S.T.A.L.K.E.R. to be sequelized, expect the next one by 2094

It appears that S.T.A.L.K.E.R., the wonderfully flawed postapocalyptic action/rpg, is getting a sequel. PrimoTechnology (no relation to Primatech Paper) recently announced that thanks to "positive reaction[s] to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. all over the world," the franchise will see a few more titles in the next few years.

The exact nature of these titles will not be revealed until E3, but it's comforting to know that this ambitious-but-flawed game will get another go-around. If Primotech is manufacturing a sequel, one has to hope for two main things: firstly, that the game's major shortcomings (namely controls, weapon damage, graphics, useless sidequests that give you pointlessly weak weapons an armor, an awful PDA, and lack of diversity in missions) will be fixed, and secondly, that it won't take another six years to make. 

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was D.I.S.A.P.P.O.I.N.T.I.N.G* on many levels, but the game had some serious potential; it's great to know that the Primotech team will have a chance to iron out all those flaws and turn the game into what it should have been. Assuming they admit that the game is flawed, anyway -- it'd be a shame to see a sequel turn out exactly the same as the first.

*That joke has been done before, hasn't it?

I've discovered a new go-to game for relaxing

I play videogames for many reasons. Sometimes, I play for the story -- the chance to visit new worlds and live out someone else's life. Other times, it's the sense of competition I find most alluring, or the chance to master ...more

Titan Souls is my PAX Prime 2014 game of show

Confession time: I'm pretty out of the loop when it comes to the indie game scene. I love me some Nidhogg, Samurai Gunn, and Crawl, but it's not uncommon for me to have only heard about these games just before release or late...more

Paradigm is a point-'n'-click game starring sloths and mutants

While adventure games are doing as well as ever, there's still not too many that hark back to the classic era games like Day of the Tentacle. They used to be really weird! Jacob Janerka's Paradigm seems to emulate that style...more
