    That would be pretty cool actually.

    But who will want to do the "DM:ing"?

    Third sp campaign is out now. Is it even close to the amazing Resistance campaign or even the original OFP one? Better yet, is it even any good?

    We'll wait for Skyway to report on its realism to the real world.

  9. Are you sure that's not his father/little brother/DU/Russian soldier that impersonated Skyway?

    That's true, he's been sounding like a different guy... I chalked it up to him socializing and experiencing the outside world but you never know...

    I played 2/3 of the campaign.

    Because apparently I'm a masochist in denial. Oblivion's main quest was much more fun than this shit abomination. It's not that it's not up to previous ArmA's campaigns (because usually they weren't that good anyway), but this is boring crap. I couldn't stomach playing it anymore, so I dropped in the middle of a game (didn't even finish the second campaign). Don't bother with this stuff, even if you already bought and installed the game.

    Thanks. Depressing but as expected. Why I loved OFP and its expansions was not just the whole milsim thing but also the often intense and always interesting missions. The way these even got better in the expansions really made me hopeful for the sequels but the whole sp and mission design part went to shit. I'll just give this one a very wide berth then.

    Yeah, play the original's (and its add on Resistance's) campaigns and then play ArmA2 with all its expansions (except Czech one, unless you get it in a bundle). If you still want more, play the first ArmA later.

    Stay away from ArmA3.

    This thing is 50% off (29.99 - ~25 on ruskie store) until monday on Steam, and since it's 'free to try' also for a couple of days I installed it to see how it preforms on my 4 years old laptop. It does ok on standard settings (1600x900 ~40 FPS) so is it worth getting at that price or should I just keep playing Red Hammer? Considering also that Bohemia stuff is not on sale often.

    If you can get few bros to play ZEUS with you, it's a pretty nice game. I'm playing it from time to time with few lads of mine, and we're mostly doing SpecOps missions with one of us creating shit as a ZEUS. Also, you might try to join one of many communities which play this game weekly, doing major operations and stuff.


    SP campaign is pretty boring and generic. Just so you know.

    Don't you play the game? Do you need Codex's opinion whether to know if you like a game or not?

    I did play a little bit of it during the free weekend but I don't have as much free time to dedicate to gaming as I used to. And not all of us are cripple kids sitting in front of the home PC 24/7, thus, I asked for input in the ARMA 3 thread. And thanks to SmartCheetah I remembered about Zeus, which I had completely forgotten about.
