Kojima Returns With Astounding “Death Stranding” Trailer

“I’m back” was all he said as Kojima appeared on stage for Sony’s E3 conference last night. After lapping up deafening applause the trailer for Kojima’s secretive (as is always his style) new project entitled Death Stranding.

For the 0.5 of you who haven’t seen the trailer, the play by play is as follows. A bare bones drum click sounds under an opening quote. We then see a beach covered in dead crabs. If you watched the raw feed from the e3 event you can hear someone scream “it’s a giant fucking crab!” (Fan service much?)

The camera then pans to what is revealed seconds later to be Norman Reedus’ ass and dirt covered body. There is a baby chained to him with a handcuff. Norman’s character, not yet named, sobs and holds the baby which we are not sure is alive or not. In the blink of a virtual frame, the baby vanishes leaving nothing but black sludge in his hands, oily foot prints walk away from him, infant size. 


We see in the trailer’s final moments a group of five figures in the sky ascending as the very same black bile eeks on to the screen spelling Death Stranding. 

No release date. No plot line revealed. So Kojima. The trailer is impeccable; describing it as chilling would be a banal understatement. Doesn’t mean it will be a good game though. We will have to see but I’m confident it will be a new mind bending, industry shattering IP. 

What are your thoughts on Kojima’s comeback after the Phantom Pain in the ass?

Andrew House Announces PS4 Neo, Surprising No One

The news has broke. There will be a new PS4. Wait I thought the PS4 just came out and it was hyped as the consoles answer to the glorious master race power of PC? You ask yourself. Oh you are wrong. You are so wrong. 

Andrew House, the current CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, has confirmed the rumors that have already been buzzing about a new augmented PS4 a “premium” PS4 if you will. “It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4” House stated in the initial reveal. 

That’s a load of BS and we all know this. All I hear is, “the peasants can have their toy for a few more years but it will be purposely, and by forces of the market, made to be obsolete cause 4K”. 

Mark Cerny may have put eight core processors in his new love child but it was still sweating at 1080p. Then a year later 4K joins the market and egg is on many faces, scrambled not fried. They clearly are now having to play catch up and the PR word salad is spewing out with MBA guided cadence. 

What are your thoughts on the new PS4 Neo? Why are they not showing it at E3? Is XBOX next?
