    Finally got around to pre-ordering a physical, anyone else aboard the hype train?

    It's Kojima and he's doing something that isn't MGS, so I was kind of obligated to preorder.

    That said, still zero clue as to what's going on in this game.

    I'll wait until I see some more gameplay. It's verry bizarre looking, even for a Kojima project

    I've been on this hypetrain for years. Since the moment Kojima left Konami. MGSV is one of my favourite games ever and Kojima is one of the only trustworthy people in the video game industry.

    That's really surprising considering Sony funded the game so hard an its using the Horizon engine which hasn't made it to PC, either. Weird, but good for those people that don't have PS4s.

    Honestly, it sounds similar to what happened with Street Fighter V. Sony helped fund it, but it also made its way to PC.

    Right? I guess the term is "momentary exclusive"... Will be cool seeing Decima on PC though.

    I checked the reddit subforum and they are posting links now it was announced a year or two ago that it would be a timed exclusive and the cover released a few months ago didn’t say PS exclusive like others do.

    It sounds like I'd hate it. 80 hour campaign, most of which is spent delivering packages and trying to figure out how to go up and down hills without tipping over. Pedestrian Fed Ex simulator 2000. Ugh.

    And that's what I read in a glowing review! (Kotaku)

    Gotta be honest, I'm torn between getting my preorder and see what the fuck is this, and canceling it and putting it towards Jedi Fallen Order. I'm going to play this game at some point, it's just do I want to pay 60 bucks for it or wait until its 30 - 40?

    You're telling me a game that has Conan O'Brien in it, wearing an otter helmet/suit won't be a 10/10 classic?

    I'm shocked, utterly shocked.

    Def not a game for me. Sounds like a painful ordeal.
    But hope it delivers for all those wanna be couriers out there. No pun intended.

    I'm about 20 minutes in... Well, it's visual breathtaking and has a nice soundtrack so far...

    3 or 4 hours in, not really sure about how I feel. Sort of has that feel of a lot of indie games where the game play ranges from relaxing busy work to mildly stressing busy work. But then you're doing a stealth bit in a massive valley and you remember how good Kojima is at stealth games. This is the furthest I've made it in a MGS game without killing anybody. And then you're trying to sneak around some ghosts while stopping a baby from crying. Need more time, but so far I haven't wanted to play for very long stretches, but not sure if that's the game's fault.

    I will say Kojima needs to stop giving characters multiple names and then using those names as names for other things. It's needlessly confusing and none of them are good puns.

    Waiting to see what the final reviews are before I spend the money. I have 4-5 unfinished games so far and I'm not in a hurry to add more to that collection.
