    That about sums it up.. They give us a cartoon to show us "unreal" power? Have they not seen games lately? That hardly looks groundbreaking..

    Not sure how a game that's been in development for enough time to come up with that concept, could be copying any recent mod..
    If it's the mod your referring to, imo it's hardly worth comparing to anything, in it's current state. As I said before, Dayz is still just a shell of a game, that runs badly, has a lot of issues and is not even close to finished.. It's Alpha..

    But there have been zombie games for as long as there have been zombies almost..
    No ones copying anyone as far as I can tell. Just going with the flow like usual and trying to make a buck.
    TMC's "The walking dead" if anything, has lead to the huge surge in zombie fans and games imo.

    This sandbox coop zombie survival sounds abit like a certain mod that has gained abit of fame over these past few months. Why do I get the feeling this is milking that idea?

    I don't have it my heart to ever forgive Epic for UT3, but I could certainly move on with a fun, quality game that is for PC.

    I was a zombie fan before zombies were cool. George A. Romero and Tom Savini were G-D's in the genre. Now its just a bunch of hipster half ass shows and movies with lame plots and no REAL gore. Where are the "CHOKE ON IT" scenes?!

    Kind of looks like L4D meets TF2 meets Minecraft almost. Interesting, but the technology can't possibly be showed of best with this game.

    I was actually incredibly excited about this idea when it was first announced. To be perfectly frank, I couldn't care less about Epic or Unreal 4 technology or CliffyB, I want me a good survival game where you get to build your defenses and survive. Minecraft started good on that theme but quite frankly there isn't enough danger during the night, your enemies mostly mill about and ignore you. I want a build-your-own-fort game where the enemies are swarming toward you. I love co-op games I can enjoy with my wife, and this is looking like it should fit the bill.

    First, yes F3 was crap, but New Vegas was amazing. Second, you can count the number of good non-sandbox games in the last decade with a truly excellent story on two hands, and almost none of them have been released recently. Since most new games come with crap stories anyway, which would you prefer? A crap game that shoehorns you into its crap storyline full of crap, or a semi-crap storyline that lets you roam mostly free and do something that is more fun and freeing, letting you write your own stories? For me personally, I'd rather have Skyrim than about 95% of games released in the past three years. It's not quite Morrowind, but it's better than Oblivion. It only rarely breaks my immersion and it's a fun world to get lost in, which is exactly what I like: getting lost in games and finding my way about.

    I felt the EXACT same way when TF2 was first announced, but I wanted Portal and Ep1 so I bought the Orange Box. Since I had TF2 anyway, I gave it a try. Not a single game released before or since has taken as much of my time as TF2 has. In time I even came to prefer the graphics because it gives it a nice 50's old-timey TV feel. I honestly can't imagine playing TF2 with modern graphics, it would get tiresome and brutal before long instead of fun and amusing.

    Lame way to get exclusive. Bah to more cartoonish 1/2 finished games any chance this is done so they have time for a console version when the engine works on them.

    That's what will have to be looked for in this kind of game, aside from really smooth and nuanced cartoonish graphics. As usual, everyone is looking for flamboyant, violent, and realistic graphics. Epic makes money on licensing their graphics engines to other companies. What matters is showing off the nuances of an engine, that distinguishes it from others. I have the feeling Epic doesn't really care too much about how well their game releases do, to a certain point. They're just advertisements for the engines.
