Free Game Friday: S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat

For this week’s Free Game Friday, I have something stuffed up my technology laden sleeve that is a little different but not too different.

Yes, it’s a first person shooter but I’m willing to wager that it’s not one of the first that springs to mind. And that would be a shame as it’s really worth a little (if not more) of your attention.

This week’s Free Game Friday’s prize is ‘S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat’. So the first question on your lips will no doubt be, “What’s a Pripyat, when he’s at home?” and my honest answer is that I had no idea until I asked a commonly used search engine which then directed me to a free encyclopedia which suggested I might be referring to an abandoned city near the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. This seemed about right as this fitted with the imagery of the game.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat is the third in the series of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games. And like all good game series it has matured and become more refined. Everything about it is an improvement on its predecessor and it makes full use of lighting to create a tense atmospheric feel that is more familiar to a horror movie genre as oppose to your typical first person shooter.

So here’s the deal, if you’d like to win a copy of a great game here’s what I’d like you to do. As always with Free Game Friday, you have two chances to enter. For your first entry, simply retweet the following post on Twitter: Tweet this

For your second entry, I want you to get creative and come up with what you think ‘S.T.A.L.K.E.R.’ should stand for. It could be anything you like, serious or humorous, related or unrelated to the game. Have a go, leave you comments on the blog and by Friday you could have yourself a brand new game for your efforts.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
