hello and welcome back to another video today I'm going to be playing something a little different it's not an MMO but it's an open world survival game called Ark survival evolved which is by to play on Steam for around 20 pounds so 30 dollars or something also in this video I'm going to be doing a giveaway for this hat which the guys at WASD apparel were nice enough to give me to give away to one of you guys so go check them out if you're interested in some gaming related merch I'll put a link in the
00:29
description below so let's get into it so I'm going to start off by doing a local game just so I can learn how to actually play the thing here you have a bunch of options such as difficulty level and a bunch of other things I'm just going to keep it as the default settings and play single-player okay so logging in for the first time this is the character select screen we're gonna sort out our character give him a name and then choose a spawn point that's one ugly guy look at my six-pack what the fuck of we just made okay
01:00
everyone meet Bob as you can see he's been working out he's got those toned abs he's got fucking huge bottom half smallest head smallest arms Bob's our sexy man I think we'll just go over the standard male unfortunately it won't let's choose a hair style so rip we'll just go of this one and we'll call him lazy peon and we'll create a new survivor boom okay damn graphics look pretty nice okay so there's a third person and a first
01:31
person mode some big tower like structure over there so as with most survival games I'm guessing the first thing we need to do is punch trees and get wood and stuff that hurts I think ease the interact button so when we go near this plant there's a little hand that comes up at the side so I think that means you can interact with it level one dodo boys I think we should punch this thing to death fucking die dodo there is if I punch the dodo we seem to get meat I feel safe out in this
02:02
open area because I can see what's around me exploration are nice we got some wood sweet so if we open up our inventory go to crafter balls I think we can make a stone here and we leveled up nice so it's given us some things that we can level up health stamina oxygen food water height melee damage movement speed fortitude or crafting speed melee damage seems like the one that would make the most sense okay so here we get Engram points we have eight to spend eat this costs EP 3 EP 3 so that's the cost of
02:34
learning these different things I'm going to get hatchet and a spear that would make the most sense as a new player guess there's really useful for Spears and stuff really that big fucking boulder just destroyed itself okay so we've been given a saddle so apparently you can ride dinosaurs in this game which sounds really fucking cool okay this hatch is giving me lots of wood oh I see so I can eat these berries and it puts my food up here to the bottom right hand side it's got different little markers I'm guessing
03:06
the top one is your level the next one's probably weight of your inventory next one looks like hydration food energy energy and health it seems like once you level up you get these Engram points and you can learn it to unlock new recipes so I guess we level up somehow guessing by killing things fucking missed died died oh wow do you even spear bro have to say it's a beautiful looking game I'm only playing on medium graphics so this one maxed out
03:37
settings would look in Seine really makes me want to get a better graphics card I think we should get our guys some clothes level 4 I think we can take him fuck we killed him that was easy he's not in the best shape is he now he looks more like a survivor Oh what you can whistle I think gathering actually levels you up this is such a cool idea for a game dinosaur survival I love it there we go that's better look at that moonlight fucking will love us there I am oh oh my god it's got a
04:14
fucking spear sticking out within oh that's brutal dude oh die I just need to put him out of his misery oh I think we're gonna lose this battle I'm close to dying okay I've got two more Spears ready right in the head fucking hell this thing's invincible how many fucking Spears does this dinosaur wanna take four four Spears to the head Wow now he's got trees going through him and
04:46
he's still alive give her feces what can you do with this use human feces what the fuck dude you consumed human feces why would he eat his own shit why is that even an option die scary mobs okay what love was this carnival well done level 9 fuck that a doorframe that's roof the door there we go that's a humble abode awesome we're safe so the main problem I have with this map is it doesn't
05:19
actually tell you where you are okay it doesn't see what's in a room I think what we're gonna have to do is extend this building and make it a lot bigger we'll make it a four by four level to think we can kill him maybe not you seem to need to gather a hell of a lot of fiber to make a lot of these structures face that wall there place the door there and that's our little home there is that's a better home turn the lights on and we can get some sleep what's the point in having a sleeping bag if it's not used for sleeping if 9
