ARK: Survival Evolved pits you against dinosaurs and humans

The part of my brain that likes dinosaurs will always be a kid. As a result, I’m unreasonably excited about ARK: Survival Evolved.

New indie developer Studio Wildcard announced this week that it is working on a dinosaur-infused survival game that will launch into Steam Early Access in just a few weeks.

There’s a bit of Rust in ARK, as players awaken naked and confused on an island and have to fend for themselves from there to create shelter, obtain food, and improve technology. Dinosaurs aren’t just dangerous predators, though. They can be tamed and even ridden, as shown in the trailer.

There will be, according to the announcement, 60 different dinosaurs including many of the basics like Pterodactyls, Velociraptors, Tyrannosaurus Rex, and Brontosaurus. Players will be able to build structures and compounds in addition to the usual weapons. The trailer starts with bows and spears, but elements like pistols, rifles, and even floating technology pop up throughout the trailer. The characters each appear to have some sort of device in their arm, in line with the question in the press release about ARK’s “true purpose.”

Then there’s the dragon…

The studio, led by Jesse Rapczak (former technical art director at Microsoft Game Studios) is building the game in Unreal Engine 4 for a variety of platforms, including consoles. It’s currently set to hit PC via Steam Early Access on June 2, but is in development for Linux, Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

When it launches, I look forward to tons of people pointing out how unrealistic the game is even though they’re riding on a triceratops’ back wielding a shotgun while they say it.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

¿Alguna vez has visto un ornitorrinco? Es probablemente el animal más extraño que jamás encuentres. Es un mamífero de sangre caliente, sin embargo, pone huevos. Está cubierto con la piel, pero se divierte un pico de pato. Y sus pies palmeados también parecen má…

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
