New survival game just went early access with VR support.

Might be something to look into or watch.

One of my friends is playing this.  It's RUST with dinosaurs.  Looks pretty neat.

I really hope FA starts playing this game.  It's just incredible.  It reminds me so much of darkfall and rust.  But the dinos are outstanding. 

I've sunk about 40+ hours into this game this past week.  It's just so much frickin fun.

I'd start playing it with you, but of course that would start the countdown timer to you disappearing from the game!

I just keep hearing the optimization of the game is pretty bad still. I want it to be smooth enough to play on the Rift!

LOL!  You aren't wrong!

I still need to try out New Rust.  My friend gifted me ARK and I just can't help thinking that this game is SO MUCH more feature complete than RUST. 

It's just pretty neat.  Either way, if you guys do pick it up, let me know.  We're playing on the "Official 17" server.  I've spent the last week dismantling an entire asshole tribe from the inside.  No kidding some of the best fun ever.  I've never been a griefer but these guys were total jerks and had it coming.  So much fun. 

It doesn't have any of the fun alliance and political stuff that darkfall had but it doesn't have any of the lame grind either.  There's no skill tree or anything, it's exactly RUST except you do gain levels and with each level you put points into your attributes.  How long you can hold your breath under water, how often you need to eat or drink, how fast you can run, how hard you melee attack, how much health you have, etc.  As you level you unlock crafting recipes as well. 

I think it's pretty well polished so far.  UI still needs work.  There's an official nvidia driver update coming that's supposed to optimize even more.

Just fun times though.
