New Arma 3 video footage? On my Sunday? Thanks, world. Czech channel Gamepage.cz (http://www.ceskatelevize.cz/porady/1095870977-game-page/212563242600014/?clanek=1006) has exercised its home court advantage to secure minutes of totally new in-game footage of Arma 3, which could be the PC‚??s prettiest game (http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/02/23/arma-3-community-alpha/) when it releases. Lead Designer Ivan Buchta narrates as a few features are shown in detail, including stealthy underwater SDVs and the recently-announced island of Stratis (http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/04/19/arma-3-gains-over-19-square-km-of-island-real-estate-trailer-screenshots/). I‚??ve taken the opportunity to jot up some observations.



0:55 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnFy1IvvIGM#t=55s) ‚?? Bikinis confirmed.

1:05 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnFy1IvvIGM#t=1m5s) ‚?? I still can‚??t believe Bohemia is committing this much to underwater simulation. The textures and ambient life down here is absolutely generous. Live feed cameras in the ****pit? Wow; looking forward to having those in tanks and other land vehicles. The underwater lighting feels a little global, though. Glad to finally see steering animations in first-person.

2:45 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnFy1IvvIGM#t=2m45s) ‚?? Look at those ridges. You don‚??t see those kinds of dramatic peaks and valleys in Arma 2‚?≤s stock maps. Narrow dirt roads overlooking valleys. Stratis looks great.

3:47 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnFy1IvvIGM#t=3m47s) ‚?? I‚??m not crazy about that running animation, honestly. It looks like he‚??s bounding a lot, and his arms seem pretty static.

5:10 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnFy1IvvIGM#t=5m10s) ‚?? Chem lights confirmed. That‚??ll be a welcome mechanic that connects air support (either the rescuing type, or the shooty type) with ground teams.
