Well, guys, I have just beaten Doom2, in case you've been wondering where I have been. I was somewhat disappointed by the whole game, if you ask me. I mean, look at what you get for the 'sequel'-a few new textures, a couple new backgrounds, new sounds, new music (which I think sucks in most levels ;P), one, -ONE, PEOPLE- new weapon, and 7 new bad guys. I don't know who was the genius who said that this would be an actual sequel, but he was wrong. This is more like an extension pack.
Not that it's all bad, mind you. It does have it's good points, like the new weapon, the SSG, or Super Shotgun. I like some of the bad guys, as well. One of my faves was the Hell Knight. And the final battle with the Icon of Sin was pretty intense, especially with all those monsters just spawning out of nowhere and I couldn't figure out how to kill the Icon. Doom2 still has that great sense of nostalgia that I'm just getting used to.
Now, I've heard a great deal about Doom2 supporting all WADs/levels, or whatever they're called. And supposedly, Doom2 has support for all these "source ports" like WinDooMBooMZGL. (Fnord!) I think this true.
Now, I have seen plenty of levels for both Doom2 and Doom. I understand how one downloads them, but how does one install them? And how does one get these source port thiniges to work?
Ah well, it's good to be back!
