Having completed Death Stranding with the utmost care to obey its logic and comply with its suggestions, I decided to start rebelling in the epilogue to see what happens. Here are my findings.Continue reading
At Geoff Keighley’s 2019 Game Awards show, Death Stranding was represented in many categories. It won three of them: Best Game Direction, Best Performance, and Best Score & Music. What it did not win is Game Of The Year, which went to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

But the bad news gets worse when a certain somebody speaks out…Continue reading
