Podtacular 483: The Leak

Ben finally made contact with FERO at the end of the previous episode and things couldn’t have gone more South how Ben was expecting their plan to go.  Leaked footage of the Master Chief disrupting a monumental peace talk seemingly favoring the alien representatives and kidnapping the human representative has had many people talking about him.  As Mashak reveals more information about the Spartan program and it’s treatment of the outer colonies, it’s not long before humanity is up in arms about what the Chief is doing.  FERO reassures that while Master Chief is taking the brunt of the blow in the short term, he will be vindicated and ONI will be the ones under scrutiny.  The panic generated from the first leak was enough to get the pieces moving for ONI brass and UEG Senators to set up a meeting to discuss what’s going on, which is right where they want them.

ASE Ep. 156 Marathon Tempus Irae 17: Ameseno Italy

May 22nd, 2015 by narcogen
Tempus Irae 17: Ameseno Italy

We're starting a new Marathon adventure-- this time fighting the Pfhor in Italy of the past in third party scenario Tempus Irae!

We brave a dark and foreboding castle with hidden watery secrets to find the next Leo manuscript.

Tempus Irae 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:

http://source.bungie.org

Tempus Irae and other third party scenarios for the Aleph One engine can be downloaded here:

http://source.bungie.org/scenarios.php#more

We use irons' Co-Op script, which gives weapons and ammo to both players if either picks any up, and prevents weapon loss on death (so items can't be destroyed in lava or slime). The script also allows one player to teleport to a destination set by themselves or their partner, in case co-op players run into a problem a solo player would have to restart for.

Tempus Irae has its own spoiler guide:

Queen's Wrath Bounties Part 2

Destiny's 1.2 patch is live with lots of changes, large and small, including some preliminary Queen's Wrath bounties to get us ready for the full launch of the House of Wolves expansion this week. We take on the next few of these.

In this episode we revisit the starting area of the Cosmodrome and discover the Fallen have moved back in with some of their new toys, as well as a new Ghost. Then we go back to Venus take on Beltrik the Veiled again (but we did that just for the experience, so it don't count) and then on to the Moon to face down Saviks, Queenbreaker.
