Who do you think the baby is? Or maybe is it babies are? Maybe the funky fetus was (inside of) us all along?

Dunno what it is but I think the purpose of the babies is to of course detect the shadow monsters, but also to become a sacrifice for the Voidfall. I think gameplay-wise itíll kinda work like losing your souls in Dark Souls: You lose your baby(souls) when you die and have to find a new one(retrieve your souls) or else your next death will be game over(youíll lose the souls permanently).
And it looks like each death leaves a huge crater with ďstrandsĒ coming out where you died, and it seems you can see other playerís craters too? Thereís some sort of vague connection with other players.

Basically what Iím saying is this game is like a combination of Journey and Dark Souls, with a bit of Breath of the Wild.

What are the chances that Death Stranding has a fishing minigame.

Because I would love that poo poo. I should replay FFXV just for the fishing.

Have we seen any live animals in the trailers? They might all be extinct at this point. Well, there were the dead sea animals in the first trailer so maybe theyíre the only ones who survived.

Maybe I'm misreading the videos but the crows look like they follow you and maybe help you? As far as animal chat, we saw very lively sealife when he's teleported underwater in the 2017 trailer, including living whales. But who knows what's even going on there.

Maybe the "other side" is connected to the ocean and sealife somehow, like the Void in Dishonored.

No, the only source for that is the inaccurate and error-ridden Metal Gear Solid 4 Database. There is nothing in the games to suggest that he switched arms between 2 and 4. It was always a robot arm

The MGS4 database is official though, regardless of if there are errors in it. And Iím pretty sure it was explicitly said that the robot arm happened between 2 and 4.

Man that would suck to die every 21 minutes. What if I'm taking a dump or something? How do you sleep? Can't go out to dinner with friends or anything cause welp gonna peace out between the salad and soup courses and gross everyone out. What a bummer of a life/death.

I don't think going out to dinner with friends is really an issue in that world. I am really curious how he sleeps though, he even says it's a problem.

Nah, they actually explain things in this game. The trailers have only been confusing because we had no context.

this stupid game is gonna be so good.

"They're homo demons, they have no issue using anything to get what they want, even causing void outs"

what the gently caress even are you saying game??? I'm gonna play you and love this stupid poo poo but what even are you???

Homo Demens, and as far I can tell void outs are the big explosion that happens after the BTs capture a live person. There seems to be a multiplayer aspect to it so you'll probably see craters around the game where other players have died.

By the way, looks like the guy who appears on the truck in the TGS 2017 trailer is one of the Demens. I guess they won't necessarily be antagonists.

They briefly showed the world map and it was the entire USA...

EDIT: Looks like stuff players leave behind has a like system, kinda like Dark Souls messages? I guess the more liked something is the longer it'll stick around ingame or something?
EDIT2: I think the gameplay is going to be very divisive.

Iíve managed to not watch much of the stuff beyond the Guillermo del toro trailer other than knowing you have ladders and maybe some delivery stuff. Iím getting this game either way. Should I watch the launch trailer or is it really spoilery?

Also in that early trailer it had a lot of WW1 imagery that I donít think has popped back up since (well I havenít seen it in the few screens here and there Iíve seen, maybe there is heaps of it!) is this aesthetic still in the game?

I'd recommend watching one of the gameplay stuff so you have an idea of what the actual game is, since it may not be something you're into.

And the answer to your second question is yes.

I guess I should avoid sprinting unless necessary since it drains stamina?

By the way does it matter if a container is damaged as long as the contents aren't?

Did anyone else notice Sam has the Q-pid in some cutscenes before he gets it in the story? Specifically during his "death" in the first Voidout(not even gonna spoiler this because it's Chapter 1). I guess some events in the story got shuffled around during development.

By the way is chugging Monster the only way to temporarily increase your stamina?
