After Chernobyl was evacuated, the area around it was silent - untouched by man and reclaimed by nature. Trees grew up amongst the concrete edifices of Pripyat and wildlife found new homes in the devastation. With no reason to enter the area, mankind left it alone - a nagging prick to the conscience that refused to go away. However stories originated. Reports of strange creatures, twisted by the consequences of the accident became commonplace. Some even spoke of abandoned treasures within what came to be called "The Zone".

In 2006 disaster seemed to strike again. A bright light originated from the old reactor plant and people speculated that a second explosion had occurred. Military patrols increased as the authorities seemed more determined than ever to keep people out. However human nature prevailed. Curiosity and greed led to the phenomenon of the "Stalker" - part explorer, part mercenary, part treasure hunter. These brave and foolish individuals started entering the Zone to see what could be salvaged. What they found was beyond imagination. Stalkers bought out wonders and horrors. Strange irradiated objects called "artefacts" fetched huge sums on a thriving black market - somebody somewhere obviously thought that these artefacts have some value. However the risks involved in retrieving these were huge - mutant creatures roamed the landscape, ready to feed on anything they encountered. And horrific pockets of energy known as "Anomalies" claimed the lives of many unwary Stalkers.

It is now 2012. The Zone is full of wonder and death. Stalkers, mutants and the military roam the deadly landscape of the Zone. It is into this world that you will take the first faltering steps toward becoming a Stalker.

Sweet fucking crust flakes of Jesus' shit stained speedos! I just had the fortune of playing this game and I can safely say it's on par with Deus Ex, meaning it's the second best game in the world. Yeah I said it! I'm so
fucking thrilled and my erection won't fade away no matter how much I slam my wemis on my kitchen table. Everyone get this game 'cause if you don't you won't have a 6ft boner stuck to your cock and you're missing out the joy of uncontrollably squirting semen on random objects such as females and ipod casings.

Can you play this game with a control? Or do you have to go old school with the keyboard? Cant seem to find anywhere 2 activate my controller.

Sexy Jasper

Controllers are for homosexuals and British people. I prefer mouse and keyboard. I bought the special edition of the game and it runs shitty on my pc, what the fucksels.

I probably need to download that patch first, but I was too busy ejaculating all over the map. I'd buy a fucking super computer to play this game right even if the graphics look like transvestite mountains and homo shaped eggs.

I bought this shti the other day. Fucking badass game. I died once next to a dude that was laying there wounded and the guy who killed me rounded the corner, said something in Russian, and then capped out the guy on the ground. Fucking badass.

When you have a laptop, the mouse and keyboard controls are tough. Ive been online already and got beaten by some professionals, although i did get a nice head shot in on some person. BLAO

game is fucking great!
it's like shooter version of Fallout(i'm sure you guys have played it)

Bloo
04-01-2007, 11:45 PM
That's what I was kind of thinking at first. It's almost like a FPS with RPG emelents, without the RPG elements. Like, you manage an inventory, you have armor upgrades, weapon stats, but no leveling. I mean, what's up wit dat? Still a good game though.

BTW, does this game work with a controller 36? I didn't see an option for it in the setup. Not that I'd use it, I have too much pride and a laser mouse that would me highly dissapointed...

What do you think, is the game better than Half-Life 2???
Half-Life 2 was the shit by the way

Sexy Jasper

I think it's better than Half Life 2 as far as I've played STALKER.

Stalker is more of a sandbox setup. While HL2 is a linear experience.

But HL2 still rules all :)

HL2 is great, grrr, I hate the bugs in STALKER, hope for a badass patch soon...other than that, a cool game...but Deus Ex -this is not :)

I'll give you a heads up. No less than a gig of RAM, a Core 2 Duo, and at least a GeForce 7900.

It could have been a top notch game if the bugs weren't so fucking annoying. I had one mission the was the exact same as another (clearing out a village of bloodsuckers) I got from a different guy. It only let me complete one so I had to refuse the other. Bullshit.

Doing a little research online yesterday I ran across a little patch per say for the game.
www.3dgamers.com/dlselect/games/stalker/float32_4247_036a_release.zip.html (http://www.3dgamers.com/dlselect/games/stalker/float32_4247_036a_release.zip.html)

It's a little mod that improved the shader quality in the game, plus from what I've noticed, give you a bit of boost in performance. I still get slowdown in some areas but it's at least playable now with full dynamic lighting on. Check it out, and make sure to follow the instructions in the readme.
