    Borrowed a copy from work. Looking forward to the graphics...
  • 1343
    The graphics is awesome. Such texture and model detail. The shooting is good, the driving is horrible.
  • 1344
    Why do I constantly run out of ammo? Isn't this supposed to be a shooter? It's turning into a survival horror game without the horror.

  • 1345
    Holy shit! Dead City is awesome!
  • 1346
    Got the Open Minded achievement. - Haha... that's the best headshot achievement title I've heard yet.
  • 1347
    Yeah, fighting the giants in the Dead City Streets is really cool.
  • 1348
    I got a rocket launcher, launched all the rockets into a giant without hurting it, and now it's stuck in a loop, throwing the same rock at me forever. I'm shooting it in its heart or whatever with my assault rifle, also without hurting it. Reloading save game. Sucks.
  • 1349
    Oh, you can pick up extra rockets. That's better.
  • 1351
    I realize what this game is; Borderlands and Fallout 3 for people with ADHD. It is a fast and furious (no pun intended) shooter in a post-apocalyptic world.
  • 1353
    Mutant Smash ... I mean Bash TV? I can't wait to shoot numerous heads off a huge mutant on tank treads.
  • 1354
    I really like the weapons in Rage, especially the shotgun and the assault rifle. They sound and feel hard and the enemies react well to their impact.
  • 1355
    Completed 15/28 story missions. Definitely not hating this.
  • 2011-11-20
  • 1356
    Really liking the enemy animation and movement, really not liking the checkpointing.
  • 1357
    WHAT THE FU..? I destroy the Ghost Clan, completing the 'Hijacked Well' mission, only to get squished by a friggin' elevator? And the autosave is of course placed before the fight? Raaarrrgh...
  • 1359
    So many similarities to Borderlands ... the design of The Authority reminds me so much of The Crimson Lance.
  • 2011-11-22
  • 1363
    Completed 21/28 story missions.
  • 1364
    The driving is decent with the Buggy and the Cuprino. Similar to Red Faction, but more earth-like gravity (for obvious reasons).
  • 1365
    That's the ugliest microscope I have ever seen.
  • 1366
    Completed 22/28 story missions. 'Please insert RAGE disc 2?' This seems way overdue.
  • 1367
    'This game requires an update, but the update couldn't be found. For help, visit www.xbox.com/support.' Drops me back to dashboard. Well, this is just great.
  • 1368
    OK, got it running again. Wauw, the Eastern Wasteland looks so amazing... The incredible detail and the smooth frame rate is second to no other Xbox 360 game I have seen.
  • 2011-11-23
  • 1369
    Completed 23/28 story missions.
  • 2011-11-24

    I'm going to finish this game tonight, if it kills me! I'm not home during the weekend, and I want to start playing Skyrim next week. I have an absolutely lethal looking 473 mL Red Bull to help me get through this. Here goes nothing...
  • 1371
    I'm not going to miss the savegame system for this game... Manual saves all the time *sucks*.
  • 2011-11-25
  • 1372
    Completed 24/28 story missions. My Cuprino is really getting worked in the Eastern Wasteland. They tell me to get a new car, but I'm just driving hella fast instead...
  • 1373
    Completed 25/28 story missions. That Monarch was *real* easy to win, by the way...
  • 1374
    Completed 26/28 story missions. Pulse cannon!
  • 1375
    completed the game on Normal difficulty. Total playtime: 10:19:57 - and that was me rushing through the game without doing anything but the story missions. That was an extremely underwhelming end sequence. No final boss, no anything, just elevators, pressing buttons, shooting 'special' mutants. And after that, credits, drop to main menu. LAME
  • 1376
    And now ... precious sleep.
  • 1377
    I just realized: I never inserted disc 3. What the F...?
