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?

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.
Time for a brief history lesson: the game that would end up being Final Fantasy Type-0 for the PSP was originally supposed to be something called Final Fantasy Agito XIII.
It was conceived as a spin off of FF13, and a follow up of sorts to Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII, which itself was a spin off of FF7 for mobile phones.
Eventually the game changed its name and platform, but just the other day, Square Enix decided to resurrect the Agito name. For what's basically a retelling of Type-0, and for the originally intended platform, iOS and Android.
