Whilst roaming the halls of Quakecon and shooting everything in sight (with a camera), our friends at BigDownload (http://www.bigdownload.com/) spotted a heretofore unannounced Xbox Live Arcade version of id Software's FPS classic, Doom 2. According to Shacknews (http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/59971), the downloadable title is set feature all of Doom II's content, in addition to a new episode, 4-player local multiplayer and the usual online shootery. You can also expect an exciting doubling of barrels over the original Doom -- both of the exploding and shotgun varieties.

Also spotted at Quakecon: a further proof of life from our long-anticipated friend, Quake Arena Arcade (http://www.joystiq.com/tag/Quake-Arena-Arcade/)!

Doom 2 and Quake Arena? YES!

When you have money again, you should stock up. I usually keep a couple of spare 2100 cards around the house for 'emergencies'! :D

Yeah but it's only on the Collector's Edition Disc (I think?), and that doesn't work in the 360. At least my copy didn't when I tried it. Normal Doom 3 is supposed to work, but the Collector's one won't even boot. Which sucks ass. :(

This little announcement has made me very excited. I've been waiting to see them pump this game out for quite some time now. I cannot wait.

Neat ... I skipped the first for Wolf 3D since I've played Doom before. I'll get Doom II, especially if it has a map ... :)

I will probably definitely be getting both if they are both a reasonable price. Anything over 800 msp and i'll sadly have to pass.

Let's hope the achievements are a little more challenging than the Doom ones.

I hope the achievements aren't the usual that is been for Doom and Wolf3D just finish the levels and find all the secrets in a level and get all kills *sigh*
What I really wish is that they would do something about the splitscreen... I don't get it at all. Does anybody actually like the borders around the screens? I don't. :( makes the numbers too hard to read for me.
