RAGE DLC Next Week

The Bethesda Blog has word that The Scorchers DLC will arrive next week, bringing new content to RAGE, id Software's post-apocalyptic first-person shooter. Here's word on the content, which includes a new gameplay mode and the ability to play past the original game's ending:

Return to the Wasteland in The Scorchers, an all-new RAGE add-on from id Software – arriving on 360, PC, and PS3 next week for $4.99 (or 400 Microsoft Points).

In this brand-new adventure spanning six all-new areas, you will fight alongside new allies to defend the Hager Settlment from a maniacal bandit clan known as The Scorchers. Along the way, you’ll participate in a new season of Mutant Bash TV, encounter new mini-games, and wield the overpowering and brutal Nailgun.

In addition to the new content, this DLC includes ‘Ultra-Nightmare’, a new high difficulty mode, as well as an ‘Extended Play’ option that allows you to play past the original ending of the game – giving you the opportunity to finish collecting items and achievements.

Doom 3 I felt was when id Software started going downhill, with derivative and uninspired gameplay with graphics that were technically impressive but generally unappealing. RAGE was simply a disaster - a game that was obviously designed for consoles and that suffered one of the worst PC releases I've come across.

Doom 3 technically wasn't a bad game, the real problem was both Doom 1 and Doom 2 had cartoony graphics and Doom 3 didn't feel in any-way related to the classics. It felt like it was it's own seperate universe un-connected with the first two games.

It really should have been called something else. I wasn't so much disappointed in Doom 3 because it was a bad game, but because the game itself was not made in the same style and spirit as the first two games.

I'd love to see someone make a real sequel to doom 2 using the same kind of cartoony based art aesthetic and just fill the game to the brim with awesome. Something like serious sam 1 would be what I'd be shooting for, for a true sequel to Doom 2.

Doom 3 and the upcoming dooms are basically stand-alone games in their own separate universes unrelated to the first two.
