Drew and Vinny should give DayZ a other go

#1 Posted by HoM3R (208 posts) -

With the dry spell with games, premium content and lack of Vinny I think its time.

Its still in alpha but it has loads of good servers and is very stable, if they can get a multi pc stream up I think it will make for great content.

My body is ready and DayZ is ready

I've been watching some DayZ videos on youtube and it really looks like a fun, engrossing experience.

Yeah not a bad idea actually, I wouldn't mind them doing a little mini series to hold us over until something good actually comes out.

I'd rather they wait till it's fully released before they do something like that. It's nowhere near as frustrating to get in a game as it was when they played, but it's still not perfect. I'd love a series, but it'd be best to wait till a lot less things could go wrong with it.

Any content would be welcome, to be honest. What happened to all the extra E3 stuff that Vinny & Drew were apparently working on?

I know there's a lack of games to make content about, but at the end of the day, a lot of us are still paying money for a subscription that quite honestly hasn't paid it's dues as of late.

How about a Load our Last Save? Or another Random PC Game? A mini series on DayZ certainly sounds like a decent idea.

I don't normally like to bitch about this sort of stuff, but it'd be nice to see where my money is going.

Their prior experience with the game was miserable. And Vinny is well-known to have zero interest in online (competitive) multiplayer.

Hasn't been that long id rather wait for the game to be in beta or finally be finished before they try it again.

The game is excellent so i'd rather them show it off when they can represent the game in a better light, since they would probably still end up showing 30 mins of server browsing again at this stage. But i'm totally up for it down the line.

If they do it again I hope they don't do it live. Too many griefers out there will hunt them no matter how many "bodyguards" they might get.

Well rule number one is dont show the server when streaming and block the chat with a image so griefers wont find you.

That was a big problem with their first stream, apart from the server issues.

It should just be 2-4 GB guys taking on the world. If you play this as a TNT with more then 5 players grouped this hole game loses its appeal.

Because its "(competitive)" and not "competitive" makes this game. I think that atleast Drew and alot of people playing get this and love it because of that.

Totally agree, especially if server issues have been fixed.

But at this point I'm desperate for any quirky PC action from Dave/Drew/Vin Dog.

im not sure how that would work since all the servers are approved by rocket. someone would have to offer up their server to use, and if they were to invite the gb community instead of just the gb staffers, things could get very messy very quickly unless the server player cap was set real low. but it would be awesome if they could set it up

due to the server issues at that time, yes. and this isn't similar to any online multiplayer at all so that's also no excuse.

@HoM3R: Cant agree more they should give a shot it was fun.

I am in full support of this.

@notha: Why when i look at the server browser for Dayz some games are password protected then?

Because some admins like to abuse the system/exploit.
