It's not too late to play
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 popular Arma II Combined Operations mod is now on the platform.
Despite how many people seem to be playing DayZ, there are many more who aren't, and this will only help grow that audience. I'm still holding out for DayZ Standalone so I can go in fresh, but easy mod installations are certainly something I can get behind.
