Dinosaurs, as we all know damn well, are nature's ultimate badasses. As a little urchin, I was completely obsessed with these mysterious, gigantic goddamn killing machines from long ago. I'm sure a lot of you were too; judging by the success of Jurassic World.
It's a guy thing, I think. We like our beer cold, our cars fast, our movies action-heavy, our ladies in easy-ogle format in the pages of Egotastic! and our animals huge and toothy. Just look at these damn things. Even the herbivores could crush your house with their ‘nads.
Frankly, I'm surprised a mere trifle like taking an apocalyptic meteor right to the face was enough to stop them. But in the video game world, they haven't fared so well.
How many good dinosaur games can you name? Not freaking many, that's how many. Remember Jurassic Park for the Genesis? Well, I do, and it looked like this:
Back this summer, though, something pretty darn sexy hit Steam in the shape of Ark: Survival Evolved. This free-roamy survival game sees you pit your wits against our dino-buddies, as a lone dude in a prehistoric landscape. You could tame the creatures, ride them, fight other players on raptor-back… it was an all-round good time. One that Xbox gamers can now get themselves a slice of.
Ark hits Xbox One tomorrow, and you may want to get involved after seeing this trailer of it in action:
