I know THQ had nothing to do with CS and CoP. I was defending SoC only, since you failed to give GSC good credit for making it. And sorry for misinterpreting your post about #68. Still, the truth of the matter is that dez is not some pawn of GSC and GSC isn't trying to steal LA. They could take over if dez0wave forfeits, but why would they when they've gotten so far and have put so much time and energy into the project? You probably have an impression that every company is always manipulative and exploitative in every scenario. Can't generalize things that much.
Worst case scenario, GSC goes evil and LA gets leaked to the public in it's beta stage. Could be, but it's very unlikely. Why openly build one's reputation by helping and then completely ruin it in front of all the fans by trying to take over the project? GSC offered help and isn't trying to do anything more than that. No control, no conditions.
Stop hating on GSC. If THQ didn't rush them, SoC would be bug free and stable like CoP, plus would have alot more uncut features and levels. Without GSC, there would be no Stalker. Coming here and saying how big of a fan you are, while hating the devs for giving you SoC and then hating them more for helping out LA that everyone wants is plain retarded. At least give people some credit for their work. You're 68, but are raging like a 12 year old who lost his Sega. GSC might have messed up with CS and CoP, but at least they're doing a good job with helping dez0wave. If you don't wanna pay, don't pay, but don't hate either.
First of all, alot of ex-GSC devs are in dez0wave. Second, GSC provided them with help, concept and heavy engine overhauling. That's alot more than just simple money grabbing. Name one company that helps modders build their mods? Lastly, who said GSC won't split profit and reward dez0wave for their hard work? What's better, releasing a mod for free or releasing a mod and getting payed for it. GSC is actually doing them a huge favor.
Is your to do list still big or is it thinning out (hopefully)?
Grass looks great. So much more atmospheric.
Заходи не бойся, выходи не плачь!:D
Vodka, sunshine, nice balcony. This is real life!
Make love to my rpg, choppa!
Dat ganja brewin' inside the BTR!0_0
Happy chopper out hunting boars.
Roll and giggle.
That can only mean one thing: dez0wave worked on Stalker from the beginning with GSC. No wonder they're so good.;)
Alife is overhauled and taken from SoC, imo. Yes, Strelok is the protagonist.
So peaceful and tranquil, not a gust of wind in the air, as if time itself is frozen...
Then suddenly, a pack of mutants rush by, fleeing from a pursuing BTR that violently runs over and squashes the sedan. Then, all of the sudden, everything becomes dark and a blowout begins.
Yeah, that would be even better.
Am I the only guy who thinks zombies should move fast when they see you? They just kind of limp-walk and act more like obstacles. You have to be pretty dumb to get cornered and be in danger. It'd be a lot more creepy and edgy if they went this fast forward mode when they get hurt or when they see you. Not too fast, like in L4D, but considerably fast.
Nothing withstands the shockwave of an AK-74!
Don't go there!
Hey, that's Sid's car. He's fetching us some tourist delight from the warehouse.
Don't scare the children.:)
Look at it this way, if the devs were confident they could finish LA quickly, they'd say something like "near spring or summer." No reason to hide news, if you're almost done, right? But, since they aren't saying anything, they aren't sure and it might take awhile, maybe till the end of the year.
LA coming out at the end of this year. In waiting we trust!
Yes, at NPP from the demo clip and probably in Pripyat. Unlike regular military, they're equipped with top of the line gear and try to breach into the center of the zone.
First quarter of 2013, imo.
Music files are easy to mod in. Well not that easy, but still very doable. There're are alot of tutorials about this and how to do it in SDK.
I uninstalled CoP and CS. Waiting for LA and playing SoC.:D
If GSC makes money on LA, we could see Stalker 2 someday. Just saying. Not sharing (paying) is not caring.
It might be on Steam for sale, if GSC so chooses. Personally, I think it's good to let everyone make money and give them support.
So many Monolith between Pripyat and Army Warehouses though. Good mod, nonetheless.
