One of the results of my mad quest to become youtube's greatest whore, behold the Steam Group!
If you're reading this, it's because you've been invited to have fun, and have it recorded for all to see. If you haven't already, join. If you've already joined, help spread the word. If you don't want to help spread the word, don't. If you don't, just be fun.
This group will notify its followers whenever I or one of the officers is recording something in a game. If you want to join in, by all means do. If you're not feeling up to it, see you next time. I just have three requests if you're joining.
1) Be 15 years of age or older.
2) Have a microphone.
3) Don't be an ass (spam, grief, etc).
If one of the first two points doesn't apply to you and you still join, I won't take action to remove you, but simply note that you're replaceable by someone who caters to my requests (contrary to popular belief, I have sane people on my friends list).
Also, please note that a lot of footage often gets discarded from the final video. So even though you think that recreating "ode to the joy" using fart sounds is funny, doesn't mean I'll use it for the video.
When the video is uploaded to youtube, we will post an announcement containing its link.
If you upload videos to youtube and wish to become an officer, contact me and we'll work something out.

There isn't really any other game like this one out there (besides the other games in the series of course.) It's sort of a combination of stuff you would find in a Bethesda game with a weird indie feel reminiscent of nothing in particular. It has some annoying flaws and the atmosphere sort of got on my nerves but I guess that's what's expected from an fps set in alternate universe ukraine where the chernobyl nuclear disaster actually caused some (or all) of the surrounding inhabitants to rapidly mutate dramatically. Recalling my run through it about a year go, all I can think of is "eh..." and that there are certain feelings expressed (non-sentimental) in the game that I can't really explain as I write this, you'll just have to play it to see what I mean for yourself.
This isn't the most innovative or original game out there, in fact it's pretty far from both of those things. But what it does do well is deliver brilliantly on a semi-original idea and tweaks that "idea" so that it isn't extremely boring after around three hundred hours of playing time.
This game deserves more praise than it's gotten. This game is far scarier than "scary" games of today, which are just shooters with a few horror elements thrown in there. But this game is not like that, its focus is far from combat, being that there is none. Your only form of defense is your witsm run or hide from the not so colorful cast of ugly things appearing at probably the most inoppurtune moments. The game also contains quite a deep story and some puzzles that leave you going "huh?" for a moment until you figure it out a few minutes later (the puzzles aren't bad, they're just not that challenging to me.) This is by far, the scariest game I've ever played. If you get to the end of this game and then play a neo-survival horror game, such as Dead Space, you will not be scared. This is due to the psychological strain the developers aimed at making and did such a good job at implemeting into the game.
