The next Ace Attorney game, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Dual Destinies, is coming to North America and Europe this fall as a downloadable title. We went hands-on with The Bureau: XCOM Declassified and think it's a refreshing spin on the franchise that still remains true to its roots. Precursor Games took the crowdfunding campaign for Shadow of the Eternals to Kickstarter. Watch Dogs' lead story designer weighs in on the role of surveillance and social networks. Our Metro: Last Light review points out a few technical hiccups with the game but details an experience worth having in spite of them.

The latest Metro: Last Light trailer, titled "Redemption," features the Spartan Order of Rangers' top sniper, Anna, as she talks about the tribulations and responsibility that weighs on protagonists Artyom's shoulders.
The video also showcases human versus human gunfights, and a number of mutated animals and humans who infest the tunnels of the Metro and slaughter human survivors.
Dmitry A. Glukhovsky wrote Metro 2033 in the ‘90s. The novel was eventually published a number of years later in 2005 and was followed by its sequel, Metro 2034, in 2009.
Glukhovsky has been working with 4A Games on Last Light, which is a sequel to 2010's Metro 2033 video game; however, Last Light is a standalone story to that of the novel titled Metro 2034.

The third and final "Ranger Survival Guide" trailer for Metro: Last Light is all about the tools would-be adventurers possess for survival and combat.
Two of the most precious resources available to prospective rangers are air and light. The air on the surface and in the transition zones is still toxic as a result of nuclear war, so venturing forth without a gas mask is fatal. Even then, filters only last a limited amount of time before they must be replaced. A lack of light in the metro tunnels is less immediately lethal, but it is still a crucial resource that must be expended with care. The ranger's watch also serves as an indicator of whether a player is concealed in shadow or in enough light to be exposed, so players will need to keep an eye on it.
Intact pre-war weapons are a...
A new survival guide trailer for the upcoming postapocalyptic shooter Metro: Last Light is all about the enemies you'll encounter in the Metro, and how to take them on.
This trailer elaborates on the first episode of the three-part survival guide, further distinguishing between different groups of humans players will have to contend with in the subway tunnels of Russia. There are three primary human factions, each devoted to a particular ideology on an extremist level: Nazi-esque fascism, classic Soviet communism, and Western-style capitalism. Beyond the three major factions, there are roving gangs of bandits in the Metro, and their bullets are just as lethal.
The trailer stresses that ammunition is scarce in the Metro and that it's always better to try and get an advantage on foes...
A new trailer for 4A Games' postapocalyptic Metro: Last Light teaches would-be Rangers about the various dangers lurking below — and above — the ground of nuclear-war-ravaged Russia.
The world of Metro: Last Light is divided into three regions: The Metro itself, the irradiated surface, and the transition zones in-between. As the video shows, the biggest danger inside the winding Metro tunnels comes from other humans. Once one begins to travel to the surface, however, other threats begin to rear their mutated heads.
According to the video, Rangers must listen in on conversations for tips and information about the world around them in order to have the best chance of survival.
Metro: Last Light will hit PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC on May 14.
As this trailer reminds us, the world of Metro: Last Light is not a happy one.
Not only are those living a new subterranean existence forced to scrounge and fight for scarce resources in order to survive, but there are always those who seek power at the expense of others. Jackbooted thugs are jackbooted thugs whether above or below the surface.
Metro: Last Light is out this May on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
