Let’s Play Myth Co-op #03 Siege of Madrigal

January 30th, 2016
Siege of Madrigal

The Legion runs a distraction attack into the wight-infested town of Comfort. Overwhelmed by wights, we eventually downshift into Simple difficulty to get this mission completed. Hopefully for the last time.

We're playing the next of Bungie's famous games, the Real Time Tactics fantasy wargame, Myth. Set in a mysterious land of cyclical war and destruction, Myth lets you command an ragtag army in a desperate battle against the forces of the Fallen Lords.

Due to the tireless work of many community members over the years, the Myth engine has been modernized to work on current operating systems, although you'll still need a copy of the game's data files to play. Check Ebay.

For the engine itself as well as texture enhancements, go to Project Magma:

There's also multiplayer metaserver available for competitive carnage:

A bunch of other Myth-related downloads are available at The Tain:

Halo 5 Brodians from Mashed Is About What You’d Expect from ‘Bro’s’ in Video Games

January 28th, 2016
I feel I play this team at least once a week in Warzone matchmaking, but I feel they were even more prevalent in Halo 3 (so at least that's a plus!). With Halo 5 Brodians from Mashed, you get the tea-bagging, bromancing and language you'd expect from playing 'bros' in any video game.(MacGyver10 23:16:24 UTC)

Let’s Play Myth Co-op #02 A Traitor’s Grave

January 23rd, 2016
A Traitor's Grave

We're playing the next of Bungie's famous games, the Real Time Tactics fantasy wargame, Myth. Set in a mysterious land of cyclical war and destruction, Myth lets you command an ragtag army in a desperate battle against the forces of the Fallen Lords.

The mayor of nearby Otter Ferry would betray his citizens to the Dark. We intend to stop him.

Due to the tireless work of many community members over the years, the Myth engine has been modernized to work on current operating systems, although you'll still need a copy of the game's data files to play. Check Ebay.

For the engine itself as well as texture enhancements, go to Project Magma:
