    GSC Games has returned, but they are not developing a new Stalker game.

    Instead they're creating a sequel to their classic RTS Cossacks, called Cossacks III.

    Considering the first two Cossacks games are some of the most well-regarded RTS games around, I suppose this is reason for celebration.

    Considering last I heard of them was the post-Stalker 2 cancellation and all the insane rumors that sprouted as a result of that, yeah. This is really big that they're actually working on something with potential.

    I'm not mad ad them for not starting new Stalker. There's enough mods and new are coming (like Wormwood aka Misery done right) and some standalone inspired titles like Survenge, which started with ShoC ported to CryEngine (still some alpha float around on fishy soviet sites).
    Not to mention previous fishy attempts done by imposters who think console devkits can be easly downloaded from torrents.

    At the time they were unique. In a good way. Hopefully they won't shit on the series although I doubt the old employees are still there.

  12. IIRC they were fun. Cheesy in some way, though.

    Wheeee, my favourite strategy games in my mid teens. Loved the era, and the AoE gameplay with added realism

    Cossacks was one of my favorite games in midschool. If they manage to recreate even half of the charm it would be awesome.

    I think I read somewhere that eventually they will do Stalker2. New cossacks is cool though.

    I don't see the point. This doesn't look better than the original game, it's trying very hard to be HD and that's it. All the original need is a multiplayer fix and a bunch of more missions if you are mad enough to have done the others.

    what? This is a RTS all they're doing is making the graphics HD, probably by ripping off the original old ones and putting them in the game as they were modeled originally. This does not deserve your money.

    I'm actually pretty okay with it being an HD remake (muh nostalgia). The only thing I think would be cool would be retrofitting it with the projectile and morale systems from American Conquest, but leaving out garrisonable buildings which unnecessarily slowed down gameplay.

    This is as retarded as saying that Fallout 2 doesn't deserve your money because it uses assets from Fallout.
