So that’s why hell has frozen over…

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. has gone gold. Whoopee and stuff. After 6 years of development do I care? No, not really. I was really hyped up and interested in it about 2 or 3 years ago when Edge magazine ran a bunch of features on it but now in a post Gears of War world it’s going to have to be absolutely amazing.

Prey took a gazillion years to appear and it’s unique features over all the floods of FPS’s we’ve endured over the years were that you could walk on ceilings and fly around like a ghost. Oh and that you were a Cherokee. Great!

And this is why I don’t hold out much hope for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Games that are in development for years and years are usually a big disappointment.

However, I will probably still play it, see what all the fuss is about :).

Tsk tsk, puak. I for one can’t wait to get my hands on STALKER. It’s creepy, post-apocalyptic, and (hopefully) it’ll run on my incredibly outdated hardware configuration. Score!

Damn it, Paul! It’s not April 1! WTF are you talking about? Wait, what’s that headline on Gamespot…

P.S. your little spam protection (What’s 7+8?) is a nice deterrent not only for spambots but also for drunk comments.

Biff, it’s been hyped to death. I’ve read numerous features on it and everytime the scope of the game was shrunk down. I’ll be surprised if it’s much different from every other FPS.

Paul, that’s because I clearly had not had enough to drink. :P In which case you should try something a little more complicated, like “What is e^(i*pi*k)?” and set it to choose common numbers for k like 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, etc.

I didn’t come up with the math spam thingy, Gom mentioned it on his blog a while back.
