PostSubject: BULLETSTORM   Wed 09 Feb 2011, 10:46 pm

So, the demo is now available on Playstation and on the xbox360. Has anyone played it? I plan to when I get home from work today, But just realized today its available. With the previews and videos I've seen i'm really looking forward to this game. But I'll wait to say I'm super excited till I play the demo, we'll see how it plays. But the concept (not just Killing bad guys, but killing them with fun and creative ways) sounds awesome.

They recently released a short Call of Duty Parody game thats free to download. I also have not done this yet either, but thats cause i'm at work, and our show just ended and I'm still stuck on this old crappy PC. here is a link to a video of the playthrough if you'd rather just watch the game being played.


so what do you guys think? anyone else looking forward to playing this?

It's a short demo and it was a blast. I just hope that the rest of the game isn't the same thing over and over because I'm kind of afraid it will be.

I am worried about the same thing. after playing through the demo, it was fun. But it worries me that the enemies spawn up in the same spot everytime. I know they want you to be able to run through it over and over in an attempt to get the highest score. But Its just not fun when you know exactly where the guys will be each time. I'm hoping this is only a demo thing, and that during the real game they'll have some more random spawning.

But I do LOVE the firework gun. Alot of fun there. lol

I wasn't that impressed with the Bulletstorm demo, to be completely honest. Another day, another FPS game. I like the fact that it's relatively fast paced, and has a twisted sense of humor to it... but that's about where my praise ends. Seems like it's just trying to cash in on shock value, given some of the language and terminology that I heard while playing the demo on both PS3 and 360. I also think the PS3 version is slightly better than the 360 version... for some odd reason or another.

I'm also willing to bet that the enemy spawns will be identical, each and every time that you play and replay a level. I'm thinking this game will be almost just like The Club, only now it's from a FPS point of view and they have more curse words. Just my two cents...

Bottom line, I think this game will have minimal replay value... aside from trying to best your scores and your friends' scores.

New violent video game, about to hit shelves, already creating controversy

From NewsCore
February 08, 2011

A new video game that is due on store shelves on Feb. 22 is already
stirring controversy for being violent, profane, gruesome and filled
with sexual innuendo, FoxNews.com reported Tuesday.

The game, called Bulletstorm, rewards players for shooting enemies in
the private parts (such as the buttocks). There's profanity, including
frequent use of F-words. And the game is particularly gruesome, with
body parts that explode all over the screen. It also has an awards
system, called Skillshots, that ties graphic violence with explicit sex
acts. The experts FoxNews.com spoke with were 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. "Violent video games like Bulletstorm have
the potential to send the message that violence and insults with sexual
innuendos are the way to handle disputes and problems.

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), rates all video games as
a guide for parents; each game carries a letter-label at retail (T for
Teen, M for Mature) and an online-only summary. Several experts noted
that it isn't enforced.

Game publisher Electronic Arts released the following statement:
"Bulletstorm has been given an "M" rating by the ESRB, and we have
adhered to all their guidelines in regards to the marketing and
promotion of Bulletstorm."

California tried to keep Mature-rated games out of the hands of
youngsters by making it illegal for merchants to sell them to minors.
But the Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA) has sued to overturn
the law, which is before the US Supreme Court.

Melanie Killen, PhD, a professor at the University of Maryland who has
pushed for laws that govern the sale of video games, claims the ESRB
rating system is working. The FCC monitors all TV broadcasts and stiffly
fines broadcasters for violating decency rules, she noted, yet there
are no penalties in place for retailers who sell violent games to kids.

"The marketing is clearly aimed at children and young adolescents,"
Killen said. "Politicians were organizing efforts to address violent
video games prior to the presidential election but got distracted by the
election. It is time for senators and representatives to come back to
the issue."

I tried the demo and I thought it was hilarious. It's just one of the
games that's trying to be different/quirky/edgy/etc. People read into
this crap way too much. If it's so bad, then parents should be aware of
it and not let their children get their hands on it. Porn is extremely
sexually explicit and even more easy to obtain, yet there's never any
uproar over it. People need to stop trying to control the gaming
industry, it's fucking annoying.
