$1900 Death Stranding Jacket Released, Sells Out Instantly

$1900 Death Stranding Jacket Released, Sells Out Instantly

An official tie-in jacket between Death Stranding and techwear label Acronym went on sale today for €1750/USD$1900, and even at that price, sold out almost instantly.

This is fairly standard practice for Acronym jackets at the best of times, to be fair, since they’re a highly-desirable piece of clothing, but still.

Death Stranding Is the First Video Game to Get Techwear Right

Death Stranding Makes More Sense Now Than Ever

Death Stranding Makes More Sense Now Than Ever

When Death Stranding launched last year, I thought, boy, this is a timely game. That it was all an allegory for working at Amazon in some dystopian future. Maybe, but now, the game seems more relevant than ever.

It’s not just because the game features the political implications of a fractured country. In Death Stranding, people are holed up in their bunkers. They are isolated. They are social...

Father Makes Death Stranding-Style Pod For His Baby

Father Makes Death Stranding-Style Pod For His Baby

Shanghai cosplayer and cosplay prop builder The_Bai_Ying says he created a special pod to take his baby to the hospital because, according to him, the city’s air quality is bad. But don’t assume he is actually carting his child around in it.

The_Bai_Ying says he created a way to filter the air to protect his infant.

It apparently is a working air filter! He uploaded the footage to the local

Untitled Goose Game And Control Clean Up At The 2020 DICE Awards

A short but delightful game about a rambunctious waterfowl took home top honors at last night’s DICE Awards, joining games like Overwatch, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Fallout 4 in the pantheon of Game of the Year award winners. Meanwhile, Remedy’s Control snagged four awards of its own.

Death Stranding Action Figure Carries All The Cargo

Death Stranding Action Figure Carries All The Cargo

The standard edition of Good Smile Company’s big-headed figure of Death Stranding’s Sam Porter Bridges comes with a couple of cargo cases, his terrain scanner, and the cutest little BB pod you ever did see. The “Great Deliverer” edition comes with two additional head pieces, sunglasses, and a grand total of 21 pieces of cargo, all of which can fit on this poor little plastic person’s back.

Hiking Gets Even Harder In Death Stranding When The Controller Is A Treadmill

Hiking Gets Even Harder In Death Stranding When The Controller Is A Treadmill

Playing Death Stranding really made me want to go hiking for real. Instead, I continued to play Death Stranding. If I only had this treadmill PS4 controller, I could have gotten the best of both worlds.

YouTuber Allen Pan is an electrical engineer known for wacky science experiments and strange gadget hacks, and his latest creation is an ingenious new way to play Death Stranding. The...

One Of The Most Annoying Parts Of Death Stranding Has Been Fixed

One Of The Most Annoying Parts Of Death Stranding Has Been Fixed

A new patch for Death Stranding went live today that finally makes the extended animation that takes place when encountering BTs completely optional.

Death Stranding is a long game made even longer by the repetition of bespoke animations. One of said animations revolved around the Odradek Terrain Scanner, the strange-looking piece of equipment that hangs over Sam’s shoulder and alerts him when...

People Love To Pee Outside Conan O'Brien's House In Death Stranding

People Love To Pee Outside Conan O'Brien's House In Death Stranding

Hideo Kojima never met a celebrity he didn’t want to include in Death Stranding. As such, his latest game contains all sorts of celebrity cameos. Talk show host Conan O’Brien makes one such appearance, as a prepper slash cosplayer. For reasons that are not entirely clear, players have covered his house in pee.

If you play Death Stranding online and approach the Cosplayer’s shelter, you’ll...

How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Spoilers

How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Spoilers

Pop culture moves at lightning speeds thanks to the internet. We are able to discuss whatever we see as soon as we see it. There are no secrets on the internet. Walk around the block and you might stumble into all kinds of information. For movies and games, that means spoilers. Those dreaded plot point reveals or leaked screenshots can spell disaster for many fans. For me, I’ve embraced a...

Death Stranding Update Will Let Players Delete Marooned Cars

Death Stranding Update Will Let Players Delete Marooned Cars

Death Stranding requires players to build massive systems of roads and drive bouncy, buckling cars in order to make deliveries and rebuild America. Bridges and some structures can be deleted, but if a car gets stuck in rocky terrains or if a player leaves it in the middle of a path (either by accident or to be a troll), other players can’t remove the obstruction. A new patch will fix this,...

Death Stranding's Nominations At The Game Awards Can't Help But Raise Questions

The Games Awards is the largest video games awards ceremony of the year in large part because it’s full of new game announcements, but the industry takes the awards seriously as well. This year, with Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding nominated for a number of awards including Game of the Year, viewers are openly wondering whether or not that’s related to The Game Awards producer Geoff Keighley’s...

Death Stranding Has An Oddly Adorable Birthday Easter Egg

Death Stranding Has An Oddly Adorable Birthday Easter Egg

At the start of Death Stranding, players are asked to input their birthday. It supposedly affects a condition called DOOMS, which grants characters special powers. In practice, the date hardly matters in-game and doesn’t affect how your character plays. It does, however, unlock a fourth wall breaking birthday message for players.

The Metal Gear series sometimes asked players to list their...

Let Me Tell You About A Very Specific Death Stranding Problem That Only I Have
Kotaku Game DiaryKotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.

I’m loving Death Stranding so far, but I’m having an unusual problem with it: Heartman sounds exactly like James Kennedy from Vanderpump Rules to me. I can’t unhear it.

In case you were not aware, Vanderpump Rules is a show about horrible people being horrible. Lisa Vanderpump is the owner of the...

I Didn't Realize How Much I Love Suspending Games Until The Outer Worlds Took That Away

I Didn't Realize How Much I Love Suspending Games Until The Outer Worlds Took That Away

The Outer Worlds begins with your character coming out of cryo-sleep. They’ve been out of commission for years as their colony ship traveled across the galaxy, but once awakened they’re able to pick up right where they left off. I’ve come to take it for granted this console generation that my games can do this as well.

It’s become standard for consoles to checkpoint where your game is at...

Death Stranding Chapter Four Is So Freaking Cool

Death Stranding Chapter Four Is So Freaking Cool

Death Stranding is, in its early hours, a slow but beautiful game about exploring an open world and delivering packages. You’d be forgiven for thinking that’s all the game had to offer, but pushing forward reveals more dangerous situations. The first and perhaps most shocking is Chapter Four, where things finally take off at a breakneck pace.

Sony’s video embargo for Death Stranding was...

Kotaku Game DiaryKotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.

Death Stranding’s America is dotted with thousands, possibly even millions, of player-made structures that can make the post-apocalyptic expanse less dangerous and also less lonely⁠—perhaps even welcoming. These structures have a social media-inspired system that lets you click a “like” button on...
