CVG: Don't let the announcement that the Gears Of War 3 beta will be included with the Epic Edition of Bulletstorm factor into what you think about People Can Fly's upcoming FPS.
Yeah, that's a shame really. Because Bulletstorm is really shaping up to be a game that'll make people forget about Gears.
I don't know, this just seems like a gimmicky FPS which borrows a lot from Crysis and the Duke Nukem series.
If you play Painkiller, you will notice it looks like a lot of that game (maybe because are the same developers), Unreal Tournament and a little Duke Nukem and bit of Necrovision. But, still, the game looks fun to play online, just to have fun with friends.
I used to play Painkiller online and yes, you're right. They might also have taken some inspiration from Serious Sam.
I would rather this game ride on its own merits than off the pent up demand of another game. I feel this game will easily sell well without a Gears demo because it is very fun. And yes I tried it (E3 pass FTW). I think this will only serve as more of a fanboy argument than an actual important part of the game. This also might equally kill the demand of this game on one console and drive the demand of the other thus creating a bias in terms of all comparisons including graphics. Overall I think this tactic to sell the game may also work against it in standing on its own. Regardless, I am going to get this game but instead of being a choice on which console to buy for, it has now become the only choice being for the Xbox.
People Can Fly made Painkiller and with that, you can clearly see that their inspiration was Duke, Doom, Quake and Serious Sam. That's all good to me. If anything, this in an evolution of the mad physics and repeated weapon torture of Painkiller. I've got sick of iron sight shooters anyway.
YES!GIVE SOME PAINKILLER FUN!FUN LIKE GAMES SHOULD BE!
I doubt it'll make people FORGET about Gears (Not that I like Gears of War, though...). However, it looks pretty damn awesome, so I'll probably get it sometime next year.
For me Bulletstorm is a sure fire rental, the game shows nothing worth buying and zero replay value. That's just me as others may love this type of game. Bulletstorm should sale a lot of units just so people can get into the Gears 3 Beta other than that it would fail like Enslaved.
It already has. I'm far more excited for Bulletstorm than Gears 3. I don't care for the beta.
i dont see y the sad faces... this game without gears wil still sell coz its freaking awesome... gears3 there is also an insentive hell its by the same parent company epic so i dont see the fuss...feb i will bounce bodies in the day time and chainsaw locust in the evening... i swell time indeed
people will buy this game just for the gears 3 beta
Seems CVG liked what they played of the game, but the headline is just to lure people in. CVG seem to do that a lot.
Thats probably why they delayed it so they could get bulletstorm better sales and publicity using the gears trojan like what MS did w/ crackdown and halo. Hopefully bulletstorm is actually good though.
Hummmmm... Will the beta code for Gears 3 come in the PS3 version of Bulletstorm? just kidding :)
I played Bullsetstorm its fking bad ass.
Not me!Actually this game looks more fun than gears of war!But thats my opinion!
I really think Bulletstorm will stand on it's own. This game could breathe some life into the FPS genre.
EA is gonna make a lot of cash in 2011.. BulletStorm,Crysis2,DeadSpace 2,DragonAge2,Battlefield 3,Battlefield f2p,Battlefield1943PC,TheSimsM edieval,NeedFoeSpeedShift2,Mas s Effect3, .. damn!! http://www.youtube.com/watc... hmm next year on all platforms (maybe not the wii idk) it's the year of the 2's & 3's wtf!! edit:lmao needfoespeed?
Gears 3 Beta = Awesome No local splitscreen co-op = Fail
I've not played splitscreen in forever. It was always back in highschool or whatever, but now all my friends are out working and we just game from home.
Hehe, but this game just screams for splitscreen.. atleast that's what I think. The game looks awesome btw, I will buy it anyway. :9
Wow, people are trowing this game in the trash even before they play... I saw some gameplay videos, and it looks a very cool game. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I'll get it for the Gears beta. The game looks ok .... but there are much better multiplats IMO that I'm looking for too Duke Nukem Crysis 2 Rage Ghost Recon
Because Duke Nukem has totally proven itself to be a great game.....after all the delays, the change in developers, do you honestly think it will be a good game? Half the game seems sexest to me, yay pising in a toilet, this industry needs to dump that and continue making games that are not childish, games that are a uinique experience, SOTC, HL2, Deus Ex, all those games are real games. Not this Duke Nukem crap.
I havent yet finnish all my 2010 most wanted games that are in my shelf and im already been pumped by the masterpieces that are coming early 2011!Let me get back to the great Two Worlds 2, im addicted to it!Buy the way this game looks brutal on the gameplay,i love Painkiller so this cant go wrong!
Bulletstorm riding on the coattails of Gears 3 while they get overshadowed by Killzone 3.
Your world must be where dead sheep go.
Not that bulletsorm will be bad, but it will not be better than Gears 3. They are trying to get sales by putting it with Gears 3 beta.
