We aren’t ready, apparently.
Only the legendary Hideo Kojima can show off almost a full 10 minutes of gameplay footage for a game, and we are still clueless as to what the hell you do in the game. It is what it is from the master of the tease, and his buddy is out hyping up the game now as Geoff Keighley is saying that we aren’t ready. We just aren’t ready.
In a lengthy IGN interivew, Keighley said that he’s seen some things we aren’t going to believe. He says that a lot of what Kojima Productions has in store has just been a taste and we’re going to be blown away with the things we’ll be shown as time goes on. It’s so crazy, he doesn’t even understand it apparently.
“But what I will say I think about the game is that what he’s doing with the online aspects of it, I think people aren’t quite fully ready for what he’s sort of doing. And if you remember, even in Opening Night Live, we talked a lot about how people like, you know, everyone can like pee on the mushroom, and it’ll grow bigger. And it’s like, I mean, it’s silly and funny, but you got to take that concept and think about how that applies to everything you do in the game, and this sort of connected world and connecting people. People are like, oh, that’s so silly, crazy Kojima. But think about that, how that applies to everything you’re doing in Death Stranding. Yeah, and what’s going to happen? And again, I think he’s building something that is, it’s not just a single player game is sort of these online components. I think he’ll eventually talk about more of that. But I’m really excited for people to kind of realize what’s in Death Stranding. And again, I don’t even fully understand it. Because there’s so much to it, but you know, he’s operating in such a different level with like, rocking the baby and all this other crazy. Like, we’ll see.”
Keighley has been known to have a pretty close relationship with the developer, so it’s not hard to imagine him playing the hype man for his friend, but even though I like to poke fun at the game’s weird marketing, whatever Hideo Kojima has come up with in Death Stranding will at least be interesting, if nothing else, when it releases November 8th exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
