why were the 80s so fucking aesthetic bros
>>41187853Because the Golan brothers propaganda movies were the fucking best and it was hidden from the USA peoples who was taking control of them.>Delta force
>>4118785380's/90's was the peak 6 color and woodland
>>41187976Is this from the Iranian embassy siege?
DID SOMEBODY SAY '80s THREAD?
is this before soldiers wore 200 pounds of gear and became less effective?
Panama/Grenada was the peak,we knocked those tinpot dictators out just to show the world how baddass our military had become since Vietnam
Speaking of 80's aesthetics, who's looking forward to '83?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1u9oyFkXca4>Cold War gone hot>Made by the devs of Red Orchestra and Rising Storm
>>41188700fuck yes, my dick got hard when i saw that for the first time. I can't wait to mow down commies with a L1A1 or ventilate Birtbongs with a SVD
>>41187853B/c there were no SJW millennial faggots!
>>41188819I've gotten to used to pretending to speak Vietnamese in RS2, I've gotta start practicing an offensive Russian accent.
>>41188876just listen to allot of hardbass from now until it comes out,
>>41188700Looks like an ass tbqh.
>>41188842You are a millennial though
>>41189054well Rising storm 2 was ass when it first came out but it got better, you have to warm up to these things annon
>>41188700I'm more hyped for Squad 1985https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nupkXjbaok
>>41189321>teaser released in 2017>zero news sinceIs this thing ever coming out?At least there's an experienced dev studio behind '85.
>>41188700I'm confused, who the fuck are Antimatter Games? RO and Rising Storm were made by Tripwire, and basically started off from modding UT2K4 (RO1 and Killing Floor were total conversions that became standalone games). Did they finally split whatever idiots are doing KF2 off from the RO/Rising Storm team?
>>41189166Has it improved much? Picked it up on launch based on how much I loved Rising Storm (RO2 was good, but I was a goddamn menace with a BAR), but I just couldn't get into it the same way. Everything felt...weird.
>>41189330>zero news sinceThey've been regularly posting updates and teased some gameplay a couple months agohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yr1Jr7ZiQKcI was really excited for '83 but \what they're selling looks closer to Battlefield than RO2, RS2 or Squad. It looks closer to a Michael Bay film than a real portrayal of something like Able Archer going hot, which is why I'm still more hyped for Escalation
>>41189054Doesn't look any worse than RS2, and that wasn't too bad. Graphics are always dated on these sorts of games, but the mechanics tend to make up for it.
>>41189424I mean, the trailer for '83 was just a cinematic, I'd withhold judgement till we see actual gameplay. Besides, Antimatter's bread and butter is realistic shooters that bridge the gap between something like ARMA and Battlefield. I don't think this will be any different.
>>41189428They've upgraded to UE4, right? That engine can look great. I'm willing to bet we're just seeing a whole lot of WIP assets.
>>41188700>am i looking forward to a game Made by the devs of Red Orchestra and Rising Stormabsolutely fucking not.
>>41189441RS2 was considerably more casual than RS1 or RO2, and this is a completely new IP and so far they haven't been advertising this as a "realistic" shooter in any regard. I don't know if '83 plans on being just like RS2 right now, but I wouldn't bet on it.I mean Eugen went from making Wargame RD to Act of Aggression so it's possible
>>41189482Well, even if it is more "casual", its nice to see a shooter that isn't set in WW2 or current day tacticool speshul forces.The persistent battlefield thing sounds neat too, that is if they have the resources and player pool to actually have it mean anything.
>>41189445Correct, they're running UE4 now>>41189450That's just like, your opinion man>>41189482I guess that's a fair criticism, but I don't know how much of that "casual" feeling was brought on by the adaptation of a setting with a lot of automatic weapons versus intentional design decisions>>41189502I suspect the persistent mode won't be too different from their campaign mode in past games. Who knows?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aPM4XZUbO4I still feel the bitter sting of disappointment around MGSV.
>>41189518Who are those guys? Some sort of local SWAT team?
>>41189538I dont really know... BUT.From their uniforms, patches, and badge shape I'd say local sheriff department from west of the Mississippi
>>41188486is that a piece of small tree and road cone as camouflage?
>>41187884THERE SHE WAS JUST A WALKIN' DOWN THE STREET
>>41189502Yeah, literally FUCK wwii, just let it die for fuck sake. or rest. And special forces would be AWESOME if it wasn't always so over the top.That said, I could do with some modern day regular army games or some 70's/80's action that isn't a fucking interactive Michael Bay movie.
>>41188519Their equipment looks brand spankin' new.
>>41187853>the 80sYou mean the early 2000's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLR0xBAWd_o

>>41189450Based.>2019>I'm still playing Arma 2
>>41190439That is just called being schizophrenic
>>41187884>>41187895>>41187976>>41188119>>41188506They all use (((crye))) multicam now :(
>>41190475It's the ultimate pleb filter. The second best Arma game next to Operation Flashpoint.
>>41189556It's adaptive camouflage
>>41190488Are there still servers running for flashpoint? I replayed the campaign the other day, and it just made me want more.
>>41189330Doesn't help that they have been known to promise features in the youtube comments just to go back and delete it later.
>>41188519MMMMMMMph Ranger Vests
>>41190430no, you're straight
>>41190430did you say no homo?
>>41187853Because ww2 had only ended 35 years ago, old schoolers still had taste. The us was also using hybrid modern/ww2german stuff.
>>41187853They weren't, you just have shit taste.
>>41190866Are you implying that we have better aesthetics today?
>>41187853It was the first full-decade of the beginning of the cyberpunk era.
>>41190866the 80s were the best decade for homoeroticism since the 40s
>>41190816I have always had a soft spot for the MiG-23, it may have been a mediocre aircraft at best and been 10 years too late to the party (By the time it got to the ML versions at least) just to be greeted by 4th gen aircraft, but to me it is one of the last true Cold War interceptors.Modern aircraft may be better in every way but they don't share the same combination of brutal simplicity in some areas with complicated features in others as 60s and 70s jets.
>>41190243early 2000s lacks the soul of the 80s
>>41189422why do gas masks instantly make everything look rad as fuck
The 80s was all about showing off to the Soviets and when the Cold War ended we stop giving a fuck
>>41192979The 80's was about recovering from the 70's, broski.
80’s were shit compared to today. Stop jerking off to outmoded equipment it’s pathetic like buying milsurp over an AR.
>>41190486On ops abroad, yeah. They wear what's appropriate for the job.
>>41187853>Tfw you'll never be a member of a spic right-wing death squad in order to protect your catholic qt3.14 wife from leftists guerrillas in El Salvador.
>>41190696air superiority grey was the biggest mistake the chairforce made
>>41190704how the hell is he holding that
>>41190486At least its not UCP.
all the people in my arma 3 unit poke fun at me because whenever i host OPs they are all 1980s themed but i can't help it, the 80s were the height of human civilization. I wanna go back
>>41194621Dad grew up as a white kid in El Salvador during that conflict. Was spooky as hell apparently
