Stare at Norman Reedus' groin in Death Stranding and he'll punch you in the face

There’s a new 30 minute Death Stranding gameplay video fresh from Tokyo Game Show – and this time it revolves around Norman Reedus’ character, Sam, and his safe house..

The video, below, from the GamersPrey YouTube channel, begins with a blood transfusion, and Sam waking up in his room. He looks dirty from, presumably, an away mission. It doesn’t look like you control Sam directly, here, rather some other entity that interacts with him. Sam can perform a variety of actions, such as clapping and raising his arms as you move the camera about. He’ll tap his feet as if bored. He’ll encourage you to move to certain areas by pointing.

As superstar video game developer Hideo Kojima narrates in Japanese, we see what happens if you repeatedly zoom in on Sam’s groin. At first, he covers his privates with his hands. Zoom again and he pleads with you to move on. Keep doing it, and he’ll eventually close his legs and – the final straw, it seems – punch the camera in the face.
