    Small inconsistencies aside fans of the halo franchise really should take the time to read the books, it brings a deeper appreciation for the games and the story line.

    For those that have read the books, specifically Ghosts of Onyx, do you think Nobel team is composed of (except Jorge of course) classified remnants of Beta company or the newly deployed Gamma company? I have to say they must be Beta's in order to have earned their ranks and not be kids anymore in which case who knows what other Spartans are left out in the universe with Ackerson Lying to Kurt and Gray team still out and about.

    Here hoping for more games and more books!

    Bungie worked directly with Nyland in order to keep just Halsey's journal correct.....Bungie is an exceptional group of people who have kept one of the tightest canons in video games today. Reading the books as well as playing the games will give you all of the story; it's just up to each player to be a better Halo fan than the other multiplayer only people.

    here s a question, if Cortana is some all powerful Forerunner AI, then why was Serina from Halo Wars almost exactly the same as her ?


    (In the Halo books) Cortana is made by Doctor Helsay, one of the 8 attempts to make an AI that looks and acts just like herself. Notice they are voiced by the same woman. Cortana is not a Forerunner AI

    Actually the books are good, and the story is pretty canon. I haven't found any errors with the story after reading most of Halo: The Fall of Reach. One of my favorite parts was Sigma Octanus IV, Commander Keyes defeats 4 Covenant ships only using the UNSC Iroquois without an on board AI, and that gets him promoted to Captain, then Master Chief discovers Engineers and Hunters on the surface.

    The reason you see Master Chief there is for a few reasons. In the book Halo: The Fall of Reach, he was supposed to be going with about 30 of the 33 or so remaining Spartan-II's to go capture a covenant ship(apparently Jorge is a Spartan-II and he wasn't there in time for the mission) so that they could find the covenant homeworld and kidnap one of their Prophet leaders, and just as the Pillar of Autumn was about to go into slipspace they got a distress call: the covenant was on Reach(which I noticed when playing through that part of the campaign on the first level). They then go back to Reach(and though I haven't read this far) I believe the Chief and some other Spartan-II's went to purge Reach of any data revealing the location of Earth. Then the Cheif gets picked up and he goes into Cryo-sleep, which is why he was on the Pillar of Autumn at the beginning of Halo 1.

    Reach is an extremely good game and very well thought out. The only thing I dislike about Bungie is that they just (*ending to halo 3*) leave Master Chief floating around in space in hibernation at the end of Halo 3


    But I always thought that at the end of halo 3 on legendary you see him floating towards a mysterious planet which I've always thought is a lead onto Bungie's earliest game 'Marathon', well that's my way of taking the story.

    i found an easter egg with a marine saying "Now we have to fight aliens!?! I can't take this anymore!" with a gun to his head. ITs in the hotel reminiscent of iron towers from Halo 2.

    People Bungie has said they didn't go by the book. Here is a quote from Bungie: "There's a ton of deviation outside of Bungie's canon that our fans and other writers have created. While we certainly had no interest in making a literal adaptation of "The Fall of Reach" book, we were cognizant of the event structure and the historical time line within that book, and we wanted to play nice with it as much as we possibly could."

    If you read the books, more likely it's Linda, because she was the one in cryo near the end of Reach, The Chief would never rest while there was still fighting to do.

    There are many books about halo, you should pick them up. They are really good. Even the second one that is pretty much the first halo game in a book, but you get to learn the side stories of everyone on Halo.

    I agree, great way to incorporate the 'chief. But I do have to agree with some others in saying that there are just a couple of things in the game that don't agree with the book. However Bungie created Halo so they have rights to change the cannon.


    Halo Reach IS NOT based on "Halo: The Fall Of Reach"! Bungie has stated that several times.

    Also, Burnie and Cery, "A-chief-ment Unlocked", lol.

    As several people have mentioned, the Chief was in space fighting off the Covenant ships and got picked up by the PoA before they took their blind jump.
    And as several people also have mentioned, it could be Linda, but I like to think that it is the Chief as he is one of the big reasons for the success of Halo :P

    Linda was on the station with Master Chief. She was put in to cyro befor they jumped to slipstream.

  • Dagnalis

    Definitely not Master Chief. He didn't go into cryo until the PoA left Reach. It's more likely to be Linda who's considered "dead" she's later recovered after the 04 installation is destroyed and Chief and Johnson pick her up in the longsword. She's the revived and goes to fight on Onyx with the other Spartan II's and III's.

    It couldn't have been chief i agree with everyone that it could be Linda but it wasn't chief

    Because chief was it on a space station fighting The Covenent

    Still would have preferred to find this out myself, Not annoyed you made the video, since I Can't aford it till Monday I figured I'd just keep off the AH main site till then. But "MASTER CHEIF IN REACH" on the front page is hard to not see.

    Couldn't you have just said "Halo reach ending "Easter egg" "?

    Storyline spoiler follows.
    Though, it's kinda well-known by now anyway...
    Pretty sure it is actually Linda, as she was put in cryo while being "dead," she had been wounded, and died, but brain-death had not occurred yet, so she could be saved when they had access to a proper medical facility, which didn't happen until after Halo: Combat Evolved's storyline.

  • fnckyou2

    If I'm not mistaken

    in the book "fall of reach", didnt master chief get on the pillar of autumn right before they took off to lightspeed?

    correct me if I'm wrong please.

  • odst4life

    You know if you only play Halo :1,2,3,odst and now reach, the story makes alot more sense.The books are dumb and halo is Bungies' story not some revisionist author.

    "The calm before the storm" is the perfect way to describe the Chief in cryo before he starts kicking covenant ass.

  • Frosty151

    Yeah It can only be Linda, all burnt up. Chief didn't go into cryo till they got away from Reach. I was afraid this would happen, they messed with the story line.
