No trannies in the trailer!
Metacritic 5.5/10 - buying is not recommended - the game has failed to live up to the legacy of its great predecessor (buying is also not recommended - although considered by some people to be a masterpiece, this game is very old, and you won't like it), while at the same time viciously promoting toxic trends set up in motion by the (debunked) "Gamergate" white supremacist (Nazi) conspiracies.

Looks great. I played the first one back in the days and liked it, even though I can't remember much, lol. There was some annoying bug that made finishing the game a pain in the ass IIRC.

If it's as fun as the original was, it'll do pretty well. Fingers crossed they don't shoot themselves in the foot before then, though.

It looks really good. I heard they are using Unreal 4 so it shouldn't be the mess that the first STALKER game was. It was a fun game but even in 2007 it looked dated. It looked like it was from 2003 or 2004. The lighting was really good though and still kind of is. Though with new games STALKER's lighting is aging. Down in that tunnel with that red light spinning about that looked really amazing.

I played STALKER SOC a few times but never finished it. It's on my to do list. That and Call of Pripyat which is also really good. Great atmosphere in both games. I use the Complete Mod for both games to smooth out the rough edges. I never played vanilla STALKER and doubt I ever will.

I have Clear Sky but I didn't care for it much. Some people like and many don't. It's described as the black sheep of the STALKER series. I don't tell people people to play or not to play it like some STALKER fans do. I just tell people try if you want, but I didn't like it. Also pick it up during a sale. There is a version of the Complete Mod for it as well. Though Call of Pripyat and Clear Sky probably need it the least.

STALKER is really good slav jank. It's up there with the Witcher games.

Atomic Heart looks like it will be good as well, at least it looks that way. Like a Russian Bioshock or Prey 2017. Prey 2017 was just Bioshock in space.

You're not supposed to play it without the mods. Or at least that's what I've heard.

I still remember trying the incredibly broken and glitchy multiplayer with a close friend of mine, who is now dead.

STALKER was a really great moment in my life. This news brings me apprehensive joy.

You guys should try Anomaly if you haven’t, stand alone mod (you don’t need to own any of the games) that boosts graphical fidelity and combines all of the maps throughout the series into one big zone. It’s sandbox-y with dynamic quests so it might feel aimless to some but I love it.


All I would want for Stalker 2 is improved AI and ecosystem mechanics.

I was playing misery 2.0 for COP but I halfassedly modded out the repair feature and made it so any repair item repaired the guns back up to 100 percent. It was probably the most fun I ever had with Stalker. I loved all the unique guns they added to the game. I love how crazy the shootouts start getting when you go up against the monolith.

Thanx a million for the tip! Anomaly is the best Stalker mod I've ever played. Seriously good.

Prey 2017 was just Bioshock in space.
Fuck you

It wasn't

Bioshock sucks dicks

I played it again recently and even the story, which I remembered being the only saving grace, is just jewish neurosis and plotholes

Whereas Prey is the actual spiritual successor to System Shock 2 because it's an immersive sim

You might think it "sucks dick" but it was a really good game and a lot of people thought so. Matter of fact it's still seen as one of the best games from that period.

I played it as well and I don't get what you mean by Jewish neurosis. All I saw was the game bashing Libertardians really hard. Which doesn't matter to me cause I don't like Libertardianism anyway. As far as the plot holes? Lots of really good movies, games and books have plot holes. It seems like you are just grasping at straws for reasons to trash a game cause it was compared to another game it's very similar to.

I also have Prey 2017 and I played the original Prey. Prey and Bioshock are very similar. Which is why I said Prey is just Bioshock in space. If you didn't like that one you aren't going to like this either, Bioshock is just System Shock but underwater instead of in space.

From what I understand, Prey2017 was kind of an underappreciated masterpiece. The narrative and characters just kind of seemed super uninteresting to me so it's no wonder it didn't succeed commercially. What are your thoughts on that game?

It's bad enough we have to tolerate your stupid opinions elsewhere on this forum

You're ridiculously wrong for a change

The things Bioshock and Prey have in common is that nearly everyone is already dead (and you get backstory via audiologs, although Bioshock is kind of sparse IMO) and the hacking minigame sucks.

The gameplay of Bioshock is more akin to Clive Barker's Undying (except you can't shoot and do magic at the same time and the weapons suck), the graphics are goofy, the "moral choice" is cringe, the story is dumb and, with the exception of a chink, all movers and shakers of Rapture are kikes, and the antagonist is a fraudster that gets crucified

Prey got a bad rap because it was interpreted as an FPS, which it is, but it's also an immersive sim (due to the fact that it's a FPS franchise reboot and was pooly marketed). You can lean.

There's a real sense of scale and scope to what you're doing and participating in.

One of the strongest points is exploration with real verticality (you can mantle) which blends well with the combat. Since you're resource-contrained for the most part, you have to choose whether an engagement is actually worth the risk/cost or it's a better choice evade, hide, or run away. The enemies respawn so you can never really relax.

The narrative is fascinating but I can't get into it without spoiling some really fun details (which will probably take a replay to notice). The game as a whole tends to linger, particularly towards the last act but it does give you choices that feel like they have some gravitas and this is reflected in the ending.

I really like the enemy, the alien life form called Typhon, they feel like an actual threat like the annelids from System Shock 2.

Between Bioshock and Prey I'll take the latter as "spiritual successor to System Shock 2"

And I have to tolerate everyone's stupid boomer tier opinions as well. The difference is I don't whine about it. Like I said in another thread, I just tell people their shit is stupid and move on. I don't sit around whining about like some weak fag. Having to put up with differing opinions is part of the fun of using a forum. Unless you just want a echo chamber/hug box like some kind of leftist SJW.

I am not ridiculously wrong. I am 100% right. Bioshock and Prey are similar. Similar does not mean exactly the same. But they are similar enough.

I have had the game since 2017. I bought it just a few days after release for full price. I watched a few reviews about it and decided to give it a shot. So I did my part to try and support interesting good games. It was one of the better games to get released in 2017.

It's a good game. I highly suggest it, especially if you liked any of the Bioshock games or the System Shock games.

It didn't sell well unfortunately. It also wasn't really marketed well either. But things can still spread by word of mouth especially with the internet. But that didn't happen. So there will probably never be a Prey 2.

The only complaint I have is there were objects in the game that looked like mirrors but there were no reflections. Which I found kind of odd since we had reflective mirrors in games all the way back in the 90's with Duke Nukem 3D. Also I found the aliens to be kind of disappointing. Other than their ability to take the shape of objects in the game world and doing jump scares they aren't that interesting. They are just black blobs that run around. Some of them are humanoid in appearance though so at least that changes it up some.

But I didn't finish it. It's one of those games I bought years ago that just collected dust in my steam library. That doesn't mean the game is bad. Just I was playing other games and lost track of that one.

They story is really good. I also liked the retro aesthetic of the space station in the game. I like games that combine old tech with newer tech, which is one of the things I liked about Fallout 1 and 2. Vacuum tubes, old green computer monitors and big magnetic tape reels.

If you haven't played it I say buy it and give it a shot. You can get it right now on Steam for $12 till August the 24th.

The thing that I really like about it is the potential its tech has for so much more. Derivative games about becoming objects and fighting other objects in a hide n' seek cat and mouse melee or just shooting new platforms in an FPS perspective perspires respectability.

The narrative and multicultural people mixed with a "this is all a dream" narrative were too offputting though. All of the gutter shit narrative buyers are not looking for
