My Me, 125GB install. Me, I hope I get that job so I can upgrade my game drive storage!

Also saw a youtube video of this game a day or two ago, and saw Vin in it, looked weird.

This is a great game, guys. Warning - highly addictive! Happy to "Bob" with anyone (a "Bob" is a basic, noob player)!!!

If I want to play just with a few family members do I need to host locally or is there a way to make a private instance/server?

You can host your own on the Internet, although it's fairly complicated (and I say that as an IT guy). Better to host locally for free (LAN play or just you) or join one of the many, many public servers out there. You can go to unofficial ones that have accelerated boost rates, etc. to help make it more of a fun versus "no-life" game. :)

There are official servers right within the game. Beware though!

Have a thousand or two hours on the game. Pretty fun, used to be more friendly to individual or casual players but a fantastic game for the enticing price of free

If you click on the download button on the DLCs but cancel the actual download I believe it will claim the DLCs as well. Each time I did that the install size for the game increased.

If you guys like pve only so you can build to your heart's content - check out alliancegaming servers. The best experience I've had of the thousands of hours I played Ark.

The owner is a straight arrow, fair but strict with his rules. Let's you build as big as possible with as big of a base as you want. Average pop is around 7 to 10 players on any of the maps (one server connected to all maps).

Plus it's pumped up a bit to like 3 or 4x everything.

Too busy playing GTA, I just transferred the content off my system and will play it when I feel like getting into it.
