Because Halo wears its love for James Cameron's Aliens on its sleeve (and its legs, and its face), this machinima video splicing the classic sci-fi flick with Halo's HD remake is about as perfect a union as you're going to find.

If you think you've seen it before, you might have! Haliens did almost exactly the same thing years ago, and was one of the first machinima videos I ever saw.

This, then, is a remake of an old video, made using a remake of an old game.
