I think I'm looking forward to this more than BF3.

If only they had made this before Borderlands and Fallout 3, I'm a litle tired of post-apocalyptic wastelands :( I'm sure it will be great though.

6 years in the making really put some of Rage out of date. I am a lot more excited about this than I was before all you journos got your 3 hour hands on however.

I seem to recall Mr Carmack having stated several times that Rage is indeed "id Software's most technologically striking or ambitious game to date". Are you sure you didn't play it on one of them toy boxes?

I'm having high hopes for this. Looks great, if it does indeed scale properly to our expensive, elitist PCs. A bit hard to tell from all the crappy gameplay 720p vids running on the 360 toy.

I'm glad it plays better than it looks.

I'll wait until it comes out, though, and a review.

I wasn't convinced of this before I saw the preview, but 3-4 hours of play and still barely touched the plot? Like it!

id software are better than everyone else.

Carmack said the code is at ten times the bitrate and the firm plans to release it as patch on PC to “test the extra benefit.” He also admits that textures up close don’t look all that great in RAGE, so the team is considering a potential downloadable release of a “super quality pack” on PC.

Not even interested in this as it is yet another console port which is why I am only going to buy this year 3 games, and those are Battlefield 3 because it look's amazing and even the Alpha test was better than any other game out there, then I will be buying Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 simply because I want a game that I can run and gun on, and the 3rd and final game will be Need For Speed The Run, because I like those games.

I will try most games but this considering what ID have done even stating themselves that they should of spent more time on the pc version, just makes my mind up for me as it's just going to look worse than a game from 2 or 3 years ago.

Ummmm, no. id software are the last of the dinosaurs. Take 10 years to create a game that's really not that special. Remember Doom 3? Scary as hell and boring to play through. It simply couldn't compete against Half Life 2 released earlier with it's vast outdoor locations. id tried to make Doom 3 more appealing by copying HL2's gravity gun but the game was still boring.

I have little expectations for Rage. We already have a number of post apocalyptic shooters and Rage is officially stated as having 3rd person vehicle driving which is enough to turn me away from the game right away (detest 3rd person). I hope the vehicle racing has option for first person but I'm not hopeful when the official blurb states "3rd person vehicle racing".

I have little hope for this game. Oh, and remember Quakewars enemy territory? It was supposed to be the game that beat Battlefield 2142 and when it came it was absolutely awful. id software made a big deal for several years about their graphics engine and when it finally emerged in the form of quackwars the graphics looked pretty ****.

John Carmack is better off developing his rocket engines because that is where his true talent lies (that's his real passion).

Looking good.
I'll judge it when it comes out and I can get my hands on it.

And cut the dissing of ID and Carmack.
Without them our gaming world would be a very different place.

Me too, but this looks kick ass!

And the three games you mention are PC exclusives?

IDwank. I miss the great days of Doom. Doom was a great game with vast hordes of monsters coming at you, various outdoor settings and it was very scary. I think everything since then has been downhill for ID.

The word "Think" Means his opinion.

This looks pretty sweet.....Dead Island, Skyrim and Battlefield 3, plus a ton of upgrades I have to do on the machine...

This year is going to eat my wallet..

I upgraded my i7 860 system about 3 or 4 months ago. Ditched the Giga 260 Super OC and bought 2 x MSI 560Ti OC which are now liquid cooled. Not really a need to overclock them but doing so does seem to increase smoothness. I have managed 982mhz so far but on a game with DX11 graphics that can take as much as 620 watts. My PSU is rated at 625w but being enermax it barely gets warm even pushing it at it's limit. Still I may upgrade to an 850w perhaps from Corsair or Enermax.

Also need some 3d active glasses for my recent 3d monitor purchase.

I know you're not a fan of id software, but be fair: they didn't make Quakewars: ET (Splash Damage did), and it was using an old engine (id tech 4, aka the Doom 3 engine from circa 2004). Not denying it was a bit **** though!

The funny thing is, this is the first time that Carmack and co. have developed an engine designed to help artists and designers, not just be the most advanced algorithms possible. All the developments, from a unified 360/PS3/PC code so no porting is neccesary, to a unique texturing system that enabled artists to produce mile-wide textures without killing the memory, are all rather... non-id software if you ask me.

So the engine is less impressive, but if it makes the game better, I'm all for that.

Well it will be great if the game turns out to be a winner. I always like to be proved wrong since I tend to be pessimistic.

I still have fond memories of the first Doom though and bought the doom complete on steam at shitmas.

Doom 3 is impressively scary, it's just I got bored playing it.

Carmack is extremely clever. The Quake 3 engine is a testament to that even as near as 2 or 3 years ago.
The thing which I respect most about him is that where as he appreciates the need for all three platforms to be supported, he also appreciates the fact that quite obviously the PC has evolved way beyond that now.

I'm fairly confident that we will see updates and high res textures for this game without any complaining. Looking forward to playing it
