This makes me feel like a dinosaur

I read in Empire Online that the latest international trailer for Warcraft: The Beginning is available. Once upon a time (Icons passim) this would have been a big deal for the Bomber, but I think that ship may have sailed.

Listening to him talk to Jonnie in the car when  I am ferrying them to training, Ark: Survival Evolved seems to be the game du jour these days.

ARK Survivors can now experience the one-week-only "Eggcellent Adventure" Event! During this limited-time event, players can collect special "Bunny Eggs" across the ARK, which they can paint or use in special recipes to craft bunny-themed items such as Bunny Ears, or even a Bunny Costume for the Procoptodon! Though Survivors should beware the ferocious Bunny-Dodorex that will roam the ARK throughout the week!
Patch 237 also introduces the much anticipated challenging new Swamp and Snow Caves, which are heavily-geared towards High Level Survivors, containing high-end loot, advanced artifacts, and more clues towards the mysterious Origins of the ARK; keep an eye out for those Snow Cave Yetis!
I must pass this on. I don't think I could live with myself if the ferocious Bunny-Dodorex got hold of them over the Easter holidays.

There are sixty types of dinosaurs in the game. Dinosaurs in the game can be tamed by feeding them food after they have been rendered unconscious. Once a dinosaur is tamed, players have access to the dinosaur's abilities, such as flight or fast underwater movement, as well as its statistics, such as speed, health and damage. When the access to these abilities are gained, players lose control of their personal weapons. When riding the larger dinosaurs, other players can ride on the side with full control of their weapons. They can also be used to carry items, and players can issue offensive and defensive commands to them; for example, a pack of Utahraptors can be assigned to defend the base, or a group of Triceratops can be ordered to attack an enemy's base. The game also features various other species, such as the dodo, saber-toothed cat, woolly mammoth, Meganeura, and Titanomyrma. Every creature in the game has living ecosystems and predator hierarchies.
I will never understand, but I find I am entirely relaxed about that.
