In a lengthy Reddit post last night, DayZ creator and Out of Ammo developer Dean Hall sounded off on the “terrible assumptions” he sees VR enthusiasts making about subsidized development deals and VR development in general.

Valve recently overhauled Steam’s review system, putting a larger focus on recent perspectives. The move made sense. Games are no longer static works. They constantly evolve thanks to updates and programs like Early Access. The system is, by and large, very useful, providing percentages that give narrow and wide…

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.
Oh hey, time to spend another few days trying to get this tune out of my head. Or weeks. Yeah, weeks.
Today's Highlight Reel shines the spotlight on enemies who show up out of nowhere, bad guys with invincible leg anatomy and a weirder-than-normal GTA V car-jacking.
