Plastic baby doll and heat – what could possibly go wrong?
When Death Stranding released on PlayStation 4 on November 8 last year, players were immediately taken with its bizarre and vast open-world. Granted, there were some who called it nothing but a walking simulator that was bloated, frustrating, and slow-paced where others praised it to the high heavens for its unique concepts, lasting appeal, graphics, voice acting, and soundtrack but regardless, director Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions produced a unique video game that had everyone talking. One of the many reasons gamers loved Death Stranding was due to freelance porter Sam Porter Bridges and his little “BB” strapped to his chest. So much so that here we can see someone who has build a custom Death Stranding PC and stuck a plastic baby doll inside of it. Why does the idea of heat from the PC and plastic make me so nervous?
Cami Roebuck who is an actress, filmmaker, and artist has taken to the idea of Death Stranding so much that she has built her very own PC to commemorate the game. Straight off the bat, the first thing you notice is that there is a baby inside, obviously not a real child but a plastic doll. Cami has also decorated the case with the Bridges logo with the case looks like mail Sam would carry around. Even though I was initially concerned about the plastic doll melting, Cami has stated that she has made precautions to ensure the doll won’t go up in flames, ruin her PC and burn the house down.
Hi, hi! For everyone who has expressed concern about our sweet little Lou melting, we took precautions to ensure that she wouldn’t! Here’s a lil glimpse at some of that! It has also been run/done some heavy lifting since she was put in and she’s all good! NO MELTY BABY HERE!!!? pic.twitter.com/c8wqXMTL4O

Cami was able to build her special Death Stranding PC after her boyfriend upgraded to a new set-up leaving her to snag some of the unwanted parts and design her very own computer. If Cami seems familiar to you, it may be because you have seen her in cosplay somewhere. Cami has been invited as a guest to comic and pop culture conventions all over the southeast US where she set up a table, sold prints, signed autographs, and took pictures with fans. Along with that she and her family also sold geek and horror-themed handmade goods from their Etsy store, The MHC Workshop, at these conventions. Throughout her cosplay career, Cami has been featured in numerous publications such as Marvel’s Costober Fest, MTV’s Dragon*Con Coverage, Wizard World Magazine, Cosplay Culture Magazine, and many more. She has also been recognized with awards for her costuming, including Best Comic Book Duo at Dragon*Con, 1st place team-up in Wizard World New Orlean’s inaugural costume contest, first runner-up in Pensacon’s inaugural costume contest, and 3rd place in the legendary tier at the Smite World Championship and HiRez Expo 2017.
Death Stranding launched on PC July 14 and thankfully, you didn’t need a huge monster of a computer to run it. For a modest gameplay experience at 720p/30fps, you’ll need Windows 10, Intel Core i5-3470 or AMD Ryzen 3 1200, 8GB of memory, GeForce GTX 10503GB or AMD Radeon RX 560 4GB, Version 12 of Direct X, 80GB of storage space, and a Direct X compatible sound card. If you want to amp that up a bit and get the ultimate experience, you still don’t need the highest of spec PC. Windows 10, Intel Core i54460 or AMD Ryzen 5 1400, 8GB of memory, Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB or Radeon RX 570 4GB, Version 12 of Direct X, 80GB of storage space, and a Direct X compatible sound card will ensure you get the best out of Death Stranding.
Death Stranding launched on PC July 14 on both Steam and the Epic Games Store. You can also pick it up for PS4 if you haven’t done so already.
