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

Tim Schafer: ‘I don’t think I’ve made my best game yet’

Image source: BAFTATim Schafer has made some pretty great games over the years, like Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, and Psychonauts. He was also recently awarded a BAFTA Fellowship, a lifetime achievement award and "the highest accolade BAFTA can bestow up an individual." "This sort of award feels like something you get when you're done, but I still feel like I'm working towards figuring out how to make games. "I don't think I've made my best game yet, and I feel like that's

The Crusader Kings board game brings the medieval soap opera to your tabletop

Crusader Kings, everyone’s favorite medieval dating, plague, and war simulator, is coming to the tabletop. Like the video game, much of Crusader Kings was about diplomacy, bartering, and alliances. It’s very much the kind of story engine that fans of Crusader Kings on PC will enjoy. That said, it’s very much the kind of story engine that fans of Crusader Kings on PC will enjoy. In just a handful of plays of the game I’d seen the kinds of stories that you play dozens of hours of the PC game for.

Prime Mover is a new puzzle game about building circuit boards

After two years of work, the small team at Norwegian developer 4Bit Games recently released Prime Mover, an open-ended puzzle game about building circuit boards that fulfill "a wide variety of logic and computer science-inspired problems." Admittedly, my experience as a computer scientist amounts to tinkering with redstone in Minecraft, but nearest I can tell Prime Mover's puzzles are about inputs, outputs and the rules that connect them. Rather than a single solution, each level has a goal, and

In the Indie GIF Showcase, we dig up the best-looking new and upcoming indie games and explore what makes them special. To put it simply, Rifter is a 2D platformer that's all about grappling hooks. Csuk points to Bionic Commando, Sonic the Hedgehog and Hotline Miami as inspirations, and the DNA of each is plain to see. We've got the satisfying arcs and momentum of Bionic Commando, the speed and verticality of Sonic games, and the vibrant art of Hotline Miami. It's a promising combination: Rifter

Death Stranding fans make a moss connection and helps confirm the game’s setting

You may have seen that Hideo Kojima recently tweeted a picture of some in-game moss from Death Stranding , teasing its upcoming appearance as a much-anticipated E3 2018 game . I'd lichen it to a revelation if this wasn't the culmination of a whole bunch of compelling data points that indicate Iceland will be a major location in Death Stranding. Remember that first trailer for the game with naked Norman Reedus on a craggy, black sand beach? All this isn't to say that Death Stranding will take pla

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery’s Microtransactions Are Making Bank

When Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery was released last month, one of the loudest criticisms from fans and in reviews of the game is that it is too heavy on microtransactions. The news that Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a top grossing game comes from app analytics firm, App Annie. As mentioned, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has come under fire repeatedly for the way that it features microtransactions. Or, the spending power of players who don’t mind Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery‘s microtrans

Classic Flash adventure The Room Tribute is still one of the best movie games on PC

I’ve watched The Room, Tommy Wiseau’s infamously terrible love triangle melodrama, more times than I can remember, such is its peculiar magic. The Disaster Artist, by the way, is an essential read—even if you’re only vaguely familiar with the movie. It’s clear from the offset that the game’s creators are genuine fans of the movie, with self-aware references and self-deprecating humour scattered throughout. As a big fan of the film I love digging around for hidden references and in-jokes, of whic

Red Dead Redemption 2: Take-Two CEO Promises No More Delays

When Red Dead Redemption 2 was initially announced by Rockstar Games, the developer had originally slated the open world western release to come out at some point during fall 2017, then spring 2018, which later saw the title get delayed further until October of this year. While these postponements may have made many wonder about the possibility of there being another holdup in RDR2‘s availability, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick promises that its current release date is here to stay. This much was
