Of course, there could be other issues with the presentation - note the inability to master "smart quotes".

I couldn't hang around it when I was "there" because of all the anomalies sparking around it.

That sounds like a story that needs to be told.


It's from the S.T.A.L.K.E.R series of computer games (call of pripyat I'm guessing?) It's essentially the same as Fallout 3 but set in the Chernobyl area, and about 50 times harder.

Call of Pripyat was the last game in the series, but that is correct. It can be pretty difficult... I started a new game a few days ago on "Hell" difficulty after not playing it for few years and then remembered why I never used that setting. They were working on a 360 version of the game, but I think the company imploded for some reason.

I've played that game so much I feel like I've "been there".

In all fairness, that game is supposed to be spot on in terms of exteriors. Obviously the interiors have been modified to make the game, well, a game - but I believe this was the game where they used surveys and historical documents to get it right.

I thought User had been to Chernobyl, and hadn't bothered to tell us in the past 15 years.

Its a fisheye view camera. That will over accentuate the speed of the vehicle. I suspect its going slower than we think.

That's cool. I liked it earlier when the first ape to finally touch it would reach out and then dash back, kicking his feet at the ground.

And you get that nice critical bonus for a surprise attack.

But you have to follow it up with a melee weapon. I suspect the archer lacked one.

Don't be that guy! Have a dagger at least.

He probably had a knife, but didn't have it hot-keyed.

Yup, that's why it takes balls . . and be sure you've got something to hide behind.
Also, no moose is going to stand there like that! If he sees a human he's leaving.
P.S. A front shot is not a good idea. A broadside is much better.
