APOS is truly a game where the AI never ceases to amaze me. They are agressive and seem to make good tactical decisions for the most part.
(for example that stuart counterattack on the right flank in my pics. the only reason why that halftrack survived was luck. Of corse the stuarts wouldn't have had a chance to defeat my tigers but if I had Panzer 4s they could have destroyed them by flank and rear shots)


And DayZ is just glorious. If you have Arma 2 combined operations or arma 2 and operation arrowhead you should definetly try the mod out.

God damn it Avtomat. I bought the APOS & DLC bundle a couple of days ago when it was on sale but can't play it 'til I get back home from uni. Your screens aren't doing much to help me come to terms with the situation.
I really hope to get into the game during the summer, if I have the time, as it seems like one of the most promising WWII tactical sims I've seen in the latest time, even if I do prefer their tank simulator, SF: Kharkov '42. Anyone heard any rumours on when they might be releasing the sequel to it perchance?

This is a simulator dealing with the M60A1 and the T62 obr. 1972 tanks.
Great sim and it lets you controll not only your tank, but puts you in charge of the entire battle, much like APOS but you don't have the god's eye view. (controlling units like that can get frustrating belive me.)

Heres some gunnery from the M60

(the player is using the M60's secondary sights for some reason)
Theres a lot of videos about the game on Graviteam's youtube channel.

Great shots Avto

The AI seems even better in the latest patch, more cunning and tactical, and using more flanking manouvers.

I tried getting into SABOW but found it a bit too clunky - maybe it need some more patches and mods like SF has, so it just needs time I guess.

I would much prefer them to make a RTS like APOS in the setting of the battles in SABOW; Iran-Iraq, Afghanistan and Angola, that would be amazing.

BTW, there's a setting to let you control "allied" units that normally would be computer-controlled, can't remember excactly the name but it's recommended to turn on. Also, I recommend turning off night battles, it lets both you and the AI gather strength during night turns and seems more realistic than constant night encounters.

@Kapula glad to hear you got the game, hope you enjoy

Yeah, I'm aware of SA:BOW, but it's not really my cup of tea.
I much prefer the WW2 theatre, these 'forgotten' battles don't really pique my interest. I haven't tried it yet though, a demo might change my mind.

Sometimes I think they just use random generators for those names in-game

Some classic gaming!

That looked great. Nice how you stacked up properly and checked your corners. Except that one guy at the end.

I remember the AI in R63 having much better reaction times than that.

Nice video. Though whenever I try to play Raven Shield on lan with my brother the player movements are unbelievable jerky (except for the hosting player), why are they not like that in the video?

It's the 3rd, Curse Of Monkey Island. Good fun playing it again, I think it's the third time now.

Re-playing Fallout 3 again. In my opinion it's better than New Vegas in some ways. Bigger map, more locations, better graphics, and it generally has more atmosphere to it. I have the GOTY version and I'm really looking forward to play the pitt, broken steel, and point lookout. This time I'm not generally playing as a ''good'' character. I'm not intentionally playing as a bad character though. I often let MONEY decide my actions!

Fallout 3 is a *great* game. But I like Vegas a lot as well.

I liked both games, though I think the story (Legion VS NCR) was rather interesting. After using the weapons, such as the lever action rifles and shotguns, I can't go back to FO3 though.

I did notice that the FO NV map is indeed smaller. I am playing through it again it did not take me much time to walk almost halfway across the map.
