Joystiq Streams: Back underground with Metro Redux's survival horror [UPDATE: Relive the stream!]

Been above ground so long I hardly knew the place/Gee it's good to be back home/Leave it till tomorrow to unpack my gas mask/Honey disconnect the phone/I'm back in the U.S.S.R metro/You don't know how lucky you are boy/Back in the U.S.S.R. metro

There is nothing quite so unsettling as the Xbox controller left bumper button when you're playing Metro Redux. Sneaking over irradiated pools of stagnant water in 2033 Moscow, the left bumper is what you press to wipe grime off your gas mask. One careful wipe might help you see a fallen scavenger ripe with spare ammunition. Another might have your vision obscured just long enough for a giant, mutated pig bear to run up and eat you.

Joystiq Streams is diving into Metro Redux, the newly revamped collection of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light from 4A Games, at 4PM EST on

Joystiq Streams broadcasts every Tuesday and Thursday at 4PM EST on, but we regularly stream at unusual times so be sure to follow us on Twitch to know when we go live!
