Too bad...I liked Rage much more than any Doom game.

Get off the internet.

Before you're eaten alive.

KentBlake1845d ago

Haha...well, it was just an opinion. I'm not saying Doom sucks, or anything like it.

hesido1845d ago

@Kent: We disagree with you, you DON'T like rage more than any Doom game. We know you better than you know yourself, hence the disagrees.

NukaCola1845d ago

They own idtech5, please utilize it into Fallout 4

aliengmr1845d ago


Please explain what idtech5 would do for Fallout.

As someone who played that glorified tech demo we call Rage, all I saw was a 25 gig install, static environment and crap textures.

Winter47th1845d ago

Bethesda made a huge mistake by acquiring id.

There's certainly a lot more interesting things going on in Rage than in any Doom game. That doesn't make it a success by any stretch.

Rage is id's only attempt at modern game development in their entire long history. It failed commercially and pretty much critically as well. I think it's indicative that id was never meant to be a large scale developer.

The people who hold id up as a Paragon of PC development are selectively ignoring the fact that everything id ever did that remains noteworthy can be run better today on an iPhone 4 than any PC that existed at the time of those games' launch.

id's core technological competency was doing a lot (A LOT!) with very little (VERY LITTLE!). Carmack made 486 DOS hardware sing.

Give the id of today a modern GPU and they can do anything... but they have no idea where to begin.

I wouldn't say that.. I feel like they lead the charge in graphics every generation. I mean they were the first ones who brought stencil shadows to real-time professional gaming... first ones to actually use normal mapping in a production. They seem to be the first ones at doing a lot back in the day too.. 3d... doom... quake.. etc...

With rage they pioneered the whole mega texturing thing, but they just lack on other things that crytek and unreal seems to be doing these days. These days ID isn't being enough of a pioneer.

I think they, like crytek, just don't know how to make fun gameplay. Its all a carbon copy first person shooter for these tech people for some reason.

Makes sense for ID since they practically invented first person shooters... but doom3 was a let down for me.. doom 2 was more fun then doom3. The way an imp would spew blood out his mouth and fly backwards when u made your double barrel shotgun shoot in his face... and reload 2 shells by hand.. so cool

They kind of suck at story telling too to be honest.

SAE1845d ago

For me it looked good. But people started to say it's sucks so i forgot about it. I hope ps+ get it so i can try it myself..

pangitkqb1845d ago (Edited 1845d ago )


Averaging Rage's metacritic score across all three platforms (PC, PS3, 360) the title has an 80/100. Since when is 80% out of 100 a "failure" critically?

I think your comment overall has some decent arguments, but the fact that you make such a wrong blanket statement out of the box and fail to back it up makes me question your judgment as a whole.

Simply put, if your opening argument was better - as in, based on reality - your whole point would have been stronger. Because it was so bad, I have to assume bias. (That's the way this kind of stuff works. Either everything you say is credible, or everything you say is doubted. I wish that wasn't the case, but it is. I've been on the ugly side of that situation many times.)

Cheers and happy gaming.

@koehler and pangit

Every once in a while somebody here on N4G says something really well-grounded. Pangit, today that person is you. Koehler, you were almost awesome, but as pangit said you blew it at the start.

U probably liked it like me because u love rpg elements and bigger worlds. The only problem with rage is that it felt like it shoulda been more open and the end felt rushed. But the concept was brilliant...and it was gorgeous. As a console player I prefer textures that take a second to load over shitty textures. It came with an hd textures pack to install. I wonder why others don't do this. Anyway, in order for doom to be successful it needs to be revolutionary. Sinve resident evil and dead space r action titles its the perfect time to make a scary, brutal horror game.

himdeel1846d ago

I wish Skyrim had used the Rage Engine. Rage was a game with some slick presentation and very fluid gameplay but it got boring fast after the 30th fetch quest.

aliengmr1845d ago

Rage wasn't open world like Skyrim. If it had been used the install probably would have been 1 TB.

Vynzent1844d ago

The Rage version of Tech5 can't do openworld. It's simply too much texture data flowing in at real time.

I mean if Skyrim were a wasteland then they could do it, but that's not the case. There is too much rendered in Skyrim to attempt streaming its texturing in realtime.

showtimefolks1846d ago

Rage should have been a much much better game, it came after Borderlands so everyone expected some of thoise elements but in the end:

we got an open world which wasn't open
no in game map
story sucked
online modes for online car combat when ID introduced the death match
long development to make the game look good yet all the tech issues at launch

Rage had a lot of Hype, after every E3 it got bunch of awards but the game itself wasn't very good

MariaHelFutura1845d ago

Screw both of those games. I want some next-gen Fallout 4 info.

OpieWinston1845d ago

Bethesda is PUBLISHING Doom 4.
Bethesda is also PUBLISHING Prey 2(When it gets a release date)
Bethesda DEVELOPS Fallout and Elder Scrolls.

Jeez people these days...

MariaHelFutura1845d ago (Edited 1845d ago )

I'm talking about info. Plus, Obsidian developed Fallout: New Vegas. So...

OpieWinston1845d ago

Fallout: New Vegas was awful. Bethesda had to fix New Vegas with patches.

They also Published it.

ISNeko1845d ago

*cautiously raises hand* I wanted Rage 2 as well. Doom scares me.....

mrmancs1846d ago

hopefully doom 4 will be a return to its dark satanic origins, Secret walls etc..chainsaw , shotgun a must.

Kurylo3d1846d ago

doom3 was a total let down.. they need to make the monsters look like they did in doom2 lol Just better.

Vynzent1844d ago

Lol dark satanic origins? Not the Dooms I remember... you know, the ones with bright open outdoors and cartoony monsters. Now THAT was badass.

MuhammadJA1845d ago

I want both! I hope the reconsider Rage 2 in the future.

TheEnigma3131846d ago

Rage was pretty good. Well I bought it for 7 bucks, so I got my monies worth.

Rswings991846d ago (Edited 1845d ago )

But why is the monster pissing?
