    Yeah, I have been playing Clear Sky too. Nights are way too dark though, this is what the game looks like with both nightvision and flashlight on

    And it's just horrible. Again a game with so much potential that got wasted.

    Purchased Max Payne and the new Colonization from Steam. The Steam Store and Paypal are a horrible, horrible combination, particularly given that prices are in US Dollars, so I always think "ooh, it's actually cheaper than what it claims :(

    I'm getting Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl sometime next week. I was considering buying Clear Sky, but heard it was not quite up to SoC standards, and it was extremely buggy. Anyway, if I enjoy SoC, there is a good chance I will purchase Clear Sky sometime in the future as well. :) Could you spare a review, maybe? Just to get a feeling for the game?

    I wiped out every Duty member from Garbage yet Freedom won't capture their posts. Uninstalled this buggy mess, maybe I'll give it another try if a mod or the patch v1.5.96804968 fixes it. Didn't GSC learn anything from SoC. Oh and every time I entered Agroprom through the southern entrance the game crashed

    Just got Multiwinia via Steam, and having lots of fun with it.

    And can anyone explain to me why I pay 23€ for a 19,99$ game ?

    Seems like the bugness-level varies alot from computer to computer on this game. I had a handful of random crashes but that was pretty much it. Didnt see any ingame bugs either. So i cant really complain.
    Similar with SoC really, it ran pretty good.

    Seems to be a bit of a lottery with Stalker. Both Stalker games have been stable and relatively bug free on my computer. The only noticable bug I got in Clear Sky was with a side mission in the Cordon where I had to talk to a particular stalker and help him kill some dogs or something, but his dialogue just kept repeating and the dogs never spawned/turned up. Other than that it's been clear sailing, more or less.

    I had some probs with bugs in clear sky, yeah it's a real mess, and accuracy for rifles tend to suck poop. Luckily i reworked it a bit, and now the values are back at shadow of chernobyl. :D
