Are you a huge fan of Bethesda? Then this bit of news will make you happy. You can now download and play all three of the classic Doom games on your PlayStation 3’s through the Doom Classic Complete bundle!
Back in October of 2010, Doom was pulled from the XBLA due to licensing issues. The title is a grandfather of the modern first person shooter, and it should be experienced by, well, everyone. It's been over a year since the game was pulled from the Arcade library, but today marks its triumphant return.
One thing that's become increasingly apparent in today's age of digital downloads - they can disappear at anytime. Most times this happens because of expiring contracts between content providers. Such is the case with DOOM on Xbox Live Arcade. The game was originally released before Zenimax Media actually owned id Software.Once that contract expired there was no place for your money to go when purchased, so the game has been pulled.
id's timeless classic DOOM game has found it's way onto another platform, the iPhone/iPod Touch. I believe this makes it the game's 4,371st different platform - including the calculator, handheld, console, downloadable, web, java, and toaster based versions.
For the past few Co-Op Classics columns, I've been trying to hit some of the key co-op games of the past. Double Dragon and the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game are on most people's list of classics. Today, we move on to what many consider to be the most influential game ever. This game spawned hundreds of clones, and almost singlehandedly birthed an entire game genre, the first person shooter. A technical marvel, a violent, intense atmosphere, awesome level design and downright scary foes, all wrapped up in a co-op package, make DOOM one of the greatest co-op games of all time.
Classic co-op game Doom is coming to the iPhone next week, though the version is actually based on the Doom III game. Titled Doom: Resurrection, the game is rebuilt from Doom III assets and code - no small feat.
It looks like I spoke too soon, another great co-op title just popped up on Amazon.com for a discounted price. Doom, sporting four player split screen and online co-op, is available for less than $3 on Amazon's website.
Fifteen years ago a legend was released upon PCs. I still remember the day my father brought home the shareware disks from a guy at work. DOOM. It was gory, it was dark, it was intense and it was 3d! It was my excuse to buy a 14.4 modem. Why? It had co-op.
