Everyone’s wanking on about it. “It’s fucking great,” they say. “Better than shagging your mom,” they laugh, showering their pizza with tobacco spit. But you’re not stupid. You’ve been burnt before. You don’t believe them. Can any videogame possibly be better than going balls-deep inside a friend’s middle-aged relation?

On the basis of the movies after the break, apparently so.

The footage shows an electric cross bow, gambling on some kind of holographic shooting game, using remote-controlled vehicles in corridors, indoor and outdoor on-foot combat, vehicular desert combat, corridor enemies jumping up walls, an AK, a semi-auto shotgun, some kind of throwing blade thing and tons more.

The environments are just awesome. You can see why the E3 judges were blown away.

RAGE, developed by id Software, is a post-apocalyptic shooter based on John Carmack’s mega-texture graphics method, which specifically makes “textures” “mega”. It’s out next year for PC, 360 and PS3.

So. “RAGE: better than fucking your mate’s mum.” Stick that on the box.
