PS4 - Death Stranding 
I upgraded my PS4 to a Pro model over the weekend to cash in on the current deals and in doing so I've nabbed one of the Death Stranding bundles from Game that comes with hand-print version of the console, a neat-looking orange crystal DS4 and a copy of the game itself.

The thing is, that game looks bloody weird, and I'm not convinced I'll get far with it at all, so I've not even opened it yet as I'll probably move it on. Has anyone here given it a try yet before I do though? I'm not even sure what you're meant to do in it except (possibly?) walk around, deliver parcels, climb ladders, and avoid ghosts and Hannibal Lecter!

For context, I love Kojima's work usually, even when it does get a bit psychadelic and surreal!


Also currently playing:

    Disco Elysium - one of the best and most unique games I've played in years.

    I just saw Outer Wild and I liked the game so much I'm kind of wishing it existed for the Nintendo Switch.

  • I played Death Stranding for a few hours but it was just too dull for my liking.

    Playing Jedi Fallen Order at the moment which I love.

    That's what I'm wary of!

  • Not really played for a few years, I have recently had a brief dalliance with the new COD Modern Warfare campaign, I'm about 2/3rds way through and will finish it over Xmas hols. Not sure what else to play after that. Getting TV time in our house is a premium.My favourite games to play have always been the GTA games.

    I want GTA 6 and am interested in the new XBOX Series X which I'm guessing it will be released to play on. The big problem for me is the size & shape of the new XBOX Series X, it won't fit in my TV stand!

    Currently playing:

    Jedi Fallen order - Xbox One X
    Phoenix Point - PC
    Battletech 5 - PC

    Really enjoying each of them, but especially addicted to Phoenix Point. It's the spiritual successor to the original X-Com and is VERY addictive!

    Still playing Elite Dangerous

    Recently got the new COD, and I'm liking that a great deal.
    Humans will swim in the sea even though there are many corpses in it.  They will not swim in a pool with a corpse in it. 
    Therefore all humans have a water / corpse ratio that is acceptable to them.

  • Outer worlds, RDR2,  green hell, all ok pc, RDR2 probably one of the best games I have ever played, especially with pc graphics and first person

  • All other games have fallen by the wayside for me since I got into Overwatch.

    It is by far the most "team" oriented game I've ever played. Which is why it is so bloody good when your team works out and simultaneously unbearably frustrating when it doesn't.

    To my eternal shame I'm also loving watching the Overwatchleague. I'm probably enjoying it more than I have enjoyed meat sports in recent years

    How does Pheonix Point compare to the xcom remakes?

    I play sporadically and only on console these days

    Last game I dived into was Ghost Recon Breakpoint which I quite enjoyed (languishing half way through campaign as usual - I run out of steam usually and don't finish them lol )

    Might give the latest "free" PS Plus game a go - Titanfall 2

    I'm mainly playing Destiny although I'm currently cleaning up trophies on COD MW for the platinum.

    I want to get Death Stranding but I'm waiting for it go sub £30 - it's currently £33.99 at Argos though.

    The 2 people.i know who have played Death Stranding said

    1. It's basically a walking simulator
    2. I'm not sure if call it a game as such 

    If you play it let us know what you think

    Woah, didn't realise it had dropped already! In that case I'll probably give my copy a try.

    It's funny you say that cos I now struggle to enjoy games that aren't Dark Souls/Bloodborne/Sekiro .. I give up on pretty much everything else now and go back to play the Souls games yet again.
