Just when you thought there was no news, it turns out there was... was, sigh...

Anyway, it turns out an item retracted on the Marathon's Story page was a bit more interesting than I'd initially suspected, and it's generated an interesting thread on the b.b.org forum.

game: 

Well, not much in the way of news to report this week. Nothing at all really, though some interesting discussion about various things still have the forums going (but forums are always like that ;).

In the lull (and thanks to a new notepad and related To Do list), I've dissected the old poll and put up a new one, one directly related to this quiet period before the announcement.

Hopefully MWNY will be bringing some excitement our way...

In an announcement made earlier today, a unidentified source (not anonymous, just indecipherably named) dropped a bombshell announcement: Kap is getting his comet back.

Kudos to Thoth, who pointed out a massive revamp of Bungie's Oni pages.

The first thing that comes to mind is, aptly enough, whoah . And the second thing is hmm, I wonder if there's any Blam teasers hidden in here ... damned to read past everything forever, I guess. Step right up, folks, and try your luck!

game: 

After some discussion with various people about the possibility of Blam being used in a Sony commerical, a few interesting points came up.

First, why would Bungie have given Sony (or even Apple, for that matter) a unannounced game for use in a commercial that highlights a completely different product? Money, perhaps, but one must also consider that Bungie has had some bad experiences with stolen beta's in the past, and a studio is hardly the most secure environment in the world, especially for a game as confidential as Blam is turning out to be.

game: 

Bit by bit, we stray from the topic... anyway, for the Hotline faithful out there, CPHL is back online and offering a fairly rich gathering place for Bungie oriented folk. Just be sure you read the agreement when you log in (that way, you're less likely to do as I always do and reflexively hit the Disagree button instead of the Agree one... damn reflexes).

That IP addy (shamelessly cut and pasted from the Townhall! bwa hah hah!) is 165.82.104.162, and guests are welcomed.

game: 

Mojo of Halam, who pointed this out to me, summed it up best: heh...just when you look away.

A report handed in to bungie.org is raising some eyebrows about the use of Blam in an upcoming iMac commercial (stop by and read the report for the low down). Certainly an interesting possibility, though it is heavy on the speculation side right now.

platform: 

After a prolonged lack of an online presence, Badlands is back up and running, nestled in a cosy new directory on the Core. We're still updating the maps and scripts, but things should be back to how they were pretty soon.

So, if you're after some quality Myth maps, stop by and check out the new digs.

game: 

According to latest reports, I still have a few hours to update before people break out the torches and pitchforks, but no need to procrastinate...

Between the MWC tournament (yes, BoT actually fielded a team), the ongoing Myth projects, and that damn thing called life , I've been a bit busy. Mal has an even better deal, though--he's neck deep in exams, but at least the end is in sight. Anyway, updates... hmm, not much news to update with, but hey, you've gotta try anyway... and yes, I will refresh the poll soon, I promise.

Kudos to Trinity and Cunbelin, who both pointed out a comment in a recent Onicore interview with Oni level designer David Dunn:
