How many times have you heard that craptacular old joke? ‘I haven't had a dump since last year,' ‘see you next year,' and variations thereof… it gets damn tedious damn quickly. But I'm using it ironically, so that makes it okay.

Anywho, yes. As we all know, dinosaurs are freaking awesome. They were too much badass for the planet to handle, which is why that asteroid had to come along and take them down. Y'know, before the universe imploded from the sheer magnitude of their awesomeness. This also explains why rodents and such survived; because no-one cares about those hairy little bastards.

There's something captivating about the very idea of these vast extinct lizards. Hence the popularity of Jurassic Park. Recently, survival game Ark: Survival Evolved has been doing well on Steam, and its latest update added quite possibly the coolest thing I've ever seen in game-dom.

Feast your eyes on the Procoptodon, a huge-ass prehistoric kangaroo. In the game, you can tame, befriend and ride dinosaurs, and this thing allows for two riders: One on the back and one in the pouch. I'm not sure about the scientific basis of these guys, but hopping about on/in these bad boys sure looks like a fun way to cruise about Ark's world:
