As I've mentioned somewhere before, I'll declare this ARG as ended after the small sword-wave seal will reappear at Tagruato website again.

At least it would be very elegant way for signaling about end of an ARG without penetrate the meta level.

On the other side the story seems to be done, and Nikolai Roza cliffhanger could be the same cliffhanger like falling ChimpanzIII at the end of Cloverfield.

If they really will do something like Cloververse tales, then this ARG could be continued around the next Cloverfield movie.

Except wasn't that seal a TIDO thing, which would make no sense to this alternate timeline?

I think we actually could have done without the transmission from NR, I would have been satisfied if that was skipped but we still had that last communication from Howard thru the VM.

Yeah I agree the NR message was not necessary to the story, but I did like that they gave us something that we could all discover together, as opposed to the single person finds that have made up this ARG. I think if anything they saw a lot of complaints about how this ARG wasn't very inclusive and decided to throw us the SSTV signal (probably expecting us to struggle with it, which we didn't), which was very uncharacteristic of this ARG, but did fit into the HAM Radio Navy Background, so ultimately it worked.

As far as the ARG being over I could see it going either way, but I am leaning towards saying it is over. Although I would love if it continued..Obviously.
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
only possible conclusion/continuation I could see is finding out Megan made it to the Chicago Bunker

Sorry for being a bad rule follower Pixie, I apologize. I'm usually on mobile when I'm on this site.
As far as the ARG is concerned...
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
does anyone think that the ARG could continue with NR only to give us more insight/detail about the connection with 10CL and Cloverfield through the satellite/ISS program?

I really wonder if there is something that we are missing. The comment by Nikolai feels too open-ended. I mean, I know that he's basically affirming what Howard was trying to tell Megan, but since he talks about the two of them being the only ones who believe, maybe there is something to that? Maybe he has a webpage of his own out there somewhere, filled with the same kind of conspiracy ranting. Unless he had a bunker of his own and went in at the same time as Howard, he could still be updating.

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
It would be cool to see him reporting on the attacks, too. Since most of what went on on the surface was obscured from us during the movie, we don't really know much about it. There's a whole world out there to explore!

He came out of left field with that intermission, but one could infer they're friends beyond working together at the same company. Maybe he does have a site but he seems more collected, I would think of him as someone with specialized information who leaks stuff like that and not someone who goes out on a limb like Howard does and "connects the dots" with a bunch of seemingly unrelated events that fit a theme.
I am surprised he became an important character though, although I realize you guys were speculating it based on the employer pics already.

I'd like to see a movie or television series that ties everything together.
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
We start with the 1958 backstory to Super 8, discovering the alien cube ship in orbit and blasting it out of the sky with a nuke (I still have the Super 8 comic with the backstory). We move through the Super 8 story, alien goes home. We find out that Clovie in Cloverfield is an ancient creature that the aliens are aware of and the Tagruato disturbance woke him up. We then move through the events of 10CL and move on discover Tagruato's response, the US government's response, the Japanese government's response, and follow individuals who are working to piece everything together and discover the whole story. We could see the TIDO group and their research, and other individuals who have little pieces of each story and how they are working to bring the evidence together. Throw in a little weirdness from Sea Nectar consumption, and we have a winner.
(maybe Sea Nectar is the base ingredient to Marvels Super Soldier Formula and what Dr. Banner consumed before the gamma radiation Hulk out Cool )

Except,
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
again, super 8 is not in universe, there is *no* tying it together with these other two films. Said time and time again by JJ, just like he continues to tell people Clovie is not an alien. Plus, I'm fairly sure This film is basically an alternate timeline to the original Cloverfield in that the original didn't happen in this timeline, and yet we are led to believe these two are connected thru Tag.

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Rocket Poppeteers was a Slusho subsidiary and contained Sea Nectar as an ingredient. So although not directly involved, Tagruato and Slusho were around in the Super 8 story. It could be tied in to a greater extent.

By that logic, Alias, Fringe, Heroes, and Star Trek are also tied to this universe, because Slusho appears in all of them. There is a flaw in this line of thinking. Perhaps instead, we should just let the director dictate what is tied to what - and take what he has said at face value until told flat out otherwise.

I'm just saying it could be tied together, and it might be kinda cool if it was and we got a movie or tv series out of it.

Not at all. We have yet for this to happen:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Denise loses her cool and finally tells us and Harold that he killed his daughter, possibly after molesting her. Or drove her to suicide after the molestation.

Ha! Same here. I can't wait to read through the spoiler thread and see everyone's opinions. Until then I will probably just lurk in case of developments. This has been a lot of fun everyone!

That would an excellent way to continue the ARG, hinoai - with Nikolai deciding to 'share' with us whatever terrible things he and Howard already discovered...

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
And with all of us becoming the 'future resistance' against the 'alien menace', much like Michelle seems to be doing at the end of 10CL.


Still haven't gotten a chance to see the movie (*more sniffles*), so I'm tiptoeing through the thread, trying to be as 'un-spoilery' as I can.

*covering eyes, semi-peeking through fingers*
