to be a completely different game.
Game looked soooo pretentious and awful. I don't know what Kojima was smoking when he made the trailer(maybe smoking is mandatory to "get" the game) but I have zero interest in this title after seeing it. Will get down votes from Kojima disciples :)
It was only a handmade silent trailer with no explosions/gun fights. Be patient. Kojima always do this :) http://n4g.com/news/2178292... https://twitter.com/HIDEO_K...
Honestly first impressions are lasting... Wish I wouldn't have even seen it.
You’re entitled to your own opinion, as am I to mine. Thus I voted to disagree.
Looks like trash...you guys know it but since its hideous it gets a pass.
Wrong mate - it looked better than anything shown at that other conference. It will be unique and interesting at the same time.
I think you're being downvoted because it's a dumb comment, nothing personal.
What?? awful?? where??
Borefeast just like mgs5 Kojima has lost it.....
Wow that was pretentious ? really dude ? This game is easily the most interesting game this E3 ! I can't wait to see more. And what were you expecting up votes ? lol this guy And no you are not getting down votes from KOJIMA DISCIPLES.. you are getting down votes from people who actually have good taste in games and value originality.
Lmfao, combat was optional in EVERY Metal Gear also. Filthy casual.
Yup, and there is a trophy for it
You are such an elitist, and over video games. That is just depressing.
No you get downvotes because you basically judged the entire game by a trailer that didn’t seem pretentious and awful.
I think it was brilliant. Hes not going to show everything with it so far out but its so damn different. Theres weapons, theres stealth, theres cool characters, & some freaky ghost demons. A baby, time warping, & great actors. Maybe its too cryptic for most but metal gear trailers were just as mysterious.. This is Kojima with a huge budget. Give the game time to cook before dismissing it. Hell, we didnt even see the human enemies yet. He has experience & a unique style. Have a little faith. He's earned that much
If you took the time to criticise some specific things you didn't like instead of just saying that it "looked soooo pretentious and awful" you might have people actually engaging in a discussion with you. The last sentence of your comment however seems to indicate that you're not really interested in a discussion.
I agree with you. I do have question regarding walking in the vast barren waste land though. I hope that it is more like small segment (skipping scene) not like an actual open world where you actually have to walk. I can understand trying to convey the desolate theme, but if you actually have to walk for hrs, it will just become a drag rather than something meaningful. Like a good YouTuber, you edit and cut your video, showing what need to be shown. Showing everything make it uninteresting, and god know if someone gonna stream walking sequence (i hope isn't true) in death stranding from beginning to the end.
You expecting kojima to just throw everything out there? Like HERE this is the story people you dont need to find it out for yourself! And did you really play mgs? Because if you did then you clearly should know that kojima is al about teasing his fanbase. And the trailer itself looked amazing. The traversal, climbing on the mountains and the environments looked stunning. Cant wait for the next trailer!
Buying this game is thankfully not mandatory either.
And you don’t understand Kojima work really. Combat is optional just like previous metal gear games. The main character does carry a rifle. So yeah, Kojima always hide his gameplay.
I'm with ya. I lost all interest. It was the only game of the conference that made me say WTF.
Isn't that a good thing? Don't you want to explore the world and have the story unfold before you? or would you prefer everything laid out in front of you?
@oldboy. I won't be having anymore comments about this game. I have no interest in it. I'm certainly not going to insult kojima or anyone who is interested. The whole video just weirded me out, it's not for me.
Up to you mate - but that's what a Kojima game are all about, weird characters, story lines. I don't know why anyone would expect differently going by what's been shown beforehand.
Pretentious and awful = not good choice words dude. Basically if you want dialogue use netural words. But you don't want to your own.
Awful applies to GoW - the dialogue was cringey and sooo cheesy. Almost so bad it's good in a way, but still bad.
Doesn't make any sense to me right now. Must be trash. /s
I agree, i still want to see the game part. What will the actual gameplay have me doing, right now I don't know so I can't say one way or another if I am going to pick it up.
Please tell me what the game is about so that I know why I should not be interested.
you need to remember that the game is in maybe 2 years of development at this point so give it a rest. 2020 the game will come out.
Do you understood what this game is all about? What the gameplay feels like? I'm in the same stage without knowing what the hell is going on and I will find out once the game ships I trust in Sony and Kojima Productions and if you believe that he would bring such big names to produce a crap game that is pretentious and awful my friend I don't know what to say to you... Maybe you should wait for Gears 5 that looks worse than Gears 4.
LOL sure bug whatever makes you sleep at night.
I actually thought The last of us part 2 was waay more pretentious.
Kojima always hide the gameplay like previous metal gear games because he doesn’t want to spoil the surprise. You get downvote a lot because you made a dumb statement.
You know that is also a thing in the Metal Gear Solid series right...? Nope lol. You get a downvote for not know what yu are taking about and you yourself being pretentious for doing so.
