Obsidian Teases… Something

obtease2

Hey, don’t look now, but… Obsidian is up to something.  I’m not sure what it is, and by not sure, I mean I have no frikkin clue.  But strange things are definitely afoot at the Obsidian website.  Read on for what little details there are.

The above image is what you see when you first land on the Obsidian Entertainment homepage.  Any idea what it means?  No?  Me neither.  To make things even more interesting/confusing, try viewing the page’s source code.  You’ll find the following cryptic text.

In time, waves washing against the fingers of Geiran’s Grasp will call them back into the sea. The difference between you and the sea is that the sea does not stop

Any idea who Geiran is?  Or who he/she/it is grasping?  No?  Me neither.  Yesterday, a similar image greeted visitors to Obsidian.

obteaseThe day before that, an image with a 4 appeared, all three featuring hidden text in the source code.  Just like Jeff Goldblum in Independence Day, I’ve used a quirky combination of technical expertise and deductive reasoning to conclude that there is a pattern to these images, that they are in fact a countdown, and that the countdown will end this Friday.  What happens at the end of that countdown is anyone’s guess, but I’m going to assume it won’t be an alien invasion.  And if we are invaded by aliens on Friday, I’m going to assume its timing is coincidental.  Instead, we will likely see the unveiling of something Obsidian is currently calling “Project X.”  Clicking on the images brings you to this forum, entitled “Project X Speculation & Discussion.”

Whatever Obsidian is up to, it sure has fans buzzing.  This is a studio behind one of the biggest western RPGs in recent memory, Fallout: New Vegas, and fans have been wondering what they would come up with next.  It appears as if we’re going to find out in a couple days.  Until then, keep one eye on Obsidian’s website, and the other on the skies….. for aliens.  Because you never know.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
