Well, as of this writing, Gophermods has finally reached 650 likes. That means we will be giving away a game this time around. But first, let me announce the winner of the 600 point giveaway. Congratulations to tedrabear! I will be awarding those points soon.
Now, as for the promised game giveaway? The game the winner will be receiving is id Software’s ‘RAGE’. Oly reviewed this a while back (in November of 2011), giving it a 93/100. The high points he listed were that it had amazing graphics, excellent voice work, tons of action, and a fun co-op experience.
Remember, this is part of the Gophermods giveaway, but we’re keeping this one separate from the points giveaways, so it will run for about a week, with all entries open.

Bethesda has announced that a RAGE demo will be available on December 6th on the PSN. The press release stated:
The Ghost Clan, a cult of murderous fanatics, has infiltrated the waterworks beneath the town of Wellspring with plans to poison the water supply. You are the only one with the weapons, talent and courage to stop them. While in Wellspring, you can also meet the townsfolk, try your hand in games of skill and chance, peruse the wares of the local vendors or hit the Speedway for some racing.
So it looks like there will be one pretty good mission, as well as a chance at walking around the town and even a race to demo. This should give you a good feel for this great game. If you’d like to read more about the game, check out my review of Rage here.
Also, if you don’t want to wait, I’d suggest picking up RAGE on Black Friday, because it will be for a sale price of $29.99 at GameStop and other select retailers. Trust me, once you play the demo, you’ll regret not picking it up while it was on sale.
When Bethesda and id Software, revealed the game Rage, everyone, including myself, was thinking or hoping, that this would be the next Borderlands or Fallout. Well, it does share some similarities to both, however it is unlike them as well.
