    Recruit - 3rd Class
  1. GRO was a little off to me at first, but with more time I'm learning to like it... not a big fan of the future thing, but a damn good tac shooter that rewards teamwork and basic tactics... Day 1 (only been playing for 1.5 hours), got me a 8 kill streak, best in class, and MVP.. was/am very excited, sure probably nothing for you young studs but I'm old and slow... so this is rare. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19eWOusDs4Y&hd=1&t=2s other highlights, like the enemy using the HEAT suppressor on me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvymNowBUPY&hd=1
  2. I'll throw my 2 cents in... like it matters. Underneath this mess of a release with tons and tons of crashes, lockups, and disconnects... there hides a pretty damn good game... sure it's not as tactical as most of us would want, but it ain't no run and gun either... The potential for a decent game, both SP, MP... and even co-op is there... but UbiSoft really screwed up the PC release. IMO I have SP and MP videos on my You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/user/Magnum9846?feature=mhee But as I posted over at SimHQ, after 20 plus attempts at the SP campaign, and about 15 attempts at MP.... SP... "Theres a good game hidden underneath all this CRAP!" Besides the tech issues, what is it with all that HUD crap? Why is there no options, like in GRAW 1 and 2, to turn off all that crap... the HUD is just too busy... and what the hell is the purpose of blue rings around the weapons, and arrows with data text in the world? MP... "Actually pretty fun, if I could complete a game without a disconnect!" Yep... IMO... potential is there with proper support and a mod or two to get rid of all that HUD crap for a good game, not a great one... guess I'll check back in a month or tow... or not. JMO
  3. Anyone else have this bug where when you click the mouse to fire it exits back... before i add it to my list of bugs for UbiSoft... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aM2U1S0pyY&hd=1 (not seeing if a you tube vid can be inserted in a post here or not.) ohh... it automatically did it, lol... thx.
  4. Just FYI... I'm left handed too and was able to re-program my keys to the numbpad... and the tutorial info actually gives you the new program keys... make sure you have no controllers hooked up... that seems to be a problem.

    PC screens vs 360 screens...

    NP, I'm ashame that I've been registered here for so long and only have 22 post, 23 now... lol... Guess i need to get my post count up.
  6. Is it just me or does the 360 version look better then the PC version? http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3598752/GRFS_PC_vs_Xbox_360_screens.html#Post3598752 WARNING! Screens are from the intro, pre-mission... I do have the complete first mission on video (PC) in that same sub-forum and on my You Tube page, if intrested... but of course SPOILER alert. PS: Right now I can't get through a mission without crashes, (Screens of that in that sub-forum too, lol), so becoming very frustrating to play this right now. IMO

    No 1st person view

    Actually... i think this type of comment and conversation is nessisary... not everyone buys theses games day 1... I pre-ordered both 360 and PC version because i love the series... but I can understand people wanting to know this kind of info BEFORE buying... isn't that what a forum is for?

    No 1st person view

    I have to agree with the original poster... at least give us the option, like in GRAW2... there was an option to go 3rd person (default) or first person... played and loved 1st person view... biggest beef with FS... lack of options, Yes, I know I shouldn't compare it to GRAW2... but I didn't like default GRAW2, but loved it... and still play it with option choices. Not understanding why those options didn't come in FS.

    GHOST RECON FUTURE SOLDIER THOUGHTS/COMMENTARY

    IMO... theres a tactical game hidden in all that ridiculous HUD crap. (Why we didn't get options to turn those off like in GRAW2 is beyond me... and what the hell is the purpose of the blue rings around weapons... thats the worst HUD nonsense for me.)

    Rise of Flight... WW1 Sim

    I know you need an internet connection, and you have to register in GAME, and it connects each time you start it... so ya, that seems like a problem... but i never followed all that before.

    Rise of Flight... WW1 Sim

    Anyone know about Rise of Flight... pretty good WW1 flight sim... I didn't even know about it till E3 and the ad link at SimHQ... My first flight, first kill, and first death... video, lol: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r51It855fQE

    New Media JUNE 09

    just FYI... the version at E3 was a 360 console version, with easy settings only... I played it, most tactical game on a console to date... it was a beta, early beta... it had bugs and problems but the dev who I talked to listened well to my opinion and thoughts... check www.simhq.com for more info.
  14. Actually, I had a major system crash not to long ago, and ever since FRAPS and video editing has really seemed screwed up, there are some issues..too much bloom etc etc but for the most part it looks good, maybe not GREAT, but very good.... the complete settings are in one of the first screens on that thread, everything HIGH but not MAXED and played at...1920x1200x32 (widescreen). heres my specs: Dell XPS 720 Intel Core2 processor Q6600 4GB DDR2 SDRAM at 800MHz 768MB NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX SATA RAID 0 With Dual 160GB 10000 RPM Hard Drives 16X DVD+R/RW CD-RW Combination Drive X-Fi PCI Sound Card Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition For the majority of the game, I jumped from 35 to 55 fps... but did, in heavy vegitation or a lot of activity occasionally drop to the high 20's.
  15. If intrested... I've pretty much summed up my opinion of ArmA2 all in screens and a video... http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topi...tml#Post2734361 Of course, I'm just one persons opinion... so take it like that.
