Half Life and Portal Connections
Can anyone tell me what Apereture Science is doing about everything on the surface. I mean come on, The world is under siege, You dont test and test and test when the kind of stuff is happening. And also where would Chell go after she left Aperature Science, The Combine are EVERYWHERE. Can anyone give me any information about this?

Same world, different time.

They're just games.

Don't get all worked up over it...

GLaDOS killed everyone in Aperture, remember?

If you're referring to the end of Portal 2, it's pretty obvious the Combine aren't on Earth.

I guess you have a point

Spoiler Alert:
Unless the grassy plains at the end is a smartly created illusion and Chell is still in Aperture.
Anways, this isn't relevant, but I think the Borealis ship might be the main connection between the two game series. You can find the Borealis in Portal 2 (and get an achievement) in Aperture. In one of the Half-Life games, some of the humans and Combines are looking for the Borealis. It is presumed that the Borealis has a large portal device, like a larger version of the Portal device used in Portal 1 and 2.

What if Borealis has time machine?

I guess we will never know, no episode 3, no half-life 3, no portal 3.... *curls up in the corner and weeps silently*

that would be a cool game mix

I think that Portal 2 takes place shortly before the beginning of Half-life 2, on the same planet, and whilst the Combine are growing. A reason that no Combine technology is sighted at the end of Portal 2 could be that you are in a wheat field, symbolically the opposite of the Combine's intentions; the Combine cannot occupy every space on Earth, and Aperture Science might happen to be a place which they have not discovered.
Portal 2 possibly takes place hundreds of years after Half-Life 2.

Many years later Chell is awakened again, and informed that she has been in stasis for "9. 9. 9. 9. 9. pause 9. 9." This implies that centuries, perhaps millennia have elapsed since the events of Portal however, most likely it has been only 10 or so years and the computer is malfunctioning. Since it is implied the facility runs on nuclear power, it's unlikely more than a few years have passed (considering the average life of a nuclear reactor is 40-60 years) and that the general decay of the facility and lack of maintenance has damaged the reactor's systems, leading to a meltdown.

She was in stasis room.
A Dud Jul 25, 2013 @ 6:23am 
The beginning of the game mentions that Chell's been in suspension. I'm not 100% sure how stasis works.

FIRST portal 1 and half life take place at the same time,SECOND at the end of portal 2 chell in in a field but gordan freeman is at white forest and ALL combine forces are trying to kill gordan freeman or finding the borialias(soz for spelling) and the next half life will most likely feature the carecters from opposing force or blue watch(expancions for hl 1) eg barney.AND FINALY Gman and hiis mysterious benifactors are not just on earth but are waging war and confilct all over the univerce because who givea a sh@t about earth compaired to zen were protozoa so gordan freeman will find chell and get the last remaining source that knows where apputure science is and a possible door way to BLACK MESA. hope this provides 3 mins of reading for you ...
