A request by Bioshock456.
This is based on the sequel to an early Bungie Software's game, a vector based first person shooter concerning a cyborg onboard a besieged colony ship called Marathon. On your mission to destroy the alien menace you were aided by three AI computer programs: Leela, Tycho, and Durandal, all of which were suffering a malfunction which allowed them to become self aware (called 'Rampancy'). Unlike the other programs which were content to just help the player out and fulfill their tasks, Durandal instead teased the player, ruminated on philosophically questions, and eventually began trying to meditate his way into godhood.
The second game which this trailer is based on takes place seventeen years after Marathon. The alien threat from the first game is back, and seeking a weapon on a planet among the ancient ruins of a forgotten culture. For his own reasons Durandal send you and a contingent of colonial marines to stop the aliens for obtaining the artifact, all the while taunting the player, making up poems, and seeking ever greater power and enlightenment.
Durandal didn't speak in the game. What he said was portrayed via text on computer consoles the player character found on his journeys. I guessed that, being a computer, Durandal would probably talk like voice program. The lines are actual lines Durandal delivers to the player in the games.
Hope you enjoy it! Maybe if they ever finally make a Halo movie, they'll give this rich story a shot.
