    @garsync what do you mean overuse of words and metaphors?

    Sam Porter Bridges. A man who ports packages, between ports, who has destroyed bridges with his family, buts builds literal and metaphorical bridges to reconnect everyone??

    Fragile, who works for a delivery company called fragile who delivers fragile things, has a fragile back story with a fragile relationship with her father but isn't that fragile?!

    Die hard man. A man so hard that he just won't die. Man.

    Nope, no idea what you're talking about ;)

    Now you put it like that, not sure why I have any issue with it... :)

    This is my first full Kojima game, not a massive fan of stealth games, although always want to go back and play the series. (Will never happen)

    @Derblington Endearing but for a man with so much imagination it is really weird. Maybe he got writer's block with names in the past and picked a solution that would work forever.

    I only properly started yesterday and I'm about 6 hours in, but I think it's brilliant. I'm not sure yet, but I woke up thinking about it, which is a good sign.

    So my ladders are one use only? I was trying to collapse them but it seems that just makes them disappear?

    The idea is that they stay there for others to use.

    I think you reclaim some materials if you pick them up. You should leave them there for others - and yourself if you ever need to go back! :)

    Ahh, I see. I thought that was just built bridges and stuff.

    This really is absolutely bonkers. Never played anything quite like it.

    Tonight i managed to complete Ep9 which felt like the end. But no, Ep10 here we go. It feels good to know there's more. In some ways i don't want the game to end, as i've grown used to living in the Death Stranding world. The scene of Amelie and Sam running along the beach, what was Hideo thinking? lol! i'm sure i've seen that scene from a film or tv show.

    So is Sam Porter Bridges his actual name? Or is it just Sam, and they like to call out the job title and company as well?

    If so I'm gonna refer to mates like this to get their reaction.

    @Zidargh After finishing the game at 50 odd hours I can categorically tell you I still don't have a fucking clue .

    Also I initially read the last word of your comment as "erection" and now I can't unsee that.

    It's handy when your job is the same as your name. Or your name is also the name of the company you work for. Or your name is also the role you play. Gah!!!

    Also did everyone know that Die Hardman's real name is John McClane? :rolleyes:

    Really, oh that's good to know.

    Ep10 I could have done the minimum required and crossed from one end of the map to the other, as requested, as Sam is the cargo. But, i found myself taking an easy stroll along the sea edge and heading inland to a mini drop off point to grab some upgrades and a delivery. It made sense to pick a deliver that was on route to where i was heading anyway. I've become somewhat addicted to delivering stuff. For the moment, i'm still on Ep10 :D

    There's some really emotional stuff coming up. Can't really say more than that.

    Give it time, you'll soon become attached to your BB, especially when he's saving you from being fondled by a gang of BTs.

    I've just got to Chapter 8, when it's good it's absolutely brilliant, easily one of the best games I've played in recent years.

    Mule camps can fuck off though, it may be me being absolutely terrible at stealth but everytime I try I have to go near one it always ends up kicking off with me trying to run away from a truck full of them.

    @Switch024

    I got so fucked off with a particular mule camp, that I used lethal rounds and killed them all. Voidouts be damned.

    All completed now. I still have no idea what actually happened. Iíve read a few theories that made some sense. Much like the majority of his games I enjoy the experience rather than figuring out every meaning.

    I do enjoy running them over and twatting them with a XL 32kg box of your finest pressed resin.

    I have been very tempted to kill a load of them just to see what happens. Itís not like they donít deserve it. Thieving cunts.

    Yeah the frustration always seems to kick in when dealing with combat in this game. Especially when youíve got to get your gear back and itís getting damaged throughout.

    While I am sure DS makes sense in the mind of Hideo Kojima, my mind struggles to make sense of most of it. I am still waiting for the moment the fragments click into place. For the moment, much of the talk of Ďbeachesí etc fails to mean all that much, but I sort of get it.

    Here is one example: The World War 1 scenes appear to amount to a nightmare in Samís mind. Last-night after completing a Cliff battle set in a jungle, which looked rather amazing, Sam obtains Cliffs dog-tag. Sam then wakes up in a Bridges room, and he has the dog-tag. From this I gathered two thoughts: 1. Cliff exists and the battle(s) happened or 2. Not only are the World War moments in Samís head, but the Bridges Centre is in Samís head also. Iím more going with the 2nd thought. I find it odd, every time Sam is in the Bridges Ďroomí it contains the green toys on shelf.

    I have considered three other ideas: 1. Is Sam in a nut house, and DS is nothing more than thoughts that make sense only to the individual. 2. Sam is in some sort of Coma and DS is some sort of wake up procedure. 3. Sam is pare of some Military experiment.

    One thing I am certain of, Death Stranding came to Hideo Kojima at a time all he wanted to do was give up and go an sit on an island (beach). He had no direction to go in, once Konami had given him the boot, and his no.1 passion, Metal Gear Solid (his baby) had been taken away from him. Like Sam Porter Bridges, Hideo started over with nothing, a PC in a room (he mentioned this on Twitter) and went on to make connections (strands) that lead to the creation of Death Stranding

    Anyway.. back to EP12

    Tbh if you're at chapter 12 and struggling with some of the basic concepts then it's not going to clear things up much more 😉

    Finished DS. Have to say I loved it, and so many moments will stick with me. I don't want a sequel tho, feels like a complete story.

    Pretty sure I won't go back and 5 star all the bases tho. I do keep thinking about the game tho...

    One thing that I didn't hit home for me was the mass extinction talk, when there was pretty much no life in the world anyway. Felt like it had already happened in the stranding
