Day time is the way to go. Stalked a couple guys in ghillies with some nice guns for about 30min in hopes that they had a camp or something, but had to turn around before I starved.

You get lucky and find one.

You unlock nothing. Find everything.

I haven't set one up for this yet, and I don't remember what I used last time because it was like 6 months ago.

It's an experience that one...must simply experience to understand.

Ask Lew what he thought of the walking simulator.

It's a MMOFPS. You survive against zombie's but the real threat are the other survivors, and there's no end game.

The shite gets fricking intense. Especially after you've built a character up after hours and hours and you are on the verge of getting killed and losing everything that you've worked for. Kill or be killed.

Yup. shite is pretty intense. Walking around an empty city with Nappy for an hour scavenging, then we see other guy run out of the building.

We yelled, "GET ON THE GROUND."

He ran away so we chased him for a good 5 minutes only to see him trying to sneak up on us with his axe out. I blew that mother fricker to smithereens.

Combat logging bitch. Always put an extra bullet into the skull.

Probably didn't have shite though so it probably saved you a bullet.

Any of you guys found a can opener? If so where? It is a must have more than anything else in this game right now.

A lot of shite is like wtf am I supposed to do with this? Found that defib and some spray bottle.

Good. Said they would update every week. Hopefully the alpha will speed up the dev with more players finding faults etc.

Mear: also made my way to cherno and found a working well. Looted a canteen from a dead body as well.

You just need to play it. Its the feeling of never knowing what is there. I said earlier, nothing scares you more than playing at night (game nighttime) and hearing a chopper coming in the distance. You're like, fckk does he have night vision??? HE IS COMING FOR ME! When actually, the dude is just flying around and can't see shtt!
