I am delighted every time a new Ark: Survival Evolved update turns a dinosaur into a wacky gadget. From Archaeopteryx hang gliders to sauropods you can build mobile fortresses upon, the sandbox survival game has a fascinating and violent Flintstones logic. Procedurally-generated worlds are probably the biggest feature in last week’s update but I’m more interested in its new giant salamander. Can you guess what it’s useful for? Oh, y’know, you can ride it underwater and use it as a mobile oxygen tank by sucking air from bladders inside its head. Of course you can. …

Ah, that’s some folks using the new Archaeopteryx as hang gliders. Just another day in Ark. …

Studio Wildcard describe the latest dino to breech the shores of Ark: Survival Evolved‘s fantastical technoisland as “extremely rare.” Which is just as well, I reckon, because, well, have you seen the size of the blighter? The Titanosaur enters the multiplayer survival ‘em up courtesy of its v243 update, which also extends the existing Snow Biome and introduces the new Redwood Forest area. Pop below to see the new ruinous locale in situ, as well as some moving pictures of the newest debutante. …

The thing I remember most strongly from the Ark: Survival Evolved segment at E3 was the ridiculously massive Titanosaur which you can build on and wondering how long before someone modded that to reference the Discworld arrangement of the space turtle A’Tuin and elephants. Oh, there’s also the introduction of the upcoming Redwood Biome and an explanation of why/how you can fling poop. Now I’ve had time to actually go back and watch the segment properly so here’s the deal – watch from 40:15ish: …
