ARMA 2 ARG?

An apparent "hacking" incident on the ARMA 2 Website earlier today may have been the kick off of a new alternate reality game for Bohemia's military shooter series. The Bohemia Interactive Forums have discussion of the incident and attempts to sift through the clues to see if there's a deeper meaning to all this. Thanks PC Gamer.

Very nice. Would be cool if it was something like OFP, just in the 60s or so.

Also: Hire American voice actors instead of the usual crop of eastern bloc folk doing their best impression of Yosemite Sam.

Just flat out hire the guys doing the ACE2 mod.

And for Pete's sakes scrap the radio system and rework it.

If you really want to feel ancient peruse this:

Wallshadows, an ARG is an Alternate Reality Game; basically something like a text adventure where the story unfolds through decoding hidden messages in web pages and gaining access to other, hidden webpages with information on (in this case) a future product. It's become a trendy form of advertising recently, but before this they were games in themselves. The "Alternate Reality" part comes from when such games were set in a world slightly different from the one the players lived in, eg the players were uncovering a mafia conspiracy via payphones or the like.

What the hell is an ARG? All it makes me think of is something I would say when I get frustrated, caps included.

ARG = Alternate Reality Game.

I like the reference (in one of the fake news stories from late 2010) about OFP:DR
