Most of my interest in 4A Games’ “Metro: Last Light” has been linked to the implosion of THQ last year and the series’ subsequent sale to Deep Silver, a company that’s been refreshingly frank about its motivations for buying the title and about its previous owners’ mismanagement.
Let’s not forget, though: “Metro: Last Light” will be out in less than a month. To better remind us, publisher Deep Silver’s last marketing push includes a series of so-called Ranger Survival Guides, detailing the post-apocalyptic society living in Moscow’s subterranean rail stations.

Leave it to a film director to try to come up with some new ideas for video games. Josef Fares, best known for his work "Zozo" and other award-winning Swedish films, has teamed up with Starbreeze Studios, best known for their work on "The Darkness" and "The Chronicles of Riddick" (both of them) to collaborate on an all new title, "Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons," an experiential, single-player story. Fares' cinematic background gives him a unique perspective on the craft of telling stories, making his first foray into gaming a bit unconventional.
At the core of Black Forest Games' puzzle-platformer "Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams" is a clever concept: you play as both the "sweet" and "punk" Giana sisters, able to shift back and forth between different versions of the same world, each shift changing the enemies and some level details (the challenge is knowing when to shift, you see), all based around the usual gem hunt in order to progress to the boss level of the three worlds of "Twisted Dreams." Oh, and the Cute sister has a glide move allowing her to extend jumps and slow her descent while the Punk sister has a Sonic-style dash good for getting some extra verticality and busting through walls.
So why did I have so little fun hopping between worlds as "Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams" makes its Xbox LIVE debut?
