: I'm not sure what you mean by this exactly, but I'm pretty sure pathways has

: PiD level without doing part of it, leaving, then coming back later when
: you have a new item.

: For example, what would vidding Wrong Way! even mean? I guess if you define

: could vid most of it by simply moving forward a few steps, then going back
: to get to the initial ladder, ending the level.
Thatís basically exactly what I meant, yeah. Pathways does still have somewhat more discrete levels in that they often represent physical floors of the pyramid, whereas in Echoesí case theyíre basically divided based on Aleph One engine limitations (usually physical space or map indices), which is a substantially more arbitrary marker.

But Iíll defer to your PiD knowledge. ISTR that some PiD levels can be completed more or less start-to-finish in one go, but many others canít. The big difference with Echoes is that basically *none* of the levels can be completed start-to-finish in one go Ė even if there are *specific objectives* for some levels that you can do in one go, those levels almost always extra hidden stuff youíll have to come back for later, when youíve picked up more stuff, at least if youíre going for 100% item collection. I think the only level with a specific objective that doesnít contain any extra stuff right now is ďThe BoilerĒ, and that could well be intended to change if Ryoko finishes the game. And with the massive onslaught of enemies on that level and the tiny amount of shields (0.6x, IIRC) and weaponry (none) the player starts with, itís a safe bet that itíd be almost impossible to vid that level, in any case.

Öok, i said i was done procrastinating like twenty minutes ago. really now.
