Podtacular 441: The Pax Prime Lockdown

September 15th, 2014 by theguardians@podtacular.com (Dust Storm)

Two weeks ago, Pax Prime was in full swing in Seattle as we heard of the news that Lockdown, the remake of Lockout, has officially been added to the list of Halo 2 Anniversary Maps coming with the Master Chief Collection. We got our hands on the map on the show floor that weekend and were very pleased with the additions and the feel the map retained from the original Halo 2 classic. The Pax Prime Showdown was a spectacular to watch with Team eXcellence taking home the first place prize. During the Halo panel, we got more information on Nightfall, Forge in Halo 2 Anniversary, the new music and audio being introduced in the remastered Halo 2 Campaign and even witnessed a proposal on stage (She said, “Yes,” BTW). This week, we are privileged to have community member Hoss Sauced join us on the podcast.

Master Chief: The Story You Never Knew

September 12th, 2014 by halo@bungie.org
So... Treesicle published 'Master Chief: The Story You Never Knew' back in May - but the first I heard about it was today, when ChrisTheeCrappy mentioned it on our forum. It's an analysis of the Halo storyline... with special care shown to our friendly neighborhood green-clad Spartan. It jumps from jokes to serious thought with abandon - but it's pretty solid thinking (except for maybe the lumberjack stuff). Go watch! (Louis Wu 22:03:59 UTC)

ASE Ep. 130 Marathon EVIL 8: Magrathea

September 11th, 2014 by narcogen

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.

Emerging from cryo, we're sent down in a small shuttle to the marine resort, apparently called Magrathea (although this name is never mentioned aside from the level title, and no other overt references are made to Douglas Adams' luxury planet-building factory).

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?

In any case, some more technical issues with this level. During playback, two camera angles consistently went out of sync at the same point, making them unplayable, so after an early point there's only my chase camera and Blackstar's first person camera. Sorry about that.

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:


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


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.


EVIL has its own spoiler guide:
