    They're saying now that if DS comes out in November then TLOU2 will be bumped to early 2020.

    Is there an ETA of when an actual video, not hidden by hands, will be shown?

    edit: now

    Releasing 11/8 is surprisingly awesome

    Kojima, fill me with your virile seed

    Trailer is utterly incomprehensible

    I can’t believe this is a game we will be able to play before EOY

    Jim Sterling says the best part of the trailer is the ladder

    Sub-Zero says they should be embarrassed for including it

    Reviews are in and it's very polarizing as expected. I don't normally pre-order games, but I found a copy on eBay for $45 so I pulled the trigger.

    Funny IGN Japan gave it 9.5 and IGN Italy a 9.8. I think most people who like Kojima will love it and alot of people won't. I'm excited.

    I haven’t really cared about it for a long while because it just looks like it can’t possibly be fun.. that being said, a couple of reviewers I really respect are legit fawning over it AND IGN gave it a bum ass score. I’m actually pulling for it now regardless if I ever play it

    I want to watch the narrative from it but have no interest in actually playing it. The gameplay I've seen just looks so boring and annoying. But I love Kojima story craziness.

    Probably a game that's better to watch on stream rather than play, lol.

    That's what I figured i would do too, until hearing more about it today. After listening to the skillup review, it really seems like a lot of the fun is in the route/mission planning, deciding what to bring along, and actually traversing the land utilizing all the different gameplay mechanics.

    This sounds like the perfect game for if I were retired and had shit else to do.
    I’ll put it in the backlog for the next 35 years and enjoy it in its remastered glory on PS15.

    Takes 10 hours to open up, according to one streamer.

    its different, challenging, looks incredible, and has some of the best sci fi(?) ive ever seen

    that being said, the game is absolutely not for everyone

    Gonna kop this before Christmas. Wanna take advantage of the most strands and get in before spoilers are absolutely everywhere.

    Fortunately, I don’t think spoilers would really spoil the game at this point because I’ve watched a dozen reviews and probably an hour of gameplay and have no idea what’s going on.

    I think you’re a delivery man trying to make it easier for everybody else to get around.

    at least that’s what I get from watching a couple hours of streamers.

    I agree with most reviewers, the game really doesn’t open up until episode (chapter) 3.

    I was enjoying it before, but now I’m all in
