John Romero will make you his bitch! What a putz this guy turned out to be. After "leaving" idsoftware, the guy basically had a blank check to write his own game. Of course, he blew a lot of the money on lavish offices and lived a rockstar's life as long as he possibly could before Eidos finally DEMANDED results.

And when we did finally get to see Daikatana, it was not a top-tier title we had been promised and certainly not worth all of the fanfare. What amazes me most is that there are still companies willing to work with him on anything. You now have an entire generation of gamers who probably don't even know the guy's name.

Ughh! Chances are he's going to come up with Daikatanaville. If I get a single "Oh No! John Smith's submachinegun is broken, will you help him find parts?" on my FB page, I am going to be very mad.

Romero is now working for LOLapps, a Facebook gaming company. Oh how the mighty have fallen. He's probably just happy to make a paycheck now.

Too true.. it's like if Metallica didn't manage to hold onto the fans they did and began cutting albums of nursery rhymes, claiming it's "where the excitement is now."

.. Though it IS where the money is. Maybe it is the first step on Romero's road to glorious redemption?
 
Just what Facebook needs, another crappy game for friends and family to bombard you with requests to help/join/play. As if Facebook isn't painful enough as it is.....Thanks (heavy sarcasm) for nothing!
