Get Project Zomboid
User avatar #78 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
That's not very similar to Day Z gameplay. Zomboid is a base building with massive amounts of easy to kill zombies. Day Z is a game where a single zombie can be a threat. The two games are very different.

Regarding this point, I believe the devs announced a single player mode at E3 this year.
User avatar #56 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
That is something I would be interested in. Would there be human bots? Just zombies gets boring. I'd like to be able to live with friendlies.

I don't remember that much, I think they were in the PC gaming presentation so you could probably find it on youtube.

the game is intended to be a horror game



zombies alone arent scary anymore. we know how to deal with them,we know how to fight them.


but the added effect of zombies AND humans..


that creates some real tension.
User avatar #33 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
Day Z is not a horror. Silent Hill is a horror. Day Z is an open world pvp survival game. I'm okay with there being other "bandit" styled players, but the game has too many with little encouragement not to. It's put too much emphasis on the pvp aspect and less on the zombies which the game started on.
User avatar #36 - angelious (08/24/2015) [-]
there are multiple forms of horror.


dayz is SURVIVAL HORROR.



#108 - anon (08/25/2015) [-]
How the fuck is DayZ classed as "horror"? There is no fucking suspense of not knowing whats after you, just fields full of deadheads.

Survival, sure, horror, lol.
User avatar #109 - angelious (08/25/2015) [-]
i see you finally found how to post as anon werta. gj.

also your view of horror is so...small. its making me sad.
User avatar #37 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
Resident Evil is a survival horror. Day Z is not a survival horror. Day Z is survival, but there isn't much horror to it. Just because it has zombies does not make it a horror game. If having monsters made games into horror games then Stubbs the Zombie would be a horror game.

Even the wikipedia page describes it as a FPS-survival game.
User avatar #46 - shanksjr (08/24/2015) [-]
I dunno, hearing a gun shot nearby when you're in a small town at night in DayZ is way scarier than anything I've come across in DayZ.

I spend all of my time avoiding contact with players other than my friends in DayZ and I wouldn't have it any other way. I once spent an hour watching a group of bandits from a forest on a hill as they cleared out surrounding buildings and attacked other players, it's like a documentary on human nature.
User avatar #49 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
It may make you on edge, but that doesn't make it a horror game.
User avatar #50 - shanksjr (08/24/2015) [-]
I'm not really sure what you would call a horror game then. Surely if you find it scary it's a horror game?
User avatar #51 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
Not exactly. Just because you fear something, doesn't make it horror. For example, you can be scared of anything. You could be scared of clowns, but that doesn't make any game about clowns a horror game. Maybe if the clowns were creepy and trying to kill you it would be.

Also, would you mind pasting a reply to angelious? He blocked me for debating with him.
User avatar #53 - shanksjr (08/24/2015) [-]
I mostly view it as the same genre as the movies that spawned it, zombie movies deal with all the same themes and are classed as horror.

Although I think people as a whole generally don't find them scary anymore (there is even zombie romance for fuck sake.), which is why a lot of modern zombie media follows the same route of the zombie apocalypse being a secondary threat to other survivors.

The feeling of being hunted by another player elicits the same response I felt whilst playing Alien: Isolation.

Sure, what do you want me to paste?
User avatar #55 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
Just because a movie/game has zombies, doesn't really make it a horror. Like you said, that zombie romance movie. Also Stubbs the Zombie is based on zombies but it is a comedy with the only horror elements just being hilarious references to typical zombie scenarios.

Alien: Isolation is horror. Being hunted by other players isn't really horror or every open world pvp game would be horror.

Paste this to #45 please:
"Anybody can edit it, but that doesn't mean everything on it is false.

pvp does not make it a horror game. Horror means it frightens you. The zombies are the only thing in that game that can be considered horror, but they aren't scary as you said yourself.

If the players hunting you is considered horror then every open world pvp game is classified as horror then.

And calling me stupid/dense for using logic, thumbing down all of my comments, and then blocking me so I can't debate with you anymore? That's some "win" you got there. "I guess I'll thumb him down and stop him from being able to reply. That'll make him look like he lost and that I won!". Sounds like you're kind of a bitch. When you try to insult someone's intelligence while arguing it makes it seem like you have nothing else to say."

Thanks. It's just petty to block people when you are debating.
User avatar #62 - shanksjr (08/24/2015) [-]
I can only see it being necessary to block an individual if they are spamming or being openly hostile without provocation.

I do agree that DayZ itself isn't a horror game, but down to personal subjectivity it could be seen as one by individual players. Sure for a bandit the game is an enjoyable road trip with friends, when I play with friends we all have fun.

But when I wondering the wastes of chernerus by myself with enough to make myself a target but not defend myself from the previously aforementioned, that's when the game becomes scarier than any recent game that's labelled as a horror game.

