Some kind of HUGE creature has been discovered partially exposed in ice in the far north by Russians. A coverup of the story is underway and most of the video has been confiscated. Steve thinks the powers that be want to keep this story hidden and extract it’s DNA. It’s difficult to make out exactly what the video shows except the closeup of the creature’s scale and fur. Whatever it it is HUGE and dwarfs anything yet discovered.

Guess Steve’s not as smart as his brother, Dan! smile

Several ‘colossal’ creatures found, within weeks of each other, after laying hidden for centuries and just on the eve of the launch of a game called ‘Shadow of the Colossus’; what are the odds?!

I mean, you just can’t buy publicity like that!

Oh, wait…

The onus of proof is on the person making the extraordinary claim, not the people who think it’s too extraordinary to be true, remember…

Rather there’s no proof it isn’t a hoax. There’s no independent verification of the find. There’s no other evidence of Arkady Simkin ever existing. There’s no evidence for a company called “Polarneft Oil & Gas”. There isn’t a single fact about the find that exists anywhere except in relation to this find, a circumstance that points to the site, its “author” and the find itself being a work of fiction.

As for “Taurus Major”... Wow, a colossal bull-like creature found just weeks before a game is launched featuring exactly the same creature (http://www.filerushnews.com/images/album206/aaa.jpg); what are the odds?!

It’s a pity, SotC looked like a good game - one I would certainly have bought. Now I am so sick of just about every forum from Digg, to Slashdot, to MoH filling up with corporate shills pushing this shit at me that I’m not going to touch it.

No, he said there’s no record of any of these things being true.
The person involved is non-existant, the company cannot be found, and, I think most importantly, NO-ONE else has picked up on this whatsoever.
It’s a hoax.
