Good old eastern Europe. Always there when we need something poetic, bleak, and utterly mad. Oh and Borat. Don't forget Borat. Beautifully bleak poetry and ironic racist sterotypes, then. Eastern Europe, you have that shit nailed.
Mercilly full of the former and lacking any form of satirical anti-semitism, these screens from the upcoming Metro: Last Light, sequel to sleeper-hit-Moscow-apocalypse-survival-horror-FPS Metro 2033, have just arrived from - yes, like everything this week - Gamescom. Check 'em out. They contain a small boy about to be eaten by something unpleasant, and the most tear-jerkingly poignant tree you've ever seen.
Above: Seriously. Gaze at this with Brian Eno's 'An Ending' playing and then tell me you're not weeping
