id: "RAGE Will Feel Like a True PC Game"

There's a RAGE Q&A on NowGamer talking with Tim Willits, Creative Director at id Software, about RAGE, their upcoming first-person shooting and driving game. The Q&A is pretty general, asking about the game and its story. They also discuss its multi-platform development, and Tim feels that PC gamers will feel at home: "For the game designers the biggest focus for each system is the controller interface. We’ve taken very deliberate steps to make each system feel right in regards to the interface and the controller. We’ve been making PC games for over 15 years, so PC fans should rest assured that Rage will feel like a true PC game, not a PC port of a console game."

I think there's a chance that Rage *WILL* be a god-damned console game.

Why? Because the physics will be all fucked up with the cars for stupid console noobs that can't fucking HANDLE the fact that their shitty driving will cause them to spin out or roll over.

Prove me wrong and show me some god-damned simulation physics (that actually compete with other games rather than dick around) as at least an OPTION so that I can ENJOY DRIVING THE FUCKING CAR.

Rather than WASTE MY FUCKING TIME LIKE WITH SOME PIECE OF SHIT RANDOM CONSOLE "RACING GAME" WHERE THE PHYSICS ARE SO USELESS THAT YOU JUST HOLD DOWN THE GAS PEDAL AND THE POWERSLIDES FAIL TO GIVE YOU ANY PLYMETRIC BOOSTS/APPROPRIATE NEGATIVE EFFECTS (THAT'S RIGHT; THE POWERSLIDES IN THESE GAMES USUALLY DON'T HAVE THE FUNCTIONALITY OF A SIMULATION'S AND TEND TO SLOW YOU DOWN MORE THAN ANYTHING).


*HOWEVER!* It *WILL* feel like a PC game! I can't remember what game I was playing, but some console game was ported over to PC and the developers ACTUALLY CONVERTED ENOUGH SHIT (and had the apparent technical competence to include not only a fully functional but a fully PROFESSIONAL options menu) to make it look like it was a PC GAME!

That's right! It's apparently REALLY EASY! (Though you wouldn't want to detract from the people that pulled things off well. I was very impressed that they were able to take watered down noobishness and give us the flexibility and professionalism we need.)

I will hold my breath, however optimistically, that iD will be able to continue to innovate in the area of violence effects. Doom3 actually implemented SOF2's unique realtime blood-layer effect in addition to the locational decals.

Let's see if it's fun to shoot people in their game.

You all should play Ninja Gaiden (part 1 at least) on the Xbox! That game had REAL fucking complexity to the gameplay mechanics and allowed a skilled player to flex his gaming muscles and be fluid and truly ONE WITH THE GOD DAMNED GAME!!!!!!!

I loved that game! I can't get over it. The combat system was so advanced (you gotta read about the technical details)!!!!!

I LOVE IT!!!
