Games discussed:

The anticipated sequel to Metro: Last Light is coming out this coming February, and it looks absolutely stunning. Take a look at a demo gameplay reel from just one level, shot in-game. Welcome to the Volga indeed.

From the release:

The new trailer illustrates the many new experiences and dangers that await. The Volga region of Russia encompasses the drainage basin of Europe's largest river and is packed with dangerous bandits, a fanatic religious cult, and a range of vicious mutants desperate to make Artyom their next meal.  

4A Games have re-imagined the landscape of the eastern European plains in awe-inspiring detail, including the flooded remains of villages and factories where life was forever changed 25 years previously.
