Another modern day military-based shooter, how original..
Why make comments like this? First it was "Oh Great another WWII shooter"... Then it was "Great another Halo clone" and now it's "another modern day military-based shooter".

You people do realize that the only options are past present or future, right?

ArmA isn't a shooter, it's a military simulation, huge difference, this isn't some game you can run and gun around bunny hopping whilst firing full auto from the hip.

You really don't know anything about this game . From you're comment I asume you think this is something like CoD4 , trust me you are greatly mistaken.
Screen look good , now just say how many players there will be on consoles , becouse I was dissapointed with the Operetion 2 announcement that consoles only 8 players.

This looks good but the first Arma was really buggy I hope this would be better.
Commented on 2008-07-29 22:45:24
When are we going to move on from these games. First person shooters are okay, but getting old. Especially the ones that don't have a unique and imaginative storyline (normal war shoot russian/korean/germans).

Looks good but I think I might be getting tired of these :o

It was buggy but not so much after patches and continued support for game via patches.

Runs well smooth for me on latest patch and i havnt got greatest of rigs Editor is what made this game for me just creating big scale battles and joining in its immense.

Plus addons created by community are superb planes and vehicles scripts etc.

i kinda agree. devs seem to see something which works, and then milk it dry...it happened with WW2, now its modern combats turn.

Okay I only played it when it was quite new game and it was really bad experience so I never tried it again heh. Let's just hope this second game is better without patches.

Still I am interested because I liked the OFP. That game too had great editor.

Can I be pedantic and point out it should be written ArmA please ;)

You're comparing it to the wrong sort of game, ArmA is an open world, go anywhere, do anything, shoot anything, drive anything, complete your objective any way you want kind of game, it's not a linear corridor shooter like COD4 and the like. There have been very few of this type of game since Flashpoint's release in 2001, probably you can count on the fingers of one hand this type of open world, total freedom type military experience.

Look at the sky, its blue with some white clouds.
Now, why is the entire enviroment at ground-level so dark that its almost as if they were fighting in an overcast, thunderstorm, or at night (lol ok slight exaggeration)? O_o

I'm suuuure this game is going to be amazing in every way.. I really am.
But WHEN will developers get out of their rooms and realize that the real world is NOT all brown and gray?! I still havent seen a game that manages to convey the same pure insanely saturated BLUE color of a summers day sky, or the equally insanely intense GREEN of grass and trees being lit up by the warm sun.
Its always portrayed as gray and brown and dark, and dark again. Why?

Looks... umm... Well it looks abot the same as any other game. WHhy would you think there is any tampering being done? o.O

I agree with the lighting, but the rest, well it seems like thats pretty much the right color pallet for that enviroment, the grass isn't actualy suypposed to be super green. Not all gras is green at all... And yeah, with the overcast lok to things, thats what things look like on an over cast day... Which its actuially kinda close to in the screen ANYWAY... its not blue with SOME clouds, its clouds with SOME blue... It should be a bit brighter, but not hugely more.

Why should video games be restricted to time in the first place? What time period is Super Mario set in? Flow? LittleBigPlanet? Psychonauts?
What I think Inflatable and many others here are really trying to point out though is not what kind of time First Person games are set in these days but a concern towards the whole shooting aspect of it all. Just because a game is played out from the eyes of a character, must I be shooting and killing things?
Almost every single game set in first person that has been made so far is just trying to simulate war. Man vs. whatever. The whole concept of human beings shooting things in First Person is getting really, really tiresome. What shapes or colors I'm aiming at in todays FPS doesn't matter to me anymore since it's all the same. "We're good, they're bad, now shut up and shoot! Soldier!"
More developers need to move away from all these military training simulations. Realistic, arcadic, linear, open-ended... I'm still shooting things, with guns.
Just look at Valve and DICE. I think what they're doing by going from Half-Life to Portal, and from Battlefield to Mirror's Edge is, albeit small, a very significant step towards better First Person Gaming in general.

i think the first ArmA had volumetric clouds (i could be thinking of another game) so if its this dark its probably because a cloud is blocking the way of the sun. if u look at the clouds u will see there is a lot of them grouped together so there wont be full sunlight if they are positioned in front of the sun.

Yes please.

Bohemia may not produce the perfect game at release, but with their ongoing support and insane community they soon evolve into unmatched experiences.
Commented on 2008-07-30 09:52:53
I would like these games (Arma and operation flashpoint), but they are a little bit too difficult for me because they are true simulations (except for the fact that you can pilot every vehicle in the game). For me a game has to be fun to play and not die with every bullet that hits you. But For people who love simulation, there aren't any other games out there that provide the same realism.

    alimokrane how I have enjoyed this article [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • Megido
    Megido I mean, compare the bizarre texture on Vaan's abs to the crotch and see the massive difference in texels, then look at the lego-brick shoes. They put the detail where you are likely to look. (2 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Though i can certainly agree that a lot more work has been made to make characters look better in FFXII. But a lot of that is keeping textures simple to look decent even if resolution is tiny. (2 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido But all the same technical aspects apply to the characters and objects as well. The AA is better emulated as well, but if you ported DD to a modern PC that'd be a moot point. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: I would agree with you on backgrounds and effects for DD, but on characters, objects, anti-aliasing and resolution for FF12. (2 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Certainly a lot less workarounds to dodge limitations of tiny memory. Look at the obvious tiling in the FFXII shots for example. I mean, that ass-tiling on the wall in the background is pretty bad. (2 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Much more even texel distribution, by far more complex lighting, shaders and particle effects. At LEAST double the poly count and texture resolutions overall. (2 Hours ago)
