->''"Yes it seems that 3D realms have been doing something other than [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/1999/11/03/ giving each other piggyback rides]] for the last 10 years. In a stroke all the anticipation we haven't felt since 1998 returned like a tazer gun to the base of the spine. I just hope that 3D realms understands that if this game doesn't turn out to be history's greatest contribution to human culture and the cure for at least one type of cancer, then [[HypeBacklash I and ever other reviewer on earth are going to saw its bollocks off]]."''

->"The folks at 3D Realms [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity are going to be happy we're printing this. They'll say that it's simply a testament to the character's popularity]], and after all this time, that people are STILL so concerned with the next ''Duke Nukem'' title. They may well be right. But there's a line -- let's call it the "''VideoGame/{{Daikatana}}'' Line" -- where the general public opinion goes from amused to frustrated. We've crossed that line, I think, and the only way to recover from it is for the game to deliver an absolutely unheralded and unparalleled gaming experience. It has to make ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' look outdated[[note]]This was written in mid-2003, before ''[=HL2=]'' had even had its first major delay[[/note]]."\\
