I don't know how the fuck anyone can be underwhelmed by anything about Death Stranding. That thing is captivating, by far the most unique and exciting thing happening in video games right now. I loved the fact that it wasn't some shooting or stabbing or driving gameplay like almost every other fucking game at E3, it was just a delivery man making his deliveries, as imagined by Kojima. And I especially disagree with the notion that the aesthetic 'looks lame'. Everything in that world looks so striking and instantly memorable to me, there is nothing else like it and I have a feeling I'm going to love the hell out of this no matter what shape the final gameplay takes. But I bet a lot of game reviewers and whatnot will give it bad scores, because they would love to be the one to frame this game as a massive disaster and tear down the 'Kojima myth' or whatever.

Agreed. People have always said Kojima is some kind of genius with Metal Gear, which I've always been indifferent on, but with this I actually see it. This game makes me feel something.

Could all be dispelled at release but in terms of build, it's amazing to me.

How does Dan even have a job in this industry when he knows next to nothing about current, relevant games? If I didn't know any better I'd think he was some random pulled off the street who only has a cursory knowledge of games through a nephew or something.

I am being harsh but it is mind boggling to me.

I have zero tolerance for Dan's ignorance. It's one of the many the reasons why I don't watch GiantBomb anymore. I envy the people that find it endearing because I just can't help but wonder how the hell this man is allowed out in the world.

I used to have nearly all of the 2006 On The Spot's on my PS3 years back, then that dwindled down to a few before I knew I'd never get them back. I have no idea how much you have but this is almost the best thing ever.

There are a handful of episodes that still work on Gamespot, you just can't download them without ripping them completely and I don't even know if that works.
