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 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, 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...

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...

Tom's Hardware claims to have been watching STALKER since its announcement in 2001, back when it was known as Oblivion Lost. We don't recall this, so we'll take his word for it - since he's good for his word. But now that the rest of the gaming world is keeping a close eye on the project, can Tom ad...

From the floors of the UK Gamestars Live show, come a couple of clips of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. (the first-person shooter with the pain-in-the-ass-to-type name). The two clips show off some outdoor action and a couple of weapons. One of which is mighty impressive, in the size department. The format is thoro...

IGN got some hands-on time with the upcoming first-person Half-Life-like shooter by THQ. They only got to touch the multiplayer aspects of the game, but it seems to have given them a good sense of the graphics and weapons. Some of the Counter-Strike "champions" are contributing to the game, so you h...

STALKER is slowly climbing our most-wanted list. The rumblings for the game began awhile ago, and not many of us paid too much attention. But as more shots emerge, and more details become clear, the title shines brighter. It would go too far to call it a Half-Life 2 contender, perhaps, but it's not ...

Our last post on S.T.A.L.K.E.R was a bit of a bloody mess, with yours truly doing a smashingly bad job researching the piece. Calling Chernobyl a part of Russia was mistake number one. We won't get into the others now. Well, having watched all 14 minutes of these clips, it's a pleasure to inform you...
