Well somethinginthesea.com has recently updated to Mark Meltzerís study. Normal enough you might think, except for a pretty weird, evil-loooking lunchbox near the side of his desk. In case you havenít looked at the site recently, Mark Meltzer is the bloke whoís investigating these abductions of little girls around the world.
When we last left him, he had taken a very blurry picture of the Big Sister, which might been exciting in itself if it werenít for Game Informer plastering a great big picture of her literally days before the reveal on the site.
Anyway, after that, a year has passed (1968) and his own daughter got kidnapped by the Big Sister. His wife divorces him, blaming Mark and his crazy research. Heís then sent to a mental facility. When Mark gets out he goes to track the Big Sister down for REVENGE and because he wants his daughter back. He tracks her to Hudson River in New York and traps her in a net. Which clearly isnít effective because she slices through it and then smashes his leg, breaks his ribs and leaves 16 stitches on his neck.
Now, the Big Sister has broken into his office and left the weirdo lunchbox there. Meltzer thinks itís a BOMB, though why he doesnít get rid of it is anyone guess. Itís up to you to unlock this strange box/BOMB thing.
Which is something I have been trying to do, for about 2 hours now, gnashing my teeth in frustration and wasting loads of paper in the process. Mind you, I could just wait for someone else to post the correct combination on the net, but then thatís cheating isnít it?
In any case I think it could make a great Collectorís Edition Box for Bioshock 2. And I personally think itís a bit more intriguing then whatever heck Kojimaís doing.
EDIT: According to people clearly much more used to code cracking over at 2K forums, the message on the back of the box is (it repeats over and over again):
I can't rember my birthday do you remember my birthday I have a new birthday
Except no-one really knows what Big Sister's birthday is.
