In a somewhat baffling move, it appears the raucous Epic Games and People Can Fly first-person shooter Bulletstorm has been removed from the likes of Steam. It's a classic case of "here today and gone tomorrow" as the skillshot-laden adventure that released to favorable reviews has suddenly disappeared from sight, without so much as a hint as to why it has been removed.

It could have something to do with the fact that the PC version utilized the Games for Windows service, which is apparently on the decline -- but as there's no official comment on the situation thus far, all we can do is surmise that this may be the case.

Oh, but don't fret. Look at you, hacker. If you're so inclined, you can still nab a copy of Bulletstorm via EA's Origin platform for $20. See? There's an upside to all of this. You can still wallow in an overabundance of nut shots, and that's beautiful.

Epic Games: Bulletstorm 'didn't make money for us'

Though many of us around here found People Can Fly's Bulletstorm to be quite enjoyable, it seems that the gaming population at large wasn't so keen on the absurd first-person shooter. Speaking to Kotaku, Epic Games president ...more

Review: Bulletstorm

You can’t really play Bulletstorm wrong per se, but it’s a game in which "the point" is fairly easy to miss. Sure, you can run through its eight-hour campaign, relying on your default military assault rifle to bla...more

Chemistry is governed by a definite set of rules. Opposite charges attract, like dissolves like, matter is always conserved. There are more rules than just those, but one of the great things about the study of matter and its ...more

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: Amid the Ruins

The last episode of The Walking Dead was probably my favorite one yet -- and that's including all of Lee's tale from the first season. Clem has made the switch from tough to full-on badass depending on your choices, and ...more
