Let’s Tour Destiny in Minecraft

May 31st, 2016
Destiny in Minecraft

Blackstar and Narcogen visit the Tower in Destiny, but something feels a little different... because we're in Destiny on the Crucible Minecraft server!

Infered5 posted about it last week on the Destiny subreddit so I thought we would have a look.

You can get the details from the server's web page, here:

Right now the Tower, the Reef, a big chunk of the Cosmodrome and some of the Moon are already in the game, as well as certain Hive and Fallen enemies and 40 or so weapons. There's glimmer to gather and engrams to decode!

Note: we have added some music and sound effects from the game to enhance your viewing experience; these are not present on the server as the game is running vanilla Minecraft 1.8.8 on a server with certain plugins and a custom texture pack, but no client-side mods.

Let’s Play Myth Co-op #20 Across the Gjol

May 28th, 2016
Myth 20: Across the Gjol

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 a ragtag army in a desperate battle against the forces of the Fallen Lords.

Narcogen and Blackstar have to bravely hold a hill in the swamp all by themselves against hordes of advancing Thrall, Soulless and Wights. Also: the most clutch Journeyman ever.

In this episode we're once again using the high definition tagset, made by Ooga Booga, Renwood and Road. The Myth Myth HD Total Conversion v1.31 provides higher resolution units.

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:

Intro and outro Music "Into the Breach" by Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori from Myth The Fallen Lords.
