Arguably the biggest game release of the year dropped this past Friday, the new Hideo Kojima epic Death Stranding. As polarizing reviews come in, Dan and Dave give their take on this wildly indescribable game. With only a few hours under their belt, they certainly are floored by the story and visuals. In other news, Horizon Zero Dawn 2 possibly leaked via suspicious game dev job listing, Pokémon Sword and Shield leaker revealed and Hermen Hulst from Guerilla Games takes over Sony Worldwide Studios.
