My question is, since Metro is based off of Metro 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky, would he have some leverage over who buys the franchise?

I don't think so.

Plus Metro: Last light isn't based off of the book...Metro 2033 was. THQ had to get the rights to make the game...obviously.

So who knows...he may or may not. For him...it wouldn't make much of a difference.


I thought there was another book Last Light was based off but I don't know cause I don't read

Nope....the only Metro book is Metro 2033.

Incorrect. Dmitry did write a Metro 2034, however it does not feature Artyom or any other 2033 characters and, to my knowledge, it has not been translated to English yet.

Oh...ok

All I did before was search up Metro: Last Light and Metro: Last Light book and only Metro 2033 (book) came up.

NO, NO, NO, THQ, you cannot do that!! You're company is one of the last honest giants in the gaming world, if you sell of some of your'e best franchise's the gaming world will be a darker place for it!

An English translation is coming soon, according to Wikipedia, but fan translations already exist. However, they are not as accurate.

Glory and fame, blood is our name!
Souls full of thunder, hearts of steel!
Killers of men, a warrior's friend!
Sworn to avenge our fallen brothers!
Sons of the gods, today we shall die.
Open Valhalla's door!
Let the battle begin, with swords in the wind! Hail Gods of War!

I really really hope EA doesn't get Saint's Row. Anyone who gets Red Faction would also have to get SR, since they're technically the same universe. Just anyone but EA.

Why EA and Activision?

2K (incl. Rockstar) and Berthesda seem to screw the customer less than EA and Activison.

The Internet is an empowerment tool that's agnostic; it doesn't care about race, gender, or age.

Don't care for any of those games so it's cool.

No....they don't.

EA and Activison are 2 of the worse publishers...EA more so though.

EA was voted worse company in America after all...
