Jurassic World might just be the worst movie I ever paid money to see. It wasted a perfectly fine premise (rich people doubling down on past mistakes for profit) on a soulless, oddly sadistic “adventure” that wiped out whatever hope I had left that there will ever be a great sequel to the wonderful 1993 original Jurassic Park.
Which is why I’m thrilled that, despite sharing a name, Jurassic World Evolution has nearly nothing to do with that infuriatingly profitable nightmare. There are nods here and there: you can eventually build those hideous bubble cars, for instance. Bryce Dallas Howard seemingly contributed about 30 seconds of voice acting. There’s a Chris Pratt soundalike to match a photo of his face that occasionally advises you. Other than that, though, this park management sim is its own scaly beast.
As well it should be. When it comes to good premises, planning and operating your own version of Jurassic Park is definitely one. And I’m happy to say Evolution uses that potential much better than its namesake film—at least for a while.Managing managers
The plot of Evolution basically ignores the events of both World films. You’re just a faceless, nameless manager selected to make a new dinosaur park profitable. That means cloning terrible lizards, arranging gift shops and restaurants for audiences, and keeping your corporate departments happy. That last item is especially important. Managing park attendance earns cash, but playing nice with your heads of science, entertainment, and security is how you progress through the game.

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is led by a deal on Samsung's T5 portable solid-state drive, with the 500GB version now up for $128 on Amazon. The speedy SSD has typically gone in the $150-170 range for most of the year; this deal price is a new low.
Not everyone needs something like this, but backing up your data is always a good idea, and a portable hard drive makes it easy to transport that data on the go. A portable SSD is more durable, compact, and much faster than a portable HDD, but they typically come at a significant price premium. This deal price, however, brings things closer to genuine parity.
The T5 here comes with USB-C to C and USB-C to A cables, a three-year warranty, and 256-bit hardware encryption. Samsung advertises read speeds of up to 540MB/s and write speeds of 515MB/s; just know you'll need to a device with USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports to get close to that. Provided your device isn't that old, though, it should be fast either way.
Watch your back, Scott Rogowsky.
