If you wanna really see the game, I reccomend you just watch some of the DayZ. Here's a good one:

Didn't realize you needed Operation: Arrowhead. I only have ArmA2.

I can't wait but every server is full, they fill up real fast too. I saw one jump to 50/50 in seconds. Plus some need passwords to get in. If they made this easier to join I'd be a lot happier. Hopefully it will cool down during the week.

So just to clear it up, you can only play this with arrowhead? Is that a stand alone or do you need that plus the normal ArmA2 game.

This is a free mod for Arma 2 (must also have Operation Arrowhead expansion) that probably captures the horror the zombie apocalypse in a game yet.

You start off in a random location within a Russian island. You have a pistol, some clips and some beans. From there, it's up to you. You'll search for supplies, making sure to keep yourself hydrated and fed. You'll need to move quietly, noise attracts zombies. You'll see another player in the distance looking at you.

This man might just be happy to see another human, knowing that power is in numbers....or he might just simply want to kill you for your can of beans.

And this is what is making this mod extremely popular right now, the social working between strangers and friends in a post apocalyptic environment. It's not really the zombies that you should fear, you know their motives (nomnom). It's the people you should fear. You don't know what they want and what they'll do to get it.

Oh and if you die, you are dead. You lose all the items you've collected from the start. And when you start again, you start in a random place, with a pistol, and a can of beans.

Just reading comments by players, many of them love telling stories of events that transpired during their 'life.'

Oh, and the average lifespan is under five hours at the moment.

As a result of this mod (likely), Arma2: CO has shot up to #5 on Steam. No doubt fueled by people who want to play this mod.


Yes, you need Operation Arrowhead.

So have to own original and expansion. BLEAH! Funny how games become popular if an awesome mod comes out. This is something developers should always look at and keep in mind.

At least the two games are in a nice pack. I'll be buying ARMA 2 whenever my bank realises my card isn't stolen. I let my girlfriend use it sometimes and everytime I get the "YOUR CARD IS FUCKING STOLEN MAN HOLY SHITSNAPS!!!111" phone call from my bank. No, it's not, we've been over this about 500 times...

DS made the good point that if ARMA 2 goes on sale, servers will be flooded by annoying people. We should enjoy it before then. Before all the MLG Call of Duty pro snipers 360 noscope players discover it.

or they release some sort of training video teaching us how to play video games and calling us all this Halo "Noob" stuff. I don't remember using the world Noob until I got xbox Live.

Like when I purchased R6 Vegas 2 and the entire box had Frag Dolls logos on it. I wanted to return it to the store for a refund.

diablo 3 releasing in ~15 hours, so I missed my opportunity to play this mod. Will be playing nothing but D3 for a long time.

I meant debit card, I'd never get a credit card and made sure neither does she; and yeah she has one, but it's got no money on it and barely ever does. I don't mind letting her use it for the odd thing. I'm good at managing money so it's s'all good.

And if I say yes, she owes me one. So next time we're both there, we're sat in bed and she wants to watch some subbed Naruto... fuck that shiz, we're watching House!
