If you have the bandwidth for a whopper of a file, 35 GB, you can download the tools id used to create RAGE and its expansion, The Scorchers. What kind of mods do you hope to see?

This is totally awesome. I read the PDF they released as part of it, 35 gigs of rad.

So tempted to get this and try my hand at building a crazy level. Hmmmm.

Sweet, I've never even played RAGE and I think it would be fun to play around with their tools

All I ever want for game mods is co op, online gameplay. Co op makes shooters great. Otherwise, I think they're mostly merely good.

The co-op in Rage is really awesome. Play it often with my friends now. Legends of the Wasteland++. Got almost no attention but its pretty dope fly.

I didn't even know Rage had co-op. I have it for Xbox, but barely put much time into it. I'd go back for co-op, though!

Yep, split-screen co-op. You have to beat the first level to go on to the next and it has varying difficulty levels. Console and PC versions are good.

Awesome indeed! Just finished a new playthrough on Ultra Nightmare for the challenge and, of course, the Scorchers missions.
Who didn't like Rage in the first place, will probably not change his mind because of this DLC, but I really, really recommend it to everyone who enjoyed the base game. Fights are intense on Ultra Nightmare, and the new levels come once again with a tight atmosphere. From the lovely welcome by Sarah at the beginning, over a second episode of Mutant Bash TV to the heart of the Scorchers' base where they hide their mysterious construction, this was just great.
Just a bid sad when it was already over, then. However, that doesn't the mean there's a lack of additional content. Also comes with the nailgun as a new weapon (everybody loves nailguns) and two more minigames (made a couple thousand dollars in 15 minutes by playing poker). And there's even a little surprise in Wellspring for you when you finish the last mission. A very good and fair priced piece of DLC.
Hopefully, this tool kit will bring us more like this. I wouldn't expect any more official DLCs, but maybe there are some diligent fans who deliver more action in the Wasteland. :P Might even give it a shot myself I can free up 35GB and find some time.

Are you guys mostly playing it on PC then?

da_gaymer wrote on 02/10/2013 at 03:16am

Although Rage also works well on consoles, PC all the way. :P

I pre-ordered Rage on the PS3 when I was still primarily playing games on that. Its a GREAT game but a few downsides to playing it on the PS3 saw me migrate to the PC version to beat it. First off saves. Loading and saving take way too long and the game doesn't autosave for you when you enter/exit a room all the time. It only auto-saves when you go to some plot area. No quick save option on console means too much waiting.

The game is a precision shooter to its really hard to be good on the console, or at least I couldn't snipe worth a damn. With a mouse I headshot all the time. Borderlands and Borderlands 2 were better on console in this respect, I imagine they do some automagic aim or something.

The game also looks WAY more pretty on the PC. Its one of the best looking games on a console, but you are missing out if you can't play it on the PC its absolutely beautiful.

In the end, its a great console port with a few flaws that had nothing to do with the overal game perse. It was just a better experience on the PC imo. That said, the console version DOES have legends of the wasteland split-screen which is fun as hell if you have friends over. So buying it on console wasn't a total wash and its not too expensive on the used shelf if you had friends over and wanted some shooter mayhem.

It's just couch co op or is it online as well? Split screen....

jdodson   Admin wrote on 02/11/2013 at 05:35pm

Console version of Legends of the Wasteland is split-screen couch co-op. PC version is online or LAN.

Actually the console version does support online Legends of the Wasteland too now that I think about it.
