I just found what should be a great game for a awsome price.

This is for a Pre-Order, Game is released on 23rd March (in 17 Days)

Was looking for the standard version for as cheap as possible but came across the limited edtion version for the same price of £17.99 but also after checking HotUkDeals for any codes It came up with £1 off which brings the total to £16.99 delivered, the next cheapest I saw this for was £22.99 so a great saving if you ask me

hotukdeals.com/for…715

Enter in Gift Coupon box at check out: CRAWFORD for £1 off

For Some Reason I can't add pictures so here are is the picture of the Tin Case and below that is the Contents.

Added pics in there, as they don't work when you view the post from the front page.

This is also £17.99 @ ][COLOR=blue]BlahDVD[/COLOR], and if you've never bought from there you could use the £][COLOR=blue]2 off voucher[/COLOR], making it £15.99 (only if you are a new customer though)

oo nice heads up, did'nt notice blahdvd doing the same thing.

I have order from them before so could'nt get the £2 discount anyways :-(.

I still think its a awsome price due to it being the limited edition version :-D , I never go for these as I dont see any reason to pay for more but im actualy paying less for more hehe :p.

There has been a recent ingame video of the game in action but there are a couple of french blokes talking over it which gets annoying hehe.

I can't make my mind up with S.T.A.L.K.E.R, do I want it or not!?!?
Great price on the Ltd Ed.

Someone tell me please! To make matters worse the 23rd lies in that risky period of the month where the wages have usually dried up completely...

Buy it, Try it, if you dont like it, Sell it for £16-18 :thumbsup: it should be worth that easy even after 2 weeks after release as its the limited edition version.

I've been waiting for this to come out for years and I think it should be a great game in single and multiplayer, also possibility of some great mods to.

wow, finally a product on here which I worked on... I no longer work for THQ (been almost a year and a half) so sorry no technical support questions ;-) LOL

i'm a little unsure about this game, can you fly any helicopters like are shown in the video?

I don't know about the helicopters, but if this game can do half the stuff its spoken of over it slong dev time then it should be an absolute stonker! Even though it's now a bit dated graphically, I'm really looking forward to it.

:-D

Im not sure about the helicopters but im almost sure I read you can use vehicles, it was mentioned over a year ago about vehicles ingame so dont think it would of changed.

They did that with UT:2003 though...
I really think I'm going to try and demo this one first. I've still got F.E.A.R., Half-Life 2: Episode 1 and Rainbox Six: Vegas to get through yet so not sure I need another FPS just yet.

Just had a quick look on the FAQ of the developers site and came to the conclusion you can't fly helicopters nor ride a bike heheh

The question and answer are right at the top of the page once you load the link.

I can't see anything to suggest you can't drive any vehicles like cars, I remember seeing a wheeled APC being driven in a video a year or two ago, im seeing if I can find it now, will post if i find.

Found it :thumbsup:

This is the one im on about and is like 2 years old.

It shows them driving a lorry and the APC i mentioned, this is shown Three Quaters of the way through the video ( at 10 min 45 seconds to be precise ).

The world is 30km x 30km so it would be a good thing to have vehicles hehe.

You cant drive vehicles.
They didnt work with the anomolies, as driving around at speed would lead to instant deaths for seemingly no reason.

This company has totally messed me around. After all this time preordering they have just emailed me to say demand has been greater than supply and they have cancelled my order. they then offer me the basic version at a much more expensive price and claim it is still the cheapest price on the net. I checked and it was far from it (so lie to there). This is not what i call customer service. I should have atleast been offered the basic version for the same price as my original ltd ed version i pre-order. Any bad rep or loss of business Powerplay direct receive from this is there own fault. I for one shall certainly be avoiding them like the plague !!!!!! I know i should have purchased this from BLAHdvd for that extra £1. Atleast BLAHdvd have customer service !!!!!!!!

Been playing this for a week now and it is fantastic.....although you die when your killed and thats it no more lives. You have to start from the beginning again...:-(

Reordered LTD Edition version now from DVD.co.uk.

I still can't believe after pre-ordering the item from Powerplay direct they decide to inform me the day they should be despatching it to me they will be cancelling my order due to short supply. Its ridiculous. and then to lie to me they are the cheapest on the net when they are far from it for the basic version of the game.

[COLOR="Black"][SIZE="6"]AVOID Powerplay Direct[/SIZE][/COLOR]

Powerplay Direct .com has now sent me a second email in reply to my complaint that they are NOT the cheapest online (a false claim on their part).

They apologised for the mis information but sent it not only to me but other customers openly in the same email. Breaking my privacy rights and leaving my email open to spam.

This is becoming another HMV star trek error scenario. This is always happening to me. How can these be just rare occurances ?!??! Surely consumers have rights !!

The funny thing is, I ordered the normal Stalker from blahdvd, because they didn't have the Radiation Pack Edition anymore on their website. Now I've recevive a email saying they have posted it, now the Radiation Pack is back on their website.

Grrrr, I wouldn't have minded having the Radiation Pack Edition at no extra cost.

yes i noticed that. BLAHdvd all of a sudden around midday today had the limited edition pack on their website again.

So i cancelled my order with dvd.co.uk and ordered from BLAHdvd.

I have a feeling I will be messed around though again this time by BLAHdvd. We'll See. fingers crossed. I already received a wrongly sent item by BLAHdvd this morning so might be a bad omen.

you got this from Blah yet? Mine says ready for despatch still....:thinking:

I cancel it. I was under same situation as you. I rang them to make sure I wasnt going to get mesed around again like i was with powerplaydirect.com

I was told by blahdvd, after she checked up if it was despatched, that the batch they received was damaged and that they was awaiting a new one to be sent. Didnt look good.
Fortunely for me powerplaydirect mess up again to my advantage. They cancelled my order, deleted my account, but strangly powerplaydirect received more stock and sent me one just before deleting my account. Waiting on that now.

pre-ordered this ages ago - turned up last Friday and played fine on max settings for 5 hours - next day i load it up and it crashes every 5 minutes. Same thing happened with Oblivion

They seem to be blaming the postal system, seems to be a lie as they have already said they received them damaged :giggle:

Yer, sorry, its not a console game and so there are no save checkpoints (except at level exits). You have to save manually wherever and whenever you like. Which is nice :thumbsup:

Blahdvd is definetely lying through there teeth.
I was told they receive the batch damaged from their supplier.
the whole batch.. mmmm....

Now they are telling you yours was damaged in despatch to you?!?!

Porkies... Will certainly make me think twice about using Blah DVD from now on when they are full of bull.
