I compare this rAge to the only other one I have ever attended, rAge 2008.
I would have to say that I did enjoy this year's rAge, but as already stated above, I expected more stalls, more freebies and more games.
I was so hoping to see Fable III, maybe another day. There was a lot of Reach being played, which might be expected, but the game has already been launched, might have been useful to plug other games? (Like Fable III???)
The only stall that gave freebies worth returning for again and again was the HP Networking stall (The Slushies were awesome, and free mini-Bar Ones)
I did get a Play & Charge kit for R200 @ Cats Digital (a bargain for me) and I wanted to buy MW2 for a friend on the PS3 for R350 (also at Cats), but it had already been sold when I got back.
As for Kinect, I enjoyed it, before rAge I had no inclination to get it and didn't even want consider myself playing. When I saw it at rAge, I decided to try it and I must admit that it has changed my perspective completaly. I will be buying it, but only to play when I have friends over as a party trick (...and for my girlfriend, who loves every aspect of Kinect).
I will return another year, and take in everything that is rAge.
Thank you NAG!!!
