    Rust IS in depth. I would say the crafting is more than a little extra added. It's a different type of game, more about survival from the ground up whereas DayZ is more of a scavenge and survive from human predators game.

    Minecraft is in a different genre completely. 7 Days to Die is alright but can't keep my attention that long. The whole block style gets to me and I haven't played with the most recent updates but as I know they've just made it harder basically...which I don't mind but it just isn't for me over the other two above.

    Have they implemented non perma death servers for those that want to enjoy this type of game but have hectic life schedules?

    No. That would take away from the whole point of the game. Just log out when you can't play and you don't die.

    I would love to see such game though. Maybe with skills as well. Not necessarily levels though.
    Hell, it would be a little like Fallout MMORPG then. I'd pay a LOT for such game.

    Bodies no longer despawn. YESSSSSSSS.

    This made it impossible to get loot after I killed people.

    Yey finally its fixed, the bug with the bodies disappearing bothered me a lot. you get in a firefight, waste lots of ammo, get hit in the process, kill the guy, see his gear full of ammo and it disappears. it was pretty annoying, glad it's fixed. I can do proper banditry now

    Still waiting for the combat log timer and vehicles though

    Finally played with a buddy of mine, we were running towards eachother for about 10 minutes (how the fuck are their no vehicles) when we suddenly both rubberbanded back to where we were 10 minutes prior. Safe to say we both rage quit.


    Outside of some average player and building textures... This really isn't much better than the mod. With the exception being that the mod worked correctly. I stick by my accusation that the lead dev in this is a spoiled overhyped twat.

    Just picked this game up last night and saw some of the most obscene behavior I have ever witnessed out of members of TPU. Other than that the game was fun. Wish I would have heard about it before.

    Do you get your money back if the game fails to get a full release?

    Lol, yeah right, if X-Rebirth and other horrible games didn't give refunds, this won't.

    I don't see it not getting a full release. It's not like it's just Dean Hall and his friends making the game. Bohemia Interactive does have a reputation to uphold after all.

    Plus there was some promising news recently that they are putting a new renderer in the engine, making it 64 bit and DX11.

    Bohemia Interactive put their name in the opening title. This game will come out or class actions will fly.

    Well maybe they will have a little more time for it now with A3's ZEUS released although there working on a load of shit for A3 still.. But don't care for the game my self to may dicks play it how ever i would of thought BI would release it without question.

    I wish they hurry though sick of hearing people bitch about it lol.. IMO it will never be done, it be released but there be always problems with it as that's how it's been since OFP.

    Malwarebytes just blocked me from connecting to a server in DayZ. Said it was a known Malware IP. So for all you people telling me I was crazy.......there you go.

    I'm just saying the way DayZ is setup now people started adding malice payloads to some servers. When you connect you are not only downloading stats and such, you might be downloading an exploit. This is what I have said in the past and yesterday after a lot of mockery I was proven correct. Like I said I can provide the IP and port number. I've already sent an email to Valve.
