The video blog puts the development team closer to the games fans by allowing everyone to actually see what’s been going on over at the DayZ standalone camp.

The video shows off some of the new menu system, user interface and clothing system.  Later in the video they show off some tweaked areas of the map known as Chernarus, from the Arma II mod.  They also explain some of the loot spawn system.

“It would be fair to say that inventory and crafting are the key development objective currently, second only to the client/server architecture (makes DayZ more like an MMO), and new zombie AI mechanics (an ongoing task).”

Nightmare Busters

Super Fighting Team, a development, production and publishing company based out of California has announced plans to release Nightmare Busters, for the Super Nintendo, possibly this year.

This will be the first game released for the SNES, in North America, in almost 15 years.  President Brandon Cobb, in an interview with Chaotic Games, revealed no firm release date

As soon as the official release date is confirmed, it will be announced on our website and company Facebook page, as well as via e-mail to all of our pre-order customers and mailing list subscribers.

If you still have a working SNES system and have a liking for older 16 bit graphics, this should be a nice surprise for you.
