This is the most excited I've been for a sequel since Dark Souls, no lie. I cannot fucking wait and I loved everything they showed in the trailer

 

Same. So mysterious and intriguing just from that trailer. I personally loved part 1.

I'm sure Kojima will find a way, but not sure how they're making a sequel given the ending of the first one - definitely super interested though, loved Death Stranding.

I'm curious to see if this is going to lean more into the combat mechanics. I don't put it past a Kojima game to take a hard 90 degree turn in any capacity and the mood and colors of the trailer footage is a lot more "shit is fucked, we have to fight" to me. Wonder if we're knee-deep in one of the extinction events in this one, kind of like Mad Max --> Road Warrior.

I keep hearing that about the ending so pls nobody spoilz it because if I decide to fully give up on playing through it I think I’ll just watch the story as a movie and then maybe try this one.

 

Then don't come into a thread about a sequel! :p

That'd be interesting - so you think it's a prequel or side story? Because the ending was pretty definitive I felt. I also wouldn't hold it past Kojima to completely change the combat - I doubt this will be a fetch quest delivery sim, I agree with you there.

I mean I can't be sure but I bet it's a straight sequel. Despite the ending, I honestly think you can take this anywhere. It's literally a completely different world that isn't bound by any real world logic and so on imo. 

 

I listened to a Kojima interview last night and he said exactly what I wanted to hear really. He was talking about how when coming up with a new IP, it's mandatory to get the basics right, get the basic gameplay dialed in but already know how you want to expand on that with your sequel, to design with that in mind. He also mentioned he had a million more ideas for the gameplay in the first one but considering the time, it wasn't feasible and he's been working on those gameplay ideas ever since.

But i’m interested in gameplay changes/additions that might make me get into this one more! And the next gen decima engine in general.

Maybe they are labeling it as a sequel but it's actually a prequel because the trailer shows everyone before the shit hit the fan so to speak.

Yeah, I mean Bloodporne is right that you can basically make anything but you can't detract from the earned ending of the first game either. And yeah that's why I was confused too, since it's got all the characters in there, etc.

I'm up for anything in that universe quite frankly. The actual story is, yeah, I get the criticisms but the LORE is fantastic and incredibly compelling to me. I love all the emails he threw in there going into dinosaurs, fossils. People can call it nonsense all they want, it's just fun storytelling to me and it works. I think it's great to see a AAA game that gives zero shits about being grounded, believable and realistic but instead goes all in on things we used to take for granted during the PS2 era or whatever. I had a lot of respect for DS in terms of being videogame-as-fuck in that regard despite incorporating actors and all.

I need to give the first game another shot. Downloading the DC on my PS5 now. Not sure when I'll get around to it, buuuut I'm guessing I have some time before this one comes out. 

 

Just be patient and play it in bursts. It's a relaxing game and the environment is absolutely beautiful. I personally loved it.

I guess I should check out the first game at some point but if you're just walking around throwing piss and shit bombs I don't get the appeal. 

Don’t forget you also have a baby strapped to your chest the whole time.
