The levels weren't the worst of the demo. If they had released a demo without the freaking sidekicks, they might have tricked me into wasting my money on the game.

Demos are a different matter. Daikatana's demo sucked. But by playing the demo you're saying the demo sucked, not the game - get it right. If you buy Daikatana and think it sucked then you have every right to say that it sucked.

Well actually i live in a relatively free society, i can say it sucks even if i don't know what the hell it is. Beyond that, i can justifiably state that it sucks just based on playing the demo (i couldn't even finish the demo) if the reasons I believe the game sucks, are such that they will remain in the rest of the game i have not experienced.

The stupid save game gems.
The horrible voice acting and ridiculous stereotypes.
Painfully hideous teammate AI.

Wasting countless hours playing the full game (plus whatever the game costs out of the bargain bin) would only expose me more to the things i hate, leading to move from merely thinking the game sucks, to a point where i think the game desiners owe me for my time wasted.

The above are not the extent of the reasons i thought it sucked, there are many others, but they are less set in stone and "could" simply exist in the few places in the game that i saw.

For instance, Obviously dated engine, horrible monster AI.
stupid annoying monsters (mosquitos and frogs), annoying sound effects.

Now if my problems were that i simply didn't like the design of the levels, or the monsters, those are opinions that could be changed by furhter playing the game and seeing more of the content, but the sidekicks, no amount of playing the game will help me like it?

You mentioned movies as a comparison, I don't need to sit thru an entire steven segal movie to realize it sucks ass. If i can make that determination in less than the hour and a half playing time of the movie, why would i need 20 hours to know daikantana sucks.

You realize that when you take the time to spout drivel in my direction you make me more powerful. Or have you learned that yet?

Apparently you didn't notice you are on the wrong side of the food chain. We're not arguing with you or getting upset at your comments. We're mocking you, and enjoying it. You have no power now, nor will you ever, but don't let that bring you down. As long as we're laughing at you you're still part of the laughter.

Thank you, keep up the good work.

I think this is exactly the kind of analysis that needs to be done on Motorcycle helmet laws. By requiring riders to wear helmets we probably are saving lives, but who said that has to be a good thing. Considering wearing a helmet does not offer any protection to the neck and back, we are actually increasing long term and short term medical costs by having to treat the injuries of people who would not have made it, and the long term cost of care for quadriplegics. And while i'm sure quadriplegics don't have to be a drain on society, weather they are or not would depend partly on their intellect. Now think of the motorcycle riders you know...

Acknowledging plot development is not a strong point of the company, id is including a sheet of acid with every game to increase game "immersion."

CNN missed another small part of the bizzare story. The ambulance carrying the arm got in a wreck on the way to the hospital.

Not likely. id releases compatability tests because their new engines are large departures from their previous works. Consider Q3:A/TA as involved, entertaining compatablity tests.

Despite getting screwed/snubbed/dumped (whichever you prefer) by EA and then Valve, Rogue needs somthing to do. They haven't announced what they are working on, but with their familiarity with the Q3 engine and tools, I'd say an id collaboration along the lines of the Gray Matter and Wolfenstein would be a distinct possiblity.

Your missing much of the hidden subtext, for instance: The zombies are our hidden selves, freeing them of their immortal coil by turning them inside out with a grenade represents breaking thru our fear and letting the world see us for who we really are. The ammo box most definately tolls for thee.

Going by total number (to say nothing of total time) HBO still shows more movies a day than mtv does videos.

I'm really quite tolerant of movies (it has to be really bad for me to say it sucks) so take my recommendation with a grain of salt.

It wasn't spectacular, but i didn't feel like i wasted 7 bucks (hell actually i didn't, i just remembed i forgot to repay the person who bought it) If your capable of just sitting back and not thinking while you're watching the movie, you might even enjoy it.

On a side note, knowing they were padded even took some of the "Baywatch chicks running on the beach" fun out of it. I mean they are a superb set of C's (see "Gia") who cares how close they were to the video game.

But clever Japanese farmers have solved this dilemma by forcing their watermelons to grow into a square shape. Farmers insert the melons into square, tempered glass cases while the fruit is still growing on the vine.

Has anyone told the bonsai kitten people?
