Yah, I'm a fool. I downloaded the Daikatana demo. I knew it was crap but I just had to take a look for myself.

It's worse than crap...it's... it's... I don't know. What a piece of bantha poodoo.

Consider it a service from me, to all those who are on 56k or less and are considering the 102 Mb download. Don't waste time, don't waste space and above all, don't waste your mind on this sorry excuse of a game.

And the aftertaste... ugh....

Uh...the game actually does suck. Oh, by the way, anyone with a name like "angryassedrapist" should be the last person giving advice on decency. Next time you disagree with someones opinion, try posting an intelligent reply instead of a garbled, incoherent peice of garbage. You usually make alot more friends that way.

If the past is an idea that can only occur in the here-and-now, and the future is also just a concept happening strictly in the present, is there really a past and future? Or just a continuum of present moments?

Angryassedrapist:

1. Are you in any way affiliated with the team who created Diakatana?

2. If so, why can't you take citicism and then create a better game on par with the consumers interest?

3. If not, why do you act so strongly about the game?

4. Do you create games, contribute to any mod?

5. Why do you feel that throwing around bad language is the only way to make yourself heard?

6. From what that I know, Chand does not camp. Why do you make false allegations? Sniping can be oftan confused for camping by some ignorant people. Sniping is a completely legitament action within a game.

7. And finally, do you even have a "bitch"? I ,frankly, wouldn't think that she would like to be called a bitch and probably wouldn't stand for your childish behavior.

Allright...let's begin. I feel I'm entitled to reply and forget this.


> have a idea you stupid ********! why the hell don't you make your own video game and then see how ****ing nice it is.. huh what do you think about that..

Oh, I'll tell you what I think. The only game I made was waaaay back in the day of the old C128 and Basic 7.0. It was a mindless thing where you had to shoot planes and other various flying crap. It even had a high score table...

Answering your question and to use your own terminology, I thought it was pretty ****ing nice back then but then game never survived peer review (my friends).

Still, I had more fun with that than with DK. Except for DK's uninstall process. That was glorious.

So, for the sake of argument, I *HAD* created a game. And it felt nice.

> hmm I thought so .. here lemme guess you are one of those sick ****ed up little children that have nothing better to do than to sit at home and ****ing talk smack about video games.. I hate people like you..

I must say you guess wrong, mon petit slime pile.

I'm 25 (don't know if that qualifies as little children), happily married and all that.

I'm sure there are better things to do than sit all day at home and talk smack about games. Believe it or not I do a lot of things, every day, all day long. One of which, of course, is to talk 'smack' about games. It happens when you've been involved with games one way or the other since you were 6 and when you love games and gaming with passion.

Perhaps it was this very passion about games that took over me when I wrote such bad (but true) comments about Daikatana... I do not know. What I do know is that, precisely beacuse of this 'involvement' with games for almost 20 years now, you instinctly develop appreciation, taste and opinions about games.

DK, in my opinion, is a game that if I were ever entitled to rate or review it, I'd say it's "Very Bad". But of course that's just my opinion (and I trust it's informed).

On a second note, why do you hate people like me ?

Like me because I'm 25 ?
Like me because I'm married ?
Like me because I like games and KNOW about them more or less ?
Like me because WHAT exactly ?

Please clarify that...

> sure you are good at the games but you have nothing better to do!
I could list here all the things that are better to do than playing games (specially playing DK..but that'd be an almost infinite list)... but I don't think it's relevant to this thread or forum.

If you would've displayed more intelligence or tact in your comments, I would've honestly invited you over to my place for a day or two so you could appreciate the wonderful variety of things (all better than playing games) that I do everyday. But since you've demonstrated that you're rude, unarticulated and that you have the delicacy and tact of a kick in the testicles, I do not want individuals like you in my home. I'd have to clean any surfaces you might have touched.


> At least I get out and **** my bitch while you are still sitting on the server fufking camping in the darkness where nobody can see you..

Good for you, I say. I trust that when you say 'bitch' you're referring to your girlfriend, wife, boyfriend or whatever your love or sexual interest is.

