    If the reviews note it's relatively stable and bug-free (relatively, not purely), I may be jumping in as the game seems to contain a lot of novel and varied content to explore.

    It does, I'll give it that.  :)

    I don't go for pirate games either, but it's different enough to pique my interest somewhat and it's cheap enough to indulge a whim.  If it keeps me occupied over the Christmas holidays (assuming it comes out!) I will consider it money well spent.

     No idea yet, have to wait a bit post launch to join so I can see which clans are dominating. 

    Wait, you didn't think I wanted to actually help in taking everything over did you?  

    Far too much work, I'll wait until after most of the heavy lifting is done, then jump in at the last minute and take credit like I was there from the beginning.

    There are certainly aspects of Ark in the game..... some animal reskins, crafting, similiar mechanics, etc.  They have polished things a bit better.. I haven't been able to explore the maps like i wanted to yet.

    Well the good news is as I've never played ARK perhaps I'll finally get a chance to.

    I wonder if eventually they offer a "dinosaur " themed DLC pack? 

    Probably,  they could do a bit of reskining and call it "Sea Monsters of the Deep."

    Don't laugh, it is probably in the plan somewhere.

    It is planned to release about 1.5 years before the base game is finished.  That's how Wildcard rolls.

    Exactly my thought on it, you just know there will be one or more DLC packs "sold" before the game's formal launch.

    It worked well before, no reason to vary from a successful monetization model.

    I don't understand the buying behaviors of modern gamers, (baffles me actually) but I'm getting pretty good at reading what paths some developers will take to market their products.

    Apparently Wildcard apologized after that release, but if we're being technical, Wildcard isn't actually developing Atlas, as they changed their studio name for seemingly no reason ala Sergei Titov.

    I dislike that move, but mostly because we've seen it used before to trick gamers into thinking the studio's new title isn't being developed by the same folks as the previous title for nefarious reasons.

    You don't understand their buying behaviors? It goes like this, say you're a Fallout fan and Bethesda releases... you see where I'm going with this? I think the baffling part, to me anyway, is how our feelings about two different games can be so diametrically opposed and how that causes us to act so differently to two different titles that aren't all that different. It happens all the time with MMOs. They're all essentially the same gameplay loop, with a few mechanical variations, but we try and paint them as radically different from one another.

    I see more differences than similarities in the current examples, at least in terms of degree.

    Fans of ARK, you're joking yes? At least as compared to Bethesda with a long history of titles people have have enjoyed.

    Wait, there's more, Fallout 76, for better or worse, a "released" game, (perhaps it shouldn't have been) which did not go through a protracted early access cycle (again, perhaps they should have) not did they "sell" me anything years in advance of launch. ( I did pre-order a few weeks in advance of launch, first game I've done so since ArcheAge Alpha)

    Sure, FO76 is an extension of FO4, but I've yet to see a single drop down menu from the earlier title, don't recall the launch being a total shit show (wasn't delayed multiple times), might have run poorly for many, (never an issue for me, but I waited a few weeks post launch) but certainly hasn't experienced the challenges some folks in this title has.

    Perhaps it's more a matter of degree than anything else, at different ends of the spectrum.
