Well this is a interesting one. Ark is a online survival shooter, but with a twist! You are on an island with dinosaurs that you can tame and ride. You start on a beach in underwear and you need to gather materials and craft tools. But as you do this you get exp and after a while you level up(this happens to your dinosaur as well). Then you level up one thing like speed or strength and you get engram points with you unlock new blueprints with. Now to the good part, the dinos. There are actually far more creatures than dinosaurs on the island, from a t-rex to a wholly rhino you can tame dinos from the sea, land and sky. You do this by knocking them out with tranquilizer darts or arrows then feeding them meat or berries. You can use there dinosaurs to ride through the island(it's about 10x10 kilometers across), fly on them or use them to destroy every dino that is smaller then you or is a lower level(are you really going to mess with a bear the size of elephant?). The multiplayer is actually really good, not many hackers and the community is surprisingly nice. There is also a singelplayer mode but you will get bored quick. The best way to enjoy the game is to play on a server with around 50 people and with 4 friends. This will mean that you can handcuff a man on the beach then force him to walk in the snow during a blizzard while you ride on a t-rex behind him. The biggest problem with the game Is the size and performance. The game is 40 gigabytes and unless you have a computer with a net value of one million dollars you will not be able to run this game on max settings(and you will still only get 40 fps). But if you have a computer like that the game looks great with some awesome water. The game is updated about once a month with new dinos and new items. The main reason to continue playing is to just have fun, although there are some major achievements in the game like killing a spider the size of a brontosaurus(you need to find seven artifacts in seven caves) or taming all the dinosaurs. The game also comes with a hunger games mode (survival of the fittest). The game is definitely worth a buy if you have a good computer and friends, if you don't have that them maybe wait one of two years. You can also build a house on a giant bird and stay floating forever and shit on people on the beach(yes there is a shit button)

​Ah Rust, this is the game that I have the most hours on Steam. It is an open world multiplayer survival base builder fps. Now that may seem like a lot but the game blends them all together nicely. You start of naked on a beach with only a torch and a rock, after that you run around collecting resources by hitting bigger rocks and trees with your rock until you can make better tools. After you have done that you hunt, craft more advanced tools or structures, scavenge giant dungeons for more resources. Then you build your house out twig and then you upgrade it to wood or stone(whatever you have). But will only go so smooth on a server with basically zero people online. On the official servers with close to 400 people on a map you will die, by another naked man on the beach, by someone shooting you in the back of the head with a crossbow when you are gathering wood or by a team of Russians with assault rifles and Kevlar armor using c4 to break in to you little base just for kicks. So how do you deal with this? You get a friend to help. Yes playing this game solo is extremely hard so I advise you to get a friend to purchase the game(its 20E). The game runs rather well on most computer although the difference in graphics from fastest to fantastic is rather big, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T306P0S-0do(there is a video comparing the two. The community is quite toxic so is you are one to cry because a eight year old Spanish kid told you friendly only to hit you in the head with a pickaxe then this game is not for you. But what keeps me coming back to this game is the weekly updates. This game is in development, and while that may scare some people of I find it to be the reason I come back to it. Every week there is an update and a community update, the update shows the new things added and the community shows cool videos and artwork the community has made. Every month there is a big update that wipes servers(if they did not wipe weekly or every two weeks) what adds loads of new things like a new way to find new blueprints. The developers are extremely hard working and the head of the team is the same man who created Garry's mod(a successful sandbox game). So in conclusion, Rust is a fun addicting game that will make you rage quit, feel joy and sadness, be scared of the man with the meat cleaver around the corner. The community is 50% asshats, 35% neutral, 10% nice people, 5% kids under 10. I give this game 8/10, 6/10 if you are playing alone. And as a final note, NEVER and I repeat NEVER trust Russians.

​Hello, i will be short. This is going to be a vlog about game reviews(as my account name suggests). I realize that this platform may not be for that but hey, sometimes you need to spice things up. This blog will focus on not so well known games unlike csgo or battlefield because those games already get enough attention. The blog will be updated up to once a day or even once a week, basically whenever I feel like it. Either way I hope you enjoy this blog.
