Also I hope it’s not only for PS5, and that it will be on the 4 as well.

One of the cardboard boxes in MGS2 just read "THE ORANGE" which was a source of much hilarity.

This being marketed as a "director's cut" is pretty funny, as though Death Stranding (2019) was in some way not Kojima's vision.

Director's Cut is as meaningless a phrase for its original use as Game of the Year Edition

We have a blu ray of Alien that boasts a "DIRECTOR'S CUT" and it's introduced by Ridley Scott saying that the original release was his cut and that the only reason he did an alternative cut was because Fox asked him to so the blu ray would sell better

Hopefully this one opens with Kojima explaining that it only exists to help pay for his next game

MGS2 had Substance and MGS3 had Subsistence too so it's not unprecedented that Kojima goes back to a game to add and tweak stuff.

Director's Cut is a reference to the Director of Bridges, Die Hardman :tinfoil:

There used to be people called “directors”. They would oversee a creative project and steer it towards its goal. Kind of like how Bridges steers porters towards rebuilding America, don’t you think? 😊😊

Kojima always hated making trailers since you have to give stuff away by virtue of getting people excited for your product. So I think if he had always had his way all of the MGS trailers would have been this variation of weird instead of showing all the guns and explosions and poo poo.


That said i'm glad this is the kind of trailer we got. Something strange that only major fans of Kojima's specific brand of humor and quirkyness will jive with that absolutely goes against the expectation of "oh man is Sam about to start sneaking around this room and CQC'ing people with his rope?"

Sam would need to sneak through there but I'm guessing it's while carrying someone in the box

Wilkins Micawber

as we leave this existence
looking for another


Fallen Rib

Got a BB named Lou, cuffed to BRIDGES, feelin' blue
Now my baby named Louise, stackin' paper, makin' cheese
Fresh pizza full of cryptos see-the ar-row? I-ain't FedEx
Cufflinks glowin', check my email, it's from Conan, cybersex


Slangin' crystal noon to night cuz I keep my poo poo tight
Zippin' round on tuning forks, pop a crypto with a BITE
And a sticky is my gat, Poppin wheelies, smokin' crack 
U call my rear end Fragile, cut your cord with a -SNAP-


Sensin' BTs, poo poo it's red, chiral bullets, super-dead
Packin heat, HG custom, ridin' dirty, structures rustin'
Private locker, fillin' up, no more bandwidth, room for drugs
Low Roar bumpin' in my cans, on my bike, no earplugs


Deadman, Heartman, Hardman are the boys in my crew
Burn down bodies, timefall party, giant whale, it's BBQ
Victor Frank, Film Director, and there's also The First Prepper
Riot shotgun filled with blood, hope they brought the chilli pepper


Sam Bridges, Sam Bridges, yo he the man
He got a big dick and he don't eat SPAM
Sam Bridges, Sam Bridges, yo he's our boy
Timefall party up in here, life in the Death Strand


Pass that dab, every day, with my porters, crossin' rivers
Rollin' up, on your shelter. Need my package? I deliver
Smokin' ice, stacking cash, got a coin charm on my pack
Second sled, topped with dough, I'm an otter, no Prozac


Pullin' up, rusty truck, pussy gotcha stabilizers
Got my orders, cross that tar belt, eatin' lobster, appetizer
Golden handprints on my chrome, grasping, grabbin' paint job blown
On my trike, thousand kilos, moving bricks, in the e-zone


Blowin' up, poo poo's the bomb, my boy Higgs, we all get lit
Hit the club, feelin' strong, now the late-night can begin
Hit the floor, Chiral Artist's Mother, givin' me new kicks
Lace 'em up, showin' love, and she lets me suck her dick


Engineer on the decks, The Musician poppin' X
Jake Wind, sit and spin, postin' up and tryna flex
Baby Mama and her twin, makin' punch, bathtub gin 
Novelist's Son, kush he grows, toss the gourds into the bin
Seagram's, grain, and Monster are the liquids they pour in
Gettin' hosed up, call it Voidout, and we losin' consciousness


Sam Bridges, Sam Bridges, yo he the man
Eats pussy all night, smokes weed by the gram
Sam Bridges, Sam Bridges, yo he's our boy
Linkin' nodes, feed a BB, to a trash can


