No PC Bulletstorm Demo, CliffyB Indifferent

By John Walker on January 17th, 2011.

No finding out whether this is the sort of thing you want.

Aw, that Cliffy B is such a sweetheart. With the news that Bulletstorm demos will be available for the 360 and PS3, but not the PC, clearly a few people with a big grey box are a little miffed. Is this in case of demo piracy? Er um. So the gaming’s Man Of Tact, as Blues report, has attempted to quell the storm with a thoughtful and thought-provoking tweet on the matter:

http://bit.ly/eTr0BR – BULLETSTORM DEMO COMING TO 360/PS3 JANUARY 25th. In other news, PC gamers are grumpy about this.”

Meanwhile, even though they don’t deserve it, there’s a couple of new videos below.

Lo-Tech: Bulletstorm Specs Friendly

By John Walker on January 11th, 2011.

A man with a gun on a Thursday.

There was a time when a new game from Epic meant saving up the thousand or so pounds it would cost to get a machine that could play it. That sounds so alien now, so ludicrous, that people were upgrading at such vast expenses just to play the latest, greatest PC game. But of course it was an investment in the many dozens of games that would follow, until the next time id released something. But now, thanks to cross-platform publishing, the PC is idling. We’re already so far ahead of the current gen console tech that we can spin our wheels and enjoy our latest games on two-year-old rigs, with the graphics card we bought at the time. Madness. And to prove this point, the Bulletstorm specs look positively pedestrian. They’re below.

Gears Of War 2 Footage

By Jim Rossignol on May 10th, 2008.


God knows when Epic’s hyper-muscular shooter sequel will chainsaw its way through a flimsy format-exclusive to find itself on PC, but here’s the first footage anyway. It’s introduced by the Internet’s favourite Clifford Bleszinski, Clifford Bleszinski, who is the lead designer on the game. By golly it looks a bit exciting: guns, giant machines, flying octopuses ridden by evil aliens. ClickJump for War.

Epic Focus On Money 360

By Jim Rossignol on February 14th, 2008.

How to become very rich, part 1
In a recent interview Cliffy ‘Gears Of War’ Bleszinski, he say:

I think people would rather make a game that sells 4.5 million copies than a million and “Gears” is at 4.5 million right now on the 360. I think the PC is just in disarray… what’s driving the PC right now is ‘Sims’-type games and ‘WoW’ and a lot of stuff that’s in a web-based interface. You just click on it and play it. That’s the direction PC is evolving into. So for me, the PC is kind of the secondary part of what we’re doing. It’s important for us, but right now making AAA games on consoles is where we’re at.

It’s true, we’d all rather be insanely wealthy than mildly wealthy. And talk about a role-reversal, eh? The PC becoming the casual gaming platform where Peggle and friendly MMOs dominate? Weird ass. He’s right though, what terrible times for PC gaming. Disarray, you might call it. The full story is over on MTV’s blog thing.
