  1. I Wish that the Dino’s Minded / were less 3 year old ish “They never stay put. But that’s probably Just me. They know if they make me up set I’ll just hit ALT+4F
    and an hour after I’ve regained my temper and try to find the right save point and start over again for the 100th time.
    Oh by the way please create a save point option. On a console that’s going to be a must.
    I’m using a top end custom built PC and I still have problems but I’ll live with them.
    I like this game; I unique! To say the least. Better than the rest. But dang I hate falling off my Quezo then falling through the ground the… remembering GHOST, or Fly with get be out. Too much.
    I even got stuck In the side of a Volcano ? So did my Carno.
    Any way ARK great game great work, You should be proud.
    I’m a tad over 60 and still say the above.
