    I hope the soundtrack isn't consisting of trash/heavy metal, but maybe that's hoping too much...

    If I wanted my ears filled with the equivalent noise of jackhammers and buzz saws I'd go to a metal workshop and rock out, heh. ;)

    I hope Carmack does not let us PC lovers down. I have forgotten what Rage and all the technology behind it was all about...but it is something similar overall to what Crytek is doing with their latest engine, no? Meaning develop for all 3 platforms at the same time?

    Having just spent a week for a training class out in Phoenix, AZ, in Nov, once you drive north up around Sedona there's a helluva lot of red. Too much red, in fact, very unpleasing to the eye. But think of the amazing palette id's artists would have. . .not just one color but two!!

    I think they are good on the reddish, rust color two John, so they should be ok there.

    At least they have blue skies too, so we have red, brown and blue. Quite an expansion from orange or gray skies :)

    And grall in the game you will be in a machine shop fairly often it sounds like :p

    With Bethsoft's history as a publisher, the game is screwed.

    I wonder if EA wasnt willing to take a chance on the title given recent statements of them focusing almost solely on solid IPs sequels in the near future. It seems odd to me that Bethesda would end up with it, perhaps they have a strong relationship with ID from past experiences.

    Regardless I doubt it will matter much in the end. I must say that I generally appreciate Bethesda titles though.

    Probably more to do with the fact that Bethesda now owns ID Software. :) So it's only natural they would try to get the publishing rights to any yet to be completely ID projects.

    They did a great job with Fallout 3. With Wet and Rogue Warrior, they weren't very good (well, the latter was terrible).

    Ouch the self shadowing in some of those shots is brutally pixellated.

    Hmm indoor sections seems to look a lot worse than PREY as in tech and visuals.

    Not new.

    I'm worried for this game. The EA site was shuttered last month, so aftertheimpact.com now points to rage-game.com, which is just idsoftware.com, which then links right back to aftertheimpact.com. Not an encouraging sign.

    The closest thing to a deadline Rage has is Carmack hoping it will be out before QuakeCon 2010 (ref. QC08 keynote). That gives them about six months to finish the game on all platforms and get marketing back on track to salvage the now-dormant buzz.

    I hope this game turns out to be a better looking Borderlands. That would be freakin sweet!

    Anyone know when this game will be "done"? (I won't say "released" given id's previous mantra)
