Rage Catch-All

I agree. It looks like it's coming along nicely. Can't wait.

Seven minutes of uncut gameplay with no narration. It is the same mission they keep showing though.

PC Gameplay.... on a gamepad....

*sigh*

Well, that just looks delightful

Looks nuts! I like it! Great trailer!

Here's hoping this turns out great!

Here is a right-up over at Polygon about Rage 2. Has some positives and some negatives.

This part sounds like fun:

Rage 2 promises a weapon wheel’s worth of guns that range from empowering to just silly. There are the requisite meaty pistols, a rail gun (but no sniper rifles; the developers want you to get up close with your victims), a hulking rocket launcher, and a hefty shotgun. There’s also the made-for-YouTube Grav-dart Launcher. That weapon fires bullets into a body or an object, and those bullets launch whatever they’re lodged into toward a target determined by the player. Using the Grav-dart Launcher, you can send enemies hurtling into the sky or throw an exploding barrel at a cluster of bad guys.

When I watched Willits play, he got more creative: He fired Grav-darts into a mutant, then erected a force field and placed the darts’ destination on the opposite side of that force field. His enemy became a bloody paste as their body attempted to travel through the impenetrable barrier.

No sniper rifles?!?!?! Well I'm out.

Kidding, likely gonna pre-order this.

Or you could just play Borderlands 2 and get an identical experience

My hope is that this is Borderlands without the loot garbage.

Oh gosh yes please.

Power usage seems much more a core part of the game than Borderlands. Maybe it was just the classes I played but in BL my powers were usually saved for the "oh sh1t" moments where I needed to get out of trouble.

Rage 2 now coming to Steam. They backed down on the Bethesda launcher only.

Welp, they just got me to pre-order:

And if you're wondering, it's been confirmed as real.

A few days ago I saw a video that showed and talked about what Borderlands looked like before it got the cell shaded graphical redo. And the more I see of Rage 2 the more it looks like an evolution of that. Borderlands, but realistic and prettier.

I hate everything about that. Thank god it is optional.

That looks like it would be amusing for... about the length of that video.

I'm impressed that no one has yet assumed that that's an April Fool's joke.

I'd rather have this guy doing the commentary!

It's not, it's completely legit.
