Let’s Play Myth II: Soulblighter Co-op #06 Gonen’s Bridge

September 3rd, 2016
Gonen's Bridge

We're playing the next of Bungie's famous franchises, 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.

Garrick and his remaining troops must stay ahead of the army of the Dark and reach Gonen's Bridge before Dwarves blow it up. Ooga Booga once again leads us bravely into battle, as we choose to take on the horde instead of running.

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:

September 2nd, 2016
ChrisTheeCrappy let us know that IGN has a video up of Halo 5's Forge on PC. The 'narrator' doesn't seem to know too much about Forge, and gets some things plain wrong, but it's cool to see how the UI and mode will work!(MacGyver10 22:36:00 UTC)
