Been playing it. i72600K, 8GB RAM, GTX580. Runs like butter here on an almost Ultra setting.

Also, I've found myself enjoying this alpha quite a lot. Animations are so much better, the radio banter is infinitely better.

I think third time's the charm for Bohemiah. They've got something special here.

On a related note, the price of ArmaIII will increase as the beta and the final release come out. The alpha is pretty much priced at half the price of the full game when it comes out. I can say that if the prospect of ArmaIII interests you to get it right now. When I got ArmAII at release I didn't find it too fun until a dozen patches later. I'm already finding A3 fun despite being an alpha.

And the graphics, holy fuck these graphics.
You've just made the wait for the end of the day at work a lot harder.

No shit. Guess I'll be grabbing it this weekend.

Bastards....I have no money to spend on games right now!!! ARGHHHH!
