lol. Not unlike a lot of other mods in the past then which have enjoyed great success and later turned stand alone, huh?
You're dissapointed for buying Arma II just for that? If you can't stand it why buy it then? Not happy with the 4+ months of great experience you'll get from the mod/game before the standalone can come out? Is the 20something quid spent on a steam sale that much of an arm and a leg for you and you'd much rather have spent twice as much on an AAA which boasts a whopping 6 hours of gameplay?
Also a quite from the article itself:
“In order for people to not feel ripped off we need to have a load of new content; so, things like base-building, tidying and cleaning up animations and add ragdoll physics as the like.”
If you call this a shitty developer then to quote someone else in Blues "Please leave the internet"
