They made a parody of Call of Duty which is pretty hilarious -

It's a 700 MB PC demo that lasts about 5 minutes. Or just watch the video that pretty much has the whole thing -

Amazon now has the game at $58 with a $10 promo credit plus with the upgrade to the LE.

Played the demo, was kind of disappointed. It just wasn't as fun as I thought it was going to be.

Aren't all launch versions the LE? I'm pretty sure they are. Kmart will have a promotion where you get $20 back in Shop Your Way Rewards with purchase. That's probably a better way to go if you want this game at launch. I'm hoping for a Crackdown like effect where there are scores of used copies for under $20 once the GoW3 beta is over.

I would jump on the Kmart deal but I've got over $60 in credits at Amazon. Plus with us here in Tennessee we have a 9.8% sales tax so you're at $5 off the bat.

Re: Bulletstorm - (Epic Games/People Can Fly - 360/PS3/PC) It'll scare the dick off y

This seems to be one of the first amazon game credits that is NOT applied to all existing pre-orders. If you had it pre-ordered before the credit, you have to cancel and order again, or email amazon to see if they will give it to you (something you might have to do if you used credit to pre-order this) Someone on CAG confirmed that he was not going to get the credit automatically until he emailed amazon.

Amazon got under my skin a bit when they stopped the price adjustments 30 days after a purchase... if they now are looking at game credit as something separate from their game price guarantee, I am no longer pre-ordering ANYTHING until the last minute.

Re: Bulletstorm - (Epic Games/People Can Fly - 360/PS3/PC) It'll scare the dick off y

Played the demo and was taken aback at how cynical this game is. Easily the dumbest and most juvenile game I've played since Gears. It's games like this that make it hard for adults to play games and for games to be taken seriously as a medium.

It's an especially glaring contrast as I play a smart/mature game like Mass Effect 2, which is reminding me of the best sci-fi TV series in terms of writing and acting.

Beyond the asshole trappings, I didn't think the gameplay was as fun as the Vanquish demo, which felt very similar to me.

every game doesn't need to be a masterpiece. some games are just mindless fun. how is this game any different than a stupid movie. just because some movies aren't oscar material, doesn't mean they shouldn't be made.

Well mentioning ME2 with Bulletstorm is like mentioning COD to Saints Row or Halo with Red Dead Redemption or GOW with Bioshock. Different styles, different appeal. Some of the fighting games look "childish" to me but hey fun to play once in awhile. Destroy All Humans is a laugher but still some fun. And yea I've played both ME series and it's in another league

Yeah, it's like comparing every single game to Borderlands... oh wait.

Lighten up Francis, that's like comparing Exorcist to Evil Dead 2.

I'm not comparing it to ME2, but rather contrasting. I wish I could keep a more open mind and look at it just like I look at movies, but I can't because society doesn't, retailers don't, politicians don't, etc.

Between this game seemingly having no redeeming qualities whatsoever and that amazingly cynical Dead Space 2 commercial (the game itself looks great), it's no wonder avg people think gamers are douches.

I would love to try Mass Effect 2, but I'm still in the first dialogue tree from the original game. "Blah blah blah blah blah blah."

Btw, I haven't even tried the Bulletstorm demo but I think I'll pass/wait on this game. I'm "scared" that you have to chain combos to be successful, seems too difficult for me.

But yeah, we need all kinds of games.

What does it matter to you what society, retailers, or politicians think? I understand why people care about how others treat a particular hobby that we all enjoy, but I don't see why it should have any effect on your enjoyment or view towards a game.

It's not like that at all - as with most first-person-shooters, you can just shoot enemies in the face (or the dick) without worrying about combos, and move on your merry way.

I played the demo, and my dick is thankfully intact. It did, however, bore my butthole off.

Maybe more importantly then, what is the current state of your taint?

....and don't forget the "Blue-flame Combo" on the butt. I think that super-charge flare would cause some serious gas issues.

Re: Bulletstorm - (Epic Games/People Can Fly - 360/PS3/PC) It'll scare the dick off y

Well you better grab before it gets banned. A story over at Fox...

"Is Bulletstorm the Worst Video Game in the World"

http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/...ds/?test=faces


In the new video game Bulletstorm due February 22, players are rewarded for shooting enemies in the private parts (such as the buttocks). There’s an excess of profanity, of course, including frequent use of F-words. And Bulletstorm is particularly gruesome, with body parts that explode all over the screen.

But that's not the worst part.

The in-game awards system, called Skill Shots, ties the ugly, graphic violence into explicit sex acts: "topless" means cutting a player in half, while a "gang bang" means killing multiple enemies. And with kids as young as 9 playing such games, the experts FoxNews.com spoke with were nearly universally worried that video game violence may be reaching a fever pitch.

“If a younger kid experiences Bulletstorm's explicit language and violence, the damage could be significant,” Dr. Jerry Weichman, a clinical psychologist at the Hoag Neurosciences Institute in Southern California, told FoxNews.com


Remember what they said before GTA came out, about the same thing and look what happened.
