Death stranding

Death Stranding – Review

Death Stranding is the latest game by Hideo Kojima, previously known for the Metal Gear Solid games. Death Stranding is Kojima’s vision of a broken society, and puts players in charge of putting the pieces together, rebuilding the world, and reconnecting with each other. There is impressive vision on display here, with an immense landscape laid barren for the players to navigate, map out, and get back on the grid. Firstly, the game looks fantastic, even on a base PS4 – the atmosphere and the lighting make the world look near photo-realistic. Excellent motion capture conveys weight and emotion, and the visual details on display are stunning. The same can be said about the sound design overall – the music is great, and the quite moments of contemplation are meditative. Deat...

Death Stranding E3 2018 Gameplay Reveal Trailer

This latest E3 2018 trailer is the fourth for Death Stranding. The first teaser was released two years ago at E3 2016, with the second and third appearing at TGA 2016 and 2017. Work on the first teaser started shortly after establishing Kojima Productions. At the time we were working out of a temporary office, recruiting was still ongoing, there wasn’t enough equipment to fit the bill and the game engine was still up in the air. We really had next to nothing. What we did have, however, was our bond (strand) with Norman Reedus, who immediately accepted the role as our main protagonist, and the idea of the game in my mind. Relying on just these two things, the teaser was created with my own hands in only two and a half months. I still remember the emotion I felt when, after 2 absent years, I...

Death Stranding Will Most Likely Be A Playstation 5 Game?

Hideo Kojima’s upcoming game, Death Stranding, sure has created a ton of hype and lead to a fair amount of head scratching among gamers. It’s also becoming one of the most awaited games for many people, including me. Death Stranding is being developed exclusively for the Playstation 4, with excellent support from Sony powering Kojima Productions. One of the things that’s worrying though is that the game actually might not hit a release date anytime soon, so much so that it might possibly end up being a Playstation 5 game. The thing about Kojima is that he takes time with the games he makes, with development periods averaging 4-6 years. The studio has only been formed a year ago when Kojima was still out and about deciding the engine he wanted to make the game on. He final...

Hideo Kojima Is Using Sophisticated Tech To Drive Visuals In Death Stranding

During Siggraph 2017, Principal Tech Programmer from Guerilla Games, Giliam de Carpentier and Kohei Ishiyama from Kojima Productions held a presentation called Decima Engine: Advances in Lighting and AA, providing a glimpse at the fog system being developed for the upcoming Death Stranding. While the Decima Engine has in-built flexible atmospheric scattering system linked with clouds and lighting, Kojima Productions needed a system better optimized for photo-realistic rendering. They developed a model independently, where information about the sun and the sky light is supplied to the height fog model from the precomputed atmospheric scattering model. Two types of conditions were precomputed, sunny and desnse fog. Using these two as the base conditions, it’s possible to portray differ...

Top 15 E3 2017 No-Shows

E3 2017 was not one of the best in recent years and you could say it was a “filler” year. A lot of no shows or surprise announcements this year, with most games being previously announced games. We’ve covered the highs and the lows, time to cover the no shows that we were expecting or hoping for. Cyberpunk 2077 After being teased in January 2013, we haven’t heard or seen much about it.  With the recent claim of the hackers who stated they would release information and documents about the game to the public, CDPR stated that they would show the game when it was “ready”. We expected maybe another trailer or announcement of some sort but we got nothing. Death Stranding Hideo Kojima had announced before E3 that Death Stranding would not be shown. Then he sta...

Death Stranding Gets A New Trailer At The Game Awards

Hideo Kojima, in addition to being honoured with the Industry Icon Award at the Game Awards, also showcased a new trailer for his upcoming game, Death Stranding. The game is still shrouded in mystery, and the trailer doesn’t do anything to shed some light on it.

Kojima Had Nothing To Do With Metal Gear: Survive

Hideo Kojima, the creator of the Metal Gear franchise denied any involvement in the making of the upcoming title in the series, Metal Gear: Survive during the Tokyo Game Show. When asked about the game and his part in it, he claimed that he knew nothing about it.
