RAGE Weekend Roundup

Last weekend’s Eurogamer expo saw daily stage presentations of id’s RAGE, and the folks there were pretty fired up for it. As Eurogamer wrote:

Every day at this year’s Eurogamer Expo, Tim Willits takes to the stage in our massive auditorium to show and talk about RAGE, the latest first-person shooter to issue forth from the legendary id Software. To understand how exciting we find this, it is worth noting that without id’s games Eurogamer literally would not exist – several of the founding staff only do this because they grew up on Doom and Quake.

That paragraph precedes a long interview with Willits that can be digested here. A number of sites also talked to Willits, including Games.On.Net, VG247, AtomicGamer, GameRant, BrutalGamer, Critical Gamer and GameShard. And if you’re looking for a write-up of the presentation, head to VG247 for a live blog recap.

Finally, in general id news, Next-Gen wrote an excellent bio on John Carmack’s Legacy. Amongst other interesting anecdotes, it mentions that Carmack’s son has ambitious plans for robotic domination. Somehow we are not surprised.

Update: Check out a preview, as well as a new video interview with Tim at GamerCast.

  1. Nice about John Carmack’s son. Maybe he’ll be scripting real life behaviour into the robots for the ultimate gaming experiance in amusement parks and personal home hologram systems.

    Thanks for the interesting revealing read.
