I just finished the game and I really must applaud id for making a amazing game. Two things I noticed toward the end of the game that I thought were cool.

1) In the final level there is a panel that says "Id" that if you push reveals a room with a pda/disc with emails from all the id software staff.
2) And even cooler...In one of the final video discs there is a video describing the tablets found in the dig sites. There was a race living on mars that battled off these same demons "millenia" ago and the original doom 1 poster picture is pictured which is of course the marine battling the hell knights attacking him with one of the knights looking at the viewer. The only difference is the machine gun in the original picture is replaced by a soul cube.

Kind of a cool way of thinking about it is that marine you played in doom 1 was part of the ancient civilization that lived on mars. And everybody in this game millenia later are "descendents". Although this wouldn't explain why the soul cube wasn't in the first game.

I haven't been able to see this particular part of the game (don't ask :( ) but I am looking forward to it once I can play again. :) What I can say is that when I saw the tablet with the original doom marine, I smiled. :clap: Very classy. :)

I think in the original poster it is a cyber demon, not a hells knight. And for some reason the original cyber demon concept looks a lot more freaky then the new cyber demon.
