The head bobbing annoyed the hell out of me at first, but I got used to it. The thing that angers me is the fact that the weapons are really inaccurate at long ranges and even medium range (with exception of the scoped weapons, I would presume) and you can single-fire with weapons at people's chest with no effect. Most of my health is drained because I have to get in close to kill people, but when I do, I end up erasing entire groups with spray. Oh, and is it me or is non-pistol ammo hard to find? I have 1,000 rounds of pistol ammunition saved up yet the same bits of non-pistol ammo I had were used quickly on human enemies ( I've yet to encounter mutants.. o: ) because I've only found 50 or so rounds tops. Yes, I'm searching all the corpses too.

It also seems my game has fucked up. The guy at the tunnel who thanks you for saving his life part.. I go down the tunnel as it says, I clear the area of rival gang members, and then it tells me to go back to him. So, I do. I go up the ladder and the guy says 'thanks for saving my life, blah blah.. We need you to go down this tunnel. Follow me, I'll show you the way". Then, he walks a few feet to the left, into a tree, then walks back and tells me to go back down. If I do, the area is clear, and there's nothing to do. Upon going back up, he repeats this bullshit non-stop.

another thing i found out! the steam version is 1.0005 ! not 6! because THQ will not release the patch on steam because the developer had a falling out, so it's impossible to play online.

It's not buggy in general. Obviously, you fucked something up with those 'mods'. Also, you forgot to read the forums because Valve stated that they would be giving people who bought Stalker recently new keys so that they can upgrade to .blahblah06 for multiplayer some time this week.

I recall one of the tricks with mods being that you had to trick Stalker into thinking it was a different version - this is the source of saves getting fucked up. The mod changes the version and it wrecks saves as their made.

It's a command in one of the configuration or ltx files.

Do some Googling around and see what you can find on the subject.

Edit: and I wanna load up FRAPS and try a little shooting video. More for kicks than anything.

sure, they might be giving CD keys out, but not the 1.0006 patch not valve's fault, however, THQ will not release it

Oh yeah. That's a Controller. They, uh, "grab" your brain. Don't let 'em get line of sight on you.

In Oblivion Lost, they can also control NPCs and turn them into zombies.

Shootin' some Bandit motherfuckers at the carpark.

Scoped AK-74 Rapid. Strelok's gun!

Anyone who's finished the game might be able to appreciate the humor of that.

Running across the entire fucking map to get back to the start for quests is going to be a bitch. Yeah.. as for the Controller and such.. I'm too pussy to even go down there; still building up the courage.

the Controller popped up when it was the end of the level, dunno if it spawned or it was there the whole time xD. there's also a BloodSucker down there, but only if you go a certain route. bloodsuckers also cloak. :O

Controllers are easy as hell if you toss a F1/pineapple grenade at them. It usually kills them in one shit if its close to a Controler.

It's there for everyone, as is the bloodsucker. I just sat in the starting town for thirty minutes waiting for the night to turn to day. That is the epitome of total-wuss. Yeah, I know the bloodsuckers cloak too. That's perhaps the number one reason I don't want to go wandering. I'll be skipping through the brush, bolt in hand and.. good game.. from nowhere.

Oblivion Lost sometimes has Controllers and Bloodsuckers on the surface, but usually only at night.

Also, good news about Bloodsuckers: their eyes glow. Just unload between the glowy bits.

I should record a video of OL's nights... Bridget would never download it.
