    This isn't uncommon on Metacritic. Astral Chain also saw thousands of user reviews suddenly removed. Very likely bot accounts that get purged from time to time.

    I still don't know what this game is about and I never have seen gameplay. Is this a walking sim? Can you shoot people? More or less cutscenes than MGS4?

    I haven't played it either but out of curiosity just watched the first hour of a silent LP on Youtube. I'd say it's about 50% cut scenes so far.

    I am intrigued by the story (despite a seeming overabundance of plot hooks) but the gameplay thus far is quite literally a walking simulator.

    Kinda. You make deliveries from point A to B. The walking has a balancing system mechanic and the terrain is your obstacle. You have vehicles, ladders (can be placed vertically or horizontally), shelters, ropes, different exo skeletons, loading carriers that you can skate down hills...
    Yes you can shoot people. Grenade launchers, rocket launchers, assault rifles, shotguns, pistols, cargo magnetic rifles...
    Less cutscenes than MGS4. Chapter 1 and 2 are overloaded with cutscenes, then Chapter 3~9 are pretty much cutscene free save for a short introductory cutscene at the start of the chapter.

    They sure did choose one of the shitty songs to sing at the awards though. Either that or she just did bad.

    I'm not sure what exactly you mean by "she", but CHVRCHES was the band performing at TGA. Jenny Plant isn't part of it, she just sings the B.B. Theme.

    I couldn't tell who it was. It could have been a man for all I know with how things are. Those awards sucked worse than I remembered.

    I fail to understand how a studio that has released only a single game is good enough to be "Studio of the year".

    In '93, Id Soft had already released 13 games. What is your point?

    They released only a single game in 1993, it's called Doom.

    Not even my point. Kojima Productions, the independent studio, has released a single game so far. Not "a single game this year".

    Ok, so some other example - Valve, Half-Life, 1998.

    My opinion would still be the same. Still, if you are trying to say Death Stranding is at the same level of Half-Life, then I pray for your soul.

    Propably not ever gonna touch DS or any other cinematic but my post was about how your rule was wrong.

    If some young company release 10/10 game then it deserves title of studio of the year moar that one that released 5x8/10 games easily.

    True, but neither DS nor Half life are 10/10 game.

    Kojima Productions isn't a new studio, they just went independent after the split with Konami. Just like IO-Interactive went independent after the split with Square Enix.

    When I first started playing Death Stranding I thought terrain and balance mechanics were annoying. I thought hiking around natural environments should be relaxing but they made it stressful instead. I changed my mind completely. Once you figure everything out and especially once you get an exoskeleton, traversing terrain becomes very satisfying and I can already tell I'm going to miss this mechanic in other games. I watched someone play Shadow of the Tomb Raider and I thought that game could really make use of it.