Hey, at least it doesn't rely on jump scares like 99.99% of modern horror games.
User avatar #64 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
The thing is I wasn't spamming him or being hostile.

The problem with having it labelled that way would case it to fall under every genre. A person could have any kind of fear and any game that has their fear would be considered horror to them, but that doesn't make it a horror. The game doesn't really have many horror aspects to it. Running away from bandits is more of a survival open world pvp game feature. Worrying about bandits/raiders is a very common thing in games. It's in Fallout, but that isn't a horror game. Fear of bandits isn't really a feature of a horror game. Fear of getting swarmed by zombies would be horror(though I never witnessed a massive horde. It was usually small groups), but the main threat in Day Z is the pvp.
User avatar #65 - shanksjr (08/24/2015) [-]
I think once the game is finished it could be classed as an actual survival horror, they've shown the horde independently and I do not ever want that chasing me. Just the alpha can't/ won't support it right now.
User avatar #68 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
It's a possibility, but as it stands now it isn't really horror. The game isn't really trying to scare you so it isn't really horror. It also doesn't have many horror elements aside from the zombies.

User avatar #43 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
So if I created a game I can label it as any genre I want? I could make a Sims knock off and label it as a survival-horror? Just because they create the game doesn't mean they choose what genre it falls under. It's what is in the game that dictates the genre, not what the creators say. Just because they call it a horror game doesn't make it one. If it focused more on the zombies than the players then it might be, but the fact that the game has a very strong pvp element to it makes it more of a pvp game. The players turned it into a pvp game. Pvp was always in it, but it kept getting more popular so they started to cater more to the pvp aspects.
User avatar #45 - angelious (08/24/2015) [-]
"wikipedia, the article everybody can edit, are more reliable than the actual devs of the game"


you can flaunt your stupidity all you want. the point still remains that dayz is a horror game. survival horror game. a ZOMBIE survival horror game. if you will.


the horror comes from not only the zombies, but also from the pvp elements. you dont know when there is a foe awaiting, or if the man you share room with,is a friend or a foe.

if you cant see the horror in that then truly the most horrific thing here is how dense you are.

Mind sending another reply?

"How am I pathetically obsessed? We were having a debate and you ran out and blocked me after thumbing down my points(even when some of them weren't even relevant to what we were debating). How am I obsessed for calling you out? How exactly did you prove me wrong? You yourself said the zombies weren't scary.

I don't post as anon because I don't see the point. Why would I need to post as anon to someone who can't even handle a simple debate? Why try to post as anon if it wouldn't get a response? Again you are trying to call me stupid, but you haven't got any reason to call me that. If someone disagrees with you that makes them "Stupid"? I brought up how it doesn't have horror features and I'm stupid?

Call me obsessed all you want, but I'd rather be obsessed than a petty bitch."

The pvp aspect was an inbuilt factor of the mod and subsequently the game.
Guns are woefully inefficient to deal with zombies; they're loud, attract the horde, and some of the weaker ones take multiple shots to drop a deadling when a fireaxe is an instakill as well as fairly common to find. the only thing guns are better at doing is killing other players so you can get their resources, which is a valid factor.

There are even rewards and punishments for having killed or helped other survivors, the bandit and hero skins. the bandit skin identifies you as a player killer but kinda blends you in with other zombies, the hero skin gives you a bunch of bonuses like faster movespeed and damage resistance (and cool flannel)

It's easier to be a dick and kill people, but it makes you likely to be killed yourself. helping people is harder but you become harder to kill and are seen as a friendly player.

TL;DR It was never a 'people vs zombies' game, it's a 'survival' game set in a zombie apocalypse, with all the ups and downs that go with it. (and there are even PVE servers for those wanting jolly co-operation)
User avatar #32 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
When I played Day Z, I don't think that special armor was in. I played the game years ago when it was just a Arma II mod instead of a standalone game. There were bandit skins, but I don't remember there being a "hero" skin. The only melee weapon was a knife(very rare) and a fire axe. Guns were pretty much your only defense unless you were lucky to find an axe. The game was originally meant to have zombies as the main focus, but it became too popular and people just wanted another pvp game so now the game is known as an open world pvp game.

That's not very similar to Day Z gameplay. Zomboid is a base building with massive amounts of easy to kill zombies. Day Z is a game where a single zombie can be a threat. The two games are very different.

Check out the error logs, If there's BSOD's there's going to be critical errors in the logs with info as to what's going on.

You mentioned "advanced settings" so you mean Advanced settings for power management? If so did you change the hybrid sleep stuff? that has been a bit flakey on certain computers I've tried to use it on.
User avatar #39725 - theorangefox (08/25/2015) [-]
The last time i had this issue was in windows 7, and it pointed to a driver. You might have a device onboard that is preventing sleep from happening. Usually the ethernet port driver is at fault if it is receiving traffic (windows has this bitch fit with power saving mode on ethernet ports) try looking in device manager to disable any power saving options for any drivers present.

