    There's another way through the tunnel - don't just charge through, but search the corpse outside and you'll get an update in your PDA about the anomaly there, as well as how best to avoid it... Be patient, essentially. Reply 0

    By the way, I'm sure this will come out eventually, but if anyone out there DOES speak Russian and English, some of the incidental chatter will actually provide background story, information, etc., but none of it is game critical and you don't actually miss anything by not being bi-lingual...

    As I'm lead to believe it here's an example: there is a helicopter circling fairly soon after the game begins, and you overhear the radio chatter in Russian. I believe that they actually say "I've spotted him, shall we move in for the kill now?" to which a response is given "No, not now, we'll get him later". Now as to who that relates to and who might be speaking I'm not going to tell, but it's interesting that the military already know something about someone...

    Although there are quite a few accents in the game, they are not too hard to understand. Besides, all key mission and game information is also presented in text format, either through on-screen pop-ups, dialogue print outs, or failing all of that the in-game PDA is very comprehensive.

    Nope, no demo for STALKER, but there is a MP Beta ongoing at present.

    Regarding performance, you obviously get the best out of the game with a kick-arse PC, but there's a huge amount of scalability in the options.

    And new missions and obvjectives are not only highlighted in the PDA, they're also generally communicated via on-screen text and voice.

    This is simply raw b-roll (i.e. unedited footage) that was given out at THQ's recent Gamers' Day event in San Francisco. Reply 0

    Yes, you can equip artifacts onto your belt (5, currently) that give you certain RPG-esque stat benefits.

    Yes, you can wear various armour types that also convey stat benefits.

    As with any game, the more RAM, the better!

    RPG/side missions - although completing these won't boost any stats, they will inevitably give you certain rewards, be they faction advancements, better equipment, more cash for trading, etc...
