Called my local EB who said there was no such game. Fucking idiots.


Whoa, that's embarrassing. It's one thing not to know about a release, but to ingorantly tell you it doesnt exist is jackassery at it's finest.

Hahaha. A few people from different EBs have pretty much said that every EB staff member has a copy of the game waiting for them, but there's at least one store out there that doesn't even know the game exists?

Actually Windows Movie Maker is not a bad program even in Vista's new version. I found it quite resourceful but if I am going to do this big project, I need more editing power.

Re: Shot Gunz,
Get the long barreled one as opposed to the sawn off one. It has less spread to the shot, they're still wanky, but not quite as much ;p

Installing now.

Picked it up from JB for $60 though due to what I assume are anti-theft precautions, the contents of the box had been removed prior to sale. I can only hope my CD-Key wasn't stolen as it's located on the back of the manual so I'm going to register (for the first time ever) just to be safe.

Still, this is by an large a singleplayer experience and should anything go wrong re cd-key and multiplayer I'm sure there would be a way for private lanners to "circumvent" that necessity ;)

you only need to use the CD key for playing the multiplayer part. i didnt even type mine in and it still works, except (of course) in multiplayer.

Do you need to leave the DVD in the drive to play it though?

First impressions on my behalf?

A visual feast for those who can afford it but ultimately feeling unoptimised engine-wise.

They've taken everything that made STALKER fucking awesome to begin with and quadrupled it. The atmosphere is incredible and the approach they've taken to this prequel is fucking AWESOME. Factions warring it out, critters doing their crazy things, the writing is there from the original hilarious in a really bad kind of way lol.

I've got to say though my favourite part of this, even if it's only the beginning, is the combat. My god! It's so chunky! It feels so... "right". What's more the physics is pulled off so well! I shot this dude from a good couple of meters away with a rifle and he flew back hit the wall and slumped properly. The sound effects compliment everything about this game so well and playing in 5.1 seriously feels good.

I'm in heaven.

Now for that 4870X2 in a couple of weeks...

I'm glad I grabbed my 4870x2 before I got CS, because maxed this game is sexy, sometimes it can look fucking real...

Hmm, dunno if its just me, but it seems that after the 1.1 patch, I cant change the lighting or shadow distance, has that happened to anyone else?

You sure it hasn't dialed back some of the settings for Video in the non-advanced section? If you set it below Full Dynamic Lighting you won't be able to change all that I think.

Sigh... it is killing my 8800GTS which was quite the bomb not that long ago. Technology as always marches on.

So far the best way i can describe is that it is to the original stalker as jagged alliance deadly games was to jagged alliance. Some will love it but others wont.

Personally I am not getting into the storyline, and while the fighting is good, there is too much. I wanted a barren wasteland where occasionally you meet others, and either team up or duke it out. I wanted a greater feeling of isolation.

Unimpressed so far. Very buggy game. You know the first bit, where you run to the outpost and help? it wouldnt let me do it, i was wondering what I was doing wrong and find a guy with a video online of the first 25 minutes so i watched that. Then after trying it 6 times (right from the start of the game) it eventually said "hey, come up here". I'm not going to play it until the next patch, cos I got no idea what I'm going to be missing. Dont want to play a game if I could be doing everything right but it not actually registering and me walking round aimlessly for hours.

yeah, SHOC was the same with the main quest, sometimes it wouldnt giv you the quest to talk to quide, then to doctor so you can get the stuff to destroy the monolith. happened to me and a friend. i have had no trouble so far tho with CS, and i really like it :)

It plays alright on my 8500gt w/512mb at 1024x768. It's a dinky res, but it works for me :)
I set it to the highest settings in the game and it rolls along really well, but of course, there is a lot that it just plain can't do.

But still, it looks bloody lovely :)

Using DX10 or DX9? And if 9, are you using Enchanced Dynamic Lighting?

First off let me rectify a faux pas, Highest Settings was meant to be Higher settings.

I am running DX9c.
No I wasn't using EDL.

Aopls for that.
