Not interested in hours of crawling through the grass in fear punctuated by one-shot kills. Besides, the graphics suck.

The only reason why the graphics suck is that the game is more wide open then most shooters and already uses a good amount of your gpu to display it.

It's just a mod and not the actual game.

Standalone coming in December. Think I'll just wait.

Wow! I have no idea what rock I've been under, but this mod looks AMAZING! I'm kicking myself now for not giving Arma 2 a look when it was part of the Steam Summer Sale for like $15. After reading your install guide and promptly checking out Youtube for some gameplay videos, I am DEFINITELY going to be checking DayZ out this weekend! I think you may have just identified my next addiction!

Yeah, I'm going to download SteamDayZCommander from an unknown source and run it as admin to play a game that features twenty to thirty minutes of running around in virtual isolation followed by almost instant death and a game-over screen.

This is one of those games, like Minecraft, that just aren't fun for normal adults.

Seems to me you just lack skill and creativity. Also, "normal adults"? That's just a cop out. Why not just say you're not interested and leave it at that?

I can vouch for DayZ Commander. They ask so little and offer you so much :)

Actually the cheapest route if that's what your looking for is to do the Arma 2 Free + Operation Arrowhead = Cheaper and you can google search it to find it.

That's if you're just instrested in the mod DayZ

I have added a note above since you are technically correct, but since the mod creators don't recommend it, I would advise going the combined ops route.

Yea notice they don't give a reason on why it's not recommended. I really comes down to the main game I believe and not just a mod. I'm sure they don't want people to use a free version of one of the games needed.

Yea, I have been waiting to get into the Day-Z mod because it seemed a mess to get going. All my friends at work are into it so I think I will do it now.

I haven't played this yet, but have referred this article to a few friends who have experienced difficulty getting DayZ set up correctly. Very informative and detailed, and addressed Steam AND Retail.
Thanks!
