Episode 58 – Jig News

Sorry for the delay! Life comes at you fast, and in TMan’s case it was so fast he had trouble finding time to edit the podcast! In addition, somehow during this particular episode TMan’s mic managed to pick up a radio station so editing was a little rougher. I think the background audio was scrubbed well enough that it should have come out okay, but if there’s something off about this week’s episode, that’s why! Apologies for making you wait, but let’s get on with this episode’s Make Me A Gamer entertainment!

Review: Death Stranding

In 2016 at E3, Hideo Kojima revealed the new game he was working on in fantastic fashion: a trailer of a naked Norman Reedus waking up next to a crying baby, the baby disappearing and covering Reedus in black tar, and Reedus standing up and looking out over an ocean at five floating figures. Death Stranding.

For the next three years until the game’s release this past November, “what is Death Stranding about?” has been a question continuously asked by enthusiasts in the gaming community. Later trailers did not do much to help clarify: from Mads Mikkelsen commanding troops in a sewer to Reedus witnessing an invisible monster carry another person away, the point and plot of the game was shrouded in complete mystery.

Well after 52 hours I’ve completed the story of Death Stranding so I can tell you what the game is about. I can also tell you, surprisingly, that a lot of the weirdness that was shown off in trailers actually makes sense in the context of the game. Kojima, if nothing else, managed something very few others are capable of: drumming up interest and intrigue for a brand new IP without revealing any of the plot, really.

But did he make a good game?

That’s what I’m about to review. I’m going to spoil some things about the game (although nothing major related to the story), so if you want to go into the game completely blind it’s probably a good idea to skip this. But for the rest of you, read on.
