Borderlands 2! oh wait it's just Rage ...

By: goukijones Feb 17, 2011 | 6 Comments

It's just the new Rage trailer no big deal. Stop giving yourself awards from E3 like you just won game of the year.

At E3 2010, we were not allowed inside the private booth showing Rage. It could have been the alcohol on my breath or that I hit on the PR girl like 5 times while trying to convince her to let us in. We didn't miss much from what I understand. Although aparently Rage won like 500 E3 awards. WTF is an E3 award? Developers barely show playable demos at the show. I'm all for saying, I'm most hyped for this game or this game looks like it's going to be a lot of fun when it comes out. Guess what it's not out. Rage especially, it's going to be at E3 again this year. So what does that mean? Another 500 E3 awards. sad face. 

From YouTube: We've released a new trailer for RAGE, the highly anticipated shooter from id Software. The trailer features an original track, Burning Jacob's Ladder, by singer Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age, Gutter Twins).

RAGE features intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id's revolutionary id Tech™ 5 technology. Set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, you emerge into a vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and more. From the pioneers of first-person shooter gameplay, RAGE promises an experience like no other.

RAGE is slated for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in North America on September 13th and across Europe on September 16th. For more information on RAGE visit www.RAGE.com.

Id software's rage engine set to blow the shit out of everything on ios 4 and any other platforms. PS2 games running on rage give PS3 games a run for their money.

Carmack's demonstration, using the id Tech 5 engine, could possibly be the most impressive tech we've seen on the iPhone. Running on the iPhone 4 but easily run on the 3GS, the visuals indeed rivaled anything from the PlayStation 2 and original Xbox, and might even be able to give a few current-gen titles a run for their money.

Well unfortunately I can't seem to get the pictures or the video  of the demo up but trust me it is sweet. Imagine playing high end games on your smart phone running faster than they ran on your consoles.

A new Rage gameplay video was released this morning and I gotta say, I realzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. This game is starting to look more and more like the same old shit to me. Sad face.

I want to see something innovative with FPS. A remote control car that you drive around and blow up? Seen that before, years ago. The driving in Rage doesn't look all that great either, probably a step up from Borderlands, at least in the combat area. But when you shoot and blow up a vehicle and it disintegrates, in your pretty little Rage engine, I gotta ask, where did all of the parts of the car go? Developer cop out? Anyway what's your thoughts, I'm not to hype about a prettier, single player version of Borderlands. 

RAGE - The Shrouded Official Gameplay Trailer

BTW the spider thing is bad ass, especially when it pounces on that one Jimmy. But is that all you got?

Every now and then you either do so well that someone is yelling at you for it, or you get angry yourself and decide to call it quits. Take a look at the infamous art of rage quitting xD

You're unleashing hell on you're opponent, you've anticipated their every move. Suddenly their dizzied and you're about to unleash either your Ultra that you've earned through focus attacking, or Super. When all of a sudden, the screen reads "Connection with the other player(s) has been lost" and you hit OK.

 

There has never been such a chump move in the history of gaming other than hitting pause during a match to mess up your opponent's timing xD

Rage Quitting. It has almost become an art for the many times players have done it. Either in the Street Fighter series or other games. People get salty and say goodbye.

  

 

 

Even better are the ones that leave angry messages in your mail XD 

 

But I love how some people respond to these rage messages XDXD

 

Rage quitters and raging sore losers are all over the place on XBOX LIVE. They come in all ages, males and females alike. But nobody likes losing, it's true. But the best way to deal with that is to practice. Last night by chance I also played against Cinderkin online. He plays a mean Yun and I am proud to say he is neither a rage quitter or a rage messager :D

 

Today the date is 6/23/2011, and I recieved my Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition in the mail thanks to Capcom =D! It came with the bobble heads and I'm hyped XD

Rage has Actual Gameplay Footage of The Well

By: goukijones Jun 3, 2011 | 5 Comments

Now this trailer starts off saying "Actual Gameplay footage" Bethesda knows to show off the goods. The only problem is ...

The only problem is there doesn't look like there is anything special about this game except the graphics. And I don't give a fuck about graphics. Standard guns, you got a boomerang rail tool for your left hand and that's it. The city and the environments look cool and that will probably be enough for me to play Rage. Otherwise it just looks like another FPS still.

Rage, Here comes another horror style FPS

By: DragonKiss83 Oct 17, 2011 | 4 Comments

Id Software has brought us a decent horror FPS, but the timing could have been better.

If you are a fan of horror based first person shooters Rage is a game you should check out, when you get the time.  FPS games have flooded the market all year long but right now we have Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4 right around the corner it's hard to justify buying another shooter at the moment.  And if you look at the pile of recent releases there is a good chance you have picked up a few other fps recently.  I personally could wait until Borderlands 2 comes out to buy another shooter.

The driving bits are kind of fun and if you are on the four wheeler you can get launched off by running into something, that was great for a laugh.  But you do have some races you must do to get through the story and some give you weapons.  This is also available for some multiplayer action online.

I only played for a few hours but the weapons didn't seem to have much variety (Borderlands has spoiled me) you start with a pistol, later you pick up a shotgun, a sniper rifle, an assault rifle you can buy, and this wicked crossbow.  You can upgrade the weapons a little, but from the looks of it they are just minor tweaks.  With the pistol you also get a couple choices of ammo, so later in the game you could get more choices.

Overall the game was pretty fun, the story feel a little generic, you are a survivor that was lost in time who wakes up to a world in turmoil.  It's not bad, just not original.  But in most cases if you are playing a fps it's because you want to shoot shit and there is plenty of that.  You do get some boss fights mixed in to give you some variety.

