These games are making rAge awesome

Rage

rAge seems to go in waves – some years it is absolutely excellent and other years I can get through the whole expo in a couple hours. This year, there are a ton of awesome games playable on the various stands, and you won’t want to miss them.

The list is quite extensive and some of the titles are quite surprising to me. Here are all the games (in alphabetical order to avoid favouritism) confirmed as playable at rAge:

  • Alien: Isolation
  • Amiibos
  • Assassin’s Creed: Rogue
  • Assassin’s Creed Unity
  • Bloodborne
  • Borderlands: The Presequel
  • Captain Toad
  • Destiny
  • Disney Infinity 2.0
  • Dying Light
  • Evolve
  • Far Cry 4
  • FIFA 15
  • Forza Horizon 2
  • Hyrule Warriors
  • Lego Batman 3
  • Little Big Platnet 3
  • Mario Kart 8
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • NBA 2K15
  • PES 2015
  • Pokemon Omega and Alpha
  • SingStar: Ultimate Party!
  • Skylanders: Trap Team
  • Splatoon
  • Super Smash Bros
  • Sunset Overdrive
  • The Crew
  • The Evil Within
  • The Order: 1886
  • Yoshi’s Wooly World

Beyond this, the Xbox stand will also have some extra Xbox Live games and even stuff for the Kinect. As a new console that has just launched, it’s also cool to hear that they will have 43 consoles at their stand for all of us to get our grubby hands on. I will definitely be carrying hand sanitiser with me.

Which of these make the show worthwhile for you? I’m certainly keen to take Geoff on at Mortal Kombat X, and I’d love to see if The Order: 1886 has improved gameplay since I saw it at E3 – I was so keen for that game until it disappointed me earlier this year. I will also be kicking anyone who tries to stop me from playing some Sunset Overdrive.

I’d highly recommend to anyone interested that you jump in the queue for Evolve. Not everyone will be able to play during rAge, but it’s totally worth the wait. I will graciously be avoiding playing – I’ve had tons of hands-on time and I know I need to share the toys with everyone else. But really, you should play it because it’s awesome.

Which game will you be rushing and pushing small children out the way in order to play? Are the Assassin’s Creed games calling you, or are you just going to assess if PES 2015 really is better than FIFA 15? Don’t forget to bring your 3DS – if you have Pokémon X or Y you can also pick up a Shiny Gengar to go with all your streetpasses. Oh, and I demand a lazygamer Splatoon faceoff – I will own you all!

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

  • eXpZA

    Says a lot that every game on that list hasn’t been released yet (i.e. not finished) and Destiny is there as well 😉

  • Lardus-Resident Perve

    Mortal Kombat, NBA, Evolve and Destiny. Only going to buy MK as I am done with the online play games and still busy with NBA2K14. Seriously looking forward to some MK! * Want to have a look at Dying Light as well *

    • WitWolfy

      So looking forward at Bloodborne this side.

  • WitWolfy

    Nice, was starting to think RAGE would be barren this year.

  • bluegoon

    I’m going for three things, drugs in the parking lot, staring at booth babe boobs, and Yoshi’s Wooly World.

    • WitWolfy

      At least your honest…

    • Hammersteyn

      Sounds about right

  • Matewis Jubilai

    Do people still play strategy games at rage these days? The one time I went a couple of us tried to play some Dawn of War, but mostly people were playing fps’s.

  • Captain JJ Underleyened
    • Matewis Jubilai

      This is what we look like to food.

        I don’t know man, I’m a bit more gentle with my eyeliner

  • Ryanza

    I don’t see The Witcher 3 on that list. The Witcher 3 trumps anything on that list. Is that why it’s called Rage.

    • Her Highness the Hipster

      As far as I know, there will be a demo/presentation awesome enough to make your eyes bleed, but no hands-on time.

      • Ryanza

        Is CD Projekt RED coming to rage?

        • WitWolfy

          Dude thats like asking if Hideo Kojima is coming to Rage. Simple answer, NO!

          • Ryanza

            ahem.

        • Actually, yes. There is a dude from CDPR coming.

          • Ryanza

            Pics, videos and interviews or it didn’t happen.

            CD Projekt RED is all over. They even in Brazil now for BSG.

  • Hammersteyn

    Wish I lived near there, would be nice to meet everyone. Except @Admiral_Chief:disqus After handing me my bottle of Jagger he couldn’t wait to drive off.

    • Admiral Chief 0
