We’ve rounded up some recommendations - both general tips and some newly added…

Toot! Metro 2033 Publishers Say No New Game In 2017

That story about word of a new Metro coming in 2017? Yeah, the publishers have responding with a statement saying that sure, they're planning another one but nah, don't expect such a thing next year. Where a site for the original Metro novels once said 2017 would bring a new game following on from Metro 2035, it now talks about "An untitled Metro project" due…

Book ‘Em Up: New Metro Game Coming In 2017

We'll be revisiting the subways of post-apocalyptic Moscow next year, it seems, according to a website for the book series first-person shooters Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are based on. With the English edition of Dmitry Glukhovsky's trilogy-capping novel Metro 2035 coming in December, the site has added of a timeline of the series with a little note saying yup, another game will follow.

The 10 Best Games Based On Books

Books! They're like films without pictures, or games that are all cutscene. Old people and hipsters really like them, teenagers think they're like totally lame, and quite frankly we should all read more of them. There are countless games inspired by books - most especially Tolkien, Lovecraft and early Dungeons & Dragon fiction - but surprisingly few games based directly on books. Even fewer good…

Metro Redux review

The beautifully bleak first-person shooters Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light have both been retooled and are being resold: a bit weird since the latter only came out last year. Is Metro Redux worth the dough if you already own the original games? How about if you don't? How about if, like me, you own one but not the other? Well, here's whut ah thank,…

Rail Replacement: Metro 2033 & Last Light Revamped

Update: Relax, everyone! A bit, at least. Steam's offering each Redux for half-price if you own the original game. Huh! Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are being "remastered" for re-release, which is a funny thing. The pair of solid shooters are still quite recent, after all, not to mention pretty enough. It all seems quite odd until you remember new consoles now exist--shiny new consoles hungry…

Tunnel Vision: Eyes-On With Metro: Last Light

Er, I suppose there's some uncertainty that Metro: Last Light might actually be released, but for now let's proceed on the basis that THQ have managed to save themselves from the moneyan apocalypse. Last Light, from an hour or so I spent watching real-time play recently, appears to be almost a do-over of the ambitious but awkward Metro 2033 rather than a traditional sequel. It's…

Wait, What? – The Humble THQ Bundle [Updated]

Update: I got in touch with the Humble Bundle folks to find out more about how this out-of-nowhere partnership came about. See what they had to say after the break. Original: I was incredibly tempted to begin this post with a joke about how the charity slider on this Humble Bundle is redundant, because THQ is already basically a charity. That would be mean, though, so I…

No Rage Against The Dying Of Metro 2’s Multiplayer Light

This is scandalous! When I buy a shooter, I expect - nay, demand - for it to include a multiplayer mode that makes a mockery of the carefully-created fiction, is defined by the hollow pursuit of unlocks and is so rapidly abandoned by its players that it's near-impossible to find a match about a fortnight after release. So hearing that Metro 2033 sequel Last Light…

Dear Videogames, Stop Telling Me Everything

When I beat the absolutely wonderful Thirty Flights Of Loving over the weekend, I had precisely one immediate reaction: “Wait, what just happened?” I cannot even begin to tell you how much that excites me. But then I decided to write an article about it, largely because one of my greatest passions in life is defying nonsencial figures of speech. At any rate, Thirty Flights…

Casting Light On Metro: Last Light

4A's sequel to Metro 2033, Metro: Last Light, seems to have been slipping beneath our radar a bit. The post-apocalyptic original was so close to being proper good that it's definitely worth keep an eye on what they're up to next. With that in mind, we caught up with THQ's Huw Beynon to find a bit more about what's happening with the game, which is…

THQ Registers “Metro 2033: Last Light”

This story's about as flimsy as a wet paper bag full of knives, but let's soldier on. Joystiq note that THQ have registered a domain by the name of "Metro 2033 Last Light", which could very well be the name of the forthcoming Metro 2033 sequel. ...yeah. That's all I've got. Who's excited? I'm excited. If Metro 2033 passed you by, it was an atmospheric…

A Metro 2033 Demo, Eh?

Well, better late than never. I'm not sure which bit of the game it features, but this 3gb demo seems to have surfaced last week and can be grabbed over on Fileshack. Definitely worth taking a look if you have any interest in the Russian post-apocalypse, which we were fairly enthused about earlier in the year. Alec wrote up some conclusions about it here. I…

Metro 2033 review

This Stalker-meets-Doom shooter arrived late last week, and made quite the change from shepherding around tiny armies in that bizarre glut of real-time-strategy games which have marched onto our hard drives this month. 4A's sci-fi/horror FPS is arguably the biggest-budget, highest profile Russian/Ukranian game to date, a real break from the eyes-bigger-than-their-stomach fare we're used to from that neck of the woods - which makes…

Metro 2033 Is Preparing For Departure

Metro 2033 is out at the end of this week. Who knew March was the month for games? Dragon Age: Awakening, this, Just Cause 2... It's like it's November or something. So to celebrate its arrival there is of course a launch trailer, which in this case acts as a sort of best-of compilation of clips, finally reaching some in-game footage toward the end. Shooting!…
