Anthony Burch is a nutjob. Anyone ever look into this guy?

Yeah, I have no idea why everyone here is giving him such praise. I must be following a different Burch on twitter, I guess.

Didn't the first one come out just about a year ago?

By this time next year, they should be announcing the 6th game.

Not only do Gamergate assholes attack someone for reporting child pornography on 8-chan, they go after the CHILDREN, friends and neighbors of the guy for daring to report child pornography on 8-chan

More on the sordid history of GG here:

Someone needs to research a bit. then again, you only have 87 posts and look what they've all been on. Shill much, buddy?

That CP thing on 8chan? You have it completely wrong. There was an effort by Anti-GamerGate folks to upload CP images to the site and then spam CloudFlare with reporting requests.

You linked rational Wiki. That's funny.

Yup, great turn based RPG's. Good story.
Graphics isn't great, but who cares?

I care. They don't need to be Unreal 4 engine pretty, but they haven't changed at all. At least he could move to Unity and make them something other than fugly.

Same here. I actually have quite a few of Vogel's games, but the last one I bought was in 2008. Nowadays, it just doesn't work anymore. With Unity producing some really good turn based RPGs (Shadowrun, Wasteland 2), I don't see any excuse as to why he can't fork out the money and make something that looks less 1990-ish.

I mean, I get it, some dig this style. I did once too, when I was actually *in* the 90s. He has too much worthy competition now. Divinity OS and Wasteland 2 proved that we can have the same depth but also have the visuals to match it.

I'm really just spoiled by the turn based games we have now, I guess. Though right now, Vogel's games look like crap compared to them.

In case anyone got interested from the mention of Legacy of Kain, this game has absolutely nothing to do with the series.

It actually does, it's just online only PVP only arena crap.

Just when I thought I'd spend my gaming night clearing my backlog, this happens.

I need Gems for my 750K DPS Monk to grow too.

How can this game just now be on Kickstarter? Our site covered it a year ago. It's old as old can get. Odd.

Yeah, I really doubt "korea" is attacking them. Korea is too busy trying to keep warm while their leader stuffs his face and jerks it to granny porn.

Old news, it was circumvented. I was on [a board that shall remain nameless] and users already posted a cheat that lets you clip through the elevator, thus negating the anti-piracy lock. Pirates on this board were posting playthroughs of it where they did just that.

So in the end, Croteam accomplished nothing.

Most games have some sort of online component, and I understand you can't play anything on a console until you download the latest firmware and updates.

Only if you let it attempt to check to *see* if there are updates.

If you buy the console and never let it touch a single drop of wifi, it won't matter.

I have no idea what's left of them, but a proper open-world Stalker sequel or remake or whatever would be most splendid. Preferably one based on a third-party engine that's been thoroughly debugged.

I wouldn't even object to a cross-platform release so long as they take the PC version seriously. Now is the time (if not slightly past) given that survival games are pretty popular.


4A games (The Metro 2033/Last Light guys) said they were doing an open world version of their titles next, so you may get your wish.

You mean the Complete mod? There is no Redux mod for Stalker.


Sorry, but in this instance, you are mistaken:

http://www.moddb.com/games/stalker/downloads/redux-102-zrp-105-r10-merge

I remember very clearly, because the buzz around STALKER had been going for--it felt like years since the first screenshots were released. And then it finally came out and it was good but Redux made it excellent.

Redux by itself was the single best mod I have ever used. The attention those guys put into nailing every single thing they could in terms of accuracy ... just amazing.

If you haven't tried the first STALKER with Redux, I strongly urge you to.

EDIT: Actually, double checking that link, I'm not sure that's the right mod ... It is called "Redux" and it is for the first STALKER, but I don't recognize the name of the person who uploaded it and is apparently claiming it as theirs ... The Redux I played was put together by a team of people, had its own webpage, forum, etc.

Thanks, but no thanks. There is only one Stalker mod, and that's the "complete" one. It's regarded as the single most important addition to the series and until this day, I've never seen a Stalker fan who used any other mod other than complete. This redux nonsense is new to me.

I highly advise you remove redux and see what you're really missing:

The first STALKER with the Redux mod ... Some the BEST tactical shooting I've ever experienced, bar none. And that was just the A.I.. Loved how you could shoot an enemy but not kill them, only to have them bleed out about 30 seconds later. Same thing could happen to you as well. The gun battle in the brick farm house ... Ah, memories. Great, great game.

PS: If this isn't the nail in the coffin for West Games, I don't know what will be.

You mean the Complete mod? There is no Redux mod for Stalker.

But yeah, with Complete the handgun becomes a one shot kill weapon if you get them square in the head. Really amazing gun play. The only thing I've seen that compares is Metro 2033/Last light Redux where the heft and recoil are perfectly implemented. Guns feel so right in those games.

They spoiled me when it comes to FPSs.

News Comments > Hatred Gets Steam Redlight
58. Re: Hatred Gets Steam Redlight Dec 16, 2014, 08:46 Icewind
 
In keeping with my free market capitalist beliefs, I understand that Valve has every right to do this and, unlike the idiots already forming petitions around the web (The developer is even starting one) I know that fighting them over this is childish and a waste of time.

However,

From now on, whenever a game I want is on another service other than steam (Origin, GOG, Desura, Gamer's Gate, etc) I will buy it there instead. I will never buy another game from Steam unless it is solely exclusive to Steam. Which is highly rare nowadays with GOG gaining so much power in the industry.

I'm sure my money won't make a difference (I maybe spent a $100 or so a month on digital purchases) but I can assure you they will never get anything from me anymore.

Thought maybe Fargo would do something really different next. Didn't expect *another* Fallout style game.

Not that I'm complaining, but I was thinking he'd get experimental.

The wife bought me an Xbox1 for Christmas and let me have it early, and it's one of the kits that has AC: Unity and AC4 for free...and I haven't even bothered installing Unity. To be honest, I'm afraid. I've heard so many bad things about it that I'm wondering if it will blow up my machine and murder me.

I'm a bit confused. I didn't read the whole thing, but he starts off with "Jesus Loves You", and then says there's Aethiests and Christians who get in his face and cause him problems... which is the part that confuses me. Isn't he Christian, too? Or what is he talking about?

There are several different "degrees" of Christians.

I'm grabbing it too. Been looking at it for the longest time now and really want a popcorn shooter with no brains, just blam-blam.

For 66% off, I'll do it.

You guys Married? With Children? (cue the you-know-what theme)

Yes, but I have been "married with children" for years. The difference is that I bought a house last year where as I had been an adamant apartment renter for the previous 20 years. Houses have a way of sucking up your money and time, particularly the first few years you are in them and trying to take them from being a house to being a home.

all too familiar

Experience was opposite with me. After 15 years, that's when the money started getting sucked up by the house. Broken pipes, central air goes haywire, new roof, phone lines need replaced, mailman gets angry that the stones in the walkway are loose and insurance demands you replace them, yadda yadda...

I'm renting the place out now and live elsewhere. Got tired of it.
