Re: Will we ever get a hint #2?

Any hint at a water game is a red herring. They drop these occasionaly just to watch people over-analyze them. The t-shirt logos seem to tell us nothing. I wouldnt expect a hint today anyway, not when most people are going to be away from home busy with various parties/whathaveyou. I WOULD expect one tomorow. If they dont release one by monday i can assure you there will not be a new hint before kickoff.

Because they are on CD right now, watching this thread, and laughing at our torture.

Re: Will we ever get a hint #2?

Or maybe they are trying to tell us we already guessed the game. People typically only give hints when the answer is still undiscovered

I give them until wednesday. we WILL be receiving a hint #2 because they labeled the first one hint #1.. they would just say the 2012 game hint if there was only one. I dont expect one today or tomorrow on account of the holiday. But I do expect one monday tuesday or wednesday.

On the topic of a water game: If we have one the GDC will toy with us and make our robots use super soakers! darn you GDC!!

Re: Will we ever get a hint #2?

The next hint will be game hint #3. Everyone will go crazy trying to figure out which of the fake hints was hint #2. http://www.snopes.com/college/pranks/livestock.asp

Re: Will we ever get a hint #2?

Maybe through the elongated period between the first hint and the second hint they're trying to show us that they still haven't fixed the all of the long field connection issues?

Re: Will we ever get a hint #2?

If you ever see a hint about a water game, remember this.

After you remember that, then you can continue speculating .



Happy New Years to people who live far East enough!!
