Milos, the Ranger Commander joined Oct 20, 2010

Greetings, stranger. Welcome to my page. I am Ori'verda AKA Milos and I currently live in the Netherlands. I like games, girls, books, movies and teamwork. Also I enjoy discussing about religion, politics, history and such affairs. And ignore the fact that a lot of my groups are Science-Fiction related, I love Sci-Fi for good reasons! ☢ ☢ ☢ P.S. The video with the redhead is not porn! I may be a crazy Serbian but I'm not that crazy. Besides that I'm a goof, in fact to show you I am going to fill up the my description with random banter, why? Yeah you guessed it, I'm not that strange or weird it is in fact to get a HTML code to work, if you don't know what that is good luck. Regardless I suppose I should continue filling out this description field according to that manual so I can get a cooler description, I don't know if that makes sense to you but according to the manual it works so it must work right? Well it should otherwise you would not be seeing this... Or would you? SRB FTW!

So I've been playing Metro 2033 which is why the Serbian eagle has been replaced with a Russian one (sorry no comparable eagle like the Serbian one) and I have to say, it may very well be the best Russian game there is. When I loaded it up I changed it so I have English subs with Russian language and its killing me that I have no clue what people are saying, so I changed it to English only to find out that it sounds horrible, back to Russian!

Switched off the crosshairs, hints and all that nonsense. Easy is for pussies comrade!

The game is quite difficult and I see a hint of Arma and RPG elements in it, darn all those buttons and numbers you have to remember!

But the key selling point is the story. In Capitalist America, you shoot everything! In Apocalyptic Russia there are mutants that don't want to kill you... What?

And then there's the Fourth Reich and Soviet Reunion killing each other and people, as you know the game takes place underground in the Russian Metro system because some Nuclear Weapons made the surface deadly, anyway I love the fact that the Stations where you hop out of a train have become underground city states. If they ever turned the game into an RTS you would probably lead a Station and have to make alliances with others, deal with bandits and mutants and so on.

Its a lovely game, I was wondering which to get. Dead Space 2 or Metro 2033 and I choose the right game (primarily because DS2 is 3rd Person) I just hope that Metro can give me a good scare just like DS.

The sound is just amazing, I just love it when you are exploring on your own and that creepy sound starts that gives you the feeling you are being chased. At first you ignore it and continue exploring but a bit more alert to your surroundings so nothing scares you, then as time passes on alertness becomes a slight madness and you rush for the exit.

Then there are those moments when you have to escape and you turn back for a glance and see a ravenous horde approaching, in this game all enemies are tough and there are no exceptions... Unless you bring a big gun.

Well I'm off to slay some oversized tunnel rats. Remember, there is no need to fear the future...

I just recently beat Metro 2033 myself. I played it on hardcore on my first run and I found it adequately challenging :D. The atmosphere is truly unlike any other!

I tried playing it with the Russian language for maximum immersion but I just couldn't keep up with the English texting. Not only was there a lot of things missing that hadn't been translated (like background chatter or non vital information from some NPCs) but it was also hard for me to follow instructions mid-battle! In the end I had to settle with the English language, although the accents made it a bit... silly.

Have you read the book? It is absolutely brilliant (even more so than the game) and if you haven't I suggest you pick it up! :)

It gets hard but therefore I live with the Ranger code at heart "If its hostile, you kill it." but it does ruin the background things I agree. And yes... The accents take away from the overall awesome.

I'll give the book a go if the game delivers and once I finish the books I am currently reading.

I play Normal as I said and had some hardship getting my head into it, all mutants are tough and I cannot imagine getting charged by more then one alone on Hardcore, might give it a go afterwards or if I really feel like a hero midgame.

The game wasn't scary at all, completed it all with just stealth by the way. ****** impossible, took me damn weeks to complete, but totally worth it.
