 29 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 24 of those were killed.
 1 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 2 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 2 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 2 killed the bitch and survived.

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

A few afterthoughts I'd like to share:
+ Having a Trigun and an invulnerability globe on turns alt-reload into a "skip level" button. Satisfying, especially with a Cyberdemon in sight when you descend. I really liked that, especially by the end, when I was slowly growing tired.
+ What I didn't really like was the way the game turned into "spot the Arch-Vile" past level 50. It felt slightly grindy, too - though the thrill of "there could be unique goodies" was enough to keep me pressing forward. Overall, the challenge was fun, but I feel I won't be doing another one anytime soon. Need a bit of R&R.
+ I got a sniper mod pack early - decided to slap it on a plasma rifle just for kicks, since I was going for a shotgun run. Smartlinked plasma cooker turned out to be an excellent backup weapon, really helpful with these "spot the V" minigames. Not to mention notions like running out of ammo for boomsticks.
+ Malek's Armor a.k.a. Malek's Training Wheels. Gotten early, probably taken off once to see what Plasma Shield did. It sustained hideous amounts of damage throughout the whole game and significantly helped me with, well, not being dead. The game turned out to be a real piece of cake, not having to worry about collecting bits of armor. Thanks for lending me your shirt, man.
+ Another set of training wheels, just in case I managed to fall over anyway - Enviroboots. Afterwards it was just waiting for certain levels to flood completely with lava, then move on. And another layer of micromanagement off - who needs envirosuits, boots or all that crap, when you can have more thermonukes?
+ Lovely, lovely chainsword, my poor man's Dragonslayer. Why doesn't it make that satisfying chainsaw buzz, instead torturing my ears with that wet sponge punching sound? Or did I miss the power switch?

(Replaced it with the Butcher's Cleaver later on and deeper into the base.  It's fun to be a blademaster even though you aren't, though wielding any other weapon with this armor on felt just wrong.)

Overall, good to be back.

Congrats on your Centurial Gold!  :D  Lots to comment on here!  :)

Malek's Armour on level 7?  That's a seriously lucky find!  :o  (I didn't even know it could spawn that early in the game!)

And yeah, Army of the Dead can really dish out the pain, especially with a few levels of SOB.  (I kind of wonder why you put off getting that trait until the end)

And if you find Angel of 100 grindy, I recommend against playing it's bigger cousin, Archangel of 666.  Now that's a *real* grind!  :P

  On level 57 he was walking in fire!

This is interesting.  I don't think I've seen this message before?  :|  Although, now that I look at some of my past mortems, I seem to have encountered it several times, mostly in ArchAo666 games.  Does anyone know what it means?

Using the Angel Arm is fun, but I would advise caution about using it too much.  Each time it says "your life is drained," it's reducing your maximum health!  It's a lucky thing you didn't get instakilled toward the end after having used it ten times!  :o  (Especially if you were wearing the Enviroboots full time, since they slow you down, potentially letting enemies get a double shot at you)

One more thing...

  On level 92 he stumbled into a complex full of Cyberdemons!

Also a rare find.  That must've been one hell of a battle!  Details?  :)

All the details you'd like, mate. There we go:

Congrats on your Centurial Gold!  :D  Lots to comment on here!  :)

Thank you, thank you! This wasn't really as bad as I expected. I think I could have done that on Ultra-Violence instead and still do just as good. Of course, given I'd recieve just as much RNG love as in this particular case.

Malek's Armour on level 7?  That's a seriously lucky find!  :o  (I didn't even know it could spawn that early in the game!)

I suppose it must have been a welcoming gift for returning after several years of not playing. That, or I just used up my amounts of luck for another twenty years.

And yeah, Army of the Dead can really dish out the pain, especially with a few levels of SOB.  (I kind of wonder why you put off getting that trait until the end)

I wonder as well. I forgot that SoB bonus damage gets multiplied with both double shotties and rapidfire guns - actually, the decision to pick SoB was driven by noticing how cool my plasma smartgun was. Oh well!

And if you find Angel of 100 grindy, I recommend against playing it's bigger cousin, Archangel of 666.  Now that's a *real* grind!  :P

I am going to do it anyways, next time I am feeling masochistic.

This is interesting.  I don't think I've seen this message before?  :|  Although, now that I look at some of my past mortems, I seem to have encountered it several times, mostly in ArchAo666 games.  Does anyone know what it means?

My guess is that's the note for "mortars of hell" event. Maybe that's not the most fortunate wording... "Walked under artillery fire" would make more sense.

Using the Angel Arm is fun, but I would advise caution about using it too much.  Each time it says "your life is drained," it's reducing your maximum health!  It's a lucky thing you didn't get instakilled toward the end after having used it ten times!  :o  (Especially if you were wearing the Enviroboots full time, since they slow you down, potentially letting enemies get a double shot at you)

Didn't realize Enviroboots slowed a man so badly, but that would explain the mess all the Mancubi made when I tried to engage them in melee. Or how badly Nightmare Arach caves sucked. As per getting drained from using the Angel Arm, I decided to pick these two levels of Ironman just because of this - to mitigate the risks of running low on health. Though with lower overall maximum hit points it should be easier for damage to trigger the berserk, am I right?
Guess I'm almost ready for Angel of Humanity, then! ^_^

...Gosh, ten times? Really? I must have lost track!
Should have named my mortem something like "One-Armed Angel". Or "Sixty Billion Double Dollar Man".

One more thing...

("Welcome to Cyberville" sign)

Also a rare find.  That must've been one hell of a battle!  Details?  :)

Honestly? I kind of improvised. It was pretty easy to force melee on two to three at the same time. And the rest seemed very eager to hit each other with their missile launchers if you positioned in such a fashion. There also was a cacodemon vault on the same floor - I'd say it would be so much more fun if cacos got replaced with cybies as well. Cyberdemon vault... Imagine that!

I'd also like to add that going Berserker was the best decision, like, ever. By the endgame it got triggered so oftenly that it felt just like being permazerked.

Thanks for your insights!

Ah, okay, that makes sense.  And I agree about your choice of new wording.

Honestly? I kind of improvised. It was pretty easy to force melee on two to three at the same time.

Ah yes, I can imagine how the permazerk would have been a huge help against the Cybies.  I would've been too nervous about having my health that low, but obviously, it worked out for you, so kudos!  :)
