    DayZ

    DayZ, the zombie apocalypse mod for ArmA 2, is all the rage. I tried it last night. It was dark, spooky, and tense. No more than five minutes after spawning for the first time, I found myself in a field lying prone in pitch darkness. What's worse, I was surrounded by zombies that I could hear, but not see—with the exception of an occasional silhouette against the night sky. I crawled away to what appeared to be the safety of a building in front of which a flare burned only to be shot to death by another survivor (possibly a bandit). I didn't stop until nearly 4 AM.

    We should get some people together for this.

    Good article on the mod: http://goo.gl/jrFkp

    It's a pretty awesome mod, I have been playing it by myself up to this point. Here is a great tool for installing the mod and updating it

    The STEAM sale bit me today and I bought both Arma 2 campaigns for $17.99. Downloading now and plan to load up Z later tonight.

    The corn field in Left4Dead was also the scariest part in the game. ProTip: When the Zombie Apocalypse comes, stay out of the corn!

    I finally got this up and running, after realizing I had to install the BETA patch. This is my first experience with ARMA. It has to be the worst interface I've ever experienced in a game. None of it is intuitive... at all.
