I consider EP2 a love-child of Episode 1 and Episode 3. Having the Arachnotron in Episode 2 would be rather fun.

Well, probably thanks to being a total min-maxer in RPGs and playing enough WoW, I never use the plasma rifle when the more ammo-efficient BFG9000 is available, even if it means getting up a bit closer. It kills more enemies way faster and for less ammo. There's really no situation where the BFG isn't a better choice than the plasma rifle besides for killing boss monsters who are out of reach of the BFG.

It's a shame because I actually like using the plasma rifle (hate the noise, though). If it had an ammo pool separate from the BFG, it could be a more powerful primary weapon to take the place of the supershotgun without blowing you up at close range. Also, the BFG's ammo counter could better represent how much ammo you have left and you'd never end up with an extra half-shot in the pool.

I have another question that is graphically separated from the plasma rifle discussion. Will there be 3D floors in TSoZD? I know development has been underway since long before 3D floors were added, but now that they're there, you could add them into a few places where they would be appropriate; maybe replace some midtexture bridges.

I don't think Arachnotrons should appear until episode 3, since the Mastermind doesn't appear until then. I think arachnotrons should be treated like the Mastermind's babies or henchmen.

That doesn't mean that they shouldn't appear. It's not like suddenly the Mastermind comes into existence in E3 and starts pumping out units like there's no tomorrow. She was there for a while, surely.

The arachnotron is sort of techy too, so I honestly don't think it fits hell that well, looks more like a techy combined with a hellish unit, and The shores of hell, is like a techbase combined with hell. Fits TSoZD like a glove!

Do it again, and I'll invoke Cran Time!

OH GOD, WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!?


On Topic: I don't mind waiting. I'm just glad knowing it's still being worked on. I was worried that it had been abandoned or something, considering how little we heard about it.

Concerning music. Will it be in the same manner as it was with KDIZD, modern remake of the originals? Or are you going for different music with this one?
