What is Death Stranding?
From legendary game creator Hideo Kojima comes an all-new, genre-defying open world action adventure for PS4, starring Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux and Lindsay Wagner.

In the near future, mysterious explosions have rocked the globe, setting off a series of supernatural events known as the Death Stranding. With otherworldly creatures plaguing the landscape, and mass extinction imminent, it’s up to Sam Porter Bridges to travel across the ravaged wasteland and save humanity from impending annihilation.

Where do I find the 2 for 30 deal?
Great game even if a little slow at the start! Great price too
Me 5 hours in - Oh so it's just euro truck simulator but with a dumb plot? Brilliant
Me 50 hours in - Nevermind that was actually a really good game
Played and finished it after TLOU2
Great game, really enjoyed it.

Did you enjoy TLOU2? How do they compare?

Loved TLOU2. Game of the year for sure and potentially top 5 games of the generation. Naughty Dog’s production values are just so far ahead of everyone else. The audio design is also phenomenal, you have to play it with one of the 3D audio PS headsets to truly appreciate it.

You can’t really compare this to TLOU2. Two very different games.

I think the pacing of this game puts a lot of people off. The first 10 hours are a slog, they are a very slow burn. But it fits with the game narratively but it’s a big ask for some people to play a game for 10 hours before it picks up.

It’s a 55 hour + game too.
Gonna get cheaper clearly. HOLD

Hmm, I’ve held off getting this because I heard it’s more a walking simulator. However, loved TLOU2, Days Gone, God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn. I think I love a good story. I might give this a try then. Cheers
You can also buy this game for about £20 or best offer on ebay brand new sealed. Pre-owned guide price is about £20 pounds.

It's very easy to dislike both games for different reasons.
A lot of people hate the gameplay segments in death stranding, same way that a lot of people really hate terribly written story and characters in tlou2 (and it is just full of brainless shock value).

If you do get both games, you can try switching your brain off for both of them. Although for tlou2 the price is still very high. If you really want it, you should just get sub 30 quid off gumtree where plenty of people are trying to get rid of it.

If you actually want a really good game then Ghost of Tsushima which has a much higher score on metacritic. But this game is actually really good so you'd be really lucky to find it cheaper on Gumtree as most people want to keep the game in their collection

Ghost of Tsushima is worse than both LOU2 and Death Stranding. It’s boring and does a worse job as an open world action game than Odyssey.

Only buy Ghost of Tsushima if you’re a photographer and want to spend 30 house in photo mode, as other than it’s beautiful world, it’s lifeless in pretty much every other way.

Also, don’t base everything on metacritic. People clearly abuse it and it is no longer a valid place to get a true review of anything.
Great, I got Death Stranding and RDR2 for £30.

Thanks, but I disagree entirely with your thoughts on TLOU2. I thought it was easily the best game on the PS4 this gen. I appreciate the story isn’t for all, I personally thought it was fantastic and the switcharoony is one of the best psychological slaps in the face I’ve experienced on any console on any gen. I hated her at first and then found at the end I wanted her to win.

I accept that different people like different things, there are even people out there who like Life of a Black Tiger apparently.

To some people it's not transparent how they are manipulated into liking Abby even when she almost cuts a pregnant girls throat. The game accomplishes this by using petty tricks such as making the player engage in playing fetch with a dog that he is obligated to kill as Ellie, sympathising with an actual transgender whos whole backstory is just being transgender, or even a completely unwarranted (and memed all over the internet) adult scene with her and the pregnant girls boyfriend.

Too bad that no one ultimately wins. There is no satisfying conclusion. This could've been easily solved by offering the player a few choices at the end. It would make more sense to offer the player to get the revenge they were seeking, instead of prompting the player with "revenge is bad so don't do it" after murdering hundreds of people including many innocent ones

^^^TLOU2 Spoiler Alert Post Above^^^

I agree that everyone has their own thoughts on the story. I’m interested you think the manipulation was subtle, I don’t think it was subtle in the slightest. When you look at the story objectively from her side you can’t help but see Joel as the one in the wrong. However, as a father I can absolutely place myself in Joel’s shoes and I’d screw the world in that position as well. No hesitation.

I don’t pay any attention to the LGBT hate this game has had. Quite frankly I think it’s narrow minded attitudes that object to characters sexualities or beliefs. If the reason someone really hates this game is because of the LGBT characters then I’d suggest the problem isn’t the game, but the person playing it. That’s my opinion anyway, worth nothing to anyone else, but it’s mine.

I think a lot of people hate it because LGBT elements are shoe horned into the game, in this case violently, to pander to current real world political trends (trends which are very marketable at the moment)

So I didn’t read any of the spoilers before playing the game, but had picked up the general idea of why people weren’t liking it. I’m as conservative as they come, however playing the game I just never felt it was being as forced down my throat as much as seemed to be made out. If you’d played TLOU DLC from the first game, Left Behind, it was pretty obvious regards the sexuality question. I also think the storyline regards Lev was entirely believable and didn’t seem contrived to push a narrative. However, horses for courses really isn’t it.
Boring game

Started off a bit shakey, graphics looks rubbish but after an hour or two they got far better and the game opens up. Its a decent game, not exactly a great story but gameplay is good and having completed it on normal and platimumed its arse, it was good value for money.
Only found out about the preying when trophy hunting, and never bothered using the flute thing !!
Oh and loading times ? Blimey, can only drool over the supposed ps5 speeds if this is anything to go by,, they are FAST in this game.

My god, I've been playing or trying to play this for 2 hours and so far it is boring. I mean totally boring. Walk collect something walk back and repeat.
I've done nothing yet yet have 5 trophies for not actually doing anything.
I can see this swiftly being sold on if it doesn't improve in the next hour.

Nope this is far far to slow to be enjoyable for me. 2 minute cut scenes followed my 5 minutes of ambling over ground then another 5 minutes then a cut scene rince and repeat.
Gave it a shot, probably the most tedious game I've ever played and when I can turn a game off and not even bother saving it, I know it won't get played again.
Off to ebay it goes.
