PC Getting Bulletstorm Demo After All

Remember this spurt of controversy back in January when we heard that the Bulletstorm demo would be gracing the Xbox Box and Sony Playingstation only? Turns out the PC will be getting a demo after all. Epic vice president Mark Rein has tweeted that the PC demo is in the works, and should be available "shortly after" the game's release this Friday. Strong!Just to keep…

Rips & Tears In Rain: Bulletstorm Hands On

Following the recent wash of ingenious marketing and controversy it’s a little tricky to remember that Bulletstorm is simply an FPS from the Painkiller developers, coming out in less than 2 weeks. Will it be any good? At EA’s invitation I sat down for a lengthy hands-on. That’s the perfect set-up for a dick joke, by the way. My restraint knows no bounds.

Will Bulletstorm Murder Your Children? (No)

Yesterday Fox News asked the headline question, "Is Bulletstorm the Worst Video Game in the World?" Which is spectacular. It's a quite remarkable piece of writing, worthy of our own Daily Mail. And why is it the WORST GAME IN THE WORRRRLD? Because they've named some of the Skill Shots with sexual innuendos. Which, they absolutely astonishingly claim, causes rape.

1.25 Million Download Parody AdverGame

The Bulletstorm tweeting-thing announced that People Can Fly's free Call Of Duty parody, Duty Calls, has been download 1.25 million times over the weekend. The brief game, which mocks the "realistic" shooter genre, was an advert for Bulletstorm's more science fictional approach on the macho manshoot. And, well, it was actually pretty funny. As adverts go, it was one of the more inventive ones we've…

Bulletstorm To Feature Constant Online DRM?

EDIT: Stand down! People Can Fly's Creative Director, Adrian Chmielarz, has tweeted saying that Bulletstorm only requires a constant internet connection for installation and online play. This simply looks like an incredibly poor choice of words on EA's part, since none of the other "digital" versions on the disclosure page list a persistent internet connection as a requirement. Phew. For posterity, I've re-posted my original…

Bulletstorm Skillisodes Have A Stupid Name

Bulletstorm isn't getting a PC demo and we are ANGRY, yes, but then they release a trailer with a line like "pucker your butthole!" and all is forgiven. Now Epic have started releasing short videos detailing the various skillshots integral to the game, and they're calling these skill-related episodes... skillisodes, a word that I can barely type without going and washing my hands. But then…

Bulletstorm Diorama For Satirical Reference

I spent some time trying to figure out how to crowbar in my own reference to that bit in The Simpsons where Skinner declares there to be a "diorama-rama", but it just didn't work. Anyway, this is the Bulletstorm trailer where they get clever, because it's a diorama scene that reference's Halo's one, and that is like a satire or something. Ah, "pastiche". Yeah, that's…

Trigger-Happy Holidays From Bulletstorm

I've just realised that Bulletstorm's above killer robot wheel might in fact have merely detached from an even bigger killer robot truck. Wouldn't that be amazing? People Can Fly, feel free to drop me a job offer. I expect at least £5,000 per year plus unlimited access to the coffee machine. Also, I want the job title of Ludographer. You see, Ludo is ancient Greek…

Clifford Bleszinski On Bulletstorm “Creativity”

South of our clicky bit is a video in which Epic Games lead singer Clifford Bleszinski claims that Bulletstorm's manshooting isn't simply shooting men, but a lot of other creative stuff, much of which appears to involve smacking people around using "physics" and killing them with "explosions" and stuff. You're apparently going to want to toy with them, to farm them for points. This says…

Bulletstorm Is Rude, Gigantic Death Wheel

Bulletstorm is due to turn up in February next year, and it's probably going to put smiles on a few faces. Not because it's clever, but because, well... there's a point in this trailer where it's not clear which way it's going to go, and then someone says "Son of a dick!" and all is revealed. There are things videogames do well, and there are…

The Gun Club: Bulletstorm Shootosity

Finally watched the latest footage from Bulletstorm, which - like last time - is producer Tanya Jessen having a good old yabber over the last demo. In this case, from the Tokyo game-show. This time, we're weapon centric, talking about how they've concentrated on making sure the gun that fires enormous cannonballs is the sort of enormous, cannonball-firing gun they want. Go footage!

Mr B(ulletstorm): “We’re Big On Vistas…”

Me and Quintin met Cliff Bleszinski a few years ago. He was the only man in the room wearing leather trousers. This means something, I'm just not sure what. In other news: GT have grabbed a walkthrough of Bulletstorm with Mr B talking People Can Fly's absurdo-shooter through (below). It contains a bunch more footage, with a rechargeable cyberbuddy, and some really lovely vistas. So…

Watching The Weather: Bulletstorm Footage

Looks like Destructoid got the scoop on the Bulletstorm video, and thanks the magic of sharing we're able to post it for you lot below. People Can Fly's next game, which was announced only recently, is a manic-looking FPS with lots of floating people kicked in the face. Dudes get kicked, people get shot. It's the magic formula. The co-op shooter is still a way…

Leaden Clouds: Bulletstorm

People Can Fly (they of Painkiller) are going to be producing a new Unreal 3-powered shooter called Bulletstorm. It's the subtle tale of two futuristic mercenaries stranded on a world of flesh-eating mutants. You can expect some fancy shootin':Players step into the role of Grayson Hunt complete with an arsenal of over-the-top combat moves and outrageously large guns. Bulletstorm’s array of distinct ‘skillshots’ produces unprecedented…
