Free Marathon Release

The Trilogy Release Website (thanks Jay) offers downloads and details on the free release of Marathon and Marathon 2, Bungie's seminal first-person shooters. Included is the release of Marathon, Marathon 2, Marathon Infinity, editing utilities Anvil and Forge, as well as game manuals and edition tutorials in Adobe Acrobat format. The Trilogy Release FAQ has details on the release. The Mac .sit-format files are currently available, and apparently there is an effort underway to create a PC-friendly version of this release compatible with the Aleph One Marathon-based OpenSource project.

Oddly enough, Pathways into Darkness was also made by Bungie, and was the first FPS they ever made. It even has a mention of the Jjaro, who played a vital role in the Marathon trilogy and are widely assumed to be the 'Forerunners' that made the Halos.

Doom was more popular, Marathon was a better game. That's how it normally works.

Personally, I found the shotgun in Doom to be less satisfying than *dual-wielding* double-barrelled shotguns in Marathon 2. With those babies, you could cut a path through any alien horde.

And no FPS has yet to have the same level of humour generated by the assimilated BoBs - genetically engineered aliens who looked identical to the ship-board civilians and would run up to you and explode. Remember the map "God will Sort the Dead" from Marathon 2? How many people gave up on trying to tell the real BoBs from the Simulcrons and just ended up blowing everyone up?
