    Kojima is a 53 year old man and he still thinks the moon landing was real

    del toro

    so far this feels very MGS4

    Oh cool, this thread. I beat MGS3 last year and liked it well enough that I bought the whole Legacy Collection. I've only just gotten around to it and started with the original Metal Gear yesterday.

    This is actually a pretty decent amount of fun, though a little tricky. I'm also surprised that cardboard boxes have been around since frickin' 1987.

    So you're saying we'll get to take photographs of Del Toro as he poses in a skin-tight bodysuit?

    That trailer is Kojima as fuck

    WELL, at least PS4s will be relatively cheap by the time this comes out, I guess

    It's a Kojima-ass Kojima trailer and I loved every bit of it.

    That is the best looking 53 year old I've seen in my entire life. He could pass for late 20's!

    The rumor is that "Decima", the logo at the end in the credits that has nothing whatsoever on google about it, is the name of the game engine.

    Its Sucker Punch's Infamous Second Son engine modified by Kojima.

    there is a part of me that's a little disappointed he's going back to the "tom clancy military thriller meets bullshit anime nonsense" well, just because getting separated from MGS would've been a good opportunity to stretch out and try something different

    but on the other hand I love MGS so I'm totally fine with him doing something that seems like it's borrowing heavily from it aesthetically

    Death Stranding looks like the intro to Phantom Pain stretched into a full game starring Norman Reedus, and I am 10,000% down for that.

    I dunno about military thriller. I was getting a hot nightmare vibe. The tanks and soldiers are... wrong. Figure they put em in there cause it's they're easily recognisable as being off.

    So what up with them babies.
    looks like cloning tech? You gonna die, upload yourself into a new baby? But Norman's reaction to the baba in the first trailer didn't seen like it was a utility thing...

    Oh brilliant

    That tank had more meat on it than is typical for tanks

    a better question, I think, is what's up with all the anachronistic stuff

    those skeleton soldiers, airplanes, and the tank? all ww2 stuff, to the point that people have identified what everything is
    (iirc the tank is one of the more obscure ones, because of course it is)

    mads mikkelsen, meanwhile, has modern night vision gear and all kinds of more modern attachments to his gun and stuff

    and del toro, of course, has the crazy high-tech artificial womb thingy

    and in the previous trailer, the equations on reedus' dogtags were iirc about the schwarzschild radius

    is this a time travel game?

  • Mr. GMr. G Registered User regular
    I'm so happy Mads Mikkelsen is in a Kojima thing

    It's TOO perfect

    It's like Kurt Russell playing Chris Pratt's dad in the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie, I don't want to say too much because I feel like I'll scare it away and never get it back

    Guillermo and Norman both have the handcuffs. So they're together somehow.

    Also Guillermo's pin says "BRIDGES - United Cities of America".

    Wild horrific speculation:
    This is some sort of dimensional travel going on: "Death World" where Mikkelson and his skelebros live with the floating dudes, and "Life World" where Del Toro and Reedus are from. You use your...baby? to travel between them (unborn baby being between life and death). In the first trailer, Reedus's baby comes loose somehow and he's unable to use it to travel back to Life World, so he's trapped in Death World. The C-section scar on Reedus may refer to his baby being forcibly removed by a third party?

    Death World might be trying to invade Life World, which is why Del Toro seems like why he's being hunted for his interdimensional travel baby.

    The title Death Stranding may reference this: a sea creature goes to the land (travels between two "worlds") so it can die - this could be reversed where Death World wants to come to Life World to live?

    I hope this is what (At least tangentially, i dunno if he's in the game beyond the trailer) free's Guillermo Del Toro from his nightmarish video game curse

    It made me sad every time it happened

  • Mr. GMr. G Registered User regular
    I just want Kojima and Mads Mikkelsen to be best friends, you guys

    I want them to get together and say weird philosophical half-sentences that you hear and go "I understood all of those words but I don't think they quite make an actual thought" like they do all the time
