Bulletstorm Woooooooooooorld!
As some of you may have heard, I work at Epic Games doing QA for a game called Bulletstorm.

Since I actually like the game, I will share with you its campy, hyper-violent glory.

For starters: The E3 demo - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HfCqw_8iKo -

Re: Bulletstorm Woooooooooooorld!
No, that's not how to get people to be excited for the game. Try this: remember Painkiller? Yeah, same people. Don't remember Painkiller? Go get the demo, then go get the game,  then be excited that those folks are doing something new.
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

I never played painkiller, so i couldn't tell you about that.

Turambar, off the record, how many former ex. 3DRealms people are employed by Epic?

Just make sure this game doesn't turn to Borderlands (looked more like level grinding last time I saw it) and you have a sell. It's about time somebody got the FPS done right. Though I'm a little bit worried about the generic looking protagonist and enemies.

Painkiller indeed has a lot of variety in the enemies. I might check the selves of the local game shop again.

[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: Bulletstorm Woooooooooooorld!
I can tell you guys that the E3 demo is actually a pretty representative sample of gameplay, and isn't just some bull**** thrown together montage created to make a good impression.

Also, after 2 weeks of working here looking at all the flaws of the game, it's still fun to play.

Specific pre-ordered copies will come with an invitation to the Gears 3 beta!

I have no idea how they badgered EA and Microsoft to cooperate on this one, but I like it!

NSFW. Tura, have you gotten around to playing painkiller yet?

Cussin' like a sailor man.  It's kinda funny, cause I get the impression he doesn't swear in his regular conversational speaking.
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

Re: Bulletstorm Woooooooooooorld!
Watched the trailers and the dev dairy of the characters and i have to say this game sounds like it might be a damn good laugh, with the overtop swearing and violence! "PULL UP YOUR SKIRT , AND STRAP THAT DILDO ON!!" classic line!

Can't wait to see what the uk newspaper The Daily Mail makes of this one as they condem well almost all video games for being the cause of societys problems.

With Bulletstorm, they might finally be on to something!  I tell you, this game is going to teach a lot of kids a lot of new words that their parents aren't going to like (even though the parents bought the game for the kids and forgot to turn on the mature language filter).

Indeed. I hope this runs well, but it looks far beyond my system. Heck, it looks a lot like Crysis without the vegetation.
