I Finally Bought 'Ark: Survival Evolved' On Xbox One, And I Want A Refund

I’ve never quite understood the whole early access thing. I’ll play the thing once it’s done, I figure, and I certainly won’t pay for it until that point. I get it from a developer perspective: it helps fund development, provides constant testing and all that, but it’s just never appealed to me all that much from a payer perspective. Ark: Survival Evolved, however, has piqued my interest for a little while, and I figured I’d give it a shot now that it was out on Xbox One. In case you didn’t get the gist from the headline, it didn’t go all that well.

Wow Forbes really hate the X1 don't they always see nonsensical negative articles like this from them. Blacklisted for me not going to give a site like this clicks

thrust1535d ago

Forbes is really bad only d i c k s read it!

christocolus1535d ago

Forbes is basically free for all. Anybody can write an opinion piece and get it up on that site.

Glad forbes is speaking up instead of doing PR for MS.

Dark_Crow1535d ago

This is an unfinished game. They're not speaking up. They're essentially complaining about their own stupidity.

RobLoPR1535d ago

Plus before you buy it you agree with the terms and it says that its in an unfinished state and it may even be unplayable at times so... Maybe some people should read before clicking YES

Aenea1535d ago

Ahh, no, I believe they just hate consoles or something.

Why? Because I have the feeling they hate the PS4 too, way too many negative articles. The PS4 is my main gaming platform so it's something I tend to see easier, yours is probably the X1 and you notice the X1 negative stuff easier.

They are just negative a-holes!

Ark isn't an XBO exclusive though so I don't really follow your logic...considering it will hit on all platforms & that it is meant to be a VR title, I'd say Sony actually has more riding on this title than any other platform as its meant to be something to bolster not only their consoles but their big new peripheral push.

Could be the guy just doesn't enjoy the game. People place different importance on different things, first we see gamers say resolution doesn't matter & its all about the stable frame rate, now we hear people saying in regards to this game that frame rate doesn't matter, performance doesn't matter & visuals don't matter, it is now all about the nebulous "fun factor". Ultimately all that matters to a gamer is his own personal experience, as it should be...but journos need to also work in absolutes, and bad performance is something that should be pointed out, doubly so if gamers are potentially dropping money on something. Forbes is definitely a pretty subpar site especially in terms of gaming, but in this instance the opinion is one worth putting out there for potential buyers on XBO & PC and as a warning for potential future buyers to check on the game's reception on release.

Lol he wants a refund. I use the game as a good excuse to go buy a second xbox one for a dedicated server and I have been having a blast. Hate the latest patch that nerfed melee to nothing on my Dinos. But breeding some new ones with higher stats to compensate. The game is fun. And runs amazing for an alpha compared to other alphas I have played.

RobLoPR1535d ago (Edited 1535d ago )

Same here second XB1 is on its way maybe the Elite and use my Day1 as a server. I suggested to @jointheark on tweeter that many of us have a spare PC or a Laptop but few have a spare XB1, that maybe they can allow us to use a PC to use as a Dedicated server snd that way relieve their servers bit i didnt get an answer....

I actually saw a response to that question in one of the ark digests or something, and they said they are working on it but no promises.

jb2271535d ago

Really? the suggestion should be made to purchase a second console in order to play one game? A lot wrong w/ that idea. If games need a second console to run properly, someone needs to take a second look at their games, or consoles should start releasing in pairs.

ASSASSYN1535d ago

You literally have no idea what we are talking about. Nor what you are talking about.

SUCKxITxEZ1532d ago

Lol this guy really wanted to rant about something. Listen you tool, you don't need a second Xbox to do anything but host your own server. If you wanted your own server for battlefield 4 you would need to rent one from a company that rents out battlefield servers on Xbox. This feature let's you run your own for free, if you have the hardware to do so. It's a very consumer friendly feature.

You purchased a game that is ADVERTISED AS BEING IN AN INCOMPLETE TEST STATE & you want a refund? BOO FUKING HOO!!!

gamer11381535d ago

Sounds like he needs to reinstall it. Not beards of anyone else having his progress bug. Did he contact anyone or just demand a refund straight away?
