Video: Let's Play ARK: Survival Evolved

Open the door, get on the floor. Everybody punch a dinosaur.

The latest game to jump on the survival sim bandwagon is ARK: Survival Evolved. Like most survival games, you start with nothing and must rely on crafting and courage to survive. ARK however, has a novel twist; it's full of dinosaurs. Dinosaurs that you can punch! Oh, and also ride. But mostly, if you're anything like me, you'll probably just be punching them.

I sat down with the newly released early access build of the game. Watch this video to see it in action, hear my first impressions and learn exactly where a dinosaurs weak spot is. Hint: it isn't on their heads.

Oh, and apologies in advance for the frame rate and screen tearing - so far ARK isn't very well optimised and this, combined with the server lag, can be a little jarring on the eyes at times. Happy hunting.
