Who can be trusted in the zombie apocalypse?The situation gets really severe. You are one of the rare people, who survived the outbreak of a deadly virus. Not for too long, though, as you will soon find out that it is only the beginning of the real struggle. Same as thousands of players around the world, you are equipped with simple clothes, a road flare and a rag. Having no food, water or medical supplies, you do not have any other choice than to wander around the 225 km square landscape of Chernarus.On your way you will come across variously looking zombie characters, as well as living ones, who might help you or stab you to death. Who can be trusted, when everyone struggles for his own life? You always take the risk that your best friend will be your worst nightmare. The tension is enhanced when you realize that once you die, there’s no way back - you lose all your items and achievements and start from scratch.Developers aim at realismGritty, authentic, open-world – these three features characterize best the Day Z gameplay. After a few minutes of playing, you will realize that your protagonist is not a demi-god, but a real human being, who needs to eat, drink and stay healthy.

From James Dashner, the author of the New York Times best-selling Maze Runner series, comes an all-new, edge-of-your seat adventure. Eye of Minds is the first book in The Mortality Doctrine, a series set in a world of hyperadvanced technology, cyberterrorists, and gaming beyond your wildest dreams...and your worst nightmares. Michael is a gamer. And like most gamers, he almost spends more time on the VirtNet than in the actual world. The VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and it's addictive. Thanks to technology, anyone with enough money can experience fantasy worlds, risk their life without the chance of death, or just hang around with Virt-friends. And the more hacking skills you have, the more fun. Why bother following the rules when most of them are dumb, anyway? But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And recent reports claim that one gamer is going beyond what any gamer has done before: he's holding players hostage inside the VirtNet. The effects are horrific - the hostages have all been declared brain-dead. Yet the gamer's motives are a mystery. The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker. And they've been watching Michael. They want him on their team. But the risk is enormous. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid. There are back alleys and corners in the system human eyes have never seen and predators he can't even fathom - and there's the possibility that the line between game and reality will be blurred forever. 1.

Winston Wong used to test video games but has left his downward-spiraling career to follow in the footsteps of Encyclopedia Brown, his favorite childhood detective. When the Pennysaver misprints his new job title, adding an extra S to his listing, Winston becomes a "seniors sleuth." He gets an easy first case, confirming the natural death of a 90-year-old man. However, under the surface of the bingo-loving senior home is a seedier world where a genuine homicide actually occurred. Winston finds himself surrounded by suspects on all sides: a slacker gamer administrator, a kind-hearted nurse, and a motley crew of eccentric residents. To validate his new career choice (and maybe win the girl), he must unravel the truth from a tangle of lies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Noah DeBiase.

Rasanter Science-Fiction-Thriller, in dem 300-Star Gerard Butler nach dem gewaltlosen (Wort-)Gefecht der Geschlechter in Die nackte Wahrheit wieder mit astreiner Adrenalin-Action auf den Putz haut. Regie beim futuristischen Actionknaller führte das Team Mark Neveldine und Brian Taylor, die für die irrwitzige Hochoktan-Hatz in Crank 1 & 2 verantwortlich zeichnen. Die Story erinnert dabei nicht unwesentlich an das letztjährige Jason-Statham-Vehikel Death Race sowie an den Schwarzenegger-Klassiker Running Man. Allen gemeinsam ist eine Zukunftsvision, in der Sträflinge für Gladiatorenspiele auf Leben und Tod antreten müssen und dies zwecks Massenunterhaltung live übertragen wird. Protagonist Kable (Butler) ist der populärste Kämpfer der Internet-Hitserie Slayers. Der Clou an der Geschichte ist, dass Kable per Gehirnchip vom jungen Gamer Simon (Logan Lerman) kontrolliert wird und selbst keine direkten Entscheidungen treffen kann, obwohl es sein Leben ist, das auf dem Spiel steht. Entwickelt worden ist das Spektakel vom exzentrischen Milliardär Ken Castle (Dexter Michael C. Hall vergnügt sich als bizarrer Bill-Gates-Verschnitt), der mit dem Sims/Second Life-angelehnten Society Furore gemacht hat. In diesem virtuellen Spiel werden echte Menschen ebenfalls ferngesteuert und Kables Frau (Amber Valetta aus Transporter 2 fungiert als schöne Frau vom Dienst) ist notgedrungen eine der Schauspielerinnen sprich Sexsklavin eines unappetitlich fetten, perversen Gamers. Sie von ihrem erniedrigenden Schicksal zu befreien und ihre gemeinsame kleine Tochter aus dem Sozialsystem zurück zu gewinnen, motivieren Kable sich von seinem Spieler ab zu nabeln. Von glühenden Rachegefühlen getrieben will Kable vor allem Mastermind Castle an den Kragen. Pausenloses Maschinengewehrgeratter und Nonstop-Explosionen sind die Stützpfeiler der zahlreichen Actioneinlagen, bei denen sich Butler wie gehabt als charismatischer Berserker profiliert. Neben der Action wird auch eine zum Nachdenken anregende Rahmenstory über virtuelle Welten (mit coolen CGI-Effekten realisiert) und ihre Auswirkungen auf menschliche Moral erzählt. Eine Reihe von Nebenfiguren verleihen zwar nicht unbedingt extra Substanz, so doch Kolorit. So führt Rapper Ludacris eine Anti-Establishment-Fraktion namens Humanz, The Closer Kyra Sedgwick spielt eine bissige TV-Show-Moderatorin und John Leguizamo kreuzt als Kables Gefängnisgenosse auf. Das Finale bietet eine surreale Tanzeinlage in Kastles Hauptquartier, die ziemlich over-the-top, aber genau richtig für diesen SciFi-Actioner der überspitzten Art ist, der zudem mit einem wuchtigen Soundtrack auffährt.
