Ark: Survival Evolved looked almost too good to be true when I reported on it, but is the hyper-ambitious dinosaur game any good? Let’s find out. Tune in below.


Now, a disclaimer: Ark’s servers are packed, and I may not be able to get online today. If that falls through (or after I’ve played Ark for a while), I’m probably gonna stream a little Lego Worlds, a bit of spooky first-person adventure Homesick, and/or top-down F-Zero-esque racer The Next Penelope.

Watch below, and as always, join the Twitch chat unless you’re a jerk with a backed up out-of-order toilet for a mouth.

UPDATE: Stream’s over! You can watch a recording below. Spent the whole time playing Ark, which is pretty fun despite feeling kinda light on content. I went from scared, naked man with a torso the size of the King Kong movie franchise to a “master” of the land who hunted 10-ton dinosaurs with a slingshot. Go me.

The Steam Stream is a marathon of recently released Steam games that airs every Wednesday afternoon, er, most of the time. The goal? To help you sift through the ceaseless avalanche that is Steam’s “new releases” section in a quick, easily digestible fashion. If you hate the unbridled havoc of moving pictures and prefer slow, easy-going words, fear not: each of these games will also get brief write-ups that will explain why you should (or shouldn’t) care about them.
