Rage is one beautiful game. Its characters and environments are amazingly designed. Characters feel alive and respond dynamically. While it does have that now famous graphical glitch (fixed by updates for the most part) I’ve found absolutely zero bugs in the PC version so far. Not to say that there are none, but I haven’t noticed a single one.
Rage also runs extremely well on modest systems. I easily got about 55FPS from an AMD Phenom II X4 955, Nvidia 8800GT OC and 4GB of RAM. There are never any real FPS drops no matter what you’re doing.
I will be writing a review in the future. For now, check out this gallery.
Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Inc. passed away on October 5th. He was born on February 24 1955. The Apple website displayed this image.
When Netflix announced it’s Qwikster DVD service (splitting DVD services off from Netflix) I said this would be an extremely bad move. Apparently so many people agreed that Netflix changed it’s mind.
If you’re playing RAGE and noticing some weird graphical glitches then you will want to update the game and your video card drivers. RAGE shipped with some odd bugs. A recent patch also adds new graphics settings. Speaking of RAGE. It’s awesome. No really. I expect the wingstick to go down in gaming history.

EA held a 1.6 million dollar Battlefield 3 tournament and excluded PC gamers. Yes, they actually excluded the main and original fan base of the series. Have we come to expect more from EA? Not really.
