A declaration of victory or superiority. The phrase stems from a 1991 adaptation of Toaplan's "Zero Wing" shoot-'em-up arcade game for the Sega Genesis game console. A brief introduction was added to the opening screen, and it has what many consider to be the worst Japanese-to-English translation in video game history. The introduction shows the bridge of a starship in chaos as a Borg-like figure named CATS materializes and says, "How are you gentlemen!! All your base are belong to us." sic In 2001, this amusing mistranslation spread virally through the internet, bringing with it a slew of JPEGs and a movie of hacked photographs, each showing a street sign, store front, package label, etc. hacked to read "All your base are belong to us" or one of the other many supremely dopey lines from the game (such as "Somebody set us up the bomb!!!" or "What happen?"). When these phrases are used properly, the overall effect is both screamingly funny and somewhat chilling, reminiscent of the B movie "They Live".

The original has been generalized to "All your X are belong to us", where X is filled in to connote a sinister takeover of some sort. Thus, "When Joe signed up for his new job at Yoyodyne, he had to sign a draconian NDA. It basically said, `All your code are belong to us.'" Has many of the connotations of "Resistance is futile; you will be assimilated"
all your base are belong to us

A Japanese Genesis game called zero-wing got poorly translated into English. This sentence is now spread all over the internet.
English version:

In A.D. 2101
War was beginning.
Captain: What happen ?
Mechanic: Somebody set up us the bomb.
Operator: We get signal.
Captain: What !
Operator: Main screen turn on.
Captain: It's You !!
Cats: How are you gentlemen !!
Cats: All your base are belong to us.
Cats: You are on the way to destruction.
Captain: What you say !!
Cats: You have no chance to survive make your time.
Cats: HA HA HA HA ....
Captain: Take off every 'zig' !!
Captain: You know what you doing.
Captain: Move 'zig'.
Captain: For great justice.

All your base are belong to us" (often shortened to "All Your Base", "AYBABTU", or simply "AYB") is a broken English phrase that sparked an internet phenomenon in 2001 and 2002, with the spread of a Flash animation that depicted the slogan. The text is taken from the opening cut scene of the European Sega Mega Drive version of Zero Wing, a Japanese video game by Toaplan which was rushed and so was rather poorly translated into English, and is often regarded as butchering the English language.

The phrase 'All Your Base Are Belong To Us' is known as a "Gaming Phenomenon". It origionates from the game 'Zero Wing',with a very bad Japanese-to-English translated intro to boot. It is considered one of the worst translations in gaming history. Commonly seen in Multiplayer Games such as Counter Strike, Call Of Duty ect, usually in team gameplay, when one team totally defeats another (See : Pwnage), it will likely be said by the winning team, to dictate that 'All your bases' now belong to them.
However can also be used in a deathmatch gamemode, if one single player stands out above the rest (See also : owned). Sometimes is also followed up by the line (from the same game) "You have no chance to survive, make your time."

Also used when the Terrorists destroy the objective in the de_ (Demolition) gamemode is the line "What Happen?" followed by "Somebody set up us the bomb!".
These are all lines from 'Zero Wing'.
Use 1 :
(In Counter Strike: Source)
Terrorist1 kills Counter-Terrorist1
Terrorist1 kills Counter-Terrorist2
Terrorist1 kills Counter-Terrorist3
Terrorist1 kills Counter-Terrorist4
Terrorist1 kills Counter-Terrorist5
Terrorist1 kills Counter-Terrorist6
Terrorists Win!

Terrorist1 : All your base are belong to us.

Use 2:
Counter-Terrorist 1 kills Terrorist 1
Counter-Terrorist 1 kills Terrorist 2
Counter-Terrorist 2 kills Terrorist 4
Counter-Terrorist 3 kills Terrorist 3
Counter-Terrorist 6 kills Terrorist 5
Counter-Terrorist 5 kills Terrorist 6

Counter-Terrorist 1 : Who do all our bases belong to now?
Counter-Terrorist 2 : Yeh, all your base are belong to us!
Counter-Terrorist 3 : You have no chance to survive make your time!

Use 3 :

The bomb has been planted!
*Bomb Explodes*
Terrorists Win!

Terrorist 1 : What happen?
Terrorist 2 : Somebody set up us the bomb!

*Terrorists 1 + 2 proceed to spam microphone with laughter*
