RipTen - Yeah, I said it. There’s a damn good reason we gave ArmA III best PC game and best sim at this year’s E3 expo. It looks downright ridiculous.
Draw distance, you can has.
"make battlefield 3 looks dated" Guess which game of the two is being held back because of consoles? *flame shield*
LOL *flame shield* Since someone is going to try and TORCH you anyway, why not just "FLAME ON"
Odds are your current PC would be holding this back, too.
If you are implying Battlefield 3, then you are incorrect. DICE is developing it specifically for PC first then giving consoles a lesser version, which still looks to be a great experience.
Yeah, this game is probably gonna be like the last ARMA. Beautiful. But you had to wait till the NEXT gen PC video cards came out before you could max it.
How are the new ARMA games doing anyway? I know when I played the first one it was beautiful for the time but was buggy as hell at first. I think I remember hearing the second one was pretty much the same. Not knocking ARMA or BF3 but these two games have different priorities. ARMA has always been a simulation of combat while Battlefield has been more of an action game. I loved both ARMA and BF2 but played them each for different reasons.
AHA! they act like most gamers know what Arma III is. I never heard of such thing. Just shows how well this game is doing. And the footage still looks like a game. Until it looks like real life or close to it it's not really making anything else look outdated.
yeah, nice try! dated is a strong word especially if being used against BF3 which, isn't coming out yet!
By the look of the first screen shot this I would assume Arma 3 as that shadow on top of the APC is pretty rough. Overall the graphics look good in all of the screenshots but I don't think this will blow away Battlefield 3 (at least on the PC).
don't think so
Between BF3 and ARMA3... one will be highly polished and a joy to play, the other will be a buggy mess with many game breaking glitches (as usual). I know which one I'm going with.
i like your thinking. great time for PC gaming, getting both of these gems. also comparing the two is like chalk and cheese. anyone who has played arma will understand.
: / don't think so.
WOW! Even the thought that you can be playing as a grunt on the ground while another flies cluelessly in that F 35 is mind-boggling. Finally a good reason for upgrading my PC!
I'll believe it when I see it. This was actually the vision Spectrum Holobyte had when they first released Falcon 3.0 20 years ago...it was supposed to be part of the "Electronic Battlefield Series", which would ultimately consist of land combat as well, and all of it could be networked together (this was before internet gaming). Sadly it never got beyond a few flight sims. So far the closest thing has been Battlefield, but obviously they had to make the planes real slow and operate on tiny maps to make it happen (not to mention water down the flight model all to hell). If they can pull it off with a realistic flight model, and on top of that make the ground combat not be a boring chore like in previous Arma games, I'm on board.
LOL Falcon 3. You sir, are old. But yeah with games like ARMA the electronic battlefield has been realized.
Um, you can also fly jets in bf3
Yeah, that sounds cool. Warhawk is pretty cool too. I remember this one time I was flying this Warhawk, and a guy running around on the other side of the map had no idea I was flying in it and then I clustered him to death. But then that was years ago, so maybe I'm remembering it wrong.
WOW! I cant Believe its not butter!
I dont see anything in those screenshots that i havent already seen in games like uncharted, maybe the draw distance in those pictures is a little better, but that is all.
Lookin good so far.
What.. That's insane.
Looks absolutely real.. That kind of scares me in a way.
life graphics are overrated! Draw distance and resolution is limited and depending on your eyes sight. No HUD. Too much blur from moving objects.
Then dont play life. Infact why dont you leave life since its so overrated Idiots like you give gamers a bad name
WOOOO! I Love world of warcraft too lets be friends!
ArMA 3 shud be pretty amazing. Simulators are always more advanced.
Advanced - not necessarily fun. I love realistic-styled games, but there's a strong line between requiring skill and not even being able to get into a firefight because you'll die in two bullets from a rifle.
Fun is subjective though. Then again, ARMA's fanbase are pretty hardcore. The amount of pre-mission planning and co-ordination is just insane... not exactly to my tastes, but it still has a niche.
Ive played arma and have been playing battlefield since 1942 pre launch demo. Both games were fun. But nowadays gamers especially here on n4g believe fun exists in arcade type games only. . I believe this stems from the new generation growing up without arcades though and not the games themselves. . if your in your mid twenties or older you know firsthand the awesome experience I speak of. so take pity on the cod generation. they have been deprived.
@evrfighter To say that the Battlefield series is very realistic is untrue. DICE managed to blend fun elements with realistic elements really well in Battlefield, making it extremely fun to all playerbases while ArmA has always been about uber realism to the point that you're just walking around, waiting for an enemy to show up with no true gun fights but rather luck. I love realism in games, but too much just means for boredom.
