Myth: The Fallen Lords

by Johnny Law

Part 4: Tutorial - mission

Like most games until recently, Myth has a separate tutorial mission that has nothing to do with the story. It comes complete with an encouraging and mildly creepy instructor voiceover. (Which, by the way, is definitely not the same voice as our campaign narrator... just so you don't get alarmed.)

For this video, I basically played the tutorial and free-associated a bit on things that we might want to get out of the way up front. Basic game mechanics, some remarks about the engine tech, Bungie history and trivia, and comparisons with other games released around the same time. Then during editing I've spliced in additional images and video to illustrate my ramblings.

Hopefully some of you will find this material interesting. Regardless of whether you love it or hate it, just FYI the actual mission videos that make up the rest of this LP will be different.

(P.S. If you're generally interested in this stuff but you really couldn't care less about my little slide show on how the Myth IP changed hands, just fast-forward until the red Digress-O-Meter is empty.)
