  1. To be quite honest, the Halloween photos look like a Parasyte thing from the anime. I kind of suspect it is going to pull an Alien/reaper and decapitate you instead of bursting from your chest.
  2. This is what I am curious about. Is Ark going to try to transfer over to the next gen consoles (and maybe continue with the lifespan a bit; Extinction was supposed to be the epic conclusion, too) or finish out the game on the current hardware and move onto that sequel that has been talked about since 2017?
  3. To be quite honest, I just assumed the ship either reached its destination or crashed. Missions would make sense in the need to repair the ship and defeat Rockwell to continue on to the destination.
  4. I am really interested in the time capsule stuff. I missed out on experiencing a lot of that, and while I will miss some of the conveniences I am looking forward to trying out classic flyers and the like.
  5. No offense taken. Like I said, I repurposed an old thing I had around the house rather than using my main thing. I don't really plan to upgrade the computer myself, but I am in the process of replacing my main computer so this is what I have for now.
  6. I'll give the manager a shot. Thank you for the suggestion.
  7. Also specs are: CPU: AMD A12-9800 Radeon R7 GPU: AMD Radeon R7 RAM: 8.00 GB
  8. Honestly, I would wait all day, but it crashes into an error textbox pretty quickly. It will not even load.
  9. Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Honestly, I don't know all the details about my friends' laptops if their systems are a problem.
  10. Because it crashes whenever I run dedicated and doesn't whenever I run nondedicated.
  11. Help with PC Server Start Up So a few friends were finally convinced to join Ark around Genesis and I have been trying to do an Island run with them on a server I hosted to get them through the tutorial stage before ramping up to other maps. I would love to host a dedicated server, but I repurposed an old desktop just to do the hosting and its limit seems to be nondedicated server. Fine. The problem is, somehow, she cannot find my nondedicated server. It doesn't show up. We were in the same room. I checked by friends, nondedicated, and every other category in case there was a mistake
  12. Definitely looking forward to the new map and all the trimmings. I would love to see the crystal wyverns become official. Honestly, I would prefer them to another real world dino, but I would happily take them both.
  13. I think the turtle was angering a school of fish and bringing it to the turtle for it to eat. You have to protect it during the process. The whale, though, I am not sure yet.
  14. Did you download part 1 in the store in addition to buying the pass? I had to do that for all my DLCs on PS4. There was a thread and tweet on it, I remember. If you have and it still isn't working, you probably need to file a ticket.
  15. May I ask which livestream this was?
  16. You see, I have heard both ways in the lead up to Genesis. I always assumed that it was a limitation on official, but I don't have a clue if this is normal.
  17. I am sure there are some people that would agree with you there, but I think 76 has a lot more wrong with it than just being something no one asked for. Ark has its problems for sure, but it has to be microtransaction riddled, with a premium subscription, have collector's edition memorabilia with a health hazard, and a bare minimum $60 initial buy in at release altogether before I start comparing it to 76. I would say if no one wanted it, no one would buy it and everyone would move on, but if 76 and Anthem have taught me anything it is that there is a market for everything. Take
  18. They were pretty annoying and attacked me during the intro speech, but I didn't have much of a problem once I figured out they didn't follow me into water and I got a mount. They are the annoying reason I prefer to start in the ocean biome, but I didn't really consider them broken.
  19. The posts above seem to cover it pretty well. This DLC feels like it is intended for challenge seekers that are willing to accept a certain rule set to further that. I personally think the new features, creatures, engrams, and biomes are interesting and worth my money. However, I wouldn't consider myself the ideal audience and would have preferred a large, connected map and less (or server setting modifiable) restrictions. It just depends on what you want out of the DLC.
  20. I hadn't considered that this might be a bug until I saw this thread. I just assumed it was one of the forced restrictions on Genesis. Not that I liked it and I definitely want a way to turn it off in single player. Preferably something like a server setting.
  21. Agreed. I am looking forward to seeing where it goes.
  22. I heard about this when they started delaying the release the first time and people got upset. Steam counts the play time in the main game, not DLC specifically, so if you spent too much time in the main game your request is denied. I never heard of getting around it, but good luck with Visa.
  23. I am a little late, but I would assume that Genesis will not be very friendly to beginners. Quite frankly no one but the developers will truly know until it is here, but having to guess means a no from me. Then again, I don't play PVP. Everyone has already mentioned the story and if it particularly mattered to you I doubt we would have this same forum discussion. Play them in whatever order you feel comfortable with, but I personally like the feeling of "ramping up" the maps in order. That all being said, there is something special about being apart of a launch and having a new DLC to exp
  24. Also imagine that this customer has already ordered three pizzas from this place that took months and months to cook them, and then though unhappy with the process still decides to order another and gets upset with the same wait and flakiness. At some point it isn't just Dominoes or whatever pizzaria's problem. Even if it is far from ideal, they have done it from the beginning and have shown no intention to stop; yet customers keep ordering with undeserved expectations. I think what bothers the "positive" people is that you don't have to preorder and raging over something seemingly obviou
