Question: has anyone played on various difficulties to spot any differences between them in regards to traversal and/or combat? Or is the very act of turning 45 degrees causing a balance shift a universal rule among all of them?

I think once you equip a power skeleton, your center-of-gravity is higher, since you give up the 2 slots near his legs.  The physics engine in this game is excellent.

During combat with mules, I prefer to unload all my cargo into private lockers beforehand.  This way, I can be stealthy, not get pinged, and have a higher chance of success on the first attempt.  😊

[edit: as an official homo ludens, I have gained the new ability to see real world terrain colored in blue, yellow, and red markers in real life. 🤪😂🤣]

It's kinda funny seeing that in the IGN's GOTY user poll Death Stranding is winning and the comments section is full of people liking and defending the game, after all the shit IGN threw at the game at launch. The backfiring is real....

Death Stranding is going to be by far, the most memorable game from 2019. Yes, Resident Evil 2, Sekiro, Devil May Cry, Luigi's Mansion 3, Outer Worlds, Jedi Fallen Order, Fire Emblem, ... are mechanically and by any metric good games, but very uninspired. There's nothing that they do really wrong, but there's nothing groundbreaking about any of them, gameplay or storywise either.

Those games will have sequels that will use the same formula, only upgraded, and it will make obsolete the previous ones, while with Death Stranding, you have an unique and original experience that will be really difficult to replicate again. Good that the story and the gameplay are very good too.

After finishing the game again (i do this with games i like a lot) and doing most of the side content which expands the context of the story and characters, i understood way better the story this time, liking it much more. I even forgive the game for having some weird/cringy lines now and then noticing is just Kojima having fun, but everything else in the story is amazing and it must be apreciated that there are still creators with this level of creativy and imagination in this industry. I apreciated even more the gameplay and how the game gives you an agency over gameplay where you can play so different and in so many ways. It's just a very well done videogame.

People will keep talking about this game in 1, 5 and 10 years... because Death Stranding is simply an unforgettable masterpiece.

Transcending, cathartic, new benchmarks.

LOL, IGN just removed the GOTY user poll becuase Death Stranding was winning and then asked and mocked users to stop voting for the game.....

I can't believe what i'm seeing.... good lord. After many comments from myself saying gaming journalism was at their worst in recent years..., if this is not proof about that, i don't know what else can be,ugghh....... Everything for the clicks.



IGN lost all the bit of respect I had for them many years ago. They have far too many flawed reviews. Death Stranding is another example of a game that they didn't understand at all.



My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?


Aiiiins... So in the end, the reason why the IGN poll disappear today was because the poll ended and they were going to show the results later today. So instead of announcing the poll was over and that mod was trolling or just wrong, they kept quiet all day and made me and some others look like morons that went angry about nothing.

Smmph. I guess i owe IGN an apology in this regard although they could've done things way better instead of this mess. At least Death Stranding won the People's Choice Award ....that's something.



...

I regret nothing!
