S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Movie

A new 116 MB S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl movie is now available for download, footage from press events held in February 2004 showing off more of the survival gameplay in GSC Game World's upcoming hot-zone first-person shooter. The clip can be found on 3D Gamers, ActionTrip, Boomtown (registration required), Filerush (torrent), FileShack, GameCenter.cz, Gamer's Hell, GameStar.Hu, and Worthplaying. For the bandidth-impaired, a smaller QuickTime-format version of the movie can be found on the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Website and mirrored on 3D Gamers, and there are also shrunken DivX-format versions on Tiscali Games.

Thanks Syntarsus, that's exactly what I meant with my somewhat short comment.

The reason why I'm so disappointed is that 2 years ago I've talked to the STALKER developers at the GC: there was no talk about monsters, the gameplay was ought to be somewhat Operation Flashpoint-like.

For me Monsters stand for the point in the game development process where all the eye candy game engine was finished and maxed out, leaving a "uh... sooo we need some kind of story and uh... characters in the game - let's take some monsters!". Addtitionally monsters don't force the designers to put effort in KI: no one knows how monsters behave so no one can complain they're unrealistic. Usually they come in hordes, growl at you and are just big cannon fodder.

There are some "monster games" I love: Unreal (the Skarji!), HL,... uhm.. that's it. HL2 of course will be great. Doom3 OTOH leaves me cold: just a graphics/engine demo like D1 and D2.
