A friend in high school had this and loaned it to someone who never gave it back. I searched high and low about the net for this game. Even tried Gamedude and Chip 'N Bits, but no joy. During my 2nd deployment in the Navy, my ship made a port visit to Dubai. I was with some friends at their shopping mall when we came upon a game store. They had many interesting gaming oddities such as 30-in-1 GBA carts. While gazing at the weirdness, I found a shelf of PC games. At the very top, still sealed in the shrink wrap, was Redline. My search literally took me across the globe and now it was over. I got back to the ship opened the box and started to laugh HUBBA HUBBA HUBBA HUBBA. Along with a pristine disc in the case and manual, was a coupon for 10000 degrees for Heat.net. This box had never, ever, been opened. Took a bit of jigery, pokery, but I got the old dog running and there was much nostalgia. YAY!

Gotta agree with OP. I had heard so many fun anecdotes about Day Z and grabbed ARMA II: CO during the sale. So far even getting into a game has been frustrating. Load times are inexcusably long. If a zombie spots you and you have no weapon, game over. You can't get away from them. At the time I wasn't aware that the mod was alpha. If I'd know that I wouldn't have bothered.
While the real time day and night cycle is an interesting idea, it makes the game unplayable.
Anachronox. Modern OSs can't run it. Never did beat it. Saw the ending via the machinima made for it.
I am very excited about this. I used to play Cyberpunk with some people I worked with. Had more fun with that game than any other pen and paper RPG, D&D included. Loved the fact that it didn't matter how badass your character was, a bullet to the head is still a bullet to the head with the exception of being full 'borg. In that case you instead had to deal with not going batshit crazy at the drop of a hat from lack or Humanity(read Essence for Shadowrun players). You might survive if you are well armored and even then it might not matter if it was a Dual Purpose round. So, yes. Very yes. CD Projekt Red, shut up and take my money.
Might be a good opportunity for some scam baiting like fun. Trick goldfarmers into say something bad about Kim Jong-il and the problem will solve itself.
