The release of Metro: Last Light, continuation of the first person shooter Metro 2033, has been postponed until the first quarter of next year.

Publisher gave the same reason that all the companies give for delaying a launch, that studio 4A Games need more time to finish the title right.

In their greed more and more companies invent all sorts of ways to increase their income, even though often those methods are not very accepted by players.

Now EA introduced Online Pass system that forces those who buy an used game to pay extra $ 10 to the company if they want to play online.

But to popularize the new first-person shooter Syndicate, and not out of respect for players, EA announced that it will not benefit from this fabulous restriction, as will happen with the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Mass Effect 3 or new title Dragon Age .

In May Valve has made available the first part of the Portal 2 soundtrack, now the fans can download the second part of the soundtrack for free. The third part will be available soon.

Through a post published on the official Battlefield blog, Karl Magnus Troedsson – General Manager DICE –  revealed that the online service Battlelog for first-person military shooter Battlefield 3 will be completely free.

This will give players (among others) detailed statistics and the posibility to create squads or platoons.It also includes voice chat and friends list. The announcement comes as a direct response to the recently-announced Call of Duty Elite service, which will cost.

“Of course there are things we will not be showing at E3, including the game’s extensive co-op campaign, the introduction of Team Death Match mode and the Battlefield 3 Battlelog web destination – featuring powerful social tools, feeds and detailed player stats. Battlelog also lets you manage your friends lists, squad up, create platoons, use voice chat and follow your friends’ progress in real-time, and more. Battlelog will be available for the monthly fee of (drum roll)… zero dollars. We look forward to providing more information on these features in the near future!”
