RAGE On PC: A Love/Hate Relationship

Our RAGE review will be coming on Monday, due to the fact that my computer’s PSU blew up and took my motherboard with it.

Now, ironically, I haven’t had any issues that other PC gamers seem to be having, especially ATI owners, with their video card drivers not getting along with the game, causing all sorts of texture issues, frame rate drops, and pop-ins.

Now, the pop-ins themselves seem to be an unfortunate part of the game; I have them at a very minimal level. But the frame rate issues plagued me early on, due in part to the fact that I wasn’t able to set triple buffering and vertical sync in-game; I had to do it through my nVIDIA  control panel. [...]

Hype Machine: An Hour With Rage

I found myself sitting in front of a screen with a pair of headphones on, wondering what was going to befall me. I was given an hour today to play Rage, the game id Software has been working on for about four years now. Now, I’ve been keeping myself in the dark about this game intentionally. I much prefer to start playing a game with no expectations, so I can’t be let down. An incredibly large asteroid hits Earth in the opening cinematic. Before this happens, the Ark project is launched. Arks are buried deep underground with genetic samples, knowledge, and people. Those that dwell inside are considered humanity’s hope for the future. I woke up in a stasis chamber about 100 years after [...]

No Classic Deathmatch Experience In Rage

As the creators of the online deathmatch which so many online gamers are accustomed to, it would be assumed that id would be continuing with this style of online play. However, they are going in a different direction with the multiplayer in the upcoming game Rage, which now involves vehicles. Tim Willits, id’s Creative Director, had this to say about multiplayer;

“Rage has a unique multiplayer experience that is not your standard on-foot deathmatch, which is something that we invented”

“We feel the vehicle aspect of it is a lot of fun to drive, to shoot guys, to fight so we wanted to let people do that with their friends”

This news [...]

Issue #1 of RAGE the Comic is Now Avalaible

Tie-in media is becoming increasingly popular with video game launch preparation. From exploratory apps bringing us up to speed in the world of Alice: The Maddness Returns to developers encouraging their waiting masses to participate in the game’s creation through suggestion contests.

RAGE is going the way of its apocalyptic comrade, inFAMOUS, with a comic that will build us up and explain the world. One of the most difficult aspects of story telling is world-building without info-dumping.

Players won’t want to read an essay about why everything is as it is before they begin playing, but developers didn’t simply create a game, they created a world and [...]

New RAGE Gameplay Video – The Well

There can never be enough gameplay videos of RAGE. That is, until I have the game in my hot little hands and gameplay if real and in full effect. Until then, we get to see “The Well”.

In ‘The Well’, we take you into the town of Wellspring as it’s being terrorized by a bandit clan threatening to poison the town’s water supply. The ransacked well must be infiltrated and the bandit threat of lethal contamination must be stopped.

Blake Griffin is not in RAGE… Yet.

NBA super star and slam dunk champion, Blake Griffin is part of a new ad campaign for RAGE. Though Griffin is extremely talented in areas completely unrelated to the game, a first person shooter, he is campaigning to get himself in it. Somewhere. Anywhere.
