  1. Geez that was a bad trailer. Honestly, I didn't think they could stuff GR up more than Breakpoint, but they did it in style. At some point, you feel like Ubi will stop and reflect on the poor sales and reception and actually go back to the roots. Particularly, as you're starting to see the rise and heavy support for some serious tactical shooters. Ready or Not for example, as hardcore as it gets and the fans love it. What excites me about that is, if you think back to where GR started, it was CQB Raven Shield, Rogue Spear etc. And eventually, the Devs moved the battle outdoors into more rural environments. Surely, the Devs of RoN will eventually see the opportunity... Predicted here first.
  2. I’m thinking about putting together a new small tournament with all the GR players, probably via the Discord channel . I was thinking each mission maker could provide one mission with scoring for objectives completed. I’d be hoping for some classic GR style missions and on some classic maps. Anyone interested in contributing?
  3. So stoked I discovered this Discord - finally playing some GR coop again with some GR fans in my timezone. The old GR flame is alive and burning bright!
  4. Just throwing up an error along the lines of 'it's not secure'.
  5. Ah, well not much gaming these days. Lots of rock climbing. play a board game called Memoir 44 with a few friends, my military strategy fix, but more social than gaming on a machine.
  6. Original campaign in sp. Then played a couple of coop missions with a couple of chaps last night.
  7. 20 years….faaaark. We old. Just reinstalled GR to play through the campaigns again. Then I discovered the Discord channel! Coop here I come!
  8. The maps are high quality and the AI quick and deadly. Not yo mention trying to establish whether they’re fried or foe (they will fake being friendly moments before they draw their weapon on you).
  9. Just started playing RoN, very polished Alpha - I would even call it a full release even though they're still working on it. Excellent in SP or COOP - very realistic, tactical hardcore shooter. Absolutely no run'n'gun possible as the default is a walk vs a shuffle. The enemy are lethal and the missions highly engaging. Highly recommended!
  10. add me on steam Lightspeed_aust and you'll need to invest in a gunstock once you taste Onward
  11. dude! let's organise some games! Steam version of Onward is best. easy to set up and incredible immersion - you may not play fps after this.
  12. Just started playing it with my new Oculus Quest 2, fantastic milsim, nothing else to say really. Definitely buy a gunstock for improved aiming, but otherwise, very immersive. Anyone playing it?
  13. You dropped game dev? What are you up to these days?
  14. You worked on PF? Maybe on a technicality they were called Ghosts, but SOG were the original in my book, definitely the essence of covert ops. In fact, I wouldn’t even call it a technicality, they just couldn’t talk about what was going on in Vietnam for 20 years.
  15. This is really where the Ghosts began, back in Vietnam, covert ops behind enemy lines, denied ops - MACV SOG. If you've got Arma 3 then highly recommend the download. I've just started scripting a SP campaign and there are already a bunch of missions out there. This IS the original Ghost Recon.
  16. I've just seen a couple of videos which refer to immersive mode and the ability to make the game much more authentic with plenty of options. Is it true then that the game can be a great GR game? Or are the vids not telling the whole story?
  17. OMG - SE4 is my new favourite game. I feel like I'm experiencing that white knuckle game play of OGR again. I've put settings on Authentic Hardcore which means no marking tangos, no sniping support, more aggressive enemy, no hud (the only issue is not being able to see where objectives are on the map!). One of the things I love about this game, is that the difficulty settings make a big difference and make sense. At base level, there's no bullet drop, just shoot straight, less aggressive AI, ability to mark enemy and know where they are at all times. As you move up in difficulty, you can make it harder / more realistic to the point that you have no aids and can't save the mission. That makes for a very realistic GR type gaming experience. I believe you can even take one person into a coop experience. The WW2 maps and level design are beautiful and immersive - and truly unlimited ways to approach the mission - almost unlimited replayability. Go loud, stay stealthy - your choice. For lovers of OGR, if you haven't already, wait for a sale and pick this up (recommend deluxe for some extra maps/missions including the opportunity to take down Hitler).
  18. Just picked it up cheap on Steam and recommend it for some lone wolf. light hearted gameplay. Campaign seems cool and missions are long, you can play it your way really, go full stealth or pick of every tango. Difficulty level is easily adjustable and makes a big difference to your sniping experience. Enuff said, give it a go if you like.
  19. That does look good, I think it's time to pull it out again!
