Stalker series was 1 of a kind. Thats the sad truth. Theres no other game to combine FPS action, with RPG inventory, such a tough game just to survive, with such a good game scenario, with sandbox options, horror game parts, real life situations and locations, a novel and a movie inspired main theme, real global-sized nuclear accident, and above all... such a huge and overwelming community response. Especially the last 1 (the community response) is not repeatable, I believe. Can you imagine Survarium comin out with the # of glitches SoC had? Whos gonna mod and "fix" that game? Is it ever possible that the gaming community is going to "forgive" Vostok Games for something like that?
But that was, maybe, the 1 and only thing that made Stalker what it was.
I remember the first day I tried to play SoC unpatched.... What a mistake (and experience)....... And I remember my surprise when I discovered the modding community behind it!!!! My response was to start a new patched/modded game, start "fightin" the glitches/bugs and -litterally- build a new rig (!!!) just to play SoC with no hardware inefficiencies!
I think it all comes down to us the players. If we want to be optimists, maybe we ll see the whole project in a good light. But on the other hand... how are these guys going to immitate the Stalker atmosphere? is it possible? How is the community going to react to the game?
Stalker series was a potent drug. Can another one substitute?

Through the years of SoC, CS, CoP my personal experience was game-devastating. I stoped playing GTA. I threw all the CoD dvds to the closet. I forgot FarCry completely. Unexpectedly I lost interest in my all-time favorite- FallOut!! BioShock and the rest of the new ones didnt make any impression anymore. It even had influence on other style games like Total War and CoH, which I left alone for quite a while. I just dont see how another game is goin to manage something like that. To me is non-repeatable (I repeat).
Of course I ll support due to respect for the team behind it, but let me be a pessimist guys.... (besides the fact that I insist that we are naive to disregard the... investors intentions).

Does not look too bad, actually. Familiar visual style, nearly the same setting, stalkers, factions, artifacts. Sans loneliness and meditation.

I bet the game will be too crowded and will ruin the atmosphere, like in CoP. Survival horror fps should be more sp than online type of game. Besides, randoms always have an awesome chance of ruining games by doing dumb things. If they wanna really do an awesome and atmospheric game revolving around survival horror, they should start with sp and see how it goes. Online games need alot of diversity to stand out and if you don't nail it right, you'll screw the game up alot more, imo.

Survarium, isn't Stalker, not is it trying to be like Stalker. Since mmos are meant to played with others of course you won't get that feeling of isolation.

The gaming market is mostly geared towards multiplay/mmos so I highly doubt we will ever get stalker 2 or any other real good single player fps from other devs.

It obviously is trying to be like Stalker. It's a survival game set in Chernobyl area with guns, factions, and artifacts. It looks the same and is made by the same people.

One of those outfits they showed looks a hell of a lot like a Clear Sky uniform. Is it based on real gear?

Beside the fact Survarium is a MMO as opposed to Stalker's Single Player, I'm struggling to spot the difference between the two!

And to refer to the TOZ-34 as a shotgun "fans of our previous games are familiar with"? An innocent blurring of the edges, or kicking a little irradiated sand in Sergei's face?

Looks like it's coming along nicely, but far more like Stalker than I expected. Now if they could just work on the term "Scavenger"... needs to be punchier... shorter... perhaps keeping the same first and last letters...

Everything about Survarium is Stalker-like and I do have decent hopes for it, but the MMO part just doesn't make sense. Why did they decide to go with it is beyond me. Having 20 guys on a map at once will surely ruin the atmosphere of it. It'll either feel like a big arena or like crowded WoW town map. This is just an attempt to stand out and be unique, rather than try to be a solid game, which doesn't require MMO elements in the first place. I'm very skeptical this game will live up to a real Stalker game, or even be as good as CoP.
