  • Excerpt: It's time once again to delve into the wonderful wold of first person shooter mediocrity. This time around it comes in the form of Daikatana. After reading an ad that proclaimed I should let John Romero make me his bitch after playing his game, I figured why not.

  • Summary: After more than three years in production, Daikatana, the first game developed entirely in-house by Ion Storm, has been released. And it's pretty bad.
