Metro 2033 Diaries Part Ten
GameOn Magazine|Issue 130 - August 2020
Andrew discovers the secrets of D6.
Andrew Duncan

This is my ongoing exploration of the Metro games, played in release order. I will chronicle my playthrough of each title in turn and discuss any recurring themes and noteworthy events. This time I continue Metro 2033 Redux.

Having made my way to Polis and been denied aid, Miller helped me reach a nearby library to try and find some information on the D6 missile base instead…

There was no doubt now that I was in the basement, and from the looks of things heading for the sewers. I slowly made my way through the area, avoiding the two librarians even as one of them went away. I was crouching, and intended on remaining crouched unless I needed to run.

In the next area, a librarian was trying to grab a nosalis that had invaded the area, so I just avoided it and made my way up and around an elaborate series of planks and pipes, to a staircase. Into a ventilation area, a librarian knocked through a grating to try and grab me, probably assuming I was a mutant because it quickly stopped grasping and allowed me on my way.

Down another metal staircase, I had to drop and very carefully navigate my way around a series of sleeping librarians. They must have been using this area exclusively as a sleeping zone, because I passed by multiple snoozing librarians, and much to my surprise I didn’t step on any or shoot them by mistake.

Eventually, I found myself back inside a building, which I hoped was still the library. I knew it was big, but I also didn’t know exactly how far I had traveled. Luckily, it just so happened that I was in the exact place I needed to be! After looking through several drawers in a filing room and flinging random bits on the floor, a big red folder in a drawer labeled D6 was perhaps a bit more on the nose than I expected it to be. Within minutes, I was outside once more.

Back4 Blood Review

Shredding through hordes of the undead whilst The Hive blared out of the jukebox in the background, that’s when I knew I was sold on Back 4 Blood. There were plenty of valid concerns before the game's release, ranging from Turtle Rock’s failure with Evolve, to worries about the in-game card mechanic potentially being used as a bridge towards in-game purchases.

Aragami 2 Review

Like most people who were born in the 1980s, I have always been a big fan of ninjas. Running along rooftops and throwing shuriken at people just never looks uncool. There have been a number of third-person games where you play as a ninja over the years, including the original Aragami, which cast you as an undead assassin with shadow powers.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits Review

Come for the graphics, stay for the graphics, and if the graphics alone aren’t enough for you, then Kena: Bridge of Spirits isn’t for you. This is a decent first game from Ember Lab, a studio only previously known for its work in animation. However, it is clear to see why this game is only priced at £32.99 and wasn’t heavily marketed at all by Sony in the build up to release.

Phantom Abyss Preview

It goes without saying that Devolver Digital has had a pretty good deal of success with Fall Guys. The unique “survival of the fittest'' gameplay style was something very new and it captured the hearts of millions when the indie publisher unleashed it on the world. Their upcoming release, Team WIBY’s debut title Phantom Abyss, has a lot of that same ethos, but played out in a very different way.

Alexei Navalny, claroscuros de una vida en la oposición

Alexei Navalny, el hombre encarcelado en Moscú por su oposición al presidente de Rusia, es conocido en Occidente como un líder nato que lucha, aun a costa de su vida, contra un gobierno que él considera una dictadura; y ha pasado la mitad de su vida haciéndolo, metódicamente. Pero ese es sólo un lado de la biografía de este personaje. El otro es el de un ultranacionalista, antimusulmán, intransigente y voluntarioso… como lo describen incluso sus aliados.
