Dayz- Arma 2 mod

Post by Dr Lecter » Wed May 16, 2012 3:05 pm

This shit looks so cool, imagine playing a game of the walking dead.

It is a persistent zombie survival game, where it is free for all pvp (you don't know who is friend or foe), and a humongous world to scavenge for food and supplies.

I've watched two videos on it and read about it, I'm buying arma now.

The first video is an over view, and the 2nd one is pretty exciting because he encounters friendly players as well as hostile.

Interesting, and just FYI you can try out Arma 2 Free to get a feel of the engine before purchasing, it doesn't support mods but is free.

I used to play the shit out of the original operation flash point so I'm not worried about the game, I've been meaning to get around and get this game for a minute.

Yeah, I did too, some great times were had when I wasn't playing serious and my friends were, like running away in a jeep and coming back with an APC after briefly being chased by a tank.

Wooooooah.

This shit looks awesome. Don't have Arma, but when I get my computer, definitely going to play this.

Yeah still buggy, somehow I lost my backpack but I picked up a shotgun and some ammo food off a dead body on one of the coastal roads, they had 3 flares around them in the dead of night so I waited for them to go out before picking up the equipment. Also picked up a watch and compass off that body, and i would have gone to another body not far away but it had a swarm of zombies on it, and the shotgun had 2 shots. So I headed into the woods instead of the nearby town, Dead of night wandering around the woods listening to the noises and pushing on, until I found a keep of some sort with a zombie outside, it noticed me and I had to shoot, I then proceeded to stumble off the keep and break a leg, my journey may end here IDK.

Fun and unforgiving.

Yeah so first play through I ended up bleeding out when I tried to move, and I didn't have any more bandages. 2nd time I played I ended up passing out due to bloodloss near zombies, 3rd time I ended up dying from zombies directly because I ran out of ammo, 4th basically the same as the 3rd.

Bumping as I am thinking of getting Arma and when I do I'll be getting DayZ too. Anyone got / getting it and feel like playing sometime?

I play ARMA 2 regularly. DayZ is pretty cool, just tried it out yesterday.

First, I love DayZ I have always thought of getting Arma 2 then downloading DayZ. I see people playing it on Steam a lot, so if you weren't playing it on steam would you be able to play it with a person who IS playing it on steam?

Second, I think Joe.to should get a DayZ. And that we would be able to meet up on a server we all know. I'd bet that minecraft raiders would be bandits. I think it'd be good for this place to have a DayZ server.

Third, I was watching a stream three days ago and something happened that I could see a LOT of people on here going out the same way.

We run linux and that won't change so no we aren't going to run a DayZ server.
