Rage about id – The Cursed Checkpoint #106

Rage is a touchy subject around Horrible Night. Justin, Ethan, and Coop discuss why they are so defensive about the game and the future of id Software.

The Cursed Checkpoint is a topical video game podcast focused on discussions and interviews about a single video game, genre, news headline, or industry story. It features a rotating cast of up to 3 members of the Horrible Night writing staff and/or video game industry professionals.


Episode Background

Getting your hopes up for a game is one thing, but hearing the majority opinion turn against a game you really enjoy is another. It has been 4 months since Rage was released and Justin, Ethan, and Coop still find themselves bristling at ignorant attacks on the game. While they admit the game isn’t perfect, it was time for the group to get together to make sure none of them were crazy and collect their thoughts on the future of the franchise and id Software.

This episode is for anyone who has been on the fence about playing Rage and for fans of shooters and id Software.

  1. Dave

    I LOVED Rage. When I first played it I was thinking it would be an epic experience like Fallout3. It is not, which isn’t a bad thing it is a shooter. That said my only complaint is the length of the game. It was to short for me, but a damn awesome game.

  2. Andrew Cooper

    I completely agree. The quicker you realize that it isn’t Fallout 3, the quicker you can enjoy it.
