Bake Me A Daikatana

By Maarten Goldstein, Dec 08, 1999 2:19pm PST Total shocker news of the day, Daikatana won't make Christmas! Who would have thought huh? Apparently that gold CD that was submitted a while ago got rejected and now ION Storm is still slaving away at the game. The following comes from Evil Avatar, who supposedly got it from Gamefan, but the link doesn't work and I can't find it in their news section either.

Though it was reported 'round the Net that Daikatana, ION Storm's first-person shooter, went gold and would be in stores before Christmas, we just got off the horn with the 'peeps at Eidos regarding the state of the game, and guess what? It's not gold, or even close. The gold masters that were submitted have been rejected, and the team is back to work. According to our source, Daikatana will not make the holiday deadline.

5:00pm update Steve: The cook has released some new screenshots of Daikatana for episode2 that you guys can check out on Daikatana.com I've also got a huge index of Daikatana screenshots listed right here. Oh yeah, if you're wondering wtf that headline Maarten posted means, check out this article.

  • I have to agree with you...the amount of newbies today (yes bos and girls that means you 12-16 b0yz N gIrLz who skipped class to read this fine piece of literature) surpasses the newbies in newsgroups like this. Mostly because I think alot of what makes up the \"ancients\", feel these newsgroup tend to be more or less infantile more than anything with quotes like:

    \"HAHAHAHA HES IS A FAGS! DIKEDANANA IS A DUMB!!! ID RULES!!\"

    or...

    \"I AM HAVES A 3DFEX VODOO 5 AN 234MB REM WIT ANDS I GoTs 90MPH ATS 1200x480!!! YOU ARES A DUMB HAHAHA I WIL SHOT YUPOS IN THE ASS WIT MY RIALGUN!!!!!HAHAHAHA\"

    and even...

    \"Don\'t buy Quak3 cuz it sux!! The bots are UnR3alIsTick! UT is better! It has better graffics\"

    and yes even...

    \"I AM IN C CLAN WE ARE <<{{[[CLAN 40 OUNCE]]]}}>> I AM m0rpheu40ounce] AND ROMERO IS A FAG!!! ID RUL3Z!!!!!\"

    ...it saddens me...how uneducated alot of people are whom frequent this newsgroup. I dig Steve and he knows his shit (though I do have to say Steve, after that pic of you today I have to wonder ;), one of the only main reasons I post here...

    please before you decide to go off on your ridiculously stupid banter, laden with homoerotic sexual undertones, and really when it comes down to it, displaying your lack of intelligence or experience in this industry...educate yourself...or at least..just try not to pretend you know what you are talking about...as Im sure alot of us are kinda sick of it...I actually don\'t know why I am ranting about this...sheer boredom and a lack of the ol\' lube might be the problem...

    UNLEARN

  • #138 I realize you realize a bunch of stuff. Gee, imagine me standing behind a genuinely nice guy like Romero rather than a community full of people that send me hate mail like all the ION stuff is my fucking fault. Let\'s face it, until you put the cd in your computer and play all four episodes in singleplayer and then try all four episodic flavors of deathmatch and CTF and deathtag and coop dm, you don\'t really know dick. If your battlecruiser analogy was real, Eidos woulda taken the first release candidate and shipped it.

    your penance is to go to my site and refresh fifty times. heh :)