05:51
spears don't take this thing down I don't know what will three four come on five cheeky jab cheeky job cheeky job okay didn't like that he's now busted free haha die motherfucker oh my god we did it damn that took some time right in the head it will die yes well right in the eye that couldn't have been a more perfect it kept moving that freaked me
06:23
the fuck out framerate drops a lot when it's raining it's Fisher pretty good to kill fuck I'm injured I got me he got me I'm fucked fuck rip respawn as sleeping bag so if you die in this game you kind of start all over you keep your level you keep every crafting material that you've learned we need to obviously gather everything again make clothes and all that good stuff so dying is kind of punishing right through the fucking I how is he not dead oh shit attacking me
06:55
wasn't prime not prepared I'm not prepared for a fucking flying monster attacking me run didn't I expect that oh I killed it the lighting in this game is just so beautiful Phil's are the world's alive level 3 will take him I spat acid at me we got him though okay my person just loves to randomly shit all over the place that's exactly what I need quickly dying from starvation oh sweet
07:25
now we've got some cooked meats big red dinosaur over there not sure that is haven't seen one of those before oh that's fucking scary Wow pretty sure these are herbivores ah it's fucking after me dude run away oh my god it's still coming after me the bed of dreams I bet this game gets so fun once you get to a high level so you just take a massive crap oh fuck fuck they just hit me to half
08:00
health and one here fuck that no no way no no no feels like the further you go on in this game the more dangerous it becomes so once I'm level 10 I unlock a bunch more stuff ah fucking spider Oh what the fuck are these spiders try romantic drone oh my god fuck up t-rex fuck up dude get my house shut the door shut the fucking door shut the front door are we
08:34
safe he's knocking my fucking house down we're going to demolish this wall and we go to fucking run we're going to run so fast we're going to run for days why won't he leave the area that's so annoying when you put a house down and fucking t-rex goes nearer you can't kill the thing maybe I need to build a second house this t-rex really did a lot of damage to my house fuck of all the times for it to go foggy now is probably the worst time lots of
09:08
meat from that fish kind of kite him out of range can't quite get me now ah ha ha Porter oh you're too slow to defend your friend I was feel bad for those guys I've gone from being the prey to being the predator oh noes whoa he knocks me off a cliff oh my god I'm fucked yes we did it level 10 now I can unlock a lot more things I've got lots of points to spend okay so with
09:38
these beds you can fast travel between them so it's a good ideas have different buildings and different locations to help you farm easier and explore more okay so about two or three hours ago I tamed this parasol and I thought I'd lost it because he was still on the floor sedated and it was still had the timing bar going up and then some t-rex killed me so I gave up on him come over here and apparently he's tamed and I own him so this guy is just stood around for about two hours waiting for me to put a
10:10
saddle on him bless him what is with the shark so this fish just decided to swim over here and get myself stuck on these sticks suicide fish but what's that ah ah some flying spider beetle thing Oh - spooky dude - spooky I've been poisoned it's not looking good my of energy a mouse print no fucking army of
10:44
spiders on me guarding my stuff take all so this is what happens with these dinosaurs if you kill one and their friends near the friend will help out so these flying winged monsters here which killed me earlier they're really annoying because if you kill a dinosaur near them then they'll go and eat all the meat off its you can't farm it for hides so you need to farm quick I couldn't get anything off those two dinosaur they killed okay let's ride the parasol yes we did it boys we've got a
11:14
dinosaur I've got a Dino pets Harold the parasol and inside Harold you can also store things which is great it must be no no no give daddy a kiss how old give daddy a kiss there you go killing dinosaurs seems to be really good XP I think it's actually the best XP oh yes that's a great shot fucking got in wow this is the big spiking wall
11:46
Harold I know it's a female leave it alone right to the face Harold Frank you look at Harold go boys Harold saved us I'm almost dead literally starving right now come on Harold no don't you hurt my Harold you leave my Harold alone it's not looking good for Harold come on Harold me and you no Harold Zoid boys no rest in peace Harold
