  1. And it's a real shame, because it could have been eight or higher if the default settings weren't so grindy. That seems to be the one universal hang-up for pretty much everyone who gives ARK a review...

    They said flyers cannot be transferred in for lore reasons.

    With so much verticallity in the map pillaring may not be a practical option.

    Basically, Jeremy is really really sick (stomach bug), and almost everyone else is at PAX. That's the main reason for the delay.

    That would be so funny...
  6. Why did you support the game in Early Access?

    Ark began as a dinosaur game, that's what drew me in. However the Sci-Fi undertones were always there. The questions of where am I? What is this implant? What are the Obelisks? They were intriguing. When they were finally answered, in oneol of the most satisfying twists in modern fiction I might add, I realized that yes, ARK is a dino game, but it is so much more than that also. The idea of these Arks makes the potential for exploration and adventure nearly limitless. If I want my dinos they will always be there, if I want to step beyond that... I can. Ark is an evolving experience. And it is an impressive and beautiful one to boot.

    Technically it is very high quality and that is why people get poor performance. The fact is they have done a lot of optimization, I mean a ton. What is holding this game back at this point is the hardware available to consumers, not poor design on the part of Wildcard. No one seems to see that. They still think that the issue is it being unoptimized and WC being lazy and indifferent. Once upon a time optimization was an issue. No more. Evidence of this is readily available. XBOX One X for example can run the game at 60 FPS settings equivalent to PC High. God tier PCs run this game like greased lightning. Hardware is the problem now, and we live in an economic climate where the average gamer cannot afford God-tier hardware. Thus they take their frustrations out on the game creators. A fruitless endeavor if ever there was one.

    That would have a significant effect. But I am not certain how much. And plus whatever dinos happen to spawn while you're doing your boss battles would then have level increments of 4 instead of 5.

    This is on Xbox One?

    Well if we go by "likes" which I'll admit is a bit silly, the reveal for Aberration has about three times the popularity of Dragonpunk. I mean, I'm not gonna crusade against it, but it's nothing more than a mediocre mod made by game industry wannabes. You can practically smell the desperation. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that, I'm kind of the same way. But I'm not going to pretend my skills are up to par either. Dragonpunk looks like a mishmash full of re-textures and 2002 quality baddies. Heck, the entire trailer was just them panning the camera around looking at things. Aberration on the other hand looks extremely professional (because it is), adds enormous amounts of content and playability, dozens of new mechanics from the looks of it, and continues the story in a new and exciting way that nobody was expecting... Those are the marks of quality.

    Maybe it's fixed now, but it never worked for me.

    The best I've ever gotten was 50K HP with about 1k% damage. I also never took them out to fight wilds, their purpose was to fight bosses, and for that purpose they were neither over nor under powered. I lost five of them when I fought the Alpha Dragon.

    I understand the sentiment, but ultimately the game isn't about fighting wild dinos, it's about the end game, and to tackle endgame on difficulty 5 you just about need SP Settings.

    Please definite your terms, I am throughly confused.
