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.

Two levels ago we were manhandling moons. Then we had a pool party. Now we're in the sewers doing platform puzzles. Things are not going well.

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:

We go from tinkering with planetary systems to splashing about in the pool. Guess which one is more fun? Actually it's a close call.

The mysterious Felix has an ingenious, inscrutable plan to mess with the Mystics by ruining their planet's magnetic field.

A special task force awaits to help us take out a special Juggernaut. If only we weren't so impatient.

Six chips. Six slots. No waiting.

No, actually there is a lot of waiting while we wander around trying to figure out how to find the chips and all these slots, and then grenades start passing through sprites and geometry, and that's never good.

Our job here is to destroy the facility (built inside a volcano) by causing it to fill with lava. Aren't volcanoes already filled with lava?

After failing to capture the Mystics, we get dumped into cryo storage and shipped off to a Marine resort for cyborgs. Seriously. However, we won't see that in this level-- it's just the lift.

Since Marty O'Donnell just posted a version of the Halo MWNY trailer from 1999, (view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XL0hrSSUpHw ) I thought I'd splice together a side-by-side comparison of that version and the one from Bungie's own YouTube channel, which I remember as being the version actually shown to the MWNY audience and captured in multiple shakycam videos.

Bungie's version is on the left; Marty O'Donnell's version is on the right.

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!

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.
