I need scissors! 61!

Looks cool but can I tape a flash light to my gun?

Maybe it's a mark of how spoilt we are that this looks pretty generic.

The graphics engine itself looks pretty slick. I'm sure iD are hoping to license this on to others ala Epic.

I don't see how I am going to any great lengths to omit any of their differences to make them seem similar when they are very much similar games from a gameplay standpoint. Please tell me how my comparison is terrible? Do both games have their fair share of differences? Absolutely, but I don't think it's very hard at all to see similarities between the two games without discounting their differences. What I described in my reply are very specific game mechanics not abstract mechanics. I'm not saying that the two are similar just because they have guns and are first person. If I had, then I would concede you were right, but I feel I've made very specific comparisons. If someone had gotten into games only 5 years or so ago asked me what Deus Ex was like, I would undoubtedly use Fallout 3 as an example, qualifying that it isn't open world and stat heavy.

And I'm not selling Fallout 3 short. Did I say I ever hated that game? No, It's one of my favorite games of this generation, so no need to go gung ho defense on it. I qualified my statement by saying "production quality wise" so as not to say it is an inferior game on its own. By production quality I mean graphics, animation, and art direction.

Fallout much
I don't see any of Fallout's 50's inspired style in this game... It's much more similar to Mad Max in aesthetic. Which is pretty much exactly what they were going for, what with the dystopian battle arenas and desert buggy races.
 
Game could be good but it all depends on how the basic shooting feels, as well as if the story is doing anything interesting with the setting.

This has console written all over it.

Cross platform? HYPED.

This game is either going to be really good, or I will forget about it a couple of weeks after I finish it.

How many more decades before we're done with the "I'm an NPC, so I only stand in this one spot and never go anywhere -- unless I'm an NPC in a stealth game, in which case I move along a very rigid pre-defined path like an idiot" thing?

I was sorta digging the atmosphere of the game before it became a shooter and became shoot guys until they fall over: the video game. Honestly, it looks slow and uneventful. I'm bored just watching the video!

Finally they fixed the blade so it swoops to the side and not your face when it returns.
 
Game looks amazing.

Too bad MS is not on board with Valve using Steamworks with XBL. Xbox360 will be the only system that will miss out on cross-platform playing over network play.  MS you need to have a meet with Valve and come to some agreement and expand your options with this. Patch updates would be updated immediately, mod options, happy consumers and more.    
 
Off topic a little :Even Bethesda with Skyrim is going to have modding options for the PC and consoles, the   Skyrim Creation Kit  and hopefully this will not be a conflict with MS as well.

Ok, i'm gonna put my left nut on the table and say that the Mayor is Colonel Campbell from Metal Gear. Raiden! Get the chaff !

I haven't played any MGS games, but I knew I'd recognized this voice from somewhere. After a bit of digging around, I found it. He voiced Eldred in fucking Sacrifice! Man, that game was awesome.

why does the person playing have the reflexes of a corpse?

Bethesda has stated they have no intention of licensing out id Tech 5. They see it as an asset to have id Tech 5 be exclusive to Bethesda-published games.

And all these videos of Rage have been 30 fps, when I think a large part of what will make Rage impressive is its 60 hertz frame rate. While a faster frame rate isn't going to change the fundamental visual design, it can make a big difference in how we perceive visual quality.

This game was featured in the opening scene of Breaking Bad tonight.  And surprisingly, it was product placement that wasn't awkwardly placed in at the last minute.  It fit the situation and the mindset the characters were in.

Have to hand it to Rage, game looks really good especially considering the scope/openess of the world.

0:35 It's Campbell from Metal Gear Solid!!! :D

Gibs!

Glad id is continuing their tradition of making enemies being blown apart look awesome.

Posted by Ghost_Cat

The sound design is amazing (and loud)!  Nothing wrong with old-fashion shooters, as long as the shooting feels good.

Colonel! GOD DAMN you let yourself go!

@Hashbrowns:

Its not so much Bethesda as it is id. Carmack discussed it during his keynote at QuakeCon 2011, they were simply not a great at supporting anyone who licensed from them.

However he did announce that id Tech 4 will be released publicly soon (Doom 3 source code). I would expect it after Prey 2 ships, since that is the id tech 4 engine.

No one will remember Rage 3 months after its out.

I bet you 20 Brad Buck$ that we will.

I will put my 20 brad buck$ in as well.

The game looks interesting but the fact that it took that many rockets to kill a single dude really bums me out, it kinda reminds me of the rocket launchers in Borderlands, looked cool but it was more show than go.

They were heavily armored and its meant to be a tougher fight.

@EthanielRain said:

@ ~4:15, rocket gets shot through guy's legs & the guy brings his hand down to cover his crotch like "ho-lee shit!" Good AI. Seriously though, can't wait to fork over my $ for this.

This is why when people complain about the animation I am flabbergasted. Same complaints for years now and It irks me.

@MajorToms said:

"...when it comes to animation they let it sort of fall to the wayside.

"The lip-syncs seem to be slapped together very lazily and the facial animations are even worse..."

You really are being overly critical. I can't argue that it doesn't bother you, but trust me that the animations are not lazily put together. Also to let yourself just cast the thought that artists are "letting" their work fall to the way side is just insulting. Especially for a giant 3D game of this caliber, they have put in excruciating work and it shows. I've yet to personally even hear an animator/artist negatively quip about RAGE.

@Vager said:

Wow, looks amazing. Character animations could use some work though.

So what would you do? Because given the tech, time, and fidelity I'm pretty sure they have pushed it as far as they can.

I know this game will annoy me because I want to shoot that tatooed fuck already and I know only good games give you such freedoms and this doesn't look good enough.

@calumlittle: flawless logic

Posted by calumlittle

@david3cm: lol, fearsome sarcasm! After the QL I changed my mind and if these fucks on the Bay don't start seeding then I may just buy this game, and another few gigs of RAM. From what I hear my Crisis 2 on max computer might not be up to the job. We'll see. Thanks for the reply!
