    Day Z - Arma II + zombie mod = awesomeness

    http://www.dayzmod.com/

    The setup: Your typical zombie survival scenario EXCEPT for the fact that the focus is not on actually killing zombies. Much like The Walking Dead comics, this mod is primarily about human interaction/emotion.

    When you start off you have a pistol with a couple mags, some water and a can of beans. You have no map/compass and have no idea where you are. Naturally, food, weapons and other useful items are scarce, so scavenging/hunting/trading is the only way to survive.

    The stakes: You can only play one character at a time and death for each character you play is permanent. If you've survived for weeks out in the wilderness (all of your character's items/info are saved to a master server), only to be shot in the head by a marauding bandit player, that character is gone forever. When you respawn, you will start a new character.

    Player interaction: Most of your time in DayZ will be spent building relationships and deciding who to trust. Some people want to live in a friendly community, some will do whatever it takes to survive (even if that means killing you for a can of beans because they were on the verge of starvation) and some just want to watch the world burn. I've seen small groups of friendly survivors get robbed by masked bandits and used as zombie bait/distraction. I've seen people get murdered for a can of Coke. I've seen people trust others, only to be shot in the back and stripped bare as they lay bleeding on the ground. This is the reality that DayZ presents.
    some vids i found of various adventures. looks like it would be a good fucking time if we could get a group together. anyone down??

    doesn't seem like the type of thing you would be into grav... but it does sound surprisingly interesting. have you played any of it?

    i can just picture a wilderness full of douchebags and the occasional roaming zombie lol

    I think Arma II is only like $20 on Steam right now... which is all you need to play. The DayZ files go in the addon folder etc..

    im down to try and get a game going tonight.

    i'll be at work till around 930 so it'll have to be after that.

    either way we def need to get a mumble/skype chat going as it will make things easier.

    you gotta download the ARMA II - Combined Operations. It's $29 on steam right now. so unless you plan on playing the zombie mod for a while or wanna try arma II i would wait for a weekend sale or something, or find it somewhere else cheaper.

    ehh i think i'll pass... for now at least. dropping $30 on a game just to use a free mod seems wasteful to me. i know i can play the main game--but i wont lol

    I know the game runs fine, as I've tried the demo out.

    Shame I can't pirate it, as reading it's full of games has me a bit hesitant now.
