Nintendo Download: Humanity is DOOMed

Nintendo celebrates last week’s Doom releases in this edition of the Download, though there are a few other gems as well.

Classic shooting action

Okay, so this week’s Nintendo Download is a little anti-climactic. Bethesda released all three of the classic Doom games last week after all, so there isn’t much to get excited about here.

Nintendo is promoting Pandemic as the headlining game though, so it seems like they know that. As it is, it sounds pretty cool and kind of frightening. Pandemic tasks gamers with defeating pathogens from ravaging the world.

Other than the above, there’s a selection of indie stuff that you probably won’t recognize. Oh, and Doom. Did I mention that?
