Dino Release Day: Primal Carnage Now On Steam

Are dinosaurs the new zombies? Could they end up becoming our next guiltless gun target du jour? Between Dino D-Day, Orion: Dino Beatdown, and now Primal Carnage, pre-history's least lovable lizards have recently found themselves in our crosshairs more than, well, ever - largely because crosshairs didn't exist back when they weren't asteroid dust. Problem is, no one's really figured out how exactly to make this brand of incredibly asymmetrical combat shine just yet. So then, can Primal Carnage soar where others have flapped helplessly with their tiny T-Rex arms and fallen off a cliff? Let's find out. Let's find out together.

Primal Carnage is out on Steam right now for the rather un-multiple-stories-tall price of $14.99. Apparently, though, it's a bit unstable at the moment, with some users reporting start-up problems (which can be fixed by disabling anti-aliasing) and a few other assorted crash issues.

Here's hoping everything gets (dino) sorted soon, though, because I'm interested in finding out whether Primal Carnage is simply all-out chaos all the time, or if there's more to it than that. Also, I can't help but wonder how much longevity it can muster with only five locations and one mode. And, most importantly, will the inevitable DLC include hats? I sure hope so. If my T-Rex can't sport a comedically tiny top hat while flossing human remains from his teeth with other human remains, then no deal.
