there's a new mod out for Arma 2. and it's amazing

adds this baby to the game. and although Arma 2 already had a number of AH-64 in different variants (both in-game and added with mods), this one dwarfs them all. its fidelity and amount of details will leave any aviation enthusiast speechless 

 

just look at this ****pit!

and the fun part? it's interactive. you can press any button or toggle any switch. hell, even to start 'er up you'll need to follow a proper procedure (battery, APU, engines on, torque in "FLY", rotor brake off). and don't even get me started on the weapon systems  :w00t:

 

haven't been so excited about a project in a while... it's like a free DCS Apache, or something. it's like Christmas!  :dancing:

 

Clue me in where you found that. Haven't gotten balls-deep into ArmA II since I've been toying around with the newfangled ArmA III beta.

 

Also this during a single-player mission. My wingman got a little too close to some Red SHORAD and took 3 SA-9 hits for his trouble. Eventually the craft gave out within sight of the airstrip, but it was close enough that he could swim to shore and hoof it back to base  :biggrin:

I check that forum for new releases every day. It's amazing how much cool stuff you can get for free thanks to modders

Jesus, I wish I had the skillz to play and enjoy Arma. But I don't, I have to enjoy it vicariously through you lot.

That's how I feel when I read about you fine folks waxing poetic about games like Company of Heroes or <something>: Total War.  I know they're great games, I also know how ruthlessly I'd get obliterated in one of those games, on account of how much I suck at RTS games.

Lately, been playing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow on the pc.  Played through the game on PS3, but not the DLC chapters, therefore trying to get to them, but enjoying the game.  I'm a Castlevania fan from way back and don't understand the hate for this game.  I get some complications through the development of the title, but feel that they really captured the vibe and story with this game, if not for trying something new and profound to the series.  Sorry for the size of the photo, been awhile since I posted a pic, but the level design is really well done, including the scope of everything.  Also, awaiting my copy of Diablo 3 for the PS3.  I enjoyed, more than others on the PC after respective patching, and look forward to the couch co-op and controller gameplay of this one.  Especially due to the looting enhancements.  If anyone is also planning on playing the PS3 version, let me know.

The last screen I enjoy because it gives a nod back to the mapping layout and portraying of earlier titles between levels.

Yay, I finally got the complete Sunite Garb fashion outfit:

Now the only thing left to do is scoop up some black dye bottles (in about a week I'll have enough Zen) and dye all the white parts black.  Black, green, and pink?  It will be badass.

On second thought, maybe I should leave the white as is and dye the currently pink flower parts black?  Methinks that would be pretty snazzy.

Black and Green are the colours of House Atreides in the Dune universe.

Crap.  What are the Harkonnen colors?

Red and Blue heraldry. Blue uniforms.

 

edit: in games, from Dune 2 onward uniforms were changed to red and Atreides were given the blue ones. Seems to have been a marketing decission because of lingering Cold War indoctrination: the good guys in popular media cannot be Red ;) (Similar to how the glow in the original Tron movie had to be changed :p )

edit 2: funny enough the games also took away the green uniforms of House Atreides and gave them to House Ordo.

The colour red would, before Dune 2, be mostly associated with House Atreides (even though it was one of the two Harkonnen colours) because of Atreides heraldry being a red Hawk.

The Festival garb looks best on the female chrs, imo. The male chrs. look like they're wearing 70's lounge pj's or something.

I wonder what new items they're adding at the mid-point.

So what do you get when you pickpocket a tree? Maple syrup and some bark lint?

My guess would be a splinter in your finger.

you didn't read the ballad

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

I did, but it's not funny. And doesn't say if that's what you actually receive when pickpocketing, either. Could just be a lore scroll one finds on a table for all I know.

I don't think sorophx actually used the pickpocket ability on the tree. He read the poem and it inspired the screenshot.
