ShootMania: Storm, with its creative tools and its day-glo combat, seems worlds away from the brown, gray and blood of so many of today's multiplayer man-shoots. I've yet to play it myself but because it looks like a cartoon rather than a war, I'm tempted to poke my head in and risk the slight public humiliation of hanging around the roots of a leaderboard or two. Pre-orders, at a 20% discount, now give instant beta access and there's a new trailer to celebrate that fact. Musical choice? I can't be sure, but I believe it's Shostakovich.
