History[ edit ] The earliest known use of the term "space marine" was by Bob Olsen in his short story "Captain Brink of the Space Marines" Amazing StoriesVolume 7, Number 8, Novembera light-hearted work whose title is a play on the song " Captain Jinks of the Horse Marines ", and in which the protagonists were marines of the "Earth Republic Space Navy" on mission to rescue celebrity twins from aliens on Titan. Olsen published a novella sequel four years later, "The Space Marines and the Slavers" Amazing Stories, Volume 10, Number 13, Decemberfeaturing the same characters using a spaceship with active camouflage to free hostages from Martian space pirates on Ganymede. The phrase "space marines" appears in Robert A.
Single-player[ edit ] Doom 3 is a story-driven action game played from a first-person perspective. As with previous Doom games, the main objective is to successfully pass through its levels, defeating a variety of enemy characters intent on killing the player's character.
Doom 3's more story-centered approach, however, means that the player often encounters friendly non-player characterswho provide key plot information, objectives and inventory items.
The game incorporates ten weapons for the player's use to survive, including conventional firearms such as a submachine gunshotgun and grenadesexperimental plasma weaponry, and the traditional BFG and chainsaw weapons of the Doom franchise.
Zombies are humans possessed by demonic forces, who attack the player's character using their hands and melee weapons or a variety of firearms, while demons are creatures from Hellmost of which attack using claws and spines, or by summoning plasma-based fireballs.
The player fighting a Revenant in Doom 3. The majority of the game takes place within the futuristic base The game's levels are fairly linear in nature and incorporate several horror elements, the most prominent of which is darkness.
Early in the game, during and directly after the event that plunges the base into chaos, the player often hears Marine science through the years sounds of fighting, screaming and dying through their radio transmitter.
The ambient sound is extended to the base itself through such things as hissing pipes, footsteps, and occasional jarringly loud noises from machinery or other sources.
Often ambient sounds can be heard that resemble deep breathing, unexplained voices and demonic taunting from the game's antagonists. PDAs contain security clearance levels, allowing the player to access certain areas that are otherwise locked and off-limits.
Additionally, the PDA can be used to read e-mails and play videos that the player's character acquires during the game. Whenever the player picks up any of the other PDAs found throughout the game, its contents are automatically downloaded to the player's own device.
Other PDAs often contain e-mails and audio logs for other characters, which can provide useful information such as storage or door key codes, as well as significant plot details. However, the game's community created a modification to boost this to eight or sixteen players.
The four game modes are all deathmatches. The standard deathmatch game mode involves each player moving around a level, collecting weaponry and killing the other players, with the player with the highest kills when the time runs out winning.
A team variation of this involves the same principle. The third game mode is "last man standing", in which each player has a limited amount of respawnswith players losing a life when they are killed. Eventually, all but one player will be eliminated from the game, leaving the survivor as the winner.
The final game mode is "tournament", in which two players fight each other while the other players watch as spectators. The victor of the battle remains in the arena, facing each other player one at a time until the winner of previous rounds is defeated.
The loser then moves to the spectators and the new winner remains to fight the next player.

At this base, the UAC are able to conduct research into several scientific areas, including advanced weapons development, biological researchspace exploration and teleportation. On Mars, the UAC can perform its operations outside of legal and moral boundaries. Rumors regarding the nature of experiments in the UAC's Delta Labs division are especially prevalent among the base's employees.

Eastern boundary currents are among the most productive marine ecosystems on the planet and support a significant proportion of global fisheries, yet there are unanswered questions about the role of non-crustacean zooplankton in transferring production through upwelling food webs.
Scientists believe that life on Earth began in the ocean, approximately 4 billion years ago. And in fact, it was only about million years ago that life emerged from the ocean onto the land.
