So.

I have absolutely no idea what to take from this.

The simple truth that Hideo Kojima is the reincarnation of Sigmund Freud is today's lesson, young one. tongue

I wonder if this is a horror game like PT was meant to be?

Norman Reedus' ass is the hero we need and deserve.

I could only think of two things afterwards: Norman Reedus' ass, and Dean from the Iron Giant yelling "ART!!!"

So...is this basically the Quiet Mountain everybody wants?

Also, obligatory "he breathes through his skin" joke.

I am wondering what this is actually going to be. Some kind of horror thing, or...?

To be honest I can't tell from the teaser whatsoever. The first thing that comes to mind is some sort of mystery game where you have to find out where the hell you and that child came from but that's probably just me projecting since the scene was so bizarre and without any context.

It has a lot of horrific, generally fucked-up iconography, at least. I'm assuming a horror-focused game from that trailer, whatever on Earth the mechanics of it might be.

It definitely reads like horror to me. Except for Norman Reedus's ass, which wasn't horrible.

The trailer surely gave a horror feeling, but I guess it's too early to jump to any conclusions.

Uh, it's called "Death Stranding," and the text in the trailer drips. I think horror is a pretty safe bet.

But it's also packed with symbolism, which is something to be expected when Hideo Kojima is finally able to do exactly what he wants for the first time in 20 years.

Like, it's not hard to think that the five tags on the chain around his neck, and the five figures in the sky are Metal Gear Solid 1 through 5, and letting go of the past may be a theme of the game.

Btw, in the end, correct me if I'm mistaken, are the dead whales still connected by the umbilical cord? What could that mean?

In a time where most trailers leave me bored and apathetic, this one made me feel confused and uncomfortable (and maybe just a little bit aroused)

So it's got that going for it. Definetly going to keep this one on my radar.

Even if the teaser has nothing to do with the actual game, the idea of waking up on the ocean floor surounded by dead marine animals is incredibly awesome.

Hm...

The name, nudity, and general sense of tragedy make me wonder if this takes place in some sort of afterlife situation akin to Riverworld, but with less famous historical figures.

[up]Was thinking that too. Looks like it's going to have an environmental/cyberpunk horror theme; it would explain why the sand is oily and black, as if the animals were killed by an oil spill, and the odd cables connecting both Norman Reedus's character and the infant. Basically, it might be his AI's 'conscious' feeling guilt over some transgression.

Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.

Kojima rolled out on a Tron carpet in his forever 21 jeans, iron-on Ludens graphic-T, and a blazer. And presented us with mpreg Norman Reedus on a tar beach. I dunno what I was expecting but I have no complaints either.

Oh really when?
