    I think the word "zone" was used in Roadside Picnic and the Tarkovsky film adapted from it (Stalker), which both came out before the Chernobyl incident in 1986, so it seems unlikely that it is in reference to the exclusion zone. At least, not solely referencing that.

    Yeah the Tarkovsky-film is what I have always thought of.
    If you actually sit trough the shitty black& white beginning, it is a fascinating film too!

    Shitty black and white beginning..?

    Get out of here, STALKER!

    I'll post some samples here when I've got things up and running.

    Make every character say "Get out of here, Stalker!" all the time.

    Wasn't that one of the older builds where ALL the snorks did that and it was terrifying.

    Also i'm replaying CoP in memory, with SMRTER on. Cos i just want to die.

    But maybe 4A Games (ukrainian company... Metro 2033) will buy all rights for Stalker 2?

    When I found about about this, I instantly went and bought the SoC/CoP bundle on Steam.

    Okay I just bought CoP on the Steam sale, but I can't play it. When I open it from Steam it comes up with the splash logo and then says "X-Ray Engine 1.6 has stopped working." I tried to google but the "remedies" were all over the freaking place. Any help? I'm running a 64-bit Windows 7 machine with an ATI Radeon 6770m (mobile) card.

    Yes, but I believe if you talk to a Russian and just say "the Zone," they'll think you're referring to the gulag, not Chernobyl or anything related to it.

    If you came up to me and said "The Zone" I'd think you were talking about Stardust Speedway.

    So is stalker 2 still cancelled or...?

    The zone is unpredictable. Things that you would think should have died may yet survive in unanticipated ways.

    So, the thread needs a title update to "Stalker 2 is Undead," or perhaps "Stalker 2 is Cthulhu"?

    I don't have an emote, image macro, or youtube link to properly express how I'm feeling right now - although this general-purpose image is close enough. I mean if they come up with a release date and it's a few months from now, this will be a scene-for-scene reproduction of when GOG disappeared only to reappear with Planescape: Torment.

    I'm still waiting for the real Duke Nukem Forever too, because that thing that came out last summer doesn't cut it.

    I also go by Twinkie in some games. Add me on Steam!

    STALKER: Cthulhu would be the scariest fucking game ever. Make it happen GSC.

    I'm with Jeff Gerstmann in that an actual Duke Nukem Forever has to end with Duke hanging himself because he doesn't fit anymore. I want Duke Nukem Solid Forever, basically.

    "That one guy said that war never changes, but that other guy that said that war has changed is right. It's no longer about chicks or kicking alien ass or flushing toilets. It's just a bunch of chest-high soldier dudes hiding behind chest-high walls and earning chest-high perks. You know what I know about chests? Chicks need to shake it.

    This is my final mission, baby."

    I missed that they worked it out and are back to work:) Excellent! Stalker was one of my most memorable gaming experiences ever. Really glad to know 2 is still on track for a eventual release ( and they better not reverse again;) ). Thanks for bumping so I caught the news Zxerol:)

    It'll be an accidental hanging due to auto-erotic asphyxiation, though.

    Wishful thinking: they should license Avalanche 2 for STALKER 2. It's an awesome game engine.

    Makes you think of the Zone, eh

    Haha, yeah, I saw that preview while seeing a movie with my friend the other night. I was like "HEY THAT REMINDS ME OF STALKER" and he was like "What are you talking about" and that was that.

    Hunters have told me about the church. About the gods, and their love. But... do the gods love their creations?

    I know it's not a Stalker movie, but god damn if I didn't WISH it was!

    Maybe if I squint a little after a few sips of vodka it will be just as good as.

    For all those asking about kickstarter and funding etc. That is not the issue. We secured new investors. We were however unable to secure the IP rights from the owwer to continue with the Stalker franchise.

    Shit, this is unfortunate. RPS has a link to a dev diary. Somewhat disappointed that their new project is an MMOFPS. I'd be all for a new STALKER-like game with a different backstory/IP. Metro 2033 had some aspects that made me dislike it as a game, but a change of post-apocalyptic setting was not one of those.

    I'm trying to come up with some witty Stalker quote to describe how sad this is, but I give up. Here's some of the guitar songs from SoC instead.
