$9.99 on Amazon

#1 Edited by Sackmanjones (4711 posts) -

Just wanted to let everyone know that Rage is on a great sale at Amazon for everything except mac (sorry guys). Since June and July are pretty barren I would highly suggest picking it up. It does have a few technical issues but overall it looks beautiful and my experience on the ps3 was just fine. Its a pretty damn good shooter and 10 bucks is a steal for it. Hope some of you duders take advantage of this if you missed out!

Ten bucks is really good for that game.

Anyone know if the retail box is Steam compatible?

In the interest of balance, I thought that Rage was MAD BORING and I stopped after about an hour. It's like Borderlands minus the fun.

Rage was... ok. Simple as that. For $10 its totally worth a look.

Thanks for the heads up, I just bought it.

While browsing Amazon I saw that Singularity is up there for three bucks now. I just laughed. Poor guys.

10$ for rage is still 11$ to mutch.

Wasn't going to buy this because I'd rather have it on Steam but if it activates there, I'll go pick it up right now. $10 sounds just right for that game.

It's nothing like Borderlands but for the setting, though you'd know that if you had played it for any significant length of time.

I found Borderlands pretty boring but I trudged on through about 12 hours of that game just to be sure.

The setting and the missions structure and the open world. The shooting mechanics are a bit more fluid I'll grant you, but they aren't especially fun to use.

I picked up a copy for $10 recently and my initial impression is that it's worth that amount. I don't like the driving bits, but the shooting parts are good. Really nothing interesting story wise so far, but I'm pretty new in Wellspring. Unlike Borderlands which I recently replayed, I don't have much urge to push forward. There's no carrot for the stick, if you will. But, at $10 there's enough entertainment to make it worth the expense.

Just make sure you manually save often, because the auto-save is archaically spaced.

Thanks for the notice, just bought it along with The Witcher II.

10 dollars it is worth it. Great game in the technical sense, with it's most dissapointing flaws amiolated by the fact you didn't pay what, 59.99 for that pc game? Good shooting, almost great racing. For 10 dollars you can enjoy that game and laugh off the rest.

Rage =/= Borderlands. Change your expectations.

And, If you didn't find the wingstick fun as shit and exciting to use, I really don't know what to tell you.

Same here, I was pretty disappointed

I probably should go back to that game, really did like it's live action feel but it never grabbed me. Probably put in 3 hours the terrible checkpoint system didn't help to be honest.

Definitely worth it. Not quite as good as I was expecting, but still good.

Thanks for the heads up! I've played a friend's copy and it's a good game, but bogs down in those stupid non-combat towns. Good aside from that.

#23 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

@rebgav: I really REALLY didn't enjoy the time that I spent with that game, regardless of it's similarity to anything else.

Pretty sure all versions should be, as it's a Bethesda game.

I picked this up. I've loved all their past games. Im looking forward to playing this one.

#26 Posted by MightyDuck (1522 posts) -

Just picked this up on Amazon for $9.99 as well. Sounds like it'll at least be worth the $10.

#27 Posted by Solh0und (1783 posts) -

Gamefly is also selling it for 9.99

raven said they wanted to make a sequel back in 2010 but seeing the current state of the studio you're probably right

It makes me sad to see how activision has relegated and diminished a really great developer. Hopefully they let them work on a project of their own soon. Hopefully it is not Call of Duty. I don't have anything against CoD, but i would like to see Raven do something more unique than a military shooter. Something like Singularity 2 which will literally never happen.

@TentPole That's Activision's M.O.

I mean, I was a fervent Bizzare Creations fan. And Activision fucking haymakered that studio.

Just picked up a boxed copy- I've never added a boxed game to Steam before, since I only just bought a gaming PC- it's a purchase more of curiosity than wanting to play this game (but I've heard it's really, really pretty, so I'll give it a shot).

#35 Posted by ozzdog12 (861 posts) -

@believer258: Thats a steal. I really enjoyed RAGE, I dont get why people thought it was a 'bad' game

#36 Posted by ds8k (413 posts) -

Eh, I'll wait for it to be 5 bucks on Steam.
