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

What it’s like to manage a gaming community on fire

The CM role is simple: be a plebeian, embed yourself in the community, serve as liaison between publisher and community, and most importantly, stay optimistic. Developers behind the scenes cook up controversial mechanics or balance changes, and the community managers field the fallout. In the moment, when a community is on fire, part of the citizenship is going to pour on gasoline, and it’s the community managers who get burned. If the server crashes while you’re fighting monsters you’re gonna c

What did you play last week?

Tom Hatfield played Six Ages, a fantasy clan management sim that's also kind of a text adventure. Andy Kelly played The Fisherman: The Fishing Planet, a fishing sim that I'm sure the ad copy has already said has "depth". What it's also got are other players, sharing the same lakes as everybody chills out and reels in catch after catch. I've never played any of the Fishing Planet games, so the idea of basically a fishing MMO sounds wild to me. Its ending had me glued to the screen, but then that'

In Disco Elysium, with enough points in Inland Empire you can talk to everything from a mailbox to your own necktie. This is just the kind of thing that happens in Disco Elysium. It's exaggerated to suit your situation as one troubled individual, but there's truth to it.

Do you bother with evil playthroughs?

The goal was to be good, but that meant the option to do evil had to be there as well. Do you bother with evil playthroughs? But while I usually play as a good or at least not evil character, I love reading stories on how games react to your bad behaviors. Great characters can turn my bad character good, basically. It's always fun when the character I'm playing is actually getting some of their own character development along the way.
