    I saw Arma III Alpha last week and I was looking all over the internet to find any information about it (no YouTube videos though) and I came up dry. Has anyone played it? For $29.99 and a free copy of the finished game when it's released, it sounds like a helluva deal if the game isn't terrible. I'm getting accustomed to games costing $49.99 on the PC.

    I have the Arma Alpha and it is good. There are a limited number of scenarios and vehicles, but still worthwhile. Arma has a great modding community and community in general. Well worth the investment.

    Gameplay-wise: is it highly flawed? I know it's only the alpha, but does it have severe clipping issues or anything like that?

    Well, I honestly have played 10 minutes and cannot comment on that. This is finals week at school (lame quarter system).

    However, later this weekend I will be putting in some quality time with the Alpha and I will report back. Feel free to message me in a few days if you don't hear from me.

    I can tell you though the Track Mania Stadium 2 Beta is legit.
  10. I have logged in over 70 hours into the Kenshi game. It is amazing experience that is only going to get better with time. Not to mention I can put my ideas and thoughts on the forums and maybe influence the game in a way. So sick!
