Desync's stunt-kill shooting kicks off this month

Neon Bulletstorm nonsense

Take the stunt combo kills of Bulletstorm and the neon- wait, you didn't actually take that did you, reader dear? Reach into Bulletstorm's guts and- how did you do that? That wasn't an order, just a rhetorical... what's that on your hands? Is Bulletstorm okay? Can you cram that back into its guts? That's really not on. I'll try to be more literal.

Adult Swim Games have announced a release date of February 28th for Desync [official site], a first-person shooting video game about killing cyberenemies in cool and elaborate ways to rack up megapoints. I think it looks enjoyable.

So! Desync is a singleplayer FPS about killing enemies in cool and complex ways to score megapoints and climb the leaderboards. Pop 'em into the each and shoot skeet. Knock 'em into traps. Explode 'em. It's also got special moves and, last I saw anyway, some sort of shot-parrying item/ability/doodad. Enemy attacks are big on melee moves and actual projectiles you can dodge, which looks pleasing for a game like this. I do like weaving between projectiles. I like stunt kills and all. I like the look of this game.

Look, this is the insight you'll get from me on a Friday afternoon when I'm already concerned about you taking me literally and ripping fleshy chunks out of innocent video games.
