Things about Doom you just found out

Recommended Posts

Oh yes, I noticed many "Doom sounds" in movies over the years. Especially the camel grunts from the Imps, as well as the platform movement sounds.

all of them are specifically from Sound Ideas, a fairly well known sound library. much easier in practice to buy a precollected library of animal sounds, industrial machine sounds, etc so lots of places go for libraries like Sound Ideas.

So I am now on my 3rd playthrough of Final Doom because the first run was just to complete it.  Second run was to check if I still hated it.  And this run is because like a dumbass I forgot about the secret levels in both Plutonia and TNT.  I am now finding out that I really REALLY fucking HATE Heavy Weapon Dudes and Revenants!

Such as? It's fitting, I learned something else about Doom today.

 

I mean, I already knew it uses sounds from everywhere but didn't know some are present in various movies too, particularly the zombie sounds.

Speaking of stock sounds used in Doom and elsewhere, World of Warcraft (pre-Cata at least, idk about retail) has tigers/big cats making pinky demon sounds and stags making imp sounds. I didn't find that out just now though.

It's even in The Force Awakens as the sound of Rey's speeder powering down.

You will hear that mostly on low budget-B movies which i watching more than i should. The more obvious movie where i heard that is some hungary(i think) sci-fi movie from 2004, if i only remember name of the movie :/

I just found out the Arachnotron plasma sprites are actually in Ultimate Doom, just unused.  I guess just leftover from the alpha builds.

Not sure.

 

I remember reading something relatively recent saying that they actually planned to include Doom 2's enemies in the original, but never got to it due to time constraints.

Arch-vile, mancubus, revenant were planned from the beginning but not finished in time.

Chaingunner, pain elemental, arachnotron, and especially Hell knight were added because they were simple editing jobs resource-wise and could fit some unfilled niches.

Fascinating. So in this regard I suppose one could say PSX Doom is somewhat closer to id's intention, even though it doesn't feature the AV as they could not do him justice.

 

Despite this, there still were enemies who were going to show up in Doom 2 only. Hm. But I wonder about the SSG, if that one was meant to only be introduced in Doom 2 or it's something else they had to scrap in the original.

This isn't so much something I learned, but something I realized. Two of the three Doom bosses were given weaker variants in Doom II. The Baron of Hell got the Hell Knight and the Spider Mastermind got the Arachnotron. Yet the Cyberdemon doesn't. This kinda saddens me.

The cyberdemon is a demon with huge guts and an arm cannon that fires volleys of three rockets.

The mancubus is a demon with huge guts and two arm cannons that fires volleys of three pairs of fireballs.

Maybe she was talking about how they look in appearance.

Not just appearance as they don't even have the same feel.

In the Xbox version of Ultimate Doom, the NIИ secret in E4M1 is inaccessible, which also prevents the barons guarding it from noticing you and having any chance to be killed. My run of that level was going so well (you know, by E4M1 standards) and now I have to start over. >:(

Which Xbox version? This will need to be verified.
