The only thing missing in Metro 2033's bleak landscape is Morpheus from The Matrix spouting quips about pills and deserts.

Video Blips:

• The launch trailer for Metro 2033 reminds us that a post-apocalyptic dystopia can still be endlessly fun. Gee, it looks like I'll still have to kill rats in a sewer — but in Russia. [GameTrailers]

Continue after the break for some serious shredding in Power Gig, the high-octane hijinks of Need for Speed: World, and a most interesting meeting in 3D Dot Game Heroes.


• This debut trailer for Power Gig features a real six-string guitar, but where's the actual gameplay? Also featured: cheesy '80s fashion and gratuitous background extras. [GameTrailers]

• Need for Speed: World promises to deliver a true racing MMO. With the inclusion of police cruisers, the opportunity to re-create your very own Blues Brothers escapade is greater than ever! [Joystiq]

• I got really thirsty after watching this vignette of the most interesting hero in 3D Dot Game Heroes. I love how Atlus' take on the familiar catchphrase speaks through a retro voice.
