Durandal Is GOD

Has anyone seen the similarities between the Fusion Pistol in Marathon and the Plasma Pistol in Halo?


Halo takes place in the same universe but takes place 200 years after the launch of the UESC Marathon Colony Ship.

Does anyone other than me see the striking similarity between Durandal and 343 Guilty Spark?

Cortana will likely go rampant in Halo 2 or perhaps Halo 3.

I have played both halo and marathon and loved them both. Not sure if any of this has be menchond (to much here to read in one sitting)but first marathon had a flame thrower and halo was suppose to and second if you have played halo you know the MC is not an andriod or like because he takes his helmet off!

thats totally ridiculous. plenty of games from the same companies have easter eggs from previous games.the only people who would call halo marathon 4 would be marathon fanatics who cant seem to handle the fact that the marathon series is dead, as in not being continued. besides the armor is not mark v armor. Thats the prequisisit to the mjolnir armor that mc and the spartans use in halo.and the rocket launcher, that just says that bungi liked what they did and wanted to keep things similar. besides diddnt they just finish 3 marathons. i mean, thats a lot of time in wich they were using the same development methods on the same platforms using the same ideas. its not hard to belive any of this but is no way is HALO a marathon. if really want to know read the first two halo books their both approved by bungi.

You know, I think several people here have made very credible points. I have played both games, surprising for a dedicated PC user, and they bear quite a remarkable similarity. (I STILL hate those idiotic one-button mice) In any case, both games are landmark software, and should be treated as such. Wether or not one is the other is rather irrelivant, I think. Perhaps it is a batter idea to spend the time playing the games, rather than debating their lineage.

Hi, i'm not trying to be mean or rude or anything but i came across this website and it really got to me. i'm a really big fan of Halo. i don't know what "Marathon" is but by the pics i see, it seems like Halo and Marathon do have some similarities but Halo has much better graphics then Marathon and why would u want to call a war-killing-alien game "Marathon"? if i just heard that name and not seen the game, i would thought it's about marathons and stuff. no, Halo is a better name and it sounds more interesting. wut really got me going was when i saw pics from the game and where you guys found stuff belonging to the Marathong game. so what? maybe Bungie just wanted to put some memories of that game on Halo for Marathon-lovers. jeez, it's nothing devastating, no offence. i love playing Halo but this just really got me mad. it's like as if wut Bungie did was a crime, but really, no. and i'd like to say that Kahless is right, why the hell care if they have similarities? they still have differences here people. oh, and uway 44 is totally right. frig, if u people could see these things, u guys are paranoid, no offence. Roger also has a point there about the Master Chief. even though i don't know these people, i agree with them cuz they have they same point of view as i do. everything Widow Maker said is true. Ed also is right and speaks the god damn truth, unfortunatly for u guys. whatever u guys find wrong with Halo, i just have one thing to say bout that: get a life! play the game, have fun, and forget about Marathon. it was played in the 90's and i'm pretty sure there's a lot more people that have the same opinion that i do. to me, just because they seem to be wars going on in the same universe is no biggy. i don't care, at least they happen at different times. also, i haven't played or read or even have a game with a great storyline, characters and more like Halo. i think Bungie is very creative and yes, probably did use somethings from Marathon to pay homage. why? probably because Marathon was becoming less popular and probably people wanted something better! and what they got was fabulous Halo!!!!!!! i can't wait for Halo 2, and i'm positive that the Halo series will so be so much funner and better than Marathon!!! no offence but it's my opinion. i don't want to get anyone pissed off or anything but u can't get mad for what i said. sry if i said something that made u guys angry.

Halo is Halo. Iv'e never heard of marothon before, but from the pics at the top of the page it looks like the graphics realy, realy, realy suck. my opinion is this, the same as widow maker's "so what if there are "easter eggs" until i see that damn easter bunny i'm going to call Halo by it's name and not Marothon 4." i believe those little eastereggs you all call were put in there because Halo's creaters (bungie) used up all there ideas and so they 'borrowed' some stuff from other games so that they could spark there inmagination again.
P.S. If you have Halo p.c. please join my server, it is called "Grim Ripper" and to all of you who haven't played halo, get a freaking XBOX, i mean come on, there is technology that can literaly have a car drive it's self and you people are still stuck on mac get a grip.
P.P.S. please visit http://halosn.bungie.org/wallpaper.html?item=478
if you look at the Halo fan art there is another ship in the UNSC navy that has more weapons than i've ever heard of, it's called the Phelios.

THE GRAPHICS SUCK BECAUSE IT WAS MADE YEARS AGO ON A MAC, WHEN THAT WAS THE BEST LOOKING GAME THERE WAS!

Kotaru

Okay, I think this is pretty convincing...but Im still staying with the fact that Halo is Halo. Hell, if you look at the Scorpion (tank) on the back theres a special little Easter Egg....the GameCube logo. You may need to use a pistol or Sniper Rifle, but its there. This doesnt mean that Halo has any future on the gamcube or anything, its just an easter egg. I think they put all of the Marathon things in there for all of the fans of Marathon to find them, and some memories as well.... The Bobs in Marathon -do- look a lot like Spartans in MJOLNIR armor, but Master Chief's name is John...
