    So, you're scouring the internet

    I was really just checking out the trailer and saw a massive amount of spoilers in the feed.

    But you're right, I should know by now that everything is easily unlocked, spawned in...etc. for ARK.  The game is basically creative mode for a vast amount of the playerbase so it maybe it all makes sense.  I should know better by now,  or I do know better and was just hoping something was different this time around that would convince me this is worth playing again.

    To each their own.  have fun bois and grils 😎

  2. How is it that I can't look at anything online without having the secrets and adventure to be had in Genesis 2 laid out in front of me, imo ruining the ARK experience I've been waiting for and now wish I could have had... already spoiled by the YouTubers and whoever else on the rest of the internet?  What happened to exploration and the adventure and the excitement of the unknown?

    Also, how are all these people basically finishing the game in a matter of a day or so?

    I've been following ARK since it was only the Island, back before the Carno even, and I haven't been able to bring myself to buy another DLC past Scorched Earth because of how quickly all of this gets ruined.    Even if I hide from the internet, I will easily log into a server and someone will have spawned in end game dinos, all lined up in tie dye rainbow colors playing their idle animation in unison...  surrounded by a full blown tech base with all the bells and whistles and features that were released only days ago.   This just isn't even close to what I expect or expected the ARK experience to be..   breaks my heart.

    What has happened to gaming? 😪

     

    Am I alone here?

    Maybe I am...  I hope everyone is enjoying the new DLC either way. 🙂 Just wanted to give my 2 cents to the community and the devs if they care.

  3. I'm betting they just have a harder time with xbox updates, so the ETA for xbox is just that much more inaccurate.

    And.. I'm pretty sure they know there are going to be bugs with each update, but I can understand where they don't want to release it while there are bugs that are obvious or major or will make people more irritated than not having the update release "on time" (the eta).

    Oh, oh! When exploring the Ark for these notes, I think it'd be interesting if we were often in situations where we would have to rely more on ourselves than on our mounts. Like, our mounts could take us their, but the actual exploration of the notes' resting places had to be done on foot. Having to cleverly use the Grappling Hook, a bit of platforming, and maybe even a few puzzles and traps we'd have to conquer? I mean, imagine peeking around the corner of a ruin's dilapidated archway only to see the main chamber littered with a pack of nesting Raptors. You know there's no way you can take them all out with your trusty sword; you'd be eaten alive! But you quickly form a plan...

    Moments later, a pin is pulled and a canister is flying in a graceful arc right before it explodes in a thick cloud of smoke. The predators are blinded and confused, their calls of distress bouncing off the aged walls. They never hear the clink of metal scrapping stone and never see you sail over their feathered heads with the aid of your Grappling Hook that pulls you into the relative safety of the rafters above. Like everything else, the stone beams haven't weathered the test of time gracefully, but your handy footwork soon has you standing on what remains of the second story foyer and before an imposing door that was probably meant to instill a sense of majesty and awe with its intricate carvings and the fact that your favorite Diplodocus back at camp could fit through it with little difficulty. 

    All it instills in you is a sense of trepidation thanks in no small part to the large claw indentations that riddle the impressive stonework in a vertical pattern, stopping at a massive gap in the ceiling that would easily allow access into whatever room lay behind the door. Turning back isn't an option, however. The shrieks of the Raptors have lost their tone of befuddlement and now resemble the hunting trills and calls that you've become all too familiar with. So you take a shaky breath, one hand resting nervously on the hilt of your weapon, and push...

     

    C'mon, Wildcard, I wanna feel like Indiana Jones/Nathan Drake/Lara Croft. But with swords and crossbows. 

    YES.    i was going to post something, but my search results for "puzzles" led me here. 

    And I had Indiana Jones and Lara Croft in mind.
