Dan Rykert, a die hard MGS fan, straight up said it's the least fun he's ever had playing a game. Even Vinny Caravella, who enjoyed the moment to moment gameplay, said it 'turned to ashes in his hands' in the last third.

Yeah listening to it on the way in didn't fill me with enthusiasm but there it does say least sound interesting. The time rain and stamina meter are a big turn off though, easily the worst parts of BOTW.

Tim Rogers is great and really knows his stuff. I watched the video when it came out, it's a good one.

I am more intrigued by how you got the GoT thread title into your message there...

How hasn’t that had any criticism? I don’t mind product placement if it fits in, but that’s so out of place.

That guy is a massive Microsoft fanboy who writes for a Microsoft fan site so I'm not surprised that annoys him.


These people are pathetic :lol:



I think Jez Corden would like to see outrage! In gaming discussion some people have these knee-jerk reactions about a topic without thinking about the logic of what it is they are upset about.

Some time ago industry legend Geoff Keighley was a journalist and presenter for GameTrailers.com, he gave an interview with a gaming website about Comic-Con. At the time PepsiCo was promoting Halo 4 on two of their food products. Keighley was surrounded with Doritos and Mountain Dew marketing material and products. He was asked about Halo 4 and spoke informatively and favourably about it - this was an issue. Sponsorships and advertising are part and parcel of journalism, it pays the bills. However, by Keighley sitting amongst that product it appeared that he had been sponsored - which meant that any praise he gave for Halo 4 in a journalistic capacity may be regarded as impartial. I like Keighley and he's gone on to do great things for the industry, and in some ways since video game journalism advertising has matured. Here the issue was not sponsorship but transparency about sponsorship and separating editorial from such sponsorship.

Journalists not being clear about sponsorships is different from product placements, which has been going on in movies for decades, the James Bond franchise is well known for it. Sometimes these placements are part of the background decoration, sometimes the product is baked-in to be a central part of the movie, as with the Xbox 360 used in Project Almanac. Death Stranding is a piece of art (creative work), but it is also a product designed to generate substantial revenue - there is nothing more immoral about having a product placement in a computer game than in a movie. Sure it is perfectly reasonable to discuss the merits of how well a product placement is delivered, whether it is subtly done or is just heavy-handed promotion, whether it blends in with the game world or spoils the immersion. But these reactionary, almost puritanical, meltdowns I suspect are more to do with the format wars.

The description of the gameplay sounds boring as strawberry float and the controls sound ridiculous.

Yea that was hilarious. I now buy Duracell just in case I get dragged into a nightmare world of my own creation.

Famtisu have given this a perfect score of 40/40.

I think I'd have been more surprised if they hadn't given it a perfect score.

Yeah I think they've given everything Kojima has done a perfect score for quite a while now, even the turd that was MGS4. :lol:
