A Death Stranding player ran into a heap of bad luck with just about the most heartwrenching fail you can come across in the game.

Death Stranding requires players to run around the barren wasteland of what used to be the United States, and deliver cargo to different places, which can be a very tedious experience.

You’ll quickly find your character loading up on cargo from all over the place as you head towards the next outpost, requiring you to get pretty creative with how you carry everything.

SonyDeath Stranding is out now.

The more gear you stack up, the harder it becomes to travel from place to place. Your player can eventually end up losing his balance and falling to the ground, and if this happens, you could drop all of your gear.

We saw that all play out in downright devastating fashion as a player stumbled and fell down on the edge of a bridge, causing the majority of his cargo to go tumbling into the river.

It’s tough to watch even with the knowledge that it’s not your character, but it’s even tougher if you put yourself into the shoes of the player.

Twitter user ‘atPeteDodd’ shared his monumental fail with the rest of the world, and it quickly went viral as he watched his materials float away down the river.

Collecting that much cargo would definitely pay off once it’s delivered, but by losing it in the manner it was lost means potentially hours of collecting that has been washed away.

Even if he would’ve jumped down and collected the materials he lost, there would have been no way to get it all back as the flowing river would have resulted in too much of a physical toll.

In the future, we can expect Dodd to be more careful with his gear as we see how one minor mis-step can lead to a major disaster. Don’t forget to save often!

A rare copy of Super Mario Bros. 3 sold at auction for a jaw-dropping $156,000 on November 20. The popular Nintendo Entertainment System game had been sealed since 1990, and featured special printing on the cover.

Despite releasing in 1990, many critics and fans still consider Super Mario Bros 3 to be one of the series’ best entires. The genre-defining title made its debut at the tail-end of the NES’ life cycle, and has been heralded as a masterpiece.

Decades later, it’s been thrusted back into the spotlight after a player spent a record-breaking $156k to buy the game at auction. The rare Nintendo collectible which had been sealed for 30 years is now the most expensive game of all time.

Sealed Super Mario Bros 3 sells for mind-blowing amount

In 2020, video game items from the past have seen an explosion in value. Children of the 90s are now adults and willing to shell out an absurd amount of cash to re-capture their childhood nostalgia. For instance, a copy of Pokemon Red & Yellow sold at auction on November 21 for over $162k combined.

A sealed copy of Super Mario Bros 3 has now set a new world record and has become the most valuable game ever after selling for $156,000 at the Heritage Auctions. On November 20, a fan of the groundbreaking NES title outbid competitors to snatch the collectible for as much as a house.

Before digging through your old Nintendo games in the garage, it should be pointed out that collectible was sealed since 1990 and is in pristine condition. Popular grading company WATA looked over the item, and gave it a rating of 9.2 – or an A+.

The item was also a holy grail for Mario collectors as it featured a rare printing version of the artwork. “Copies of the game with “Bros.” formatted to the left and on top of Mario’s glove, are very rarely found in sealed condition,” the auction listing read.

According to several reports, many didn’t even know a sealed version of the unique printed game even existed. The fact that unknown collectibles can be discovered from out of nowhere is fascinating, to say the least. Who knows what title will be the next to break the record.

It should be also be stated that Super Mario Bros. 3 is now the most valuable game on record in terms of being sold at auction. There are several other rare games such as the infamous Gold Nintendo World Championships cartridge that could probably fetch more if a collector is ever willing to part with the scare item.
