Almost done with my chores for the day. The wife wanted to play Ring Fit for a bit and then shower so I'm watching the baby while she's finishing up with that. Then I'll be home free to play DS all night long.

I'm having so much fun with this game. Nice to have a place to go and talk to it with people.

Look at us... just a bunch of good-lookin' dudes playin' games together.

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 :)

Some critics say that the second half really picks us and adds the cream to the cake , are you seeing that?

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

His question for you John, I think



Noticed a typo in game. :O

Played a few more hours. Mission 5 was pretty brutal. Not sure if the timing of when it rains is random or if it's incorporated into the missions themselves, but I got really unlucky and was rained on the entire time. Barely managed to finish. I'm playing on hard mode, but I'm not sure how that affects things quite yet.

What was the typo?

In the "Interviews" menu, the third one on my list, "Timefall". Last few lines say:

Perhaps, in time, the Death Stranding will come to be seem as the phenomenon...

instead of "come to be seen as the phenomenon".

And hot damn, I just got three trophies all during the same mission results screen. I use the trophy acquirement percentage as a means of gauging how far behind I am xD

All three were roughly 30% or so, IIRC.



Not story related (Mission 7+)

Spoiler!

You can recycle your piss bombs, and they seem to be worth 2 chiralium. xD



I'm enjoying it so far, although I understand why reviews are on extreme ends of the spectrum.



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.



I am really liking the game so far!
