eheh the comments are hilarious, "delivery royale" being the best so far


still I think it's unfair to trash it for the gameplay as seen, it might not be the most entertaining to see but I don't think it'd be that bad to play

I don't recall where but someone online said they couldn't wait to read all of the reviews that will be dancing around "I didn't like it" with "I'm sure it's good but I didn't understand it."

I did similar prediction long ago - this game will get glorious reviews and after a week no one is going to be playing it.

I dunno, my buddies who are big Kojima fans have played it, and they all seem pretty disappointed. Apparently it gets very repetitive very quickly, is completely full of product placement and has a lot of fourth grade tier writing and dialogue.

Have not played it yet, but planning on getting it for PC later. Been watching a full playthrough on twitch. It's 100% Kojima and 100% glorious. I get why people wouldn't like parts of it, it definitely is a departure from what you might be used to if you've only played a few Metal Gear games, but for the sorts of people who like European simulators and Kojima's particular style of weird ass story, it's a perfect combo for me. I love watching it, and I'll love playing it even more. It's not perfect. It's janky in sections, and while it works very well here, I question his insistence on forcing multiplayer into his games where it's repeatedly flopped before... but thus far nothing is a deal breaker and nothing really detracts from the enjoyment. Just minor criticisms.

Gotta say, for how the basic gameplay itself is, well, basic and mundane, I really love how much thought has been put into certain systems. The multiplayer aspect of it is brilliantly done and is one of the best examples of a gameplay design decision working in concert with the story and themes of a game.

The social commentary on social media is weird though. Yeah we're in this post apocalypse where most of humanity is gone and there's evil parallel dimension slime.....but we still give likes.

That sounds exactly like what you get when you let an artist do their thing with no oversight. It's probably janky from lack of editing, but also pure, uncut weirdness.


is completely full of product placement

Is the product placement part of a point he's trying to make, or is it purely money-making? I wouldn't mind it if he put in the effort for it to make sense in-game.

There is no point.

I think the whole point of the game is a giant flexing fuck you to Konami. Think about it, it has a shitton of famous people cameos (look at how much better I'm doing without you now) and a shitton of product placement (look at all this money you could've made with me).

And a game that executives were like "What? No one wants to play something like that."
