    They had a preview write up on this in the latest PC Gamer.
    Looked interesting and the devs said they were going to fix some of the problems that the first Metro had.

    Liked the little things in it (wiping blood/water off the mask) and the general atmosphere. Hopefully it has the same feel when it's released.

    I made it through all diff modes of Metro 2033 without buying anything. It had more to do with the military grade ammo being more useful as actual ammo than currency. This left me somewhat disappointed. I never felt safe buying even armor because being as the stock ammo was horrid when the going got tough, I didn't want to spend the scant amounts of mil grade stuff I stumbled upon. I also didn't like how the creature animations were a bit slow and unrealistically robotic. Other than that, the Biomass level was horribly optimized.

    It appears they've listened and addressed at least a couple of these issues. The stock ammo seems more potent now and the creatures seem more fluid and detailed. I have to agree with the PC Gamer article on some scenes though, more schlock than shock. Amusing but accurate. As they said though, we won't know until we actually get our hands on it how good a game it is overall.

    They went a bit overboard with the motion blur again.

    On characters, the enemy, etc. It looks horrible. They need to tone it down by at least half. I think the way they use motion blur is pretty good, it's just a bit too much. Everything in the environments looks good.
    Lionheart says thanks.

    yea first thing i did int Metro 2033 was turn off their Depth of Field that was horrible optimized and made a huge impact on visuals looking cleaner

    right now

    Motion Blur + Depth of Field blurs shit, add in AAA which is much like FXAA or MLAA also causes bluring now add a Mask that also has a very small amount of bluring its just way to much blur lol

    The gameplay looks great. I wanted the game to be just a little more life-like. They certainly delivered with some new animations like the facemask wiping and whatnot. Whoever liked 2033 will love Last Light, cuz I know I will. But I hate waiting so long for it to drop!! :banghead:
    And regarding the motion blur, I just wish they took it out altogether. Just horrible and does nothing positive for the game. I love that you at least have the option of turning it off, otherwise there would've been some pissed off gamers at 4A I can tell ya that!

    Should we boycott Metro until he changes to another brand?

    Haha, because my wife for it for me for an anniversary present. I bought one of those Korean monitor, but it was total garbage, broken and never worked. So now I'm left with what I have until I can afford something else.

    Edit: maybe I'll remove the Acer from my system specs so people dont notice ;)

    I never did like the way Metro 2033 makes you pick graphics options as a set vs piecemeal. You'd think in a game with such detailed graphics they'd let you pick and choose. At least you can do some creative file editing though, such as retaining Very High textures without that horrid blur, among other things.

    On another note, I still think Artyom is one of the coolest video game protagonist names of all time. Anyone agree?

    Can you state you reasoning behind why you think so? I don't think I have a favorite protagonist. I can tell you my favorite games and why, and metro 2033 was great. The story was one of the best I have seen in a game, its atmosphere was superb, and the graphics would of been good if I had a computer that could play them at the time.

    Playing first one again XD

    Hopefully I don't get stuck this time ( couldn't find a way to progress further)



    How do I go about switching of actor blur? It looks like monsters and people are glitching rather than being blurred to me : /

    Let me first say that I advise you make a folder in the game directory called Default user.cfg, and copy and paste that file in there. Then you can easily replace the edited one should you make some errors in editing.

    In user.cfg do an Edit\Find search for blur. You're looking for r_deblur_dist (and sick_mblur if you don't want the blur that shows when you're sick). Change their values to 0, like this: r_deblur_dist 00. and sick_mblur 0. . Don't worry about r_local_mblur_coef, it won't have any effect because you will have basically turned blur off.

    If you want Very High textures just set the game to Very High before doing the file edit.

    @James,
    I was merely talking about the name Artyom being used for a protagonist, not him being my favorite protagonist himself. I just like the name that's all.
    pantherx12 and james888 say thanks.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. It is a pretty cool name I guess. A bit different sounding to me. I guess since it is russian.

    I think you can still get Metro 2033 for like $4.99 on Steam's Summer Sale. Don't remember if it was yesterday or still running today, do yourself a favor and check, because I can't :p
