New details on the Halo 3 ARG; ARG you excited yet?


10:55 PM on 06.21.2007




Now things are getting interesting. The Halo 3 web site has been updated and shows several links to five different servers. Only server one has been unlocked so far and when you go into the server, a what's to be believed as a Sentinel is rotating in a circle. The Sentinel has various clickable emblems on it and clicking on one of the symbols brings up the above video. 

The video contains various images from the Halo universe and snippets of text from what is believed to be the ancient Forerunner race. From the clues gathered so far, I'm starting to believe this ARG is going to tell us some key information regarding the Forerunners and their horrible little science project, the Flood.

This video is just a dissected version of the first video. It slows down key parts to help reveal a better picture of what's going on.

The Hushed Casket has been doing a fantastic job staying up to date and finding out all the little bits and pieces. Other than the video, there are also a couple of pictures and text files the Hushed Casket was able to find. The first image is a close up of bacteria, possibly Flood. The second image shows the stars as well as the now famous glyph (I wonder how soon until someone gets a glyph tattoo). Here are the two text files:

THIS IS MY FINAL ENTRY, AND I AM LEFT WITH ONE HOPE
THAT ONE DAY, SOMEONE, ANYONE IS AROUND TO WITNESS THIS WARNING
{//}
KNOW THAT A THOUSAND OTHER PLANS WERE TRIED AND FAILED
{//}
KNOW THAT ENERGETIC AND TENACIOUS AS LIFE IS
IT HAS AN ANTITHESIS JUST AS POWERFUL
IT IS THAT THING THAT WE MUST OBLITERATE

Obviously, until the other servers open up, we can only truly guess at what's going on. So what do you think the clues are leading up to?

This Destiny trailer makes me want to get my ass to Mars

In Destiny, the tops of long-lost skyscrapers poke through the surface of Mars which means, presumably, we'll have to work our way down through them to reach whatever lurks below. I'm not expecting to find anything good down...more
