Doom, as we all know damn well, is the ultimate in man-tastic manly gaming. With its studly space marine and relentless gung-ho blood-leaky action, this is as masculine as it gets. Players have been known to grow huge effing Game of Thrones beards, or lose the ability to admit they're lost and ask for directions on road trips, while getting their Doom on.
That's how damn manly this game is. Just so we're clear on that.
Nevertheless, nobody can deny that it looks like shit today. It may have a proud legacy as the grandpappy of the FPS, but man does it look piss-poor. That's what the inexorable march of technology does to our cultural heritage. And our desire to shoot hideous flesh-things from the depths of the devil's ass right in the face. Or both.
What we need, then, is a way to keep the original Doom alive without subject our eyeballs to its jaggedy, jagged jagginess. Doom Reborn looks set to fit the bill with style.
This, right here, is a mod that brings the first two games to life using the Doom 3 engine. It's a work in progress, but it's already looking quite sexy. This is one to keep an eye on.
