Rage was.. OK. It wanted to be this weird combo of Doom + Fallout, and from memory Carmack had a hardon for the Mega-Texturing tech brought over and improved upon from Quake Wars.

It'll be interesting to see what Rage 2 is, but I think they're just trying to force a franchise to happen.

The shooting was good, or so everyone keeps telling me, but from what I remember the level design was mostly just linear corridors, there weren't actually that many functionally different/interesting weapons or enemies, its RPG and crafting mechanics were surface level, and the open world didn't need to exist.

Second time's the charm?

Im going to be optimistic and say theyve learned their lessons, and actually give this one a beginning middle and end, and its going to play like DOOM, and well all be happy.

I thought RAGE was going to be some sort of grittier, cool cousin of Borderlands with a more serious tone and over-the top violence.

It was a solid "meh," wonder if the sequel will be what the first wasn't.

Avalanche completely hosed Just Cause 3 with its No Fun Allowed bullshit and dogshit framerate issues on consoles so I have Zero confidence in them once again half-assing two games at once. Christ just make one great game instead of 2 mediocre ones

The only way to be successful at hyping this game is to be completely forthcoming on how mediocre the first was and why you're better now.

I thought Rage was the game I vaguely remember a GiantBomb quick look where they couldn't fly a helicopter, but I looked it up and apparently that was a game called Ravaged? So I now have no recollection of either Rage nor Ravaged.

All these BR games are gonna be announced just to be stillborn in 2020 when everyone's sunk cost in Fortnite/PUBG and won't change games. This happened with MOBAs just a couple years ago.

I'm curious how they're going to differentiate themselves (other than brand name) because I think PUBG and Fortnite are pretty distinct on their own and cater to different audiences. I'm not really sure whats left here that fortnite or pubg can't content-patch in.

I disagree, people are desperate for new BR games - new maps, less janky bullshit, variations on a theme. MOBAs are totally different in terms of investment, most people aren't willing to devote the dozens of hours you need to kind of sort of learn one.

among their active players yeah. I don't know anyone playing PUBG that wouldn't love a viable alternative. Bluehole have proven they have no idea how to make games. Fortite is fun and very well made but scratches a totally different itch.

PUBG remains a janky mess (aside from the mobile port, Tencent's doing a good job) and it's impossible to be good at fortnite without getting good at building, which not everyone wants in a shooter. I think there's still a fair amount of unmet desire but maybe I'm projecting
