S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl goes G.O.L.D.

Delayed once to avoid the holiday rush. Delayed a second time to add some spit and polish. Since 2003 this poor little game has been repeatedly shoved on the back burner and ignored. But now, according to publisher THQ, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl has wrapped up development is is sitting a...

S.T.A.L.K.E.R finally gets a date. Of sorts.

When a needlessly cryptic countdown appears on a website built to promote a specific title, we naturally assume that it's counting down to a release date. But without an official confirmation, we're a bit hesitant to call the clock currently running on the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl website...

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. actually getting released?

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl fell into a nice little category along the likes of Duke Nukem Forever in being an oft-delayed (yes, that does say 2004) game that many assumed would never see the light of day (as well as rumors of a full-on cancellation). Announced first in 2001 and sportin...

STALKER clip compares the game to reality

If this clip is any indication STALKER will be one hell of a looker. The 55 MB Xvid file shows off real footage of Chernobyl , and compares it to the in-game graphics. According to the site, Oblivion-Lost, the incredible effect is due to chroma keying. While we could see the transition take place, ...

STALKER beta test soon?

A little sketchy, but apparently a Russian games magazine has run a competition to win reserved spots in the beta for STALKER. This has led some folks to speculate that a public beta is going to happen very soon. STALKER is due in a couple of months. Plenty of time to iron out all the bugs. *coug...

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. shots wallpaper-worthy

Oblivion Lost as posted some high-rez shots of STALKER. They take a long time to view, but a couple of them are worth it. Which ones? Well, we'd check out #s 2 and 5. They're bright, outdoor shots that really show off the care to detail these guys are going for. The shots also continue to look a lot...

Gawk at these STALKER shots

Some very nice screenshots of STALKER have been posted on Gamers Hell. The 35 pics lay out an eerie scene of dismay and decay. It reminds me of my neighborhood, actually. The impressive round-up just makes us hunger for the game more. It has a certain Half-Life 2 feel to it. Could it be as good? Dou...

Worthplaying gives us more STALKER

Worthplaying has posted the latest STALKER game clip. Now that Half-Life 2 is safely in the annals of history, we all look to the future for the games that want its crown. STALKER shows a lot of promise, with a great looking engine, a story that sounds freaky and a dedicated developer who has made s...

STALKER delayed again

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 qua...

STALKER screenshots are creepy as a King novel

I'm reading The Stand by Stephen King, and these screenshots remind me of the desolate, post-apocalyptic world he paints. The abandoned buildings, the vast landscapes, filled with nothing. Creepy stuff. It just looks like the kind of world you'd want to be armed in. Luckily, STALKER will arm you to...
