The PR patch will be far from fail. As those of us that have tested it in beta will all tell you. I still can't see anything matching up to the large scale PvP combined arms gameplay that PR provides so I will definitely be hitting PR hard with the next patch coming out.

As for ArmA 2, I was a big fan of the first one. But I am also very mindful of the state that ArmA was released in, and the small ArmA playerbase. I am very very interested in seeing what happens with ArmA 2 but I'm going to ait and see for a little bit instead of jumping straight in. Besides I'm not sure if my computer can even run it very well yet, I might need to upgrade before I get it. :sweat:

AA3 looks very interesting especially being that it is FREE! Depending on how it turns out it might even be worth looking at expanding BigD over to AA3 as well as it should fit in well with our realism based shooters like PR and ArmA. Meaning a possible AA3 subforum and if we are really lucky possibly a BigD AA3 server. Though I am just speculating ATM of course.

Anyway, we are all going to be spoilt for choice this weekend, so many games so little time.

BTW what is the player cap on AA3? How many per team, etc? And any word on map sizes?

PR - will always be my favourite
AA3 - possibly spammy - too many 12yr olds playing it.
ARMA 2 - if it's not bugged like ARMA1 I'll play it.

For me it always comes down to the best game play.

Well. Basically, I plan on Downloading and installing PR this weekend. I can't play it though, because it is blocked here at school. So I will play PR on the holidays mixed with a little bit of Online Arma2.

Then hopefully, singleplayer Arma 2 when I'm back at school.

negative lol

AA3 isnt AA2, AA2 focused on CSS gameplay style rather then realism.

in AA3's case there was a large discussion on what it should be, realism won over, so it shouldnt be a spam fest and imo aa2 never was to begin with.
