Let’s Play Myth II: Soulblighter Co-op #25 The Forge

July 29th, 2017
Myth 2 #25 The Forge

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.

Soulblighter cowers in the roots of Tharsis, threatening to destroy the entire world. Alric must stop him!

This is a segmented run where we're helped, at various times, by regulars Ooga Booga and Renwood, as well as special guest, Paris. We start out giving Legendary difficulty a trial, but end up having to dial down to Heroic in order to get the job done.

In this segmented run, it turns out that falling rocks are the deadliest threat.

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:

DrBizz Runs Back Through ‘The Arbiter’ Level in Halo 2

July 26th, 2017
After some time off, DrBizz is back with a cool new trick on Halo 2. He had this to say about it:

Hello friends! Well, it's been quite a while since I posted a trick video but here is a project that was only streamed live and never put into a production video until now. This involves MCC on The Arbiter and a bunch of crazy physics skulls to travel way off course and actually go backwards inside the station from the banshee ledge where the heretic leader is later in the mission. It's a long run of difficult jumps, fall breaks and blasting through closed doors with grenade piles. Amazingly, the load zone trips work backwards allowing a very long travel and all sorts of things get triggered out of order.Thanks for watching, hope you enjoy it!

Also check out and follow his Twitch stream, where you can see him breaking and tricking through levels live!(MacGyver10 17:39:27 UTC)
