I don’t need to tell any of you Ego-dudes what a slice of badassery Doom is. The tale of the lone anonymous space marine who descended into hell’s anus armed only with a pistol is a beloved icon, bringing back fond memories of the nineties to all. The FPS craze began here.

The word ‘legend’ is bandied about a lot these days. Back in school, I remember a guy who was branded a legend after he shat in the wastepaper basket in the toilets. Legend? In hindsight, there are probably more appropriate words for that sort of thing, but we were just too young to know it. Ah, the innocence of youth. Anywho, though, Doom is truly legendary in every possible sense, and now it needs our help.

The super generic Studly Space Marine #32754 makes this look like one of the half-assed Doom clones from back in the day, not the genuine article. The shooter we know and love deserves better. Which is why id Software have kicked off a vote for fans to choose the reverse sleeve. Take a look and make your choice here:
