Do you like it or play on PC?
After watching Tim Rogers' hilarious one hour review Death Stranding, I realized I'm not into Hideo Kojima enough to buy this game.
Another game I'll only watch on YouTube...
I was interested until I saw some actual gameplay.
Being a post apocalyptic UPS driver doesn't really grab me.
Being a walking simulator is the least of this game's issues.
I watched a stream and I must say it's the largest steaming pile of pretentious shallow crap trying hard to pass as 'art' I've seen in the last few years.
+100 What did you expect from Kojimi after everyone sucked his D over MGS1 to 5?
Dunno, I haven't played any of Kojima games before so I've no idea what they were about. Just decided to take a look at this one because there was a huge hype over it and Kojima himself in my country recently.
Sounds like Kojima in a nutshell.
I could at least tell it was a Kojima game when the first hour was mostly cutscenes. This garbage only needed a big name or else people would not buy it. I'll take Metal Gear Survive over that game anytime.
It's sad to see that MG Survive has more complex gameplay mechanics than Death Stranding.
Seeing it on Steam took me by surprise for sure. Wishlisted it and would like to get it on Steam, but I'm still gonna see if I'll get to play it on PS4 first since avoiding spoilers until 'summer 2020' is gonna be a challenge. :D
looked at pictures today, only 3 which told absolutely nothing, not interested in the slightest even if I knew what the heck it was but yay!
Jim Sterling has a good impressions vid of it and it's problems:
I like JIm review of this one. It is obvious he does not enjoy this partcel-delivery-simulator. But says that it will be enjoyable for people who loves to manage million things and have really realistic gameplay.
If I'd have game about delivering packages and my boots would get broken with time - fist thing I'd check before buying would be if there is mod for indestructible shoes.
It sounds like the ability to build roads will be one of the most satisfying parts of the game.
Except they erode and degrade and will disappear... Basically this game hates you
I had discussion with someone yesterday:
Nice, but I'd probably end up picking it on the PS4, way before its due release on Steam.
Going to be a very divided game.... this is basically the star wars prequels of video games.... what happens when you give a creator FULL freedom, and all YES men
I've watched some streams of it and I have to say the story and cutscenes are very intriguing and well done. But the gameplay looks very dull. It's basically fetch quest after fetch quest and you run at a snail's pace and there's some lackluster stealth thrown in. There are annoying and pointless mechanics like constantly keeping your balance while running when carrying loads of cargo on your back and peeing (yes really).
I think this would have made a far better movie than game. I really was fascinated by the story and what all was going on. But I don't know if I could endure the gameplay.
Also please don't pre-order games. It will almost always end in disappointment for you and it encourages shitty behavior from publishers.
The story is good as long as you do not try to think about it. Like how did they manage to build new cities and automated complexes without any roads leading to them. Somehow I doubt the crematory in the tutorial chapter was built by lugging its 25-meter chimney on top of the mountain by hand. But there are no roads leading to it.
The entire game is full of these inconsistencies and unexplained events. Then again, it is typical Kojima, most people do not even care to bother with his glaring plot holes.
The timefall deteriorated all the roads (lolz)
If you'd rather waste someone else's preorder money, try the public giveaway @ https://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/ITtny/death-stranding :)
Spoiler: there's a giveaway for a better game hiding in there somewhere... :)
This thread right now.
How is it pushing the boundaries of the genre btw?
