Steamships Ahoy - ARMA II

ARMA II is now available on Steam, offering digital distribution of this military shooter sequel from Bohemia Interactive Studios. A playable demo for the game was released yesterday, and here's some of the spiel for the game:

Building on 10 years of constant engine development, ARMA II boasts the most realistic combat environment in the world. It models real world ballistics & round deflection, materials penetration, features a realtime day/night cycle and dynamic wind, weather and environmental effects. The simulation of a combat environment is so effective, the engine forms the basis for training simulators used by real armies the world over.

Although ArmA II is set in the fictional ex-soviet state of 'Chernarus' the gameworld is actually a 225 square kilometer chunk of the real world! ARMA II's highly detailed landscape is a meticulous facsimile of real terrain, modeled using extensive geographical data. This recreated region is brought to life with spectacular environmental effects and populated with dynamic civilian settlements and wildlife. Wild animals roam the atmospheric forests while the people of Chernarus try to live out their lives among the war-torn streets.

Well I like it. I have a good group of friends to play with, so I don't have to deal with "the greater community" if I don't want to.

And when I'm tired of all the hard thinking and careful thought put into ARMA gametime, I can just play TF2 or whatnot. It's not like I can only do one or the other.
