I think it's still pretty early for Clear Sky to go on sale like this, but plenty of people missed out on this game and now they have a chance to pick it up for cheap.

I myself went ahead and just purchased it as well. I always meant to get around to trying this out since I was always really intrigued by the premise, so now that I have a computer which can run it really nicely and a bargain price to go with the game, I can't say no to this.

Much obliged for noticing this, Kush.

I would buy this(and I did as my first official STEAM purchase) even if I didn't have a PC that could run it at the moment.

Or if you own the boxed copy(like myself) go ahead and buy it again! ...What the hell right?

I made it run on a Radeon 9600 and 1.0Ghz Athlon.
Great game. :)

Havn't finished it. Waiting for my new lappy.

I actually pirated this game to see how it would run, played it for 5 mins, but the frameraste was far too low for me to justify it at £40 but $5 after a video card upgrade, Jesus I love Steam, purchase!

That's a hell good price for a game of that age.

I thought this was incredibly negative at first, not ragging on the typo on "deal" either, I seriously thought the "dead" was some kind of crazy shit that was happening on steam over the weekend and was about to flip out >.< Anyway ya I saw this deal, its a amazing damn steal for this game.

#14 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

Holy Pooper! I did make a typo...I guess that's what happens when you're excited and just about woke up at 6 in the morning :P

Just downloaded the game worth it, not to bad not to bad a t all.

I recommend checking out some of the mods for the game as well...there are some good ones out there.

thanks for the heads up.
i didn't know that

#19 Posted by Rowr (5474 posts) -

when i was playing it i put on darker nights, more realistic ai, better headlights.

Those mods alone made the atmosphere incredible.

But there are some incredible mods with tons of content.

I would recommend adding some slighter mods first as not to deviate to much from the intended game, then on the second playthrough add one of the bigger ones. The ABC mod, oblivion lost etc.

Even though it has its flaws and is ridiculously hard toward the end of the game unless you're a crack shot and a gun expert, it's easily worth the 5$ to at least explore the world a little and shoot some dudes in the face.  And I thought I got it for a steal at $30...

Nice find, I've been looking for an excuse to get this game.

Before I spring for this great deal, does anyone know how good of a video card it requires? I have an NVIDIA Geforce 7150M, for reference.

#24 Posted by daniel_beck_90 (3159 posts) -

the game totally worth it

#26 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

Ooo, I think I am going to pick this one up.

#27 Posted by WickedCobra03 (2102 posts) -

Yeah, I already own this, bought it the day it came out.

I wouldn't exactly go that far, but I would say that it's the best open-world shooter/action/rpg/thing that I've ever played.

Yeah, check out the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. forum, there's a couple of good threads in there.

I picked this up last night, but have yet to play it.  I was waiting to buy it, so why not buy it when it's this cheap?  I love Steam Weekend Deals.

You can't help but love the weekend deals...it's a great business plan too. It makes everyone come check steam every weekend to see the deal...and maybe people may browse and pick something else up at the same time.
#35 Posted by Standing_Gopher (129 posts) -

Just bought it. Steam's weekend deals are, indeed, pretty rad.

#36 Posted by jakob187 (21640 posts) -

STEAM WEEKEND IS DEAD?!?!?!  ZO NOES!!!

It will be truly missed... = (

In all seriousness, though...sweet ass deal.  STALKER is the shit.
#37 Posted by Illmatic (1358 posts) -

Saw the deal this morning and cursed myself for having such a crappy PC gaming wise.
