 Before him 51 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 47 of those were killed.
 And 4 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah, I know it's a victory on easy. I'm still a "n00b" at this game--I've only been playing a few weeks.

It took me 51 deaths to beat this game... I probably would have beaten the game a lot sooner if it weren't for my own stupidity.

One lesson learned the hard way: don't hold down the cursor keys to move, ESPECIALLY when there are enemies around. There's nothing like a marine with ammochain and a plasma rifle with sniper and power mods being killed by a Baron that he walked into and punched until the Baron ripped him to shreds.

I haven't been playing ITTYD because it seems too easy. I found myself getting bored after awhile and dying because I wasn't paying attention. I figured I could beat it on that level if I applied myself, but would rather do the game on HNTR which is a lot more fun.

But then decided to try an all melee ITYTD game. I figured the melee aspect would make it reasonably challenging, and anyway it would give me a chance to get a lot of badges in one sitting. Unfortunately I missed the 100% kills badge by quite a bit--I probably shouldn't have gone to the Vault, since there probably wouldn't have been much worthwhile stuff for me anyway.

It is nice to have something to show my own progress, but I think this is enough of ITYTD level for me. From now on, it's HNTR or better all the way. To be honest, I didn't get all that big a feeling of accomplishment. I just breezed through the last few levels, staying over 100% health almost the whole time. The Cyberdemon fight seemed to end almost before it started, with me never even coming close to running out of med-packs. Once I went berserk it was over. Maybe next I'll try the Marksman challenge. Wish me luck!


Quick question for future strongman games: Can I use the rocket launcher to open passageways? Will just firing the rocket launcher make me lose the Strongman badge, or do I have to actually kill a monster with it? Having access to those agility mods in the chained court would make a strongman win a lot easier.

In all honesty, it's not worth the risk of finding out. :P

The marksman challenge is good fun. You'd be surprised at how powerful pistols can be in the hands of a dualgunner.

And about holding down keys to move: if you press the , key and a direction you'll automatically move that way until something interrupts you. I don't use it too much, though, because it annoys me that it doesn't stop moving even after I hit a corner (unlike how it works in nethack/dungeon crawl).
