Some of the content on this page came from the (now-removed) merged article "Cerberus (Blood)", which is now available at Talk:Blood (computer game)/Cerberus (Blood). Do not delete that page - we need it (and its history) for Wikipedia copyright reasons. Noel (talk) 13:37, 3 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Game guide[edit]

I think the magnitude of content discussed on this page is not fitting for the article, I suggest moving everything from Weapons through to Enemies, Bosses and other characters into a Game Guide article in Wikibooks. -- Quoth 10:40, 12 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • We should keep physical descriptions of items and enemies, but all strategy-related stuff should go to WikiBooks. (For example, we'd keep, "Cultists that have blue robes use electricity," and move, "It's best to kill them with a sniper rifle," to WikiBooks. Make sense?)

    • Quite correct, I concur. Although I'm at a loss as to how to make the article look less bloated with sections. Perhaps the level sections of each episode can be amalgamated into nice episode summaries. -- Quoth 02:34, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
      • What about creating articles such as "List of Blood enemies" to place all the information on enemies and "List of Blood equipment" where to move info on weapons and items? This is a path that was already followed for a number of other cvg related articles. Berserker79 09:41, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

E1M2 Life Seed Not First?[edit]

This article lists the life seed in E1M2 as the first in the episode; however, I recall one in the crematorium furnace secret at E1M1. Am I mistaken, or should this be changed? Orange & Viridian 07:51, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Thanks. I'm changing it now. Also, I'm going to add information on the second E1 Super Secret, the hidden ledge facing the cloud panorama in E1M6. Orange & Viridian

Mac OS?[edit]

Why is this article under Mac OS games? It doesn't and never ran on a mac. yuriks 04:14, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Life leech does heal[edit]

While you mention that the life leech doesn't heal, I know for a fact that it does. You fail to mention the differences in the weapons between Plasma Pak and the original.

JoJo the Circus Freak Reference[edit]

Does anyone know the origin of the "I want JoJo. JOJO JOJO JOJO!" quotes and frequent references to JoJo the Circus Freak? Killer Klownz from Outer Space appears to have a JoJo, but not as a main character or reference that would likely be used ten years later in a video game...


--- It's from Tommy Boy. Chris Farley says at one point, "I'm like Jojo the idiot circus boy" - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114694/quotes

It could be refering to this guy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jo-Jo_The_Dog-Faced_Boy Godslayer 19:02, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

New revisions as of July 23, 2006[edit]

The Blood article has been tagged as in need of clean-up since November 2005. I've decided to rewrite and reorganize it: I've broken it into three different articles

I tried to keep all the existing info in the main article, but once I moved the weapons and enemies sections, the article did contain real few data regarding the game itself. As a result I've added a "Features" section with desriptions of the gameplay, multiplayer support and other info (e.g. the engine technology used in Blood). The levels descriptions have been turned into episode summaries as suggested by a user above. The references section has been rewritten to contain all the scattered details about the references to popular media in the game as well. A "Franchise" section covers all the different releases of Blood including the expansions who get their own sub-section with episode summaries. Finally I've added a "Fan projects" paragraph, albeit I've included only "Transfusion" so far.

The articles for weapons/items and creatures have been created to move extra content out of the main article. I've given a new layout to the contents, but mostly kept them as in the previous revision. However, I took the liberty to remove most of what could be considered "game hints" like "this weapons work best on...", "this enemy is tough" and tried to keep exclusively to descriptions. BTW, these two latter articles still need some spell/typo check. Berserker79 09:05, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

First FPS game with multiple modes for weaponry?[edit]

The paragraph claiming this is not true. Heretic, 3 years earlier had this feature. Every weapon on Heretic is such that on being combined with the Tome of Power, augments the weapon so that it is more powerful that the weapon on its own. See Heretic (computer game)#Weapons Stephen Howe 14:42, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

In a more general sense, Star Wars: Dark Forces and Marathon both have alternate fire modes for most weapons (simply activated by a keystroke). Both were from 1995. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.58.87.110 (talk) 09:51, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

ZBlood Attacks[edit]

A little while ago the ZBlood section disappeared, this did not seem suspicious so I rewrote. Then later I find that it has disappeared again (I was able to recover it). Disappearing once is fine but twice in so many weeks is suspicious. Also noting a similar attack towards ZBlood on the Blood Wiki. I recommend all Bloodites on Wikipedia watch guard over the section.

Ishmael and Shial[edit]

The story text depicts that Ishmael is carried off by Shial, probably due to the first cut scene where a spider grabs a guy that looks like Ishmael from Blood II. But the game's readme file says that Ishmael was toasted by Cerberus and Gabriel was captured by Shial. Surly the reademe is off greater creditability than a debatable cut scene appearance. I would like some word back on this. Comrade Graham (talk) 07:26, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
