Tues. July 14, 2009

Hey guys! Time to fill you in on what's been going on. First off, we finally put out a new podcast episode! In it, we talk about PBK, the new Mythic maps coming with ODST, plus our reviews for "Up", "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", and "Public Enemies". Right after we finished recording the podcast, we acted out some stuff for the next episode of Project Blackknight (which, by the way, should be coming out before the summer ends).

Next up, we had our first Community Game Event on Bungie Day (7/7). It went off spectacularly! We will defiantly have another one of these before summer ends. If you were one of the unfortunate few who were unable to attend for whatever reason, don't worry. I made a little video of it so you can see what went down. One more, longer video of the event will be coming...very soon.

Something that also took place on Bungie Day was the release of The Essential Marlin: Volume 1 CD! If you've been keeping up on the blog, you'll know that it is a CD of original music (and an exclusive outtake) created by me for Marlin the Elite. The CD will set you back $12.99. Most of that goes to Cafepress for the supplies, but the rest (all 3 or 4 bucks a pop) goes to TP so we can make cooler videos for you guys! There are 20 tracks that last around 40 minutes, so it's kind of a win-win situation. So head on over to the store (cafepress.com/marlintheelite) and pick up your copy. If you want to hear some samples of the CD first, we have a few songs up on our YouTube page for you to check out.

Also, we've been releasing episodes of "Random Sauce". The latest one (which was just uploaded 30 minutes ago) happens to be my personal favorite. This leaves us with only one more episode that we haven't aired yet.

To conclude, I will be going away on a trip for about 4 or 5 days, so there won't be any new videos during that time. However, I will try and post one more video tomorrow before I leave.

So now, I leave you with some awesome Marlin fan art by Morgan :)
