Metro: Last Light Live Action Trailer Goes Boom

For whatever reason, the gaming industry's become obsessed with live-action adaptations lately. I don't claim to understand it, but in the grand scheme of these things - which ranges from the rather impressive Ghost Recon Alpha to the, well, very, very silly Dragon Age: Redemption series - Metro: Last Light's tiny, stream-powered screen debut is actually pretty great. Even better, it's not a million years long like the above examples, so you can watch it without fear of glancing up only to see the smoking, much-grayer-than-you-remember-it ruins of your own civilization mournfully resting in front of you. Without spoiling too much, I'll just say that it's rather intense - even if the "It's the end of the world everyone FREAK OUT" scene has definitely been done before. Heat up some popcorn until it's nothing more than a charred, butter-flavored crater and check out the full trailer after the break.

Metro was recently pushed to early 2013, and - to make matters worse - THQ's been on incredibly shaky financial ground as of late. On the upside, Metro's set to succeed Darksiders II as the ailing publisher's next promotional darling. So, worse comes to worst, it'll likely be the last to go. For now, though, how about we just hope everyone makes it out in one piece? I'd really prefer not to think about any more studio closures today if that's OK with everyone else.
