    Last time I played DayZ it only had the one map. Maybe I should reinstall it and check it out.

    Warz is now $14.99 https://account.thewarz.com/buy/buy.html?ok (Probably only a turkey/black friday thing)

    Arma 2 Combined Operations is $17.99 on steam (may go cheaper if it lands on flash/today sales)

    Just requested a refund, wonder if it will go through. Don't care either way. Game is still terrible after all the updates, and still in alpha when it was promised beta. I still hadn't even gotten my private place or whatever I received in the pre-order/$50 pack. That and the game is apparently riddled with hackers, one which I think I just experienced but not sure.

    Anyways, come on Day Z standalone.

    Called that right off the bat, simply because it sounds like they are doing a lot of work on it. To get that out in just a few months would not be good, rather have them take their time with it and get it done. And just worry about the final product rather than crying about copy cats and such. I'm looking forward to it though, so I hope they do a good job.

    ------------------------------
    Also the day of the wipe the Devs announced a server they were going to setup on and fight off people. Me, Ufgy, and Jarvis joined and tried to get to them. Had a good time, got some kills, but didn't quite make it sadly.

    I jumped on the WarZ site and it is still $15 so I bought it. I don't even know when I'll have time to play but for $15 I couldn't pass it up.

    Yeah they just came out with the new packages, actually cheaper than it was before, so really good deals, and you get some GC as well if you spend $25 or more.

    Is this one of those games where I have to spend money for upgrades to compete?

    You can spend money if you want to buy scopes, food, backpacks and such, can't buy guns though. I haven't spent any money and I'm doing just fine. After the wipe I found an M107 almost right away, that was extremely lucky, but awesome.

    I jumped on last night. Within 15 minutes I wasn't too impressed. As of this moment I do believe DayZ to be the superior game.

    This is in Alpha right? It's not very impressive as it is. I'm sure it gets better if I put some time into it but I'm not sure I want to.

    As much as I hate the game, 15 minutes doesn't give you any kind of real experience.

    That said, no, it doesn't get much better.
    1Kurgan1 says thanks.

    It just moved into Beta. You can't do a whole lot within 15 minutes though, figuring out where some of the better gear is at, the map in general, and getting places will take more than that. I usually don't bother playing unless I have about 2+ hours to spend at a time, also I usually try and play with Ufgy and Allen, having a group is extremely helpful.

    I'm actually giving you a thanks for that one, thats I think by far the most constructive post you have made in here! :toast:

    We stopped playing DayZ a long time ago. Had a ton of fun with it while I played. I'm not sure if killing a hacker and getting the AS50 TWS made the game less fun for me. Or other factors, my character had been alive for I'd say a good month, and within the last 2 months I only died to hackers (scripting enabled, just got old after a bit). Also the fact that I love CQ/Mid-range fights, DayZ is all about having a good scope and picking people off, which I don't mind now and then, but it's not my style.

    I really liked the game, had a lot of fun, will buy the stand alone. I'm not saying we have completely moved over, because it's just what we are playing now and having lots of fun with. I'm sure we will all be buying and playing DayZ standalone as well. But I'm liking the different aspects WarZ has, I'm really eager to see the unique zombies.

    I agree that 15 minutes isn't a fair amount of time to pass judgement but I can say that all games I have enjoyed I have known right from the start if I like the game or not. I mean when I first played DayZ I was instantly digging it.

    WarZ I found myself immediately thinking how poor the visuals look and how the game feels clunky.

    BUT I will give it another chance over the weekend.

    I guess it just turned from Alpha to beta. So yes.

    I don't think WarZ has amazing graphics, but they are far from bad. Sadly they just reduced viewable grass for people with worse comps, so some of the areas aren't as lush. But it was really nice running through a forest with waist/chest high grass every where. If someone had been laying in the grass, I wouldn't have even know. I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder a freidn of mine use to make fun of me for playing DayZ because some of the textures are super low res, so he said that game had bad graphics because of that.

    What feels clunky to you? Overall, I'd say gameplay is fine, they been tweaking animations and they been getting better, I'm pretty happy with them now.

    Yep, but you have to buy to get in, or know someone who bought one of the ditions with some guest passes. The hate here is strong for this game, Allen and I both stopped posting in this thread for a while because of thread crappers, couldn't even talk about a game we enjoyed with the few others here that enjoyed it, because there was so much thread crapping it just wasn't worth it. But if your a member over at OCN, they got a pretty large thread for it and a good amount of people that like it, someone over there might have an extra key. I didn't get any with my version, I know Allen did, but I'm not sure if he has any left.

    Character movement, animations, zombies....

    Sounds are strange at times too...

    I'll give the game a fair shot over the weekend. I wish it were first person too.
