    Does this have lots of interesting nuggets about the game development, ideas, and cool stuff like that? The dev commentary on Conker's Bad Fur Day has been a real treat in that regard, and I'd love to have more stuff like that :)

    I stuck a youtube version in the first post. Anyway I shall have to take a look later, I too also enjoyed the Conker's Bad Fur Day commentary and the other John doing Doom does a mean presentation or two himself.

    Edit. Watched it. Not bad at all, especially for IGN.

    It's the anniversary already? Huh.

    I guess you could call this Doom's Day.

    Man. Just watched that entire cast. It pretty much puts a tear to my eye from nostalgia. But not only that: all the comments on level design, inside jokes, how things went...it was awesome all around. Not sure whether to call it an interview or a documentary, but it was ABSOLUTELY worth watching. :D

    The really cool part is that some of the stuff they talk about in the Conker stuff has confirmed a few ideas and things we've uncovered from the final and some early versions of the game, like unfinished cutscenes, or different item layouts (the hidden life near the cheese as an example).

    I'd die if we could get some more dev commentary on another Rareware game :)

    Glad I'm not the only one getting enjoyment out of this video! And again, thanks for the additional links and references! When it comes to classics that have a special place in my heart (such as DOOM), I never tire of watching videos like this, especially for the fact that I love dabbling in game design my self, on the DOOM engine no less. :)

    Gahars: What is it with you guys and cheesey one liners?! Keep em' coming! :)
