Marathon on Swedish TV tonight!
Posted By: Vid BoiDate: 11/9/01 8:32 a.m.

Tonight at 23:10, on TV4 in Sweden, they're showing a movie called "Beck: Spår i mörker" that has some Marathon in it... If there are any Swedish Marathon fans here who haven't already seen this movie, you should see it. You might want to send an e-mail to the director, to, and tell him it's not very nice to use someone else's game the way Marathon is used in the movie, without even teling people the real name of the game, or mentioning the game developer.

This could be a good movie, but some things ruin it - apart from giving people the message that playing Marathon turns you into a psychotic machete freak, they also use the word "frags" instead of "frag", in singular form. (Quote: "You don't understand! I am the next frags!") Definately not one of he better Beck movies. (But someone in the filming crew must have been a Marathon player, because they obviously knew how to alter the shapes file - they have added a "dead smiley" symbol on the back of the BOBs, and they have replaced a weapon with a very odd-looking, yellow machete. The Pfhor look the same though.)
