STALKER: Clear Sky...after a short intro play

I've been playing it for around 90mins and yep, it's that old stalker magic all over again ;)

My vid card doesn't do it justice as its a 512mb, 8500gt, but hell it sure is lovely:) Even on the cut back graphic settings and at a paltry 1024x768. This is the res that the game set and I haven't tried any other settings as I just wanted to get into it ;p

I'm playing on master lvl and appears that it's a lot harder than the original at that lvl.

My only real prob is the noob start area and it's associated learning curve, but other than that...it's pure stalker carnage, fun, dying etc!

cu in the zone dooods!
;p

lol noob starting area, you need to have those for people who have never played the first one to get used to the game mechanics otherwise they would have alot of unsatisfied customers :)

Yeah, I know, but mainly I was having a dig at the differences in the new games way of addressing those everyday stalker things.

It's form and function, the more they change, the more they stay the same :p

I'm a huge STALKER fan so I'll def be picking this up.

Have a read of
http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2008/09/03/clear-sky-the-first-patch/#more-2444
as it includes notes on the patch and [POSSIBLE SPOILER] a scripted mugging you'd do well to avoid(?). Me, I'm all go for a head's up on a shitty mugging after having (presumably) worked quite hard to hoard me loots.

My friend picked it up yesterday and has been taunting me with words such as "I have Clear Sky installed but I'm too busy playing WoW to try it out."

After he finally started playing he said it looks absolutely fantastic and thus far is loving the game play.

EDIT: I've ordered a Russian collectors edition which should (fingers crossed) be here in a few weeks. I'm not sure whether to pick it up retail or on Steam at this stage though.

I hope so too.

It would be nice if the Steam price would be announced soon as I want to pick it up tonight if the price will be the same/similar.

EB are advertising it at $69, did you lot pick it up cheaper than that?

nah, i got it for $69, which is still a good (australian) price for a new release. SOC was about $90 when it came out IIRC

SOC came in a tin, which I think was the collectors edition. But this one is just the plain old vanilla version.

I got a call yesterday from my local eb, and as I don't own a car, I couldn't be stuffed hitching the 108k round trip to pick it up, especially seeing as I would be in town the next day <today>.
And yeah $69.95 in my hot little mits, ty :)

My only gripe so far is when you die, instead of just pressing the game reload key, you have to go back to the game save selection panel and click the save you want to use.
It really slows game play down and damn well sux badly :(

But other than that...BRING IT ON!!!!

Confined, where did you order your Russian Collector's from? I'm looking at doing the same to get all the goodies and then getting an English copy to actually play the game.

Was going to order from ozon.ru originally but toward the end of the checkout process it cancelled the order as they can't ship the item outside of Russia.

I got it off eBay in the end. Figured it was worth the gamble.

No worries. Considering that is the only auction up for Clear Sky Russian Collectors I'm not sure what the availability is like. It's been out since August 22nd IIRC in Russia so probably limited quantities.

I would suggest wait a few weeks and see what happens with the one I ordered, but then again there may not be any more left in a few weeks.

Yikesicles! $79US, +$20US for shipping for the Russian Collector's Ed. It's 'buy it now' though, and they reckon they've got 16 left.

I love Stalker, but $99US might be a bit too rich for me, given I'd still need to buy a local copy to understand the gameplay. Damn my need to have it all!
