Rage?! Seriously? It's no wonder that developers/publishers try to release games when there is no competition, because apparently, people will buy anything that's new no matter how shitty it is.

Thank you Brandon Sheffield for trying to put the journalist back into game journalism. People are so used to meatball questions that they forgot that the game journalist is supposed to serve the gamer, not the developer or the publisher.

News Comments > id On RAGE "Cluster!@#$" and Lead Platforms
19. Re: id On RAGE Oct 7, 2011, 22:32 Overon
 
RAGE sucks and no amount of driver issues is going to fix the fundamental GAME DESIGN PROBLEMS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE GRAPHICS.

If RAGE is any indication, John Carmack and id can just go over exclusively to the console market and PC gamers will not be worse off. Let's just face reality: After years of development id's newest game is so full of terrible design decisions that graphics issues are just the icing on the shit cake.

But I have to give props to Carmack for being so honest about id's failure so soon after the game is released, of course he can only talk about the graphical failures not the game design failures, they are not his fault.

I reached 94 honor level after laying 12 hours or so. I didn't earn any unlocks, so you yeah, it was all fucked up.

Yeah you can make it look pretty but ridiculously stupid game design decisions do not make a the game better than average.

News Comments > RAGE Interview

My hope in gaming journalism has been renewed. I'm glad that someone like Ben Kuchera at Ars Technica and Brian Sheffiled at Gamasutra are allowed to realistically evaluate and be be critical of a $60 high budget game from a major publisher and developer.

I think the conclusion is that id does game engines well, and they need to license this engine to other developers. The other developers will make actual story driven games with the technology that don't troll gamers as described in the Ars Technica interview.

Wow, now that is how you conduct an interview. You ask real meaningful questions. Typically the questions that are asked are designed to draw out standard talking points that promote the game.

131. Re: RAGE Reviews - PC Users Raging - ATI RAGE Drivers Oct 4, 2011, 19:10 Overon
 
I understand why some people are upset about the graphic quality they are getting.

The reviews virtually universally say that the ending sucks, it's a corridor shooter full of fetch quests, and the buggy combat feel tacked on. Also I read some reviews that said They also say the graphics are very nice. It seems to me from the reviews that id still cannot make a story driven shooter that is on par with current standards. And I don't see, based on the reviews, why this would be worth 60 bucks. And not having configuration controls is console amateur bullshit.

Previous id games you could have an autoexec.cfg file with all those tweaks in it and it would be autoexecuted every game launch. Anyone try that?

News Comments > John Carmack at Mesquite Midnight RAGE Release
106. Re: John Carmack at Mesquite Midnight RAGE Release Oct 3, 2011, 15:02 Overon
 
I like the PC. I prefer the PC. I don't care if John Carmack "sells out" or whatever. If a game he is involved with is good on the PC, then he wins and I win too. That's all I care about. Where are the reviews? I hope RAGE is good on the PC.

RAGE is a big test for id. They haven't released a game in a long time and this will be their first story driven game. Or at least I hope it's a story driven game.

Imagine the how many people in the cracking community are going to be trying to crack diablo 3 and allow people to pirate it and play it without a persistent battlenet connection.

If that guy only applied the same "shame" to Battlefield 3, it would be a better game.

This doesn't seem worth 60 dollars and only fools preorder.

It's Ubisoft? Ubisoft is the new EA. Ubisoft is current worse than EA in my eyes.

Console players look out! It's a huge red flag when a game has such a rocky development cycle, followed a by the elimination of the PC version which may indicate that the publisher has no confidence in the product is trying to minimize its losses.

I don't know whether to commend them for amazing support or condemn them for releasing their games too early.
These days it pays to be a few months behind the curve of new games if you want the most painless bug free experience possible. I for one rarely buy anything when it first comes out. So many developers released games early for revenue reasons, and then patch them later.

Fileplanet exclusive?

Overon, once the manual is finished it will be on steam of course as for the work in progress you can download it with free membership on fileplanet.
Looks like fileplanet has changed, I don't have to jump through multiple hoops anymore to download something. Good job fileplanet.
