Heh, I read an article on this by Charlie Brooker yesterday.
Don't judge me, but I love sniping games | Charlie Brooker | Comment is free | The Guardian
If you have £9.99 spare, and you also have three friends who also have £9.99 spare, I highly recommend you all get on Steam and purchase Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army for some serious four player co-op action fun.
WW2? Snipers? Zombies? What more could you ask for!!!
While it seems to be getting bad rep by the reviewers, it's actually great fun playing co-op with mates and is a bit 'Left 4 Dead'. The more of you there are, the more the zombies come. There is an awesome selection of sniper rifles, and it looks nice as well.
I liked Sniper Elite, but zombies just doesn't seem right for a sniping game, I was told the damn things are armed too, I'm assuming that's just certain heavy zombies?
I'll probably still end up getting it in a sale at some point though, I like zombies, I like sniping.. just never tried the two together :P
Sniper Ghost Warrior 2's next on the list for me!
I want to play it too! Fly a chopper full of players into the ground and watch the chat explode lol
Will look into the game tonight. Sounds like a blast!

Yea, they are effectively "tanks" with MG42's. They are a nightmare. There are also suicide zombies that are covered in Stielhandgranate's and dynamite that charge you. Normal zeds use hands/teeth/entrenching shovels.
The zombies and sniping concept works really well. Adds pressure when you have 50 zombies heading towards you. You have to make every shot count.
I really need to get Sniper Elite - I played a demo of V2 and loved it. Those who have played both, which is better, 1 or 2?
ill be surprised if you haven't played Dayz yet.. Now that's a game. Thinking about putting up a server. Just need to get a Windows server licence for it.. Its currently in France with CentOS 6 on it.
ARMA3 Lite Alpha Keys
There are bound to be some more Edugeekers with ARMA3 Lite Alpha keys to give away for free. Failing that, the game is only £19.99 (which is a great price for a new game) and it includes full Alpha access, full Beta access (when it goes live) and then the actual game itself (when it's released). Even though a DayZ stand alone is due out, they are bound to port it into ARMA3 so worth having it for that when it happens!!!
Haha! I'm not made of money you know! Believe me mate, it took a good while for me to understand respawning. I'd always have to drive miles, and when i got there, pop. Respawn. Pop. etc etc. Manic to say the least!
I haven't ever. played Dayz (Shield up for hurling abuse). Had to research it last night (Double shield up). I thought it was a expansion pack to the game, such as new missions / map packs (It's too much! Stop it!). I'll probably end up buying all 3 to be honest, A3, Dayz and Sniper Elite.
I've been scourging the internet for some keys, and this forum. May just have to bite the bullet and buy it Can't wait to have some fun with people though

I bought Nazi Zombie Army for me and my girlfriend. We played through the village campaign, but the appeal was lost pretty much after this. The game's main way of increasing difficulty is to just throw more numbers at you, without providing any interesting scenarios (a la L4D2's crescendo events).
I do love the x-ray cam on single player, though. A unique element, which is a shame as I'd say it's main its selling point. I'd like to see things like that on more games.
You should of stuck out a bit more as there are some events like that. First is a boss to take down, then later on there is a blatant L4D2 rip of having to gas up a truck to escape, then another boss or two. Wile it's pretty linear, it's still good fun on the harder difficulties.I bought Nazi Zombie Army for me and my girlfriend.
