id on RAGE PC Controls

PC Gamer has word from id's Tim Willits on RAGE controls, stressing the game's PC support allows the player to carry more weapons than, say, Duke Nukem:
Rage doesn’t follow the trend for letting you only carry two weapons at once. Instead, you can carry all your weapons at all times, and they’re mapped to the traditional number keys. “We were kind of back and forth on whether we keep to four buttons that you map to your favourites,” explained Willits. “But on the PC you’ve got a key for every weapon. And we follow the Half-Life control paradigm, where you can press the button twice to select the weapon.”

These low player limits in MP is just sad. We had several times this many in the mid 1990's over a freaking 56K (or less) modem!

I really miss the days of QuakeWorld/Quake2 multiplayer. Sure dial up sucked but it still worked good enough and the matches were just crazy.

I can't agree unfortunately. As someone who was a huge fan of playing Doom, Doom 2 and Duke3D over BBS's back in the early 90's. I prefered the small intimate 4-8 player matches. 64 Players is fine for something as large scale as Battlefield 3, or 32 for something medium scale like Bad Company 2. But I've personally always felt 16 Player for 8 v 8 Team games was ideal, and anything more than 8 for straight deathmatch is just too much chaos and no longer about skill.
