Metro Exodus

#3
Metro: Exodus publisher pulled the game off Steam shelves just before release, even tho peeps had pre-purchased it on steam. Steam is not impressed. Have to buy now thru Epic/Tencent

I should probably hide that, sorry ulti. Given convo's in shoutbox I don't know what our stance is on that stuff D:

Game has glitches. Fer instance when surprise jumped by mutants your shotty is pretty much the weapon of choice right then so you go to pull up it from your arsenal where it was at the last save, and guess what it's disappeared - so the mutant happily tea-bags your carcass. Quit and reload fixes it, but sometimes need to do it a couple of times :droid:

Interesting, sounds like poor saving methods; when re-spawning, perhaps try rebinding the weapons to slots as a matter of habit?

Problem has resolved itself and was only happening at one choke point. Haven't played any Metro titles before this so it's a steep learning curve. Although it claims to be 'open world', it is not strictly so. The game is set in wide open spaces, but if you deviate from the obvious path by much there are plenty of random mutant creatures to take you out and all ammo is wasted - so it is still basically a linear game. But it looks beautiful (as much as a post-apocalyptic world can look beautiful) and the train stuff effing rocks.

Well that's a shame, would prefer signs/minefields/invis walls to that, especially if its not so obvious till you waste stuff.

Highly recommend playing the first two, remaster editions offer a smoother transition from 2033 to Last Light, they are both solid linear with a good mix of plot and action/stealth.

Cheers. Also an update on 'open world'. As your character progresses you naturally 'find' improved mods for your arsenal. So now with the assault rifle + large mag + telescopic sights + noise suppressor + laser the beasties can be cleared from an area you need to cross by sniping from a high spot. Still takes 3 or 4 headshots to drop one tho. But the areas of high radioactivity are no go and there is water everywhere - forget swimming coz your character can't and there are even worse things in the water than on land - bit like a cross between a whale, a croc and a lobster that can spit radioactive gob at you from the waters edge as well ...

You would think someone would check shiz like this before it's released. There are other spots where there aint no wheels at all and carriages just float above the rails heh
