It's not an indie darling game so I say he will give it 4 stars.

Never touched the game, haven't really seen too much of it. All I know is that it's id, and Brad loves John Carmack. So four stars.

Going with 4. I think the game looks cool.

He gave Renegade Ops a 5 so I don't see why this would get anything lower.

But realistically this game should be a 4.

I havent seen huge amounts of the game but what i have played looks very fun. It'll probably have some sort of flaw though so I guess it'll get a 4.

I finally seen a trailer that made the gameplay look fun but I still stand by my 'great' estimate so 4 stars.

4 stars sounds about right.

5. Don't forget that he worships John Carmack.

4 stars. For me, any other outcome seems completely impossible.

5. This guy loves Carmack so much he got flustered when he had a chance to interview him and Klepek ended up doing it instead. Total bromance.

I'm guessing 4 stars, though I honestly wouldn't be surprised if it got lower or higher than that...it's hard to say.

Already have my copy preordered, so I don't care that much either way. Well, unless it flat out sucks and get horrible reviews across several websites.

4 stars, but 5 super shotguns.

Predicting a 4, but a love for all things Carmack may bump it up to a 5.

Game has not had much press, which means Bethesda doesn't seem that impressed at the games overall quality, they don't want to spend much on marketing a bomb.

It's likely a 3-out-of-5 star game. good ideas, but more of a tech demo than a solid game.

I had to go with 5. Maybe I'm dreaming, but I think Brad gives a whole lot of 5's.

4. The game doesn't seem stellar but really good. Hell probably 5 it could really be something special.

On a sidenote I misread this post as: Which score will Rage give Brad and my answer to that question is 2.

After his 5 stars to LA Noire and 4 to Infamous 2, I take Brad's cautiously

I told him to give it a five. i'm sure he will do it because I said so...seriously, betting 4/5, unless it pisses him off for some reason.

5 stars. I placed a bet on him giving Rage 5-stars so he better do it.

and 4 star Far Cry 2.

Also Brad said Dead Space 2 took around 9-12 hours to complete if I remember right...facepalm.

Lol wat? Where did you get that idea? I've seen a ton of Rage ads both on TV and in the real world (it's all over the buses and telephone booths in New York), not to mention the entire discussion on the last Bombcast about how they shoved the game into Breaking Bad. Bethesda is leaning into this game HARD.

4 stars seems obvious. It's probably a solid experience filled with bugs and a forgetful story. Shooting and gameplay will be fun though.

Exactly this, I can't tell if this game is a 4 or a 5. Maybe if there's a tonne of weapon variety, but I'm kinda worried that every level's gonna be the same...

I don't read things, so I guess I'll find out on the quick look.

Somewhere between 1 and 5 Stars.  Are these fucking threads going to pop up for every major release?  These are almost as bad as those threads that tell you how you are wrong for liking popular well reviewed games.

And the fact that there's bin a 5-minute video of practically each mission in the game coming out like every week for the past year.

@Anwar
The real irony is that I probably only pull the trigger on one post in 6.  But posts that single out Brad are often some kind of dig at him that I feel is undeserved, so they tend to get my dander up.  I probably would have said nothing if Brad's name hadn't been in the title.

It's probably not meant to be a comment about id and more a comment about large, open worldy games in general. Though, I honestly haven't seen enough of this game to have a sense of how expansive or open worldy it is. I barely know anything about this game! Just that it does, like, a lot of stuff?

If we already know what score Brad will give a game before he has reviewed it before it is out do we really need a review?

Honestly, this game must have the most aggressive game marketing in a long time. They even downgrade Breaking Bad for their fucking Rage marketing needs q.q

I honestly haven't seen much. A few banner ads, but I've yet to see a t.v. spot, and the fact that I haven't even seen anything (and I watch a lot of various media) seems to make me think they aren't putting that much into it. I watch a lot of T.V, a lot of HULU, go to a lot of various websites, especially video-content providing ones, and I've yet to see a RAGE ad. If this is the most aggressive game marketing you've seen, you've been in a cave.

Are you retarded? There's been half a dozen if not more gameplay trailers showing almost full mission playthroughs mostly unedited. They have great confindance in their visuals and gameplay that's been the entire marketing with the game.

Yeah it's not been Homefront-levels of marketing or COD or anything, I'm just sayin that they're not burying it.
