Pretty soon doom will run natively on the human brain...

...but until then it looks like playing Doom on XBox Live Arcade might just have to do. According to Xboxic, Doom could make its way to Xbox Live arcade for 800 ms points as soon as tonight. It's reportedly going to include 5.1 Dolby sound, 4 player co-op, and deathmatch online.
This sounds like a great way to kick off X06 if its true. Just thinking about it makes me wonder how many people have never experienced the classic Episode 1, Level 1 music as they run through the fast paced pixelated dungeon of ultra violence that is doom. And at about $10 - its a steal.
This has me pretty excited and I can't wait for the official announcement. Even if this is complete BS, maybe it'll spur someone into thinking its a good idea. This also opens some interesting ideas into possibly seeing more old PC games make their way to XBL Arcade. What classic PC games would you guys like to see ported and maybe have additional features added to? What features added features would make a game worth buying again?
