STALKER was loaded with bugs, but still incredibly fun, a perfect match for Bethesda.

Theo11303283d ago

Bubble add this man.

On topic, I don't know if this a good thing or a bad thing. Bethesda would want to bring this to consoles, and I don't mind that, but streamlining it for consoles would destroy what is fundamentally makes stalker a great game.

JsonHenry3283d ago

STALKER 2 was being made for consoles in the first place. Hopefully now though it will be on next gen so it won't be too gimped on the PC version.

Theo11303283d ago


I'm not worried about the graphics aspect of stalker 2, it's about the interface, shooting, difficulty, and complexity of games developed in eastern Europe.

the stalker games are comparable to a dense book, it's hard to get into, but once you get into the right mind set, it becomes incredible, and I'm not sure bethesda understands that.

One of the reasons I'd never make Pc gaming my focus over console gaming. Having to find the right patch on thousands of torrents to make STALKER work while I could be doing some other worthwhile thing, like playing video games, is not my idea of fun.

beerkeg3283d ago

Why would you need to use torrents to find the patch? A simple google search of 'stalker patch' would bring up on the second search result.

You're just showing that you don't know what you're talking about.

WrAiTh Sp3cTr33283d ago

What I'm talking about is trial and error. I have no reason to lie and ive used that link you provided...why am I explaining myself to you? You're a nobody...kick rocks, lol

Theo11303283d ago

Wraith, you're high. No one goes to websites to get a patch, they're all automatic now...

Letros3283d ago

Someone has never heard of steam...

Rubberlegs3283d ago

Having to search around for the best place for game patches is old now. Either buy the game through Steam and never worry about updating it or most games have an auto update built it.

It looks like Bethesda won't be satisfied until it owns every post apocalypic series out there!

MAJ0R3283d ago

Well Bethesda is famous for taking over series like Fallout, so if they take STALKER over and make it as popular as their other famous RPG's, it wouldn't surprise me.

Although this does mean that STALKER would be stripped of any kind of depth that it had in the previous games, unfortunately.

srcBFMVBMTH3283d ago (Edited 3283d ago )

STALKER coming to consoles? YAY!


I'm not a graphics whore so I honestly couldn't care less Loool. If a game is fun I'll play it, whether if looks like crap or not. Only children care about that kinda shit Lol.

pr0digyZA3283d ago

Always was going to be even when GSC was doing it.

decrypt3283d ago (Edited 3283d ago )

There goes another perfectly good franchise down the drain. Heres hoping it doesnt become another COD clone lol.


Anything that goes console and is a shooter, inevitably becomes a COD clone. Its so the console community will accept it.

I know its ridiculous right? get ready for day one DLCs and eventual dumbing down of the series(if not from the get go).

Alos883283d ago (Edited 3283d ago )

COD clone? What the hell are you talking about, that made no sense.
Edit: Stalker is more than just a shooter, and the idea that it coming to consoles means it will become a COD clone is beyond ridiculous.

srcBFMVBMTH3283d ago (Edited 3283d ago )

Bethesda makes COD clones? That's pretty big news to me. I had no idea.

PS. I'd take Day 1 DLC over DRM's any day bro.

beerkeg3283d ago

Stalker going to consoles would be bad news no matter which way you spin it. Everything that was great about Stalker would go through the Consolitus Development Blender and come out as streamlined gooey crap.

Alos883283d ago

And again, you are basing this on nothing. Maybe you should judge the game AFTER we know anything about it?

T9003283d ago


Yea just like Crysis 2..

Remember how the dev kept promising the game wouldnt get compromised due to console development.

In the end what came out was very linear corridor style game. Specially suited for the console demographic. Hell the PC version didnt even feature graphic adjustment features.

Sorry but most games that do go console, also tend to get the consolitus treatment.

Alos883283d ago

If that's true, then how did Crytec port the original Crysis to consoles? Blame the laziness of the devs, not the consoles.

T9003283d ago

Alos seriously you either havent played Crysis on console or are being plane blind. The only way consoles do manage Crysis is with most of the vegetation and foliage missing. Not to mention the low res textures everywhere.

Hope you enjoy sub par textures with 20 fps. With added screen tear and slow loading. I'm not being sarcastic.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney3283d ago (Edited 3283d ago )

Now how do you make it for the masses who never heard of stalker? Dumb it down & make a trailer so all the noobs can call it a metro rip off?

This could be great news if true! Im still waiting on some kind of conformation of the development of fallout 4 :/
