This game uses 4GB of RAM.

LOL it needs some serious, serious optimization.

Jumped into single player and decided to punch a tree for some thatch and wood. Accidentally gave a Triceratops a right hook as he was walking by.

Ended up knocking him the gently caress out somehow. I took his meat and hide with my bare hands.

Should probably password the goon server given how many people are trying to join any public server and crashing them.

Will try and sort server in 4-5 hours, if no one else will set up one by that time
Honestly hoping for some sort of documentation, tried everything at this point, it just leaks ram and then crashes

The devs are on the case and hopefully will unfuck the server software soon.

When I first saw the trailer for Stomping Land, I knew I wanted that game. Then it turned out to be a lie. Then this game appears and seems to be everything Stomping Land claimed to be plus a million.

- 20 fps no matter what i set graphics to and the game looks like absolute unplayable rear end on low because you can't disable post-processing or shadows
- you can't climb up hills

- every server is full and i randomly disconnect from a server if i actually manage to join it, and i can't host one
- volume settings don't do anything on the main menu???

well i'm having fun but i hope they fix their game this week

Yeah these guys seem to be on the ball.

A guy who hangs out with me and my buddies on Teamspeak had been gone for a long time, popped up recently. He apparently was working on this game in a technical art position. You can thank him for the quick fix of starting singleplayer with rocket launchers and grenades.

Yeah, the streamers from yesterday said the devs had released something like 9 patches during that single 24-hour period getting read for Early Access.

VIDEO GAME MODIFICATION IS TOTALLY THE SAME THING AS A FEMALE'S BODY AND CLONING SAID MODIFICATION IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS RAPE, GUYS!!!!!!!

If you have trouble loading SP, just give it ten or fifteen minutes to do whatever the gently caress its optimized rear end has to do. It'll load eventually.

I killed a Dodo, tried to drag the body closer to my fire, and then the body began to orbit my character at high speeds.

Also heard in Mumble:

"I think I'm going to drown. Oh, there's something swimming toward me! I think I'm going to die before it gets here, though..."

*a moment later*

"It was a shark."

It's all serverside. Which will be crappy for fps elements but significantly harder to hack as anything that the server decides doesn't make any drat sense it ignores.

Honestly this is the first early acces survival game that feels finished. I'll check it out again in 4-5 weeks once some optimization has taken place, but it's great so far.

It offends me that you can only punch dino faces. It seems like hitting them from any other angle does no damage. Maybe certain hitboxes, like on Dilos and the big turtles, are hosed up.

Ancient Aliens: Closer Encounters

Just got it and had to turn off motion blur. I can deal with choppy or low frame rate, but the blur is nauseating. Other than that looks pretty nice.

Should be nice once they get the server side junk fixed.

honestly I can see a ton of potential. Game needs a ton of optimizing, but I met 3 random guys on an official server, ended up killing some dinos and made a tribe, just built a bed that acts as a spawn point. Had a seriously fun few hours.

This game seems neat in that unlike most survival games, it doesn't put in a bunch of poo poo to make things harder for the sake of being harder. I like that there is a clan grouping system that helps control spawns

You can't knock what's real, you know what im sayin?

I spent most of my time sneaking around at night with a spear, looking for campfires, and then murdering all the inhabitants of said campfires when they had their backs turned or were doing something and took all their poo poo. Was pretty fun.

Was somebody saying that Lirik guy was a professional streamer?

I've only been watching him for about 5 minute so far, but he already comes off as a giant rear end in a top hat.

That is what "Professional" streamers are.

The Requirements to go pro are:

- Be bad at all video games
- Be stupid bad at video games
- Act like a child
- Talk about topics you have no loving clue about
