Yesterday I stayed up kinda late since I was in level 7 of episode 2, and I really wanted finish it. It took me a couple hours to figure out where the hell a certain key was that opened the bloody way, but I eventually figured it out.
I was using rockets sparingly the whole episode since I assumed that the last two or so episodes would have a lot of those...um, I'm not sure what the enemies that sorta look like mutated anthropomorphic pigs that shoot green fireballs, and to my surprise, I ran into maybe around 5 of them.
Then episode 8 come up, and then I really regretted saving up so many rockets, since not only does it start you out with a blue armor, but it also gives you more rockets than you're ever need.
The boss himself was quite challenging at first, as I imagine that he killed me around 10 times before I realized that I could hide behind pillars, shoot dodge for about 2 seconds, then repeat. what seemed to make him hard was that it seemed like he had his own version of a rocket launcher, and it killed me within about 2 hits. i eventually hit him with enough rockets though, which I assume where about 25 or so.
BTW, the boss is known as the Cyberdemon, right? There a background storyline behind him by any chance? I assume that he comes back in Doom 2, right?
Anyways, what I got from the text that shows up after you beat the boss is that you were on one of Mars moons, and this time you survived, and you noticed something. Someone actually escaped from Hell (which I assume is Mars) and now you're gonna go to Mars itself to find out what the heck is going on there, and complete the final 8 or 9 levels of the original Doom!
Oh, and in case anyone wants my thoughts on the end of Episode 1, go here. Be warned that is contains some minor spoilers.
Oh, and for those who would ask the question "Are you for real?" I don't know what to say other than that yes, this post is 100% genuine. I've liked this game for a while, but I go back and forth between this and different games.
Oh, and yes, other then the recent BFG Edition, as far as I know I have access to every single Doom game.
