about X hours ago from

When Divinity: Original Sin arrived on PC last year, it was lauded for its versatility. Using elements in combination allows players to create unique solutions to the game’s problems (both in and out of combat).

Today we get a chance to see some of the options available when fighting the game’s monsters. Fire spells can ignite explosive barrels or oil on the ground. Ice can make for slippery conditions. And steam and lightning can be used in combination to exorcise ghosts.

Dodging Dinos, Defecating, and Dying

Dodging Dinos, Defecating, and Dying

In my first hours playing Ark: Survival Evolved, I woke up half-naked and shivering in the waters of a mangrove swamp. I scurried to dry land to escape a primeval crocodile, only to plummet to my death off a ridge shortly afterwards. In a new life, I waded into the ocean to ward off heat stroke, angered a nasty fish, and drowned as I kicked frantically towards shore. Giant mosquitoes gorging on a titanic boa carcass swarmed around and killed me in a blitz of stinging. Respawning again, I crafted a primitive pickaxe, hoping to finally garner some protection. Right away, a giant scorpion stabbed me full of paralyzing toxins. Death followed quickly.

Each of these embarrassing downfalls taught me what it takes to stay alive in Studio Wildcard’s in-development dinosaur sandbox. Many others have gone through a similar crash course since June, when Ark: Survival Evolved entered Early Access on Steam. Take the exhaustive resource management systems from games like DayZ, H1Z1, and The Forest and add the ability to ride into battle on a Tyrannosaurus Rex, and the appeal becomes obvious.
