Am I the only person who could not get into S.T.A.L.K.E.R. ?

I even downloaded the super mod pack thingy that gave it better graphics and fixed some bugs and yet I still can't get into the game (I think it was the map or something killed it for me)

Anyone?


I struggled with STALKER, too. It appears to be a rewarding game if you stick with it, and I generally like mission-based RPGs. but I just wasn't feeling it. Extremely long load times killed it for me; the texture pack made it prettier but even longer load times!

I think I need a gentler learning curve. As it's not the usual generic fantasy-themed RPG, there is a lot to learn as you're going. Took me a couple of hours to figure out what the batteries were for, for example. These are not bad things necessarily, but it is a barrier to entry.

I will try it again some day. I already have SoC in my Steam account, too. I have a new computer since then, which should help with the load times. I really want to like this game; I like to support smaller developers who shake things up a bit.

Don't know much about this game, but I do know I can make back the 99 cents before the game downloads and installs. :)

Done.

haha, never heard that rationale before, pretty true!

this game seems awesome, just getting it now to save for the day I can run it..I wonder what the deal of week will be? and how did we learn that these excellent daily deals will end on 12/8??

There was no DLC for it but there was a "sequel" that probably should've just been DLC. I have the 2nd game (got it really cheap) but not the first so this may be a buy...

Two sequels were made.

Clear Sky
Call of Pripyat

I have the first and third but not clear sky. It was published by another company and my understanding is it isn't as good as the other two.

It isn't quite a great, but I still thought Clear Sky was pretty decent. It focuses more on faction fighting than investigating the zone itself. I still enjoyed it a little bit. It is going for $4 on Gamersgate right now, can't really lose at that price.

I own STALKER on Steam already. Oh well, I'll pass. I'll take a break from these laughably free deals.

Can you mod a GFWL game? Doesn't the service do a check and block altered contents?

This isn't a GFWL game, and yes, you can mod GFWL games. Ex. Halo 2Vista and Fallout 3.

Stalker is definitely the best game I played this year, and the scariest game I've played in a decade. Fantastic game. If you've ever found yourself complaining about "stale gaming experiences" or "all FPSes are the same nowadays" you must buy this game. However, this man speaks the truth:

Yes. Absolutely. Please don't come back here saying that I (and others) are wrong to like the game if you haven't installed any mods. If you still don't like the game after installing this, that's fine, it's not for everybody -- it doesn't hold your hand, it's bleak, it's hard, it can be somewhat directionless at times -- but without this mod you haven't really played the full game.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a great game and for .99 it is a steal 100x better than Tango that was on sale earlier.

Stalker is one of the most satisfying games I've played. Possibly the most underrated game of all time.

Damn it. I already own 75 percent of the games that have been on sale, mostly from goozex.

You have to updated stalker to 1.0.5 to install stalker complete. How do I update the game?

In the lower corner of the main menu it should say 1.0005. That is the "level" that stalker needs to be at to install complete 09. So just go ahead and install it because the game was automatically at that update level.

Loving these dollar deals. The only ones I haven't bought so far were the MP only (Shadowrun and Blacklight) I wish these dollar deals would continue until they run out of games that they can sell for a dollar.
