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.

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.

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:

Ahh well, no new name for us... according to a Bungie employee, the word on the third screen in the E3 movie is actually censored . Dang Bungie mind games... still, if they're censoring it, it must be interesting. Looking forward to seeing the uncensored version one of these days.

The Database was beginning to look a bit useless, eh? Three new articles have been added in the last week:

  • Marathon-Myth Connections
    Submitted by Kesh, this article looks at some possible connections between Marathon and Myth, and how they may relate to Blam.

Shortly after making the post on Friday (and feeling real good about myself), I realized that my uncanny gift for stating the utterly obvious had manifested. Yes, it says Blam! , and yes, I am the last person to have figured that out.

That humbling revelation off my shoulders, on to the interesting part. Apparently, the video was censored in postproduction (or censored prior to recording... whatever), and the words Blam! and Dink were placed on the two monitors. However, nobody is quite certain what the third monitor says--the letters are too small to make out.

  • A new poll at www.bungie.net, asking you to decipher the mumblings of another Bungie employee ( frog blast the vent core ?).
  • Marathon's Story takes a look at some Marathon sounds in music, and their possible origins (it's more mundane than you think ;).

After looking at the frame from the E3 video b.b.org posted, something jumped out at me... I managed to fend it off, though, and I'm fine. First, the thing itself:

Then, the thing after a few scales and unsharp masks in Photoshop (hey, I'm a novice at this, sue me):

game: 

As reported by Marathon's Story, Bungie has posted a behind the scenes E3 video which may contain a screenshot from a previously unannounced game. It's on my overnight download list, so I can't comment on most of it immediately, but b.b.org has posted a frame from the movie that shows the screenshot in question.
