    I am GMT+2, that is midnight to midday.
    Australia to Central Europe is p awfull as far as timezones go. We had an australian in a D&D game once, massive hassle.
    That said I wouldn't be able to free many Kalinites anyway, I played UT literally once before because it was included on the hard drive with cracked games we passed around on Lans to play WC3 and COD 4.
    I just wonder how well my experience from Counter Strike style shooters translates to Arena shooters.

    i don't know what happened with kalinites and why they were quarantined, neither i know if Crispy made the decision, but i'd say if they were banned unjustly restore them the access of rest of the forum and punish whoever banned them.
    i wont vote until i have more informations

    The game is liquid shit lol. Really bad level design and terrible weapons. Who the fuck decided that a shotgun that shoots three times on a mouse click is a good idea?!

    There are a number of issues with Daikatana but easily the most glaring ones revolve around your idiot NPC companions. As for a shotgun with burst fire capability? That's pretty damned awesome if you're dealing with spongy enemies.

    I feel like the people complain about the companions are probably the kinds of people who complain when any game is too hard, regardless of whether it's shit. And the thing is most of Daikatana is actually too easy most of the time, even on the hardest difficulty with limited saves. But liek, if u install mod to remove companions its gewd gaem now lmao!! < says the retard who misses the point, which is that the game is still bizarre eye vomit with extremely retarded design in all aspects

    multiplayer is pretty funny though

    The other points have already been belabored and are mostly valid criticisms. The NPCs are just an unnecessary and persistent annoyance. Can they be worked around? Yes. Should a player have to work around an idiotic game concept like that in the first place? No. "I CAN'T LEAVE MY BUDDY SUPERFLY BEHIND." Yes you fucking can he doesn't do anything worth a damn anyway. Where is he anyway? OH, RIGHT, STUCK ON A FUCKING LADDER NEAR THE BEGINNING OF THE LEVEL. That isn't difficulty, that's "the game designer really wanted you to like this retard and drag him around constantly despite our AI coding not being anywhere near up to snuff for it. You figure it out, lol". The rest of the design was an obvious, deliberate (and misguided) choice, but that? That's just Romero/Ion Storm's hackitude putting itself on full display, like a child that wants you to be proud of the fact that he just painted your entire kitchen with peanut butter.

    I won't disagree that the AI is retarded, but it's your fault if you've left them somewhere. What I'm saying is that the kind of people who go ‘oh yeah just delete the companions lol’ are the kinds of people who'd play Doom with full mouse-look. Besides, if you can't put up with one shitty thing, why bother playing it at all? It's not like the rest of the game is any better. Learning to put up with bullshit despite your butthurt is a good thing, you know.

    getting rid of an extremely-poorly implemented follower mechanic that does nothing for the already mediocre game = putting mouselook in a 2.5D game because you can't figure out how to kill the Icon of Sin

    good to know

    no, it's called the difference between "followers in Daikatana ACTIVELY make an already troubled game significantly less enjoyable" and "people are too stupid to figure out a basic fucking timing puzzle in an otherwise excellent game where the lack of mouseaim is not even a real impediment"

    Full mouselook + crosshair + autoaim off > vanilla setup. Especially for newer megawads.
