Death Stranding, the weird-ass game from Kojima that had many people scratching their heads a few years ago at E3, has a new trailer and I gotta say... I'm still scratching my head.

Not in a bad way. At least now there's something more concrete. This game looks absolutely stunning and the cast is phenomenal. Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Lea Seydoux, Margaret Qualley, Guillermo de Toro, Troy Baker... I'd watch that movie. Instead, we get to play it.

Kojima tweeted some info about it to further clarify:

People have built "Walls" and become accustomed to living in isolation.

"DEATH STRANDING" is a completely new type of action game, where the player's goal is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. All elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of "Strand", or connection.

As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to "Bridge" these divisions, and in doing so, create new bonds or "Strands" with other players around the globe.

Through your experience playing the game, I hope you'll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others.

Now please enjoy the latest Death Stranding trailer.

So yeah, I'm interested. I'm going to hold my enthusiasm until we get some reviews in I think because I barely know what the gameplay will even be like at this point, but I'm far beyond intrigued.

I was wondering who made this game. And then as I kept watching the trailer I was confused as to whom the lead designer of the game was. When I read all the marketing materials I was also in the dark as they didn't say who the creative visionary of this game was still.

It's too bad whomever made this game doesn't let us know because whomever they are they must like to keep a low profile.

Also this game does seem odd but mostly because the graphics seems super uncanny valley. I'm sure the gameplay is fine, but the cut scenes look off.
