On today’s Highlight Reel we have ArmA III AT-ATs, illegal hair loss in GTA V, sitting guardians in Destiny and much more!
First-person military shooters don't get much more hardcore than Arma III. And yet, its most diehard fans think they can do even better.
I'm sure there are Halo fans out there who are super into the universe but feel like the actual combat of the series is too, I don't know, comical. This mod for ArmA III will fix that for you and then some.
And that one topic is: DayZ! Still, questions about the game cause headaches for a lot of newspawns in the recent video of Friendly in Cherno. The lucky ones can continue their journey with some extra gear, but everyone else has no other choice but to roll a new character.
The horse riding gameplay we've seen in Metal Gear Solid V's trailer is just too much for ArmA III and its engine to handle. But sacrificing realism in order to remake the original trailer perfectly in a completely different environment is a good idea: It'll make everything and everyone look silly.
Adding zombies, ala DayZ, isn't the only way you can mod military shooter ArmA. You can also do the awesome thing, and add dinosaurs.
No need to waste characters to try out whether shooting someone's gun would kill its owner or not, how vaulting affects your fall, or whether crawling or rolling are faster. Here's the first episode of DayZ Standalone Mythbusters, which will hopefully help extend your character's life in Chernarus.
You'll die a lot in DayZ. After a (hopefully) successful respawn, you have to go through the same routine: Run for hours, survive until you find something useful, head to your favorite location for military gear, and, if you're still alive, with guns and enough ammo in your pocket you might finally feel safe.
This is the truth about DayZ. No matter how good your gear is, how careful you are, death will find you wherever you are. And it will strike unexpectedly.
Forming squads, gearing up and taking down zombies. That's what DayZ is all about, right? Well, not entirely. Falling off ladders, dying from rotten bananas and being chased by zombies that can walk through walls, while trying to find players nearby? That's more like it!
We've seen numerous examples of bandit brutality in DayZ, but this concept really surpasses everything. If you get caught by this group of YouTubers, you have to choose between singing your country's national anthem or being shot. It's pretty simple.
PC Gamer have gone mad. Building a new rig for reviews and testing, they didn't settle on components that meet today's "recommended" specs. They went for components that meet "Thor's Mighty Mjölnir" standards, and the results are terrifying.
There are a few out there who just couldn't wait for the PC port of Grand Theft Auto V. So they decided to mod another fresh open-world game, ArmA III, to give it a much more GTA-esque flavor.
One of ArmA III's biggest selling points is its realism—it's a modern combat simulation that gives players a sandbox to play out scenarios not possible in most other games. So I was certainly surprised to see this footage by Moerderhoschi785, where a player rides a drone like he was the Green Goblin or something.
Bohemia Interactive's ArmA III, a super-realistic modern combat simulation, is out today. I've been playing the retail release for over a week now, so under normal circumstances this is where a formal review of ArmA III would go. But with ArmA III, that just doesn't feel right.
Altis, the main island in ArmA III, is huge, but one might think it's just a big, homogenous natural environment—nothing compared to, say, GTA V. It's not like that at all: the map has its own share of unique locations, like this solar tower featured in YouTuber Kyle B's video, which is perfect for a little bit of fun.
Sandbox games are great at giving you vast worlds, but their interiors are often boring and lifeless. In ArmA III, the open-world shooter that's out for PC on September 12, at least there's an explanation.
It's almost like the AI in this clip of ArmA III by APPAMANIAC has a hive mind—and the hive mind decided that instead of getting to safety or something, they should all just...pile up around the dead body. Like they're trying to protect it or something! It's silly, but amusing.
Not in terms of literal game size, at least. No, the honour of the game with the biggest world will surely go to Bohemia's upcoming ArmA III, which takes place on an island so damn big one of its designers went out and made this comparison chart.
