New Death Stranding Details Revealed


In an interview with IGN, Hideo Kojima spoke briefly about his upcoming title Death Stranding, and gave just a little bit more insight into what we saw with the latest trailer. I have put all of the new info into bullet points below for easy reading. Enjoy!

  • Life and Death is one of the themes
  • Players never truly die in the game
  • When killed, players are sent to the "purgatory" water area seen in the trailer
  • Progress is not reset when this happens
  • Sam, the main character, possesses unique abilities
  • The rain is what caused the man in the trailer to age rapidly
  • The rain is called Timefall, and it is very important to the story
  • Most characters in Death Stranding are aware of Timefall
  • The baby seen in all three trailers is the same baby
  • The baby is important to the story, as well as the mechanics of the game
  • The shoulder robot seen in the trailer has a name, but we don't know it yet
  • The robot will also be a part of the game's mechanics
  • The latest trailer is the earliest in the timeline, and takes place shortly after the start of the game

Lgndary Thoughts - The Game Awards 2017


Happy Friday everyone! We’ve had quite a week, and it isn’t even over yet since PSX is just getting started! Speaking of PSX, however, I won’t be writing about it. At least not today. Sony rightfully set expectations low tonight, and didn't have a real keynote. So instead, let’s discuss the livestream that took place last night, The Game Awards. Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!

I gotta say, this year’s Game Awards was easily the best there has ever been. There were a couple of awkward moments, sure, but nothing too bad, and they were all overshadowed by the excellent show. Amazing reveals, the live orchestra, and even a few touching and fun moments made for an exciting and enjoyable show. And most importantly, I felt that the winners of each award were largely deserved. Something that isn't always true for awards of this nature.

Moving on to the announcements, I gotta start with Death Stranding. That trailer has to be one of the most incredible, insane videos I have ever seen. Out of context, it is hard to pull any logic out of it, but that doesn’t cut into my interest in the slightest. Who are these people? What are the otherworldly creatures? What are the devices on their shoulders? Why is the baby so important? Why is dying from self-inflicted stab wounds better than being taken by the creatures? The only thing that was disappointing about it was the absence of a “Coming 2018” at the end. I know it was always unlikely this would launch next year, but I had hope.

After that, I can’t help but say that the remaining biggest reveals had to go to Nintendo. Breath of the Wild DLC release, and Bayonetta 3 have me so incredibly pumped. It was also nice to see the best game of the year going home with the Game of the Year award!

Other than that, there isn’t much to say other than well job to the team who put the show together. I feel like, for the first time, The Game Awards had the announcements, and the significance to tackle E3.

That’s all from me folks! I’ll be sure to post any news that comes out of PSX this weekend. And if you see anything that hasn’t been posted yet, please shoot me a message! Other than that, have a good weekend everyone!

Stardew Valley Confirmed For The PS Vita


Coming from the developer:

A number of people have been curious about the PS Vita port we mentioned way back in January, and I’m happy to announce that a PS Vita port is actually happening! It’ll be available next year, and it’ll have cross-buy too, so if you’ve got Stardew Valley on Playstation 4 you won’t need to buy it again to play it on your PS Vita! However, it’s worth noting that we can’t port the multiplayer update to PS Vita.
