Ripten: You Haven’t Seen S**** Until You’ve Played RAGE (Hands On)

RipTen - I’m going to be completely honest here. When Bethesda and id Software announced RAGE, it didn’t spark my interest very much. Hell, even after I saw multiple gameplay videos, I still wasn’t convinced. After spending over two hours playing the game, I now feel I should smack myself for not paying more attention to this beautiful piece of work. It’s simply incredible.

Man your lucky. Ive been watching this game for years, Im so ready to try it. A sucker for post apocalyptic movies and games I am. Also a fan of ID, october please hurry.

Looks good, visually.
But I noticed the animations are kinda PS2-ish. The good kind at least. Like Jak and Daxter or Ratchet & Clank LOL.

Also, there's WAY too much motion blur, even when walking.
Maybe it was just this video.

I still don't care about post First-person post-apocalyptic games. But this game actually looks more fun compared to Fallout. Might make me change my mind.
I'll try to find out more about story, characters, etc.

The slightly quirky animations look intentional

SilentNegotiator2633d ago

They definitely spent all of their animation and AI budget on something. Probably on previews and future marketing. "Greatest game EVRZ" incoming.

I know what I say here is going to be marked as trolling and the disagrees are going to pile up. But aww well. First, the game is gorgeous, until u see the npcs. They look so generic. The voice acting sounds boring and dull. Next, the game again looks great visually, but ill be happy to start the its too orange complaint just like Killzone had the its too gray complaint. My other complaint is that its soooooooooooooo empty? Where are all the bad guys? You know like in Killzone and Resistance where there's like 7 to 10 guys minimum trying to get you while using smart AI and maintaining superb graphics, physics, and all the other background stuff happening. I know its not the final product and ill reserve my true opinion when it comes out, but as of now I'm still not impressed.

They're not necessarily bad.

JsonHenry2633d ago

The movement looks good to me. Like in the video where the guy is running then jumps on the side of the wall and runs around. Not sure what you meant by the Jak and Daxter reference.

sweet. good preview. hopefully id will be back on the map with RAGE. <3 id

ElementX2634d ago

Back on the map? When were they off of it?

solar2634d ago

huh? DOOM3 was 2004 and that was pretty medicore. Quake Live was 2009. for 5 years id Software has been non existent.

BitbyDeath2633d ago

@solar, Doom3? That is being overly generous.
Quake 3 Arena (1999) was their last good game IMO

pr0digyZA2634d ago (Edited 2633d ago )

Their legacy has kept them on the map for me. I am a huge fan of their games .Doom came in 2004 and yet majority remember it, lets not forget that rage has been in development for 4 years. ID takes their time to make a quality product that when releases is remembered for many years after that.

Why does it say S****, sh*t is 4 letters not 5

xPhearR3dx2634d ago (Edited 2634d ago )

Because more ********** are better, duh :P

Na jk, I just accidently added one more when I submitted the story,

rabidpancakeburglar2634d ago (Edited 2634d ago )

Could be S***e, although that all would depend on location.

SilentNegotiator2633d ago (Edited 2633d ago )

"Don't make me kick your asterisk asterisk asterisk!"

But as has been said, probably s*** Ripten an Irish site? lol
