Right, some of you may think I'm crazy, but apparently Microsoft has either hacked or created a site called ilovebees.com.

Check out the site. Its been hacked. Its all covered with Halo messages. Some images too. When their code was opened, they showed up the release date for Halo 2, perhaps. Go to ilovebees.blogspot.com, and check out the latest message. Also look at the 700+ comments for that message too. Its made up of people who are decoding the messages.

I don't see any Halo stuff on it, but there is this:

HALT - MODULE CORE HEMORRHAGE

Control has been yielded to the
SYSTEM PERIL DISTRIBUTED REFLEX.

This medium is classified, and has a
STRONG INTRUSIVE INCLINATION.

PHASE 1 COMPLETE: Network throttling has eroded.

In 9 days this medium will metastasize.

COUNTDOWN TO WIDE AWAKE AND PHYSICAL:
22:20:53:54:079

Make your decisions accordingly.

THis is far from a consiperacy. Bungie was not hacked, rather this is a clever marketing ploy that has been around for a couple of weeks.

Here (http://www.gamespot.com/news/2004/07/27/news_6103575.html)


And yes, this site has everything to do with Halo 2.

Hmm, I just read that from gamespot. It seems to be very twisted and something is going on. I dont really know what to say about all this. I guess we will wait and see what happens.

Nah, it's just another trick from Bungie. Bungie likes to do that kind of stuff...

If you Don't believe me, don't. But Bungie.net linked to it, i believe or one of their fansites, so it's not just some illegal hacking scheme. My guess is that the stuff that isn't about Halo 2 was made to make us believe it was hacked. By cortana! Just like the Mysterious Cortana letters. Go figure out what i mean, that aughta keep ya busy for a while...

DUH!

Look at the Gamespot link, everything is there. Nothing strange is going on, this is just a marketing ploy. Simple as that.

Hit the nail on the head. This is just a marketing tool/media hype.

Some people actually believe Halo 2 is coming out early because of this site. I don't forsee Bungie pushing anything out early.

This actually quite old news. :rolleyes:

It might be the date of a demo announcment? Maybe a demo will appear in the Official Xbox Magazines!

I REALLY doubt it. It's possible they'll releasea demo, but probably not, since EVERYONE knows about Halo 2 already, they don't need a demo to create hype for it.

Ermm.. Those who think I'm crazy, LOOK AT THE OTHER PAGES OF THE "HACKED" SITE. See those words that mess up the site? They are from Halo. I'm not sure about which part of Halo it is from, for I am not a player of it. However, the people in the blogspot, who commented on the messages, DO KNOW ABOUT HALO, and they are either trying to crack the code and finding out as to why the site was hacked (which may lead to nothing; for several leads have been found that makes the fact that the site was actually hacked seem dubious. It seems that the site was actually created by MC to start all this hype). In the blog, there are people who are either trying to crack the codes, people who are pretending to add to the story (look at wasp777 in the blog), or people who are trying to look for the hacked site's owner (Dana). Well... Have a good time until Halo's relase date. Here's a sample of what WE found in the site (some Halo players SHOULD recognize this:



1st Lt. Sorenson: Oh my God. If the decrypt is right-
Capt. Greene: I know.
1st Lt. Sorenson: We have to drop the mission. We have to bug out of here right now and get word back to HQ. An evac on this scale they need every second. Jesus. I was stationed on Troy.
Capt. Greene: I'm not... I'm not sure.
1st Lt. Sorenson: Ma'am?
Capt. Greene: There's a bigger picture, Rolf. Several.
1st Lt. Sorenson: The mission... This mission is more important than millions of lives? Oh my... god.
Capt. Greene: I'm just saying, the choice isn't as easy as you might think.
1st Lt. Sorenson: You know, I was so curious when you got your orders...
Capt. Greene: And then there's the strategic view.
1st Lt. Sorenson: For the first time, I'm not sure I want to know what's in them.
Capt. Greene: Even leaving aside our particular mission, there's the issue of letting them know we've broken their codes. If we bug out and scramble home to warn HQ about Troy, people like Standish will say we've already compromised a huge tactical advantage, and that mounting a big evac operation will completely give the game away.
1st Lt. Sorenson: Not even Standish would let them glass a planet if he knew it was coming. ... Oh my God.
Capt. Greene: I am not privy to strategic conversations at that level. But if we run home and present the decrypt, we put them in a tricky situation. If they act, they risk letting the enemy know we have a toehold in their C-and-C. If they decide that strategic advantage is too great to risk and don't act, then you know Section Zero will be all over them. Zero's wanted Standish forever.
1st Lt. Sorenson: I...I understand. It's so much easier for everyone if we don't tell them. But...wait a second. Don't you have family on Troy?
Capt. Greene: That can't be part of the equation, Rolf. You know that.
1st Lt. Sorenson: Jesus.
Capt. Greene: I think we have to report it. Our job is to gather intelligence: it's HQs job to decide what to do with it.
1st Lt. Sorenson: God, I'm glad it isn't me making that call.
Capt. Greene: Don't feel too sorry for them, Rolf. Even Admirals have to earn their pay.

