Bulletstorm is launching on Switch this summer

Bulletstorm's over-the-top, combo-chaining, explosive, obscene action is coming to a new platform in a few months. One of the first proper announcements at Gearbox's PAX East panel is that Bulletstorm is being ported to Switch. This ve...

PlayStation Plus lands a really solid month for November

That leak from earlier in the month was correct! Yakuza Kiwami and Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition will be headling November's PlayStation Plus free games. Both are well worth checking out, especially at the low price of free. I'd suggest no...

Duke Nukem's Bulletstorm tour is a big failure

When it was announced back in 2010 that Gearbox would acquire and finish Duke Nukem Forever, people let out a sigh of relief. Gearbox had a great track record of excellent first-person shooter games and had recently released Borderlands to ...

The new Bulletstorm trailer is incredibly not-Bulletstorm

Bulletstorm is a game that's drenched in ridiculousness. Its inane over-the-top combo-centric action is complemented by its equally juvenile dialogue. Here's a sampling of some choice quotes: "I will kill your dicks!"; "You still reek...

Bulletstorm Remaster images found on Microsoft E3 press drive

People Can Fly's Bulletstorm is kind of a cult classic at this point, and it's just as well that it has an audience -- because it might be getting remastered. According to Eurogamer, Microsoft's E3 2016 Xbox One press USB kit has screens fo...

So...Bulletstorm 2?

Polish-developer People Can Fly had already earned some acclaim for itself with Painkiller, but I think the Epic-co-developed Bulletstorm is what really did it. It was ahead of the resurgence of wild, violent first-person shooters and short...

Bulletstorm inexplicably yanked from Steam

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 advent...

Bulletstorm dev on sales: 'We did everything we could'

People Can Fly wanted to make a sequel to Bulletstorm, one of the most pleasantly surprising first-person shooters in years, but the prospect was deemed too risky. (I'm still not over this, if you couldn't tell.) Instead, the studio went on...

Bulletstorm sequel would have been 'a big risk'

Speaking to Eurogamer, People Can Fly founder Adrian Chmielarz has expressed the Bulletstorm sequel that could have been, and why the studio moved on to Gears of War: Judgment instead of seeing the project through to completion. "The t...

New studio The Astronauts forms licensing deal with Epic

Do you remember a time when Unreal Engine 3 wasn't powering every game coming out, from epic sci-fi RPGs to football titles? Yeah, neither do I. Before a studio announces they'll be using Epic's meat-man simulator, we pretty much have to ex...

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 the world alight,...

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, me, me, me, brou...

The Jimquisition: Fight in the name of childishness

Maturity and reason are considered virtues in the realm of debate, but when one side insists on childishness, the other can never win. That side may think it'll prove itself superior with logic and facts, but you cannot teach the terminall...

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...

Bodycount dev: There's room for FPSs beyond Call of Duty

An interesting tidbit came out of a Bodycount interview with Codemasters game director Andy Wilson. "We looked at Bulletstorm and I think it's fair to say that it was a sort of 'acid test' for us," he tells CVG. "Because they were coming o...

Gun Sonata Pack primed and ready for Bulletstorm PC

It was a scary first week or so for the PC version of Bulletstorm from a technical standpoint, but I'm glad I made the purchase now that the dust has settled. People Can Fly is trying to pull us back in with the Gun Sonata Pack, now availab...
