Arma 2

Arma 2 is out for those of you who want something a bit more realistic than Call of Duty or Battlefield.



Dont be mad when someone picks you off from 450m and you dont even hear the gunshot before it hits, lol.

I played ARMA with 7 others and really loved the game. I can't even imagine how much better the game has gotten with this new release.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

All we ever did was play with 2 squads of 4 on expert mode, 7 times out of 10 the computer would kick our ass.

Just got the game installed last night, haven't tried the multiplayer yet, but damn this game is good. Looks like they've upped the computer AI even more. Looks like this is the first game to actually push my videocard.

This game seems to be cpu limited especially when you add in a bunch of AI.
I'm still having a hard time finding a good setup where I can get respectable frames.

i7 @ 4.0ghz, 6gb ram, gtx 285 sli, and a pretty quick dual raid 0 arrays (os/games)

I'm just running an 3.0ghz x64 6000+, 4gb ram, 9800 GTI and it runs just fine. It takes about 10-15 seconds for all the textures to show up when each map loads.

registered my first 1000m sniper kill today. I definately need a spotter as i unloaded like 2 10-round mags before i got the killshot. Wicked hard to adjust for haze,wind, AND drop.

Obviously it helps when you create your own scenario of unarmed civilians 1000m away to practice in, lol.

Do you typically play team type stuff, co-op, or every man for himself type stuff?

if you are looking for a cinematic style of game, this isnt it. This is for getting killed ruthlessly coldly and performing the same function to the other guys.

Grid coordinates and proper planning help. Its funny when a lot of my teammates from BF2 wouldnt get anything but killed while i would be racking up 80+ kills like it was nothing, simply because they didnt have very good situational awareness.

I'd say proper planning is definitely a must.
