marathon

Tycho offers us a deal: if we let him out of jail, he just might not not kill us. Wait, what?

The power generators the Pfhor are using to keep us, the BOBs and Tycho restrained are (where else?) down in the dungeons. Who knew?

More ledges, more lava, and more secret exits. Blackstar and Narcogen encounter strange ephemeral creatures and die horrible flaming deaths while trying to continue the Durability narrative and find a way to become wormfood.

The third time's the charm for Blackstar and Narcogen in the last iteration of the electric sheep levels. We could go back to earlier timelines, but instead we press forward.

Oops! We missed a level. Thanks to zdude0127 who pointed out that we went ahead and posted Naw Man He's Close without going back for this secret Aie Mak Sicur variation, Carroll Street Station. More deaths by juggernaught await!

Tycho wants us to flip some switches. How novel! Then we run into Blake again, sort of-- his BOBs are trying to kill us with fusion pistols.

NOTE: Marathon Infinity goes on hiatus after this episode and will return in June.

In between each of Marathon Infinity's many timelines lie the dream levels. This is dream level that follows Electric Sheep Two, much in the same way Electric Sheep One is followed by Where Are Monsters In Dreams, and like that level, the layout is strange and the only enemies are invisible-- in this case, compilers. This level can lead back to the next level in the Rage chapter, Naw Man He's Close, or to the secret level #29, Carroll Street Station.

In between each of Marathon Infinity's many timelines lie the dream levels. This is the second of the Electric Sheep variations. This level can lead back to Acme Station or forward to Caroll Street Station (itself an Aie/Aye Mak Sicur variation).

Cody Miller (pinkynarftroz on YouTube) demonstrates what we didn't (or rather couldn't... perhaps even wouldn't) do in the original Marathon: use the grenade launcher to climb a sheer wall. The latest version of Aleph One is actually able to duplicate this behavior when working with the original map files now-- the M1A1 scenario that was adapted from the original game for the Marathon Infinity engine can't, which is why some invisible ledges were added to some levels to allow certain places to be reached.

This water processing facility clearly isn't full enough of slime, since Durandal wants us to open a door and let some more in. Time for some swimming! Just mind the Juggernaughts.

Thanks to everyone who has watched and listened to ASE over the past few years-- this is our 100th episode!

Special thanks go to Blackstar who is playing Marathon with me, to Bungiefen Miguel Chavez and Cody Miller who have been co-hosts many, many times, and to Trindacut who first convinced me that Rampancy should have a podcast and cohosted many of the early Halo-focused episodes.

Enjoy!

Durandal has sent us to a Pfhor orbital repair facility to blow up some stuff! Sounds like fun. Prepare to drink vacuum!

Durandal wants us to push some buttons. What a surprise! On the other hand, there's cyborgs, but no oxygen.

Another secret level where we can gather weapons and ammo, but not quite so simple (or as empty) as the previous ones.
