Damnit, I can't beat the two soldiers in the Arena. I don't have enough bandages to spam.
So don't get shot.
What's that? There's tactics other than blindly rushing?!
God damn it. Getting raped by invisible anomalies, teleporting and getting cockblocked by a BTR, then having to fight the military in pitch black is one thing, but falling dead tired on a bed and actually dying is the definition of maximum ragequit.
Such is life in the zone. :)
However, when you start getting into a good CoP mod it's amazing because it generally plays out like life in the Zone should : There aren't many encounters with hostile stalkers (even with mods that introduce hostile-on-sight mercs) but if you have discipline to not save outside of safe areas, outings to the Zone in Redux and Misery are really tense. In addition, the day / night cycle and the general A-Life of the stalkers makes the Zone really come alive.
I understand your gripes with CoP though : Back in the days when Call of Pripyat did not have any major mods besides SMRTR, I too had serious gripes with CoP vanilla though because they had huge potential and had all these great things in the game like how the game world slightly reacts to your actions (when you trigger achievements) and your choices unlock different quest chains but then they fudged it up with a total and utter lack of NPC hostility and lack of things to do in Freeplay but god damn with good mods, I find Call of Pripyat really entertaining to just live and stalk in. I find myself sometimes wasting whole days just tagging along stalker parties and "living" the life in the Zone.
I agree. COP was amazing apart from the English voice acting. (Which is why I stick to my Russian copy of the game)
Saying that however. Add some good mods to the mix and the game is amazing. And you can waste a LOT of time just wondering around and playing. Once I fly home I plan to play the living life out of it all over again.
English voice acting in all the games is bad.
CoP imo is the most polished of all 3 in terms of it's engine; the best base on which to build a mod, and considering a bunch of mods are already working on (and having success in) porting all the old levels and making some completely new ones, there'll soon be tons of content.
I guess. But then a lot of Russians may say that the Russian voice acting was horrible. Maybe it only sounds good to us because we are used to the English and can tell when something is odd or off. And likewise for the Russians. In any-case. COP I think is an amazing game and add in mods and the upcoming stuff. It shall remain to be a great game for a while to come.
I guess a lot of it comes to preference. Some buddies of mine and my brother who play COP don't mind the English voices. But I and another handful of people HATE them.
Stream is done. 80% of the chat was Tribes talk.
Sorry if I sounded boring, but it was kinda late-ish and people would think I was crazy if I yelled Shazbot out of nowhere.
That stream lacked serious SHAZBOT and needed more FRASIER.
I finished the Loner sprites and I also did the Bandits:
I've got all the shit you're ever gonna need!
quick question, just started playing Call of Pripyat and I just got done inspecting the first helicopter and now an emission is coming
what the fuck is an emission and how do i hide from it?
If you're in the Swamp, sprint for the tunnel under the road.
If you're at the Iron Forest, sprint for the building entrance just north of the Hind.
So everyone, what have I missed this past few months I've been away?
my world just shattered and I think I was just psy-sodomized by that.
Well I'm clad that unlike the rest of the wankers in the industry, these guys actually correct & confirm some things in their games.
except it's just Joe saying that and he's not exactly an official source of GSC info
i have a feeling that's his opinion, not an official statement
that said, scar is not charon
Both of these achievements have hand shaking and involve hostages, interesting. The second is from Payday: The Heist
Just spent a bit of time testing my stream settings. Found out if I'm in game mode, I can stream fullscreen.
What version of Stalker do you need to run OGSE?
I'm thinking of downloading it.
