So Steam had a sale on WarZ, the much derided zombie MMO and, being a curious type of fellow with an eye for a bargain, I bought it. I haven't played it that much so far (about an hour and 20 minutes) but it hasn't been such a terrible experience. I've deliberately chosen quiet servers so as to give me a chance to learn the gameplay and also not get shot by random bandit types, which is often cited as one of the game's least attractive aspects. The graphics are pretty good, the mechanics aren't too bad but with some minor glitches and the zombies are fairly easy to deal with, although without body armour you do take serious damage quite quickly. I haven't fired a gun yet, although I do now have a shotgun, so it'll be interesting to see what happens when I attempt to splatter a zombie/another player's head all over the place. It'll be interesting to see how this game pans out so I'll keep this blog updated with my anti-zombie adventuring. At least until other players keep killing me and I permanently rage quit the game.
