The post-apocalyptic town of Wellspring gets its name from the intricate underground systems pumping water up to the surface, so when a group of bandits threatens to poison it, heads are going to roll, and possibly explode.

It's been a long time since I've been truly excited about a first-person shooter. Mildly interested or somewhat amused, sure, but there's something about id's Rage that has me eagerly anticipating the game's September 13 release date. I'm not sure if it's the scenery, the setting itself, or the many different ways to take out your enemies as demonstrated in this video. The game just speaks to me.

I mean, did you catch the part where the guy throws a knife, the player dodges, and then decapitates the enemy with his own knife? That's what I want to do. It's those sorts of gaming moments I live for.

Anyone else feeling excited?
