Arma 3 sales cross 1 million

We're always talking about DayZ sales -- now over 2 million -- but the game that made DayZ possible, Arma, is quietly doing well in its own right for developer Bohemia. Arma 3 has just crossed one million sold. Bohemia boss Marek Spanel announced the milestone on Twitter and provided a visual roadmap for the next two years of Arma 3. It includes a major expansion and helicopter and marksmen DLC.

Arma 3 go karts are no longer an April Fools' Day gag

I have a real love-hate relationship with April Fools' Day. I love the creativity on display, but hate that most of the cool things "announced" on that day are often just videos. Sometimes, the gags are real, and the results ...

T-wrecked: Arma 3 getting a dinosaur mod

Arma always seems like the reasonable next step for people who like Battlefield for its tactical or somewhat sim-like elements. Apparently it's the next destination for those who enjoy Battlefield's dinosaur Easter eggs as well, because someone is making a full dinosaur mod for Arma 3. I am excited for it. Dinosaurs should be the next zombie. Throw 'em in everything.

A Chernarus Sing Along in DayZ - Challenge Scot!
by Jamie McGinn

This week's challenge is in the Arma 2 mod DayZ, in which I have to track down another player, hope that they don't shoot me on sight, and then get them to sing me a song. DayZ is notorious for having a very hostile player base, so actually managing to even talk to another player without getting killed instantly is quite the achievement all on its own!

If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!

New releases: Scary, porcine machines photo
New releases: Scary, porcine machines
by Fraser Brown

I'm still recovering from last week's Outlast, and now we've got another bloody terrifying first-person horror title to scare our pants clean off in the form of Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. I confess that reviews, such as our lovely Jim's, have cooled my excitement a bit, as The Chinese Room's love of story above all else has diminished the horrific terror found in the first game. 

On top of Amnesia, that Killzone: Mercenary thingymabob is coming out; Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is dropping, so Squarephiles and Disneyphiles have something to get excited about; Arma III is finally leaving beta and becoming a big boy game, which is splendid, because it's rad; and everything Elder Scrolls gets collected in an anthology pack. All this and more is launching this week.

Anything tickling your undercarriage?
