Giant Bomb Mailbag: Numbers Station Edition
It wouldn't make any sense if it was The Outsider, they are clearly setting it up to be some sort of post-apocalyptic/nuclear/atom game (from what I've read and seen, The Outsider is none of that).
Part of me really want to believe it's Duke Nukem Forever or HL2:E3, but these doesn't quite fit the description either.

Was just listening to the audio on that site that was linked in the update. Right at the end it says "hell is purple". Googled it and came to this site: http://www.purplehell.com/ Turns out to be " Purple Hell, your one stop shop for riddle tools and resources.
Don't know if thats any help. Its interesting though.
edit: One more thing. The first letter of these words: Cryptography
Spells Cipher. Thats as far as I got...
Registrar: MARKMONITOR INC.
Dont know if that helps at all, the registrar info I have found is vague but suggests its registered through an anti fraud company (?)
Idk, its kinda weird cus it also mentions DNStination INC.
I dont suggest following these leads though, it doesnt look like its internally hosted by any game company that I can tell but whatever company it is could be related, I really dont know. But ya... can do whois searches for domain names through google if your realy interested; not gonna copy all the info here from it, tho, doesnt seem like something I should do.
I totally agree. And if what the http://gknova6.com/ website shows us isnt completely bullshit and misleading, we are definitely looking at something linked to nuclear war or some setting where atomic bombs are key. And most likely in a POST-apocalyptic setting.

this is DEFINITELY ... Fallout: New Vegas.
gnova6 website , you can turn the knob to adjust the picture on the screen. Near the end it shows the element of uranium, and a picture of a group of people that could be something like the manhatten project but i could be wrong about that part.

It was on this video that was linked to earlier.
EDIT: Skip to 3:15
Its kinda weird though, that they got a return adress to check out and GiantBomb did not. Also, leaving a return adress is way too revealing. Its not that simple, at least I wont believe that.
Yeah, I'm also curious about what that is
" Someone explain to me what is this: http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/6626/mysterypics.jpg "
Has anyone considered the blinking light on the tv to see if that has significance. perhaps morse code. Though it could be random blinking. Also considering the 5 lights, and that people don't like to do work on weekends I agree with the theory that the site will change each day this week and the April week two is referring to this week.
" I just thought of something. If it is fallout related that might explain why it was sent to brad. He did just start fallout 3 and if the Bethesda guys listen to the bombcast they may figure he'd be best to send it to. Either that or everyone loves brad. "You are a genius
I think the most logical answer here is Fallout: New Vegas, but why go through all this fuzz for a game that has already been announced. The marketing style on the other hand fits Valve, with the Portal audio clips surfacing not long ago, but then again the contend doesn't fit any of their games. Unless it's a completely new one, though I really doubt that.
By the way, got to say I'm really impressed by the community's riddle-solving skills.
Joystick broke the code, seems right, may be more, but here is what they found

"yeah,,my guess is either fallout cause of the clues, or the CliffyB game that he's announcing, since epic still has that one studio making the unannounced game... maybe they're giving us time to figure it out, then reveal the whole thing on thursday?
All the clues add up to it being Bethesda, and Fallout: New Vegas.
But damn, reading these comments and all this deciphering, Giant Bomb is full of really intelligent people :)
