Pretty offensive name I should say. Nazikiller would probably plant the bomb outside GSC if they even thought about it.

And about the fanboy thing... the best term you should be using is "diehard fan". I am not actually that fond of this game, but it is just that I don't perfer Half-life 2 or Doom 3. Half-life's thing is probably heaviliy relied of scripts for those fancy (CPU controlled) action, which really kills predictability. Doom 3 is too scary (I am a little faint hearted you see) and all its graphic, while quite flashy, is all grey and black and red. Not exactly those colour I want in a game. STALKERS probably outmatch them all.

And by fanboy, I meant someone that defends their game to the death and refuses to accept that *insert game here* has *insert problems here* problems. Being a *fan* of a game is different from *fanboy*.

Still sound like me

I'd probably still follow the game if they changed the name to something outrageous like "Jew Killer 2000"

Well I do write for fun (and since I have a school assignment, why not?)... in 2 days will be pretty tight but I can do it.

I don't really care if I get into the contest. But I think it'd be cool to see some of my story material (if it's good enuff... you be the judge), show up in the game

And by fanboy, I meant someone that defends their game to the death and refuses to accept that *insert game here* has *insert problems here* problems. Being a *fan* of a game is different from *fanboy*.

Anyways, yes it's good I wont have to wait as long. Only like half a year I want it now

P.S.
I admit I was abit pissed at that response amoki but it's fine now

Yeah first time I looked at this page I was amazed. The contest is a bit late now though, although you can write it and try to email it to them. But, post the story in the forums if you are planning to really give it a try, even if it dosent get counted in the contest Ill like to read a breath of fresh air. Keep it short and sweet.

Amoki is kinda biased, hes been here for such a long time. HL2 has alot of potential to be the next big game, I wont say it will beat anything until i can play both games side to side in comparision.
---END QUOTATION---



Yeah, I'm kind of bias as you said. No further comment. as I had a really terrible experience with HL (played until my head spin in dizziness- never finished the game.)

And no, atem had mailed me that they are no longer accepting contests. So please, be warned.

But there's no harm trying anyway, provided that if you can finish it within 2 days at the least. GSC is promising that the voting system will be changed somewhere around the 15th (one month after I received that email I posted in "Why ther's no update" thread.) Coupled with E3, there might be some very slight chance that you might get taken.

So go ahead, give it a try. No harm done anyway

And BTW- welcome to the forum.

Well I'm writing it anyway for the school assignment.

And amoki, how the heck was I supposed to know? All I saw was the title, nothing more. If you just saw the name of a game would you instantly be drawn to it? You don't exactly seem like the welcoming type

Thank you Chansd5 anyways for your help

Looks like we have a fanboy in the thread
---END QUOTATION---



okay... that's really bad luck. Too bad, we could use some guys like you who have a real interest in writing [blike you instead of some lousy chaps who write for fun in hope that by some fluke, they could win the game well, as Chode had said, you won't have to wait as long as us. Its a compromise anyway, and to be honest, you're quite lucky in a sense that you don't have to go through the troubles we all had with the voting system AND imposters who are trying to give very offensive comments to others.

Wait a minute... well, if you are willing to write for fun, go ahead- you'll get some reception from the forum.

P.S- sorry if I was on the offensive again. Reading through all the stories in the contest again really put me on high recently.

The bulk of us here are fanboys, even me.

It's a shame you didn't hear about S.T.A.L.K.E.R. earlier, but all that means is that you won't have waited as long as the rest of us. I only heard about the game at the start of this year.

Answer is- straightforward no. Sorry mate, but the contest had been going on for 3 years, and you didn't bother to investigate a game that can easily beat HL2 and Doom 3 to dust? Too bad.

Is the contest still going?

I just found out about this amazing looking game today (well I'd heard of it but today is the first time I invistigated)... anyway, I want to know is the literary contest still going? I love writing (and as it happens I have an free writing assignment in school due pretty soon... 6 pager) and I think I might actually have a shot at this...
