FFD: What are you excited for at rAge?

1 min read

Rage FFD

It has begun, my dear friends. I am not even at my desk while you read this. Instead, I’m probably not even at the Dome. I am probably driving through traffic on my way to 5FM studios to talk about rAge. Yes, that’s right, you should tune in from 11 to hear me talk about all the awesome stuff on show and why it’s so exciting.

Every year, I have mixed feelings about rAge. Is it worth it? Will I see stuff I care about? And every year I find a reason to be excited. Whether it’s hands on time with games that are only releasing in weeks or months, or an opportunity to try out VR, or the ability to buy awesome stuff from local creators, there’s always something that I enjoy.

Plus, I mainly just go for the chance to meet with all the local people I never get to see otherwise. This year we aren’t doing a community get together, mainly because the weather forecast says we’re getting another ridiculous amount of wind and I don’t want a frozen community meet up yet again. But that doesn’t mean we won’t get to see each other. Let us all know when you’re planning to be there, and let’s all make a plan to find each other.

In case you forgot, here is the list of what’s confirmed to be on show at rAge, although I’ve heard there’s actually a whole lot more. What are you excited for? Me? I’m going to be going face on with Batman VR, as well as jamming some Steep, Mafia 3, Watch Dogs 2 and South Park. What more could I want?

      Since it’s Friday Debate we’re debating about what we’re excited for?

      YOU’RE ALL WRONG! I’m excited for things that you should also be!

            Well according to some people around here, well done steak is stale cardboard.

            So excuse us, Mr La-Di-Da!

            Nah, crispy steak is much, much worse. I’d rather eat the cardboard.

      Interesting you say a watered down gaming flea market. How many gaming flea markets do we have in SA? Enough that rAge seems like a dull Sunday?

        I used to go to rage to see all the cool tech/games. Now 70% of rage is sales events for places like BT games and Evetech. Maybe the odd game on show here and there with 2 computers and hour+ queue and the rest are running events.

        Rage used to be the E3 of ZA now its just a weekend long bargain bin.

          To be fair, even the bargain bin is nice.

          I get what you’re saying, but there’s still a vibe and still games to play and enjoy. For me, anyway.

            I ride on the M3 every day, to and from work. I get a full view of the forest along the entire mountain from Bishopscourt to Muizenburg. And coming home a lovely view on the Indian Ocean.

            But now that I have moved I am happy to report that there are trees taller than me around xD

            I can’t afford a car. I literally ride. Motorcycle. Because I can afford the petrol on that.

          • HairyEwok

            October 7, 2016 at 11:54

            Motorcycle is still cool though, plus the aircon is the best (that nature wind)

          • Pariah ???

            October 7, 2016 at 11:56

            Rain isn’t cool. Hot weather in all the gear isn’t cool. I would kill for an actual aircon. Or you know, getting home dry on a rainy day.

          • miaau

            October 7, 2016 at 14:30

            Aircon is critical for me. My current car has 3 way aircon, drivers, passengers and rear seats all have different settings. I love it, I really do.
