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,.

With every new innovation in the world of robotics, it feels as though they become a little less uncanny, and the idea of society being overthrown by murderous androids feels more and more remote. At least it did - until we saw the horrifying video of a robotic snake climbing up a ladder. Created by Kyoto University and the University of Electro-Communications, the clambering robotic reptile was unveiled at the 2018 International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems in Madrid.

We pulled in top laner Yan “Letme” Jun-Ze for our Lightning Round. Our Lightning Round questions come from so many people at this point, that it’s kind of a pain to list them out. Letme: As for now, I don’t think there is one. The Rift Herald: Yep. [laughs]The Rift Herald: What’s your answer to that?
Take a stroll through any one of Assassin's Creed Odyssey's city streets and you'll be within a stone's throw of a penis. Score: 42/100While this competition is fundamentally about just the artistry in these statued ding-a-lings, this one gets some extra points for creativity. Score: 64/100This statue makes it clear that Poseidon was pretty insecure about his body. It's anatomically correct and even features a little pubic hair without making the whole thing look ghastly. Size normally doesn't m
With Fallout 76 out soon, what other single-player game to do you want to see made into an online experience?
I really feel like Fable's realm full of consequences could work with an online world. In the single-player versions of the game, your behavior could directly affect your appearance; imagine an online world where you could spot a griefer a mile off because of hideous growths. Alright, that's taking it to to an absurdity, but there are far subtler ways to integrate online experiences. However, some of those single-player experiences I mentioned did have online modes, and - while many of them were

What Remains of Edith FinchThis indie smash arrived in 2017, but as it recently won a 'best game' BAFTA award, it’s time to give it another plug.

The governor of West Virginia and the West Virginia Tourism Office announced they are partnering with Bethesda for "advertising and touring opportunities" related to Fallout 76. The West Virginia setting of Fallout 76 (albeit a post-apocalyptic version of it), is sure to draw fans to the state (if it hasn't already) to visit locations from the open world multiplayer game. They’ve really embraced West Virginia and its beauty. We believe this unique partnership has tremendous potential to bring fo
In a recent interview Flanagan spoke about making a "family horror" story, making it a rival of the best horror movie of the year so far, Hereditary. Rachel WeberWhat: The Haunting of Hill HouseWhere: NetflixWhen: October 12The 25 best horror movies on Netflix3.

Thankfully, Rockstar Games recently put out a gameplay trailer featuring plenty of shootouts, brawling, and other activities in the game’s sprawling open world.
