    I wish this wasn't fake...

    These game "conspiracies" are always fun, but are always false. Just last aweek Kotaku posted something on a Pokemon glitch where you could choose a Ghost as a starter (the sprite was the uncloaked ghosts from Lavender Town) and it would actually kill Pokemon. It's a great story, but a lie.

    First off, to pipgirl, I have dived into the code of San Andreas many times, but there is not bigfoot. Anyway, to the starter of this hoax? Looks like you should lay off the Jet pal. O.O ReCAPTCHA: knowingly indeed

    I havent played fallout 3 in a very long time, but i remember coming across several of these radio stations. But not knowing morse code i just ignored them. After reading this article and realizing ve seen them, i put in my copy of fallout three, and these radio stations do exist in game, i have come across five of them. They are Radio Station: Alfa Lima, Echo Foxtrot, Oscar Tango, Oscar Zulu, and Sierra Romeo. They exist, but i since i dont know morse code, and cant say if whether wat these people are saying is true or not as far as what the messages say.

    The messages have been translated to just be the stations asking for responses from the other stations in the area.

    And you're just going to listen to Bethesda's official response? They're hiding the truth! They won't let people know they can predict the future because it would cause mass panic. Of course they'll deny everything. It's in their best interest! /conspiracy theorist.

    TINFOIL! TINFOIL EVERYWHERE!

    Attention seeking retards. That is all.

    Sounds like someone who uses hallucinogenics has to much time on their hands.
  • H2A2I00 - August 4, 2010 1:26 p.m.

    any reason is a good reason to play fallout 3
  • JosefMotley - August 4, 2010 1:17 p.m.

    you can predict the future with ANYTHING. a pack of cards, or a half-finished game. seriously, they didn't even have time to get the crippling bugs out of fallout 3, i doubt very much they'd have time to program in a nostradamous complex too. either that or they spent all their time on that and not enough checking for bugs. either way, bethesda aren't getting any of my money or time for their next ugly glitchfest

    A Top 7 on video game hoaxes would be nice.....
  • zanebrandon - August 4, 2010 12:11 p.m.

    Well after playing for the 14 hours straight the one day,I didnt think it was anything. I just kept playing, but i did hear one of these stations and i was like.... WTF ooookay then and just kept going.
  • Cyberninja - August 4, 2010 12:08 p.m.

    as long as nothing else happens from the game i can live with 2 right by a game.

    Pokémon was the big one for false rumours. Which buttons to press to guarantee a Pokémon catch, if and how you could catch Mew without going to a special Nintendo event. My 10 year old brother was told that if you spoke to the Fishing Guru 100 times in a row he'd give you the Master Rod which you could catch Lv.99 golden Gyarados with. And tried it.
  • joshin69 - August 4, 2010 11:34 a.m.

    PipGirl, yep i was the same, up in the woods sneeking around thinking i was going to find it. The one thing thaty was in SA was UFO's though they went far to fast and to high to catch.
  • Clovin64 - August 4, 2010 11:29 a.m.

    God Damnit! I spent so damn long looking for Bigfoot in SA! From now on, I will never believe anything anybody ever says about a game unless it is confirmed on my beloved GamesRadar.com. P.S. You look very suave in your pic at the top of the article Justin.

    I think these stories are great. I am just waiting for the day that a news group picks-up this story and ends up making the headline 'Video-games linked to Gary Coleman's death. Is your child in danger?' Haven't you noticed that news casts seem only use the term 'video (pause) game' instead of just 'games'. Don't you usually reserve that pause when you need to get something casual to mean 'this is the..proper..shit'. It is also probably used to drag out the anti-tech people who would'nt understand that they aren't just any game, but a (queue Doctor Evil fingers) "video game", the source of all fucking evil. But yea, they are a great tribute to the internet, and its fun to watch people try to crack the mystery of this case. Who knows, we might need to get Professor Layton to come in and help :P.

    This is coldpasta on 4chan lol. One of the far better creepapasta stories i've read though; it's plausible enough to get some sort of media attention.

    Snopes.com isn't a conspiracy site, seriously, it takes five seconds to do this level of research.
