I don't find the sound effects to be "hilarious", but rather annoying. Neither the music. But especially the sound effects... They are awful. The graphics are good, but not that great, and we'll see about the gameplay. I really, really want to have an editor and the ability to switch to the classic sounds and/or graphics. Or the new graphics and the classic sounds. Let's hope John Romero will deliver on this. Also, beside the classic levels, I hope there will be at least one new level pack.

Wow, Clyde is like, actually going to be a character now and not just a name on a text screen? I'm psyched!

You know all the things I love about DOS games?

This has none of those things.

John Romero hasn't done anything of worth since the time of Keen to Quake, which was 1991-1996.

He also deleted me on Facebook about a month ago because he was offended by something I posted.

So yeah, Romero is a butthole and I regret ever inviting him to the PCKF IRC channel 4.5 years ago.

What? No... that's John Carmack you're talking about. The rest of ID not doing anything of worth since then doesn't count for them.

edit: Don't you think it's great that the gun and the jetpack are sitting right there in front of your face at the start of the first level? Modern game design is the best invention created by man next to fanfiction. :dopefish

Para, Romero is a happily married man. You never had a chance. It's time to move on and let it go, or it will consume you.

Everything Romero touches is instantly sacred. Yes, that includes Daikatana. How dare you criticize him.

The only thing you can really do is mail him love letters and hope they trigger a divorce.

I would never do such a thing. That would be terrible.

Though... he does have great hair and a ~fantastic~ smile...

No, no, this is wrong. Keep it together.

Romero said the game was just awaiting Apple's approval the other day on Facebook. He also listed like 10 languages it will be available in. Nice.
