    I say again, it's NOT a game........
     
  8. ArmA1 was patched last month resulting in a noticeable performance boost, so the omens are good.

    A 'beta' version of ArmA2 has been released in Germany to flush the worst bugs out of the system. The UK release on 19 June should include most of the patches between now and then.

    Arma2.com

    Seems the developers agree. Amongst the proper civilians (not the beach bums of ArmA1) there are ladies - at least one of whom is a hooker - but they can't be armed IIRC.
     
  9. Hi all

    Some people have already bought the German version, where it looks like it is being beta tested.

    There are some good home produced videos of ArmA II on youtube. Always prefer those to publishers trailers.

    Here is one to be going on with, do your self a favour and click the HD button bottom right of the video to watch it in Hi Definition and turn up the sound:

    ArmA II is due out in the UK on the 19th of June.

  10. Hi all

    On youtube richiespeedisback has posted some more battalion sized battles.

    Remember to do your self a favour and click the HD button bottom right of the video to watch it in Hi Definition and turn up the sound for each of these videos.

    The first is online battle in the day where he is playing the part of a sniper.

    The second is an Amazing 1500 AI battle fought at dawn and in the middle of a storm.

    Awesome!

    No wonder the Real Virtuality engine has become the "De Facto" NATO simulation software.

    The game has been described on the BBC and Several Gaming sites as the most eagerly awaited game of the summer and there is talk of ArmA II taking the Game of the Year award like its Bohemia Interactive predecessor OFP.
