  1. Yea when it first started I got interested and thought 'this could be it,' especially when we saw the flower-camo-thing, but when the orcs showed up I figured it just didn't seem similar enough and started doing something else. Cue stomping, I start watching again, and a rex shows up. I wasn't sure what exactly I was watching, but I was definitely interested by that point. I'm gonna guess that the respawn system we have there is reuse of what's left of the Colony Ship's systems.
  2. I was looking over some things and noticed this in Diana's Aberration note #4 This note is where Diana discovers that she's working with Santiago and how he's a big deal, and the implication is that Santiago is also behind the creation of this. A 'Sentient malware application' named 'Nuke Death.' It could be nothing, just a joke, but a 'sentient malware' that runs with element sounds a lot like Corruption...
  3. I wanted to make this post myself, but you did it first. I agree wholeheartedly, this is just teasing Santiago's return in Gen2, and I fully expect to see more notes from him in the future chronicles.
  4. Dunno about your thoughts on how well it swims, that's gonna be a 'let's see' for me, but as for water, there's plenty of water we can see at the bottom of the trench, which by my guess, is pretty big. Not to mention, they're giving us the canoe, and specifically said when they revealed it that 'they wouldn't give us the canoe if we weren't going to be able to use it' (or something like that), which heavily implies the existence of a water biome. Something doesn't need a reason to evolve. 'Evolution' is simply the process of natural selection, and that happens all on its own, ahem, nat
  5. That actually isn't the new tek suit we're getting, if we assume it's the same one we're unlocking slowly through the chronicles. The leggings look a lot different, I'll see if I can't get a screenshot to compare the two pieces we have already, but I know that that video isn't it.
  6. Lot of stuff to go over here... As someone else noted, we can see two 'small' moon-like objects in the sky and one giant planet object. If I had to guess, I would suggest that we were on a third moon of the big planet. There's also wreckage from the colony ship, or perhaps just something left behind from it, so I think it's safe to say that this planet/moon is wherever we go to at the end of Genesis 2. The main character of the teaser was Santiago, and the console he messed with opened up some kind of data purge on Santiago's own data? It's not completely clear what exactly he did,
  7. I'm still leaning towards a major announcement GP2 or ARK 2. All the talk of the new UE5 engine coming out has me thinking ARK 2 myself, but a major GP2 announcement wouldn't surprise me either. I don't think it'll be an entirely new game, anyway, I think it'll for sure be ARK related news.
  8. That's the Game Award's picture from their website: https://thegameawards.com/ It isn't something that Wildcard put together for us about their announcement. I don't think they said anything of substance in that post about TGA, they're just building up hype.
  9. Sure it may have been mostly pulled out of thin air and only loosely based on a picture which may or may not have been picked for any important reason at all, but regardless of the context wouldn't it be real cool? We have to fight Rockwell back off parts of the ship to gain access codes and reach other parts of the ship and in the end we get control of the security systems and march an army of those auto-meks to purge Rockwell from the ship! Well now I'm really just thinking up stuff randomly, but the point is, I like my idea, and despite how little reason I have to believe it, I wi
  10. Possible, sure, but going years back just for a 'hmmm'? Granted, they might just have pictures like that sitting around somewhere that she picked and it just happened to be from that trailer
  11. They genetically engineered dinosaurs in real life, and with the discovery of element, they're announcing the construction of a new real life Ark game, where they actually put you on a real ark. A step above VR gameplay. Also, Rockwell escaped from the game and recreated the noglin, and the whole world is currently at risk. She used a screenshot from the trailer that introduced Island Ascension, it'd be kinda strange to go all the way back to grab that image for no particular reason. Perhaps, the ascension on this map is crazy? But then again, what could warrant ascension being 'beyo
  12. Sometimes there's just nothing new to discuss. If someone thinks up something new or a different take on something old, we'll post about it, but we can't just come up with new, coherent theories every day lol. Recently, there was an explosion of activity in this thread which started mostly because of the ExtraLife stream, and like d1nk said, I guarantee it'll be active again as soon as something new gets revealed
  13. Well, it would seem they decided they could actually afford to hire well known voice actors and thought that they would enhance the game. Ultimately, I don't think it makes much of a difference, and HLN-A had already spoken so much that I had gotten used to her voice as well. I really wouldn't have minded HLN-A's voice actor staying the same. Although, I've got to say, Rockwell's new voice in the teaser was awfully great. It seems reasonable to assume that the planet we see from there is relevant. In the same solar system, or perhaps we were going to tour a series of different pla
  14. The new mammoth is good enough for the alpha gorilla and beta Lysrix for sure. Stegos have made themselves even more useful than they already were, gathering wood as well as berries and thatch now, while being even more powerful in fights. The sharks though... Good luck in the Caverns of Lost Hope lol I like the change, it's more fun this way, but I'll be damned if fighting through Lost Hope doesn't seem impossible now. Overall it's a nice TLC, though I wish they would've made the mammoth's collision box a bit smaller, since it's very fat as of right now.
  15. I currently agree about the direction of the chronicles here, with my only change being that Helena was in the Genesis Simulation for a short period of time -- When she created HLN-A. Memories from this period of time would be particularly relevant as well, and could provide some insight on what's going on. It was said that HLN-A was supposed to wipe all 30 day old memories, but I don't recall anything about Helena being unable to change that. My guess is that Helena had set the memories to be recovered when HLN-A left the Genesis Simulation and got onto the Colony Ship, as a way
  16. Basically, that's not fully explained yet. We'll likely get more information on the nature of the Ship in the new dlc when it's out. But, most likely, the ship was sent out when the Arks were first launched, as a backup plan in case the Arks failed. So, we haven't given up on Earth.
  17. Astrolodons, now in an atmosphere near you!
  18. Imagine an ARK where tails don't go flying through walls. Perhaps an Ark where things don't spawn in the walls of caves. Or a world where cave entrances don't look like a void. Honestly, I'd love to see Ark recreated on a new engine with everything they've learned.
  19. Premise: -Helena can not stay in the Genesis Simulation for long -Rockwell and Helena are very similar, their only difference being that Rockwell has a physical form Therefore, Rockwell can't stay in the Simulation for long either, which is why he uses a puppet, the Corrupted Master Controller, to control things for him. The Colony Ship and the Genesis Simulation were created by the same people using the same systems. It's more than likely that neither Rockwell or Helena, or any Homo Deus, can not properly take control of the ship. This is why Rockwell still can't change th
  20. Well that's the one that Rockwell purposefully messed up and changed. The life preservation on (half) the ship seems to have been purposefully left alone, on the other hand. HLN-A is a very similar type of entity compared to homo deus, though she isn't quite as strong as a deus or Rockwell. There also don't seem to be any deus on the ship--------------------------- Hold up, I'm gonna stop that thought there, I had a realization HLN-A, Genesis I Chronicles, note #15, Extinction "Once Helena’s friends beamed her into the Genesis simulation, she made me. But then she l
  21. The respawn systems of the Arks and on Earth were disabled, but the Colony Ship likely has its own respawn and cloning systems that are independent of the Arks and Earth. After all, it's supposed to carry with it all kinds of life, so it must have the cloning systems needed to create it. I was coming up with a possible explanation. Ultimately, it's probably the same as the part 2 chronicles, and they didn't actually take place on the Arks, even though the contents of them are completely correct. Well, the GenSim and the Colony Ship are both connected, it definitely wouldn't sur
  22. 1. Helena creates HLN-A in the GenSim 2. HLN-A exits the GenSim and travels with us for a time, possibly to create a bond before our important tasks 3. Helena (not HLN-A) sends us to Genesis and calls HLN-A back to join us. HLN-A isn't really sure what's going on because she isn't pulling the strings here. I want to hold you back on the 'just a hologram' bit. Her physical form is just a hologram, but she's still a very advanced AI that can connect to the rest of the systems and the Simulation itself as well. That's like calling a homo deus just an hologram because that's
  23. HLN-A actually is an amnesiac. It was mentioned in the ARG before the Genesis teaser first came out I believe. Her memories only last 30 days 'to prevent undesirable neurological affects' or something of the sort. Now there's a point. Certainly Rockwell didn't send us back to the Island so we could hear HLN-A talk to us. Realistically, HLN-A did not go back there, of course, everything she said is true, but not where she said it. So I'll actually agree with you here, the Gen 2 Chronicles are certainly filled with canon information, but HLN-A didn't say it on the Island. I d
  24. I really should've noticed that a long time ago...
  25. The dinos aren't made of element, well, the tek ones are. Not to mention that there's element all over the place in this ship. And we aren't made of it either, but we do have an implant, which certainly has element... Err Speaking of... Our implant in the Genesis custcene appears... Unpowered? And the Feddie tek suit gauntlets don't have an implant slot... I suppose that the Federation suit wasn't designed with survivors in mind, but this also implies that implants were not common among tek-era humans, or at least not for the Feds, they might've been for those living u
