Day Z Video Diary, Day 2: The Lost Art of Running Away

In which James meets a cow, dreams of an island paradise and accidentally dooms a friendly player.

If you watched the first episode of our Day Z video diary, you'll know that Eurogamer TV's James Hills had a harrowing experience at the hands of another player on his first day as a clueless survivor of the zombie apocalypse.

In his second diary and second attempt to survive the harsh world of Day Z, James is clearly traumatised, but not really any the wiser. Watch his hopes swell and then get cruelly dashed when he hits upon the idea of establishing his own safe island enclave. Sad.

Later, he has his second encounter with a fellow player, which works out a little differently to the last one...

In each episode of our Day Z video diary, you'll walk a mile in James' shoes as he learns the Day Z ropes the hard way and tries to stay alive until the following dawn. Look out for the next episode on Friday lunchtime. If you missed Day 1, it's embedded below for your convenience. Enjoy!
