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 Mike Capps said that it "didn't make money for us." I wasn't under the impression the game had sold terrifically well or anything, but damn, that's harsh. Even still, Capps didn't come off as regretful.

"The next thing we do with People Can Fly will be great." As a fan of both Bulletstorm and Painkiller, I'm looking forward to it.

Epic blames piracy for Bulletstorm's disappointing sales

Despite plenty of hype, solid reviews, and a premise that seemed almost cynically geared toward the modern American gamer, Bulletstorm didn't do as well as Electronic Arts hoped. People Can Fly's violent shooter didn't set th...more

Storm's Adventure with Bulletstorm and Duke Nukem Forever

Now that those other shooters are out of the way, it's time for me to play a few that I wanted give a spin.  And I think this video encapsulates my mantra, "I only look out for numero uno." Bulletstormstormstormstorm, m...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

Review: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth

Some concoctions will leave you feeling sick to your stomach. You need look no further than Yukiko Amagi's culinary misadventures for proof of that. Other pairings seem to work far better than they probably should, like Atlus...more

Review: Sneaky Sneaky

Stealth is a tricky game mechanic to pull off well. If it is too slow it can be dull, but if it is too fast it is more action than stealth. If it is too predictable it becomes mundane, but if it is too random it requires more...more

Review: Logitech G910 Orion Spark

In high-level competition, every little advantage counts. It is why Olympic swimmers shave their bodies before a race, why pre-med students fight tooth-and-nail for every half point on every test, and why gaming keyboards exi...more
