Bulletstorm PC Demo Now Available


The Bulletstorm [http://www.amazon.com/Bulletstorm-Pc/dp/B003H0CBT8/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1302034148&sr=8-3] PC demo is finally out on Steam and Games for Windows Live.

Not a whole lot to say about this one except that the demo for the PC version of Bulletstorm, which was teased and then yoinked away in January [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/107894-Bulletstorm-Demo-Coming-to-PC-Eventually] but those of us in the mouse-and-keyboard demographic had to wait another full month just to find out whether we'd get a crack at it at all.

Bulletstorm launched 42 days ago, which I'm not sure really counts as the "shortly after" release that Epic Vice President Mark Rein promised on Twitter, but it's close enough. Better late than never and all that. The Bulletstorm demo is available now on Games for Windows Marketplace [http://store.steampowered.com/agecheck/app/99810/]; what portions of the game it covers isn't made clear but it's probably a safe bet that bad language, boots to the junk and creative mayhem punctuated by copious amounts of blood will figure prominently.

And it's got the same big black bar problem that F.E.A.R 2 has.
Fucking 16:9.

Shame. If it wasn't for Games for Windows Live tainting both the demo and game, I would be downloading it now.

True. If I'm getting this, it'll be for console.

A month and a half since the release of the game itself?

Ahem: fuck off, Epic.

I already raped half the town, next time try hurrying up, Epic
I lol'd.

I also lol'd at the news itself - I can't chalk this up to more than extreme ABSENCE OF GIVING A SHIT.

Making a demo too hard for you, guys? No, wait, it's the PC, therefore it requires extra preparation. Gotta make sure we adjust the elitism quota to 1.21 gigawatts.

true

especially ironic because of 2 major points

1- Epic was ALREADY a PC developer, that turned to consoles for whatever reasons

2- they ALREADY develop the games on a PC

I'm usually not so strong opinionated, but DAMN. GFWL is staining games. Buy Warhammer 40K RTS games on Steam... and use GFWL. I mean, really?

I can see it already."Yo Dawg, I herd u liek...".

QFT. I respect Epic for what they are doing for the mod community but actually making PC games? Not their strong side anymore. This mess is a worse porting disaster then Modern Warfare 2, which compared to Bulletstorm, is a masterpiece of PC gaming design.

About time. I actually had the demo on PS3 before my PS3 bought the farm. I played it for 10 minutes, and got stuck in the skybox.

Elaborate please, a big black bar? That sounds bad...

Bulletstorm? Was that the one with all the swearing or the one with all the grey? OH WAIT, I stopped caring about it a month and a half ago. Who's excited for Duke Nukem? :D

Some games only support widescreen, so when you run them on a 4:3 monitor (square, not rectangular) you get two big black bars on screen, at the bottom and top. It doesn't actually cut out any of the image, but its annoying.

Baically, you know how Bioware games go all cinematic with the black spaces at the top and bottom in conversations?
Imagine that. All the time. In a shooter.
Pretty annoying, eh?
