Epic nostalgia is epic... Great read, and brought back a lot of memories. ^^

I bought Bulletstorm JUST for the gears beta, that was at, but I found a gem in this title. I love the immature humor, and a game that revels in what it is rather then trying to be something it's not. It's not an epic story, it's not a morale teaching method, it's not a "tour de force" of forward technology, it's a shooter..a shooter pure and simple, nothing more nothing less. The amusement value from blowing my enemies to chunks and using the enviroment in fun ways made the game for me, and I still play it to relax to this day. Good on you Epic, and keep up the good work imo.
And people wonder why PC gaming suffers... "hey, our PC sales are down, so let's introduce MORE DRM... that'll convince people to buy it right?" -_-
@carlthenimrod: Planetside was epic on release... I was in an guerilla outift, taking down bases and doing gen holds in the back to deny enemy links base links and vehicles. That game was the most fun I've ever had, working with a coordinated outfit to down multiple bases at once, and then the team bombing runs, base assaults... Most of my fondest gaming memories come from the first years of planetside. There was so much to do, so many ways to go about battle... Working outside the friendly "zerg" was greatly rewarding. True enough if you were part of the zerg, your focus on the battle was small, but the teams working outside the zerg had huge parts in turning the tide. I personally can't wait for this game, I tried to go back to the original planetside, but a tiny population, with too many hackers turned me off to it. I have amazing hopes for this game and will more then likely buy on release.
@Majestic_XII: Got the regenning health from the tank.. it'd get tagged hard, life the first shot right in the face, and he'd get a WARN light flashing for a bit, that would slowly fade out. Also later on near the end he takes a few rocket hits, wich bring up the warn light again, wich stays after targets are dead and slowly fades out again, so in this section it would go to figure there is Regenerating tank health. I'm just hoping it isn't going to be a staple thing. *shrugs* my hope and opinion on it.
Pretty, but overall not all that exciting. The tank combat would have been interesting if there was more variation, if you actually drove around. The entire tank sequence looked like an "on rails" shooter, didn't have much freedom to go booking around or anything, just move in a straight line, stop, shoot. Move in a straight line, stop, shoot. Also, regenerating health? What happened to engineers and repairs... :( Would really like to see how the infantry portion of the game plays out, if there is still classes and teamwork, or if they went the way of the popular shooter with re-genning health and lone wolfing.
Having to pay for stats? lame... Video guy and video? Rather amusing.. I admit, I laughed.. Like the video, hate the pay for concept. Video though, two thumbs up for amusement value.
After watching the fiasco of the site going to paid and the uproar and not understanding what the other sites were about.. It took me this long to get off my ass, scrape together 50$'s and toss it towards the whiskey crew. Subscriber or not, it's your choice, but after getting to know the crew a bit b watching them every day of the week, 50$'s is the least I could do to show my appreciation. So here's to Brad, Ryan, Jeff, Vinny, Will, Norm, and all the others that make the shows incredible, and keep me coming back daily to see what's new. Thanks. ^^
I got rofflestomped so hard here... I never played Dead Space 1.. Watched a "let's play" of it to get the story, jumped into this one.. I start up.. die in the first area when your running away.. "wow.. I thought this was normal difficulty..." Run through there.. felt kind lame for getting smoked in the tutorial.. then.. this bit.. this was deaths two and three.. So not nice when you get one shot trying to figure out what to do in a panic. >.< Got through it by finally getting stasis off as it's on top of me and SPAMMING SHOTS AMG I'M GUNNA DI... oh.. it's dead... I WIN!
