    I won't pretend to know the specifics, but apparently pc demos can be used to crack the games and get them on torrent sites faster. So that's a pretty big incentive not to make one right there I guess.

    Release a demo the day of the game's release then. Not everybody buys a game day one and it's a fair compromise.

    PC demos are a pain in the ass to get out the door before shipping. Generally the console-specific bugs get fixed first and then when they're in certification you do the PC-specific bugs since all you have to do to get a PC game out the door is put it in a box. There's probably no PC demo because the PC market is small (comparatively) and it's just not done yet.

    The game is fun, the graphics are great and the dialogue makes me embarrassed to play it in front of my wife. Seriously, Epic? Poop hole?

    It always makes me shake my head when a game is all RAWRMATUREAUDIENCESONLYMOTHAFUCKARAWR!!!! It's like it's designed to be played in secret by a little kid whose dad happens to be a gamer.

    Dad: "Now Billy, you aren't allowed to play any of the games on this shelf up here. And don't look at those DVD cases, either."

    Billy: "Challenge accepted."

    I never turn on language filters, but if this game had one, I think I would. I have nothing against swearing when it feels natural. But this is just a pathetic attempt at being badass. It fails miserably.

    It really is meant to be over the top and immature. Shamelessly so. There are so many games that try to be highbrow and mature and grown-up only to feel the need to appeal to the adolescent audience by making the abnormally attractive female lead/assistant strip down to her underwear or punctuating its dialogue with 'realistic' language. At least Bulletstorm knows what it is and where its audience lies. No, I don't expect I'll be buying it, but I appreciate its honesty.

    Played through the demo a couple of times now. It's the crazy bullshit you can pull off that keeps you coming back. Like lassoing a mine around a dude and then kicking him into a pack of his buddies, then thumping them into the air for a massive explosion.

    In my two playthroughs, though, I've already hit the "running up an invisible stairway with no way down" bug, a la Mass Effect 2. Does not bode well.

    I don't understand the complaints about the dialog, but I guess I'm just too busy lighting faces on fire while kicking dudes off cliffs. Maybe I just don't hear it over the crazy shit I'm doing.

    After all the "GRIM DARK SERIOUS" shooters we've had recently, I'm glad to get my hands on a 'Crank'-styled game that's just goes "fuck story, fuck trying to be art, go shoot some dudes in the craziest way you can think of". Shadow Warrior meets Vanquish, if you will.

    Tried the demo last night, and while I still don't think it's the kind of game I'll be buying (reminds me a lot of The Club, and I'm just not one for chasing high scores), I was surprised by how fun it was. Also found both myself and my girlfriend laughing along at the over-the-top-ness of it all.

    How's the mechanics? Regenerating health, cover, iron sights? Do we get to hold all the weapons at one time? Does every weapon have an alt fire?

    You have regenerating health and lots of it. All guns in the demo have a zoomed in aim though its not always useful. All the demo weaps have an alt fire, which is usually a souped up shot. Its bug fuck nuts and I loved every god damn second of it.

    I also love the adolescent humor they are going for here. Its like taking the testotersone of a gears of war, taking out anything serious and then throwing in a lot of penis humor for shits and grins.

    Exactly. And its hilarious to hear it coming from Stephen Blum. Second game where's he's got to do that (first one being Mad World) his voice really fits with the "Don't give a shit" vibe they have.

    I'm sure this will be a blast to play multi as well, chaining together new and horrific ways to murder people.

    Not once have I doubted the humour. I wouldn't dare blaspheme against such funtimes.

    I just needed to hear those magic words: "alt fire all day, erryday". I need to know that PCF are still completely out of their minds and slap things together to make ultimate weapons of doom.

    There aren't cat silencers in the demo, but you get three weapons, an assault rifle thats alt fire is a charged up like one hit kill. A grenade launcher that I frankly forgot had an alt fire because its like a grenade bolo launcher that wraps grenades around dudes, and a pistol thats alt fire is some type of flare gun. You also have your energy whip that can be used to drag dudes too you, or you hold down its fire button and you set of an explosion that sends everyone flying for you to murder in creative ways in the air (once launched much like kicking a dude they are slowed down for maximum fuckery).

    In the demo you find a beer and get "intoxicated" which screws up your aim, but gives you a bonus for killing dudes while wasted, also you can get poisoned and get a similar score modifier.

    The enviroment is riddled with things to fuck guys up with in the small section, electrical current, exposed rebar, and even an elevator. Definately seems like variety is the key to life here.

    Something I realized pretty quickly: if you only play the demo level once, you're not going to see the fun in the game. You'll be disoriented, confused and pretty much stick to just shooting things vanilla.

    Play it at least 3 times. It's short (only 6 minutes or less), so multiple plays are easy to do. The first time, learn the mechanics. The second time, switch it up a bit. Do more kicking, do more leashing, use the environment. Third time, start to go crazy and brutalize some dudes. If by the third run you're not ripping shit up with a grin on your face, then it's probably not the game for you.

    Is it even possible to die? I'm admittedly putting up scores that my grandmother could probably beat, but I've never died. Screen pulsing red, blood splatter, the whole works, but never death.

    Cover is for the weak.

    Also; the thumper is practically made for that room full of dudes that he had so much trouble with. 4x Voodoo Doll if you do it right.

    With all the crazy things going on in the demo, I hope they put a part into the game where you can do things bullies used to say in the 80's.

    Like a "rip off their head and pee down their throat" option or something outlandish like that.

    Just seems like it would fit right in.

    I'm sure it is, but I didn't. And he couldn't hit a dude in the ass for the life of him, but I got that and "first in last out." Which I'm terrified of what that means considering where I was shooting a guy when I got it.

    Ok. I had heard about this game, but didn't know there was a demo. How long has it been up?

    Anyway, downloaded it while I was at work, came home and and just tried it out. I've only been through once, but wow it's fun. Kicking a guy into electrical wires was probably the funnest kill, but I'm sure there's way more just in the demo alone.

    Environmental kills in any game are just fun. I use to love playing the Punisher game on Xbox.
