I don't remember any mentions of any dates of birth in the first game. And while I agree that she looked too young when compared to Isaac's design in the original, they've made him much younger looking in the sequel. He def wasn't 43 if we are to take his redesign from DS2.

And if I have to take all the official dates for granted then Ellie is 18 years younger than Isaac and 8 years younger than Nicole, yet she was a love interest in two games. There's no real reason not to make Nicole look like she's in her late 20's.
Did a google check, and a lot of sources said 40+ for Isaac. I don't see much on Nicole or Ellie, but Ellie is definitely younger going by features. To be fair to Isaac and Nicole, their actors are 50+...and Nicole's is the same from Dead Space 2. I do think it's glaring with Nicole because they don't seem to have a 'consistent' look for her despite using the same actress for two games.

Whatever the case, the age is...least of the problems you mentioned. That shit is just weird.

Other than being a third person game with an inventory system where you fight mutated humans in a futuristic setting, it has nothing in common with "Dead Space". It's not a survival horror because the combat is fast action oriented, plus they feed you tons of resources so the inventory management is non-existent. Very little enemy variation due to how combat system is designed around fighting human-like monsters. Camera is very claustrophobic and works poorly in general, level design is an incredibly boring tight and straight hallway 90% of the time, little to no exploration. Barely any story or lore as far as I can tell.
The only things in common I initially thought was the suit designs since I thought it had a similar HUD but it's still a stretch. I don't see much similarities unlike something like The Evil Within with RE.

Been reading a lot that The Callisto Protocol is a pile of rehashed Dead Space shit but done poorly.
Supposedly, the patch they just came out with fixed a lot of technical issues. The only things they can’t really fix right now are the save system and the over bloated combat. They went a little too hard with it and it kind of ruins the horror element of it all.
I heard the only returning creator was the director of Dead Space? May explain a lot of its issues. Mighty No. 9 had that when they only got Keiji Inafune from Mega Man and how he was very clearly not a designer. Gonna be...something if the Dead Space remake turns out pretty good though, similar to how Mega Man 11 was great while Mighty No. 9 was horrible.

I think the director is a vital component to a game, but not THE thing that makes it good. It’s a concerted effort.

Death Stranding 2 was showing at the shitty game awards. I just want Kojima to get a very aggressive form of brain cancer at this point.

I haven’t had a chance to watch anything yet. I’m actually surprised Death Stranding is getting a sequel. The fuck lol.

Yeah that's a risk since people know it's an uber eats simulator. That'll tank worse than the first one.

Yeah same. Talked with my co-workers, surprisingly they were on board with our thoughts lol. Especially after I reminded them of 'certain' features in the original. One of them tried saying Kojima knows what he's doing and I just said 'yeah, before MGS 4 he may have'.

I feel like letting directors run loose can lead to some unfortunate creative issues. Look at Star Wars. While the Prequels are generally more enjoyable than the Sequel trilogy, George Lucas went a bit nuts with his vision.

I prefer the Gundam games. But I’m also one of those weirdos that prefers any Feudal Japan style game, any kind of Gundam game and most medieval era games.

I just want Gundam games to be good without being janky shit. I don't know why they can't just make a high paced one like ZOE2.

Because they're clearly not all made by the impeccable genius mind that is Hideo Kojima /s

I can't remember the last time I played a Gundam-esque game...

Say what you will, but the Koei games are fun. Do I wish there was actual flying? Sure. Gundam Versus is pretty fun too, if a bit clunky at times. Somehow, I still prefer the Dynasty Warriors clones though.

The comment section on the Death Stranding 2 videos are pure cancer.

The first one took six months to even break even. Then they released it twice more and now it turned a profit. No shit. It sold like a wet fart and Kojimbo did everything he could to make it seem like it didn't.

The joke is honestly on them, credit to Kojima for being a master class troll and still getting away with it because the dumbass fans (especially the new generation) doesn't know shit.

I just wish that people would accept and understand that MGS V was not entirely on Konami and was massively on Kojima.
