Marathon Fan Pfhor Over Half a Decade

Post Jul 24th '18, 01:34

I first heard of the Marathon series when I was 14 or 15 and I remember the first time I ever beat Ne Cede Malis. Oh the nostalgia of beating that level.

As of lately I have been wanting to co-op with someone on Rubicon, Phoenix, The Gray Incident, or Eternal 1.0.3 Lite. Where should I go to suggest a cooperative multiplayer game? :rolleyes:

You could try the marathon discord. People there are occasionally willing to play random scenarios. But you'll have to be very patient trying to put a game together.

Ah. I prefer going it alone but was considering an experience of sorts. Or somehow I could start a Yuge server FFS.

Depending upon scheduling, I might be interested in playing any or all of those scenarios co-op, or for that matter the original trilogy. I’ve been playing this game off and on for at least twenty-one years and I don’t think I’ve ever actually played a co-op net game.

I should probably join the Marathon Discord at some point.

Welcome, also, since I think I forgot to say that before.

This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain. If you can’t lick ’em, join ’em. If it hurts, repeat it. But to praise despair is to condemn delight, to embrace violence is to lose hold of everything else. We have almost lost hold; we can no longer describe happy man, nor make any celebration of joy.” —Ursula K. Le Guin, “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas”

Welcome! I'd love to try a co-op game one of these days, although I generally can only play on Saturdays (which might easily be Sunday for you depending where you live) and tend to have absurdly high ping.

I should probably be free most Saturday nights/early Sunday mornings, so that should work. (I will probably not be up to participate in anything past about 3-4am EDT unless I’ve just stayed up for it.)

I'll plan on hosting either a Rubicon or Phoenix co-op game on Saturday night or so. I will set a time that we can agree on. :p

Welcome to the Pfhorums!

Hope your game hosting works out for you. Either way, good luck.

('over half a decade' made me laugh considering we have some fans here who've been playing Marathon for... nearly three decades? I'm not one of them, heh)

EDIT: Just realised I pocked a several months-old thread, whoops. ^_^

Not even a month old, actually. And in any case the first game will turn twenty-four on December 21st, so not quite two and a half decades old. For my part, though, I've probably been playing off and on since late 1996 or early 1997 (my earliest contributions to the Story page are sometime around March 1997, IIRC).
