Title: ArmA Gold and ArmA-2
Post by: ZOldDude on January 19, 2008, 01:37:30 am
ArmA Gold and ArmA-2 shipping dates:
ArmA Gold (US ATARI) 2-20-8 at Newegg.com
ArmA-2 at Gamestop/EB 2-18-8

I can't find a copy of ArmA anyplace in California and no store can order as they say is is discontinued.

Looks like I will be playing ArmA-2 for awhile soon!

That doesn't sound very good. Can't be much difference from the current ArmA patches.

went to fry's compter store today because i had to drop parents off at airport and frys is right next door, didnt have arma in there...
they had a copy of bf2 for 9 bucks so i picked that up, along with a nifty soldering iron and some fresh solder so i can test work on actually creating hardware devices. I want to see what can be made from some parallel ports, usb cables, soldering iron, various electrical components and a whole shitload of free time.

Icould have told you Fry's does not carry ArmA...they sent back all unsold copies after Xmas.

Build a Ram HD....I have a box full of PC-2100!

Oh I see.
Which one ArmA-2?
ArmA Gold is just US ArmA with the QG addon.

What I find to be strange is the fact that, even though I lurk every major english gaming websites, I haven't even heard a tiny mention of ArmA 2.
Hell, I found out about it only 5 minutes ago at the time of this writing.
In a way this has me worried, why won't Bohemia Interactive commercialize their game, or even talk about it in public, when it's ten days away from release.

Unfortunately marketing is a big part of a game's success. If Arma2 is out in 10 days there's a risk that it ends up like Vietcong.

It is ArmA Gold that is out 10 days from now (ArmA prepacked with QG).

Newegg's price is $3 less than EB/Gamestop and has free shipping.
Both are now out-of-stock untill the 26th.

If I "tell" you anything I will just be reporting the facts as I find them on the big software sales sites.

It's february 27th, 12:10 at night.
You owe me a donut, I expect the donut to be mailed to my apartment within 5 business days.
For the mental anguish I have experienced due to your false claims of the alleged Arma 2 release date, you will hear from my lawyer very soon.

P.S Enclose twelve dollars for a new pair of pants and we can make up.

Post by: ZOldDude on February 27, 2008, 09:47:10 am
1) Has nothing to do with the bet.
2) They won't let me ship donuts to Toronto.
2a) They won't let me fly my plane into Downsview Airport...or near it so I can't bring them myself if I had lost the bet.

You can buy pants for $12?!

Post by: ZOldDude on March 03, 2008, 06:26:35 am
Well it's now 3-2-08 and -neither- Newegg or EB/Gamestop have -either- of these games.
So much BS for a person like me that -wants- to buy a copy of both.
Title: Re: ArmA Gold and ArmA-2
Post by: MrMedic on March 03, 2008, 04:15:43 pm
i went into town into a shop i usually get my games from and they had no idea when it was going to be released , one of them said he had heard it was cancelled .. so i am not sure what exactly is happening with arma 2 but it seems it could be a long way away.
Title: Re: ArmA Gold and ArmA-2
Post by: Easy_tiger on March 04, 2008, 07:51:45 pm
my guestimate is Q4/08  but prolly going to end up Q1/09.

It is wholly possible that they may hold back and wait for OFP2 to be released (to see if its better :P)

Actually the official word is they're waiting for all cheaters to die. Here's hoping they don't procreate, or that at least the jerk gene is recessive.
Title: Re: ArmA Gold and ArmA-2
Post by: ZOldDude on March 05, 2008, 06:18:40 am
That sounds uninspiring.
I would rather have the game and play with a few cheaters than -not- have the game at all.
I have seven computers on my LAN and could always have people over as well.
