Fact: Zombies Are Not As Scary As Dinosaurs

Fact: Zombies Are Not As Scary As Dinosaurs

Adding zombies, ala DayZ, isn't the only way you can mod military shooter ArmA. You can also do the awesome thing, and add dinosaurs.

This clip is an animation test that McRuppertle is working on, with the ultimate aim of adding an enormous Tyrannosaurus to the game world.

Anyone who has played Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, or even Jurassic Park on the SNES, will know that if correctly implemented this will represent the pinnacle of modern game design.

    Jara Tava!

      THANK YOU! I thought for years the name of that game was Java Tara and thought it had disappeared into obscurity. Now I have found it!

    If someone were to mod Arma 3, with a DayZ style game, where you would have all the Dinosaur types from Jurassic Park that would be *amazing*. Of course, I'd want carnivore, herbivore AND omnivore types, with the ability for them to be both hostile and friendly until scared by you or others. I could see that having some amazing potential!!!

      OpenWorld dinosaur survival MMO. Ohhhh hell yes!! The things I would do to get my hands on a game like this. Teaming up with other players to bring down a T-Rex, hunting velociraptors in dense forest. Maybe even factions that protect the animals... Please!

      Orion: Dino Horde *seems* to have a lot of that. The metacritic score is offputting, but if the comments are any guide that score is for an earlier game. Plus, it's on free eval on Steam right now.

      Anyone know if it's actually any good?

      Also: Gotta love the deeply thoughtful choice of lyrics in that song.

    ArmA/DayZ, Oculus Rift and Titanfall must make up about 95% of articles on Kotaku at the moment.

      oh really? Did you see the fireworks festival? or the condoms?

    Anyone remember Dinowars? They should do that, with rideable dinos and evil frog men and junk. I'd play that.

      Dino Riders. I could never pronounce dioneoychus (the raptor thing)

        Die-NON-ee-kus. :) (Deinonychus is the right spelling).

    The T-Rex in Jurassic Park on the SNES scared the heck out of me as a kid. I blame the music that goes along with the encounter.

    ORION: Dino Horde FTW.

    Where have you people been?

    ArmA x Monster Hunter

    You know you want it.

    Shoot her! SHOOOOoooot heeeeeeeerr!

      That raptor cage was recently up for sale. Imagine that in your backyard as a feature.

        Wanted it, backyard space said "no"


      Clever girl.

    I feel I actually need a gaming PC for this, nothing else has made me feel that way in a long time!

    Vision based on movement + Oculus! Marriage made in heaven. Also, terrifying.

    You guys all need to get in on this then.
