The Crysis 2 mod Mechwarrior Living Legends is playable now instead of some vaporware Mechwarrior 5 news.

People once again show that whatever new game comes out that has a little bit of name recognition or marketing, it will sell number 1 on steam. It's no wonder that publishers don't like to release their big games at the same time for fear of competition.

RAGE is not worth 60 bucks people! I am offended!

Of course, big name publishers release their big games at the same time pretty often, so your statement is kind of flawed there.

That said, I agree that it's not worth 60 bucks. Pick it up when it's on sale for 10.

I should have been more specific and say that developers/publishers don't like to release similar games at the same time for fear of competition especially if one is a "bigger" title than the other.

Why wouldn't the developers or publishers see money from the cdkey sites? How are these cd keys obtained? Someone had to buy them? They didn't just make them up otherwise they wouldn't work.

And are graphics the only way to innovate.
Graphics are the only thing the id is capable of innovating. And that is mostly on the consoles because they don't look so hot on PC's. Have you played RAGE? Take away the graphics and what do you have? A game that was obviously rushed for release, just look at the ending. It's the easiest way to tell if a game was released too early, the ending is abrupt.

ID has given PC gamers a big middle finger with the graphical problems. But IF they fix the graphics problems with patches, how will that fix the shitty gameplay, the ending, etc?

Those have all pretty much been done, except AI which lacks for obvious technological reasons. But then again if you were playing a game wherein the hundreds of enemies were as powerful/intelligent as the single player character, how the fuck would anyone beat the game?
Well I would think the answer is obvious: Not have hundreds of enemies.

I have some semi original ideas for first person shooters: Enemies guns hurt you just as much as your guns hurt them. AI that moves around as well as you do. A cover system that does not make you completely invulnerable while behind it. Some environmental damage in non static environments.

Does any game have any original or even semi original ideas anymore?

Also I'm disturbed about the callousness of murdering non combatants.

This game looks to be Syndicate in name only.

So by getting an adrenaline boost, your guns does more damage? Make perfect sense. The AI is brain dead as usual and their guns don't do any damage. In Deus EX Human Revolution, enemy guns actually hurt.

Curving bullets? Why don't they just have the "press here to win" button? Grenade launchers in doors and explosions of those flying drones without any debris. The game looks to have every single first person shooter stereotype.

You got to give props to id/bethesda for the most comprehensive changelog descriptions I have ever seen...but RAGE still sucks as a game but it does look pretty.

If by "comprehensive" you mean, "pass-the-buck" with every opportunity, then sure.
I'm not judging the content, I'm simply stating that I have not read such detailed changelog before even if it does "pass-the-buck" as you say and I can see why you say that.

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.

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

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.
