I got into Marathon when I got a "Mac Cube" from Aztech, and it had a demo (0.0) on it. I had heard about Mararthon in some magazines, and I liked what I played. I also found an M2 demo, which I don't think I have anymore. cut to years later, I try to buy the Action Sack but can't find it becuase its too old. Instead, I find the comunity, find the Trilogy release, beat all three on easy, and play on Apple talk 3-4 times butI rarely get the chance to VS becuase my buddies only want co-op. But then... Jun 24 1006, my 18th b-day. I get a Mac Mini. One of the first things on my mind to do with my sudden OS10 ownership is see if A0 had online stable yet. Now I can't

mac cube!??? omg omg! Thoes go waay back with me!

I think we have like... all 8 discs of mac cube, but me and my sister would play all the ancient game/demos on disc 5? or somthing.. the one with the games,
But I do remember playing marathon 1 for the first time with the demo, (like.. when I was 5) and it was the most realistic game and the most scary one there, I actualy had to stop playing it here and there... but when I eventualy was 7ish, I completed the demo!, and continued with the full version,

yah.. mac cube.. I think I still have some of thoes CD's around my house

Mac cubed was how I got started with marathon. I can't even imagine how many times I played duality on that thing, we would have 8 person tournoments (2 at a time, thats all the demo allowed) untill we got motion sickness [MTongue]

My brother introduced me to marathon. I watched him play it untill I was able to reach the keys and things. I actually 'learned' the keys at least 5 years before I learned to type.
The only choice you have is the one I've already made for myself. Disappear into the darkness. Then make them fear the shadows.

Why does almost everyone here seem to be under 25?

Well anyway: hope you have fun playing. You probably wont ever see me on the meta server because I havent really played much marathon since 2000 (I never looked at bungie the same way) and ever since I started playing again I can only hope that I can ever come within 1/80 of my near perfection of every aspect of the game that I achived from all that practice. I swear that I will find some way to make bungie wish that they had never abandoned, make that BETRAYED me.

P.S. dont let the door hit you on the way out

P.S.S. I have way too much free time now that summer is here

P.S.S.S.Im spending way too much time on the internet
