Video on Rage: 'The best thing id has ever done'


5:20 PM on 06.30.2011



Do you want to get excited about id's Rage? This video will do the trick. There's a lot of technobabble on why the game will be the best and a bit of back patting, but we'll let that slide. The folks at id did invent the genre, you know. More importantly, what I got from this video is that the developing team has a serious desire to make a great game that goes beyond the typical shooter. This desire is what is going to make Rage a good game.

This video, Rage: History of id Software, moves through the company's history and shows that they're using that knowledge, tech and creativity to make their newest title. You'll see and hear that their id Tech 5.0 engine is going to blow our faces off with their "megatexture technology." They say that Rage is running at twice the framerate of the best looking console shooters out there now, and that's still running at 60 frames per second. You'll hear that they call Rage the "best thing that id has ever done."

Excited now?

Snoop Dogg talks RAGE's wasteland weaponry

Who better to give you insight into the weapons of id Software's post-apocalyptic shooter RAGE than Snoop Dogg? When this man tells you that something is capable of "taking off a motherf*cker's head," you trust him because he knows what he's talking about. I love the random celebrity appearances that are a part of game marketing. The less sense they make, the better.more

Destiny has so much lore, it's sad that almost none of it is in the game

In-game, Destiny's story is probably the worst part of the experience. Constant Dinklebot "defense" missions and short exposes during load screens are hardly what I'd call a narrative, but that's what Bungie ended up giving u...more
