Say what you want about lackluster gameplay (with some cool stuff though) of Death Stranding...
The story is classic Kojima ridiculous but SUPER good. It is a great story.
It would have made an insanely good movie/series. Though maybe the "gameplay" gives it gravity it needs.
Even if you don't play the game, I highly recommend you watch a "cutscene movie" made from the scenes of the game, well worth your time.
I've sorta always been "meh" on Sepultura.
But, this recent new video has me wondering if I somehow missed something. They haven't clicked for me until now.
Damn I love this:
Sepultura - Isolation
Finally Nile releases an album with decent production again.
The last few were rough to listen to because all the instruments turned to mush.
Thought the loss of their long-time vocalist was going to hurt, but the replacement sounds quite good.
Nile - Vile Nilotic Rites
I think the best description for Death Stranding is "a game that should have been a movie".
Though I could see the gameplay being okay (most of the time) as a casual/chill/relax type of playthrough.
Still, the gameplay is weak and secondary enough, and the story is so much better than the gameplay, that as a book or movie it would have been better, I think.
Otherwise, you're just wasting a lot of time between the good stuff.
is there a heavy metal / blasphemy / evil mastodon? lolol maybe it's time i have multiple accounts (and maybe multiple blogs?) so i can keep my ideas and/or personas separate.
meh whatever, who cares really, i am me, though i try to keep my non-religious somewhat-public-facing persona in the reasonable realm, while allowing myself through writing, music, places like mastodon to push up against boundaries more... in this unfortunately still-way-too-religious USA
cw blasphemy / pain / etc
Sometimes I think my brain goes to very... almost "funny" blasphemy territory though. Some black metal bands go to ridiculous levels and I kinda love it and hate it at the same time.
For instance, a song title that popped in my head: Vaping Nazarene Mist. That's pretty fucking blasphemous, but also kinda hilarious because vaping lol
Outside of that though, I do think a song about drowning in / choking on holy water / etc could be pretty badass if done right.
into: tea, metal, retrowave, tabletop, meditation, minimalism, pusheen, webcomics, d&d
life is one long sigh. one long feeling of 'mono no aware' (物の哀れ)
