"John Romero's about to make you his bitch."

All the years later, that unforgettable magazine advertisement just cracks me up. The legacy of Ion Storm's Daikatana is that of disappointment, although, to be fair, it had to follow the likes of Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake. There was nowhere left to go but down.

Between you and me, I've never actually played the game for any considerable amount of time. And, while I'm telling strangers on the Internet things I shouldn't be sharing, I am dangerously close to adding Daikatana to my Steam library. It's out as of today for $6.99 (and is also on GOG.com for a buck less, if that's more your speed.)

This is going to end in regret.

Playthrough: Destiny's Mars has cars, but not a single hot dog in sight

I've come down with a bad case of Dumpster Mono, and Max Scoville is terrified of germs, so he made me stay home so he could play Destiny and call it 'work'. But, without my responsible guidance, he got tricked into playing ...more

Review: Destiny

It's been a small journey reviewing Destiny, but now I've experienced every facet of the game and I'm ready to make my decision. As mentioned previously, the story and setting leave a lot to be desired, but the gunplay is ver...more
