Twelve boys who were stranded in a cave in Thailand when it suddenly flooded are now beginning the harrowing process of trying to make their way out, despite not being able to swim or scuba dive. The boys, who are part of a soccer team, were visiting the narrow, winding Tham Luang caves in Chiang Rai province when a flash flood marooned the boys deep in the labyrinthine cave system on June 23. They were found on Monday (July 2), and though authorities initially attempted to pump water out of the caves, it now seems clear that the boys will have to dive out, or risk spending months there until the waters subside naturally, CNN reported. But how can people who don't know how to swim or scuba dive navigate their way out of a pitch-black, 1.5-mile-long (2.5 kilometers) cave system filled with strong, rushing waters? The key is that the boys probably need only "quick and dirty" training in the very basics of scuba diving, while relying on the help of experienced cave divers for most of … [Read more...] about How Scuba Divers Will Rescue Soccer Team Trapped in Thai Cave

Earlier this month Studio Wildcard announced that its hit dinosaur action-adventure game ARK: Survival Evolved would release for Android on June 14th, and as long as my eyes aren't deceiving me, it would appear that the studio has stayed true to its word. You can grab the dino-adventure off of the Play Store right now. Just make sure you have a beefy device, as you will need at least 3 GB of RAM and 2.11 GB of free storage. So far reviews on the Play Store are mixed. Quite a few users have reported a blank screen when they boot, and others have mentioned poor performance and a low framerate. Honestly, this isn't much of a surprise as the game isn't very optimized for consoles or PC either. I suppose at the very least it's nice to know we can all test the game out to find out how it performs without having to put any money down, which is more than can be said for all those console and PC players. In my experience, ARK: Survival Evolved ran adequately on my OP5T and GS8+, though … [Read more...] about ARK: Survival Evolved is here, so get ready to start taming your favorite prehistoric beasts

Update 1: 2018/06/06 7:11am PDT ARK: Survival Evolved officially coming to Android on June 14th Studio Wildcard's hit dinosaur-themed survival game ARK: Survival Evolved is coming to Android this spring, and you can pre-register for the release right now on playark.com. Interestingly this upcoming on-the-go version of ARK is being designed and developed by War Drum Studios as a free-to-play release. It's supposed to closely mirror the online survival experience contained in the PC and console versions, though there will be some necessary changes with the shift in monetization, which leaves me apprehensive as to how the finished product will turn out. So far details are pretty light, but what we do know is that the game will be tailored to mobile. Currently, there are a few listed features from the recent announcement.
