How to politely rob someone in DayZ

You don't always have to be a giant dick towards other players in DayZ. I mean it's still pretty dickish to rob someone, but at least it was a nice robbery. (Via Reddit)

DayZ has sold more than 400,000 Early Access copies

For what seemed like ages, DayZ existed only as a mod for ArmA II. Then, finally last month, DayZ saw a standalone release in alpha form via Early Access. It made more than $5 million in its first day. Clearly, people want ma...

DayZ made $5.1 million in 24 hours

The standalone version of DayZ was released on Steam Early Access yesterday and it's already made $5.1 million in sales. That's insane! 172,500 copies were sold in the first 24 hours, and that number is just going to continue...

DayZ Standalone alpha released on Steam Early Access

An honest-to-goodness alpha of DayZ's standalone release has hit Steam. It's here! As the developers at Bohemia Interactive have indicated before, this isn't meant for most players. The Steam Early Access page has similar di...

That standalone DayZ edition is still far away

Just last week, an entry in Steam's databases made it look like the standalone edition of Dean 'Rocket' Hall's hugely popular ARMA II mod DayZ was imminent. However, posting on reddit, Hall confirmed that there's still more w...

A Chernarus Sing Along in DayZ - Challenge Scot!
by Jamie McGinn

This week's challenge is in the Arma 2 mod DayZ, in which I have to track down another player, hope that they don't shoot me on sight, and then get them to sing me a song. DayZ is notorious for having a very hostile player base, so actually managing to even talk to another player without getting killed instantly is quite the achievement all on its own!

If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!

Far Cry: Blood Dragon, The Last Of Us & The Ouya

Well kids, it looks as though The Destructoid Show missed April Fool's Day, which is a bummer, but hey, here's a totally normal episode that isn't themed or anything. Well, for starters, Grand Theft Auto V's box art has been...

DayZ console port more likely than you might think

Over the past year especially, we've seen a significant amount of crossover between consoles and PC. It's been exciting to watch smaller console titles finally garner financial success after making the transition to Steam and...

DayZ mod for Arma II now accessible from Steam

In the midst of last year's drama surrounding The War Z, I had practically forgot that the original DayZ mod that helped kickstart this whole zombie craze was never available on Steam. Well, that's no longer the case -- the p...

The Witcher 3 Announced, Day Z Gameplay & The Last Of Us

Hey gang! Here's that show thing we do every few days. We did it again. Dead Space 3 came out, and it doesn't suck, according to some people. (Other people say it sucks.) The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt got announced, which...

The nightmarish world of DayZ comes to life

I really love watching the team at Corridor Digital put out original videos for the Internet to enjoy. Typically their shorts usually utilize flashy effects and over the top fights. This time though, the boys gave a realistic spin with their latest take on DayZ. It's surprisingly heavy, and I want a full blown movie of this now.
