Rage HD has is now available. I guess this is sort of a precursor to a full game to come later. Basically, it is a rails type shooter. Moving is automatic, you just shoot. There are a variety of weapons and bonuses.


Just played it briefly and liked it a lot more than I thought I would.

As far as I'm concerned, it's a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity. - Hunter S. Thompson, 1958, from cover letter he wrote for a newspaper job.

No, it's not a precursor.  This is how they see their games being played on iOS for the forseable future.

It's on my wishlist. I'll probably buy it over the holiday vacation. I'd snap it up, but I've got enough half-played iPhone games that I'm keeping myself reigned in :)


Also curious what's going to come of the Epic demo, that amazing 3D walk-about in the castle and neighboring grounds. It's gorgeous and has great controls. But four months later, and despite being featured in the iPad commercial as an example of its amazing games...just a tech demo.

Supposedly being released during the holiday season as Infinity Blade.

Dude it's 2 bucks!  It's not like budgeting for the Halo Legendary box =)  Plus you can't just snap it up on a whip, it's nearly a gig....

$2 isn't the problem. It's the $100+ in apps I've got wishlisted, RageHD included, that threaten my free time and a bit of wallet cash :) And I've got unfinished games to play still (Ugh...Secret of Monkey Island...). I think I'll get RageHD closer to Christmas, to play over that vacation time.

Dude, you should see my Steam games list.  There is no way I will play any of them to completion.  But the point is Rage leapfrogs every other graphical experience a mobile device is capable of right now, how can you pass that up for 2 beans?


Edit:  especially when it's a pretty fun game to boot?

Rage has pretty nice graphics, but I hate rail shooters. I'll wait for Infinity Blade.

You are typically first person, but a rail shooter means that you can't freely roam around the game environment. You are stuck moving throughout the levels on a predetermined path...as if you were on a rail.
