Perfect game for this setting I say. Might actually finally make me load arma3 onto my pc.

HO!


It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

They have their competition cut out for them. The Unsung Vietnam mod is Exceptional with a capital "E".

Sounds good to me!

It seems the DLC is a "creator DLC" which may be the unsung mod?

I don't have Arma3 but this is interesting.  Some very nice looking screenshots in that link.

Unsung is great, but having it as dlc with a dedicated sp campaign will be cool.  Also a dedicated Vietnam island shipping with it.

This was released....was thinking of getting but seems like single player content lacking, mostly more training type stuff.  Maybe once people come out with a lot more single player scenarios, I'll jump in.

Yeah. It's another bullshit co-op campaign. So God damn annoyed. I don't know why Bohemia keeps doing that. So frustrating.

The older iterations of Arma had AI you could put into co-op missions. I guess they got rid of that? I was annoyed to find I was Rambo running around the Ho Chi Minh Trail by myself.

Rimmy's crew do the campaign (to be continued)...


Wolfpack's more sober version:
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

I watched somebody review it a little and was really disappointed at how the arma3 engine has aged graphically? I played ARMA3 for about 5 minutes total many years ago and thought the graphics were amazing at release. Now it reminds me of operation flashpoint. Was it just the review I was watching? Do the graphics hold up still? Or is it now a game you have to love the mechanics so much that you can ignore the poor graphics.

It may be somebody's graphics settings. Forests/jungles are notoriously high-poly, and to keep frame rates reasonable on an older machine they may have dialled it down. I think the game still looks amazing, but I don't know what you're comparing it to.
