Um, That Was Quick: SOE’s Bullet Run Done In March

By Nathan Grayson on February 5th, 2013.

I guess those bullets are running? I'm still not entirely sure how it works, to be honest.

Remember Bullet Run? It was a free-to-play reality TV shooter thing from SOE best known (around these parts) for being announced and going live. The latter occurred a scant few months ago, last August. But now the style-focused punk-buster’s adding another milestone to its extremely brief timeline: complete shutdown. Which, I guess, is kind of fitting in its own way? I mean, Bullet Run? They may as well have called it Fast Fast. So of course it ended in the blink of an eye.

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.
