That was really neat, and I'm surprised to see him chatting about how much the strike impacted work, since most stuff about that has been pretty quiet, bit it's good that that got resolved and things are on track.

With this being the earliest part of the game chronologically, I wonder if each death gets marked by handprints on his skin, since it seems like you see one appearing when he's under water. It's all so interesting!

Additionally, I meant to mention how, in addition to the lights that point out the handprints change and configuration looks like a gameplay mechanic, the armbands that the two other people have look to be subtle UI for health meters, since you can see the one change as he goes into the air and starts stabbing himself, and the other guys' starts out red 'cause he's pinned under the truck.

Okay, so, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and try and rationalize what I just saw:

SOMETHING can only be seen in a certain band of light frequency, and if that something spots you, it sucks you in some kindof time warp that explodes, but the only way to survive that warp is if you eat some kind of baby parasite.

But even if you do survive it, it causes a crater-like explosion, and your "time" is sped-up somewhere in the future. So it's like a Time Jump.

....I think!? O.o

i'm not going to bother trying to decipher from bits and pieces of a trailer (and a kojima trailer at that) after a fucking fetus mooning me from inside a vaginal canal and either just gave me a thumbs up or making obscene gestures at me



but i like that they're letting him do something weird and unusual instead of just 'make another military shooter or straight scifi combat game'. he's got the name power to be able to do it and it's nice to see an expansion of what topics aaa games are willing to cover, regardless as to what the end result might turn out like. it might be shit, but at least someone tried something different

Is it even a vaginal canal? Wasn't that from the end of the last trailer where it was just down Norman Reedus' throat?

It's super weird, but at least we got some err, gameplay? Looks like a somewhat silly open-world post-apocalyptic Euro Truck Simulator where the truck has been replaced by Reedus and his magic backpack and powerhands where he takes jobs from anyone, moving anything from bodies to luggage to the wife's shopping. Second part is a stealth game, without the action part from MGS. This all slathered in what looks like mostly storytelling.

I hope there's eating the local wildlife in it. CRAB BATTLE!

So, I went and rewatched the trailers that've been put out for this so far, and I've started to notice a bunch of little details, like the little critters that she eats at the end to stave off the effects of the Time Flow are something that Sam pukes up when he arrives outside of the crater at the end of the TGA trailer. Also, the crater itself was mentioned in this trailer, and we get a better understanding as to why the old dude under the vehicle is aging rapidly, and likely also why the corpse is reacting strangely when it's being pulled under. On top of that, the baby closes its left eye when it's with Sam & when it's with Guillermo Del Toro, suggesting it's the same kid both times. The doll with the scar on its stomach also has the same eye closed. And last, but maybe not least, both Sam and the new cool-jacket-lady shed a tear in a similar way in different trailers.

I "think" I'm starting to get the meaning behind the title of the game.

"Death Stranding" in that, even if he wanted to die, he's the only one of few who end up surviving these explosions and gets sent in to the future.
