I don't know all that much about STALKER. I have heard it is a cross between 1st person shooting and RPG. I have heard you can buy/upgrade weapons and the game is non-linear. You choose what you do. Is this true? Man it would be cool to see a random generator engine in STALKER, like the ones they use in Diablo 2 + Xpax for weapons/armour/items :)

Basically the game is as unlinear as you will get. Infact, the AI is completely independent of the player, meaning life in the game world goes on regardless of you being there. Other Stalkers trade, kill, fight raise and lower prices, without you even having to be there.

That's why debugging the game is taking so long. :beer:

Wow! That is so incredibly cool. No game has done this before! So say your on one side of Chernobyl, and theres another NPC stalker on the other side of Chernobyl, they'll be blasting away getting levels as you will, and eventually you may meet up! Man that is cool. Im going to have to have my new rig built soon to run it :D

No, there probably will be the standard 32 person limit depending on the server. The game is primarily a first person shooter RPG, if that makes any sense to you. It's major focus is on the single player from what I have read the last four months...

Well the single player is an RPG that just sounds amazing, but as for the MP all I have seen on that is deathmatch. So ppb just a standard FPS MP then. But after having played the MP beta.... WOW that was cool. great online shooter, Counter Strike in a gloomy and scary areas ... but better :D