Floating carrier times two, got a safe place for my boots
Armored truck, time to gently caress, Amelie, astral suck
But she's also like my sister? Princess Beach, girl I missed ya
And she's also like my mother? Double incest, with no rubber
Power glove, hit that rear end, she a Catcher, and I'm filling
When she cums, it's extinction, time to bust, call it Bridge Link


Now Hardman on the decks, makin' bread, cashin' checks
Line of powder on his mask, MF DOOMS, havin' sex
It's The Elder, send a bot, hope he gets his meds I dropped
Ain't seen him in a month, now he mad, spooky, gone


WWI, blazing tanks, creatures Beachin', front line trenches
Vietnam, running from, homes and people bathed in napalm
Chiral matter,  Clifford Unger, out the ocean, attack on Titan
Got his goggles and his skullbois and his spectral cigarette


There's a Gazer on my penis, BTs hungry, much like Slimer
Gooey hands, on my balls, no there ain't no feeling finer
I'm a SLegend, blood you coughin', Lovecraft Reject, octo-dolphin
Thru this vog, burnin' trees, now you can not see me flossin'


But I got time for my kid, we make loaves, u feel the pressure
Timefall wheat, chop you down, a Beached Thing meets autothresher
Quipu rangin', poo poo I'm slanging, grind it up I'm tryna toke
Fellow porters, drop your cargo, bro he know yo poo poo is broke
Thumb him up, get rejected, and he givin' ur poo poo back
Baby Lou, blowin' bubbles, shaped like hearts and fulla smoke


Cuz Sam Bridges, Sam Bridges, yo he the man
Shotgunnin' up to 4 of of Timefall tall boy cans
Sam Bridges, Sam Bridges, yo he's our boy
Timefall party up in here, life in the Death Strand


Roll a spliff, I'm reborn, cut you down, stank-rear end foot corn
Wrap you up with my Strand, you can say that I'm reborn
Pass the blunt, I can't stop, goin Mule these rhymes I drop
Chasin' clout, blowin' clouds, 5 stars only, Robocop


Time for sayin' my goodbyes, not all villains wear a mask
Every hero has a story, all you gotta do is ask
Take a poo poo, and you'll find, any less undignified
Quickie shower, grab grenades, BTs SPLAT, it's time to RIDE


Electricity fire (vroom) and a up-side-down-rain-bow
Rip through meadows, makin' good time, gainin' speed to hit the sideshow

Got these marks on my skin, that don't wash off from giant squid
I'ma keep on keepin' on, til this baby pops its lid
Get my Odradek wet er'day, and your cargo lookin' weathered
You and me, all alone, whistling & stayin' tethered


Extinction entity, hell I speak in hieroglyphics
u got zero Ha or Ka, pussy counterfeit Egyptian
Chiral crystals on my bud, yo i got your new prescription 
Legend a'Legends, grow in ratings, destination? The Pacific
Ludens Mask, Timefall Anthem, got my heater we ain't cold 
I love you, B Lou, lullaby, Chiral Gold

The legend is that Kojima always edited all of his trailers himself, though?

And he's loving amazing at it. As much as I loved MGSV the trailers for the years running up to release were loving phenomenal and IMO were maybe more evocative than the final product. I still go back and watch some of them like the Elegia trailer.

The Death Stranding trailers were also great but it was weird how they ended up just basically being mostly cutscenes from the early game.

Well some of it was from the very end of the game :v:

My favorite thing about the trailers is how the game ended up it being anywhere close to as weird as the trailers made it seem

I would argue that the game is weirder than its trailer. You got a lot of disconnected imagery, but having it all in context improved it a lot!

Finally got a PS5 and I started replaying Death Standing. I want to wait for the directors cut, but, drat. The gameplay is so good, and I never finished on my first time with the game. Wish I knew how long I’d have to wait for the new version.

Just finished the game. Honestly wasn't expecting much but it was really good and I honestly don't have many complaints about it. Way better than "Kojima walking simulator" had me think. I was actually incredibly surprised by how well paced the game was.

Favourite part was the whole battle with Higgs where Sam just goes nah don't need anything but fists and a strand to deal with this guy. And getting to beat the absolute living hell out of him. Great fun.

Yeah, I didn't walk away from it thinking "I wonder what Kojima thinks about X". I am curious about the possible Metal Gear shoutouts though, because there was not a single one in Death Stranding.
