A German S.T.A.L.K.E.R. community has gone on strike, citing a lack of patch support from publisher THQ as their reason. The long-running fansite Oblivion Lost promises to hold the strike until THQ releases patches for every localization territory that actually work.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. launched with more than its fair share of bugs, but teams worked to patch the most critical errors as quickly as possible. The first patch squashed 68 bugs but rendered previous save games useless. Kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it?
While they're at it, let's move to strike the periods from S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s name. Boy is that a pain to type.
