  1. helo there friend, i like this mode you made here, me and my friend battlestad is making our mech, we would be honored to have your advice and tips on our development, just add me "ZeroErrorz" and "Battlestad" in steam so we can chat 😀

  2. Love this theme.

    Arma is so slow paced and this music and quick action anime style is a bowl of fresh air ; D

  3. I'm going to buy Arma 3 Apex Edition tomorrow on Steam for $24. One of the reasons I got serious interest in buying Arma 3 is seeing this mod. Since i learned of this mod from a while back, I bought Gungriffon Blaze on PS2, and man that game is awesome!. (It's my second copy. I sold it the first time I played it when I was a kid. GGB was too difficult for 12yo me).

    Great video!
