    First time playing STALKER in 1024x768, still static lightning though.

    Just like having sex already.
    That's exactly how I was playing STALKER for the first time back in 2007!
    It was so damn awesome.

    Deadliest ability of the hamsters is to get close to you while remaining invisible if you have any sort of grass density turned on
    Yeah, but their damage level is hilariously small and at worst you'll end up in a three way with them and other mutants.

    Edited:

    Plus there's them often getting spawned in interiors or urban locations.

    Oh, we're talking about our most hated mutants now?
    I hate every single on of them equally.
    Blind dogs swarm me and invade my rear uninvited whenever they have the chance.
    Bloodsuckers are loud and ugly, but now they're dead, amen.
    Boars are big, heavy and deal lods of edamage.
    Burers never leave my guns and fatigue alone and never take damage when I tell them to.
    Chimaeras are the bane of my existence, man, just leg it.
    Controllers are cuntrollers.
    Flesh are made of concrete and shrug off all the bullets I fire at them.
    Poltergeists get my anus rent if there's a single object to fling at me.
    Pseudodogs are like blind dogs, just worse.
    Pseudogiants never die and they can give me testicular cancer.
    Snorsks make sure I always wear my codpiece.
    Tushkanos (aka hamsters) are noisy but never pose a real challenge, just an annoyance I can't wait to get rid of.

    I absolutely hated the rats in OGSM Clear Sky. They were brown and unlike the hamsters, they didn't stand tall and they made you bleed a lot.

    Also, the tushkanos sound like demons in Misery.

    Yeah, but so did STALKER 2.

    On the bright side, 2013 will be the Year of Slavic Apocalypse Games.

    I'm pretty sure GSC's support team is composed of robots, I send a ticket to them complaining that my cd key won't work for shit in multiplayer and they just replied me with "Greetings" and my exact key again after it.

    I guess they got brainwashed by the Holy Monolith again.

    It might also be that stalker is also a much more interesting game to talk about, but the metro book was by far better than any stalker book.

    Metro has a really strong atmosphere but unlike STALKER, there's not much variation and aside from using stealth or not, it largely plays out the same for everyone.
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R games are a polar opposite in that SoC and CoP produce a countless number of unique situations and interesting tales thanks to the A-Life system.

    the metro book was by far better than any stalker book.
    Metro 2033 was indeed an amazingly atmospheric book and more intriguing than the game adaptation. Haven't read any S.T.A.L.K.E.R novels but from what I hear most of them aren't very good and rape the lore in various ways. Looking forward to reading Southern Comfort, though.

    What about Clear Sky?
    Unless we're talking about mods like TFW or PreSky (both of which appeared only lately), most of Clear Sky's levels are really static and predictable. For example, once the Clear Sky vs Renegades thing gets fought out in the Swamps, the renegades will not move anywhere from their fixed spots they keep respawning to. Same thing with the Cordon army base : Their reinforcements come from outside the map instead of Agroprom reinforcing Cordon block post and vice versa which means that the various A.I groups will stay in their spawns and won't move unless the player aggroes them. Granted, the Faction Wars do bring about some unpredictable moments but not like SoC or CoP.

    What about Clear Sky? The shit that's happened to me in the others is nothing in comparison what's happened in Clear Sky. The only thing from the other games that stands with it is the time in CoP when literally dozens upon dozens of boars, controllers, and fleshes cornered me during a blowout in the middle of nowhere at Yanov. Still, I gotta say I love CS the most.

    You shouldn't compare it to any stalker book but "Roadside Picnic". It was RP that spawned the whole idea of the Zone, just like Glukhotsky's book created the world of Metro.

    Sounds more like "tå nie buuch" to me, i'unno.
    No bloody idea. I know that "spaseba muzhik" or however it's spelt means "thanks dude" and that's about it.
    Well, Polish and Russian have something (even if very, very little) in common, and this "Staje" sounds like the polish "Staje" which means "Stands up".

    It's kind of funny to play stalker and understand like 1/4 of what they're saying because of world similarities.

    Also Why do we like Dick waving contests with other games?

    Imagine how English would degrade if most online stuff were written with Cyrillic characters and lots of Russian slang words.

    I think yes, because the language can't be called a shell of its former self, because, well, there's no shell left. It's raped to all hell.

    Raw footage from Tinter's suffering at the Project 62 Testing Facility :

    Finished CoP. Kinda disappointed.. seemed a lot shorter...
    Yeah, I was a bit disappointed that it ended when the cool bit (Pripyat) seemed to start but it kind of makes sense since it's supposed to just close the trilogy started by SoC.

    and more linear than the others..


    I'm not sure if I follow since Call of Pripyat was the most open game both in terms of level design and in what order you decide to take on the various quests and do the first part of the main quest (choppers) at your own pace unlike SoC and CS which are hurrying you towards your next plot mission. If by "linearity" you mean that some of the side quests lack replayability a bit then I sort of agree but there are still many quests you can do rather differently depending on your choices and what achievements you want to pursue.

    You're right, Clear Sky is the best. Those sequels to it pale in comparison.

    That wasn't a joke. Rate agree, not funny.

    Said, I remember, when we used to sit,
    In the scientists lab in Yantar,
    Oba, ob-serving ecologists,
    As they would mingle, with the good people we meet
    Good friends we've had, good friends we've lost
    In this bright new zone you can't forget the old
    So dry your tears, I say,
    No Dushman, no cry.

    Said, said, said I remember, when we used to sit,
    In the flea market yard in Garbage,
    And then duty would fire all right,
    Tracers flashin' through the night.
    Then we'd cook boar hoof porridge,
    Of which ill share with you..
    No Dushman, no cry.
    Oh southern comfort.
