    You have to find an alternate route.

    There is a path of boards when you travel away from the car, and another building that you go through.

    Only baddie that's worth wasting "clean" ammo on - 1.5 mags will take one down . . . and considering how far into the game that you actually run across them, there's not too much of a need to hoard any more clean ammo.

    The combo I was using was to have the full-auto shotty loaded, fire off the 6 shells, swap to the kalash and finish 'em off. Works like a charm, even on the slightly more powerful "black" librarians. Just remember to reload both weapons in between confrontations. :toast:


    Anyhow, have finished the game twice. It's pretty, but I probably won't be coming back to it for a while . . . unless they release some DLC.

    Back to STALKER :p

    The sequel is already out in Russia. It's called Metro 2034.

    It's only in book form, but a game version of it should be out at some point.

    At least S.T.A.L.K.E.R. did it long time ago... That's one of the main things that take the atmosphere and immersion to higher level. At least for me.

    To be honest I'm not to impressed with the graphics after watching a few videos.

    Looks just like a graphically tweaked S.T.A.L.K.E.R to me.

    Could be youtube murdering the quality though.

    Any one who has the game and Stalker willing the comment?

    ( obviously you'd need to of tweaked the game as-well, including texture resolution)

    Metro 2033 has obviously better graphics over Stalker (CoP) to me. I guess you need to play the game to find out. I would wait until it hits the bargain bin though. As good as it looks, it's too short and too linear. It's worth maybe twenty or thirty bucks.

    Gameplay: Metro 2033 < Call of Pripyat
    Graphics: Metro 2033 > Call of Pripyat
    Sound: Metro 2033 < Call of Pripyat
    Story: Metro 2033 = Call of Pripyat (both are mediocre)
    Overall: Metro 2033 < Call of Pripyat

    I beat Call of Pripyat three times, Metro 2033 once.

    Yeah but did you modify stalker at all?

    That's the main thing I'm interested in XD

    There may be a Stalker modding thread around still. I have no interest in the game really.

    I think Call of Pripyat is about a 40 hour game (could be done a lot quicker than that--I'm a hoarder and a completionist). Metro 2033 is well under 20.

    This game is too much fun. After "demoing" the game for 3-4 stations I decided it was well worth my money so I picked it up. Just completed the first section with the night vision goggles.

    Running DX11 High, 4xAA 16xAF with advanced DOF off. Runs well enough to play with a 360 controller but would be too slow for the mouse IMO.

    This game does rock - the Russian language version is phenomenal, the voice acting, story, how they talk... Definitely will replay in english to see if its the same. If Call of Pripyat is any better I will definitely pick it up.

    Funny thing is, I was actually born in Ovrutch, which is like 50 miles away from Chernobyl lol. Stalker gives me nostalgia.

    Well I can't compare the Russian version to the English version but I do like the voice acting so far. Generic human enemies start to repeat themselves and some of the VO sounds like it was ripped right from the Korean in Crysis but overall the VO on the important characters is done well enough to not break immersion.

    When I use my TV (1360x768) I do turn it on but @ 1920x1080 a single 5850 just doesnt have the raw muscle to keep it playable, especially with 4xAA. If I had 2 5850s and only used my TV I would leave it on.

    DX11 without DOF still uses tessellation.
