The Authority sounds a lot like the Enclave from Fallout to me.

Gosh, I'm just thinking back to August 2007 when this game was first announced/shown. It's been a LONG wait. But now I can't wait :P

@id software Having seen quite a bit of Rage I got to thinking about the little niggles I have with it and with that in mind I like to say the following to the guys at id if they just happen to read this (very long shot). When you make the next Doom game can you: Make the sky boxes actually move/animate Add some more dynamic realtime lighting in the world Make more of the scenery destructive and interactive; stuff breaks and moves when shot etc Show the players hands when they interact with the world; opening doors, pressing switches etc

Fighting for the resistance against an evil tyrannical super power with awesome futuristic weapons. Here we go again :p Personally i would rather be the evil tyrannical super power with the awesome futuristic weapons :) Maybe minus the evil and tyrannical and make it the "Bad Ass super power with the awesome futuristic weapons" :)

The game looks sweet, i don't care if these guys took anything from any other dev because in a matter of fact they are the guys that invented the genre so they have the right to do whatever they want. The game looks sick (definitely in a good way)

Variety looks good, story really doesn't do it for me though. Agree with CovertChris at least M.

The animation & character diversity on this game look really nice. Stoked that the story is important to them.

Sure some may complain the game doesn't look "original"... ... but I compel you to name a game that is COMPLETELY original. You couldn't have the games we have nowadays without the games we had for the past decade... and a decade ago you couldn't have those games without the early 8bit, 16bit, and 32bit eras... Every once in a while you do get things in games that are revolutionary, but overall you never are going to get a game that completely upends systems, architectures, game designs, and technologies of previous games. Sure this game has a lot of terms and concepts from games like bioshock, earlier quake/doom games (obviously), valve games, wasteland-type games from recent years..... Oh, and what about the plethora of art, literature, and film references too? Huh, what about all those you ask???------> I can't wait to play this!!! =) that's what.

u a**holes...ID has the right to take anything from any game considering they created the fps genre. everything copied them if u think of it that way.

You guys fallout and borderlands dont own copy rights on the idea of an apocolyptic wasteland.

Looks cool but I can't shake that nagging feeling that I've seen this storyline before... Oh yeah... It was Fallout 3.

look bloody awesome ! minor point ; when we see the mutants ,they have this incredible a.i but when the " human enemy " comes , they look rather boring in the a.i compartment . i do hope they have the same unpredictability as the mutants in the game .

@mbashour Just so you know, "gnosticism" is a completely different thing than "agnosticism"; the former is hundreds of years old while the latter is quite recent. Also, "anarchy" is not directly related to politics, it's a lot more complex than that and it's a reaction against the idea of authority (and also a way of life).
