Metro: Last Light Developer Pack

Man, the feel good hit of the summer has been 4A Games' "Metro: Last Light," hasn't it? What's cheerier or more lighthearted than a group of scrappy Ukrainians, beset upon by harsh winter and hobbled by government corruption, releasing a tense, oppressive game set in an nightmarish, radiation-blighted hellscape, and then porting it to Mac and Linux? That's like a tall glass of lemonade.

And, man, nothing says sunshine and puppy dog tails like giant, mutated, carnivorous spiders, which exactly what we can expect to find in the "Metro: Last Light Developer Pack" DLC.

"Next-gen Art dealers" Cook & Becker have made a name for themselves as sellers of large size, high-quality video game art prints. They've showcased art from such properties as 'Mirror's Edge' and 'Killzone', though they've gotten considerably more attention with their pieces for 'Mass Effect' and 'Journey', and more recently, 'Bioshock Infinite'. So it was of little surprise that Cook & Becker would pull of a deal with Naughty Dog to become the high-end art merchant for 'The Last of Us'.  This impressive 16-piece collection consists mostly of environmental concept art, but also a few familiar character pieces.

Dragon Age: Inquisition

It pains me to admit, dear MTV Multiplayer! readers, that I have been lax in my duty to slavishly report on every crumb, every gleaned micro-detail of "Dragon Age: Inquisition," the latest (and perhaps greatest? Only time will tell.) entry in BioWare's high-fantasy role-playing series. Below is a list of my transgressions:

ibb & obb

A few weeks ago, the PlayStation Network was graced with yet another exceptional indie release for the PlayStation 3. "ibb & obb" came from the small team at Sparpweed, and was headed up by Richard Boeser, the driving force behind the co-op puzzle game. The game puts players in the roles of the titular characters as they work together to traverse a world full of maddeningly wonderful puzzles. Players can try to take on the game alone, but it's much better when played with a friend. As a follow up to our review, we had some questions for Mr. Boeser, who provided us with a much better understanding of the game as a whole, as well as some unique insight into the development cycle of "ibb & obb."

quiet

One of the many hallmarks of the Metal Gear Solid franchise has been its colorful cast of female characters, specifically the ones that push the sexual envelope, and quite vigorously. Though Quiet, the mute sniper that will grace "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain," has gotten a greater amount of flack than usual.

Even our own Charles Webb took issue with her character design, noting that: "In the context of a game that blends child soldiers and PTSD, this feels like a misstep, overtly sexualizing the one named female character that's been shown in the game up to this point, and further objectifying her by making her mute."