Not necessarily one of ours.

But at the same time, parts of me being moved around, emptied out. As if under general anaesthetic, dimly conscious, half-aware as the surgeon cuts off my feet and sews them onto my shoulders. She opens my head with a medical hammer and sand spills out.

That was my nickname. That's what the rest of the crew called me when they didn't call me ... whatever my name was.

The Operator.

I wish I could remember their names.

totally different kind of memory all of a sudden, floating up like a bubble from deep water, then *pop* on the surface of my mind. All in black and white for some reason, faded out, or just time bleaching the past like it does, time is hard that way, if you-

stop. stay on task, girl.
so *pop*, and I'm...

playing on the beach, very young, making a castle out of sand. It's a good castle, I'm smart, I'm really smart and I'm good with my hands and the castle is beautiful but the tide is coming up, I'm making dikes and moats and outer walls, getting a little desperate here this castle means the world to me it's way better than my brother's, but the tide is rising and rising, the tide is always coming up and no matter how hard I try to save what I have made, sooner or later the spiders wash over it and melt it down I'm losing the memory already I can't see myself was I wearing a dress or overalls or ...? There's a boy on the beach next to me but a wave comes up foaming with spiders and takes away his face-

oh.

we're made of sand.

we're both made of sand.

uh-oh.

I will stand firm. I will hold my edges and remember. I can do this. I know how to remember things, even through drugs and torture. seek evade reveal resist. I will not dissolve.

There are people who love me. I know that even though I can't remember them. I will not be forgotten. I will not be forgotten.

There are people who love me. There must be.

here come the spiders.

Phasmids.

I have to signal, I can't stay stranded here. But if I somehow am operating behind enemy lines, I don't want to draw attention to myself, either.

Therefore, I shall be a phasmid. Phasmidia Elegans, they call me-scourge of the sandbox.

God I hate it here.

Phasmids.

FIELD EXPEDIENT DIRECTION FINDING
"Find a straight stick about a meter long and stand it upright on fairly level upright ground. Mark the tip of the shadow cast by the stick: wait 15 minutes: mark the shadow again. Draw a line from the first mark through the second and some way beyond. Stand with your left foot on the first mark and your right on the end of the line. In the northern hemisphere, you will now be facing north, and can recall the other directions by their relationship to north. In the south, contrariwise."
Hm.
No stick.
No sun.

MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY

First thing I should do, make a signal.

The crew will come get me if they can.

Head is full of sand and it's hard to think.

But they won't stop looking for me.


I'M HERE I'M HERE I'M HERE


I'd fight for them. I'd die for them, any

of them. I would never abandon the crew.

They won't abandon me. They will come.

They will come for me.

Okay... So Bungie and Microsoft are planning to invite alien forces and take over the world to start monarchy with the inventor of Mac as the king?

I thought that was Hellboy...

Oh well, Halo's not me interest

If you dig hard, you will find out that August 24th is the release date of the next OXM Magazine. Go to the IGN boards, they have basicly figured it out.

BTW: Look at my sig closely, I have had it for about 2 weeks now

Yes, its pretty much known everywhere that August 24th will be the release date. Especially if Bungie perpetrated this, for if it is true, then they've left a glaring clue on purpose (found in the code in one of the messed up pictures of ilovebees.com. It was written something like this, can't remember well: aug24 halo2 (and something else)). I wonder if Dana (supposedly the owner of ilovebees.com) is actually a person of Bungie, for someone said she bore a VERY STRONG resemblance to one of them..?

The IGN board is filled with a bunch of nitwits.

A lot of "glaring" clues have been left. This does not mean it is going to be released on the 24th.

Bungie themselves said a demo would not be released until the game was already in stores btw.

Not the first time Bungie has done some kind of of alternative hype thing....


Although, do expect an announcement on Aug 24, or is there a Halo2 movie on the OXM disc released Aug 24???!!!

Sabretooth
08-05-2004, 10:45 AM
After some private research, I come to the conclusion that Dana is NOT related to bungie in any way. The site is apparently hijacked by a Halo fan, a relative to Bungie or by Bungie themselves.

The site says, 6 days on the home page today, in other words, August 10th. Also note the date 24th August, as the countdown on the homepage probably points there.

Doomie
08-07-2004, 09:18 AM
Er guys, after some research on my part, i discovered that the link to Ilovebees.com is in the official Halo 2 trailer. So it wasn't a crazed fan, and it wasn't illegal. Come on, if bungie hacked a real site, they wouldn't show it to the entire world, and what do they need hackers for anyway. So either bungie created this site and made it seem hacked to fool us, or paid the owner...

Sorry for reviving a bit old thread, but this jsut had to be said.

That is, if someone didn't say it before me.
