-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 91 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 68 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 4 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 8 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 10 souls claim to have killed him...
 3 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 7 killed the bastard and survived.

You see that Platinum badge? You see it? The bug that's responsible for me, receiving it, robbed me of my rightful (future) Platinum badge! I will never be able to enjoy getting this badge, because i already got it without actually earning it!

Notes to this game:
I decided to pick every trait that allowed me to do something - anything! - faster, be it running or reloading. A shotgun was the obvious choice for the majority of this game, with the rocket launcher being second for dangerous cases and the BFG from the Halls of Carnage reserved for the Cyberdemon.
Somewhere in the middle of the game i realized that i can move-reload faster than i can reload, also getting the dodge bonus while i'm at it, which decided the tactics for the rest of the game.
When i depleted my only BFG at the Cyberdemon i realized - again! - that i can dodge every rocket as long as i move on the turn it is fired, which made the rocket launcher and the shotgun actually useful for the fight.

The explosion made by the dying Cyberdemon was very satisfying.
