STALKER, the first-person shooter set in a post-apocalyptic Chernobyl, has just entered the long line of AAA titles that get delayed. The first delay was, allegedly, market-based, with the publisher wanting to avoid competing with holiday titles (sounds smart). Oddly, the second delay is due to quality assuarance. The developer wants some more time to make the game as perfect as they can. You won't get any complaints from us. We can wait for perfection.
