Video game trailers can be crass, they can be dumb, and they can be misleading. They can also be pretty damned cool. This trailer for Metro: Last Light is pretty damned cool.
Metro: Last Light is a survivor. Not only did it suffer multiple delays, but it also managed to get through its publisher's unfortunate closure unscathed. The result is an excellent, albeit slightly troubled, first-person horror shooter.
I got to play about an hour and a half of Metro: Last Light at PAX East this weekend. What I played felt like two different games.
The moody, gritty PC/PS3/Xbox 360 shooter Metro: Last Light was supposed to come out in early 2013, which is probably why ads for it started showing up atop New York City taxi cabs many weeks ago. Then Metro's publisher, THQ fell apart. Metro will eventually be released by new publisher Deep Silver. For now, it's…
Oles Shishkovtsov, from Metro developers 4A Games, delivered a short-but-interesting verdict on Nintendo's new console recently when he said "[The] Wii U has a horrible, slow CPU."
4A Games' Metro: Last Light is coming to the 360, PS3 and PC. It won't, however, be coming to the Wii U, because its developers say they are far from impressed with the new console.
It's kind of faded into the background now that most people like to focus their anger on downloadable content, but for me, multiplayer has always been the biggest problem with modern, big-budget video games.
Metro: Last Light's newest trailer is actually two minutes of gameplay, and it's a well-chosen two minutes. Most of the dialogue is in Russian, but the atmosphere makes up for what you might be missing in the words being said.
They call it their flawed masterpiece.
Best Video Games Of The Year lists are good for fomenting argument. But maybe they can also give an overlooked game another chance for attention. Here's one man sticking up for Metro 2033, and sticking up for it... interestingly.
4A Games and THQ would like everyone to know that their upcoming post-apocalyptic shooter Metro 2033 will feature "the most advanced DX11 techniques yet seen" on your PC.
At the rate video games are going, the future Russia is in danger of becoming stereotyped as some Chernobyl-like irradiated, mutant filled wasteland.
The announcement trailer for THQ and 4A Games' post-apocalyptic shooter Metro 2033 sets the stage for what could very well be mankind's last stand.
