    I've never been so pumped over something I've had no clue about.

    Kojima is an arrogant ass, but he's the Salvador Dali of our generation.

    [edit] Ha, I forgot I called him an arrogant ass three posts up.

    He really is, though.

    I love him, though.

    Kojima mentioned that the "Stranding" in the title referred to what whales do on the beach. No hint that whales would be in the game, but merely commenting on that behaviour they exhibit which we still don't have a valid scientific reason for (essentially suicide, either individually or in groups).

    The new logo for Kojima's company appeared to be a mask/helmet of sorts. Then screenshots emerged of Normal "Drrl" Reedus sporting a similar looking getup, and the one that appears to be in this little short.

    With all that in mind, I agree - I think it is just the logo/intro, but I think there are also hints to themes in the game.

    when Kojima makes games everything is connected, some would say by strands.

    And we have a November 2019 release.



    This should be interesting for me given we have our first baby due in September so my ability to play this is going to be highly debatable.

    I could not be more ready for this, but it appears that I have but months to do so. Bring it.

    Wow! Pity I don't have a PS4.

    I hope Konami are watching.

    never heard anyone use apocalyptica on a trailer before but was more fitting than any else could have been.

    looks like a wild ride to go on, might be the go to after Borderlands 3

    Hmm, why are they modeling actors for games these days? Surely adds unnecessary cost.

    It's cool in a way, but I'd rather the budget put towards the development of the game, story etc.
