Metro Exodus is bigger than 2033 and Last Light combined

4A Games has said previously that Metro Exodus will be more open than the previous games in the Metro series, but it won't be a completely open world like that of Stalker. For one thing, individual levels in Exodus will be much larger than anything seen in the previous games. The biggest outdoor level in Last Light was roughly "200 meters to 100 meters," Prokhorov said,. That means everything from weapons, attachments, and other loot, to "frozen stories" that reveal more about the game world and

The Doom Slayer’s bedroom: An analysis

I thought I knew the Doom Slayer. So, in the interest of learning more about the man stuffed into that armour, let's take a closer look at the Doom Slayer's bedroom. This makes perfect sense: the Doom Slayer is absolutely a man who would own multiple swords. Of course the Doom Slayer has guitars displayed on his wall: of course he does. Obviously Doom would be on there if he didn't currently exist within the Doom universe.

I formed a labor union in Frostpunk: The Last Autumn, and they immediately fired my ass

There are a lot ways for your citizens to die in survival sim Frostpunk: The Last Autumn, the follow-up to one of 2018's best games. Don't get me wrong: I love my little Frostpunk citizens, too. It's a more palpable hate than I've experienced for tiny AI-controlled people in pretty much any other game I've ever played. (Image credit: 11 Bit Studios)As in the original Frostpunk, in The Last Autumn I pretty quickly slide into fascism. (Image credit: 11 Bit Studios)I pass a law that there must be a

This 1TB NVMe drive is just $130 and comes with a $20 Newegg gift card

Temtem’s Early Access launch suffers from bugs and server disconnects

It turns out that 'Pokémon, but an MMO on PC' is an attractive pitch: At the time of writing, I'm around 14,000th in the queue to connect to monster battling MMO Temtem, which launched in Early Access today. The queue was much smaller right after launch, but it quickly became clear why spots were freeing up: frequent server disconnects. Getting lots of attention from streamers would normally be great for a launch, but in Temtem's case they all appear to be suffering from the same server disconne
