    I had a look, but I am not really interested in those sorts of games.

    I am not really a strategy game person... and the picture of slave trading I find a little distasteful.

    I would think in this day and age it might be clear to all that the greed is good and money is everything consumerism of the 80s and 90s and naughties doesn't lead anywhere worth going.

    When an empire of 300 million can spend three quarters of a trillion dollars on "defence" but can't afford a health care citizens for all its taxpayers... a country that consumed more than the rest of the world combined and actually wanted to spread that ideology because it thinks it is the best is a little frightening to me.

    Imagine a country with the population of China consuming at the rate of the US?

    More lethal to the Earth than any bomb made by man.

    Is not a strategy game is more of an make lots of money game(this money can be transformed in real money to).I have no idea what this game has to do with USA spending on weapons and consuming a lot of stuff.

    Is just a game.

    And you are not suspicious of a game that lets you make real money?


    Money doesn't come from no where.

    To earn real money from this game it has to cost real money to play... or it has the dumbest business model in the world.

    You have to collect more money than you give out for it to work... Business 101... unless it is a charity and there are donors giving you money for free.

    Arma 2 Combined Operations

    Anybody here play it?

    It's about as realistic as you're gonna get without having actual bullets fly over your head.

    I believe the game is too big for Xbox or any console for that matter to run.

    I am afraid it has been a long time since I upgraded my computers, I must say I very much enjoyed playing operation flashpoint even though there were a few problems in my view.

    I torrented it, with the intention to try it out, and see if its worth buying...and it ran like shit.

    And my rig ain't old, 2500k i5 cpu, 6950 gpu, 8 gb ram...so the lack of optimization pissed me off and I haven't tried it since.

    Getting awfully tempted to get a new GPU, or get a second 6950 this summer, so we will see, might give it another go.

    I don't think your rig is the problem, it's probably just because you torrented it. I torrented the Elder Scrolls Oblivion, and it wouldn't run properly either, not even on the lowest settings, where as I bought Skyrim, and it runs like a charm on ultra high settings. Never trust a torrent.

    I tried the legitimate demo of Flashpoint where you are an American soldier and are delivered by truck to a point over the hill from a small village, which you take. As you are moving down the hill from the top village to a village lower down enemy tanks start coming and you are supposed to do a runner down to the shoreline and get picked up in a helo that then gets shot down by a ZSU-23-4 and you parachute out and run to safety.

    Well that is the scripted solution... I normally carefully hunt down each of the enemy soldiers so there is just armour in the lower villiage and then go down and start firing rockets at the tanks and take them all out.
    You can win if you clear the village.

    The other thing I enjoy doing is during my escape without clearing the village to go over and take out the ZSU-23-4 before I go for the helo...

    I must say I preferred the Red Hammer campaign where I was issued with Russian kit instead of having to take it off the dead like I did as the American.

    Russian developers currently make the best flight sims... in my opinion of course, with Il-2 and its variants, and LOMAC, I wonder when they will come up with a Battlefield/OpFlashpoint type game with new Russian forces...

    I suspect the overhaul and replenishment of the Russian forces will largely drive a change in the computer gaming industry to have the Russians as the rivals to the western forces again instead of Chinese or Arab forces...

    Russians are still the OPFOR in Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3 and Arma2, 3 of the biggest MP FPS releases in recent years. Wink

    The Chinese never really panned out as the bad guys for some reason.

    That reminds me of a question I've been wanting to ask for some time. How do you Russians feel about the way you're portrayed in modern FPS games? For instance, how did you TR1 feel about the portrayal of the Soviet-Afghan war in Black Ops 2?

    Don't really care. I would like to see some games outside the typical "American good guys" theme; some role reversal would be nice.

    Most shooters I only play the MP portion of anyways and could care less about SP, so as long as both sides are balanced, I'm good.

    In Battlefield I do like the Russian voice acting, it is quite good and adds to immersion (bad guys talking broken English is lame).

    Thanks for the answer. As for me I don't really care either. The thing that irks me most is the inaccuracies of Russian equipment and gear. Although in BF3 the Russian's Humvee type vehicle being the Vodnik was pretty funny.

    Oh, and how could I forget the Lebed buggy? Laughing

    I am not Russian but the thing that irks me the most is what TR-1 hints at... balance.

    I don't want to play a game where the sides are largely balanced, I want games where each weapon is different and realistically portrayed so that their advantages and disadvantages can be exploited by someone with a bit of knowledge... as opposed to being able to just pick up a controller and do everything.

    Of course things like OpFp where all tanks had 3 crew... even Abrams tanks and M60s and T-55s had autoloaders...

    I did like the Red Hammer portion of the game, but pretty bored with the cliche story line... it seems that to be right you have to have an American accent... it couldn't possibly be that the people you are following orders from could be wrong and to be a hero and play the Russian you have to end up going rogue.

    Of course there was a time when plots were simple like Redneck Rampage and Doom II... kill the monsters.

    Haha, BF3 is nice and all but T-90s in Iran? Oh, and that part where you got to shoot that Su-25 with a flimsy stinger, it made me cringed when it went boom one time. However that part where you ride a tinted van as Dima, that part was a little balls to the wall for anyone, even VDV dont you think?
