Painkiller: Resurrection Demo. No, Really.

Man, that's not a very good screenshot. I'll tell you why, but it'll bore you. Okay - I'll tell you anyway. Basically, gamespress watermarks its shots, charging you to download them without them. Which is fine. I tried to download one, but the actual system is broken. I go to the actual site, and all of the shots are terrible without any actual enemies in shot - impressive marketing fail, randomly. So I have to go to gamespress and crop a relatively interesting bit of the image out to use. So now you know. Happy now? HAPPY?

After the furore last time when they released a version of the demo which wasn’t a version of the demo, a proper 1.2 Gig demo thingy is available. As the video which follows shows, it remains very much Painkiller. Watching it myself, I’m reminded of exactly how much I didn’t like the original and how constantly amazed I am when people can’t tell the difference between it and Serious Sam. Also, how a review of it of mine had its score bumped up without anyone asking me about it. But hey! My name wasn’t on it, so at least there’s no blood on my hands.

Actually, while we’re talking shooters, I’ve got a Q&A lined up with the Serious Sam chaps. Anyone got any questions to ask about the forthcoming reboot? WE ARE YOUR VOICE. USE US TO SPEAK.
