Gentlemens and Laddies:
I was checking my calendar today when I noticed the THIS COMING TUESDAY, DECEMBER 21st WILL BE THE 10th ANNIVERSARY OF THE RELEASE OF MARATHON!
But could I be wrong? Consider:
Matt Soell said that Marathon shipped on Dec 23.
Date: Fri, 23 Dec 1994 18:56:37 GMT
I guess it's theoretically possible that Bungie shipped Marathon on the morning of Dec 23 and it got to "a bookstore in Louisville, Kentucky" that evening. But I wouldn't bet on it.
Hamish, himself, thinks it shipped on Dec 21st. That's good enough for me.
Reagrdless, next week you should set aside a little time to recall the Good Old Days (if you were there back then). Everyone should ponder on the fact that if it wasn't for a story idea about a cyborg warrior, some AIs - one of them crazy - and some creepy alien slavers, we all wouldn't be here right now and most likely the world would have ended anyway.
Considering the advances that have been made in games since 1994, I can hardly wait for Dec 21st, 2014!
P.S. We do know that yesterday, 10 years ago, Marathon was effectively finished:
Marathon is finished. We've slept <10 hours over the last four days. We all put our hearts into this, not to mention the 14 hour days for months on end, so we hope you like it. Last polygon filled 6:05 PM Saturday, December 14. Carnage ensued closely thereafter. Er, I mean sleep.P.P.S. It was a Wednesday, NOT a Saturday, btw.
