Ark: Survival Evolved Lets You Live Out Your Jurassic Park Dreams (And Nightmares)

Gaming has given us all sorts of experiences, but there is something magical about facing off against a tyrannosaurus rex with only spears and your wits. Ark: Survival Evolved is offering that kind of experience, along with dinosaur taming and riding, crafting, and a brutal environment to survive.

The pitch for Ark sounds like a twist on Bohemia Interactive’s DayZ. You wake up naked and afraid on an island, and you’ll need to find clothing, food, and shelter to survive. Oh, and then there’s that little dinosaur problem we mentioned.

Capcom takes us on a gameplay tour of Vergil's sword-swinging move set from Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition.

Dante's brother Vergil made his playable debut in Devil May Cry 3, and Capcom is updating the fierce yet disciplined warrior for his return in the special HD update of Devil May Cry 4. Vergil returns with many of his slicing and dicing capabilities from DMC 3, along with a new sword throw attack that allows him to teleport long distances towards enemies as in Ninja Theory's DmC. One exciting new feature for Vergil is the concentration gauge, which allows patient and nimble players with increased attack range and power.

The enhanced edition also features post-process effects like bokeh depth of field (a photographic technique for artistic blurring of parts of the image not in-focus) and volumetric clouds that change how the skies look, especially during dawn and dusk.

The game will run at 1080p and 30 frames-per-second when it arrives on August 21. Deep Silver has tagged the game with a $39.99 price point, which includes the Adventure Grab, Fog Island, and Uprising of the Little Guys DLC packs.
