I’m probably in the minority on this...but this trailer didn’t really excite me. It got me interested but it’s already at a point where I’ll have to wait and see from the reviews. I have not played a lot of Kojima’s games but I have some understanding of his game philosophies.

The graphics are pretty astounding. Pretty cool seeing the actors look as they are in real life.

The story is more confusing than ever. Will I eventually understand when I play the game? I’m not sure...I guess that doesn’t matter in some sense, but I don’t really see where this is going.

The gameplay looks..mediocre. Part of a video game is being able to play the game. The combat looks like Uncharted..and not in a good way. It looks kinda clunky and stiff. Maybe it’ll change..I don’t know.

As for it being open world...I hope it’ll intrigue me as Breath of the Wild did. Whenever I explored Hyrule, I always look forward to the unknown and part of that was the gameplay mechanics that allowed me to be creative and discover nukes and crannies that surprise me. I worry that DS’s gameplay might not be as effective if it’s going the open world route.

If you’re all excited, cool beans. I’m keeping an eye on this game. Just not sure what to really think of it at this time.

I'd say that we haven't seen enough gameplay to confidently judge it.

Yeah I have those concerns too.. 3 years is usually taken by sequels, considering they already have engine in place from the first game. 5 years is minimum for a New IP as initial years are spent on building engine for their specific task. So I will give benefit of doubt to KP as they were handed over a robust decima engine which they retooled for DS. Also its Kojima that guy wont release a game untill and unless his vision for the game is met.. he is the last guy to rush development to meet dead lines. 

I guess Kojima's been working on this since MGS5 days. He had the vision, the story and idea. He just had to find the team and the engine to do it.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. Nothing else would make sense for how quickly he got this all done. I think this has been Kojima’s side project when not on the clock at the Konami building for years.

Idk how Japan works, but in America, Konami would likely try to go after Kojima to see if he ever worked on DS while on—or with—Konami property.

Media black out time. A couple days ago i was complaining of loosing interest cause we didn't know enough, then this dropped and now I know way to much. Yong yea man, that dude is way to good at picking things apart, should have been an analyst.

I thought Yong did pretty decent job with that analysis video. Some weird thoughts on very basic stuff though, and a bit too much minutia, but I watched the whole thing and gave it a thumbs up, so I did like it.

Before you go blackout ( which I'm going to try and do as well ) you might be interested on watching his much shorter look at the Japanese trailer.

He also looks back at the 2017 and 2018 trailers.

Thanks but it was the 17 minute video on the Japanese trailer with the boss that I watched,  I watched like 10 minutes of the long video and realized there is too great a chance his theories are correct and I wanna be surprised. Just really glad to see their is third person shooting in the game at some point, that's all I need to know.

Oook, I've seen the new trailer of Death Stranding, obviously I didn't understand almost nothing but it seems "pretty" and "different" like game. I'm happy that the game isn't totally stealth... I'm not very good with those games and actually really don't like them. Anyway, the plot intrigued me and there is a chance I will buy it on day one.

@AbbathTheGrim There's some info of the online aspect here:

Oh, there was a scene in the trailer, a gameplay scene, where you see the character stumble into a transparent yellow box hanging in the air:

https://youtu.be/piIgkJWDuQg?t=161

Could that yellow light going across the field be the person playing "scanning" for stuff other gamers have left behind and perhaps that yellow box is something the player found or is leaving behind for someone?

I read the info on the online component you posted and it sounds cool, but a part of me wishes that all that online stuff is optional and that we will be able to play the game offline. This trailer has me so hyped that I am planning on replaying the MGS games after I finish DMC5 and the Resident Evil games and the idea of replaying those games makes me reflect on the importance of games not being tied to an online component that may have an expiration date, an expiration date that may prevent us from revisiting those games again or future gamers from experiencing these games in the future.

Also the exploration side to the gameplay, I wonder if it will be something in-depth like playing Ico, solving puzzles to be able to move forward, puzzles that may get some players stuck, or if traverse will be pretty straight forward where you just have to spawn a tool you know you need to use to make a way forward in easy and obvious to solve circumstances.

Looks like Sam is leaving that box there in the trailer, so that could be one of those things that other players online will be able to interact with. The fact that the box is transparent makes me think it might be a visual representation of it being connected to another world, which made me realize that whoever may pick up that package or whatever will be in another world. So the people you connect with won't be in Sam's world? And that could imply that they're all from different worlds.
I wonder if in the game's story, there are many different worlds. Potentially one for each person. Or if there's just one other world, or a limited/specific number of other worlds.

Yeah I'm not sure how age would affect this game's online component. I suppose Kojima could have some A.I. based characters interact with you if it's played offline. But given what he has said about the game and how I sort of imagine this will impact the game, I'm not sure it would have the same effect if those people aren't real.

How the exploration works will be interesting to see. Maybe you won't have all the tools available at the start. But once you have the ladder you can go back to that one place you saw before that you couldn't reach.

One interesting thing I read is that there's no Game Over in this game if you die. I think he said that you end up in some place, and have to try to make it back. That could be interesting or tedious.

I honestly think its just an enemy scanning device since cargo is so important and naturally what they are killing you to steal. The yellow box is a visual indicator for the player to know that they enemy 'knows' that location for that cargo you were carrying. 

just my guess



which version do you want ?@all
deluxe? standard? or special ?

I'll be going for the special edition. It's nice looking package. The deluxe edition is too big, and too expensive.
