RAGE

Yeah, so I'm really pissed off right now. Just a bunch of retarded things have happened. Aha, okay not actually. This is about Id's new game RAGE and the creators of the FPS genre look like they have another masterpiece on their hands. I've been casually following it, but now that is coming so, oh so very close to its release date, I've started to follow it a bit more closely.

Now I personally like the idea of the different ammo types. Brings a ton of variety in ways you can kill your enemies. I know other games have done this, but I don't know of any games that have mind control ammo. Mind control ammo just sounds extremely bad ass to me. Using your enemies to explode other enemies just appeals to me. And you have the classic stuff like exploding and electricity. Which are awesome in their own right.Strategy starts to turn its head as well. Enemies in the water. Electric bolts, Problem solved. Same thing with explosive ammo involving enemies near big crates/barrels with fire symbols on them. Problem solved.

The game it self looks amazing. The whole environment looks beautiful, maybe not so unique, as there has been  a few post apocalypse games released in recent years. It looks like they did it right though. And they say it's going to still run at 60 fps on current consoles. I'm going to pay to see that, cause my computer would probably up and died if i tried to play it. The animations look very good, and it appears that each character you talk to has their own facial animations. So you won't be looking at the exact same animation for most of the game when you to talk to someone.

The story is basic. Tyrannical oppressors trying to rule the wastelands, and a resistance fighting against them. Big and innovative story right? But the story appears to be implemented well, and told well so that it isn't you have to read some books to understand what is actually happening or go out of your way to see how the Authority is beating the shit out of the people. Yup. In before that's the story of Starcraft which you said you like so much. I'm allowed double standards too D:

I forgot what i was going to put here. Derp. I'll update later when i remeber what i was going to put for this part.  HAHA I remembered! The whole being able to make it into a "thinking mans game" via the engineering thing is pretty cool IMO. Explosive RC car and buildable (Proper spelling?) turrets and other things sound pretty cool and could add to the game immensely. Also that boomerang of death. I like the concept and hope it lives up to the awesomeness i have pictured in my big head. :d
I just see a game game that's going to be winning awards out of the wazoo. Small video for those who haven't seen anything on RAGE yet. Id's Got another good game on their hands man, I cannot wait to play this game.



THATS ALL FOR NOW. Also Suggest a game i should take a look at or buy or what ever. I've only played a small selection of games. :p

  5. I'm very looking forward to this game. The story/setting is alittle too cliche for my tastes, but I think the gameplay and id tech 5 engine will make up for that.
