Still confused why people were surprised rage sucked. Doom 3 and even Quake 3 in a way showed that id was living in the past and probably should just make engines to license out. Well they probably can still make a good competitive online fps so I'm confused why their last two games were single player which they are weak at. Even more confusing is they went almost an entire console generation without a engine to license out, letting epic get all the money.

Don't get me started in Binding. I've been fighting against it since the idea was introduced in EQ and became mainstream with WoW.

If you have a better idea let's hear it. No binding is ok in games where items didn't matter that much(asheron's call). Or games where there's little to no crafting(everquest). It's funny, everquest 2 and wow got released pretty close together, and eq2 had very little gear that bound to you. They had to change it because people would buy crafted gear, and when they got better, put their old armor on the ah. Of course this led to crafted stuff going for less then it cost to make. Pretty big deal in a game that put a lot of focus on crafting.

News Comments > RAGE Interview
46. Re: RAGE Interview Oct 5, 2011, 09:08 Kobalt
 
Not sure why people were expecting the next big thing with this honestly. id really has not made a innovative game since quake 1. Even back in the day the single player of quake 2 was bad. The only thing that they changed besides graphics from quake 1 was the railgun.

I remember the beta for quake 3(id were early pioneers of just calling demos beta) was seen as good for the time when it first came out. However even then I questioned if it was worth the money with no single player and only deathmatch(carmack all but said ctf would be a post release patch). Then the unreal tournament demo came out, and I kind of have looked at id critically ever since.

Comparing UT to Q3 and I got the feeling id just didn't give a shit about making a fun, new experience and just wanted to release a glorified tech demo for their new engine. But at least I respected Q3 for being a good competitive game. When Doom 3 was announced I couldn't believe id would spend all their time doing something they are terrible at, singleplayer. I remember being called a troll a lot on these forums for implying doom 3 would either suck or nothing special. And now we have id releasing another singleplayer focused shooter.

Rage is actually a lot better then I thought it would be..but that's not saying much. It's ok but like doom 3 if you are looking for anything new look elsewhere, you played this game many many times before.

Boggles the mind id doesn't make a new competitive multiplayer shooter. Really has not been a new one in a long time(not counting the halo and mw tourneys that exist because they are popular, not because they are hardcore friendly). I mean jfc been what, 10 years since quake 3, and how many still go to quakecon? Like pissing money away. If street fighter 4, league of legends and starcraft 2 can be big hits don't see why there can't be a good hardcore fps.

They were proposing to keep DOTA2 private and release a more refined product with more content but decided against that, which I think is a sensible move. It's easier to keep players hooked that keep them waiting, especially with Diablo III right around the corner.

Problem with that is,dota 2 is just dota 1 with better graphics.They said they wanted people to move from dota 1, how is that going to happen when they don't even have all the heroes? I think this will hurt them on the esports side.

Ive never played DOTA before I admit, except at its very humble beginnigs in Warcraft3.

Will I like this game?

Hard to say, there really isn't a game like it. I will say however, if you don't have a lot of patience for losing a lot, stay away. It has one of the largest learning curves I have ever seen, and is extremely team based. One person can very easily ruin the game for your team, a big deal with games lasting 40+ minutes.

I'm sorry but if some indie developers complaining is proof that pc gaming will be topdog, we have 2 completely definitions of "top". If someone like ea says they are done with consoles you will have a point though.

Not surprising, portal 2 got zero buzz for consoles(was a little confused why gabe at the e3 conference was considered a big deal, also no one I knew knew who he was). l4d though obviously is a zombie shooter.

I like how all these people are saying the combat doesn't "look like starwars" and how they liked kotor. The combat is exactly the fucking same cept no pausing, kotor pretty much played like a mmo, like most pc rpgs. Any excuse to be negative I guess.

And not a single fuck was given on that day.

I was actually expecting square to force gamestop to take the game off the shelves, doubt they would miss much. Probably sell mostly at walmart. Well, guess they would have less used copies perhaps that square wouldn't even make any money off of.

Really hope gamestop goes under, one of the most shady companies out there.

The main concern I have is the sheer number of dumbfuck raiders on their forums screaming loudly that raiding should be the sole endgame of any MMO.

I keep seeing people say stuff like this but what is the endgame of a mmo like this supposed to be? Pvp? el oh fucking el.

Except that Happy Days went on for 7 more season's after that episode.

Except that jumping the shark has nothing to do with how long a show is on.

Is the game fun yet?

I planned on giving it a second shot with the expansion, but it's becoming increasingly clear they only plan to nickle and dime with little civilization dlcs.
