Metro 2003 The Last Refuge (Ps3, Xbox360, PC)


Ah!, The Moscow shelter, the largest anti-nuclear shelter ever built by man, hermetic lock, the world lies in ruins following a nuclear holocaust. Survivors attacked by animals, young man sent to get help, the survival of the fittest......fate of humanity rests on his shoulders.......

Based on the Russian author Dmitriy Glukhovskiy's Metro 2033, 4A studios have announced this 3D horror/action/survival FPS with elements of RPG (safe bet that), in development for ps3, Xbox360 and PC. You'd be forgiven for thinking they've reworked the plot of 1997 game release Fallout, However........... it get's better

Players will have to face different ranges of political regimes, fight with dangerous enemies, new intelligent life forms, explore enigmatic and familiar environments and their laws (groupings and their interrelations, fractions animosity and trade, anomalies and enemies with extraordinary abilities) . Phew! they had me worried, okay sign me up......

The Elderly said...

my optimism knows no ends, till the first review is finished that is.. (crosses fingers and toes)

gnome said...

(looks at toes. Impressed, as they are quite crossed)

The best subway in the world...

The Elderly said...

what you were there? in Moscow? what was...... (an hour later) please tell me.

I dated a female Russian army medic for a brief 7 days.... rugged.....

gnome said...

Never dated any Russians in Moscow, but it was definitely an amazing city. Stayed there for 5 days... really amazing...

Leningrad.. oops Petersburg... on the other had was quite different... lots of nice (ridiculously cheap) bars...

The Elderly said...

i've got this notion that the Russians love their get togethers every bit as much as the greeks and the irish, they just get so forlorn afterwards...... course we didn't suffer a history like theirs either..... good reason to be forlorn......

gnome said...

Great people... Fun too... Forlorn.. perhaps...

The Elderly said...

Salt of the earth...... maybe we could all move into the same country, we'd get on like a house on fire...

lets see....... venezuala looks nice..... barbados.....too small

gnome said...

Africa would be too hot... Uhm... Finland?

The Elderly said...

too cold, but loads of blondes..... let's see........ Monaco...... too small?

gnome said...

They do got a nice F1 race there... still..to small... Australia? Nope..it's been done...

Uhm...

The Elderly said...

lol

Uhm.... let's see....... Papua New guineau, we could increase the land mass by dumping tons of land mass dumping material all around it.....

gnome said...

Land mass materia which we will find in ... ?

The Elderly said...

....... ah....... a land mass storage facility of course......you know that place where all the empty coke cans go?

gnome said...

not really.... Isn't it a waste disposal place or something?

The Elderly said...

no i'ts like a heaven for rubbish.... if you've been a good coke can and given people pleasure then you get sent to this place..... like old socks and jumpers end up there.....

or maybe i was just dreaming it..... but it's extremely likely that rubbish has a heaven....and it's that material we should use for land mass...

(realising he hasn't a clue what he's talking about, elderly puts on the kettle)

gnome said...

(gnome sits on kettle and acts all surreal)

Never knew such a magnificent place existed... Amazing. Amazing.

Let's use what's to be used then...

The Elderly said...

(puts down phone after 3 days of negotiating to transport land mass material. Turns to Gnome)

Phew!... right how's negotiations going with papua new guinea?

gnome said...

They are acting all tough but right after I mentioned Iraq they started behaving. On with the plans...

The Elderly said...

Right we'll need to contact the press, tell them people will have to evacuate their home countries by, will we say December 11th... that'll give em a chance to wrap up loose ends..... now buildings,

the building projects are due to start in two weeks.. how many people are on site?

gnome said...

Not many, but it doesn't really matter. They are neither Aryan, neither European nor American...

We shouldn't face any UN problems...

December 11th seems fine...

The Elderly said...

damn, next on my list is law and order... we'll have to have our own police force.... damn..... uniforms.... what about lavender..

gnome said...

No please. N cops. Can't really stand them...

;)

The Elderly said...

no cops, how are we going to keep law and order.. I hope your not suggesting that mature adults, with strong community ties... will have the intelligence to police themselves... i hope