12:17
you're a brave soldier you fought valiantly you protected me even when I didn't ask you to although I know you deserve a proper burial it would be a shame to waste your fight parasol's are fucking useless in combat when you're out in the wild you want a fresh spear directly into your praise head like so on the occasion where your prey does not die from a spear to the head you must ruthlessly hunt it down and
12:47
finish him off if your prey escapes you're gonna have a bad time okay a second dinosaur we're going to call him Leroy I can't believe that just came out of your arse Leroy it's a fucking Boulder okay guys if you made it this far into the video and you want to leave a comment for a chance to win this hat leave a comment with the word bananas in pyjamas in it and you will have a chance of winning this and I'll send it to you and get in contact and stuff okay I think one thing you could possibly say about this game as it starts to feel a
13:18
little bit grindy whilst you're doing certain things and farming resources but it's something you expect in a survival game and it hasn't really bothered me too much I'm guessing at later levels once you're getting close to level 60 I'm guessing it probably gets really grindy fuck this one fuck is this dinosaur dude I can't even I run it killed by a raptor level 25 great I guess is a good thing that you can't sleep in this game so just make it feel
13:52
like it more of a survival game it feels more intense you don't really look forward to nighttime come on there we go knocked him out brilliant location there we go tame de paris or so I've got Leroy who's just leveled up to level 3 he's gonna be my caravan I'm just gonna store all of my stuff in him because he has mad amounts of inventory space and I've also got Gordon he's gonna be my mount just
14:23
to get me from A to B he's gonna follow me into combat and be my trusty steed sweet and now we're level 30 Wow you can whistle to command a dinosaur perfect awesome we did it boys and I don't have to worry about Leroy getting killed I love it when dinosaurs get trapped in a tree it's just an easy kill ah random flying things fucking hell been poisoned we killed it Thank You Gordon
14:54
go ahead Gordon there's lots of them ok awesome level 15 ok I definitely want a bow and I definitely want a stone arrow that's gonna make combat so much easier I also want a dinosaur gateway taming dinosaurs in this game isn't as difficult as you may think all you really do is you get the saddle for it by unlocking it with your Engram points and then you basically beat the dinosaur to death with your fists and knock it out then you feed it this berry called the narco very which keeps it
15:26
unconscious then you feed it as much as what it eats as you can so for a carnivore you feed it lots of raw meat and that's how you basically tame dinosaurs it's a bit of a nightmare at nighttime though so I'd always recommend get your taming done in the daytime because right now I don't know what predators are abouts on it does sit here and defend this guy ok Henry Henry boys yes Henry your head mister thing oh wow
15:57
wow that was brutal what the fuck is that hello that scared the crap out of me chocolate yes not nope nope no no no no no no no no and then a known and a known and a no no no no no no no no no no no I'm tired great time to be tired bro no nope okay don't fuck with those guys don't drag my own body well this is weird the
16:32
fucking why I feel as though my vagina really shows when I play this game there is boom put the large storage box over here wow you can store so many things in here this is gonna make my life so much easier when farming ok guys I finally finished building my base now it's time for me to give you the Grand Tour so out the front I've got lots of spikes to protect myself against any random carnivores that may try to get in this
17:03
is the front entrance huge fucking dinosaur gate it takes a lot of resources to build this thing coming here I've got my free dinosaurs I've got Henry I've got Leroy and mr. Gordon Gordon's the one I usually use just to run around and inside here this is my little safe house use my bed to fast travel there's my fire lots of torches around here and here is my big storage box so I no longer have to store any of my stuff
17:35
inside the dinosaurs so that's great I've also managed to get myself some new clothes and a new weapon in the form of a bow and arrow so I'm going to jump on a dinosaur go out and explore a little bit more fucking hell that is so much more efficient fuck is this thing access inventory oh wow this thing has loads of supplies in it have a feel and this is where most of the carnivores hang out I'm really curious to see what this is this area seems to be way more populated
18:07
