The Isle is a great looking multiplayer dinosaur survival sandbox in which you can stalk and stomp your way around a Jurassic Park-style tropical island, controlling humans, dinosaurs and a third faction which has yet to be announced.

Inspired by Rust, DayZ, Jurassic Park and the ill dated The Stomping Land, The Isle pits technologically advanced humans against the brute force and speed of the primeval inhabitants of the Isle.

The Pre-Alpha Build is still very early in development so it does just offer a taster of things to come at the moment, allowing you to explore part of the beautiful tropical island, as humans or a selection of four different dinosaurs (T-Rex, Austrosaurus, Gallimimus, Puertasaurus).  The full game will add another faction, lots more dinosaurs, allow players to form groups, grow from a juvenile to a fully grown dinosaur, create bases, collect DNA, craft and investigate why the dinosaurs are here in the first place.

It’s about time dinosaurs made a comeback, and with the Jurassic World movie and ARK: Survival Evolved also due for release this year, 2015 really is turning into the year of the dinosaur.  It still needs evolve a bit, but with it’s great visuals and enticing dino-based gameplay, The Isle is a very promising prospect - a fun sandbox survivalsaurus.

Nothing sums up the forest of Nova Scotia better than the opening line of Evangeline by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

“THIS is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks,
Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight,
Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic,
Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.
Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean
Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest.”

This is wrong. No human being in history has seen these creatures alive before us… we’ve been given the most amazing gift. And how do we repay that? That privilege? By killing them because they’re… inconvenient. What does that say about humans? About us? Lester, after all we’ve done here, is this how we’re going to be remembered?

What we now want most is closer contact and better understanding between individuals and communities all over the earth and the elimination of that fanatic devotion to exalted ideals of national egoism and pride, which is always prone to plunge the world into primeval barbarism and strife.

The caves are rock-cut Hindu shrines and this panel shows Vishnu as the boar-headed incarnation Varaha. The god rises from the cosmic waters, defeating the primeval serpent monster, and rescuing the goddess Bhudevi (earth), who hangs from his tusk.

I honestly don't see the problem some people are having with the finale and possible arc for Season 11. I absolutely LOOOOOVED that episode and, concerning Darkness and its supposed nonentity if compared to other baddies, I'd say I'm just lucky I have a lot of Tolkien lore to back me up on that aspect and make me see the potential of Darkness as the primeval nihilistic chaos, whose intention could be bringing everything back to its original chaotic state, and that's in fact quite exciting to me.

I loved loved LOVED the finale!  Sam showed why Death was honored to reap Sam himself, because sweet, brave, selfless Sam forgives and offers absolution.

Darkness has so much potential.  I love your chaos theory.  If Cas killed Crowley, that means Hell would be in chaos too.  Chaos on earth and in Hell, Heaven just got back in order, thanks to Hannah, so maybe the angels will become relevant again and fight back the Darkness.  I always thought the Mark looked like a key, so maybe there’s a lock to keep Darkness contained.  Dun Dum Duuuuuuuun, Sam is the lock!  

that’s my theory anyways.
