Only had time to play one of the showcases last night (combined arms) but it was freaking awesome. No more feeling like my soldier's made out of lead.

I really wanted to like Arma 2 but the "easy to ignore flaws" were sometimes gamebreaking bugs, like my friend's remapping of keys for his lefti-ness simply not working.

As much as I think the franchise has lots of potential, and was a massive fan of Flashpoint, after Arma and Arma 2 I think I'll wait for a demo before I risk money on this one.

Gamebreaking is relative to all players, so my bad. I assure you if you haven't played any Arma 3 yet its, so much better, the feel the sound the controls. So much better.

It doesn't play as smooth as polished AAA titles but those games usually suck most the time.

I think Bohemia Interactive should build a shrine to Dean "The Rocket" Hall in their lobby. If not for him most people would never have experienced the depth of mods and missions that were available for Arma II and only the hardcore (who all hate "The Rocket" for ruining their game) would be interested at all in Arma III.

Arma3 has been awesome!!

Was getting tired of all the shit talking with Arma 2 because of some easy to ignore flaws, when the fundamental game underneath is just sublime.

As long as things like Arma 3 exist, I fear not for PC gaming.

That is weird, I do not see Arma3 Alpha anymore only Arma3 beta in my games list.
I do see some other people having the same problem too.
Maybe contact Steam support?

Did you buy the game or did you get the Alpha from someone?

YAY!! This doesn't look like much of a bump in content over the alpha. Will play to see.

I got one of those Korean ones everyone was raving about a few months back for like 400.00..lol.

I was tempted to get one until I saw that they probably wouldn't last more than a year.

I wonder if I should grab another GTX570 and go with SLI or sell my 570 and get a GTX760 instead.
This game makes me want to upgrade my PC.

Why stop there? I think you should go Triple SLI w/GTX780s.

Yeah why not, can I borrow your credit card?
Speaking of expensive video cards, TotalBiscuit is running Titans in SLI! That is over 2 grand in video cards!

I have a 27" - 1080p monitor.
Arma3 Alpha and now CoH2 are the only games that needed some tweaking in the options menu to make them run smooth.
With the new consoles I think we will see more games pushing the PC hardware, so the upgrade is coming sooner or later, but this game just makes me want to crank everything to the max. It looks so good!
Can't wait for the final game.

I'm running a 570 or 580...Cant remember but I've yet to still have any issues running games at max. I'm also running a 28" IPS monitor too.
