Over on the Flynn Lives website, there is a countdown that will hit zero on February 24th at 11am EST. Below the countdown there is a slowly revealing list of city names. Current speculation is that things will be happening in those cities when the countdown hits zero, but it’s far too early to tell at this point in time. If you live in or near one of those cities, keep the countdown page or back here for updates within the next 5 days.

 

Update: So the image has completely resolved and all of the cities have been revealed. The original list posted was pretty close to what it finished up to be (the two switches were Detroit -> Denver and Indianapolis -> Minneapolis). We still don’t know what is going to be going on in those cities or exactly where things will be happening, but hopefully an update is on its way so those people who are contemplating taking off work will know if they should or not.

Feel free to bring signs and placards against Malfus Corp if you wish. Remember this is a public space, so please act accordingly so that you don’t get yourself or any others in trouble.

Something in the Sea – Live Event


Game: Something in the Sea
Type: Live Event
Location: Australia / Germany / Italy / Netherlands / France / England / Spain / Long Island / Vancouver / Santa Monica
Date: August 8, 2009
Status: Concluded

Something in the Sea, the campaign for BioShock2, wants everyone to go to one of 10 beaches around the world this Saturday morning. Two memos and a map have appeared on SomethingInTheSea.com that tell when and where something will be happening this Saturday.

As far as I can determine, these are the coordinates – in the order of sunrise on August 8th. According to what I have learned, the tides may carry in valuable information at approx. sunrise at these times.

6:41 AM Bondi Beach (Sydney, Australia) 33° 53′S 151° 16′E
5:43 AM Travemunde (Baltic Beach – Lubeck, Germany) 53° 57′N 10° 52′E
6:03 AM Rimini Beach (Italy) 44° 4′N 12° 34′E
6:15 AM Scheveningen Beach (The Hague, Netherlands) 52° 7′N 4° 17′E
6:28 AM Bay of Angels (Nice, France) 43° 41′N 7° 15′E
5:37 AM Brighton Beach (England) 50° 49′N 0° 8′W
6:54 AM Barceloneta Beach (Spain) 41° 22′N 2° 11′E
5:58 AM Jones Beach (New York, U.S.) 40° 35′N 73° 30′W
5:55 AM Kitsilano Beach (Vancouver, Can.) 49° 16′N 123° 9′W
6:11 AM Santa Monica (California, U.S.) 34° 0′N 118° 29′W

The buzz in the Unfiction forums seems to be that there will be swag to be had at the locations, along with possible character meets, so you should have a pretty good time if you go, despite it occurring way to early in the morning. If you can, take pictures and/or video of what happens so that the people who are unable to go can live vicariously through you. And if you’re attending the Jones Beach event, say hi to my friend Siege (if he goes, that is).
