The Death Stranding Briefing Trailer is OUT. This one explains it all... or does it?

I’ve still yet to see anything from this game that interests me outside of Kojima’s name 😞

Hoping the gameplay tonight moves the needle a bit

this is pretty cornball dialogue. not really moving me, but who knows maybe it's better in context.

the handcuffs sam... they're not shackles! they're a symbol of our bond... we need to bring people together!

*plinky emotional piano music starts playing*
this is kojima we're talkin bout here, homo monsters and tim apples, here we come!

So wait that lady wasn't actually there? Those were her "thoughts" talking? I'm confused.

Somebody should make a gofundme to raise $75 to get David Hayter to do a Cameo clip where he says "Samantha America Strand, our new President" in Snake's voice.

I’m wondering if Die Hardman wears the mask because his face is disintegrated. Like maybe part of his flesh is on the other side.

Well that actually was coherent and I understood what I watched so thanks Kojima it took long enough. I look forward to jumping in when this hits PC.

Make America Strand again...

She's a prisoner on the other coast. Just pretend she's a hologram. Or they all are. Shrug emoji.
No. A holo teleconference, she's being held captive in another city.
See this was my first thought. But she seems to have full access to hologram communications and can freely walk around and shit? So much for being "held" prisoner...

I mean shit, she is dressed all nice and she looks fed. Her hair is did. Her makeup is on fleek. Where do I sign up???

She explains why that is in the trailer. She is being held in the city, she can't leave. But she is not restrained or anything like that within the city itself.

Bruh it just lays out the whole core plot of why you’re walking across the country.
lol exactly. it even semi confirmed some gameplay elements. there might be cities or at the very least outposts.

the last three cutscenes have done a great job explaining the babies, the ghosts and the actual plot of the game. not sure why people still pretend to be confused.

She's a "guest" of the Homo Demens

Probably the part where the script hits us with a shit ton of clunky technobabble and exposition.

i didnt view at least one of those trailers
i like kojima but you can't blame me for not understanding
when you got to view all the cutscenes/trailers to understand stuff, its a bad look, certainly for the general gaming public who may not have the patience that i did

You don't have to watch all of them, this one explains the objective plainly.

This was a very nice explanation of what's going on. Yeah Kojima, I'm watching the gameplay session anyway, I want to watch it.
