Guy on reddit claimed he found Gordon's last Easter egg. https://d4.reddit.com/r/Doom/comments/6bri4j/new_ost_easter_egg/

I thought I found a half-ouch face in that same song once but I couldn't be sure if it was real or if my mind was just struggling to pull out patterns from the noise.

 

You can see some progressive blends I did of the actual ouch face over the suspicious part of the spectrum here:

Unfortunately I lost the one that was just the spectrum.

IDK if this was mentioned, but I believe the Mancubus' death animation could be a small nod towards Doom 64's death animation, where the spine is left in view as the other parts break down.

Marty Stratton said something to that effect once though he didn't call out Doom 64 by name so it left it confusing as to which game specifically he was referring. It'd be cool to have pics of both side by side to compare.

Early on, there is a door that appears to have been constructed by Vault-Tec from the Fallout series, I can't wait for crackpot theories about how the games are now officially in the same universe.

Although they seem to be from the same timeline but did the great war caused them to invade earth ? Makes no sense really. And how UAC is active while the world is destroyed by Nuclear Bombs ?

 

So putting Doom 2016 & Fallout in the same timeline may not work...

I just want to know who's head is on a spike this time around, since Marty said there will definitely be one.

Whoever finds it first will be king.

COMMANDER KEEN!

Looks kind of small and unimportant for something that births huge ass demons. Looks more like a fetus to me.

Perhaps, but here are the similarities:

* Four arms (the lower two are a bit hard to notice here but they are there and have hands, they're just held close to the body)

* Insectile abdomen

* Vaguely human-like skull structure with two eyes

* Tail-like projection at the bottom (here enlongated; in the "adult" specimen, it's covered with some metal which projects down a bit in the same location)

* Vent-like areas on the lowest segment of the abdomen.

* Posture clearly meant to suggest upright levitation.

* Similar jaw line with small lower mandible, an indentation just behind that, and then an area where the skull fans out.

Yup that’s definitely the Mother demon back in the day. Doom 2 final boss confirmed!

the fetus has six arms though, so I'm not sure, but another thing, is that there are three dots on the back of its head/neck, where the horns could grow.

Well here are some screenshots I have taken of the Mother Demon from Doom 64 for comparison and speculation.

Imps kinda look like insects too. For all we know Imps start out as larvae.

The silhouette of the fetus thing definitely gives off a Mother Demon and I read something before that stated that the team worked hard making the silhouettes of various Doom things resemble their original design. I'm gonna go with yes. It's a Doom 64 homage.

 

@Piper Maru so, yes? Mancubus death anim is also Doom 64 homage?

There's even a Doom 64 Snapmap based on the Absolution map that uses that model as the Motherdemon, or rather, it's referred to as the Embryo demon for the snapmap.
