Weekend Update: See the iPhone release of RAGE in action

This weekend we’ve got exciting new preview coverage for the upcoming iPhone release of RAGE. IGN’s Levi Buchanan has the scoop, and above you can check out their exclusive video footage on the game.

And as previewed in last week’s episode of The Jace Hall Show, Jace recently had to a chance to check out RAGE on iPhone with id Software’s Matt Hooper and Jason Kim. The fun starts about 3o seconds into the show. Also on the show, you can see more of Jace going ballistic on Veronica (played by Felicia Day) in New Vegas.

More news after the break…

There’s a couple of features on New Vegas that are worth checking out. Members of IGN’s staff recently took time to discuss their favorite memories from playing the game. From Black Mountain to checking out the sites and sounds of the New Vegas strip, read their stories here. And at CVG, check out their tips to surviving the game in their Wasteland Survival Guide feature.

Meanwhile at FileFront, Jim Sterling wrote a column last week discussing New Vegas’ handling of homosexual characters. Here’s a snippet…

“Arcade Gannon’s sexuality isn’t a big deal, and that’s how videogames should play it. Not just videogames, in fact, but all media would do well to not make such a big deal out of homosexuality. Rarely is there a gay character whose identity doesn’t completely revolve around their sexuality.”

Speaking of New Vegas, here’s a couple of the most recent reviews to make their way online:

Wrapping up this weekend update, check out Eurogamer’s feature, Games That Define Developers, which features contributions from Hunted’s Maxx Kaufman and RAGE’s Tim Willits. And elsewhere, PlayStation site The Sixth Axis looks ahead to 2011 with a piece on Hunted: The Demon’s Forge.

  1. mmm, that iPhone demo looks damn tasty! can’t wait to see it live.

    regarding the Sterling column, i agree: the Fallout series, for all its grit and extremes, still handles some of the nuances of humanity quite subtly. most people are just trying to push forward through the cusp from survival to society, despite their loves, hatreds, traumas, or baggage. the only words about homosexuality being taboo are from Veronica’s recounting of being separated from her girlfriend, the parents of whom disapproved because of the Brotherhood’s need for procreation.

    (so, if you like Mr. Fisto, are you… robosexual?)

    race seems like a “lost conflict”, as well. seems like humanity, even the worst of the worst, has better things to do than worry about skin color – unless it’s green or rotting, i suppose. (though, i’m still not sure how i feel about the only non-white companions being a Mexican handyman ghoul and an insane black grandma supermutant.)
