Well, I am all for a nice Forgotten Realms RPG, but some of these screenshots look far too cartooney and not at all like Forgotten Realms.
Lets hope they wont rape FR aswell...
*shivers at the thought of Drizzt in japanimation style*

it seems you can easily conceive exactly what forgotten realms is *really* like

but can you conceive of a world where some people actually like manga?

or is that just too fucking crazy to even consider


I dont fucking care what crap you make with mangas as long as you dont rape existing styles with it. Geez... You put a Ferrari sticker on your Mazda, huh?
Wait, that came out wrong.. You actually put a Mazda sticker on your Ferrari.

I agree with the overall sentiment here, especially Dmitri M. The fun is gone in Arma2. Even in this press release they use words like 'gameplay' and 'players' but where is the focus on the game fun and playability? The shitty net-code, the bad performance, the heinous UI and the uncooperative players on public servers all combine to make this game fail hard. It could be good. I want to like it. I just.. can't. Btw, if you want outstanding squad work, Project Reality is where it's at. I would love it if BIS outdid PRmod. I expect hell to freeze over before that happens.

I see you still havent tried ACE2, but have retained your audacious ignorance. Nice!

So will you need a computer built in 2013 to enjoy it or will they actually tune the engine to be a little more...realistic?

/rimshot

They actually did that with patches already. I run it without problems on a 3 year old mid size rig at max settings minus post processing plus 16x AF and 2x AA.
But, all this tweaking and tuning actually made it look worse than before. A pity that whiners have so much power.

I kept hearing that Arma 2 was this great game that would make me forget about games like Battlefield and CoD, so I decided to pick it up on a steam sale.

The game seems like it COULD be good, however no matter what server I join, I get a lot of lag that causes the game to be mostly unplayable (yes I try to find those close with low ping, although there doesn't seem to be a lot of North American-based servers). If I actually manage to join a server, it's mostly guys standing around, or if someone gets a chopper, they fly 5 miles only to be instantly shot down near any kind of hostile.

Could someone explain to me a way to enjoy this game? It seems like I would like it.

The trailer for Arma III looks very impressive if that's actual in-game footage, which I imagine it is if Arma III is a PC exclusive.

Play Warfare. Done.
Dont need a squad to enjoy the game. People are cool enough on those public servers.

Dont listen to the console kids who whine about bugs, because there have been no big ones since a few months after release. Yes, it has bugs, but every real PC ever had bugs, especially huge and complex ones like ArmA 2. Funnily everyone hacks on ArmA 2 now since its one of the very last real PC games, and of course cant hold up to the dumbed down and bugless console ports in that aspect.

But if you realize what this game is all about, it is still the best game out there right now. I just cant get enough of it. The awesome support just adds to it.

Of course you will die a thousands deaths before you master ArmA 2 and will think, its impossible to not die a thousand deaths each game. Ive been playing it for years and still die dumb deaths, but I realize every time that it was my own fault.
ArmA 2 has a very steep learning curve and can be very frustrating since it makes you feel like a complete noob and playing against cheaters, even for OFP veterans.

This could be a good game if Sion Lenton would GTFO. That guy has no business on a OFP game at all. He's totally trashing the franchise. Just read some of what he said in somewhat recent interviews. A facepalm will result - especially to those who are big fans of the original by Bohemia.

So you seriously think if one guy would go, CM, out of all others, would make real PC games again?
Yeah, right...

The only thing that will ever give us back a real Operation Flashpoint is, if they give the franchise back to Bohemia. But since Bohemia made 2 true successors (with a 3rd in the making) to OFP anyway, there is no real reason to argue about this stuff. Just buy Bohemias games and ignore the raped OFP franchise.

What's with the green & red lasers?

Tracers. One of the (unfortunately few) things the game did well. Nice effect.

Huh?
Tracers dont glow like they are flying light sabers from a Star Wars movie. So thats no nice effect. It looks childish, just like the rest of this... game.

It seems to me that the primary distinction between the games is that ArmA is much more realistic than CoD/BF. When you say ArmA is not realistic, do you mean it is not realistic at all or it just isn't a perfect representation of reality?

The primary distinction is intent. CoD/BF try to be realistic in aesthetics only, ArmA tries to be a good representation of reality (I'm not going to say perfect because short of virtual reality that would just be impossible anyway). ArmA's problem is that in its attempt to be as close of a representation as possible, it misses the mark entirely and becomes unrealistic. It's exacerbated by the civilian players who think it is a perfect representation of reality, because they saw on the Military channel once that the Army uses the same technology to train (because obviously, when you're dealing with life and death situations you want to use video games to prepare [that's sarcasm btw]).

I'm not going to say it's impossible for a game to be a good representation of reality, but ArmA is not it.

