If you've been participating in the Bungie fan community for the last couple of weeks then you've probably been aware of the curious link at Bungie.org's main page. Many speculated for awhile that it could have something to do with the coincidental degradation of the Core before its relaunch as R.net.

The tru7h was finally revealed as Freewill announced the creation of bs.bungie.org, a Bungie sightings archive.

A pair of new E3 wrap up articles, pulled smoking from my x-ray addled laptop. Mostly just more details on the Halo and Oni demonstrations, with a few things here and there that I forgot the first time around. Both, along with all the others, are posted in the Articles section, or you can go directly to them:

Just a quick update from the floor, courtesy of GameWeek's poorly defended computers. Same shows and demos as yesterday, though we'll have another two articles up tonight or tomorrow, for Halo and Oni both.

Additionally, according to the buzz around here, private showings of a new game have been going on behind closed doors. While we're unlikely to see it or extract any details short of shedding blood, the general feeling is that it will succeed in being cooler than Halo... whoo? Stay tuned.

Hi ho! I'm connecting from an expensive, timed connection so I can't say too much. However, if you're in the area and want to come out to meet a few other people from the online Bungie fan community you ought to read this post.

One more thing I'd like to post, for any Bungie fan who is at or planning to be at E3 today or tonight. Some of us would like to get together for a Gathering of Fans if we could. I've marked out about a half-dozen restaurants that aren't TOO far away from the LA Convention center (I didn't find any cybercafes, damnit) which could possibly be good places to hang at. Chances look pretty good that we could rope a few Bungiefen into hanging out with us there.

Sorry we're not being as posty with the news guys. We're running our butts off and trying to report whatever we see to you all. You may actually see more material in the articles and forums for the time being. Anyway... I've got a few more things for you, posted in the forum to allow some discussion. I may clean things up a bit more later on for articles or something. Major thanks go out to Kelstek, Hiro and Mark Levin for their help with the chat last night on RHL, and everyone had some great questions for us.

Reported first by HBO, Jamie Bartels also sent me a copy of a response he received when trading some E-mail with Peter Marks of Bungie.

Just in time for E3, Bungie has moved their in-testing io.bungie.net into the spotlight at www.bungie.net. The new site, which features channels supplied by sites in the community, is easily customized to individual tastes, and depending on the channels you choose, packed to the gills with useful content. It's very easy to create a channel set that lets you keep tabs on the headlines all over the place, or just the sites that interest you in particular.
