Rage 2...actually looks fun

Post by Daehawk » Mon Jun 11, 2018 10:19 am

Hella fun too. I played the first one at least 3 times. This one looks like they're combining Rage with mad Max for open world goodness. Cant wait.

Found out its Danny Brown doing the song. Sounds a lot like MC Chris.

Looks more like a reboot than a sequel to me.

Which is a good thing. Rage was dull.

Time and tide melt the snowman.

There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.

Looks like they've tossed some Bulletstorm into it. Hope you guys enjoy it. I would have if my life was still our life.

Yeah, the more I see it, the less I feel like I want to play it. I loved the first one, but this one looks way too hyper.

Say what you will about Bethesda, whoever they put in charge of marketing for this game is pretty much on point.

For anyone that is on the fence about the game and would like to see some gameplay, there are a number of early access streamers playing it on Twitch.

I finished off the story tonight. I've logged about 47 hours in the game, although that includes a lot of running around and shooting up the countryside while I tracked down as many side missions and locations as I could find. About that only thing I disliked about the game is that there is a race that you have to win in at the start of one of the three story lines, and it was more than a challenge for my feeble manual dexterity. I did eventually manage it, but there were a couple of rage quits along the way.

After the credits roll (accompanied by a series of comic panels that retell the story), you get an epilogue cinematic and then can continue to play in the open world. I like the combat enough that I'll probably fire it up from time to time for some quick mayhem.