Oh come on...
Of course ArmA is nowhere near completely realistic - BECAUSE ITS STILL A GAME!!!
Even me as a realism-nut wouldnt want a completely realistic game because you would need a 2 year training for that.
If you want more realism (but still not that realistic that your own sweat might make you slip and kill yourself), play with ACE2, which is actually developed by actual military members of different countries. Everyone knows that vanilla ArmA isnt super realistic, but its still far more realistic than anything else out there, especially in tactics, strategies, weapon systems, communication and AI, yes AI.

If you want the most realism, go play Warfare on an ACE2 server, and even better yet, join a clan so you will have the most realistic teamwork and combat you can have of any game out there.

Ever played Warfare?
Of course ArmA sucks on those maps that try to simulate CoD or CSS. Has been forever and always will. Never understood why you want to play such maps in ArmA anyway... Thats like wanting to drive the towing tug on the airfield instead of the fully loaded and ready to fly AH-64.

Seems like this should be included in the normal subscription costs to KEEP players.

Agreed. And that means they will lose more players soon. That in return means that the number of accounts for sale will rise aswell. So better sell your account while you still get a good price!

Quite the opposite. Diablos graphics were very well made in each game for its time. Just the resolution was too low after a few years. Have you played D1 or D2 with widescreen mods? They look absolutely fantastic, even today.


To be honest, a lot of the tilesets used to randomly generate the maps in D2 look terrible for that era, even at a higher resolutions. And most of the enemies, such as the brightly colored shamans, looked very cartoony. Seriously, my Sorc had a bright purple shield FFS. I remember this after all these years because I spent the entire time thinking just how ridiculous it looked. The only things that looked good were the unique structures and environments, and that is only because they are essentially hand drawn 2d paintings. The same difference can be seen when Bioware switched over to 3d. Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, and the old infinity engine games had gorgeous hand painted backdrops that look fantastic even today. When they went to 3d, with NWN, KOTOR, Jade Empire, etc, the 3d graphics looked absolutely shit in comparison.


So yeah, D3 is 3D now. You can keep on whining and bitching about it, or get over it. I can't help but imagine the ppl bitching about D3 not being dark enough as bunch of angsty goths who shop at hot topic and still live in their mother's basements. "ZOMG THERE AREN"T ENOUGH PENTAGRAMS SO ITS NOT SUPER COOL ANYMORE!!!!!!!" Rolleyes

And yeah sure, it's not Blizzard North anymore. It's now Leonard Fucking Boyarsky of Fallout fame. You can't get better than that.

Well I'll ignore your offtopic BS and get to the only 2 points you had in there:
I never said I dont like 3D. 3D games nowadays can look far better (if they are not some console port crap) than the old 2D games. But D3 doesnt because it uses WoW style.
Hell, I even liked Dungeon Siege back then, even though it was one of the first 3D HnS games. It had virtually no story to tell, but it looked awesome, had good controls for a 3D game from that perspective and the graphics created an extremely dense atmosphere and made you feel like youre in the first fairy tale your grandma told you as a child.
D3 just doesnt look like Diablo anymore. Yes, Diablo had some glowing monsters and weapons here and there, but they didnt look out of line unless you had your brightness turned all the way up, in which case it indeed looked more like a my little pony game in bright daylight...

Clearly, all of these people ranting about how Diablo 3 looks like WoW have never played a Diablo game before. It's not about immersion and flashy graphics. It's about spamming your spells to kill the 90194 bad guys that are trying to kill you, and picking up loot, then doing it all over again against harder enemies for better loot.

The graphics are fine. The gameplay will be fine. There's not many ways you can fuck up hack and slash.

Quite the opposite. Diablos graphics were very well made in each game for its time. Just the resolution was too low after a few years. Have you played D1 or D2 with widescreen mods? They look absolutely fantastic, even today.
Ive played WoW since release and thus know very well what WoW graphics look like. When I look a D3 screenshots I always have to think about WoW. Even some models seem to be ported directly into D3 from WoW.
Diablo was immersive, but that was mainly due to the very dark and realistic design. D3 doesnt look nearly as dark or realistic. It looks cartooney, just like WoW. No wonder, this isnt Blizzard North anymore (what most fanboys dont know either).

But I have aready learned that Blizzard fanboys are amongst the worst, so dont feel obligated to answer to this post because you will only support my opinion.

I'm thoroughly happy about this.

I'm sure you'd be ecstatic if your credit card had thousands of dollars of fraudulent purchases and your SSN was stolen all in the name of sending a message to "corporate spooge monkeys."



You probably don't have a PS3, though, so your information is safe. Which, then, makes me wonder why you really care about Sony's actions at all.

Are there any reports of credit card fraud yet? My friend canceled his CC on the day it was announced they were hacked and didnt have any damage.

Anyway, I dont have a PS3 either, and Ive stopped buying Sony products like 2 years ago. I am also very happy. Why I care? Because I love when arrogant and ignorant corporate suits learn the hard way. Should be MUCH more common these days.
