Â At this point, the Doom aficionados among us will have had a weekend to spend with the new game. So whatâ€™s the verdict? Does it stay true to the iconic original, while updating it for our fancy-ass new world of 2016? Or is it a generic Halo-flavored spacey shooter too far?

Rob Bast isnâ€™t assed though. This guyâ€™s well known in the making-art-with-chainsaws community (I assume thereâ€™s a community; on an island somewhere away from the rest of humanity perhaps), and heâ€™s just finished up one hell â€“yeah, that was intentionalâ€”of a project. Behold:
