Yes, yes. We've already mentioned this in previous 'This Week on XBLA...' posts, but we thought we'd put it out there again anyway, just in case you missed it elsewhere. Doom is indeed back on the Xbox Live Arcade, so if you missed it way back when, then you can snap it up now.
One of the founding games of the FPS genre alongside Wolfenstein 3D, Doom is a true seminal classic that pretty much defined the first-person shooter upon its release back in 1993, with its claustrophobic corridors packed with demonic hellspawn to blast into chunky offal.
Rev up your chainsaw, load up on shotgun shells and power up your BFG 9000 for Doom on the Xbox Live Arcade, re-released now for 400 Microsoft Points. Boom.
