  At this point, the Doom aficionados among us will have had a weekend to spend with the new game. So what’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?

Chew on that for a while, I don’t need an answer right away. It’s early on a Monday morning, that’s no time for, y’know, thinking about stuff. Let’s disengage our brains and enjoy some crazy-ass chainsaw art instead.

Said Doom fans will also be familiar with the hulking revenant, that dastardly and bastardly classic series foe. It might look a lil’ funny, with that rocket jet pack thing tied to its back, but it’s not a joke you’d want to eff with. An 8ft tall sculpture of it is just the kind of thing you don’t want in your living room.

Rob Bast isn’t assed though. This guy’s well known in the making-art-with-chainsaws community (I assume there’s a community; on an island somewhere away from the rest of humanity perhaps), and he’s just finished up one hell –yeah, that was intentional—of a project. Behold:
