Here's a game that won't have a big, rich publisher backing it for the year end's game of the year awards all over the web and media. But it is an excellent game worthy of praise none the less.
It was pretty damn good!
glad to hear, just bought it on steam for 5 bucks lol
Same, haven't played it yet though.
Haven't played Metro yet but I was hoping it would give a similar feel to the stalker series. I would hope the series come to consoles but it has to be done right and there's only one console I can see it being done right on. Pulling a crysis2 for a game like this would be sad.
Yeah it's really underrated. The atmosphere is incredible. ROFL Dude I was sooo high when I posted that thread, I actually don't care about it. I'll wait until my submissions get to 1337 lol. But yeah it's sad to see it not at 1337..couldn't keep it forever.
Thought you weren't posting on mainsite anymore? Dun goofed, broke your 1337.
i dont see whats so great about this game, i guess i'll have to try it out??
It was my favorite of 2010.
I can agree with that.
I'm glad people have supported GSC enough for them to keep making these games. I can't even imagine what they could accomplish in the future, now that their rocky "alpha-build -> scrap --> re-design game -> slowly build back to original vision" seems to be over
I hear stalker 2 is coming to consoles..
Hopefully they will be releasing a true STALKER game on the PC and milk console owners with a dumbed down version that cost $10 more.
I think GSC are too ambitious to dumb their products down on purpose. What I mean is the PC version of the game is most likely going to be as close to their vision as they can get and if they have to scale things back for the consoles, so be it. I just can't see STALKER 2 being STALKER 2 in name, with a hollow core; I see STALKER 2 fitting right at home with PC and perhaps wearing a pair of jeans a few sizes too small on console. Or, that's my hope at least. EDIT: Sorry, this sounds incredibly anti-console. I just mean that if they absolutely MUST make sacrifices, I hope it'll be exclusive to consoles. In a perfect video game world, everything would be equal for everyone though. If studios like GSC had the numbers of Bungie and the endless budget of Microsoft, video games today would be better off as a whole. I hope one day GSC reaches that status, and as a fan I will continue to support them in pursuit of this goal. Sorry, just a mini-fan rant there. Good luck in the Zone fellow Stalkers.
And to think I got Shadow of Chenobryl and Call of Pripyat bundled for $5.00 on steam yesterday... plus mods http://www.youtube.com/watc... PC gaming makes me cry tears of joy.. can't wait to see the last day deals!!
I think last day sales are just going to be second chances
I don't think they will, that would be a disappointing end.
not second chances...and a disappointing end. i thought the last day would be the biggest.
Maybe they are second chances with even lower prices. Although that would anger the people who already bought, so I guess not.
No it is not the best single player experience of 2010, sorry.
let me guess, Mass Effect right? ... riiiiiiight lol
There are others too, but ME is one of them.
Yep there are other godd ones, I haven't played Stalker Cop yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is the best, judging from the first game(best atmosphere ever btw)
I played finished Stalker SoC and i just got Stalker CoP via Steam (through Steam sales) ooohhhh i just love being PC Gamer. I got both Stalker SoC and CoP for just USD5. Love you Valve. Downloading it now and eager for it to finish and start playing. NOTE: Oh..Stalker Clear Sky was just rubbish.
pripyat seems to be really fun, also got it for $5, already played and loved stalker og and some clear sky, this new one seems a return to the roots with a lot of refinments...very very atmospheric and moody! Steam Sales will pay for a new pc every year if you love buying games! I buy like 30 to 40 pc games a year
I agree, i picked up about 15 games so far and spent only $50. It will last me for a long long time. Pc gaming in the grand scheme of things is cheaper because of sales like this.
Yep PC gaming can be very cost effective, i have bought enough games this christmas to last me a good few months until the next discount. With Console the prices of games never come down, in the long run Consoles become too costly to game on.
Nah, its good by ME2 takes teh cake on this one. Im so excited its coming to PS3 soon!
I don't agree. Mass Effect 1 was one of the best games I've ever played. 10/10 Mass Effect 2 is a lot less epic, has a bland storyline, replaced my beloved crew with a bunch of annoying freaks and dropped almost all RPG elements. 8/10
I just started S.T.A.L.K.E.R Shadow of Chernobyl with the Stalker 2009 Complete mod, it's awesome! I'm going to play Clear Sky before Call of Pripyat.
That mod is very good,makes it more challenging and improves gameplay.
I'm really enjoying it so far. The game runs really well on my 8800 GT. I'm surprised it runs as well as it does.
I have had the game for a while now and not played it . I better give this bad boy a go.
STALKER Call OF Pripyat is my game of the year. I can't tell people enough to go out and buy the STALKER series. The graphics, atmosphere, AI, adventure, FPS, RPG elements, the game play, and the fact that the game is modeled after a real place in the old Soviet Union. Half life 2 is my favorite game ever but if stranded on a island give me the Stalker series.
