GC: Arma 3 out in the open

GC: Arma 3 out in the open

Because Gamescom is above all the kingdom of PC gaming, it was impossible not to talk about Arma 3, the only real hardcore soldier simulation.

I will wait for a year before I buy this. By then there should be enough patches to sort out the many bugs that will be in the game (i'm sure of that because of the bad release of Arma, Arma II),there will be a load of mods, and you'll probably get it cheap with all DLC.

I have the dev build on my home PC but http://images.gamersyde.com/image_arma_3-20059-229... still had me looking a second time to make sure it wasn't a real photo!

Looks freakin great, despite the low resolution. Will get this + DayZ, day 1.

Yes, it is one step from real photo. Realism is the main feature of this game

About the game

  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: Id on't know. I didn't finish GTA5 but i felt like a LOT of the missions were complete throwaway garbage. The main story was mostly decent, but the rest? (6 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And right now there's a bit of a backlash against sandbox games in general. (20 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There are plenty of examples of poor open world games, but there's also stuff like GTA5. I think it's a bit more nuanced than open world = bad is all. (22 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: I think you nailed it there though. "The best bits". Most open world sandbox games are filled with mediocrity and some good bits. (29 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yes.. that "build a world" part is where they design it. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: except not many are. they build a world, and stick quests in it. that's why open world RPG's quests are typically so shallow. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There's no reason an open world can't be curated and designed. The best bits of every good sandbox are. (1 Hour ago)
