Bulletstorm. Captain Swearword's Big Fuckin' Adventure

edited June 2011 in Games and Technology

Bulletstorm is an FPS being developed by Epic and People Can Fly and it is absolutely crazy. You have a slide, an energy whip and it looks like there'll be some crazy weapons. There's something being called the skillshot system that awards points for killing enemies in certain ways that are apparently used to unlock new stuff. It's going to be on PC, 360 and PS3.

Here's a trailer



Personally I think it looks awesome.

    +1 for NiN.

    But could they at least show more than 0.87 seconds of gameplay before making a cut?

    Game looks nice, I like the unlock things through creativity part.

    The topic doesn't quite do it justice though.

    Best bit of the EA show and just came outta' nowhere on my radar. I hope you can upgrade the gravity whip thing so you can swing dudes around like they're big fleshy flails and shit.

    I got a bit of a Bioshock + Borderlands vibe from that.

    This can only be a good thing.

    Pretty much my most anticipated title right now, screw "realism" and "stealth", bring on the mighty foot and oneliners.

    ... There better be oneliners.

    Bulletstorm came out of left field at E3 for me. I wasn't really anticipating it, and then that gameplay footage took me by surprise. You might say it scared the di-- Nah. Too predictable.

    I'm ready for a nice over-the-top People Can Fly style FPS with Epic technology behind it. I expect nothing less from the company that brought us the Stake gun, and a gun that shoots shurikens and lightning. In spite of that, I anticipate using that gravity whip and my foot more often than the guns. And I certainly hope the dialogue remains as completely cornball and self-aware as the E3 trailer promises.

    If the Gravity Whip is half as much fun as the Painkiller, I'm all over this.

    The Painkiller is one of the greatest weapons in any FPS ever.

    I just watched the videos.

    I can't wait for this.

    Well, going by the developer's history, we'll get pretty but featureless levels filled with identical teleporting hordes of mindless enemies, and not a lot else.
    Hopefully they can rise above that.
    Not that Painkiller was bad or anything, but it could have been better.

    "Killing people in style" means killing them with the same couple moves over and over and over!! YAYYYY!!!

    It looks very gimmicky but it looks sexy but it looks gimmicky (but sexy).

    I am unsure what to feel.

    true

    but honestly, just from that trailer, there are so many good things going on just design wise, i could accept poor level design with the creative killing system and the cool weapons

    I watched the announcement trailer and thought this was some online game because of the scores flying around.

    I proceeded to watch the E3 showing. I... I just don't know. Can games be that awesome? Is that legal? Its not right.

    I recently bought the Painkiller Universe set and Resurrection, after years of slinking by on the demo. Vanilla PK is joy incarnate with a freeze-ray-shotgun surgically grafted to its fun-zone.

    This is getting bought.

    It looks pretty good IMO and is shaping up well. They are clearly only showing some limited things so as to not ruin major surprises (whatever happens with the giant cog and the huge monster for example).

    "FACIAL +50!"

    The guys who made Painkiller, which was a great Serious Sam clone, are making a game with a cannon gun. Which fires bouncing balls, which can be kicked.

    Yes.

    Bulletstorm and Duke Nukem Forever in 2011. Between parking bricks in aliens and having my dick scared off, 2011 will be a fun year.

    Edit: All thats needed now is for Croteam to get on with Serious Sam 3. The religion of "Quotology" would be complete.

    2011 is the year of the Boot, cover shooters need not apply.

    From the slide-kick, to the leash and kick, and the engagement of the Mighty Foot, it is best to meet your enemy face to foot.

    It has been way too long since I last kicked someone in a shooter. Sure, I could use the butt of my gun, made of metal or other solid substances... but, is that really comparable to the sheer manliness that I can exert through my boots?

    Its kind of a shame how downhill the Painkiller series went, and I hope that Bulletstorm is the sign of good things to come for PCF. I don't know if it'll be befitting of a franchise of its own, but a series of similar games with varying themes would be more than welcomed. They can make a Bulletstorm: Infinite, in which you use your foot to kick Ming soldiers while using a match-lit repeater, and I'd be all for it.

    Painkiller had some really cool MP. Examples:

    A mode where you can only kill a player, while they're in the air. This involved using grenades to get them in the air. How about a mode where everyone has the exact same gun, and it changes every couple minutes, and you have unlimited ammo for whatever the weapon is? Do these sound good to you? They sound good to me. I only regret I never got to actually play them, so I've only seen them in clips.

    I look forward to possible "Whip and Foot" only mode, environmental hazard kills only mode, falling-to-your-death mode and all sorts of whacky stuff that takes advantage of what would seem to be Bulletstorm's strengths.

    Edit: Oh man, that unlimited ammo mode, except with the Bouncer... Combined with the kill-in-air mode... Oh my.

    I hope People Can Fly will include at least the Stake Gun from Painkiller. I'll miss popping a grenade into the air and then hammering it home with a 2 foot long Stake into a crowd of zombie ninja things. The combo attacks from Painkiller were the best. Kinda hope when this game comes out they'll port Painkiller to XBLA

    Confirmed.

    Man, video game voice talent is pretty much "pick from these five guys and these three ladies".

    ... They ate, slept and worked. Some of them found uninteresting partners at work who they married and came home to. Sometimes they would half-heartededly thrust into each other and children were made. They lived a middle class existence until their deaths to heart disease and cancer.
