Realism in video games is an interesting subject, for how can video games embody the realism of the real world? Yet, there are those who strive for realism, and it makes a better game. Take for example, Arma 2. This is a military combat simulation title, and everything in it has been made to reflect how it looks and feels in the real world. From how the guns look, the firing rate and style, how the bullets bounce off of objects, everything has been put in to ensure accuracy. In fact, this is the simulation armies all over the world use when training soldiers at times. So you know it's accurate if they're using it.

Arma 2 puts you in the midst of a fictional ex-Soviet Union state. One that is 225 square kilometers in size. If that sounds big, it is, and you have the freedom to go through all of it. There is a war going on, but it's not as simple as you might think. You are tasked with keeping the people in it safe, as well as ensuring control doesn't fall into the wrong hands. Through your actions, you'll determine how the people view you, and that can be the true factor in deciding victory or defeat.

The story Arma 2 will feature twists and turns that'll leave you speechless, all the while delivering intense and unpredictable combat at every turn.

And of course, there's multiplayer, where 50 player battles can happen. So, are you ready to join up?

On a few occasions, they ll take on a life of their own and exist apart from the game that spawned them, never calling, never visiting, only sending a multipack Christmas c...

A 160MB data patch ensuring Arma 2's compatibility with the recent Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead update has been released.


What does it take to rattle 80-some veteran players of Earth s most hardcore military sim? ShackTac bossman Dslyecxi pointed me to this insane firefight and extraction attempt in one of his recent videos. Short on ammo, shorter on men, and their backs literally against a wall that may or may not be indestructible, Dslyecxi leads the survivors of a trapped infantry unit as they improvise an escape plan. Dslyecxi contextualizes the chaos: "At the 33:40 mark, we're all critically low on ammo. As ...


GameSpy recently announced its surrender from the world of digital matchmaking, and, as with any wide-ranging defeat, there are bound to be casualties. Not Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, though. Bohemia have airlifted their expansion to the safety of Steam. And clinging desperately to it is the DayZ Mod, which, as a dependent of Arma 2: OA, has also been secured. "Besides the numerous fixes and optimizations which were introduced during the 1.63 beta program which covered almost a 2 year period ...
