Arma 3

#1
Just purchased the public Alpha version of Arma 3 on Steam and awaiting download.

I know it will buggy as hell as Alpha but then all the Arma series have been and I still enjoy it.

Lots of people moan on about the DCS series which is released in a similar way, buy into the Beta versions and they improve over time through patching. I think its a good idea, as a fan of these somewhat 'non commercialised' simulators, releasing Alpha and Beta's give the developers good cash flow to develop the game, if we had to wait only for a finished product, many of these developers wouldnt make it.

And as I cant see another Arma 3 thread around here, have this one for starters!

Bought this when it released last Tuesday and I'm very impressed on how, for an alpha, polished and stable it is. It runs better than a lot of full release titles (Aliens Colonoscopy Marines, anyone?).

Yes there are bugs and there isn't a lot to do yet, single player wise, but I'm very impressed so far.

The modding/editing community are already out in force with a few addons and scripts already, some ported over from ArmA 2.

I have the DCS series and am slowly wading through the (massive) manuals on some of the more turgid conference calls I'm on. Combined Arms next. Someone sent me an ARMA 3 key but I don't think I've got time to dabble.

Mouse and keyboard is far better for FPS gaming. But whatever works
I would have agreed with you 8 years ago, but that amount of time spent on consoles has swayed me to the dark side! It's much more comfortable on the hands and wrists. I suppose if you sit at a pc all day for work, the last thing you want is to do the same when gaming. I guess it's just what you get used to. :)
