RipTen: "Yet, is that really a problem? Does RAGE need the same type of multiplayer that everyone else has?"
Car combat would be a nice change of a pace anyway. I'm not bothered.
I'm not bothered either. If you want to play TDM and CTF, then there are other games on the market that will provide that for you.
im actually sorta happy about this with Resistance 3 and Battlefield 3 right around the corner splitting my online time with these two is already going to be a hassle
Even if ur not bothered.. Wouldnt of been a bad thing if it had CTF or TDM... you cant be happy about a feature not being in there as it wudnt do it any harm
While the game doesn't necessarily NEED those game modes, some people will be pissed about their absence. I'm almost sold on buying this game. Not sure yet.
Every game doesn't need a MP! Devs and Publishers need to realize trying to staple on a MP just takes away from the quality of the SP. Instead of a MP for rage i would use that Dev time for some AAA DLC and some mods to the game. Some games can have a MP while others just do not need them!
I believe most games should have a multiplayer. None of todays FPS has a single player worthy of replaying. RAGE definately needs one and I am looking forward to it.
Yes it does! every game needs some sort of MP.. otherwise where is the replay value? once youve done the story your not gonna replay it as youll know what happens and when.. Only exception to this rule is games like Heavy Rain and Mass Effect as you can change the game as you play it.. Multiple Endings do not equal replay value btw
I actually hate objective type games in multiplayer usually. I want co-op objective type games and competitive killing. Mixed together to get things like CTF and KotH etc and I usually hate them, so im not upset about them not having that. I dont think games need multiplayer at all, but its good to hear that the multiplayer that they are adding is something that fits in their game as opposed to doing what everyone else is.
I think it would be cool to have some other vehicles like a one-man chopper like in mad max beyond the thunder dome had or a hover craft or dirt bike or avt!
20 hour single player, 10 co op maps, a whole car racing circuit, I think it can do without a tacked on CTF and TDM that people will just say is unbalanced anyway.
I didnt know it had co-op HELL YEA! Thats the icing on the cake. I prefer co-op to multi anyways, if i want multi il play like one game i stick with (kz3 right now). This is for the singleplayer here. Hope the car combat turns out as good as the old vigilante 8 and twisted metal games. Love some crazy vehicular homicide.
How do you know it wouldve been tacked on? cudve been awesome lol.. Just like the Co Op and Car racing jazz cud also justve been "tacked on"
Sounds awesome the more i hear about it!
It'll be in DLC. Trust me.
dont get why this game doesnt have competitive MP there going to lose alot sales. Its not like its an RPG...
It does have competitive MP. Competitive MP doesn't just = TDM and CTF.
No kidding sherlock. What I meant was who in the heck is going to play an FPS's MP competitievly when the only mode is racing around in a car? shooting people? sounds like twisted metal to me. Does that sound like competitive FPS material to you?
ahaha i understand the joke apparently i'm one of 3 ppl and 6 ppl did't get it ha. yes i'm soo excited for this game. a Fall out game with action and not that boring to watch freeze the game and aim ur equipment/weapons at the specific part of an enemy (turn-based rpg nonsense). i did like the premise of a game like fall out 3 for its exploration but when i watched a buddy of mine play for about a half hour i couldn't stand it anymore. worst idea in gaming is that turn-based crap.
There is absolutely no reason you have to use the turn based-ish feature(VATS) of fallout 3/NV. You can play it just as a normal fps if you choose. It can come in handy in a jam but a decent shooter at the default difficulty won't be needing it very often. And the slow down camera shot for kills can be turned off in the options. (Atleast it can in New Vegas...I don't remember if fallout 3 did or not)
Well, considering this is id, fathers of deathmatch and creators of one of the most important multiplayer game series ever (Quake), this comes as somewhat of a disappointment.
Considering quake was the last good game they made im def renting this.
Strange, is there free 4 all then? AKA DM my favorite mode
GOOD. Every game does NOT need multiplayer in order to be great.
i didn't even knew this game have multiplayer and i think it doesn't need multiplayer
Good no loss here, glad devs are starting realizing that can make amazing games without the need of an unnecessary unbalanced multiplayer
Wish I could click agree multiple times.
Don't worry i click agree for you
Nothing new. Have known about the lack of TDM or CTF for a long time now.
No MP must mean 50+ hours and replayability to get sales.I thought RAGE was 30 hours?
I won't lose sleep over this.
Rage looks amazing, and it didnt even need the co-op but we got it. id you guys are great and I cannot wait to play this game.
yea they would have needed to scratch 10 hours off the campaign to do a MP. No thanks. KZ3 had a 6 hour uninspiring campaign so they can add a MP. That doesnt cut it for me, sorry.
Wrong. The game is still 20+ hours with Co-op AND MP, it's just the MP doesn't have TDM and stuff, just car combat. If you would have read the article you wouldn't have been misinformed ^_^
it would be awesome if rage had features & community support like epic games unreal tournament 3 which i still own on PS3 it's awesome how you can port mods,mutators ect.. to PS3 & i wish more games did it on consoles.
I thought it was a RPG.
I'm not going to buy Rage for the multiplayer anyway. No need to apologize BRUH!
Some of what they describe sounds pretty nice. But as a whole I really don't understand the hype around this game. Maybe it's only the footage I've seen, which has been 720, or 1080 quality, but this game doesn't look graphically ground breaking. The combat seems no different than any other shooter. What am I missing that makes this game so special other than it being made by ID? Don't take this the wrong way I'm interested in the game, I'm just not going to run out and pre-order it for its developers namesake.
I'm so over games claiming to be the next graphics king. I'd rather play a game that's fun. Graphics don't mean anything when the game just isn't fun. Crysis 2 sucks... it looks good... somewhat... but it's just a really sucky game. I'd rather play a game like Infamous because it's fun even though the graphics aren't that special.
and thats why im not buying Rage until its really cheap.
Save the multiplayer for Doom 4 or Quake 5.
I don't play Multiplayer games anymore. With single player, you don't have to listen to whiners or deal with campers, or deal with people who cheat.
