Metro Exodus

Recommended Posts

Its been a long time since I played a heavily scripted shooter (cant even remember the last CoD game) so I am really enjoying the first few hours of it. 

 

My only two gripes are - 

 

1 Needs a Russian VO option. The heavily Russian accented VO makes it sound ridiculous. It is almost like a parody. It has been a while since I played the previous Metro games but I remember being annoyed by that then as well. 

 

2 Why does every game now need you to collect crafting items? Here is a beautiful game whose environments drip with atmosphere and all I want to do is soak in it. Let me just enjoy it. But instead I am mashing the E key to pick up crap so I can upgrade stuff. I honestly dont remember if the last two metro games had you picking up trash all over the place or not so I dont know if its a series thing but really this mechanic needs to die fast. It just absolutely kills my immersion. I had the same problem with Witcher. You made a beautiful, gorgeous world I want to be inside and every 5 seconds you keep reminding me I am playing a video game. Why?

Coz in real world, stuff breaks and you need to repair it or buy new ones, which is what they are simulating , expecting it to increase your immersion :P  It's totally another story that the stuff you pick in witcher 3 is absolutely useless as you can always get superior stuff by taking part in those special quests !

Just started the game....man the atmosphere is so awesome....still as good as 2033 and last light

Also nice to see the TLOU style crafting system being used here


 

I hope you are playing this using headphones for better experience. This game has insane background score. And some of the scene feels really scary because of in-game music  when using headphones.

Metro exodus - 2nd dlc - Sam’s story coming to PC, Xbox and PS4 on 11th Feb.

We are proud to reveal that the hotly anticipated second expansion for Metro Exodus, Sam's Story, will launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Stadia on Friday February 11 2020.

In this sandbox-survival expansion, players will forge Sam's path on his journey through Vladivostok on his mission to find his way home to the USA.

Sam has long dreamed of returning to his homeland, and maybe finding his family alive. The prospect seemed impossible in the darkened tunnels of the Metro, but when the Spartans discovered that Moscow was not the only city left alive after the war, holding out hope didn’t feel so foolish anymore.

Sam makes his way away from the Aurora in search of a way back to the USA, arriving at the remains of Vladivostok’s tsunami ravaged harbours, ruined industrial buildings, and crumbling residential districts. To complete his journey, Sam will discover that he needs every tactic he has learned so far to survive, as his surroundings prove to be far trickier than expected.

Just started playing the second dlc- this seems like a proper dlc which would “fit” in the metro exodus world with it’s semi open world area. Am liking it better than 2 colonels - just that the voice acting is crap & cheesy; further my PC has taken a huge performance hit on DX 12 post the 7.1 GB patch. Useless optimisation by 4A as earlier it was running fine, but after patch seeing lot of FPS drops

Finished the game yesterday...oh man what a final chapter.....it was so intense! Got the bad ending due to my negligence somewhere during the earlier parts of the game . ....ah well 🤷🏻‍♂️

 

Overall a really good game 

 

The only part I didn't like was

 

 

the bear fight.....man that was so stupid and the exploit to defeat the bear makes the level design look so retarded
