immediately after finishing i opened this tweet https://x.com/HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN/status/200153479753371648 and raised both my hands up in the air and started chanting "absolute Gaming"

skip all the cutscenes and i think this might be a masterpiece, honestly.

One of the most batshit games I've ever played, but the story ended up making complete sense by the end, and turned out to be surprisingly awesome.

The delivery gameplay is actually quite fun, and relaxing. You can use your carrier as a fucking hoverboard!

But fuck any combat-heavy encounters, genuinely some of the worst I've experienced in a game in a very long time.

It's not perfect, but this game is definitely a work of art. From the character designs, to the vastly original setting, this game is something that should absolutely be experienced.

But if the beginning turns you away, from how much of a litmus test it is at driving away the people that can't handle how unbelievably weird and stupid it is, then you're likely not going to enjoy the rest of what the game offers.

Can't wait for the sequel to HOPEFULLY improve the combat.

Toddynho gameplay não sabe de nada

Death Stranding is the best multiplayer game going because it does away with the worst part about multiplayer games; other players.

I think the thing that caught me most by surprise in revisiting this game 4 years after it's release was the confusion on just how divisive it was when it came out. At the time I remember phrases like "walking sim" getting thrown around and not to be rude but you'd have to be purposefully oblivious to think Death Stranding has only walking to offer.

Sure, the core of the game is walking from point A to point B. But the world is designed in such a way to make such a simple task incredibly engaging. Traversing this uniquely post-apocalyptic America is never dull, and you're always kept on your toes. As an experiment I TRIED to check my phone during seeming quiet moments and ended up eating shit and ruining somebody's precious cargo (Apologies to the poor denizen of Port Knot City whose stuff I ruined, if it's any consolation the poor Porters Grade I received dampened my spirits).

DS does an incredible job of creating a new kind of game, that of the humble delivery man, and kept adding new ways to keep it engaging during my 60+ hour run time. Either through new tools, vehicles, or environmental hazards. It's online system also works wonders in evolving the world, and making you feel connected with others. The amount of times I mashed the like button because some kind soul had placed a vehicle, Timestop shelter, or some other handy resource in the middle of nowhere, seemingly out of the goodness of their heart, is too many to count. I have never had such an engaging and heartwarming experience with a community I can't directly communicate with.

It's story is equally as entapturing, it's the standard Kojima affair, and you can feel his style oozing through almost every facet of prose, it had my smiling, laughing, crying, and just all around hooked.

I truly am thrilled this game is receiving a sequel, there are so many moments I could gush about, it has some amazing gameplay segments that rely on the players cunning and knowledge to resolve, it treats the player with respect and patience, and asks only you do the same with it.

If your were turned away from Death Stranding because of some of the negative press it received on launch, go back and give it a go, it's a title that demands your attention.

I'll be waiting for you on the Beach.
