Skyscraping The Barrel: Rage's "The Dawn"


Ha, the latest Rage diary has Id's Tim Willits uttering one of those phrases that (fortunately) tend to only come from the lips of game designers: "...then we had to decide how to destroy the planet." In this case, of course, it was a convenient asteroid impact in the 2030s which sets the scene for Rage's ruined world one-hundred years later. Yeah, I think you know the sort of thing, but anyway this latest trailer-diary, entitled "The Dawn", has loads of new footage and some of it is quite spectacular - that ruined/infected skyscraper is a thing of beauty.

(I also love the juxtaposition of Matt Hooper saying the words "deep and meaningful story" as the player shoots a red exploding barrel on screen.)
