I'm not sure... what... I... what am I doing.

How many more times does this game has to be revealed?

God I hate things like this. Just announce a date for your press conference, show up, and show us your damn game.

ARG, just wait until other people figure it out.

Jest Chillin 02-12-2013 01:02 AM

My guess is everyone who goes to the site will get a different image (up to a point). Those images must then be collected and combined to create the final teaser image.

Edit: I played a lot of The Secret World ARGs. ;p

I agree with this. I'm just done with all the bs involved with marketing.

Queen of Hunting 02-12-2013 01:03 AM

wasnt it stated that when bungie stopped developing halo games and moved to contracts under activision it was said their next game was exclusive to ms ? sure i read that around the time

[QUOTE]"Our sky is filled with unseen signals. Radio-frequency emissions pulse and flit and dance all around us. Yet even a singing patch of sky can be observed, and transformed into a range of frequencies.

Can you hear it? No, not yet. It has not yet arrived. But together we can receive its call.

Imagine combining the observations of thousands across the globe on an object meandering through the heavens. The resulting array would be quite large. Quite powerful. This is your task.

Alone it will not be enough. Coordination and timing is needed. Observations must be made simultaneously.

Your window will be small. Five minutes at most. But windows may be reopened. And the distance between observer pairs will be key.

There will always be limitations in clarity, so the results must be archived for study. Highly technical observers may be required. Detailed frequency analysis is recommended.

Everything that belongs to us will be ours, but only if we create the capacity to receive it."[/QUOTE]

I'm stumped.

I guess the "Frequency gaps detected. Additional global observatories required." means the more people hit the site, the more we'll know.

kittens 02-12-2013 01:04 AM

omg omg omg finally YES

StuBurns 02-12-2013 01:04 AM

I'm guessing it's the planet's attempt to scan the object? Lame shit, show me your video game.

[QUOTE=StuBurns;47596621]I'm guessing it's the planet's attempt to scan the object? Lame shit, show me your video game.[/QUOTE]

Well there's a seven day countdown clock so I imagine it will be next Monday:

I disagree, I love ARGs, way better than the shite like "Hey like our site, at 50000 you get the trailer"

ii Stryker 02-12-2013 01:05 AM

I AM READY!!!

Family Fry 02-12-2013 01:05 AM

Ok so let me get this straight it's counting down from 7-1 representing each day?

So that means this ends Feb 19th?

SWEET MOTHER OF GOD!

[QUOTE=Nirolak;47596564][IMG]http://www.abload.de/img/destiny1w8ksm.jpg[/IMG][/QUOTE]

This is what I got as well. If enough GAF members want to work with it, it may be helpful to log the img url's to a Google Doc to keep it organized. Then anyone with the proper 'shop skills can combine it.

funkystudent 02-12-2013 01:05 AM

chances of a reveal on the 20th?

mugoldeneagle03 02-12-2013 01:06 AM

Time to sit back and let everyone else do the work so we can all drool together in the end. Can't wait until GDC

Excellent, I thought we'd have to wait for MS to announce their new system first.

[QUOTE=Nirolak;47596564][IMG]http://www.abload.de/img/destiny1w8ksm.jpg[/IMG][/QUOTE]

Got the same thing as you. Resets every 5 minutes?

EDIT: Got this now.

I think it was that MS had the first option for exclusivity rather than direct exclusivity.

Jtwo 02-12-2013 01:07 AM

Shit goddamn. It's coming.

[QUOTE=les papillons sexuels;47596757]overlay the images you get with other ones.[/QUOTE]

Judging by how it's evolving, I think it's just filling itself out.

Family Fry 02-12-2013 01:08 AM

So the point of this is everyone has to be looking at it at the same time to increase the size of the picture?

Corto 02-12-2013 01:08 AM

7 days countdown? Pretty close to the Playstation meeting. The PS4 reveal will deflate a bit of the hype for Destiny.

Baconsammy 02-12-2013 01:08 AM

I see Crash Bandicoot on the gray side.

Fantastical Idea. Anybody make this happen?

EDIT: Yea it looks like it is just filling in gradually.

Might very well be the other way around for me. Destiny is gonna be the bees knees.
