S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Delayed A.G.A.I.N.

I'm Jack's complete lack of surprise. THQ's oft delayed shooter is delayed once more, although word from the developer is that it's "on the stage of beta approval" ... whatever that means. Latest date is fourth quarter 2007, so there's plenty of time for it to get off that stage.

Everything about STALKER seems to exude overly ambitious game design, with it's emphasis on a realistic renderer, open-ended gameplay and robust multiplayer modes. My guess is that when it's finally released, at least one review will proclaim it could have been a Half-Life 2 killer ... if had only been released in Half-Life 2's lifetime.
