So, I've been hearing a lot of great things about DayZ. Is that good for us to host a server of? Is that even possible?

it is indeed an awesome game

to host a server you have to email the guys running the show and jump through a few hoops i think http://dayzmod.com/forum/index.php?/topic/7876-server-hosting-quick-faq/

hosting a private server might be possible but i don't know anything about that

part of what makes the game so awesome is the constant danger of other players murdering you for your beans

a private server might not give you that same feeling (unless you have a shitload of people)

It's a rather complex persistent character zombie apocalypse . Still in an alpha stage, very buggy, full of people who'd rather kill you than a zombie, and killer doors (that is, if a door shuts on you, your legs get broken and you're knocked unconscious to bleed to death).

The controls/interfaces are far more complex than in Terraria, and the only melee weapon is a hatchet, which needs to be reloaded in order to work.

You can rebuild vehicles and helicopters, but they're pretty prone to exploding.

Still, it looks interesting. But I won't be joining. My laptop's choking on a lot of modern stuff.
