DayZ Interview

An interview on the Armchair General talks with Dean ‘Rocket’ Hall, creator of the DayZ Mod for Arma 2 that's caused a sensation since its release. He describes how his background in the New Zealand Air Force helped him with the project, and discusses a little of what the future hold for the project.

No, he's not surviving. He should have shot the troll and headed upstairs, presuming he had ammo.

Heck, even a quick shot to slow the troll down so the zombies snacked on his delicious corpse after he bled and passed out would have been good.

To try running away and then be vulnerable like that is asking for trouble.

I was just in a server where a guy was warned by a friendly sniper not to stand in an open field and he didn't listen. He was subsequently shot by another sniper.

Survival is not running away. It's about thinking on your feet and taking whatever action is necessary to survive.

If I encountered a troll like that I'd be grateful. Some will simply shoot on sight. This guy could be turned into bait whilst I made my getaway.

Yeah I think that was his first video, he 'improved' in the later ones. He shoots out their legs so they can't run.

Btw the music isn't simply dubbed in either, he is piping it into the game thru direct voice chat, so anyone within 30yards(?) can hear it.

TBH it wouldn't bug me so much except for 2 things. 1. He is posting those fucking everywhere, whoring desperately for attention. 2. He didn't even come up with the idea originally, because a similar thing happened to me before those vids were even made. A guy with a couple Z's following him runs by me like he needed help, so I killed the zombies and while I'm bandaging myself so I don't bleed out, he shoots me in the back. Of course, I now kill anyone I see doing that....but I don't like it.
