    I'm in the same boat. Played Rage for the first time like two or three years ago now, was kind of taken aback by how great the characters looked, both in design and animation. Design wise what I'm seeing of this is worrying, because this doesn't look up to snuff with the original. and if you're going to do a sequel to the original you don't fuck with the one aspect they totally nailed. The weird thing about this slight aesthetic shift is Rage was pre-Mad Max Fury Road, after that movie they should be doubling down on that Rage's aesthetic, not doing some five years late hipster take on it.

    Openworld driving stuff, and just the openworld aspect in general I'm guessing Avalanche will do better. Shooting looks like it could maybe be good, but I need to see more. Towns are totally up in the air.

    Well, there was already an official Mad Max game in 2015 that was garbage so this ain't nothing new.

    There is a leak that claim they are going to show a Fallout 4 spin off, could care less, if it isn't written/designed by Avellone, Ziets, Gonzales and Fenstermaker (even if this last one disappointed me a few times) and has the retarded Fallout 4 character progression system, they could call if Borderlands 4 for all I care.

    I enjoyed some of the gunfights in Rage a lot, so it's unfortunate that they seem to be getting rid of the only thing that carried the game for me. The little snippets of gunplay basically looked like the Far Cry sequels to me. Probably not terrible, but not enticing at all now.
    I forget if it was said in here or in the YouTube comments I read, but yeah, Hot Topic: Fury Road.

    God thanks I was concerned Bethesda might end up acquiring this popamole studio.

    Looks surprisingly good, however I still hate the left-hand-magic-superpowers.

    At first I wasn't sure if I liked the color-palette in the reveal trailer, but after seeing this extended gameplay segment I ave to say I really like it now. The gunplay looks awesome - kind of like they took the FPS pieces of nuDoom and stuck it in a Just Cause open world.

    The environmental variety is also welcome -

    I really can't agree that it looks like new Doom much at all, not that I'd praise that resemblance much anyway, if it were the case. It looked like a pretty generic FPS to me, akin to the newer CoD games, now that they have the double jumping and arena fight areas, and such.
    The environments themselves do look really cool, though.

    it looks like nuDoom in terms of the movement system and some of the player abilities
    however, the biggest red flag is the fact that a lot of the presented grunt enemies are hitscan, combined with slow player movement speed and levels with barely any cover in them but enemies everywhere
    from what I saw the player just tanked everything, there would have to be some catch to the combat or health system for this to actually work without being a battle of attrition or popamole
    at least some of the later enemies looked interesting

    Looks bland, like all other Avalanche games.

    No way the game is gonna look half that good as the trailers suggest and there it's not even that good looking.
    Secondly, the gunplay looks fun.
    Thirdly, there's gonna be 6 enemies per arena max. I guarantee it.
    Thus it's gonna be fucking boring and repetetive.

    That's just patently false. RAGE is by no means a high bar, and I'm guessing RAGE 2 will be around a 7, but it looks like an improvement in every category.

    The collector's edition looks awful. Who would even want that mutant head?
