DayZ – Standalone – Standalone?

Brian Hicks, during an interview at E3 stated that a single player version(and locally hosted servers) of DayZ will be available near beta. Interesting turn of events based on some of the past standpoints.

How fun do you think it will be to play on your own server with friends that no one in the public can join? Will this break the tension?


SethBling put together a video explaining a project he worked on in which he taught a computer to play Super Mario World. Using evolutionary learning of NEAT(NeuroEvolution
of Augmenting Topologies), this project parallels how complex life evolved from simple beginnings.

More on NEAT can be read in this University of Texas paper. You will find great detail in the following articles:
