  1. All I know is that the name "L Livingstone" appears both on the broodmother dossier as well as the name for a plaza in the sanctuary, implying that someone named L Livingstone may have worked with element and was also such a huge public figure to the ancient humans that they named a plaza in the sanctuary after him. As for how he might fit into the story, if at all, I'm not sure.
  2. Here are the last notes themselves and my interpretation: "The background levels of Element are way higher on this Ark. I wonder whether that was part of the plan -- to see what you survivors would do with Element if you had access to it. Or maybe… maybe it’s the reverse. The plan was to see what Element would do if it had access to survivors. That’s the thing about Element: it adapts to whatever it’s in contact with. If you aren’t careful, Element can corrupt you. But I know you’ll be careful. After all, we made it this far, eh?" "When things got really bad on Earth -- wars, El
  3. Wildcard: "There will be no chronicle notes in Extinction." Wildcard: *puts chronicle notes in Extinction* Wildcard: Us: Joking aside, how the heck does that even happen? Why would they go through the trouble of explicitly stating there would be no notes added to Extinction if they were going to do just that? Heck, I didn't even know they were added at first because I saw Extinction in the Xbox queue and just assumed it was part of the QoL changes.
  4. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Requesting status report. [LOG_RECEIVE] Doing some marine biology, believe it or not. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Ah, that's right in my bailiwick. [LOG_TRANSMIT] The code for your next terminal entry is 61509d23-fa82-4dd5-80d6-d551d4cec71b. [LOG_RECEIVE] Terminal Entry MM-13 [LOG_RECEIVE] To be blunt: Thar be whales here. [LOG_RECEIVE] Fins, flippers, blowholes...the works! [LOG_RECEIVE] And out here they don't let a little barrier like "no ocean" stop them.
  5. (Not trying to keep you from buying the game or anything I just thought the vid is funny)
  6. I mean, there might a slim chance of that being true. Honestly though I think it's just Wildcard being Wildcard.
  7. If you remember during the August 8th stream Cedric sort of accidently mentioned "Survivor training", meaning that the whole simulation is meant to put us through all these tests to train us for something. This, combined with the lack of Genesis chronicle notes on Extinction, would make it appear that Genesis taking place between Aberration and Extinction makes sense - Genesis could just be Helena training us for Extinction. The big problem I see with that, though, is that nearly all of the biomes teased for Genesis (aside from the snow biome) have no relevancy in Extinction (It also can't tak
  8. Here we go - in the first photo you can see a strange-looking structure just to the left of the person in the Magmasaur saddle, in the background. The structure in the second photo is just under the Astroceti.
  9. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Requesting status report. [LOG_RECEIVE] It's an arms race over here. [LOG_TRANSMIT] That's both intriguing and worrisome. [LOG_TRANSMIT] For your next terminal entry, use 09fba5e7-7170-4b60-929b-29cca67a0757. [LOG_RECEIVE] Terminal Entry MM-12 [LOG_RECEIVE] A proper arms race depends on two motivators: [LOG_RECEIVE] Escalation and deterrence. [LOG_RECEIVE] No worries if those forces are in balance. But if the weapons escalate too fast, deterrence doesn't work.
  10. So what if this crystal in the Genesis chronicles logo is of some sort of fuel or power source for the simulation itself? Or is it the simulation's equivalent of artifacts, and we have to collect them in order to fight a boss? Or maybe it's some sort of trophy that we can collect after fighting a boss, and collecting a certain amount will enable us to fight a final boss?
  11. Now that I think of it, the name of the Genesis chronicles skins, "Corrupted avatar", could mean that the skin is the avatar we will be playing as in the simulation, but with some errors that make it appear broken and holographic.
  12. To us they're from the future, but at the time the story takes place they've been dead for possibly millions of years.
  13. First, where did you see Aberration creatures in Genesis? Second, the whole point of us being in the simulation is apparently for HLN-A to train us for...something. Third, the 7th Genesis chronicles note states the following: "I just discovered something curious. The minds that made the Arks used them to test some of the critters that you’ll find in the Genesis simulation. My scanner tells me that an immense lizard with an internal bio-furnace was tested here. They don’t have that creature on this Ark anymore -- we’d see the scorch marks if they did. But they tested the fire lizard h
  14. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Requesting status report. [LOG_RECEIVE] Production rising as fast as supplies allow. [LOG_TRANSMIT] As expected. That's basic economics. [LOG_TRANSMIT] The code to validate your next terminal entry is 0eee207c-6749-40a2-ab9c-e22ad181f694. [LOG_RECEIVE] Terminal Entry MM-11 [LOG_RECEIVE] No matter how efficient your production, there's always a limiting factor, [LOG_RECEIVE] Often, the limit is the raw materials available. [LOG_RECEIVE] But if you harvest fast enough, that limit evaporates. This is the mining drill.
  15. Another thing I noticed when watching the trailers again was the presence of not one, but two mysterious tek structures. The first one appears in the Magmasaur trailer, at 0:22 when it briefly cuts to the survivor sitting in the Magmasaur saddle, you can see it far off in the background. The other one appears in the lunar biome trailer, just underneath the astroceti. What exactly could those be for, if not decoration? Could Genesis have a small set of explorer notes that can be found at these structures? Could they give clues to Genesis's past? Do we need to visit them to make progress? b
  16. I want to talk about these vids Epic ARK made about the mysterious images again, the above video in particular. While I was analyzing the Genesis stream reveal trailers again to see if there was anything I missed, I realized that...I don't think the vids are fake. The image in the above video has a striking resemblance to something from the lunar biome reveal trailer. In the trailer, in the upper right-hand corner, behind the astroceti, you can see a group of small boulders floating out in space. The Image in the vid above also has a group of small boulders. If that wasn't enough, here's the t
  17. The Magmasaur saddle as it appears in the trailer. Looks like it's main body is a sort of walk-in fridge with a bunch of small fans and air conditioners on the outside. We can also see that the three leads at the end go over the Magmasaur's frill. Also, just a random thought, how are supposed to get water in the lava region? ?
  18. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Requesting status report. [LOG_RECEIVE] It's hot -- "Outback hot," I'd say. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Understood, but report on the non-Outback aspects. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Validate using 4b72a8e6-c24c-4525-8257-5669bdacf6a6 for the next terminal entry. [LOG_RECEIVE] Terminal Entry MM-10[LOG_RECEIVE] Wheels and treads would melt here,[LOG_RECEIVE] but native life adapts, as always.[LOG_RECEIVE] With enough insulation and cooling, we adapt too. I'm 100% sure that this is the Magmasaur saddle.
  19. What if Genesis part one and two are actually both the exact same map, but part one gives us access to one half of the map's content, and part two gives us the other half. I mean, "Genesis part one" and "Genesis part two" don't exactly sound 100% right as names for individual maps, since none of the other maps are named like that.
  20. I mean, what with all they've teased, a Genesis multiplayer just sounds too absurd to be possible. Then again, Wildcard has never failed to add multiplayer for the other maps, regardless of how atrocious that multiplayer ends up being.
  21. Oh god and what if there was also hordes and horde of duped meks slaughtering noobs and obliterating their bases on Extinction? Or the chance of logging back into a server only to find you've been beaten, abducted, and locked in a cage by an Alpha tribe? That would be terrible.
  22. lol I did not expect this to happen. But seriously though, think about what a server in Genesis would be like, what with all they've teased...guided missiles and walking battle tanks and jump pads and ocean platforms and bloodstalkers and automatic shoulder cannons ripped straight from predator and OH GOD THE PRESSURE PLATE AND SECURITY SYSTEM. It would be complete chaos.
