Hideo Kojima was invited to the Tribeca Film Festival to say very little about Death Stranding, his next game in development. Though fans expected some crumb of a reveal from Death Stranding, this is Tribeca, not E3. As for the subject of video games, though, Kojima did not say much in specific. "Did you write the role [in Death Stranding] for Norman?" Death Stranding is coming to the PlayStation 4 ... some day.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: Rogue One may have been blockbusters in the moneymaking sense but they were, rightly, critiqued either for plot holes or leaving too much on the table with their characters. Yet if you were wondering why The Force Awakens just ... worked, where Rogue One didn't, here is an excellent deconstruction by YouTube’s Lessons from the Screenplay, which highlights the storytelling flaws in both films and why Rogue One's were worse. As recycled as The Force Awak

How Overwatch still stuffs story into a campaign-less game

Overwatch has become notorious for being a game with exhaustive lore — almost all of which exists outside of the game itself. “The thing about these characters is, playing the game, you really only know them through two things,” Chu explained. Chu said that its success was encouraging for the Overwatch team, who sought further opportunities to get players exposed to the game’s story. Preceded by a comic that laid out all of the context, the event follows the original members of the Overwatch tea

Hideo Kojima’s perfectly bizarre explanation of how Death Stranding’s coming along

During his interview at the inaugural Tribeca Games Festival in New York City, Hideo Kojima squirmed through several Death Stranding-based questions he could not answer. But when moderator Geoff Keighley asked a very simple one — how’s production on Death Stranding going? “Let’s say that Norman’s character is walking in New York,” Kojima began when trying to further explain what the studio is working on. Before continuing, he clarified: Death Stranding is not set in New York. “Who the character
