The first screenshots from the just-announced ARMA 3 military sim.
Looks generic, but they have lots of time still.
Generic? They're going for hyper-realism, not stylized art.
Lol generic Bet he plays socom and thinks its the best military sim evAr!!!!!111!
I don't think he ever played arma. It is indeed one of the most realistic games i ever played, both frustrating and fun.
Generic? LOL. You haven't played ARMA have you?
Tell me how many games on PS3 look like ArmA series, 2 maybe 3. There are 50+ games that look as generic as Killzone 2 & 3 on consoles and PC.
No, I haven't played it, but it still looks generic. And I haven't played Socom in years, don't have KZ3....Wow, tough crowd here. Your assumptions are just that, assumptions. And it's just an opinion, no need to act like a bunch of elitists. And I obviously have a PC so maybe if you a-holes would actually say something to make me want it instead of just assuming I'm comparing it to something elsee I would try it. B/c, as you can see in my original comment, I didn't compare it to anything. And I don't have to play it to say these screens look generic. They are really bland, absolutely nothing that stands out. It looks very good and real, but still generic. @ beastly - Halo/COD sucks - I prefer BFBC See below- that vid from beastly was good. Those screens do no justice to the gameplay whatsever. Instead of insulting/talking smack why don't you provide something that counterpoints what I'm saying. Like he did with the vid
- http://www.youtube.com/watc... This is more battlefield even more than battlefield!
Basically, it is the most realistic Fps available, despite sometimes being awkward and...can't explain it...how about the npc's can't speak like humans. Everything else is just about hyper realism really, Battlefield for example, is NOT realistic, it's sort of somewhere in the middle, Operation FP, DR and Red river are quite realistic but still not as realistic as this, the original Operation Flashpoint game for Pc only belongs to the crowd who make Arma. So in answer to your 'generic'...it's looks extremely generic because it's not trying to look different, it tries to look real. Which it does, it's gameplay is as close to real combat you'll get...without real combat of course
Didn't you essentially come in here making an elitist comment based on a laughably incorrect assumption? "Looks generic" implies "been there, done that, I'm obviously too cultured for something so bland", while saying "but they have of time still" implies "it does not yet meet my lofty superficial standards, but maybe it might if they try hard enough." There's no point going all defensive, pointing fingers and lamenting the righteous indignation of it all. All you had to do was either a)not comment as a silent indicator that you realise you were wrong; or b)just say "oh sorry then, guess I was wrong about that/my little critique doesn't apply here." You could even go on to say it's still not your type of game if you want. Man, why can't people just admit they were wrong anymore...
go play halo then!
What the hell? Why bring up Halo? It's about as far from Hyper-Realism as you can get.
Halo is anything but generic, what other game out there looks and plays like it? Thats right, Nothing. It isnt hyper realistic. Its just plain fun and balanced.
Well NO Sh!t...... did you see the system requirements and those screen shots? I'm so speechless right now as those graphics are AMAZING and they are not even CLOSE to being finished. The amount of processor power going towards A.I., physics, ballistics, and all the other REAL-Time events must be insane if you need that much power. This Sunday's Arma II Lan party won't be the same. Most likely will just sit there foaming at the mouth over these pics. Edit...I see a lot of post talking about "I rather play Halo or BFBC2" that's all fine and dandy but this is the ARMA series which is a Military Simulator and not your typical shooter. this is "almost" and very "similar" to what The Pentagon uses for some of it's electronic virtual troop training. Basically this is as real as it gets while sitting on the couch.
This is probably one of the most realistic looking games I have ever laid eyes on.
Why didn't they just update Arma 2 with the new map & textures, graphics look about the same
ok ok now im upgrading my pc.
Wow nice, arma 2 was awesome
might have a new graphics king in route. cant wait to see some gameplay!
After seeing these pics I just can't imagine how good this is gonna look with the A.C.E. Mod 3. Ultra Photo Realistic! BF3 may just have to move over.
my 580 is crying tears tennis-ball-sized. Man, they should have refined the engine of the 2nd, which basically runs like shit.
