With Rage being id’s first new IP in 14 years, you’d need to bring the goods, right? Well, the firm didn’t just bring them, it brought the house down at the same time.

The game was one of four titles shown by Bethesda during pre-E3 events held by the company in Las Vegas and France for journalists in the past couple of weeks.

Get rounded up of what people have seen from the events here.

For the record, our opinion on it is it’s downright motherfucking awesome. On a stick. Stick! You really can’t afford to miss this one when it releases.

Get other words and stuff below.

    Is there any game you don’t consider to be an ‘insta-buy’?

    I think they also need a counterpoint pessimist editor who thinks everything looks shit. :-D

    It was mentioned in an interview about how characters will react to getting hit in different body parts. I really hope this is true and works well. I would love to see a characters arm get blown off but hey its just an arm they can still fight for a bit and use weapons that don’t require two hands.
    Maybe someone unloads a shotgun into an enemies leg and blows it off. They’re probably going to be crawling towards you but can still fight for a bit.

    I’m fed up with shooting a character in the leg until they die. Limbs should have separate health from a characters overall health.

    Really hope id nail this one; they could do with a hit.
