    Bohemia bought Altar and ordered to reskin the next UFO game ASAP.

    At least now we know where all the tactics went to from ArmA 3.

    It's harder than I thought. Simply because I need to launch the game for one and for some time now I have a really strong urge not to.

    But hey it will happen eventually.

    You lazy fuck. I was really looking forward to a review by you, full of obscenities and vitriolic remarks.

    Well they just released a first campaign episode on dev branch. Haven't touched it yet but people say it's like Call of Duty where you are being hand held by Captain Price Staff Sergeant Adams so maybe I will have a field day with that.

    Whenever I will force myself to play it.

    The game engine looks incredible- would be fantastic to see a well made Jagged Alliance or Silent Storm clone built from it.

    Silent Storm's engine is way better than anything Bohemia's made. Have you ever seen how destruction works in ArmA? You're fire at the building and nothing happens until some threshold, then the model slowly sinks down on the z-axis and is replaced by "rubble". Meanwhile in SS you can shoot out individual blocks.

    Also, SS was programmed well. I played all three SS games in Linux/Wine. BIS's games won't even start. The usual reason why software won't work in Wine? non-standard (read: retarded) programming.

    ARMA 3 - Limited Deluxe Edition (PC CD) is coming up as a blackfriday flash sale in about 22 minutes at amazon.co.uk

    Is the game worth it at this point?

    Depends on how much they are going to pay you for it.

    That said, I installed and played it a bit for the first time in months last week, so I can also give a detailed review:

    It's shit. The campaign is shit. Everything is shit.

    He probably won't do now out of protest for the CDS bannings.

    Second part of the Campaign is out.
    Anyone had a chance to play it yet? I've been trying to since Sunday, but keep getting distracted by other things.

    Why the hell is this game so expensive on steam while enhanced steam tells me that the normal selling price is almost half everywhere else ?
