I'm still hyped to the eyeballs for this weird-arse game. Only a couple of weeks left until release and I can finally find out what Daryl's bottle baby is all about

I'm also extremely hyped for a big old dose of weird kojima-ness

I don’t understand what the majority of reviews are saying about this game they’re like it’s a chore to get through/boring but it’s important

Cracker say what??

I had it pre-ordered until recently, I think I'll wait until it's on sale.

Yes it will be pretentious Kojima self-indulgence with cutscenes that are far too long, and some people will find it utterly unplayable and that will be part of what makes it unmissable. I feel like you have to know what you're getting into though.

I've a feeling the majority of people will hate it at first but then it will become a cult classic in a few years

So thus far

1) Yes, delivering stuff

2) Yes, very long and bizarre cutscenes

3) The delivering parcels is oddly addictive and compelling??

4) The graphics are amazing. I have literally not seen better, ever, some of the landscapes are approaching photorealism... It's been a long time since I've played a game and been gobsmacked by the scenery / cutscenes ... I suspect this is the absolute peak of the PS4 hardware right here.


As I expected I'm loving it so far but its probably not for everyone.

I stopped playing detroit when I spent half an hour cleaning up pizza boxes and getting the washing in.

Hahaha, it's not on par with that... Whilst you are indeed delivering parcels, it's across a post apocalyptic landscape so there's a lot of figuring out how to scale cliffs, etc.

And obviously the plot isn't about parcels... It's just a large part of the game mechanic.

The story has me hooked. Lots of people won't like the hours and hours of cutscenes but I grew up on the MGS series so I love it haha

The cutscenes are long but they're still not in the league of MGS4 . That really did push it a couple of times. Me and my girlfriend (now wife ) were at Uni when I was playing it, and she wrote a University essay once (a rushed one, but still)... While I was watching a cutscene! Over an hour

I've just looked it up actually - apparently it's a sequence of cutscenes in close succession and the total length is 71 minutes

To be fair though, the last 1/3 of MGS4 despite not being much... Game... Is still one of my finest few hours of gaming. The 20 minute long fist fight with Ocelot
