Armed only with sticks, stones, and harsh language (redacted) Blackstar and Narcogen muddle their way through this horticulturally themed Marathon level.

Ok, not all the way through the video yet, but I just wanted to say it was [i]so[/i] funny when you ran away from that big group of Pfhor, and ran into Blackstar, ALSO fleeing froma bunch of Pfhor.
