Metro Exodus wants you to feel liberated from all those trips through the tunnels

It’s deathly quiet in the forest. Then the silence gives way to a man shouting for help. He's tied to a post and trying to fend off a ravenous wolf. A single crossbow bolt takes the feral creature out. The shirtless man pleads for my help to free him, cussing as he explains his predicament. I choose to cut him loose. “I owe you my…

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…

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…

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 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!…

All Aboard The Metro 2033

Stacks of Metro 2033 news has arrived in the last few days, so I thought I'd do a quick rundown. First up was the news that the game will be supporting DirectX 11, for which THQ released a bunch of new screenshots, one of which is above. That's some eleven, right there. Great news for that bloke I saw buying a DX11 capable card in…

Psychic Attacks And Projectile Currency

Two new videos of upcoming shooter Metro 2033 have surfaced via the omnipotent vid-tubes of GameTrailers, and I've posted them below. There's some interesting elucidation of the plot, some discussion of the interaction with NPCs, and some talking about how bullets are currency. For a closer look and some thoughts on the game from our own Mr Meer take a look at these impressions.

On Rails: Hands-On With Metro 2033

Hey! Stop that, you've got it wrong: this is not Stalker by another name. In fact, it's not Stalker to the extent that, were you to say "Is this like Stalker?" to one of the ex-Stalker developers behind it, they'd probably punch you in the the nose, walk to the top of the nearest mountain and then scream in raw fury at the skies until…

Moscow Mule-tilation: Metro 2033

The incidental detail and little flourishes of scripted events are looking like the main thing that Metro 2033 has going for it. We understand that it's all set to be a fairly traditional monster-shoot, but there's no denying the loveliness of the ruined-Moscow in which it takes place, as you can see in the trailer I've posted below. I believe we've got some detail impressions…

On The Tube: Metro 2033

After several years in development hell, it looks as if the Ukrainian shooter Metro 2033 will finally surface in "early 2010". THQ have put out another trailer, showing a little more about the world, and the challenges that the lead character, Artum, will face. It's worth mentioning that despite the post-apocalyptic theme and Ukrainian heritage this is not "another Stalker", as it's a traditional scripted…

Metro: 2033, Official Trailer

We've been following this Ukrainian shooter since the first footage appeared a couple of years ago. Metro 2033 appears to be what THQ did after the split with GSC, and it has the same dark-future apocalypse vibes as Stalker. This time it's set in a Moscow ravaged by monsters, with the survivors of the apocalypse hiding in the Russian capital's epic metro system. It's got…

Those Who Survived Tuesday? Metro 2033 Is Back

The first time I saw Metro 2033 was during Games Convention 2006 when 4A Games' "pre-alpha" footage was released. A bit of quiet for two years, and now some, um, pre-alpha footage has been released. However, if you go back and forth between the two almost shot-for-shot-the-same trailers, you can see quite how much progress has been made with their 4A Engline.