Day 1 and to answer one of the biggest question will it come later to PC, this trailer below answer it in the first 5 seconds. https://youtu.be/rP3UngLFou... Only on Playstation baby
As much as I want to believe that its "Only On Playstation". Remember Yakuza series, they said on 2017 or 2016 that it will stay as Sony exclusive. Look at it now. Its coming on the PC. Don't be suprise if Kojima will announce a year after it release that a PC version is coming. I guess the Persona series is next in line to get into PC gaming. F*ck Sega. (so tired to search for the article but just type yakuza and persona ps4 exclusivity in google)
Thing is Sony never, on any video or commercial for Yakuza or Persona 5 said "Only on Playstation". Correct me if i'm wrong but on Yakuza 0 and 6 box art it clearly says "PS4 Console Exclusive game" and on Persona 5 box art it doesn't says anything. Also Sony never on any promotial youtube videos for both games didn't said "Only on Playstation", so it's not true that Sony promote that for these two games. "Only on Playstation" label is only reserved for the games like Uncharted, God of War, R&C, Gran Turismo etc., so only for the true, full Playstation exclusives. So yeah, Death Stranding is full, true PS4 exclusive. 😉
Uhm im sure they said its just a error on printing on yakuza. Where in the persona 5 case that i have, has a "Only on Playstation"
But the thing is that Yakuza series is own by Sega Third Party publishers, so i’m not surprised. However, Kojima is using Decima Engine which is GG ( Sony First Party ).
"Uhm im sure they said its just a error on printing on yakuza. Where in the persona 5 case that i have, has a "Only on Playstation"" Uhm i'm sure they didn't said it's just an error because it says "PS4 console exclusive game" on the box of the both Yakuza 0 and Yakuza 6, so i highly doubt a company like Sony would made the same mistake twice. I don't know what box of Persona 5 you have, but the official box art is without "Only on Playstation", it doesn't say anything like on all the other multiplatform games. Box art of the Persona 5: https://www.amazon.com/Pers...
I think they are pulling a MGS 2. I am almost guarantee it
What I love: The atmosphere. The tone. The bending of reality and the extent at which one is able to sense the changes. The playing of time. The ability to make a montage out of carrying supplies. What made me chuckle: The thought came to me that this'll be the most intense postal service delivery game, ever made.
Yeah, you really felt the struggle of Daryll aimlessly carrying metal packages around what appeared to be quite a lifeless open world.
I don’t think it lifeless. And I was right. This game is set on Iceland.
Nothing so far about it looks fun to play. But still very intrigued. Love the art and atmosphere.
how it's fun? Almost every game these days we get lay out the information before we play the game but Death Stranding is one game that we know 0 about and I am pretty sure we love it because of how surprising everything will be.
Have you play any metal gear solid games ? Kojima always hide those gameplay in trailer before the game come out.
I do enjoy the mystery. Feels very Lynchonian.
I loved the parts where he was walking. You can feel the tension as he walked around. The mood was so eerie when he walked from one place to another. Then when he turned on the baby light and started walking again, I could tell how deep the story got and the way the existential meaning of life was represented through each step as it relates to a false reality that we as people can never see, only after we pull back the veil of our own illusions, this is only after you walk of course.
How can mirrors be real if our eyes aren't real? Metatrolling. I love this.
The more I see of this game, the more questions I have. It was an odd choice to only show the movement without combat, but I'm definitely intrigued.
In the post conference interview he said that you can go in guns blazing but he doesn't recommend it as it seems it will be much harder that way
You see him carry a gun in the trailer.
Before any of you complain, combat was also optional in the MGS series.
I personally think its great. I wanted to see combat but we all know its there. His gun inside that compartment thing looking over a base. Stealth action in a trippy sci fi world with FN time manipulation & umbilical cords.
In many games, we are the hunter. In this game, we are the hunted.
Oh excuse me *stifles yawn*
Still no gameplay. From the trailer, till the moment he almost took out his gun, I would have thought it was a delivery simulator game. ANyways, will not be interested till they show detailed gameplay.
Lmao.. This some real bs
Nope, that’s not BS. Can you tell his previous work on MGS ?
I love the look of this game. Great music and atmosphere, and amazing visuals. The story seems cool too, though some of that dialogue was a little bit expository. I hope the final game is more show than tell. Also glad to hear that combat is optional and that Kojima kept his word about the whole "rope instead of stick" thing. Felt queasy after all that glorified brutality at e3 (The Last of Us 2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Ghost of Tsushima, Rage 2, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and more. Like jeez, enough already - y'all game developers have some demons. I don't even want to know how many kids tuned in).
Day 1 ppl
The whole gaming community has praised Kojima his whole career, and now most of you doubt him because of a trailer. Geez
Kinda reminds me of that movie, Oblivion starring Tom Cruise
That is awesome, freedom in playstyle can be a lot of fun like we had in his previous games.
fine by me :D
This game gets more and more intriguing by the day. Kojima was always cryptic in his game so this is nothing new.
