Good luck Patrick! You did and will continue to do great work.

ARMA 3 in less than three hours! It looks like we'll be exploring the island of Altis in an insurgency campaign (check out a video of it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7IAasO925U ). My framerate was pretty rough, but I imagine that a good part of that was because I was testing locally and doing the hosting myself.

This Saturday, August 31 at 4 PM EST, it'll be time to celebrate this week's ARMA 3 development build update with a little co-op gaming event! Make sure to prepare your PC by downloading and installing the development build by doing the following:

1. Right-click "Arma 3 Beta" in your Steam Library and select "Properties.

2. Click the "Betas" tab. Under the "Select the beta..." dropdown, select "development - Development Build".

3. Ignore the "Enter beta access code..." field and click the "Close" button. The development build of the game should start downloading after a few moments.

And that's not all - it's highly recommended that you find yourself a mic and join a dozen of us in voice chat on our Mumble server at mumble.giantbombing.com port 64738. The Mumble software is freeware and available for download at http://download.cnet.com/Mumble/3000-2150_4-10779248.html . People are actually on that server practically 24/7 in case you just want to hang out, too.

Note: I'll post an update as soon as server hosting details are available, so stay tuned for that.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I truly enjoyed hearing and watching Ryan do the things he did here and at GameSpot before. I will miss him.

Hey guys - we're starting up a pretty big game of VIP in 5 minutes. I'll post again with the server name, but hop into the Mumble server as well: mumble.giantbombing.com port 64738

just need to voice this but was anyone else expecting kai leng to be a Cerberus resurrected kaidan alenko who's mind had been twisted into bitterness at his sacrifice with the intention of stopping shepard. I was certain that was the purpose for the mask/visor

Instead we got this random guy who had very little backstory or filling out. What's he been doing up till now? why wasn't he on your squad in 2 as he's obviously so leet and at the illusive man's disposal.

Would have been a great to kill kaidan again but not before he had a darth vader style redemption providing perhaps some useful information to defeat the illusive man.

That is a terrific idea. A real shame it didn't happen!

I have nothing against her or her performance, but she "wore" a low-cut top in the game, the camera focused on her ass a couple of times as she walked in/out of shots, and you can have sex with her in the game. How surprised can she be about how her role would be seen by gamers?

Pretty sure Bioware confirmed that to be fake.

Is there a source that it was confirmed fake? Not saying you're wrong. I just want to see for myself.

http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/355/index/10399933&lf=8

That's an odd rebuttal. What is fake - the entire user account? Multiple people say otherwise. Is BioWare claiming the account was hacked? Or that the screenshots were faked? I'm perfectly willing to accept their statement but the vagueness of the statement is eyebrow raising.

@sully: 1) This has been posted before on the Giant Bomb forums, please use the search button in future. 2) BioWare and the writer in question has already said it was fake last week, Wednesday I think it was, may have have Thursday.

I figured it would have been posted, but I searched for "Takyris" and "Patrick Weekes" and got back no results. I'm not sure what else I could have searched for that would have brought up links to this but not every other post talking about the ending.

Re: being fake, that's actually a bit of a relief.
