Read about his on CAD. Evidently there is a "real death" where you get reset to nothing upon dying, which means the survival aspect is that much more important. I would totally check this out if I had a decent PC.

You have to buy Arma 2 and the Operation Arrow Head expansion pack to play Dayz currently $23.99 on steam the last time I checked. I have been playing Dayz for a good 2 months now and its a great mod.

I hear Arma 2 is kinda mediocre, but this mod (made by only one person) makes it worth buying. I hope to play something similar someday, and who knows, maybe this will trigger a big company to poor some cash into making a similar one even more badass. As is it looks like the zombies are ridiculously fast runners. Why slower zombies? "Because death is not an energy drink" - Simon Pegg.

Arma 3 has already stated they will be making a Dayz game mode in the next release. They personally thanked the Dayz creator for all the revenue they have been getting and hope to make it a huge part of the next Arma installment.

Personally thanked, I imagine I'd want to be personally thanked with a job or cash for boosting their sales and making a game mode they'll be implementing in their next version.

I was reading up on this a bit and it seems like a really fun game to play. I should probably get this sometime, or wait for arma3 Dayz.

arma 2 released in 2009, and the expansion in 2010 (i think). So that has been out for awhile, unless you were referring to Dayz... which released in the beginning of 2012. I've been watching more videos on this, and they make me want to buy the game even more. The whole open-worldness, hearing shots from other players in the distance, spotting other players and deciding whether to risk letting them live in the hope they won't kill you or straight out killing them for their loot. Food, water, infection, etc. It's all very interesting.

Just an FYI, they're releasing DayZ as a standalone game in September.

This game is actually quite freaky especially when you choose to join a server that's using the times 11pm-2am. It practically pitch black. I could barely make out the trees that were right in front of me and the only thing I could see was a fire off in the distance. I didn't stick around long because I just started out and you start with no inventory pretty much, so I joined a server where there was daylight. It's a bit crazy because zombies will hear you [normal] crouch walking from a good distance, so you basically have to slow crouch walk (which doesn't give off any noise for zombies to hear) near settlements until you can find some guns and ammo to defend yourself. I haven't been able to play it too much yet because my internet completely stopped working at home this weekend, and it's (hopefully) going to be fixed sometime today.

Awesome. Looks like I'll have to pick that up...

Although Halo 4 will launch, and that might be the end of any other games for me.
