Maybe when showing spoilers we should include the earliest chapter that people playing can safely read the message.

So far the story has been really fascinating and the game is feeling like a 90+, but obviously three hours is not enough time to tell yet in this massive game. So far so good. And I'm still playing :P



I'm quite interested in the game, and I'm just waiting for some users comments to confirm if I'll pay full price or if I'll wait a little.

There's 3 things I need to know:

*potential spoilers*


How much emphasis on horror is there?
Are the cthulu elements a major part of the game?
Is the alt dimension with the undead soilders etc just a minor part of the game?

Now, no spoilers please lol

Put of the 6 hours I've played so far, A lot. The essence of the gameplay when it heightens is horror and tension based. I'd say one part Horror, to one part drama to one part Fed-ex to one part 'wow, look at this lump of moss, it's so pretty'. 

The chtulu elements seem to be, at least it's the basis for the entire worlds state and the foundation of the story. And yes, they appear massively in the first hour, rihht from the first minutes to my 6 hours in. 

After 6 hours of game time I can't tell yet with the soldier thing yet. I'd put a healthy bet a bigger. Knowing what I know about one of the characters pre release I'd assume that bet with no hesitation but if it'a optional or integrated I can't tell. 

thanks for the reply :)



Got about 5 hours of sleep. I set an alarm to get up early and get back at it. A lot of this is very obscure still, three missions in, but I'm more compelled to keep playing because of this.

Good job so far Kojima.

The game is amazing, Don (from the perspective of being 3 hours in at least). Most interested in a narrative I've been in awhile now.

Edit: Did the reviews make you re-think your purchase? If so, go with your original gut feeling, because that was blown way out of proportion. The gameplay does not seem boring at all.



I think DS invaded my PS4 and somehow changed my profile icon to that of a death stranding icon. Does this happen to everyone who plays the game?

Nope, it is more that I like Kojima games but not all games. So I just wanted to give it a day or two after launch to be able to see gamers impressions as well.

It haopened to me too but only because I clicked on it when downloading the main game, there is a new auto update feature. 

Oh, okay, so it was the additional files that I clicked on after buying and downloading the game, then. Makes sense; I was in the locker room and noticed when inspecting BB that there was a figuring dangling, and it was the same as my icon. For a small second I was like, "Wait a minute! Did Kojima make 3D models of all the PSN profile pictures so that every player can see a dangling figurine of their pic?" Wouldn't put it past him; so many unusual (in a good way) things about his games.

I'm still not very far given my amount of playtime, but so far I just finished Mission 4.

Very impressed so far and super immersed in this game. I'm even playing with headphones, which is something I never do.



I love Norman Reedus' performance. He is so good. The subtle stuff adds so much more.

Masterpiece.
