I almost died laughing at the fish bit. Can't wait to see what missions Bohemia can cook up around fish assassinations... :P
They deserve our money . This game is looking really amazing . On high settings it is the most photo realistic game out there . Even 2 employees were arrested in attempt to give us more realism in game . Glad they are out now .
I hope the plot of Arma 3 will be interesting this time... can't remember of a good plot since Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crysis (best game ever...).
I also want Bohemia to make use of all the vehicles and weapons in the campaign missions this time, not everyone plays ARMA for the online component...
It was touched upon, but should be mentioned again directly. DO NOT PRESS G TO OPEN YOUR INVENTORY!! G is for grenades, so pressing it for inventory access will just get you and your squad killed.
My problem with this game is that there are just too many hats. I'm not going to buy it unless they get rid of some of those hats, or allow users to take off their hats at the very least.
Aparently, this "sim" doesn't feature a safety delay on rockets and the like... Also, I very much doubt you'd be able to destroy tires on APC's with small arms fire(at least not less than 12.7mm). They aren't exactly using normal tires.
A must watch video for everyone .
looks cool but I am kinda stuck to games I can throw a controller at.. so could i use a ps3/360 controller on this and map it out?
For anyone asking "what makes Arma different from BF 3?" or any of those types of questions; here ya go
This video sums up essentially all of the basics you need to know about Arma 3 and the Arma series in general. Narrated by probably one of the most well known multiplayer FPS players no-less (well, if you played Operation Flashpoint and America's Army back in the day).
I don't have a PC yet, but you PC gamers: Do you think this game will have a good controller environment?
I don't get why so many people complain about this being a first-person shooter. It's a combat simulator, how else would they do it?
@pimpofdoom I used to like that too, lots of Arma 2 then recently found some cool FP servers and its much more fun, find myself sneaking and leaning much more and taking my time, though its still a pain in the hole to drive some vehicles...but on the overall its much more fun imo..
@GetafixOz streamlined? nope..they just added some more keys to bind.
@pcostix *Crisis ;)
@Falzonn or you could just reassign your nades to antoher key, duh!
@faizanhd You mean to the standalone that's been in development for about a year now? It's set to come out later this year, and yes it does run on the Arma 3 engine.
@Jason210 and why is everyone wearing the same underpants..really...I know if I was going into war I would be wearing my lucky pants!
That's what the feedback tracker is for.
@Jawehawk-DK the APC's tire are solid rubber...
@Jawehawk-DK Maybe you have to use armor piercing rounds to take out the tires ?
@Jawehawk-DK Sounds like something MythBusters would test
@TrickySky You're going to have to map movement to the controller and vital actions like reload, change weapon and crouch. That's barely the tip of the iceberg. There is about 300 actions in this game and more to come. So keep your keyboard close by.
@zpluffy nope, not on them specs ya wont!
@zpluffy I hope it isn't. PC's have hardly anything left going for them.
@zpluffy Sadly, that's not going to happen.
Hell there's barely enough controls on a keyboard to control it as is.
@BuBsay At 3:42 I suddenly said to myself "A perfect setting for DayZ".
@JanCarl0 the game has a massive keybinding system, I use a 12 button Naga and I struggle with assigning keys..there just isn't enough! (well there is but they are way over there)
@JanCarl0 No controller have very limited buttons and if u use a controller then it will be harder for u to play this game.
The market is just oversaturated with FPS games that is all.
This game should however be an FPS I agree.
@toshineon Because it's cool to hate on first person shooters. Fuck em. I love this game. ArmA 2 with ACE and ACRE and other addons make it unlike any other fucking first person shooter on the planet. And it's immersion level is exactly why it's so awesome. First person all the way.
PS, it's not a first person shooter. You can play third person if you like.
@danielcliment You'd be surprised how often guys get caught literally with their pants down in war. Especially these days. If your FOB is ambushed, you could very well be in boxers and some slip on shoes while you man the Mk19.
I also heard a Marine tell a story of how he got caught in a field toilet (See: plywood box above a hole in the ground) during a mortar strike.
@danielcliment Lt. Dangle does it every day on mean the streets of Reno, Nevada :)
