Following Jason Rubin's account of the rather terrible conditions developer 4A Games has to endure to stay in business, Metro: Last Light creative director Andrew Prokhorov responds to the former THQ boss.

Metro: Last Light's 4A Games is that developer from... erm, er - where are they from? That's precisely the problem, says Jason Rubin - the former Naughty Dog man thrown the hot potato that was THQ.
Rubin is doing what he can to tell the story behind the game of Metro, and it's far, far from an ideal situation for any developer - or any company for that matter. Electricity would've been nice.

A survey going around for DICE's Battlefield 4 has been confirmed as legitimate by EA, but what it contains shouldn't be taken as gospel for what's coming, like when it mentioned "dramatic water-based combat."
Piloting attack boats, inflatable boats, and jet skis on "swelling seas and stormy oceans" might not happen. The survey also talks about blowing dams open to flood combat zones.
We are finally getting to know more about what shape the XCOM shooter is taking, and now, thanks to our interview with 2K Games' Nico Bihary, we're learning about some classified material.

If you thought you'd be retiring on that big fat cheque from EA because you domain parked yourself at Battlefield16.com, then think again. EA has been on the war path and annexed a few more slithers of the internet.
