post #161 of 5939
Just finished Clear Sky and ShoC (w/ Complete 2009) in that order on Veteran in the last 2-3 weeks, got my 5850, and will grab Call of Pripyat sometime this week.

These games can be brutal. I had to rely on every single scrap of food and bandages looted from bodies for health in the last segments of ShoC, and I had to dumb down the difficulty in CS during that very last stretch of the NPP with all the emission shaking, bullet spraying Monolith guys, and dieing too many times from two shots.

If those two games have taught me anything to expect in Call of Pripyat's ending, it's that there will likely be zombie-like masses of Monolith guys suited up in exoskeletons for the end game. That and I realized that I, for some strange reason, prefer taking down those beastly geared Monolith soldiers in a bullet eating Seva Suit and Green Ecologist Suit. Guess I just like a challenge.

I gatta say......I prefer the environment of Clear Sky over ShoC. It's a tad too barren for my tastes, but has better environment obviously. Clear Sky spoiled me with it's faction war (buggy, but cool), artifact and upgrade system (everything is junk in ShoC), and environment (expected more stalkers in ShoC). From Brain Scorcher to end game in ShoC, it felt like there were more Monolith soldiers in that segment of the game than stalkers in the whole zone.....

It'd be a crime not to be a member of this club.

What settings were you playing with? I might want to have a go with them, just a bit more conservatively.
I haven't messed/altered any of those.....

So is this one a new game, or is it like Clear Sky from a different squad or whatever? I'm thinking of getting it, but not sure if its worth it yet. If the deal is still going on, I'm eligible for the $20 deal.

So much better than Clear Sky, definitely a new game. It takes place after SoC.

No, it is correctly before and after. Look closely at how much money I have. That is before and after selling them.

That special green one is the Oasis artifact, you have to go through a puzzle to get it. Oh yeah and the key, that's... A key.

Eh, I'm thinking I might take the plunge. I played a small bit of SoC...probably around 10-20 minutes of it and it was just slow to me.

I've started playing it yesterday. The gameplay is pretty cool, but some of the mechanics are like from 2005 (e.g. crouching). Also I hate how the guy is loosing breath after running no more then 50 meters. I smoke about pack a day and barely ever move, and can do better than that.
