Gentlemen, I want you head tomorrow and think for yourselves. Ignore the posters, the empty promises and the massive advertising campaigns. Pay no attention to the half-truths and lofty ambitions. When you go outside tomorrow, I want you to have one thought on your mind, and one thought only…Chicken or beef for lunch?

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    For anyone interested in checking it out, I found this yesterday. Apparently back in 2009, GSC released a build of Stalker to the public, so these guys took it, and rebuilt the rest of the game from the SDK, screenshots, videos etc, they also included some custom maps they built. The download is 4 parts, the first 3 parts are 2g, the last part is 150mb. Their pipeline caps at 2.7m/s, but altogether the download took me about 20-30 minutes.

    If you’ve never played Stalker, I sincerely urge you to check it out, it’s basically the Dark Souls of FPS’, it has 7 different endings which differs depending on which factions you pick up etc…

    Enjoy!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      No! You evil, evil person.

      • Brian Murphy

        Stalker is so much fun though! How can you not try it out…it’s free!
