Also when this gets onyo PC it will be the best looking game ever created. Hands down, assuming they make use of the hardware. It's already tethering that line on Pro as is and excelling in a few areas.

What is the punishment for death? Mission #9 is next for me (although I finished #10 already), but so far I haven't died or lost cargo. I was very curious about what would happen. I'm assuming there's no fast travel (at this point in the game at least; would rather not know if it's going to be available later) so you'd have to make your way back to the start of the mission maybe? Or does it put you back in capital knot? Ew if that's the case.

Btw, Fast travel was unlocked in chapter 2 but packages don't come with you or tools. I suppose that would defeat the purpose of the game ;). 

OT: I'm 3 chapters down and absolutely everything I've seen post release, apart from one or two scenes have now been shown. It's all new and there are 14 chapters. They really kept a tight lid on this shit. Oh and only 2.5% of people have made it to chapter 3. 22% at chapter two. I hope that is just cause the game is only a few days old and doesn't represent a drop off that harsh. 



 

Yikes, not sure if I wanted to have read that. Not sure what Chapter I'm in though. I thought I was in Chapter 2 already, but probably not. I think I've completed 11 or 12 main missions now.

I just turned off the game for the night, so I don't know about the animation skipping. I haven't used the feature much myself but maybe at some point I will get tired of watching the same thing. Maybe check the options. I went through the list of options before starting my playthrough but I don't remember if there was anything about animation skipping.

I stayed up way too late and got way too little sleep the past couple nights. Before exiting the game I decided to finish up everything I had to do in my private quarters so that when I play tomorrow night I will be ready for another mission. But after doing so, one of the BB cutscenes played and I nodded off for a few seconds while it was playing.

I've been very adamant on paying very good attention to cutscenes and dialogue, so I quickly reset the game and loaded my file. It put me right outside the private quarters, so I had to go back in and re-do everything again to trigger the BB scene (this is the one and only time I've used animation skip).

While doing this I forced myself to stand up so that I wouldn't microsleep, and it helped, but twice during this time I started to nod off while standing up and woke up in the process of tipping over and getting my balance back (DS IRL).

I did manage to finish what I was doing and watch the cutscene fully this time though, and then I turned everything off. Going downstairs to get some ice and water woke me up enough to spend a bit of time on VGC.

DS is really good so far.

Hah, gotta clean up before you log off and make sure all the menus are clean and tidy. ;). Sorry if I unveiled something in that last comment, I didn't think it was spoilery. 

OT: Spoilers for chapter 3...ish, or maybe late chapter 2 also.

Spoiler!

I spent 3 hours finishing a road last night, a road I most likely won't use again as I've moved onto another area but I had to have it all clean and tidy for my bots running my errands and I actually had a majour ammount of fun going to the various BT locations, farming for chirililium, back to the outpost, wedge all I can out of it material wise into the road nodes, then raiding MULE camps, tying them all up, taking their truck and loading everything they have on truck runs to a post box at their perimeter, which is quite a lot actually. I know if I progress the story the online will kivk in and more infrastructure will be added, lessening my job but I did it anyway. 

I don't know what the fuck this game is, still, but I love it. 

 



 

11h in! Still loving the game!

You mentioned aliasing. Get the Pro! :P

Best looking game ever? Well, to me, Metro: Exodus would disagree, but it's a contender to be sure and the PC version isn't even out yet. Playing this in 1440p/144Hz with G-SYNC will be an experience like very few! 

And yes, the game is incredible. One of the best I've played all year!



                                                                                                                                            

OK,that's it !
I'm putting Monster Hunter World down for a while and gonna buy this!



I spent all night playing more Death Stranding, so I'm now some 13 hours in (and very, very tired, lol). Wow. I don't want to let the cat out of the bag (yes), but let me just say that there have been some BIG developments in the game's story since I posted six hours in yesterday! I mentioned that I was really liking the game yesterday, but I'm qualitatively more into DS now than I was then. Just saying.

I'm on Pro on a 4k TV and there is aliasing, it's not bad and only in certain areas but it was anough to tarnish the girst few hours. I said it will be the best looking game when it gets on PC along with Detroit. 

And I've played Metro Exodus on a 4k monitor with ray trancing. It looks fnatastic but you still can't get away fron the jankyness of the art underneath it. 

Have you played Shadow of the Collosus on PRO at 4k with HDR? I think that's something thaf out right beats Exodus environments wise, even the desert area with RTX on.  

Death Stranding is lacking sonething to make it truly great though, I can't put my finger on it but when it shines it really does shine. Them environemnts. 

Edit: Excuse me. 1440p monitor.

It's a gamble worth taking. It definitely has that core Monster hunter grind but in a really refreshing way. May your deliveies be intact.
