New Death Stranding Trailer.

Taken from Reddit:

"Ok I just had a thought while watching this trailer. Every person has a literal baby inside them. That is why when the dude is getting sucked up into the void he uses a knife on his chest. He is aiming to kill the baby not himself. He would have used the knife to the eye for a more instant death. The baby is almost like a parasite in many ways. It needs a host to survive. The other baby in the tank is on a form of life support because it was extracted from another human host. The void also needs the babies as sustenance but needs them alive. Maybe the strands are a form of umbilical cord. Quick thoughts of this really unique game."
He tried to shoot himself in the head first though, so not sure that holds up.

MaKTaiL should've read the comment under that post on reddit. Because that guy thought the same thing. I don't think that theory hold up at all. Or at least not exactly like in that post.
 
Trailer was interesting and weird af.

BUT, i'm worried about 1 thing at least. After MGSV's keither sutherland.. he practically NODDED throughout the entire game, cos it would cost too much for more lines or something? now it's norman reedus i'm just so worried he's gonna be another silent nodder.

PLEASE tell me the protag actually talks in this game. I know he did in the trailer but for 8 minutes he barely said anything.

You mean 1000% neo Kojima.
THIS so hard. It's like people didn't notice the huge difference between the genius that made MGS1-3 and the pretentious parody of himself who made 4&5...

If old kojima made this trailer, I'd be thinking "OMG what is going on here there are these crazy invisible creatures what could they be!?!? I'm so excited to find out and then have that knowledge destroyed by some mind blowing reveals!"

But since it's neokojima, all this imagery means is "I dunno nanomachines something something..."
 
It's just strange imagery with zero context to me. It's either going to be a fucking masterpiece, or an incoherent mess. The main thing that's causing me to remain just a tiny bit skeptical though, is the fact that it's supposedly open world. If MGSV taught me anything, it's that Kojima style storytelling and open world design just don't go together. Hopefully he knocks this one out of the park.
THIS is supposed to be "open world"? wtf... Yah, I'm sorry, but Kojima games should N.E.V.E.R. be Open World.
 


interesting, found this on reddit


its the "Bridges" badges pre and post crater

so i feel like the game is centered around a crater that hits, what looks like to be New York, that sets all the events in motion

"The next explosion will be out last"
 
I have no clue what I just watch but I want to buy it and play it. I hope Kojima kills this and Konami regrets the way they treated him. It looks amazing visually and I think alot of people will buy this to see how it plays out and support Kojima's first venture on his own.

To be fair, the very concept of stealth in an open world is just awful game design. That's part of the issue I had in MGS3. I'm supposed to be stealthy in a wide open are with no radar and no cover? Sure...

They fixed the camera eventually so it wasn't as bad, but it's still awful...
 

Speedwagon

Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel. Yabuki turned off voice chat in Mario Kart races. True artists of their time.
Sort of reminds me of a movie I saw on a recent plane trip, "Prometheus"
 
The world is decaying and the baby is the only hope left, he gives special powers to the main character so he can keep protecting him. It's a symbiosis relationship, and thanks to this he'll be able to save the world. I think the baby can bend the whole world to his will more than those weird things.

That's my guess :c
 
3rd trailer and we still have zero idea how it will play, what will the game design, level design controls will be, where the thematics will take us.

To be honest it feels like another "all the questions will be answered in the final game!" and all the answers will be disappointing à la MGS V. I can't help but having flashbacks of all these MGS V trailers and what a disappointment the final game was (not for everyone of course, just speaking for myself here).

Word.
 
With no context, just comes off as masturbatory nonsense. Hopefully they show something more substantive next time (and some actual gameplay).
 
I'm torn. It looks really cool, but also really over the top weird - and not necessarily in a good way.

It's hard for me to really get excited when I don't even know what the game is, gameplay-wise.

bruh what the fuck are you talking about? MGSV is the best stealth action game to date, and it's open world.
 
This trailaer is so much better than the 2 recent Alien movies. I wish a movie about this game comes real on a few years just imagine you can have Norman in the movie direced by Guillermo del Toro and pproduced by KIjima / Sony studios ...An we do not even know nothing about the game...

Meanwhile at Konami :

 
Quite possibly my most wanted game right now.

I can say that due to the trailers they've shown, knowing that it's a Kojima game and also knowing that he's finally free of MGS. I'm really looking forward to seeing what he can do when he's allowed to make the game that he wants to make and that he's been given the technology to do that with Decima,

As much as I loved the MGS games that was always very much because of the work that Kojima's team did on them. A new Hideo Kojima games is a far more exciting prospect to me than a new Metal Gear Solid game.
 
I recall Kojima saying after the first trailer something along the lines of "The game has already begun" indicating the intentional nature of the trailer and trailers to come. He'll be well aware of the fact that we've not seen game play and discussing its absence. I'm not even sure what this means or if there is a master plan to this 3 trailer approach but I hope he pulls it off coz I love these trailers, but at this stage am pretty skeptical as well.

It may just be progression of development, like how Raiden looked before Revengeance was announced. But good catch. Any in depth videos made yet?
