Daikatana DM

A lot of people don’t know about Daikatana, or they think that it must be awful from all the criticism of it from when it first came out. I hadn’t played it in a long time, and barely played it even when I did, until I came across “Daikatana DM” on John Romero’s website. It’s a 114MB archive of a stripped down version of Daikatana for playing Death Match. It’s loads of fun and very addicting, the engine could use some updating and more resolution options, but the game content and gameplay is great for a game on the Quake II engine. If you like older First Person Shooters then you’ll like it. I started it up and decided to cam a jump video just for fun.

I want to enter in the Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC), I hope it will hit somewhere near me (Chicago?) during the eight-month tour, I don’t think I could pull off a road trip to Texas or New York just for gaming, even if it is professional.
