What is going on with Death Stranding? And should we even bother trying to work out Kojima's web of madness?
No we should not. He will never allow us to fully understand what he's planning, its how Kojima operates. We'll have to wait for the full game.
This is one game I am completely stay off YouTube for when release because I already know it will be flooded with spoilers intentionally just simply because it’s a Kojima game. I don’t want to see any single spoiler, this is a game you have to experience 100%.
Understandable, and good luck!
Just enjoy the ride. It is going to be cool (if you are a fan of the games he makes) no need to over analyze and try to understand before the game even comes out.
"And should we even bother trying to work out Kojima's web of madness?" No.
There are scores of real people out there who have prepared real analysis and revealed tons of information. The idea that all gamers are so stupid that we can't figure out anything without having it spelled out completely for us is kinda getting insulting at this point.
Folks can spin their wheels on this stuff all they want. I'm certainly not stopping them. I just don't see the point in dissecting images and references that may or may not actually be in the final game. To each their own. https://twitter.com/popcicl... https://twitter.com/popcicl...
People complain about mundane, repetitive Groundhog Day like experiences in gaming... But moan when they are offered a chance to think outside the box for a concept that appears to be fresh and intriguing. We should just be thankful that some studios are allowed the chance to be this creative with their concepts.
Especially when they own the IP and can do whatever the hell they want with it.
Publishers can still be a hurdle. He said, some studios are allowed the chance to be this creative. He's not saying that a studio is allowing a developer to be creative. In other words, the publisher is not trying to mess with the vision the studio has.
I doubt that Sony would tell Kojima and his team what they can or can't do creatively. They'll allow him to do his thing and in return they get a game made by one of the most creative, eccentric and lauded devs in the industry.
That's what I was getting at.
Exactly, I say just sit back and enjoy it. We have never seen anything like it and should be happy a game of this level can be allowed to be art for once.
I kinda like how Death Stranding seems different and has that Kojima weirdness to it. I'm intrigued with every trailer and the graphics are nice
Me today: So what is it about?. Me after i complete the game: So what was it about?.
nano machines lol. in all seriousnes can't wait to play this.
I love when games utilize creative freedom to give me something fresh. If it doesn't work out fine... but at least they tried.
From the creator of MGS3 I expect everything and nothing. Brilliance and utter madness.
No kidding. With the experiences Kojima has given us, I trust his vision in his own hands.
That's the beauty of it. Keep us guessing and to take us on a wonderful journey.
I would say wait for the game to come out.
Graphics seems improved. Hope we get to play this game before 2020.
Interdimensional beings that can only detect you by sound. Post apocalypse after scientists tear open a spacetime rift as in Half Life. Similar enemies idea to the recent movie a quiet place. Reedus is a courier of sorts running dangerous errands on foot. Btw this is all just speculation lol.
It's like a big scavenger hunt, but every clue is hidden in another dimension. I like these sorts great mysteries. They're super fun for the community.
i give up on small minded writers ( not really talking about this article) that are afraid to think outside of the box. especially when all we hear from these said writers is how games are all the same and lack any creativity, and then complain when someone like Kojima makes a game that obviously isn't following the same formula as the rest of the industry. there are only a few companies that take chances and challenge a gamer's idea of what a game should be. thank the gaming gods.
i gave up even caring about Death Stranding
the last gameplay shown didn't intetest me in the least
uth11 - Can you tell us again when the next trailer drops?
Yet you cared enough to comment and don't bother replying with some bollocks of "I can have a opinion" or some shite like that.
You run, or get eaten... what's not to understand? Guy obviously used his chest-fetus powers and morph-mask to conjure a coming-to-get-you hound... doy. Kids these days need everything laid out for them...
How about full game for free, non of us knew how Spidey, GOW, Horizon and Bloodborne would be feel and play like until we got them, athough these game have common genre and most of them got previous installments. Death Stranding totally new concept and new genre so its common sense to not understand it.
Guessing you like COD games right ?
I gave up as soon as the title was mentioned.
I've been critical of Kojima on and off over the years but I've got a lot of respect for people who try to break the mould, in any field, and that's what it looks like this game will do. He has got history for doing that. There isn't a lot known about it for certain and that's no accident but what I have seen has been intriguing and that fact alone trumps 95% of new releases which I might buy and enjoy but don't excite me because it's the same old same old in different clothes.
Kojima is giving us a unique experience though just the trailers alone. They are visually striking pieces of art. I am along for the ride all the way to the end. Just have fun with it.
Kojima is weird yo and you're going to love it.
The man is a genius wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma and deep fried in 3 different paradoxes for flavor. He loves paradoxes.
I'm all fine with this....I just hope it's not ambiguous and never explained by the time you beat the game. At worst, he probably wont reveal anything about why things are happening until the ending. lol. Long as the game is good, so am I.
No just enjoy the game when it comes out.
Whatever I saw in that TGS trailer was quite interesting, even if it didn't shed one iota of light in terms of, well, anything.
Your problem was trying to figure it out. Kojima is purposely vague about Death Stranding, just let it be a weird and insane game. Stop trying to think logical about the illogical. Don't frustrate yourself over nothing, just play it when it releases and have fun.
