I’m photographing my Death Stranding road trip with BB, and loving every second

It's been over two weeks since Kojima's mad courier sim Death Stranding came out on PC, but during that time I've only just about managed to make it across Lake Knot to the game's second big area.

Feature: 2020 vision

2020’s most exciting new PC games

Over the break we had a chance to do some serious scientific study of this business we call games, and it turns out that games are actually good. 2020 in particular has a healthy mix of big budget bonanzas and smaller indie plates to suit everyone's discerning tastes. And, as you know, the RPS treehouse is the most discerning, so to make it easier for…