So my official verdict is Rent It, but if they could have slipped it into a gap between games it could have got a buy it.

 

Here's your first look of what actually gameplay will be like for Rage. Rage is the new shooter published by Bethesda and developed by id Software.

Borderlands fans, let me hear you. This has got to remind you of that game a little bit. However, Rage will feature actually vehicle combat. But you still have to drive out into the middle of a death storm to find an upgrade for your defibrillator. The guns don't look too original, but this trailer only shows off a few. The Jimmy playing is a complete nub with that crossbow thingy. And the left handed boomerang of death, same thing as the Bloodwing. Just sayin' ...

RAGE Gameplay Trailer - Dead City

Bethesda Softworks has announced that they will be working with Del Rey Books on a Novel for their highly anticipated RAGE the video game. Check out the press release info.

RAGEis the latest game from id® Software, the acclaimed designers of such classics as the Wolfenstein®, DOOM®, and QUAKE® series. Eagerly awaited by the gaming community, RAGEis already being touted as one of the industry’s most innovative first-person shooters, winning numerous awards at E3 2010, including ‘Best Overall Game of Show’ from IGN and three ‘Best of E3’ Game Critics Awards including ‘Best Console Game’. Set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, you emerge into a vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and more.

The novel delves even deeper into this world and its characters through the pen of Matt Costello--the same person who helped write the story for the game. The world was doomed and only some of the population could be saved. That was what the scientists were saying, at least. So the best and brightest were gathered and put into stasis deep beneath the surface of the Earth--buried so that man could live.

When Lt. Nick Raine emerges from his Ark, he finds the human race has not been wiped out. And people, as resilient as they are, are scraping together a new world from the rubble of the old.  This was not what anyone in the Arks expected--a new society where might is right, mutants plague the Earth, and “friend” is a term for the person who hasn't stabbed you in the back.

For you Jimmys following this game, will be glad to know that the Novel is scheduled to release August 30, 2011. Are you at all excited for the novel? How about the game? Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!

Rage makes a great tech demo, but a poor game

By: BatRastered Nov 3, 2011 | 6 Comments

This is not a full-on review, but I fn hated this game. Bethesda 0 for 2 this year, after this and the Brink. I hope Skyrim can save them.

I don't think you should give a full-on review of a game if you haven't put in enough hours to beat it. I'd make an exception if the game was so hard or broken that I couldn't beat it, but that's not the problem with Rage. The problem is I just don't want to play it anymore. So... this is not really a review, you should take my opinion with a huge grain of salt because I've only played about 4 hours of Rage.

Let me start off by saying that Rage is beautiful. As a tech demo for id software's new engine, it is amazing. The lighting, the textures, everything looks great even on the now 6 year old Xbox 360. Once you get beyond the game's good looks though, you start to realize that you're not having any fun. This took me about 30 minutes to realize.

Rage looks like it has an open world, but you don't really have anywhere to explore, and the game doesn't offer any rewards to do so (at least not in the first 4 hours). When you talk to the townsfolk to get a mission, Rage doesn't take you into a cinema, but instead dialog takes place in-engine. This is good, but there is no way to skip any of it and the way it works is downright annoying. You push the button to talk, listen to them yap for a minute, then they sit there with a blank look on their face waiting for you to push the button again. You push it again, and they talk for another few minutes and this repeats for the whole conversation... it should be noted that your character doesn't talk, and there are no dialog trees, so these weird pauses serve no purpose other than to annoy.

We thought there was a co-op to this game and it'd be sort of like Borderlands, but it turns out the co-op is not the story mode, that's single player only. There is a separate co-op campaign, and it's only two player. The multiplayer for some reason is a racing game (WTF? yes really, a racing game).

The missions are sometimes just absurd, they want me to deliver something or pick up something. Instead of just going about my mission the way I want to, I have to do it their way... their way involves doing a favor for someone in order to get some new clothes, put guns on the car, etc. To upgrade the car, you can't use the money you've collected, you have to collect "race tickets" by playing the stupid racing mini-game. You have to talk to two different people to enter the racing. Once I started the mission, I just zoomed by all the bad guys anyway, I didn't feel like trying my hand at vehicular combat just yet, but the game wanted me to take out 5 of them to complete some other side mission. Whatever. At this point I'm getting frustrated by the game.

I'm climbing a ladder in an enemy controlled area; after fighting my way through dozens of enemies I am cautious. I poke my head up and try to get a quick look around the area before committing to fully climbing up there. Rage interprets this motion as me wanting to jump off the ladder to my death. Great, now I have to wait for this loading screen... and I'm back in the first town... WTF? Oh, you didn't know? Rage only auto-saves once in a blue moon. I lost an hour of progress. I'd say the manual save system was something out of the 90's but the truth is there were better save systems back then. I'm now officially done with this game.

We promise a full-on golden video review with FnJimmy later (he can't stop playing it), but for now, I'd say don't waste your time with this garbage.

This is a game that I am recommending to you.

Rage 2 has been the first new game that I’ve played in a while that I really enjoyed.  I wasn’t expecting much, but the trailers for the game were getting me hype to play.  I did not like the first Rage and I don’t recommend it.  It felt very linear to me and I don’t mix well with hallway-esque gameplay.  Rage 2 however, is very different, it’s a beautifully open world.

How open is it?!  Well for some examples; I beat the game without even going to one region on the map. I then found 2 other towns after I had beaten the game. I love that the game is that open.  To be honest I was WAAAY over powered going into the final battle.  I wasn’t expecting it to be the end, but it was.  It was a little lackluster too for the final boss, not very challenging.  If I were to play through this game again, I would definitely raise the difficulty setting.  I played it on HARD and it was Too Easy….
