Bulletstorm For PC - Only £14.99 @ Amazon

Amazon have now dropped the price of the PC version of Bulletstorm, for those who missed this price @ Game :)

A brand-new and unique First Person Shooter IP from the teams that brought you Gears of War and Painkiller. Epic Games, People Can Fly and Electronic Arts present Bulletstorm, an over-the-top shooter that introduces signature ‘kill with skill’ gameplay.

Set in a futuristic utopia, an elite peacekeeping force thwarts the rumblings of civil war. But deception within the ranks has caused two members of the most feared unit, Dead Echo, to strike out on their own.

Now washed-up mercenaries turned space pirates, Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato’s latest quest for a quick buck goes south. Stumbling upon their ex-commander’s warship, the Ulysses, Grayson engages this behemoth head-on. Outmanned and outgunned, his only option is to ram the Ulysses in a suicidal bid at redemption.

Narrowly surviving a crash landing and now stranded on the abandoned paradise planet of Stygia, Grayson and Ishi find themselves surrounded by hordes of mutants and flesh-eating gangs. They survive on two objectives: get off the planet alive and exact revenge on the man who sent them there.

Taking the role of Grayson Hunt, wield over-the-top combat moves and some of the most uniquely innovative weapons ever seen in a first person shooter that all feed into Bulletstorm’s™ distinct ‘skillshot’ system for unprecedented levels of frantic gameplay. Unleash the Bulletstorm!

Preview:
The facts behind Bulletstorm read like a recipe for excitement among hardcore gamers: first off, it’s an all-new first-person shooter, a rare occurrence indeed; and then there’s its development pedigree, with Epic Games (Gears Of War) and People Can Fly (Painkiller) taking the reins jointly. As if that wasn’t enough, it goes out of its way to be as gleefully and gloriously over-the-top as it possibly can. The word ‘generic’ isn’t in Bulletstorm’s vocabulary.

Story-wise, Bulletstorm casts you as Grayson Hunt, an ex-mercenary turned space-pirate, whose spaceship collides with the military ship it is battling, and both crews end up stranded on Stygia, a once-paradisiacal planet now abandoned and overgrown. Teaming up with the cyborg Ishi Sato and, unwillingly, Trishka Novak from the rival ship, you embark on a mad quest to escape the planet by overcoming all manner of enemies which even include mutated boss-plants.

Bulletstorm’s gameplay eschews such mundane concepts as mere survival: the game is all about killing with style. Luckily, you have an unprecedented set of tools designed to let you do that. The weaponry, for example, is simply outrageous: the Boneduster, for example, is a quad-barrel shotgun, the Flail Gun fires two grenades chained together, which can wrap themselves around enemies before exploding, while the Bouncer fires bouncing bombs that you can kick into enemies. All the weapons have chargeable alternate-fire modes that render them even more deadly – for example, the Boneduster alt-fires a volley of flaming bullets that vaporise any flesh in their path.

In conjunction with the weaponry, you get an upgradable leash which lets you pull enemies towards you or, when you level it up, whiplash them up into the air. Plus, you get powerful kick and slide moves – all of which, when administered, cause a slowing down of time and a temporary suspension of gravity. Combine all those attributes together, and you reach the very essence of Bulletstorm: spectacular combos which earn you different amounts of points. You might, for example, pull an enemy towards you, then kick him into a cactus or an exploding dustbin, or kick a bouncing bomb into a plant and poison group of assailants. Each combo has its own, wryly amusing, name, and the more stylish the moves you conjure up, the more points you get, which in turn yield upgrades, alt-fire ammo and so on.

Visually, Bulletstorm won’t be mistaken for any other game: lush, colourful vegetation has permeated everywhere, even the abandoned cities. And there’s a deeply addictive multiplayer mode, too, in which up to four people take on waves of enemies, Horde-style. In order to progress, they must pass a points threshold, so co-operation is the name of the game: there’s even a move in which all four players leash an enemy and pull him apart. If you like your games larger than life and thoroughly overblown, then you’ll be needing a copy of Bulletstorm.

Hot from me, I just wish it didn't use Games for Windows Live (which ruins any game in my opinion).

Got the game. Just installed it. Had a slight difficulty with Windows Live - if it brings up a box saying verifying game release date, just press the enter key.

Because Microsoft are morons.

ive just got it from gamestation, installed it and the play icon is greyed out

anybody else had this before?

so is the game decent?

If you cant work out GFWL , you should be playing a console. The only people who complain about DRM are the ones that dont want to pay for the games ! I havent had one single problem with GFWL or any other DRM, maybe i'm just lucky ? Although I doubt it.

Great game, really enjoyed it, a bit shallow but good popcorn gaming :)

Oh really, considering GFWL was Microsoft's attempt to turn the PC market into something like their Xbox Live system...

GFWL seems to add a layer of complexity rather than adding any useful features. As a game developer I don't understand why people integrate it into their games. When I tried to play F1 2010 it just got in the way and wouldn't log me in (even though the password was correct).

DRM seems to punish the people who buy the game, people who pirate it have the DRM removed and sadly have a better experience.

Saying that, I'm tempted to buy the game, it looks good fun :)

Or their attempt at steam, and to give the PC and Xbox owners the option to get gamerscore on both if they want it ? I really dont see what all the fuss is about, what is so wrong with it that you dont like it then ?
#14
who really gives a crap about their "gamerscore" anyway? Especially on PC, where the gamers are actually capable of thought...

Surely its about the gaming and not actually about whether you play a PC or not ? i'll leave the "my PC is better than your xbox" argument to the idiot fanboys. I am a gamer, and I own every gaming platform there is at the moment, of which I have enjoyed games on them all.

While I agree its not the be all and end all of all things gaming, I find it quite good to keep track of my gaming achievements, and maybe make you try something you normally wouldnt try.

I really dont see what is wrong with the added functionality, the only problem I can see for some people is the DRM and thats mostly only for the people who want to steal the games.

Utter nonsense. I recently bought Batman via Steam, not knowing it used GfWL. I've played it twice and now GfWL is telling me my SAVED password is incorrect. I can probably reset it by clicking that I have forgotten my password, but this takes the p***. GTA: Episodes (also via Steam) claimed I had my GfWL password incorrect, now I wonder whether that was a fault on their side too. I also have a friend who lost his save file and could not retrieve it.

The frustrating thing in both cases is
(a) I am playing them via steam, which could be considered DRM anyway so there is no need for GfWL (it is there for the non-steam version, I know), and
(b) people who do pirate it probably get a nice version without any of the GfWL rubbish.

Now, suppose instead Bulletstorm used Steam as it's DRM - then scoreboards etc could link to your Steam friends list, which I would say for the vast majority of gamers is their main gaming friendlist. Yes, I may be a Steam fanboy, but 99.9% of the time it actually works for me, whereas GfWL seems to ruin every game in which I use it without adding anything useful.

Edit: interesting link

gfwl doesn't even support text based instant messages - you have to send a voice/text message akin to e-mail. Even xbox live has instant messaging, what the hell?

And I could say you are talking utter nonsense, I have Batman also, and has worked flawlessly for me, as have all the other GFWL games, I have about 180 games on steam also. Far too many fanboys willing to jump on someone else's bandwagon nowadays , and we wonder why gaming is dying a corporate induced death ? *sigh*
