marathon

We've finished with the canonical Marathon Trilogy and are moving on to third party scenarios, starting with EVIL. In this scenario, a UESC ship from Tau Ceti runs into a spatial anomaly that sends them far away where we encounter something dark and evil.

In this episode, a computer terminal we'll visit over and over again tells us that General Dire got promoted over us. What a jerk!

EVIL can be played, like the other Marathon games, using the open source Aleph One engine which you can get here for Windows, Mac and Linux:

Marathon Infinity's "Vidmaster Challenge" features remixes of three levels, the first of which is Try Again from the original Marathon. Each level includes grey, upgraded enemies.

A few notes about our playthrough:

We played Marathon and Marathon Infinity on Normal difficulty. We increased the difficulty on Marathon 2: Durandal to Major Damage to compensate for our somewhat higher familiarity with the levels of that game.

With the final level completed, the W'rkncacnter is defeated (or at least still contained) and Durandal/Thoth let us know their current thinking on the fate of the universe.

Our repeated destination is revealed to be a Jjaro space station with the power to contain the destructive power of the Pfhor's Trih Xeem weapon and prevent the release of the terrible, unknowable and unpronounceable W'rkcacnter. Can Blackstar and Narcogen find and insert two uplink chips in order to save the universe?

Foreshadowing both the cinematic glory of Gladiator and the ignominy of Star Wars Episode II, the Pfhor pit Blackstar and Narcogen against an array of the Pfhor empire's greatest warriors. Flaming death results!

Blackstar and Narcogen are captured again briefly only to be rescued by enraged S'pht'Kr laying waste to nearly all the Pfhor in the vicinity.

No need to wait for strange aeons for Blackstar and Narcogen to die, even in a level with hardly any enemies! In this case, we're bringing the plot of Marathon Infinity to a close by completing the activation of the dormant S'pht AI, Thoth, so he/she/it can call in the S'pht'Kr cavalry to kick Pfhor butt.

It seems we've been rescued from the Pfhor by a partially-activated Thoth. All that's left to do is investigate this underground power source... but let's go look for ammo, first, shall we?

Blackstar and Narcogen face a profuse proliferation of insidious switches and spooky level design, not to mention a passel of fusion infused BOBs sent by the devilish Durandal. Also there's a spot of lag.
