Halo and Half-Life

The Combine in HL are the Precursors, the Advisers are Precursor larva and haven't achieved their full forms, as their lifespans are extremely long. We know the Combine have extra dimensional travel and occupy multiple parallel universes already, so it makes perfect sense that they can occupy the 'Halo' universe as well as the HL universe. The Xen lifeforms are like the Flood in that they were biologically engineered by the Precursors. Unlike the Flood, the Xen lifeforms were discarded as failures and placed together on the Xen home world until the Resonance Cascade occurred, teleporting a large amount of them to Earth where they helped break down human society as the Combine quickly assumed control. Gordon destroyed the Nihilanth, the overlord of Xen, allowing the Combine to tame their creations once again. The G-Man, having access to Precursor technology, uses his seemingly nigh-omnipotent powers to travel constantly between universes to make sure all the events go according to plan. For some strange reason, the Precursors are bent on making humans the new leaders of the 'Halo' universe, while keeping them down in the 'Half-life' universe. Eventually, G-man meets with Master Chief for the first time, just as he did with Gordon and Shepard, and gives him similarly vague, ominous messages about certain events that are about to unfold. What this accumulates in is Gordon eventually using Combine technology to travel to the Halo Universe or being placed there by G-man, and becoming outfitted in Spartan armor and fighting alongside Master Chief in undercover missions to stop the "unforeseen consequences" from occurring. These unforeseen consequences may involve the re-emergence of the Flood, which may combine with the Xen lifeforms that are brought in by Precursors (imagine infected Headcrabs?) and a cosmic moral and political dilemma involving who is the enemy and who is ally and what the Precursors' true initiative is for their seemingly contradictory history and philosophies.

  • No you can't think about it the Halo and HL universe just make sense to be combined I think I've thoroughly explained enough but if you think something wouldn't work tell and I'll fix it.

  • I'm detailing how Valve and 343 could successfully merge their stories into one story, I think it makes a lot of sense because there are parallels in both universes it just makes a lot of sense and would be fittingly unpredictable with all the build up with G-man's mysteriousness and the Combine apparently occupying parallel universes. Also, inside G-man's suitcase could be...the Organon.

  • Wait, are you drawing parallels or are you saying Half-life equals Halo?

  • The Combine are even said to have the ability to travel between parallel universes it all makes sense! The Precursors from the Halo universe escaped being destroyed by the Forerunners by traveling to a parallel universe with their most advanced technology, where they began to take control of the humans they created. Perhaps, after entering the HL universe they seed Earth once again with life? Or perhaps there were Precursors in this universe as well that seeded human life. Either way they wait, for a long long time until the resonance cascade occurs and then come down to assume control of their creation, but its all part of a plan, to finally take down the Forerunners in their home universe and allow humanity to assume the mantle as humanity is easier to control, and then disappear once again, to enact their final plan, even more sinister than their tyranny on Earth in the Half-Life universe. G-man is one of the main people driving these events forward, his origins are mysterious and tied in with his relation to the precursors. Master Chief, Gordon and perhaps Shepard and various other "important" individuals are part of his/their plan. The Borealis, the Aperture science research vessel which apparently contains powerful teleportation technology could be what once again breaks the rift between universes and connects the Half-Life universe and the Halo universe. The Precursors use it to travel back to their home world located somewhere outside the Milky Way and Gordon finds himself being interrogated by the UNSC, telling his story and what he knows about the new aliens that have appeared. He becomes a Spartan (orange armor with a lamda symbol) and joins up with Master Chief to try and figure out this new mysterious cosmic predicament.

  • The Borealis is what could take Gordon into the Halo universe, as it is supposed to contain the secret that possibly allows the Combine to return to their homeworld. [Edited on 12.28.2012 3:39 PM PST]

  • And like literally like, imagine Gordon coming into the Halo universe, and becoming an orange Spartan, how AWESOME would that be?

  • And given the Combine advisor's appearance perhaps they are Precursor larva, as The Primordial was described as being very insect like.

  • Yes listen, it makes so much sense, and I'm not saying G-man is a Precursor of they look like humans but maybe he is just their tool or even something greater.
