I don't put any weight on reviewers other than actual people instead of paid professionals.

I'd rather here Joe Schmoe's take on RAGE than a reviewers, because, let's be honest. Money exchanges hands. And the only money Joe Schmoe has just went to the game. There's no outside influence on his opinion other than what he's read before hand or gameplay he's seen as compared to actual gameplay.

I picked it up on ps3 / 360 / and PC just to get to see the difference in each... console runs like a charm, looks amazing for a console game as well :)

PC edition, other than some texture popping thats and low-res console textures (we were warned about this to begin with by carmack), is pretty slick, but im forutnate enough not to be having too many issues.

I say once nvidia and ATI get these drivers updated due to old OpenGL componets in them causing alot of fuss on rages graphic/crashes situations.. we should be in pretty good shape for PC

I'm thinking id's prolly hard at work trying to get some of the texture matters resolved, so no sweat there either. And if Carmack delivers on that "textutre enhacement" release he was mentioning for PC, from everything I've played today, I'd really think we'd have the best version.

I'd give it a 9.5 out of 10 on console, 9 out of 10 on PC until some the glitches get fixed. Very impressive, great content, amazing AI and models, and great gameplay. MP is a blast too!

irregardless to wether the game is good or bad it is currently a glitchy buggy mess and that is the issue that needs to be addressed ,


some people are having serious problems and don't care if the game is high scoring because a game that gets 9 and doesnt work is no better than a game that gets 7 and doesn't work

The game is a blast when it works (which it has for me since I installed it). Here is the vid I made to show it working, so that there can be hope for others. The game obviously looks better for me in real time 1080p, without youtube compression or the FRAPs hit, but you can still get the idea.

beavermatic
10-04-2011, 02:08 PM
Well they're working on that.

I'll admit, the texture issues have me a bit jaded. But I have enough respect for bethesda and id than sit here and cry about it all day when they've already stated over and over they are working on these issues.

Luckily, I can get off my ♥♥♥, go over to my 360, and play it like a dream there while I wait on my PC version to get a fix (thus i know, with the reviews and attention this game got, they will not just drop)

You people keep thinking its a crap console port? No... crap console ports are when it ships to 3 different systems aimlessly, in all hopes it works well on at least one, and just mooch money of that sale while flipping the bird to the others guys and not supporting their systems. Just take money and run.

I see absoultely no indication of that occuring here.

What i do see is people actively working to get our issues resolved. A console has one set of internal components they have to develop for.

our PC's? hundreds of thousands... you didn't really expect a 25gb game to come out and work without a single flaw on 10,000+ diffent types of hardware configurations, did you?

I certainly hope not.

Game's worked fine for me since release, and is a blast. What i've mostly seen is people with lower end GPU's expecting to get maximum graphics out of this game. The only problem i've had at all is when I crashed at Mutant Bash TV round 2.

SPUF in a nutshell...
1) New game releases.
2) Many people buy it even though they don't meet required specs.
3) Blame the developers, call game ♥♥♥♥, rant for 2 weeks about how bad game is.
4) Upgrade their computer and play the game.
5) tell everyone that hasn't upgraded yet how awesome the game is, and how they suck
6) Repeat.

Ya do realize that with the 'reviewer' actually getting his hands on the game, playing it a 'decent' amount (we'd like to think 4+ hours, but it's more likely 10+ minutes), then writing up something reasonably readable, sending it to the editor, having the editor read it over and check it for grammar and spelling and length (and probably to see if the content matches the dev's advertising spending on their site), then sending it over to the website guys to actually put it up on the site with pictures and videos attached (without crashing anybody's browser), that in the end, these reviews had to be written a couple weeks ago?

Seems pretty likely that the reviewer never had his hands on an actual copy, and was simply told what to write.

I'm wary of Bethesda published games. They have a strong and long history of putting out buggy releases that only ever get minorly fixed. Oblivion, FO3, FO:NV, Brink to name a few are games that I quite enjoy, but man, the bugs all too often kill the experience for me. And games like Oblivion and FO3 have been out for a long time and still have core engine bugs that will never get fixed. Thankfully many of those bugs have been fixed via mods, but anytime I've reinstalled Oblivion, I miss something and wind up with the same bugs again and again.

Long story short, I'll see what reviews say about bugs in this game (given the engine looks like the same one used for Oblivion, FO3, etc...) as well as the overall gameplay and such and probably pick it up next year in a GOTY edition with all of the DLCs included that are sure to come out.

Actually, yes, every single PC user is experiencing the LOD issues. Some worse than others and mitigated in some cases by low sensitivity/not being a spaz/the user being half blind, but it's there for everyone.

It's even there for the console users but I'm not sure they can turn around fast enough for it to be an issue. It is a part of the engine design.

We're complaining because the game isn't making use of the extra memory PCs have. It's giving us a very distracting experience. We don't mind texture streaming, but it is WAY too pronounced. The lowest LOD should be set much higher than it is.

beavermatic
10-04-2011, 03:14 PM

Ouchie. And Ars hasn't even seen the PC version yet!
Pre-orders and pre-release reviews are a sham. The gaming industry is getting more and more corrupt and incompetent everyday it seems.
Hope the pre-orders got them the money they needed/wanted. What a dissapointing release in all respects.
