A day Z ripoff with safe zones... kinda missing the point, aren't they?
Jared should do Day Z Let's Play or an in-game diary.
Shamelessly copying something else worked out pretty well for League of Legends so why not?
War Z certainly sounds like it's shamelessly copying Day Z. But I'd still check it out. Maybe you'd be able to get in a big city without getting shot at the moment you enter it. Also, safe zones? HELL YEAH!
Moba and e-sports should not be mentioned in the same sentence.
Well in way both Day Z and The War Z copied off of Dead Frontier. Granted they're both highly updated versions. Taking care of injuries, finding weapons and supplies, trying to make sure your character stays well nourished. Dead Frontier had all of these before Day Z or the War Z where thought of. Also the upgrading abilities that The War Z has yeah other zombie mmos ( whether they're text based or like Dead Frontier) had that before The War Z was even thought of.
Summer Steam Sale? I can't afford the water!
I hope War Z is mac compatible.
Good gosh, so many things are getting kickstarted these days.
kickstarter over abused?
What is Heroes of Newerth?
And here I thought that Jared would go with the whole, "Since it's going free-to-play, all the people who bought the game are going to begin their endless stream of complaining". *cough* Team Fortress 2 *cough*
I have never heard of Day Z, although a multiplayer-focused zombie fps I've heard of countless times before. Also I really need to pick up the original Shadowrun for SNES....
Aww yeah, another SourceFed watcher. Up high!
i think zombie u will be better than the new zombie game
"Stop me when any of this sounds familiar. It's a zombi..." Stop. [=)]
can of beans are awesome! :D
a glimpse of jared before he went insane
