That's really cool! Would it make building the highway harder as you need the resources they drop?Yes! That what all should. I never seen a video talk about it myself. You end up 100% focusing on your deliveries. I went out of my way to clean the whole map. If you beat the main story they all respawn again, so finish all side missions first, I would suggest.

I actually really enjoyed the BT fights believe it or not. They were visually amazing and it was fun when you could use the blood mist to make normal bullets really effective. I know I am the exception here though!
This is like the mules and terrorists you could wipe them out permanently but you had incinerate the bodies but then they wouldn't gather resources you needed again for the highway and other structures.
This is what's so good about the game nearly everything you do changes the map in some significant way affecting gameplay choices later down the line.
Again players that just bee line the story would probably see none of this. It was very revealing when a bunch players whined about delivering Mama across the map. No doubt these were the players that hadn't built up the highway or zipline network so they had to walk the whole way!
It not just about walking it's about building cool shit. The walking has to be a slog because you wouldn't appreciate all the cool gadgets you get later on that let you zip through the environment.
I may give it a try when i can buy it for 10 euros in a sale or something. Then i can decide if it was the best 10 euro i ever spent or not.
Lol people complaining about cut scenes in a kojima game have nobody to blame but themselves! Even if you think there nonsense there still good fun.I completed the highways! So satisfying doing so. No BT's don't gather shit AFAIK, and I think the Mules respawn again even if you kill them, some replace them. But I as you said if that is possible after some patches it's better to go non-lethal and enjoy their supplies!
Most of the ones hated about Death Stranding the same people that complain about "unskippable" cutscenes! Why even play the game if you won't see the cutscenes and enjoy the story!
It's a high risk high reward purchase! You may love it but you may hate it as well lolNever played Death Stranding but OP has made me curious to finally give it a go. I like Kojima, even if I think he has a bit of an ego and is a bit too close to Hollywood for my liking, but his games always stand out no matter what he makes - for better or worse.
Agreed on all points. It is a new genre. Makes you wonder what else HK has prototyped but could never make because of MGS. Leaving Konami was the best thing that ever happened to him.I loved the game, personally. It delivered an experience I haven't had 10,000 times already like every other game released these days. Kojima is batshit crazy for making this game - no other AAA studio/game would ever do something like this. Yes, it's flawed as hell and could seriously use some editing (fuck me for beating this game on a weekday and having to sit and watch the 2 hour finale at like 3 am) - but damn, it's one of the few games I will remember from this generation of derivative, soulless games that gets puked out, swallowed and shit out again every year.
I'm so glad Kojima gave us this game when he could've just re-skinned Metal Gear Solid to appease the masses and win an easy GOTY. Instead he released a bizarre, divisive game that stands alone. I understand people for hating it, in fact I'll probably agree with most of their arguments. All I can say is for me, it was the game I never knew I wanted and it gives me a sliver of hope the AAA industry can break through the cycle of big budget reiteration and down a path to big budget innovation.
Haha, it’s crazy you can do things like this. Superb game design.It was my goty 2019. I adored the gameplay. The late night sessions I had, with my bike breaking down and me turtle crawling with too much Cargo to a center. Fighting off enemies on the way. Or me spending hours gathering materials to fully build the road. Sometimes using two trucks at the same time to carry materials, switching between them on the road by driving with one getting out and running back to the other truck, lol. While also fighting off enemies with their electro spears.
To then come back the next day and get showered with hundreds of thousands of likes from other people.
Genuinely getting emotional at the last story beats with Cliff, Die-Hardman and especially the last BB sequence. Despite laughing at some Kojimbo typical cringe like Princess Beach etc. xD Which I am perfectly used to btw, cause MGS is my favourite gaming franchise and Jimbo my favourite director, flaws and all.
I would argue there is even more than that but probably worth a spoiler just in case.You don't just walk. You have time fall, BTs, scavengers, your cargo, and the geography to worry about. You plot your route and try to be as efficient as possible.
