Just wanted to highlight the difference between two “busts” of zombified women from two zombie-centric video games. Left is Dead Island from Deep Silver and right is The Last of Us from Naughty Dog. 

Pretty stunning how they contrast considering they are both kind of the same thing. Ignoring the fact that obviously quality difference between one is mass produced as a promo item and the other is a one off commission, but just note how Dead Island’s is literally the torso of a woman with no head, poor breast anatomy (and anatomy in general) just to appeal to male gaze. Even in death a woman’s body must above all be sexy. 

And the opposite for TLoU, the top is a top you’d see on any person, the head (what’s left of it after infection) is entirely there. The anatomy is spot on the skin is gross the whole thing is legitimately grotesque as it should be. 

It just shows two really disparate attitudes to women and their own video game if you ask me. Just wanted to save this for myself to remember vov

Metro: Last Light, Bastard Assault Rifle 

-4A Games doesn’t get enough credit for the insane conditions they made Metro 2033 and Last Light under. Read about how they made these games by sneaking in dev kits and sitting on folding chairs in an office that lost power all the time. Crazy. 

Even crazier, this game has better reloading animations than most other shooters. The Bastard AR is a great example. It looks so mechanical and utilitarian. It is just a broken up gun with a clip stuck in it. The gun is usually considered a last resort by many and it is far from accurate. But look at that reload and firing animation. So great. 


Deep Silver and 4A Games have officially announced Metro Redux, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this summer.

Metro Redux includes Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux, both remastered in 1080p (Update: 900p on Xbox One) at 60 frames per second with improvements to gameplay, AI, and gunplay, as well.

The games will be available together in a $49.99 retail package, or separately as $24.99 digital downloads.
