Lol, yes, I know how the charger works in these games. The player flashlight cast shadows but they are BS shadows that dont behave realistically. Honestly we have had better shadows from player light sources for 15 years+. Check it out for yourself.

What an absolutely fantastic game. Totally worth the price of admission. Loved everything about it. Even the bad ending. Steam says 18 hours played. I would guess maybe 16/17. I think I left the game running at some point.

One thing I really don't like about this series is lack of continuity in first game Artyom mentioned he didn't remember life before the Metro, but in Last Light he said he did and near the end he did remembers everything before the bomb fell.

Worse of all there are no Dark Ones in Exodus AT ALL. Not even a whisper. One more thing, I thought they have a kid back in the last part of Last Light, or am I mistaken?

No, no kid. That must have been something else. As for the dark ones, the canon is they were nuked, however that also doesn't follow the plotline as there is no evidence of the nuke damage.

That was the storyline for Last Light, it ignored the good ending of the first game and assumed you destroyed them. But they still exist in Last Light. You even had to save one of their kids in Last Light. And he rejoins his group, but i think there's also a snippet somewhere in the end of Last Light where it states they will leave humanity for now, but return at a later date. Probably in Metro 4 or 5.


Also are we using spoilers for Last Light? I'm pretty sure most of us played it and know what it's about.

Gay just buy it already. All you're doing is wasting time out of your day thinking about it and wasting time you could be enjoying it. There will be more games.

Think of it this way, how much money could you have earned had you worked the time you have wasted looking at them and thinking about buying one? Bet it would have been enough to pay for more than one of them.

So I played through one of the endings, the good one, and it looked like to me the main skill or only skill used in the "boss" fight that happens before the ending videos is key mashing.

That's not to put down the Dead City region or most of the game. There's an area a few hundred meters long in the middle of the Dead City area where you can take off your mask. Which makes me quite happy because the graphics are way more sharper and cleaner without the mask.

Ok now this post is turning into too long mode. But come on I have to bring to your attention about looking for an answer to a question unless it got mentioned before. Why does the middle area of the Dead City region have such low levels of radiation that you don't even need the gas mask?

It doesn't seem to fit with realism. It's like a magical very low radiation zone in the middle of a contaminated region. Could it be the devs wanted to show off at least some of the visuals of the Dead City in a nice in-focus manner? If so that's fine with me and I'll wait for a user mod that let's you go around everywhere without wearing a mask.

Which region are you talking about? The only place that you could take off mask was the tunnels.

It's in the middle area of the tunnels (for the no mask part.) In the first part of the tunnels the mask is needed which annoyed me. Then in the middle I was all happy faced to play with no mask. Then turned sad faced when it said to put the mask back on in the later areas of the tunnels (in the Dead City.)

And with that I just have to go on a rant. Look it, it's not likely the devs would let you take off your mask in all of the tunnels and they don't. Ok let's suppose for the sake of this conversation they let you take off your mask as soon as you enter the tunnels/interior in the Dead City after the long truck drive and walk outdoors with the mask.

I bet you guys would think it really odd if you could suddenly take off your mask just because you went indoors after all that walking/running in a significantly contaminated area. It would've been a too obvious change in realism. So imho the devs may have sort of sneaked in a segment of tunnels where the mask is not needed. And that's in the middle part of the tunnels. And that's where they can showcase these very cool looking interiors even more by letting you see it clearly without the mask.

Edit - forgot someone can just say the middle area of the tunnels is protected from any serious radiation by more walls and such than near the outer areas next to the outside. Well that assumes the roof areas are still intact. If it has some little holes from the war then you're are probably radiated dead unless the middle tunnels are several floors below. But we don't know if there's just the roof above or if there are 1, 2 or 3 or however many floors above you providing protection in those tunnels.

Oh and don't forget to close the doors behind you when you enter the clean middle section of the tunnels. Ha got you there. That could be the downfall of anyone arguing that's it's expected that you can roam in the middle areas of the tunnels without a mask. Unless there's going to be a debate about how quickly can you open and close a door between a high radiation area and very low radiation area and not let in enough radiation to kill you. Have at it. And don't bring up the possibility of decontamination buffer rooms. I didn't see any of those bordering the middle section of the tunnels.

So a recap to make this more understandable is mask on during the truck drive and walk/run. Mask still on at early parts of tunnels/interiors. No mask in middle of tunnels/interiors. And mask on in later parts of tunnels/interiors. Mask on in boss fight outdoors. Then the long end video.

Edit - this is all when the ending is the good one. If what I said about the mask is changed in any way when the ending is the bad one I wouldn't know at this point. Haven't played the Dead City with the bad ending. And maybe there's another place I missed where you don't need the mask as Nunz was indicating.

Middle of tunnels does not require the mask similar to other Metro games since they were in a tunnel bunker sort of a thing just like the previous 2 metro games which had intermittent usage of masks.

About the radiation realism. Man it’s a video game. They let you wipe your mask to portray realism. Next thing you would want to watch is Artyom taking a dump.

Great game. With a 2080 and a gysnc monitor it was just amazing. Average 80 to 100 FPS except the desert where I'd drop to 50 at times. Playing with everything maxed.

So incredible, one of the best looking games I've ever played. Jesus, driving in the last mission was jaw dropping. Maybe BF5 looked as good but had a limited SP which did not draw me in.

There were some poor graphics, mostly poor texture blending.. (I don't know what to call it) when a wall meets the floor. Story was fun and engaging.
