Happy Birthday from Death Stranding!

18 posts in this topic

This is actually so awesome, I was wondering what the birthday selection thing did at the start of the game.  Happy birthday to you!

They do that in at least another Kojima game that I know of. Of course they used the false date I gave them, but still a nice touch :D

 

Edit: oh! And happy birthday by the way!

Thanks, everyone!

 

Not actively fishing for any birthday wishes, but I thought it was nice to share this little detail with all of you. I'm fairly lucky my birthday takes place one week after Death Stranding's launch, to discover it so early. ;)

The same thing would happen in MGS 5 guess it's something Kojima likes to do, Happy Birthday!

I knew there had to be a little happy birthday in there somewhere like in MGS5! I sat at the birthday screen for a solid 10 minutes trying to decide if i wanted to lie and say it was my birthday that day or go with my actual birthday in case it had some sort of story relevance

Haha I was waiting for someone to post this. It’s too bad they don’t bring you cake and everything.

 

Hey, happy birthday to you! 🙂

Well, they can't, since the cake's a lie.

That hurts. The delivery man is yet again underappreciated 😢

Go rest in your private room on your birthday for another little surprise as I found out on my birthday the other day.

That's pretty cool touch.

 

If I was playing this I'd have to wait nearly a year to see it since my birthday was 2 days before this came out.

I don't know if this has been shared by people over here yet, but regardless: I thought I'd drop this here.

 

Today happens to be my birthday, and I decided to start up Death Stranding to play a bit. I'm still early on in the game, and exploring at my own pace. Mistakenly pressed the touch pad button to "call out", when I actually needed the map, and ... Well, you can guess what happened.

 

 

It's a nice little touch. So, you might want to keep this in mind if your birthday is coming up. :)

happy birthday

i have seen vid's/livestreams of ppl talking about b/day surprise  but i wont see it in my own game as my b/day isn't till march

I mean, wouldn't changing your PS4's clock result in it showing?

yes but at same time it will change the timestamp for the trophy as the ps4/any sony system it uses the time/date u set on ur system to put timestamps

i did way back in ps3 cant remember which game but i changed the time/date on my system then when i got the trophy pop for said thing..it showed t/stamp with the set info

also for some games like death stranding.. when u start it will ask u to add ur b/day it will show day/month u have set when u made ur psn account...and yes in game u can change the day/date if u want..

Uhm, no, trophy time stamps use a hidden clock you have no power over. It can only be controlled by the Sony servers, hence why you will get a missing time stamp on any trophy earned from a machine that hasn't logged into them before.

 

As for the game, since I haven't played it yet and made sure to remain completely in the dark about it, can someone clarify without spoilers: Are those voices other players that were shown there's someone with a birthday in the vicinity, or are they actually the game itself?

ok the part u said about> no, trophy time stamps use a hidden clock you have no power over. It can only be controlled by the Sony servers, hence why you will get a missing time stamp on any trophy earned from a machine that hasn't logged into them before.<

i dont understand what u mean? as i have had my account since before sony even added the option to have trophies in there games

and yes what i said about (the timestamp for the trophy as the ps4/any sony system it uses the time/date u set on ur system to put timestamps)

it is true i just cant show a example becouse i have so many games i have played it would take me forever to find just 1 example

also back in the ps3 era when trophies 1st got released my freind had created a dummy psn account and had time/date/year settings on his ps3 set to different settings to what it actually was...example if it was say **10th/January/2007 he would set it as 19th/December/2010** and all trophies he got on that day would have that date as when he earned them **just used that date as example to prove my point**

as for ur Question>> As for the game, since I haven't played it yet and made sure to remain completely in the dark about it, can someone clarify without spoilers: Are those voices other players that were shown there's someone with a birthday in the vicinity, or are they actually the game itself? << i dont know how it was done..
