    Watched a video about the Metro series and it turns out the company that makes it is pretty much made up of the Ukrainians that used to make Stalker.

    It seems in the early days when there were dozens of people working there there were only three cars in the car park... one super sports car worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, a nice BMW type vehicle and an old clunker car and everyone else took the bus... the distribution of money did not in any way equate to the distribution of labour so a large portion of coders left the company and created their own.... 4C or something like that.

    They had all the Stalker stuff but needed a new game and got together with a Russian writer who wrote the story of Metro based loosely on the same stories Stalker was based on.

    Effectively they are a Ukrainian company.

    They have a new game out about an American marine who was a guard in Moscow who survived in the Metro and escaped across Russia with other members from the exodus game. The new game is about heading down to Vladivostok and taking an Akula SSBN... powering her up and sailing her home to the US to see his dad...

    The Russian Army completed its combat simulation systems started by the Germans when the Germans cut ties, so they clearly have computer programmers who can code highly detailed models of all the weapons currently used by the Russian military including vehicles and equipment as well as enemy weapons and equipment... it would be interesting to see them put out a game...

    ......

    You didn't know this???


    Also, I just read the plot on wiki and just as I said they retconed the previous games to fit their (and writer's) nu-liberal agenda. Now humanity is no longer extinct, NATO ''liberated'' most of Russia and Moscow has been kept in isolation because of Kremlin conspiracy (shocker)

    Ukrainian game start to finish, I won't be touching this crap especially now when we have more superior stuff than ever (Ace Combat alone blows Metro out of the water), hell we even have Sony porting every single PS exclusive minus Good of War and don't get me started on Microsoft releasing entire Halo series on PC
