Thought it might be nice to get an expat dayz casual group going...are there any existing ones I could join?

Excellent idea. Thing is, I can't get it on Steam anymore since we switched over to domestic credit cards....do they have it at any of the PC rooms? Do the PC rooms here use any Steam games at all?

The video does a good job of outlining the game dynamics. I'd like to spend an afternoon in the air-conditioned comfort of the near-empty pc room near my house playing this. If you get a guy at the pc room who isn't indifferent, usually they will key into any new game you want to hook up and they'll do their best to make it happen, thereby making you a regular at their establishment.

Is Skyping an absolute necessity or is the in-game chatter sufficient for team play? This looks pretty sweet, eh?

If I buy the game on disc at a store...which servers will I be able to use to play online?

Bought the game on Steam yesterday, although the summer sale was already finished I'm quite confident I can play enough to get my money's worth. I got an amazingly low ping on a Korean server this morning 16ms!!! so I was pretty stoked. TIL that if you see couple of guys in the full-on camo suits doing a stake-out...assume they're going to gun you down. Good times.

This guy's commentary on the game is instructive and pretty damn funny at the same time:

Hi mate, sorry for the late reply...

here is a guide to setting up day z, it's best to use six updater as it does most of it for you. I don't think you even have to do the beta patch part now as the full version patch was released on steam. Make sure you open combined ops vanilla at least one time before installing dayz.

A friend and I are planning to start playing in a week or two once I'm back in Korea so pm your steam username to me and I'll add ya. three is a decent number.

Everyone on the Korean servers are bandits, except for one guy aptly named "Don'tShootMe"....who has been shot and killed more times than you can count.

If you haven't done the tutorials in Arma 2 or played single-player...learning how to play this game well is hella hard. It's pretty fun though.

Just noticed you're a fast show fan by the way...


Yeah, it's tricky, but you'll be surprised how quickly you'll get used to it. The standalone version is coming out in a couple of months too.

The griefers are out in full force on most [high population] servers. If we're playing at the same time, PM me your Steam ID and we can team up. Turns out a lot of us are noobs or know something worth hearing. Steam has a global chat that makes teaming up pretty easy. We're using Skype for team play...which makes a great global com for all team members regardless of location.

Anyways, drop a line if you wanna team up.
