The Life And Trials Of Dayz Standalone

The Life And Trials Of Dayz Standalone

To understand the present, we must understand the past. Can you remember the first time you played DayZ? It may have been the vanilla version of the original Arma 2 mod, or maybe Origins, Epoch, Overwatch or a whole bunch of others. It might even have been DayZ Standalone. Some of you may even have been a first-timer in all of them. But can you remember the very first time you ever set foot in the DayZ universe? I can. It was the original version of the mod, based on Arma 2 with the Operation Arrowhead expansion, back in the summer or autumn of 2012. I first [...]

Most Anticipated Games of 2015

Most Anticipated Games of 2015

From the dying embers of lackluster 2014 we look ahead to 2015 with hope, hope that finally shit is going to get real, hope that Ubisoft is going to deliver on it’s promises, hope that these f@cking rigs we built with our bare hands are going to get punished by some motherfunking bitching gaming awsomenessness. And what gives us this hope? these mofo’s right here……..   Tom Clancy’s The Division (Ubisoft) Imagine a persistent, online, open-world New York where exploration, combat, and RPG player-progression are essential (so, not unlike real life then? – Travel Ed.). The Division is inspired by Operation Dark [...]

Preview: Dead State

Preview: Dead State

The highly anticipated zombie TBS/RPG hybrid Dead State from DoubleBear Productions is slated for released tomorrow, Thursday December 4th 2014.  This gamer is definitely stoked about this release, and I’ve already enjoyed many hours with the demo and the beta. Ok, so you figure, “What? Another zombie game?” Yeah, well I thought that too, but Dead State really sucks you in. Pretty soon you’re more worried about a mutiny and the psychological state of your group of survivors than you are about the zombies. The structure and balance of the game (from what I’ve played in the beta) are spot on. The [...]

Interview with the devs: Zpocalypse Survival

Interview with the devs: Zpocalypse Survival

Zpocalypse: Mixing combat, gathering, advancement and team strategy in a roguelite, RTS survival game set in a randomized post-apocalyptic world. The original Zpocalypse board game was borne of a frustration by Jeff Garcia at the lack of zombie board games that were, to him, interesting and engrossing. After building a team and launching a successful Kickstarter for the board game and all of its assets last year, planning for the Zpocalypse video game began. It has already been Greenlit by the Steam community, and just needs financial help to push it into a final product. With a goal of $35,000, Greenbrier is offering tier rewards from [...]

Isotope, Wat R U Doin? STAHP.

Isotope, Wat R U Doin? STAHP.

This is why you shouldn’t play chicken with an A4AI. This is a moral conundrum of sorts dear viewers.  The accused, PsychoSyd, is on trial for murder in the first degree.  You however have it in your power to be jury, and judge, and clear his name.  What do you think? Should PsychoSyd atone for his sins, or was Isotope Toast given fair warning, and was PsychoSyd only acting in self defense? This particular incident took place on the lovely island of Lingor.  Don’t know about Lingor Island, and want to learn more? Well check this out.  You too can [...]

Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse

Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse

Alright, so it’s not very often that the government (any of them) do some pretty awesome things. This is an exception! The FEMA and CDC have released a blog post listing down what to do in case of a Zombie Apocalypse. Yup, you read that correctly. Some claim it’s a waste of taxpayers’ money, I say it’s a proof that these people are human with a sense of humour. Let’s be honest, who actually reads regular disaster emergency action plans? This one though, is nice and funny and actually worth reading. Learning should be fun, and people will remember things [...]
