Probably not. That's just the way I like to play. The SO is a cyborg, but it's unclear to me if, within the context of the story, he ever realizes it. Things in the game that are supposed to be dangerous are, well... supposed to be dangerous. I honestly don't find enjoyment a lot of times in the power fantasy aspect of games-- taking a situation that by rights should be considered dangerous and then marching in like Rambo without a jock strap and taking everything head-on.

As for the lava, even on MD the short trip through lava to the secret was nearly fatal because we didn't trip back to the recharge *again*, and the trip to the final teleporter easily takes off 1x of health (by design I suppose)-- more if you mistime your bob through the lava, which

Eh-- what difference would it make? Ammo seems to respawn almost infinitely anyhow, and if we weren't taking trips back for ammo we'd still be walking back past ammo after respawning, so I think if anything on TC the video would have had more dead air in it.

I did like that you

Not a bad idea for a special episode, but we did want to beat the level in a manner as close to legitimate as coop allowed for without restarting the level. (Which is why I never play Halo with the iron skull, for instance).

I assume so, yes. We haven't gotten that far with Infinity yet. We're going to stockpile some levels before releasing the first episodes so the schedule remains regular.