But I feel the need to remind you that, while you're having your sexual intercourse (paid in your case, I assume), please wear a condom. Not only you and your partner will be safe from VDs, but also you'll make the job easier for the people of the year 2020. If you wear a condom, they won't have to step into their time machine to get back to this day and kill you so they can be safe from your offspring in their own time. Always think about the future.

Sniping or 'camping' (do not confuse the two) is very valid. It requires stealth, orientation and precision. But since you have such low comments on it I assume you belong to the ranks of the mindless drones or 'grunts', adept to a more simple, easy and unsatisfying school of gaming. Please don't make the mistake of including me there. It's a facet of gaming I don't belong to.


>get some ****ing guts mother ****er and then see how ****ing good you are.. next time take a damn pistol and actually try to kill someone with pride you cock sucker.

And how exactly do you kill someone with pride ? Last thing I knew you had to use a weapon or some kind of poison...

However, reading your comments, I see that you're able to kill just by your wonderful use of the language. If so, then it is possible to kill with pride, since you can do it just by attempting to write some lines in your own, very special way.

But to do that, you don't need guts as you affirm. To kill with speech, like you do, it just takes a lobotomy. Or two in your case... the thing was so small they had troubles to find it in the first try.

But all this is pointless. The fact remains that DK is mediocre *at best* and neither me or you with you 'comments' can change that.

Farewell..

I agree that Daiktana was the WORST game of all time... I think it probably should be used for doorstops at under-funded, inner-city schools everywhere... the students would never want to steal it... as sebulba put it ... "bantha poodoo" lol /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I usually try to never comment or rate a game demo... but if it is as Mr. Romero said, that the demo is "a good indicator of the final game" then, well, the final game will be mediocre too.

Which doesn't mean anything from a sales point of view. It could sell millions or it could be bargain bin material. Don't know and don't care really... the thing stinks.

Never been beaten and tortured into doing it you mean /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Daiktana is like some kind of Vietnamese death trap of some sort. It looks like something interesting and harmless... then just when you appraoch it and settle down to take a look... BOOM!! /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

ouch.

angryassedrapist, try not to visit message boards anytime you are feeling angry, depressed or in any other way feelin negative. It doesnt help writing angry messages like that. It probably makes you feel worse.

Daikatana isnt that horrible, is it?

maybe if someone could explainthe good and bad points of DK to us ppl who dont have cable modems to download it, we'll see why you are criticizing it.

**** Happens... and with great regularity too. We just have to deal with it one turd at a time.

Ok... I'll try to be brief then. Please keep in mind this is only my opinion. Here it goes :

The Good :
--------

*) Nice variety of weapons and enemies
*) Focus on SP makes for a good story
*) The uninstall works.

The Bad :
-------

*) Looks really bad sometimes and just average the rest of the time.
*) Level design ranges from 'good' to 'average' mainly because of texturing
*) Sidekicks : Interesting idea but really bad implementation. Sometimes they get in the way, won't do what you tell them to and get stuck in parts of the map. Plus if any of them dies, game over.
*) Same old enemy AI we've known for years (Run to player. Die)
*) Sound is just average
*) Sidekicks dialogue, voice acting and cutscenes are ridiculous and poorly done.
*) Need to find and pick up 'save gems' to be able to save the game.


Multiplayer :
-----------

Standard options here (DM, CTF)... but it's bad also. Weapons are unbalanced. Gameplay is way too much fast and frantic, making everything confusing. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for an intense MP experience but this is ridiculous. Intense <> Fast

Final thoughts :
--------------

I know this has been and will be repeated ad nauseaum in forums and reviews but it's true : It looks SO DATED !

Two years ago it would've been a great game. But it JUST CAN'T be now after Half-Life, Q3A, UT et al.
Cold, hard fact.

After all the hype all this years it doesn't even come close to what was promised. And of course it also doesn't come close from being a good game on its own merits without paying attention to all the hype.

It's bargain bin material

I thought it was pretty good...
