Bulletstorm Review

Bulletstorm Logo

Campy, violent, and over the top - what's not to like?

Everyone has found themselves playing a game where, upon quick observation, it appears to be easier to charge that foe off the near by balcony instead of taking pot-shots at them. With most first person shooters on the market these days there is no doubt that a thought like that has crossed peoples mind in some form or another. While said ideas may not have been pushing someone off a balcony, there may have been some other crazy idea floating around in the old noggin. That's where Bulletstorm by People Can Fly and Epic Games comes in. Bearing that in mind, know this; Bulletstorm does not take itself seriously, nor does it want to be taken seriously.

Bulletstorm places the player in the shoes of Grayson Hunt, a pirate on the run with his cyborg pal Ishi, from a corrupt General. Granted, it's a basic and highly formulaic revenge plot, but going into Bulletstorm for the story is the equivalent of going into Metal Gear Solid 4 for that 10+ hours of uninterrupted gameplay. The story does have its share of twists and turns but nothing you wouldn't expect.

There is something different though. Something interesting. This time, Epic sheds the traditional drab gray atmosphere in favor of a much more colorful environment. From the onset, Gray and Ishi encounter what was formally a huge resort planet, jammed pack with clubs, malls, and any other thing you'd expect on a planetary resort. Since then shit has hit the fan and it's not as family friendly as once was. That may be partially the fault of the feral tribes, cannibals, man-eating planets, and other beasts lurking about. Yet, unlike the lands most often seen in games with the color palettes of Fallout or Gears of War, color is bountiful. This world is filled with bright hues of multiple colors and excitement for good reason. What better excuse to make the world look fun by putting it in an environment that was made to grab vacationers attention? Albeit, the player can still be found fumbling around in the boring-old gray and brown areas we've all come to know and loathe. To the games benefit though, those happen to be few and far between.

Catherine Coming to the US this Summer

Catherine Logo

It has officially been confirmed that publisher Atlus will be releasing Team Persona’s Catherine stateside. That said, we should be seeing Catherine strut her stuff on to store shelves sometime this summer. The title will be available on both the Playstation 3, and the Xbox 360.

This announcement comes unexpectedly; considering that only a few days earlier Atlus had stated that it had no plans of releasing the title in North America. Perhaps the change was prompted by how well the game was received in Japan, having sold 162,000 copies in it’s first week alone. Following Atlus' self-contradictory announcement, a series of screenshots, as well as the first English language trailer for the game, have been put up. Check them out at CatherineTheGame.com.

Gears of War 3 Beta Details Emerge

Marcus Fenix

Gears of War 3, undoubtedly one of the Xbox 360’s most anticipated games this year, not only receives a release date, but a multiplayer beta that will include exclusive extras for Gears heads to use in the retail copy upon release.

Gears 3 hits store shelves on 9/20, but if you can’t wait that long to get locked n’ loaded and ready for action, then maybe the multiplayer beta will serve as a little taste to tide you over until emergence day.

Microsoft and developer Epic Games have announced that the beta will take place sometime around mid-April. Aside from just playing the beta, the gamers will also have a chance to acquire a Gold Retro Lancer and Cole Train in classic Thrashball pads.

Dead Space 2 Review

Dead Space 2 Logo

Everyone's favorite space faring, necromorph killing, engineer returns.

It seems like a good idea to point something out before officially discussing Dead Space 2. If the original Dead Space was enjoyable, Dead Space 2 will be equally as enjoyed. There is, in fact, no doubt that this will be the case. Why is this so, one may ask? Namely because excluding a few slight changes, this lovely sequel is almost exactly the same as its predecessor. Not that this is a bad thing by a long shot, but as stated if anyone liked the first, they will enjoy this installment.

Dead Space 2

Dead Space 2 continues the epic saga a couple years after the first game while continuing to follow one of everyone's favorite engineers, Isaac Clarke. Isaac has been brought aboard The Sprawl, a large city orbiting what's left of one of Saturn's moons. Important to note here is that The Sprawl is an active city with a population exceeding one million. The people live happily and care free in their city among the stars. That is of course until the inevitable Necromancer outbreak which leaves the city decimated with a large majority of the population dead.
