    Other massive game sales (Usually on Steam) get USN posts, so I figured this one should too. I recieved an email about it, the sale ends 4/19/12 at 11:59PM PST.

    EDIT: Fixed the email hotlink error.

    I'm just going by what the email flyer says (I'm not a FPS fan), don't shoot the messenger, shoot Gamefly.

    That's still $10.19 too high for my tastes.

    It's worth about that much, that's for sure. No DLC, launch was horrible for PC users due to fail game design not working with many graphics card drivers, causing crashes and graphical performance issues galore.

    Just saw the review on gametrailers, doesn't really catch my eye. If it had achievements then I might have considered it.

    ...and they couldn't have rounded it to $10?

    My opinion - I had such a good time with that game. and it's worth more than $10.

    I had zero problems with the game on my PC but the game itself was very boring. Had some neat ideas like the parts where you can send in moving turrets into a room to clear it out but other than that felt dated. Seems like they spent way too much time on the graphics engine which was pointless seeing it wasn't exactly amazing to look at and seemed to cause many PC gamers problems.

    Most of the talent have gone from there anyway judging by how long this and Doom 3 took to get released and how utterly boring those two were.

    $10.19 is a good price for it though.


    Then why did you post it? Just for the sake of posting "news"?

    Personally Rage was a letdown. Got it for PS3 and considering other games in the same genre/whatever, I'd more likely pay the $15-20 for a complete edition of Borderlands than suggest buying Rage. It just wasn't that interesting for me. On the other hand for example I played Borderlands for hours.. and still do.

    Rage was good to an extent. I think it's glaring issue is the textures and just how lacking they are, not to mention how id has continually tried to make their own game engines in recent years and done horribly with it. The Doom 3/Quake 4 engine was poorly optimized and way too demanding for PC's at the time, and Rage is far too choppy and poor looking without a higher end graphics card and the texture pack. I think another and most glaring issue was how consolized the PC version was, much like Borderlands. The control mapping is sloppy and there is no UI customization to make it better, everything just flatout blows and it feels clunky to play. Not to mention the AI gets stupidly predictable as you progress through the game.
