State of Decay is way too easy.

The game is great, probably tied with Project Zomboid as the best zombie sim, but it's simply way too damn easy. Triple digits of all resources after ~4 hours of playing, 15-20 survivors, max upgraded every building, five or more fully trapped outposts which basically secure an entire damn town, etc. I'm also swimming in ammo, influence, and trust.

Far too easy unfortunately. With all I knew about the game I was expecting quite a challenge. The farther I got the easier it became. All my resource consumption is within 2 (plus and minus depending on the resource), I haven't lost any characters, and I can cut through a horde of zombies with Marcus no problem.

I really like State of Decay, but the whole game needs some refining.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

No. It's been out on the 360 for several months with a few updates. The early access is for the port, the game itself is complete.

Yeah, my Marcus with /any/ heavy weapon and a spare snack on hand can solo an entire infestation no problem. I don't even need guns in this game. I literally cannot lose any characters I control, especially with that whole self-revive system.

No, it's done. The PC port is just in beta (And it can barely be called that, it's practically bug free except for some minor audio sync and control issues)

The sandbox mode is supposed to make the game harder each time you "refresh" the world, but it probably isn't the kind of difficulty you are looking for.
