How about jamming the Doc' into guide-bot's docking bay?

... and leaving the Guide-Bot behind?  I'm all for it.  ;)

I wonder what GB does when he's in that little docking bay...

Maybe he's got cable or something. :p

No need, we already know the hostage compartment in the Pyro is HammerSpace!

Nah, not cable.  He's got Dish (wireless you know).   :D

Actually in the books (here I go again ;)) they removed his wireless modem in fear of the virus infecting the robot. :P

Well, no wonder he's so annoying then, he's got nothing better to do. :P

An infected guidebot would most likely be much more entertaining than a non-infected guidebot.  :P
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

Guide bot did have that evil twin available for D2 levels.  >:(

As I recall, it wasn't very impressive. A charcoal gray guidebot that made a kind of growling sound, would ram you and explode with great force.

Basically the evil twin is the omega defense spawn (those fish-bots) under the guise of a green guidebot.

There was also a green heavy driller from D1 that shot two homing missiles rather than plasma. The DEVIL name for them ("Mine Guard") suggests they were originally intended to be the original Lou Guard concept.

That makes sense, because I learned recently that D2 was originally going to be an add-on to D1, and not an actual, physical, sequel.
