Re: Trying to decipher a sleep sequence

But why does Darsie matter that much? Is she wearing that stuff in her concept art?

I just don't really find it likely that she's the one in the dream sequences. Maybe the Guardian of Knowledge?

I wish someone could rip the model so we had something to look at.

Re: Trying to decipher a sleep sequence

The two sets of figures are BUSes, but different from the Bishop's (they have helmet-filters where the Bishop does not) and the other are the terrorists from the roof in the gameplay video of The Tower. If the third individual is Jenkins (who really doesn't fit the curly hair guy's description - he'...

Re: Playing without the B.U.S.

I guess we've reached the point where doing -all- the ridiculous things is the only way to find new dialogue in our 100-plus playthroughs? :P

Interesting that the Traitor realizes you aren't wearing your BUS and kills you accordingly.

Re: ARG V2 Dialer Collaboration!

Reading through it, I wanted more details but all I got was: Came from Andromeda Galaxy First recorded visit during Sumerian civilization. I'm certain Pawn 32 is their agent. C'mon, Andromeda? Pawn 32 is literally a Pawn. I seriously doubt she knows anything - and she's pretty clearly brainwashed. ...

Re: ARG V2 Dialer Collaboration!

Are the Guardians actually... Aliens? I mean, I'd go with them as other dimensional travelers, personally - doing the same thing we do digitally, physically. It plays into the Consortium Chess theme, we're the Whites to their Blacks, two sides of the same coin trying to shape the pieces on the board.

Re: ARG V2 Dialer Collaboration!

I was just pointing out that Henry doesn't do as many fairly pointless things anymore. I kinda miss it. He used to be fascinated by our music and differences between our histories and words that sound cool. He really isn't anymore. It's.... kinda disappointing, honestly. And I find his new behavior...

Re: Minor Lore Questions

Sweet, Thrie - you guys put alot into it, and I imagined most stuff was already thought out. Does the satellite's simplicity mean we might be seeing a more advanced version of the briefing in the Tower - explained away as 'upgrades' both literally and in the metanarrative? The Dumbwaiter makes -way-...

Re: ARG V2 Dialer Collaboration!

Remember - Henry isn't a raw artificial intelligence. He's 21 brains digitized, and his thought patterns are in many ways influenced by how those people thought and acted. He isn't a HAL-type rules follower, he's 21 digitized people working in a balance between those imprints. It makes him far more ...

Re: ARG V2 Dialer Collaboration!

It's possible that K-1 did still cause the Earthquake (I'd actually call it probable) but the causative factor certainly wasn't a hack of the Japanese weather control device. That appears to have been a closely-monitored asset that sends up alarm bells at its use. I theorize, actually, that whatever...

(Spoilers All) What We Know So Far - Seeker's Guide to the Rift.

The Churchill Tower - a mixture of a bridge, a hotel, an office complex, a fusion reactor, a water treatment facility, and an apex of constant dimensional chaos on the verge of a gray goo epidemic. We know a little bit about it. Rook 3's daughter, Darcy Linsworth, works at the site. Malcolm Thomas, ...

Minor Lore Questions

Hey guys - great game. Leaves me with a bunch of nitpicks' about Zenlil's actual design. 1) So... about the Mission Pods. There's no way you can fit all of Zenlil in one of those things. There's over 20 people aboard and those things can fit -maybe- 4 people knee to knee plus a pilot. Clown car, muc...

Re: Character Design

I think it adds to the design, in a way - very clean like the Consortium's aesthetic - but it's pretty egregious how similar Pawn 7's corpse and Wade look, for instance. Hard to make a lot of good characters different enough. Voice acting helps for sure.

Re: ARG V2 Dialer Collaboration!

Regarding the Vancouver Earthquake, I thought that there were two official ARG timelines - and that the 'first' timeline with the London Hacker and SECURITY LOCKDOWN INITIATED was from the virus implanted via Jack Geas. This allowed Malcolm Thomas to hack the King directly and turn him into a weapon...
