Rage was one of my biggest disappointments... just really didn't like it at all and thought the combat was terrible. I recognize that I'm in a tiny minority though and that most liked it (the reviews are what convinced me to get it) so I imagine a sequel is big news lol
As far as Bethesda is concerned, it's about the least exciting thing they could announce for me though. Aside from a new elder scrolls which is apparently years off, I was hoping for a new IP.
I really hope they publish another Fallout title like they did with New Vegas as well, as Vegas might be my favorite Fallout thus far. Reusing the engine didn't bother me then, and I imagine it could hold some of us over just fine now.
