I'm definitely into this, visually stunning.

I'll definitely keep my eye on it. I've always found their pure sim approach lead to some pretty convoluted game design choices, but it looks cool.

I remember thinking the missions and gameplay were boring and slow but there's enough here for a lot of fun and enjoyment, and then there's the people who are actually into these sim games and you end up seeing their really neat missions they do and post on youtube etc.

I wish they would do a WWII version. It would reduce some complexity and the tank and air battles and RPC was naturally much better than modern warfare IMO. The idea of full scale maps, e.g. Wake Island, with a more serious approach to vehicles and combat would be a lot of fun IMO.

They definitely need to work on it. Considering how much they leave out of their definition of "sim" it always bothered me how clunky some things are. Particularly trying to get the AI men under your command to even come CLOSE to doing what you tell them to do.
That said I do really enjoy Arma II, and I'm looking forward to this entry. Hopefully they will work on textures and performance int he engine, even at "very high" texture settings, everything seems to look about the same as "low".

Arma wanting this for the 360 or PS3 is it PC only?

Probably PC only.

Definitely looks nice enough, but all ARMA games have always had great realistic art style and graphics. I'm wondering whether they will actually bring their physics engine into the new millenia with this new release though. Hated the lack of physics and reactions when shooting people in ARMA II. Looked straight out of 1995. Also, vehicle damage and destruction could use some serious improvement. Looks like they may have reworked the animations though, which was really the only other sore point in the series...

"Proper" physics and ragdoll was added some time ago to Arma3, videos were posted showing such, although possibly before Gamersyde started including PC content so may not have been posted here.

Remember playing ARMA II for the first time, i spawned on a field on a random part of the map. Had no idea where vehicles were or how to ask for a heli to come pick me up but i knew there was a fire fight somewhere ahead of me so i decided to run there. Took me literally 30mins+ to get there and when i did the people playing had pulled out to another village, f*************!!!

I agree.
I like modern setting, but that is close to CoD type considering its exagerated to some extend. Battlefield is like my toe is across the final line of "me dont like" (which tbh I am not enjoying it the game anymore considering some issues I have with it, probably gonna get rid of it soon).

About the game


What's up?
  • Megido
    Megido I mean, how often does it come down to managing to hit a key a milisecond or two faster, as compared to not being shit at the game? :P (36 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido I wonder how many people are even good enough at the games they play to have that make any significant impact :P (36 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There are some new low-travel switches that a lot of people like for gaming too but are bad for typing. Not sure that appeals to me. (40 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Well i mena the clicker thing is gone completely, but the notch in the switch seems to keep some of that tactile feel still in the brown switch. Looks like a good option. (46 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: From the videos and descriptions i could find, it seems like the brown switches are a little quieter than the blu, and that's pretty much what i'm looking for. I like the clicking :) (47 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX If you don't like the natural level of noise you could consider trying adding o-rings too.. I've never actually tried it. (51 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Brown seems like a good middle ground, and i found a keyboard with brown switches for a decent price as well, so i might just go for that. (52 minutes ago)
