You might want to wait until they fix some of the graphic problems.

You can read more about the problems here

Well, despite myself stating that I wouldn't buy another game as soon as it was released last night I went out an purchased Rage. Visually it's better than anything I've seen before. It's too soon to tell how the game will rate overall, but after an hour or so of playing I would put it somewhere between Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. I'm not a big gammer and prefer the open sandbox style of play which is why I used those two games for comparison. I believe Fallout 3 is the king of the hill of this genre and so far Rage falls short because the story line falls short. I remember being sucked into FO3 much sooner and maybe the story will develop as time goes on.

I'll probably check out Rage when I get back to my big iron at "home." I like mindless FPS killing. I'd rather there be something more to it, but I haven't enjoyed a plotline FPS since Half Life (and sequels).

They unlocked the caspian border map for the bf3 beta. I would suggest you give it a try. Completely different game.

First snow in Denver today so of course I had to run out and buy a new game.

Decided to go with Rage and a few hours into it we've decided it's pretty cool. There is a lot of running around and talking to people to get missions and not a whole lot of mindless scrounging. Useful items are highlighted so they are easy to spot.

The graphics are really amazing, the camera pan is super smooth. It's actually difficult to watch someone else play because it is so quick.

While I suppose it's technically an open world game the story line so far keeps you on task and there is no good vs. evil decision making, you're pretty much along for the ride. The dune buggy racing is cool, you have to race to earn credits to upgrade your buggy so you can complete missions.

So far so good, we'll see if it manages to hold our very short gaming attention span.

I found the game far too short. I picked it up on Thursday and finished it this weekend. I found the game play to be very linear, at least compared with Fallout. The graphics are beautiful without a doubt. The story line was weak and iD could have done more to flush it out. There are a few other nits, but my complaints are really what I'd like see changed to tailor the game to my tastes and nothing more. Hopefully iD will release some DLC's to expand the game.

I'm level 17 on the beta, but Caspian was not available, only a PC load test for 64 player games

Steering wheel xbox 360

My good ole microsoft steering wheel bit the dust and I am looking for another.

Mad Catz is crap
Don't know what microsoft was thinking with the new wheel they offer.
Currently looking at the 430 wheel by thrustmaster....looks like the only REAL wheel that is out there for xbox.

I would love the fanatec, but they do not exist.

Any suggestions....I wish Logitech would pull their mouth away from Sony's dick so they would make a good wheel for xbox.

After finishing the game this weekend I'm going to restart and see if there's stuff that I missed. I know that I forgot to visit the sewers which was an add on from my anarchy edition. I just wish the story line was a little richer.
