Ahem.

My comment from the "What would you like to see happen next" post....
What I'd LIKE to see- some plot, connection with the show, maybe an interesting mystery or two...
I'm a cynic. If the "game" to date is any indication, I expect Dec. 15th to be the day when you are allowed to download and print your test results as some kind of "official DHARMA evaluation" certificate (like the "membership cards" at the beginning), then NOTHING. The DWY website will simply display the premiere date for the show.
Honestly, the "game" so far leads me to expect the least. Nothing points to a continuation or expansion of the game. I really don't see how people would expect the "game" to suddenly be good, or interesting. So far, it has been a pathetic, token effort. I expect more of the same.
Get off my lawn.


...sometimes, I hate being right.
I don't care about the Q&A, that's why I look at websites like this, to see those Q&A things with minimal time wasted on my behalf.

MASSIVE HOODLUM FAIL.

I am just about to mail this message:

Dear Damon and Carlton,

I think addressing this question, and this question alone will save you the trouble of trawling through the many emails you will no doubt receive regarding the ARG.

This was my (and many people's) first experience with an ARG, and we were very much looking forward to it. Instead, all we received in return for our eagerness was over 4 months of constant delays, screw ups, chilidsh puzzles, and last but not least, a poorly written excuse for why this ARG has suddenly gone down the toilet.

So, the question is: WHY?

What was the point of all of this? Why would you start something, surely knowing that it would be a failure, but stringing many dedicated followers along?

The only way I can think to describe this at the moment is a complete and utter slap in the face.

I know this way seem like a long-winded whinge, but if you two have any respect for the fans that have followed your show and the ARG's and have made them a success, you will address this query and the LOST/ARG community with the respect and the over-due apology it deserves.

How about:

Dear Darlton,
It has come to my attention that you may be in need of assistance in preparing future ARGs. I have some great ideas, regarding how to involve the fans, keep them interested and maintain the flow of communication. I'm willing to give you these ideas for a minimal sum, and some of them you may have for free. I feel I have the ability to create characters that people will come to care about and want to help them in their endeavours. I also have the skills to work your TV program into the game, all this at no extra cost.
I think you need me, more than I need you. :PP
Look forward to hearing from you.

or is that too cheeky? ;) :roll:

:rofl: Just e-mail them that, Rosalind. But I'm afraid there won't be a next ARG, based on how this one turned out.

"I have no ideas for any sort of story for this ARG!"

I put a lot of time and effort into last year's ARG. I really enjoyed it. I got my hopes up this year for nothing

Yeah, and by the way, should this be called an ARG? "Miniclip: the LOST edition" is more appropriate.

It beats the ARG for almost any other show... Because almost no other show has an ARG...

But this one really did have a silent GH.

As in ARGGH.

As in it was CRAP.