No I'm complaining how a game intended about fighting zombies became fighting other players. The game was meant to just be zombies with the other threat of people, but almost everyone in it is going to kill you so it went from a zombie game to a pvp game with a side threat of zombies.
User avatar #24 - angelious (08/24/2015) [-]
the game is intended to be a horror game

User avatar #33 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
Day Z is not a horror. Silent Hill is a horror. Day Z is an open world pvp survival game. I'm okay with there being other "bandit" styled players, but the game has too many with little encouragement not to. It's put too much emphasis on the pvp aspect and less on the zombies which the game started on.

Resident Evil is a survival horror. Day Z is not a survival horror. Day Z is survival, but there isn't much horror to it. Just because it has zombies does not make it a horror game. If having monsters made games into horror games then Stubbs the Zombie would be a horror game.

Even the wikipedia page describes it as a FPS-survival game.
User avatar #46 - shanksjr (08/24/2015) [-]
I dunno, hearing a gun shot nearby when you're in a small town at night in DayZ is way scarier than anything I've come across in DayZ.

I spend all of my time avoiding contact with players other than my friends in DayZ and I wouldn't have it any other way. I once spent an hour watching a group of bandits from a forest on a hill as they cleared out surrounding buildings and attacked other players, it's like a documentary on human nature.

Not exactly. Just because you fear something, doesn't make it horror. For example, you can be scared of anything. You could be scared of clowns, but that doesn't make any game about clowns a horror game. Maybe if the clowns were creepy and trying to kill you it would be.

Also, would you mind pasting a reply to angelious? He blocked me for debating with him.
User avatar #53 - shanksjr (08/24/2015) [-]
I mostly view it as the same genre as the movies that spawned it, zombie movies deal with all the same themes and are classed as horror.

Although I think people as a whole generally don't find them scary anymore (there is even zombie romance for fuck sake.), which is why a lot of modern zombie media follows the same route of the zombie apocalypse being a secondary threat to other survivors.

The feeling of being hunted by another player elicits the same response I felt whilst playing Alien: Isolation.

Sure, what do you want me to paste?
User avatar #55 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
Just because a movie/game has zombies, doesn't really make it a horror. Like you said, that zombie romance movie. Also Stubbs the Zombie is based on zombies but it is a comedy with the only horror elements just being hilarious references to typical zombie scenarios.

Alien: Isolation is horror. Being hunted by other players isn't really horror or every open world pvp game would be horror.

Paste this to #45 please:
"Anybody can edit it, but that doesn't mean everything on it is false.

pvp does not make it a horror game. Horror means it frightens you. The zombies are the only thing in that game that can be considered horror, but they aren't scary as you said yourself.

If the players hunting you is considered horror then every open world pvp game is classified as horror then.

And calling me stupid/dense for using logic, thumbing down all of my comments, and then blocking me so I can't debate with you anymore? That's some "win" you got there. "I guess I'll thumb him down and stop him from being able to reply. That'll make him look like he lost and that I won!". Sounds like you're kind of a bitch.

User avatar #62 - shanksjr (08/24/2015) [-]
I can only see it being necessary to block an individual if they are spamming or being openly hostile without provocation.

I do agree that DayZ itself isn't a horror game, but down to personal subjectivity it could be seen as one by individual players. Sure for a bandit the game is an enjoyable road trip with friends, when I play with friends we all have fun.

But when I wondering the wastes of chernerus by myself with enough to make myself a target but not defend myself from the previously aforementioned, that's when the game becomes scarier than any recent game that's labelled as a horror game.

Hey, at least it doesn't rely on jump scares like 99.99% of modern horror games.
User avatar #64 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
The thing is I wasn't spamming him or being hostile.

The problem with having it labelled that way would case it to fall under every genre. A person could have any kind of fear and any game that has their fear would be considered horror to them, but that doesn't make it a horror. The game doesn't really have many horror aspects to it. Running away from bandits is more of a survival open world pvp game feature. Worrying about bandits/raiders is a very common thing in games. It's in Fallout, but that isn't a horror game. Fear of bandits isn't really a feature of a horror game. Fear of getting swarmed by zombies would be horror(though I never witnessed a massive horde. It was usually small groups), but the main threat in Day Z is the pvp.
User avatar #65 - shanksjr (08/24/2015) [-]
I think once the game is finished it could be classed as an actual survival horror, they've shown the horde independently and I do not ever want that chasing me. Just the alpha can't/ won't support it right now.
User avatar #68 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
It's a possibility, but as it stands now it isn't really horror. The game isn't really trying to scare you so it isn't really horror. It also doesn't have many horror elements aside from the zombies.
User avatar #40 - angelious (08/24/2015) [-]
suddenly getting the urge to call someone a casual non sarcastically..


