Remember that teaser trailer hinting at the live action trailer for Metro: Last Light? That creepy blip of footage was just a prelude for the much longer and even creepier version. THQ popped it out and shows us just how they imagine the end of world looked for the poor citizenry of Russia. Chaos is the theme here as folks rush towards the safety of the Metro lines as nuclear missiles decorate the daytime sky. People screaming in desperation, children crying, dogs barking – I dare you to watch it without getting a chill.
Prepare to Enter the Metro when Metro: Last Light drops for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime Q1 of 2013.

THQ is getting the hype machine in full gear for their soon to be released sequel to Metro 2033 – Metro: Last Light. First up is teaser video for the live action trailer blasting your eyeballs this Thursday. The very brief 26 second video shows distraught citizens, a lone metro guard and plenty of emptiness. The tagline is “Enter the Metro” so I’m pretty sure those upset folks charge down and scare the crap out of that poor sentry. The audio makes me thing of something Morticia Addams might sing to Wednesday as she drifts off into dream land. Kinda creepy really.
The Metro: Last Light world premiere trailer, Enter the Metro, is hitting the world on May 24th, 11 a.m. EST. Hopefully we’ll get to see more info on the game itself as well as more of the creepy people freaking out and going underground.
If you forgot or didn’t get around to it, Metro 2033 was a hybrid FPS\Survival Horror game set in a post-apocalyptic Moscow. Players spend a good deal of time fighting for their lives against a mutant species referred to as the “Dark Ones”, usually in the cramped confines of the metro lines. Like many survival horror games, ammo is scare and must be scavenged or made. Another popular aspect from recent games, the morality system, made an appearance as well. The game received plenty of positive reviews and gained quite a following among players. The sequel is set to come on tentatively in the first quarter of 2013.
Hit the jump and check out the footage. Once you’re done, hit up the Metro website and watch the countdown clock or signup for updates. Make sure to stayed tuned for the full video release in just over 2.5 days!
Russian photographers reach new, deathly heights – literally, in Sky Walking

In the West we are very content with our memes and our photoshopped images of cats, void of the fear that one wrong move and we will fall to our untimely deaths. However in Russia a new craze is sweeping the nations young photographers. A craze which is as insane as it is impressive. Called “Sky Walking” (no Star Wars jokes here) it involves climbing vertigo-inducing heights in order to capture not only the photographer but also the enormous expanse of space behind them. Although this is the type of thing that could only happen in Mother Russia, it does make for some truly remarkable images.
One particular sky walker , Marat Dupri aged 19, told British newspaper The Daily Mail about his Sky Walking experiences:
“When I am on the roof I have a feeling that the whole world is by my feet…All my problems and trouble are left somewhere down. The height exhilarates me. I am enjoying with my hometown views. It gives me energy and fills me with enthusiasm to make new and great shots”
After the jump is a video of some of these Sky Walkers, giving you an idea of how far, or rather how high,these budding photographers are willing to go for the perfect shot. Other course it would be best to recommend that you do not try this because the last thing you want to do is slip and drop your camera. Or fall off.
