We've been looking closer to this one, since I like the topology of maps, I like the animations on characters, specially those regarding running and turning, and I am thinking how to bring all that look and feel to ArmA, which IMO is perfectly possible...
In fact, I've been asked for a HD sort of terrain as a lab to try these kind of stuff
Also, I paid attention to those soft craters made by explosions on grounds, not that kind of ground object over terrain, but some kind of soft hole... made on the fly...
Also I like those incidental voices related to actual situations, is very natural to hear phrases like "reloading" or, more customized, "die you son of a b****"... it doesn't sound robotic and thus is an awesome little improvement...
Apart of those, we should look at that damage or destruction system which I guess it's some sort of evolution coming from BC series... at this stage, I couldn't tell if BIS engine could achieve that level of cinematic COD like gameplay... but it's clear that this is a different approach, so what become interesting is to see where BIS guys can go so far, since we've been happily surprised in the past...
BTW, I love ArmAverse, but I knew BF first, and I love it too
EDIT : I hate how it looks inside a chopper... those HUDs and tilting stuff looks like a nintendo o ps3 sort of game which I consider annoying most of the time... cheers!

80 bucks is absurd. no way In hell am I going to spend that on a game, especially if it won't get an SDK.
I'm really enjoying BF3, I love Arma but its good to be having a bit of fun on BF without all the serious sim side for a bit of a change. You can see my stats on Trickster1982 on battlelog if your interested, I'm not brilliant but I've had some good sniper kills (I play good recon, not camping) and I've unlocked loads of gadgets for the support role, and I guess maybe down to Arma I dont play like a hyperactive 12 year old rushing around either so I do try to employ some tactics and support my squad
80? Where did you get that? O_o
Arma's engine probably can do that amount of destruction if BI wanted to, it takes a LOT of assets however and for the larger stuff I've seen how BF3 uses the dust masking. As for gameplay I highly doubt we'd see anything like COD for Arma that's just silly.
The HUD's aren't so bad, aviation HUD's are actually quite simple and for all issues BF3 did them well though aircraft HUD's are painful to look at since the climb ladder likes to move off screen and they could have done a better job with the Havoc's HUD so that it actually stays in the display screen.
I don't think it's 80 bucks, closer to 60

There is no master plot; there is no system; the only thing consistent in this world is inconsistency.

WHAT!?!?! $80!?!? Thats crazy...
Look online and you can find it much cheaper I'm sure.
Here in the UK I got it for £30 ($47) from Zavvi and that's including the new map.
Yeah, BF3 is fun for faster paced action and it does look awesome even if a bit overdone Hollywood. It certainly won't keep me playing for long but should keep me busy until ARMA3
i got it for 50 bucks. ozgameshop.com

great game imo. Am only on level 4, but its fun trying to act tactically and screw the other team over. works best when there tow or more guys working together spontaneously.

Thing is I live outside the US currently, and it tells me it is 50 GBP. I guess ill order it from somewhere else eventually but I really would like to use origin.
Friend invited me over to play it and...eugh, I want to meet the people that decided vehicles should need unlocked features, removed medic and support request functions from commos rose and limited squads to four people.
There is just one thing I keep wondering..why...why do people say this is a beautiful game? The asthetic is hideous, my first guess is "well their being artistic in portraying the atomsosphere of a war" only it's far overdone. It feels as though my character is wearing a used coffee filter over his face all the time!
Worse yet I keep thinking that they were mimicing Dragon Rising's art style, seriously compare the two.
BF2 had a beautiful asthetic with the rich color and none of that 'real if brown' bs as did BC1, hell even BC2 wasn't as bad, this just looks like a B movie attempt to make the game feel more gritty with the high contrast low saturation stuff. Maybe my expectations were just too high, Battlefield 3 not Bad Company 3 or Call of Battlefield.
