Un-Reality Not-TV: Bullet Run Goes Live

By Nathan Grayson on August 1st, 2012.

I honestly cannot figure out who's trying to fight whom in this screenshot.

Well, I suppose I have to give SOE and Acony some credit for their approach to gritty, ripped-from-the-headlines F2P shooter Bullet Run: at least they ripped it from a different part of the headlines. Specifically, top billing’s been given to Bullet Run’s “unique storyline” about a reality TV show on which insane people try to kill each other in stylish fashions to claim their 15 minutes of fame. DON’T WORRY THOUGH: there’s a magical “Synth” device that brings them back to life, so it’s all perfectly harmless. Or, you know, kind of really disturbing. But integrating a focus on style into the shooting is, at least, kind of interesting.

Let The Gameshow Commence: Bullet Run

By Adam Smith on May 22nd, 2012.

this is a very silly image

The free to play FPS formerly known as Hedone is now the free to play FPS known as Bullet Run, or at least that seems to be the case. Either that or Acony have made two identical games with separate names and convinced Sony to put their logo at the beginning of one of them. It’s a shooty shooty gameshow which means I’m contractually obliged to mention SMASH TV and you can sign up for the beta now if that’s the sort of thing you think you might enjoy. This trailer may help make up your mind one way or the other.

Shoot The Rich: Hedone Preview

By Brendan Caldwell on August 1st, 2011.


Caldwell has been abroad in London town to bring us the first look at MMOFPS Hedone. Here’s what he made of those initial impressions.

I really wanted this to be stellar, so that I could run “Hedone Good” as part of the headline. “Hedone Maybe OK I Don’t Know” just isn’t as eye-grabbing. Hedone is an upcoming free-to-play first-person shooter from German developer Acony. It sprung up from the ashes of a cancelled game called Parabellum which apparently ran into “issues”, as games often do. It’s got shooting in, as you can see from the pictures below. It’s also online, which means Social stuff. Let me explain.
