Anyone else here enjoy DayZ? How about other Arma II mods?
I want someone to tag along with. It's less creepy and overall funner.

DayZ is a really good proof of concept, but it's not well enough put together that I want to currently play it. I've been waiting for the standalone because hopefully that'll be less glitchy than the Arma II version. I really like survival simulators, but sadly there aren't very many of them. Until DayZ it's had a very small demographic and a small amount of games. The other reason I haven't played it is because I don't want to buy Arma II when Arma III is coming out so soon (or so I thought, months ago). I plan on buying Arma III, and I think it'd be a waste for me to buy Arma II a few months before it becomes outdated and I buy the next game in the series.

I have yet to play it (tight budget when I found out about it, now waiting on the standalone to be ready), but there was a month or two where I could not get enough of the news and stories around it. Rock Paper Shotgun's surviving in Day Z series really made clear the power of permadeath to make character stories matter. The stories and videos posted in the DayZ subreddit are hilarious and moving.

What do you guys mean "Wasteland"? The only game I know of called Wasteland was for DOS
Wasteland is a serverside mod/mission for Arma II Operation Arrowhead Beta. Basically it's complete sandbox mode for the game. Just about every weapon and vehicle (trucks, tanks, helicopters, etc) are available during missions. There are 2 teams, BLUFOR and OPFOR, as well as independent players, which if they choose, can set up their own squads(small teams).
To find the servers, you have to de-select everything not Arma 2 related in the expansions sub-menu of the main menu of Arma II OA Beta. Then search for a server, type "wasteland" in the host filter and hit refresh. I personally then sort by ping for servers.
I've personally been frequenting the Clan of Brothers server which has 48 max players if anyone wants to join me.
