I'm one of those that plunked down the cash for ARMA II just to play DayZ. I regret every cent. It was horribly buggy and the underlying ARMA platform just feels....I don't know...poorly thrown together. It made for an interesting, if not frustrating experience overall. I love the concept and really want a hardcore survival game like this, but preferably one built by a dev that really wants a solid release product

You and me both.

I'm glad you guys got suckered into it so longtime ofp/arma (non-zombie style) players like myself who "get the game" could benefit

zombie type games attract casual gamers, bis got lucky with this mod

I don't understand why some of you think this means there might be a DK for PC. They're just packaging up an old IP for release on a mobile platform to make some cash. Probably outsourced to some company somewhere and since it's a developed IP it's safe producing it cheaply. Little risk an outsourcing company will mess it up since there's a lot of material to work with. "Here guys copy this". From a production standpoint.. WE know they might not do the originals justice but from EA's perspective they get a safe little cash cow for mobile that requires little gameplay or conceptual development.

You guys make it sound like a lot of fun.
I might grab it when it goes on sale again.

Again? It's on sale now.

Dmitri_M, there was a bug where infantry in forest would be labelled as panicked when they should, but no actual panic penalties would be applied. Does your tactic still work?
Haven't noticed any issues. Though I tend to use veteran and elite infantry since they rarely panic. As such I may not have noticed the bug.

Just finished a nice little 1v1. Hit and run infantry attacks then quickly relocate as the air strikes come in. Infantry decks are risky to play with. You sometimes get wiped out wholesale but it's so much fun choppering your entire army in fast and deploying into every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse.

Yeah in MP just when you think you have the perfect deck some guy will unleash some obscure unit you haven't heard foiling an offensive.

Unlike so many RTS there's no guaranteed way to win. The tactics are so varied, often down to just the right timing.

At the moment I'm fielding mostly infantry and support units. I love hiding infantry in forests and then walking them to the edge when unsuspecting enemy units move by. Infantry is much improved in ALB.

Having played Terminator games on the NES, in the Arcade and on the PC, I can honestly say the best Terminator game is Farcry 3 Blood Dragon..

Yeah it f-ing pisses me off when they take these franchises that we're dying for a sequel and make damn cell phone games with them. What's the idea anyway? Cell phone users aren't the DK fans. You always do this EA, try to kill franchises.
The idea is that thats where they think the money is. Casual games.

Well their stupid. I wonder if those guys go home thinking, man I'm stupid. Go to sleep thinking, man I'm stupid. Or are they too stupid to realize it? Their marketing team must be an Activision plant.
Actually they're thinking "We're making money. My MBA paid off. So glad I studied hard rather than playing computer games all day long like my friends".

Pretty standard FPS with mechs? Liked the ejection move the player did towards the end. Looks dated graphically. Unlike the rest of Bluesnews I won't be buying a Xbone or PS4 but I cannot wait for their arrival so PC exclusive players like myself can finally get some ports that actually live up to PC hardware.

As long as people get sick and die and don't turn into Zombies then I'm interested.

I guess this means Ubisoft has finally dropped any pretense of Tom Clancy games having anything to do with Rainbow Six.

You're aware Tom Clancy created more stuff than just the Rainbow Six 'universe', right?

You're aware that some gamers associate Ubisoft's Tom Clancy license with Rainbow Six, right Creston?

And since I replay most of my games at least once or twice (except for the crap ones), that can be pretty annoying.

You're lucky. A tiny percentage of the games that I purchase I ever complete even once.

I'm purchasing games like a 14 year old with too much disposable income but "playing" them like a 32 year old..in other words rarely because I just don't have time. I think guys like me are driving Steam sales. I just don't know if we're actually playing anything with buy.

It's peculiar to me that people are so stuck on linearity in games. I rarely play a game through twice to discover whether things are linear or not. If it's what the designer intended and I'm having a good time does it matter that it's linear?

I woke up this morning, turned over in bed, and said to my wife "You know what PC gaming really needs right now? Another trading card-based game. That would be fresh and original."
Did she file for divorce and run off with a skydiver?

I'm immune to the hype for this till they give us a fixed PC release date. I don't know why Rockstar can't do that.

What you really seem to be saying (without saying it) is that you want Half-Life 3.

Yup. I guess so. Something big..with SP.

They were a top tier developer. Now they're releasing MP source mods. At least ID attempted Rage.

I'd rather Valve not make a massively mediocre game (Half-Life 3) just to please people who are 'bored'. Portal 1 has more to it than any ID game since Doom 2. I'd actually prefer if ID stopped making games and just focused on engine development. To each their own.

I'd like to see them do SOMETHING, is my point. I never got into Portal. Always felt like a one trick novelty game. Something you might now see on kickstarter for $80 000. L4D feels like a HL mod. I don't pay any attention to Dota or Counterstrike.
