News Comments > DayZ Early Access Sells 3M
9. Re: DayZ Early Access Sells 3M Jan 24, 2015, 16:15 Wallshadows
 
I don't think money can fix the problems that plague the ARMA 2 engine. The most that can be done has likely already been achieved in the mod scene with Epoch and, last I heard, the stand-alone has barely anything to compare between the two versions.

They could update to ARMA 3 but I suspect it's a combination of lower system requirements to drive higher sales and sitting on their laurels while money gets shoveled to them hand over fist. I thought ARMA 3 early beta had a conversion of the mod though but I may be wrong.

I thought the Revenant was the new class unless I'm getting all these terms mixed up from my time in Final Fantasy.

Acknowledges Elemental Shaman mobility issues; gives Warlocks a buff to their cast on movement ability.

But hey, thanks for buffing that garbage Storm Elemental and destroying two-target cleave from Enhanced Chain Lightning!

This is why it'll never lease Early Access. It doesn't have to.

Did they ever say that though? I honestly don't remember their stance on expansions but it makes sense to get an injection of cash flow outside of their shop. It's been a long time coming for those of us who were waiting for an expansion to return though.

The Revenant sounds like a design I could get behind and being blind makes your class at least 10 times more interesting. Was that also an Engineer with a giant Wrench ala Torchlight?

Looking forward to more information although the only gripe I have is the fact that it's in a jungle. Jungles in MMOs find a way to anger the blood.

It should have been scrapped the moment they had Paul W.S. Shiterson on board.

Owell, it'll get a reboot in five years by Uwe Boll. What's more scary than that is that Uwe has made some okay movies recently which is surely a sign of the apocalypse.

FX-6300 @ 4.4ghz which puts me in the 90th percentile of processors and yet "Sorry, your computer does not meet the minimum specifications required to run this product. Please review the details below for more information."

I'm going to have to call bullshit on that.

I was previously eyeing out a R9 280 to upgrade from my 7850 since they tend to fall in to the price range I was looking for (~225) but I might sit on this instead and wait for it to go that low.

I wish the cost of the NSFW deck wasn't $35 because I don't want to pay the 'lets break records because we're internet famous' price.

They need an actual game designer.

They could give it back to Gearbox.

Off topic:

I updated to Windows 8.1 and immediately noticed my disk usage was constantly at 98 - 99% and it took me about two days of dicking around to find a solution and that solution was to disable BITS along with several other services which seem to tie in to Windows Update somehow which means Windows Update decided to stop working. The solution to that solution was to get WSUS and update through command.

What a god damn mess.

Incidentally, I bet the beta will last three times longer in order to maximize those sales to a game that will be F2P.

Wow, really? They want to do a HD version of Zero? Gross.

It makes me wonder if there is some kind of license issue now in regards to RE2 since they haven't touched on it in so long in spite of easily being the best title in the series.

The true horror is trying to play this on KB+M. It's about as horrifying as I suspected so I'll really have to haul ass and find a cheap gamepad.

Still worth it though. Ink ribbons!
