    Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

    BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    Will it have sparkly zombies?

  • SilvermachinSilvermachin BerlinPosts: 13Member Uncommon

    Most important thing to me is...what kind of zombies are implemented? I want the sloooow ones, like in dawn of the dead, (classic version, not remake). And i want thousands of them. If they plan to give me 5 bullets and 10 zombies running for me like olympic sprinters, forget it!

     

    I dont want another game like left 4 dead, which i call *Land of the rocket zombies*. I want hack and slay, not hit and run...

    Ah, you did see it is coming out in the fall.  Pretty much tells you to stick with Dayz as you can't generate a decent MMO in that short a time.   This announcement has fail written all over it.

    250 persons in the world. Real mmo

    there already are games giving this experience!

    Day Z, Dead Frontier, etc...and they dont need me to pay a monthly sub. Without a sub, how do you expect to keep a free to play game going? Its diffifcult.

    This will mark the third 'zombie mmo' to try and launch...the last one lost funding. I doubt this one will fare any better. Id like to see it do well though.

    Someone should tell him to get this up on Kickstarter...

    Finally some sane people who see the limitaiton of Day Z for what it is; that stupid assed engine.

    Someone needs to steal it, burn it, resurrect it, then burn it again, though this time with magnesium powder, and replace it with something like Frostbite2 or similar.

    Day Z could turn into a really great game, but it's far far too limiting right now for me to drop coing on buying Arma2 and DLC.

    Let players build villages, or board up windows, or grow crops. Turn off 100% pvp in all areas (sorry, I have no interest in hiking 150km to an airfield only to be sniped by some unseen, unwashed, basement dwelling 30yr old manchild living at his Mom's house; *twitch* but I'm not bitter). These are some of the things I hope for with Day Z or for another company/dev team to make.

    Have to say, Day Z needs funding. Although..I heard rumors that the Arma team were going to integrate day Z directly into the next arma :/

    The Problem I have wtih it is that they have said there is "Safe Zones" and "Store Houses" , This means most people are going to pull an EVE and leave all their awesome weapons in a Store House and just run out into the world with a Pistol, and I can see some form of trolling were your getting chased by an enemy Player with an M4 who you have pissed off, he deserves the kill, hes got better weapons, and you haven't played your cards right, so you pay the blood price. Instead all you have to do is run into a safe zone and its all forgotten, thats not in the apocalypse spirit

    He said its time...

    This is right up my alley!  I'll be following this one closely.  Zombie survival may be popular now, but I've been a zombie lover since the original Dawn of the Dead, and been dying for a game like this since I started playing MMO's.

    Well the idea of this kind of mmo is the feeling of beeing alone, and youre one of the last surviviors. If u play on a server with 10.000 others it feels more like woodstock...

    The reason I scream DayZ clone is simple. This game and the other one on kickstarter just show us some basic artwork or a web page, they list some features that mostly already exist in DayZ or are something we would all like to see in DayZ along with some extra generic MMO features. 

    The difference is right now I can play DayZ, there is no current gameplay for any of these other games, they are years away from being completed unless they are being totally half assed, in which case they will probably be terrible games.

    You're screaming clone when the "game" your referring to is a MOD... Sorry, I have an issue with that.

     

    The developer(s) of DayZ are piggybcking off of another company, essentially legally stealing another game to make it their own and you have the nerve to say the difference is "I can play DayZ, there is no current gameplay for any of these other games." Well no shit, any normal game takes years to develope to be in alpha stage, DayZ did it in months because everything was already made for them!

     

    WarZ was in development before DayZ and that's really all that matters. I'm going to play both, and frankly don't care who copys who, as long as it makes for a great game.

    Comparing the two games or saying one is a ripoff because of a letter is reaching, even for MMORPG forum-goers.  Just cut out the nonsense.  Most zombie games share stark similarities in the first place.

    Anyway, I might buy it because I'm big on zombie games, and if it's anything like an MMO version of Left 4 Dead 2, I'm there.
