Let’s Play Myth II: Soulblighter Co-op #14 With Friends Like These

February 4th, 2017
Myth 2 With Friends Like These

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.

The Deceiver thinks he can get the Trow to help us fight Soulblighter if we beat them in a capture the flag game. Either that, or we could just kill them.

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:

Commisioned Art Posters for Halo Wars 2 Ahead of Launch

February 3rd, 2017
For the upcoming Halo Wars 2 launch, 343 and Microsoft commissioned some pretty fancy art in poster form for the six initial leaders from the game. I'm particularly swayed to the side of Anders and the Shipmaster, but all of the posters are pretty amazing, really! Details on picking these up is coming to the Xbox and Halo Twitter feeds apparently soon!(MacGyver10 17:02:52 UTC)
