So you've probably seen a few of us playing ARK on teamspeak, so for those wondering, what is ARK?

Aside from playing with some dino poop, It's an early access open world survival sandbox death fest of fun.

Minecraft meets DayZ meets Jurassic Park!

You spawn in a 48sq km map of islands and landmasses filled with Dinosaurs, Stone Age creatures and Possibly dangerous people.

What can you do?

Explore, Die, Join a Tribe, Survive, Build, Battle strange beasts and explore caves, oh and collect poop if you want. You can also tame dinos to ride into battle and take to the skies. Or just marvel at the beauty of the game:

It's up there with a lot of mmo's in time consumption. You could pop on for half an hour but then you wouldn't really get anything done.
The whole point is to level up, gain engrams and learn to build what you need to survive from narcotics to tame dinos up to walled fortresses.
The "Dungeon" side of things begin with caves which have certain artifacts in them which in turn you need to summon "Mob bosses".

There's a lot of satisfaction in taming a dino, naming it and levelling it as you progress through the game.
Like any MMO, resource gathering can be rather time consuming