"DayZ is a gritty, authentic, open-world survival horror hybrid-MMO game"


taken from steam description of the game. describtion made BY THE DEVS OF THE GAME.

User avatar #43 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
So if I created a game I can label it as any genre I want? I could make a Sims knock off and label it as a survival-horror? Just because they create the game doesn't mean they choose what genre it falls under. It's what is in the game that dictates the genre, not what the creators say. Just because they call it a horror game doesn't make it one. If it focused more on the zombies than the players then it might be, but the fact that the game has a very strong pvp element to it makes it more of a pvp game. The players turned it into a pvp game. Pvp was always in it, but it kept getting more popular so they started to cater more to the pvp aspects.
User avatar #45 - angelious (08/24/2015) [-]
"wikipedia, the article everybody can edit, are more reliable than the actual devs of the game"


you can flaunt your stupidity all you want. the point still remains that dayz is a horror game. survival horror game. a ZOMBIE survival horror game. if you will.


the horror comes from not only the zombies, but also from the pvp elements. you dont know when there is a foe awaiting, or if the man you share room with,is a friend or a foe.

if you cant see the horror in that then truly the most horrific thing here is how dense you are.

The pvp aspect was an inbuilt factor of the mod and subsequently the game.
Guns are woefully inefficient to deal with zombies; they're loud, attract the horde, and some of the weaker ones take multiple shots to drop a deadling when a fireaxe is an instakill as well as fairly common to find. the only thing guns are better at doing is killing other players so you can get their resources, which is a valid factor.

There are even rewards and punishments for having killed or helped other survivors, the bandit and hero skins. the bandit skin identifies you as a player killer but kinda blends you in with other zombies, the hero skin gives you a bunch of bonuses like faster movespeed and damage resistance (and cool flannel)

It's easier to be a dick and kill people, but it makes you likely to be killed yourself. helping people is harder but you become harder to kill and are seen as a friendly player.

TL;DR It was never a 'people vs zombies' game, it's a 'survival' game set in a zombie apocalypse, with all the ups and downs that go with it. (and there are even PVE servers for those wanting jolly co-operation)
User avatar #32 - wertologist (08/24/2015) [-]
When I played Day Z, I don't think that special armor was in. I played the game years ago when it was just a Arma II mod instead of a standalone game. There were bandit skins, but I don't remember there being a "hero" skin. The only melee weapon was a knife(very rare) and a fire axe. Guns were pretty much your only defense unless you were lucky to find an axe. The game was originally meant to have zombies as the main focus, but it became too popular and people just wanted another pvp game so now the game is known as an open world pvp game.

Every name on that list has been condemned as a vile cheater with no trial.

That isn't your call to make. It is theirs.
User avatar #105 - wertologist (08/21/2015) [-]
Just because something isn't illegal doesn't mean it isn't wrong. I don't support the hacking or what the cheaters were doing. I like many other people are taking joy in the bad things that are happening to bad people. How does that remove their freedom of choice? They chose to cheat and now they are revealed. Yes it is an invasion of privacy. I never said it wasn't and actually agreed with you so you can stop saying that. You sound like you are trying to defend cheaters. I have yet to hear any story about anyone being blacklisted on anything due to the hack.

When the hell did I say it was my choice? Please show me where I said that. You are making an awful lot of assumptions on me. Just because I don't see eye to eye with you means I automatically think that what happened was justified? Seriously, you need to stop assuming these things.

To make it more clear since you are not really reading what I say very well, I think the hack was illegal(because it is). It was an invasion of privacy. It sucks for the few who weren't on their to cheat. I think it's hilarious that the cheaters have been exposed. I'm aware no one but the person has the choice to reveal these things. I'm happy they were exposed. I'm not happy the non-cheaters were. I think what happens to the cheaters is most likely what they deserve(within reason. Just about anything could happen so I won't say I support everything that may come to them).

Stop making assumptions on my point of view based on what others feel.

It proves the existence of -a- wage gap, and being a secondary source makes no attempt to explain why that might be. Sure, you've got an example of a profession where for some reason women are earning 93 cents for every dollar a man makes, but you're ignoring that there are plenty of studies explaining probably causes. One being that women take maternity leave and men generally don't take paternity leave. In a career like nursing, I can see that being a huge disruption.

No problem. I loved your McDisiasters as well. May be a while til the next one though. I have to be in the mood to play Sims. It takes roughly 30 minutes just to get in the game to kill people.

I play Minecraft and Battlefront 2 (mods galore)mostly. I got a good server to play on for minecraft. If you'd like, I can PM you the IP.
