First, or something! I don't know! Where am I? Who am I?

Edit: Oh, that's right, I'm nobody.

I've really never understood the appeal of this style of games.

Especially the whole start-with-literally-nothing aspect. Where do you come from? Do you just materialise in the world?

Finally an early-access open-world minecraft-ish game with zombies.

FINALLY!!

It's alright. Just like every other game of it's type. I love the genre, so I'll probably get 40 or so hours into this and then move on to the next survival game that will never be complete. Loot spawns are still way too long. I can play for an hour and have nothing more than a few sticks and some rotten meat.

Obligatory warning. If you get frustrated by being killed by every random person that doesn't know you, skip this (and the entire genre). It's deathmatch with loot. Just like DayZ, just like Rust, just like 7 Days To Die. You craft and build some shit, but in the "survival" aspect becomes trivial, and there becomes nothing left to do but kill and rob other people. Either people have nothing to lose and they'll try to kill you, or they have a stockpile of resources and weapons and they'll kill you. Or they have a bunch of friends and they'll kill you. After being killed enough, you learn not to trust anyone and that it's easier to kill anyone before they can kill you. Then you add to the cycle of kill on sight that will ruin the game for anyone that doesn't want to play deathmatch (and knows there are better games out there if you just want to shoot shit). Luckily, this game has PVE servers.

Again, I like the genre for what it is. But it's all the same cycle, and no new game has improved the formula. The problem with the genre is human nature.

5 bucks to call in an airdrop that others will more than likely get to before you.

Awesome.

The reason why people play H1Z1 is that the inventory works better at the moment in H1Z1 than it does in Dayz. Dayz in general is still a very buggy game after 1 year in early access. There are still no working cars or much to do in a way of crafting in Dayz.

You can also build basic bases in H1Z1 which is a functionality that was promised in Dayz but still hasnt been implemented.

H1Z1 can still prove to be a disappointing game but at the moment I would trust Sony more to finish its development than I trust the development team at Bohemia to be able to finish Dayz.

People being able to steal stuff that you've paid real money for seems all kinds of messed up.

Really who is playing or buiying these games?

This ^ be the reason I play this and been loving it.

Rorie QL haven't even watched and know it will be gewd.

Some how he's going to find a way to weaponize puppies and just have an army of murderous dogs as his commands, and if he's low on food, we all know he's not adverse to nibbling on them.

Posted by AlmostSwedish

Rust is a better game that both this and DayZ anyway.

Posted by BluPotato

relay who is playing these games DayZ is still up there on Steam sales

@jeff, @rorie: FYI The War Z is now called Infestation:Survivor Stories and is still for sale. Apparently, the guy responsible for The War Z is also responsible for Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing, which might explain a lot.

Rorie played viola, of course he's a monster.

Edited by KingdanglerBK

this game is so money! each update they put out makes it that much better! base building is finally a thing with metal doors and smelting down weapons to metal bars helps a shit ton. to bad the shotgun is OP right now and they should introduce more weapons and some type of body armor.

Edited by Hassun

Getting a Rorie QL might actually salvage the existence of this game to me.

@rorie I think the problem was that they initially promised the paid stuff would be cosmetic but then they started putting guns and ammo in crates as well.

Posted by ShaggE

I always want to get into one of these games, but then I actually play them, and that desire goes away really quickly.

Posted by joetom

Rorie is the real walking dead.

Posted by Milkman

What's the point of "releasing" a game in this state? I get that there is value for some people in following the development and playing along until it gets to its final state. But what seems more likely? A person seeing the game like this and thinking "okay, this sucks now but maybe it will be great some day?" Or a person seeing the game like this and thinking "this looks like shit" and never thinking about this game again? You're pretty much just assuring that everyone is going to have a poor first impression of your game.

I'd pay early access for a Dark Soulsy third person DayZ in an engine that plays and feels suitable for it. I'd drop triple digits on a kickstarter on something like that.

I tried taking apart pallets once for some cheap wood. Didn't go well even with the proper tools. It makes sense that punching them wouldn't work.

Posted by vhold

I don't think any of the players in this video knows why they're playing this game.

Edited by noizy

I will play one of these zombie survival games when one of them comes out of beta and is actually good and not bug ridden..... so, never?

Edited by MonkeyKing1969

How do you make a bow and arrow out of a shirt Jeff?

Well if this is your shirt....

Or a silk t shirt would work Silk makes a decent bow string in a pinch. But I woudl use dried seal gut shirts...that how I roll.

Posted by geirr

It seems like a genre with some potential but so far in all the games doing this, being in early access taken into mind, look bad and play bad. I guess maybe in a few years something appealing might happen but as of right now, it's certainly not for me.

Posted by kindpixel

Totally expected a Drew/Dan team here, and got Jeff/Rorie instead. Nothing against Drew/Dan, but yay :D.

Edited by JDillinger

It seems specious to claim that Day Z is widely more popular than this when this game just came out and it is currently one of the most watched games on Twitch.

Posted by GeneralBison

If DayZ Early Access wasn't broken enough garbage for you: H1Z1 Early Access!

Posted by dr_mantas

I love Rorie Quick Looks, but mostly for games I wouldn't enjoy. So this is great.

Posted by Hewitt

Survival games are this generation's 3rd person shooter...Too bad I hate survival games.

Posted by Zohar

I know these types of games aren't for everyone but to be honest this video doesn't really do the game justice. It's been out for about 2 weeks now and the devs are making constant, daily improvements.

It is already mechanically way ahead of DayZ standalone in almost every way. There's a lot of fun to be had here but currently there are a few issues that limit the scope a bit. Firstly, the map is currently only a fraction of what they have planned. It's like 1/8th the size of DayZ but servers have 4x as many players on them.

This has led to some overcrowding issues which amplified the low loot issue which itself was caused by a bug which has been fixed. It also led to the current deathmatch mentality which plagues the PVP servers.

Zombies, as seen in this video are actually intentionally "turned off" by SOE at the moment, and they have made strides to reduce the P2W aspects people are complaining about.

Hopefully they can find a way to solve the deathmatch issue, none of these other games have been able to yet, but at least this game offers a PVE option.

Overall, I've got about 20-30 hours in and have been having a blast. The crafting is deep and engaging and the world design is quite good.

"Ahhh Nature, fuck you." Not 30 seconds in and Rorie reminds me why I love him so much.

i love rorie. wanna see more of him on the site. more rorie/jeff QLs pls

Posted by monkeystick

I own Rust, Day Z, The Forest, The War Z (Infestation now), probably a few others.

My days in early access are over.

Rust is the only game of this genre that I have any confidence in still just because it's Garry Newman of Garry's Mod. He's got the time, money and passion to actually finish the project. We'll see.

What's wrong with The Forest? It's actually doing quite well and is updated frequently.

Always forget how good Rorie & Jeff Quick Looks are. Reminds me of old skool GB for one reason or another. Also, Jeff seems like he was in a good mood (less snarky). I like good mood Jeff!

This game seems real shady. And by that I don't mean it is dark.
