Check out this awesome game out.

Basically it's a realistic zombie game, you're stuck on a HUGE island and you fight for survival. where if you die...you are dead, no restarting..

Some cool stories of people playing the game on the forums.

"I was hurt...badly hurt ...I had lost so much blood it must have left a path 5 miles long. I managed to make it to the northern hospital of Cherno and asked on my walkie talkie if anybody in the city could help me with a blood transfusion. I got a response of some survivors trying to make their way to me. I shot open the front windows of the hospital to get inside and heard the maddening yells of a dozen or so geeks.

I could barely see my vision was so blurry and grey but I wasn't going down without a fight. I squeezed off as many rounds from my .45 revolver into those blood thirsty monsters as I could manage. I dropped about 15 before I passed out from blood loss. I woke up to see more of those hungry eyes gazing at me through the glass and I fed them the rest of my lead. I saw another survivor through my hazy vision run into the apartments across from the hospital and grabbed my blood bags and made a dash for him. Little did he know the apartment was infested and when I got closer I could see they were feasting on his still warm corpse. I shot those three and three more coming down the stairs. This must have alerted more because I could hear the screams of them in the distance. The poor sod had a Remington 870 shotgun with two 8 rounds packages of slugs that I decided to make use of not to mention the 4 juicy steaks he had in his backpack. In between blasting zeds with the shotgun I was scarfing down steaks. My vision slowly blurred a little less and I had regained some energy.

I asked again over the walkie if anyone was coming and they said they were in the center of town. Just then I heard automatic weapons fire and explosions going off. The walkie talkie went dead and I decided it was time to head north out of town. Luckily on my way into the hills I spotted two cows grazing in a field and stumbled up to them and shot them both, gutted them and took more meat than I could carry. I cooked it all up, feasted and rested and thanked that poor bastard in the apartments for the second lease on life. R.I.P. Shotgun man on Australian 2 server. You saved me and I owe you one. "

Oh yea it's great. There is a thread on this but will need to get bumped. I haven't played for a couple months so I'm sure it's a lot better now. Great game recommend it also. Arma3 looks insane I hope my comp can handle it. Phone Post

The OG has a sever with a bunch of people that have NVG's, thermal scopes, etc. I haven't been on that one yet.

KVR and I have been playing together. We just made a small camp, and have a few supplies.

What is your in game name?

 Cool.

We have a few spare weapons, and our camp is very far south. We could hook you up so that you are loaded out from the start.

Be prepared to die. A lot. This game is fun and addicting, but very difficult as well. You may have 3 straight days of building a character only to have them get murdered by a bandit, or have a zombie break your leg and bleed out.

The only way to last more than a day is with other players.

 Billy Ray,

I posted a link on the other thread where you asked the same question, lol.

First step is to make sure your PC can run it. Go to: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/

After you find that out, buy Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead combined ops through Steam (about $30).

Then make sure that you have the latest Beta patch for Arma 2.
Then launch Arma 2, and OA and let the whole game load.

Now, download the DayZ game Updater from here: http://dayzmod.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=2434

Let us know how that works out. If you have any problems PM me.

yeah, so we are running into a residential building, I get stuck behind the door, a z comes up behind me and breaks my leg, I slowly start crawling into the house as ahren is shooting over me splatting brains, he calls out  whats wrong?

My leg is broken and I don't have morphine, don't worry he says I have one, just then he gets rushed by two z's and breaks his leg, we end up shooting the rest and we are both laying there with broken legs with one morphine between us, so ahren heals his leg and starts scouting the surrounding area for morphine, we were in Vybor and I spent the next 2 days crawling to the barracks in the nortwest airfield, before getting stuck in the wilderness bug when I had to respawn becuase there was no way I was going to crawl out of the wilderness.

I now carry 5 morphine everywhere

Game sounds awesome! Does your character save on the server and carry over between sessions until you die? Are there multiple servers and how are the pops? Any queue time or can you get right in? Phone Post