with dinosaurs I'll shit wow those flies actually killed the Raptor what the fuck okay so you need to get lots of artifacts and random things and then you can summon a brood mother whatever that is I wonder if we can survive Gordon come on no no always made it got a new tank okay guys I feel like I finally played enough Ark survival evolved to have a decent enough first impressions of the game I think my characters at level 18 now so he's close to level 20
18:38
and I've put in quite a lot of hours into this one compared to some of my other first impressions so what we're going to do now is talk about whether or not this games worth playing first we'll talk about the pros the good things and then we'll talk about the cons the bad things and then you can just decide if it's a game for you okay so first we're going to talk about the pros the game looks absolutely stunning I've only been playing the game on medium graphics because my computer can't handle recording and playing it on anything higher at the same time I really wish I had a better graphics card
19:09
so I could play this game on Ultra even a medium it still looks really nice so great graphical fidelity also the user interface is very easy to learn and it's very user friendly for beginners it really didn't take me long to learn how to navigate the interface the game actually feels challenging in PvE especially at lower levels which is something that some other survival games don't really have there's been times where I've died over and over again to certain dinosaurs I've got frustrated but I've kind of got through it and it
19:40
fit it feels like a really tense survival game which is what I've been looking for unlocking recipes in this game feels really rewarding there's also a hell of a lot of things you can actually build and craft and every time you level up and get closer to unlocking more recipes it does feel really exciting the pacing of the leveling feels nice it's not too fast not too slow and when you do level up you have stat points to spend and it does feel really rewarding taming and riding dinosaurs is a lot of fun taming a dinosaur feels like it's a bit of a challenge at times because you need to run after the
20:11
thing track it down punch it in the face and knock it out and also have enough berries and stuff to kind of keep it sedated or whatever the dinosaur eats then you've also got to protect that dinosaur from predators that are going to take advantage of an unconscious prey so that's something I've enjoyed the world in this game feels huge and just exploring this vast prehistoric environment feels like a lot of fun progressing your character and building your base feels really addictive well it has to me anyway there's been times where I've just totally lost track of time because they keep saying to myself I'll just build
20:42
one more thing before I log off it feels like a real survival game and you really have to plan out your next move at times now for the Cotten's this game has really high system requirements and I don't think you'll be able to run it very well if you have a low-end PC I have a mid to high-end PC with a 970 graphics card and I really felt the need to upgrade after playing this game the game doesn't have any inbuilt tutorials so as a new player there's a good chance you're going to want to look online for guides and things just help you get started because otherwise you're just
21:13
going to be running around clueless as to what to do it can get really frustrating at times once you've been out farming and then you come across a raptor or a t-rex and they'll just chase you and outrun you and kill you over and over again you'll try and go back to where you died to pick up everything from your inventory but the monster doesn't seem to roam away for a long time so you're going to have a real frustrating time trying to recover those items there's been a few times where I've just abandoned my body and just made a house somewhere else the in-game map doesn't feel very helpful and I've
21:45
hardly even used it because it doesn't tell you where you are on the map so unless you've got a few points of reference then you're going to have a really hard time understanding the map it hasn't been very helpful to me at all I'm not really sure if this is a con but this game's very open world and sandbox you really need to use your imagination and set your own goals and objectives because the game doesn't do it for you some people won't like that but I myself really enjoy that aspect of the game overall Ark is easily the best survival game I've ever played and I've had a hell of a lot of fun playing it whilst
22:16
making this video I'm definitely going to keep playing Ark after this videos been released and see if I can get to the level 63 ok guys that's it for this video I hope you enjoyed if you did leave a comment below telling me what you think and also let me know what other games you want me play in the future of this series you take it easy and I'll see you again really soon Cheers leave it all down yeah this is getting way more challenging it's awesome I like it Oh mum mum yeah
22:46
save me mum thing Gigi oh look we're going to the sewers again
