Well it's E3 time again. Dayz standalone info is already coming down the pipeline.

Haven't had a Dayz post in a while so I figured it appropriate to let everyone see some of the information that is coming from Dayz standalone.  E3 seems to be pretty awesome this year.  The new consoles Playstation 4 and Xbox One are causing quite a stir though honestly I'm a PC gamer so I'm kinda just sitting back with popcorn enjoying the war. I've not posted about E3 info yet but I'll make a much larger post later after E3 is over and all the good info has been collected. Anyways Check out the Dayz standalone stuff below.

Dayz Standalone New features list. Found at DayzTV

Dayz standalone new features

  • 90% of buldings are enterable
  • The amount of locations for loot to spawn will be very high, but the spawn-rate will be incredibly low.
  • “Commit Suicide” will be possible. Right click on a weapon in the inventory, then “commit suicide”, “are you sure?”
  • The humanity system is not in the Alpha
  • F7… F8 to F12 is reserved for Facial Gestures

  • You could add poison to a canteen bottle, and then give someone the canteen bottle
  • If someone shoots you and you’re wearing a shirt, then that shirt is going to get damaged

You can still suggest games and leave comments on the "Contact Watchsurvival" tab of the website. From now on leave all game suggestions there.  Thanks.

Survival Games List updated! Six more survival games added: Timber and Stone, Wurm Online, 7 Days to Die, Miscreated, Zday, Survivor Zero

Hello survivors! Took a little time off today to update the survival games list with some fresh games.  I just want to again remind everyone that I read all your comments and your suggestions and I try to get to them when I can, please do not think your comments or suggestions go unnoticed.  2013 is the year of survival games as the survival games list just keeps getting bigger and bigger!  Keep the suggestions coming!  Also I am looking for more feedback for the website. If any of you have website suggestions on layout or features or anything else for that matter please leave suggestions or comments. If you think everything is fine as it is, feel free to say that as well.  I feel like as a whole the survival genre needs a community so I may possibly be adding a forum in the future to watchsurvival if others agree and think that is a good idea.   Don't forget to give Watchsurvival a like on facebook as well https://www.facebook.com/Watchsurvival as I share all types of survival game related stuff there as well (no spam I promise) anyways, on to the reason you came here. The Games!
