    Wadders know this, which is why it's only really an option when they purposefully design the encounters to allow, or require for it.

    Encounters don't need to be specifically designed for it. You can easily use them all the time, they even fight each other.

    What we really need but don't deserve, are BFG zombies with the speed of Nightmare Pinkies and the health of a Hell Knight.

    Episode 4 was essentially Doom: Kaizo Edition. Even Doom II has more going for it than that.

    The only level in Episode 4 worth a damn is the second one, because it offers unique and interesting challenges.

    The rest is, sadly, forgettable garbage. Even the secret level.

    Second level is also one of only two levels in ep4 designed by Romero.

    Really looking forward to this

    You won't understand what's going on if you don't. Doom is a very story heavy game after all.

    This release wouldn't be as authentic if Romero didn't make you his bitch one way or another.

    Really curious how this turns out given that it's the original designer with the original tools, just 30 years later. There is nothing to hide behind

    I guess I’ll replay Episode 4 on UV, pistol start, and no saves before this is out, just to bother some of the unsavoury members of this community.

    Daikatana seems more appropriate in this scenario.
