The PAX South 2016 schedule is now up and running. We have a lot of great stuff for you to check out and you can see it all right here: http://south.paxsite.com/schedule
Also be sure to check back in the next few weeks because there are couple more content pieces that will be popping up!
In 2004, the folks at Penny Arcade decided they wanted a show exclusively for gaming. Sure, comics, anime, and other nerd hobbies were cool, and those activities all had their own shows… so what about games? From that idea spawned a small 4,500 person event in Bellevue, Washington, focused on the culture and community that is gaming.
Since then, the show hasn’t looked back. Doubling in size each year until venue capacities were reached, in 2010 the show expanded into Boston for PAX East, drawing tens of thousands of attendees in the inaugural year. The shows in Seattle and Boston represent the two largest gaming events in North America!
The day has come to drop the curtain for the Big Reveal!
We recommend that you begin by watching this video from Creative Director J. Todd Coleman and Design Lead Thomas Blair, and then read the FAQ below.
The team is looking forward to reading your feedback and discussing this system with you on our forums.

About This Game
As a man or woman stranded naked, freezing and starving on the shores of a mysterious island called ARK, you must hunt, harvest resources, craft items, grow crops, research technologies, and build shelters to withstand the elements. Use your cunning and resources to kill or tame the leviathan dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the land, and team up with or prey on hundreds of other players to survive, dominate... and escape!
The following features are in the game on it's Day-1 Early Access release. We have many more aspects and refinements planned for the long-term development roadmap, and here's what you get to experience right now in ARK:
Dinosaurs and creatures -- over 30 at Early Access start and 70+ planned for final release -- can be tamed using a challenging capture-&-affinity process, involving weakening a feral creature to knock it unconscious, and then nursing it back to health with appropriate food. Once tamed, you can issue commands to your Pet, which it may follow depending on how well you’ve tamed and trained it. Pets, which can continue to level-up and consume food, can also carry Inventory and Equipment such as Armor, carry prey back to your settlement depending on their strength, and larger pets can be ridden and directly controlled! Fly a Pterodactyl over the snow-capped mountains, lift allies over enemy walls, race through the jungle with a pack of Raptors, tromp through an enemy base along a gigantic brontosaurus, or chase down prey on the back of a raging T-Rex! Take part in a dynamic ecosystem life-cycle with its own predator & prey hierarchies, where you are just one creature among many species struggling for dominance and survival.
A long established outfit, TRG was founded in May of 2003 on the day that Planetside was released. Since then we have developed into a fully fledged multi-gaming community, with players from all over the world enjoying a wide variety of games and play styles. From the hardcore Planetside 2 shocktroops to the more casual sandbox style games, our members enjoy the full spectrum of gaming experiences.
While Planetside 2 is still a mainstay of our organization, we do enjoy a variety of other games. Some of the other more popular games include:
- Star Citizen
- Guild Wars 2
- League of Legends
- The World Of Tanks franchise
- Rainbow 6 Siege
- World of Warcraft
All of these games, and many more, bring a diverse playerbase to our community, allowing us to interact with each other and discuss gaming and strategy in a manner that organizations centered around a single game don't experience. While some of our members stick to one or two games, many have diversified into new games recommended by another community member, and found a new passion.
Here at TRG, that is exactly what we are about; allowing you to bring your passion for gaming into a likeminded community of gamers from across the globe.
As a large, and active community of several hundred players, we do have a few ground rules to become a member of :
1. You must be 18+
2. Forum registration is required, and use highly encouraged
3. You must be able to at least listen on Teamspeak
4. Drama is not allowed, and is shut down, quickly.
So if you think you can meet these requirements, then I highly encourage you to sign up for a community of gamers that wants you to join them as we continue to venture into the depths of what gaming has to offer us.
