DayZ

PostTue Jul 31, 2012 2:19 pm

Has anyone played this? Seems to be quite a lot of noise around it.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012- ... -ever-made

"The problem isn't the zombies, despite them being the horrible breed of running zombies made popular by 28 Days Later. Zombies also come running at the sound of gunfire, but that's not the problem, either.

The problem isn't the meticulous plausibility of the Arma 2 engine, which is a sluggish theatre of broken legs, iron sights, bullet drop and orienteering. Neither is the problem the engine's famous inability to handle interiors, making exploring a house a bit like steering a forklift through a hedge maze. At night. While drunk.

The problem is the other 49 players on your server. Every one of which could kill you for something as petty as your box of matches."

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

I think God is a sentient tractor called Terry who lives underground.
Terry is amazing.

Consequences.... are just a harmless by-product of having a good time, all the time.

From what I've read it sounds fantastic, genuine tension from open pvp and if you make a loud noise you're zombie food.

It's being copied into an mmo.... already, called War Z. No affiliation. Missed the steam sale on Arma2, so to play Day Z you need the game + expansion and it's 25 quid... I want to play it, but would be better with people we know.

Don't fancy constantly being killed by american kids.

Is anyone still following this? Stable enough to purchase yet?

Streams suggest the zomboids still like to clip through the walls......

I've got the arma version if that still works :S was pissed when they released a new full game to cash in.

Yeah I was referring to the standalone alpha version. Not sure I can cope with buying Arma 2 + expansions required then getting mods yadda yadda.
