ARK: Survival Evolved review snippet Does ARK: Survival Evolved get dinosaurs right?
It's a fun sandbox game and the mod community really shines in providing new way to play. The devs seem to care but also are torn in what they want to provide. The PvP system is not up to the competition it faces. The mix of the sandbox and the PvP is not well balanced and the demands of PvP fight make it weak compared to other competitive play games. That said, this could be a much better game if they focused on PvE/Coop. It would be a stand out product there with some design improvements.

Some developers are struggling with Steam refundsSome developers are struggling with Steam refunds

It's discouraging to hear people lump all people involved in this discussion into groups, like indies, devs or users. The reality is that there is a problem but the new Steam solution didn't solve the problem, it just changed the argument. Steam needs a better system to provide the customer with a way to get legitimate refunds. It also needs a system to ensure devs don't simply bear the brunt of abusive consumers.


Consumers are getting very used to Free games that aren't free for those doing the work. To those that think the game industry is the only industry that has refund issues; consider how many people get refunds for watching movies they didn't like and often that will cost you $12 or more dollars. No, users aren't picked on in this industry any more than any other, we've just developed some lopsided expectations.


The refund system on Steam is a step, but it's not a solution. Steam need to do more work as does the game industry as a whole to improve QA and customer satisfaction.
