Bulletstorm - A Cult Classic Worthy of Revival?

Bulletstorm will soon receive a VR remake, but is it worth revisiting? Take a look back at the original 2011 release.

Absolutely. I remember when the game came out on ps360, I thought: "wow, another shooter" and in the 7th gen that wasn't an unfair reaction.

But when the game was re-release on ps4 I took my time an played it (it was on playstation plus at the time) because, ironically, I missed a shooter in that console. And boy, what a fun game! They made a game to be played and not to be watched. It was a fresh air in the genre that deserved better.

So yes. Maybe it find its audience this time.

It's an awesome game. The only exception (for my taste) is the script writing, which is OTT, but I guess that's what they were going for. It does at least match the OTT action and gore. I thought it was great overall and actually being in this game is going to be bonkers!

locomorales103d ago

Yeah, I agree that storywise it's not an Oscar nominee, but it's like a porn movie in game format.

Agree with the over the top script, and felt at the time that was the only thing that people were hyped about, the language and not game play.

But in vr this game is going to be great. It has everything that would make a great vr game. Lots of bombastic action, gunplay, blood, and that leash.

Looking at the gameplay now it seems that the game was ahead of it’s time and was perfect for vr before vr wasn’t even off the ground.

I loved the game back in the day and will love in VR even more!

I got it on PS3 at launch and am still waiting for the long rumored sequel to finally be announced. Currently have it on Switch and wish a physical version of that would be released. Absolutely love it.

FinalFantasyFanatic103d ago

I actually feel like this game gets revived all the time, not that I hate the game, I actually quite like it, it's just constantly available, unfortunately I'm not a fan of VR so I'll be skipping this version.

Loved the game on 360. Will be getting this.

Same. As someone who is lucky enough not to get motion sickness, I hope this game retains the high locomotion sliding and fast paced twitch shooting of the original.

Deeeeznuuuts28d ago

100 percent getting this as soon as I get VR, loved the game back in the day and think it would be awesome in VR, can't wait

CobraKai28d ago

This was such a blast to play. Definitely interested in a VR version

Venoxn4g27d ago

This was a pleasant surprise! I liked this game a lot


Duty Calls - Epic Games' Forgotten Call of Duty Parody

Back in 2011, Epic Games and People Can Fly launched a Call of Duty parody - Duty Calls - that has been lost to the annals of history.

closed_account96d ago

"Duty Calls: The Calm Before the Storm" sounds more like a massive case of the sh**s. 😂

I saw the parody mention, and half expected the ability to drop a deuce on your opponent... I left disappointed.

Never too much Taco Tuesday!! Now if only we could just achieve eternal Taco Tuesdays without the inevitable Wipe-It Wednesdays!!! 😂😂

The Quest Gaming Showcase Put Sony's to Shame

The Quest Gaming Showcase put Sony's PSVR 2 efforts to shame. Big reveals, new trailers and more highlighted an exciting future for Quest.

That's weird.

According to lots of people, Sony's showcase was bad because a lot of the games shown are coming to Xbox

Now suddenly the Quest Gaming Showcase was amazing, even though most of the games shown are coming to Playstation.

I don't get it.

The fact is most of the VR games shown in that showcase are coming to PSVR 2. So doesn't that mean their showcase was bad?

Petebloodyonion111d ago

Perhaps ppl find the Playstation showcase bad because the Vr portion lasted about 10 minutes and about 5 games (including Beat Sabers) versus 1 hour plus for Meta?
We saw several games announcement.
We saw Quest 3.
a deep dive into Asgard Wrath2 (not coming to PSVR2).

potatoseal111d ago

Yeah but VR is all Meta has to worry about. Sony has console owners out there. Sony has..
- 120 million PS4's out in the wild
- 40 million PS5's
- and only just under 1 million PSVR 2's

This opinion piece is more akin to comparing apples and oranges imo. Sony didn't have a VR showcase. They had a playstation showcase. Not even 1 percent of sony consumers have PSVR2. You could argue that is a reason they should have shown more. But then again, Meta probably bought up all the exclusive advertising spots for VR games because VR is all they have to worry about. Again, the vast majority of the VR games shown are coming to PSVR 2.

Petebloodyonion111d ago

" The show will run a bit over an hour, focusing on PS5 and PS VR2 games in development from top studios from around the world."
Not my words
Now I couldn't care less that some of the games are coming to PS VR2, the point is they were shown (including Arizona Sunshine2) at an event that had next to zero visibility (have you seen the countless article about the Meta showcase on N4g?).

Unless Meta has paid an insane amount of money to each company for some exclusivity I doubt that a dev would have passed the chance to shine in THE PS SHOWCASE watched by millions in favor of a small check to reveal their game in a showcase that will be barely discussed.

Last but not least here's something to think about:
Wasn't the PSVr2 the headset made for CORE gamers that bring the POWER of PS5 to VR so we could have PC AAA VR gaming instead of cheap experiences made for a mobile phone chipset?

Yet today we are debating that these mobile experiences are also coming to PSVr2.

potatoseal111d ago (Edited 110d ago )

Yeah I hear you. But there is no debate on if they are coming to PSVR2, we know they mostly are. The debate was really, at least originally, just about if the Quest showcase "put sony to shame". I just don't think it did and I don't really think it's fair to compare the 2 in an apples to apples sense. There are other different variables for both companies. Imo, was their VR showing better than Sony's VR showing? Yeah I would rank it higher. Did they put sony to shame? LOL I really don't think so.

fr0sty110d ago (Edited 110d ago )

Sony's showcase lasted just over an hour, and had 2 consoles to show content for, one of which is only 3 months old... and people are complaining that the 3 month old console had less content to show than the 3 year old one? I see goal posts getting carried all over the field here. Not to mention announcing a new headset that costs $100 more than the last one (only $50 less than psvr2), and is still inferior to PSVR2 (No OLED HDR, no haptics, no Foveated rendering, no eye tracking).

EvertonFC110d ago (Edited 110d ago )

Don't know what VR games you have been playing but I haven't played one mobile game on psvr or VR2 or PC VR for that matter

shinoff2183110d ago

Psvr2 has been out since mid Feb this year. Relax man. It's already been saidbits selling better then the doom and gloom tried to report. Let it be out things take time.

Petebloodyonion110d ago

Nobody asks for or expects a 50%/50% show but Sony did say that the FOCUS would be on PS5 and PSVR2 games.
Last I checked, Focus means the center of interest or pay particular attention to.
So please tell me how Sony put focus on PSVR2 when the not focus PSVR had 7 NEW games announcements at E3 2017 (back when VR was nonexistent) squeezed between Spiderman, Horizon Zero Dawn, GOW, Detroit Become Human, and Uncharted legacy.

This year: 3 new games 1 patch and a reminder of a Vr mode for less than 6 minutes squeezed between Gran a Gran Turismo movie trailer ( 2:40 min) and tons of indie games.

And just a reminder for the next time you say Sony does not spend time on things that nobody owns
