There's a small learning curve to get from finding nothing to being able to get items and basic gear very quick. Loot maps probably help the most, like www.dayzdb.com/map. If you get to a supermarket you're pretty much set for basic gear.Originally Posted by Zarchon
I got it. I don't know what I am doing wrong but I can't find weapons or food. I run around until some zombies find me and chase me down. That's all I have been able to do. Not worth it to me and I got it for $19.99. Just my two cents. Obviously some people enjoy it. Good luck on what ever you decide.
LMAO! I'm glad you're not going this route OP, Daisy is just child-infested Zombie deathmatch. The standalone game will be much better, but regardless that's such a horrible statement. Daisy is even buggier than ArmA 2, and um, some people want a squad simulator and not zombie deathmatch? Anyway, ArmA 3 is scheduled for later this year (Q3 I think) so if you want to wait, it's not a bad idea. If you do get ArmA 2, get Combined Ops, Play withSIX, and ACE 2. All of this in a private, organized coop match with good custom missions is one of the best gaming experiences one can have.It's alright on it's own, but mostly worth it for DayZ
Graphics don't matter much for this type of game, especially when there's not a huge difference between them. Regardless, ArmA 2's graphics exceed BF3 in a number of ways, specifically polygon count, texture quality, and view distance. However it's time of day settings could use improving, and there are still some graphics bugs left in the engine. This and optimization are what ArmA 3 seemed to be focused on; they scrapped the best features, namely the fully functional 3D editor, ability to put on enemy uniforms to go undercover, and they said there has been "no progress" on the desperately-needed AI improvements.
