I don't know if we'll ever see that game. Just when they are about to release it, Epic and Id up the ante.

I bet a year ago that game woulda kicked @ss. But compared to UT and Q3, I'm sure it'll never live up to its hype.

Think Carmack will take Romero back?

It looked like a hodge-podge of technologies and ideas that had been cobbled together over years of development.

I used to dislike the guy, but now I feel really sorry for Romero. The rumors are that Eidos is going to come in real soon and clean house.

Oh you just gotta know that there are many Eidos execs just wanting to see heads roll.

How much money has Eidos fronted (read: lost)... for literally no return?

haha, $3 million....More like 15, 75 long term (if the relationship sticks). In their contract it states they have to make 4 games a year. That hasn't happenned...The only reason I know this is because I worked with a ex-game director from Eidos. He left because of Ion Storm

Anyway, NextGen has some interesting facts about Ion Storm. Looks like the rumors are true:

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>
According to an IGNPC report today Eidos has laid down the law with Ion Storm's troubled first-person shooter, Daikatana. The game has undergone several delays already and rumors indicate that Eidos is running out of patience with John Romero's latest.
According to IGNPC's source close to the project Eidos has given the Ion Storm team 24-hours to come up with a solid build of the game. Failing to make this deadline would result in the game missing its December release, and mean yet another addition to the growing catalog of postponements the title has experienced in its development.

The source could not confirm that the ultimatum was due to Eidos rejecting the initial build of the game as has been rumored. The official line from Eidos remains that the developer is still working for a December release.
