Bulletstorm Announced

Epic Games and EA announce Bulletstorm, the already thrice revealed first-person shooter in development at People Can Fly. The Unreal-engine shooter is due in 2011:

Bulletstorm tells the story of a futuristic confederation protected by an elite band of mercenaries: Dead Echo. When Dead Echo members Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato learn they've been working for the wrong side, they're betrayed by their commander and exiled to the far reaches of the galaxy. In Bulletstorm, Grayson and Ishi find themselves surrounded by hordes of mutants and flesh eating gangs in an abandoned paradise. They have two objectives: get off the planet alive, and exact revenge on the man who sent them there.

Players step into the role of Grayson Hunt complete with an arsenal of over-the-top combat moves and outrageously large guns. Bulletstorm’s array of distinct ‘skillshots’ produces unprecedented levels of frantic gameplay and yell-inducing satisfaction. The skillshot system rewards players for inciting mayhem in the most creative way possible. The more insane the skillshot, the more points players collect to upgrade their character and unlock weapons, which then allows them to execute even more creative moves and exaggerated skillshots.

What about this part?

They didn't really explain much about the leveling system in the Game Informer preview. I'm guessing it just improves your weapons because the preview emphasized that there are three moves which the gameplay revolves around: kicking, sliding and lasso-ing.

sounds a little like Serious Sam to me, and that's a good thing.

Different tastes for different people.

But hey, you can go on being snooty, I'm sure it's worked out well for you thus far.

When I read this is coming from People Can Fly I was immediately interested.

After reading the scanned Game Informer article, I'm now pumped for this game.

BFBC2 does this to me now. I feel like breaking my computer, and yet I keep trucking along.

Sounds more skill-based than level-grind. It may be some of both, but I'm hoping that it leans to the former.

Sounds like a level grind to me. Please explain the 'skill' involved.

You get points for style, basically. So getting a headshot on a guy who's in the air will get you more points than just shooting a guy in the chest until he dies.

Except it's yell-inducing dissatisfaction with BC2. But, like you, I keep trucking along. I love to hate that game.

Can't wait.

Derivative games are derivative.

Is this what visceral means today?

frantic gameplay and yell-inducing satisfaction.
