Okay, due to popular demand, I made a recording of myself playing DoomRL!  :D  It's a pretty generic, masterless build, but hopefully, it gives you an idea of what my play-style is like.  It was a pretty lucky game, which gave me good equipment, including a Nuclear Plasma Rifle, which I assembled into a Burst Cannon, which made a good chunk of the game trivial with how efficiently it chewed up all my enemies.  :)  Note that I got a full win, so anyone who wants to avoid full-win-related spoilers, don't watch the last ten minutes or so of the last video.

I had a microphone on and tried to give a running commentary as I went, but I frequently found myself tongue-tied/stammering/babbling.  I hope people find it suitably entertaining and/or helpful anyway.  :P

I played in console mode, since that's how I roll, and I broke it up into three videos, one for each episode...  or at least that's what I intended to do, but the second video crashed 6 minutes in and I didn't realize it until I was most of the way through Hell's Armory.  (Which was unfortunate, since you miss me getting a really sweet Shambler's Head medal!)  :|  Then, when I resumed recording, somehow, the mic level got set to minimum without me realizing it, and for the entirety of Deimos, you can barely hear anything.  :(

Regardless, here they are.  Any comments/suggestions are welcome, including possibly suggestions about what to record in future or what to talk about during future recordings.  :)

Part 1  Featuring:  Hell's Arena, Chained Court, (Plus!) and Military Base

Part 2a  Featuring:  Phobos Anomaly, an abrupt crash!  :o

Part 2b  Featuring:  The end of Hell's Armory, The Wall, City of Skulls, Halls of Carnage, low microphone levels!  :|

Part 3  Featuring:  Tower of Babel, Unholy Cathedral, The Vaults, The Mortuary, Mount Erebus, Hell Fortress

Also, I'd like to take this opportunity to offer thanks to Papilio, who suggested the software I used to make these recordings.  Overall, I think they worked out pretty well.  :)

Why don't you take advantage of the three free Berserks in the chained court? I just chainsaw the crap out of everything and rocket the Master to death. saving the last berserk for a free heal.

Aaah!  :o  I fully intended to pick up the berserk packs on my way out but I guess I forgot.  :|  I didn't even realize until rewatching it, and now I feel dumb.  :P  And yes, I could have used them to clear out the Barons, but my health and ammo levels were decent, so I didn't feel a need to.  Being berserk can be very powerful, so I prefer to save those packs for emergencies whenever possible, like if the Barons and/or Arena Master cornered me.

Also, I may have been instinctively using Nightmare! tactics of trying to preserve the integrity of the central structure, since those doorways are good for corpse disposal.  It wasn't until after the Barons were dead that I kind of said to myself, "oh yeah, it doesn't matter if I destroy that thing," and fired a rocket at it.  :)

Interesting to see giving 3 trait points to Bru2+Ber on non-melee builds.

I used to think that it is a waste to do so for just clearing Unholy Cathedral,
but as I see, it somehow helps in non-melee builds as revenants/archviles' attacks give you berserk status...

Yeah, with the added bonus that you can periodically tear around with your Scythe if you feel like it.  :)

So, I'm thinking of doing this again with the graphics version, since someone said they prefer it.  Does anyone have any requests of what class/build I should use?  (If anyone thinks I should try for a different badge/medal, that's cool too)

I use the graphics version, but watching your video was surprisingly easy to follow once I figured out what some of the symbols meant. I say try to tackle an interesting angel, I had a speed run challenge I did for angel of pacifism. think I had it down to seven minutes, with good RNG you can get it down to two and change. my mortem on that is in here somewhere.

I really need to adopt what you do in some cases. I never item gift, I'm pretty careless compared to you.

Good, because I just tried playing around with the graphics version (my first time in a while) and it reminded me of why I prefer the ASCII version.  :P  I kept messing up and misinterpreting the unfamiliar objects in front of me; I think if I'm going to be doing any recordings with the graphics version, it'll have to be with a challenge that's (relatively) safe and familiar.

I say try to tackle an interesting angel...

Hmm...  I'll give that some thought...  perhaps an interesting angel combination?  Something that doesn't usually get combined?  Hmm...

I had a speed run challenge I did for angel of pacifism. think I had it down to seven minutes, with good RNG you can get it down to two and change. my mortem on that is in here somewhere.

Whaddya say we bump it up a notch and try Archangel of Pacifism?  Make it interesting...  ;)

I'll add that one to the list.  :D
