DayZ Short Film Is, Surprise, Not A Feel-Good Movie

DayZ is a game about the zombie apocalypse, survival, and permadeath. It is also—thanks to players—about trolling, griefing, and the truest, douchiest darkness of the human heart. Bitter enemies become the best of friends... until it stops being convenient. » 1/08/15 5:10pm 1/08/15 5:10pm

I Wish More Games Were About Deception

I really enjoyed Tales From The Borderlands, but one bit, especially, struck me. As Fiona, cold-hearted con artist extraordinaire, I had to lie. But I had to do it artfully, or else I was in deep trouble. It was one of the tensest video game moments I've played in ages. » 11/27/14 3:00pm 11/27/14 3:00pm

DayZ Player Explains Why You Shouldn't Yell 'I'm Friendly'

It's the most basic interaction in the game. Two players meet in the wastes, someone yells "I'M FRIENDLY I'M FRIENDLY", and then eventually everyone dies. » 10/16/14 6:30pm 10/16/14 6:30pm
