    The starting pistol is enough for radscorpions, though :D
    Anyway, that kind of difficulty doesn't really motivate me. I'm an old fart with a full time job and too many hobbies, and video games are the least of those. Not going to spend my time on getting frustrated with overly hard enemies and game mechanics when I have other shit to do. Maybe the mod's awesome (a lot of Stalker mods are), but it's just not for me.

    Heh heh, fair enough.

    IMO, you should give it another try, just try to not fight mutants until you get some nice stuff.

    I actually had the same situation. Remember what it was... either snork or some big pig mutant thing... started the game, everything is pitch black, pistol is completely useless and enemies 10 feet away killed me in but a few hits. If you experience this right after starting the game... then that's just really bad game design. No thanks to that.

    Thing is, this fucking snork was 20 m from the spawn point in the middle of the road. It's not like I had much of a choice unless I'd want to sneak off-road, which also contains a shit-ton of mutants that also kill me immediately. As Lexx said, that's just bad game design and this kind of difficulty doesn't do it for me. I don't wanna be the guy, I don't play Dark Souls and I just don't need my games to punish me for playing them. Ain't got no time to git gud, and honestly, I barely play video games at all these days, so if I do play one, I won't waste my time on dying and reloading when I could be having fun.

    The Misery spawns have varying levels of difficulty.

    Assaulter spawns in a safe place, the other two in very dangerous places.

    Luckily a skilled player can use the sprint button to evade foes~

    Again, sure, it's all possible. But I don't care much for these types of games. These days I don't have fun dying and reloading. I'm sure the mod is awesome and whatnot, but it's not for me. To me, it's annoying and pointless. If I want a challenge, I'll play Bach's cello suites or try to play Spawn of Possession on guitar. Beating video games that are hard for being the sake of being hard just isn't for me.

    That's fair, everyone has preferences.

    Misery is indeed pretty bullshit in some aspects, technically its 'fair', its just that 'fair' when you start with under-tiered gear is unfair. XD

    How about vanilla?

    Vanilla was awesome. After the massive disappointment that was Clear Sky (still holding a grudge against GSC for pulling that shit off) CoP was actually quite nice. Still not what SoC should have been, but it was fun.
    I'm still hoping that some day the 1934 build will be truly cleaned up and finished...

    Sorry, 1935. Doesn't look like anyone's really doing anything with it, though, except for the Oblivion Lost (Remake?) mod.

    Old version of Stalker, one of the most complete builds pre-release. Has quite a few differences and feels more open world, like they intended to do in the beginning.

    Ahhhh, SoC.

    I haven't had the chance to play that, only CoP. XD

    IIRC isn't Lost Alpha based on that?

    yeah the spawns in misery are quite frustrating ( remember spawning close to a pack of pseudo dogs ( thank you game to help me face my fear of dogs by pushing me into a clusterfuck of dogs who ended up eating me ) )
    the snorks are relativly easy to deal with , you wait he jump and you crouch , repete the operation until reaching the safety of human company

    Snorks in Misery are pretty fucking hard to dodge, I still think they're the worst mutant.

    I can easily handle a fucking giant, or Chimera.

    But a pack of snorks? Fuck that.

    for me the snorks are the least scary of mutants , the chimera is a pain in the ass , the bloodsuckers well usually when i see one i say a big nope , and return to base gathering what left from my courage and back with a pille o ammunition were i use the common tactic of blind fire in hope of killing it
    the snorks a good shotgun can easily deal with them and they have a little time of recovery after there attack usually a good timed grenade is a garantee kill

    It's one thing to torch a town, and a whole different thing to rape a bunch of women and even a little girl, which is exactly what the mod showcases.

    That wasn't necessary at all. Do I care about a little girl being raped? Not really. But when you add it to reinforce the idea that Legion = Worse than Hitler, it annoys me. Slavery is one thing, raping childs and killing them is a whole different thing.

    Guess the butthurt user is someone else.

    So weird. XD

    I find Bloodsuckers are pretty easy to kill, and they give you good food in their flesh.

    Wait, what? What is this? I can't remember anything about child rape. Did Redesigned did this, or?

    STALKER mods in general. Even the aesthetic ones, just ruin the mood/vibe.

    Either make it too hard or too easy. I enjoy stalker for its exploration and atmosphere not arbitrary difficulty.
