    I actually played through Bullststorm fairly recently, and at no point did I ever think, "Gosh, I'd like this a lot more of I was actually Duke Nukem", or whatever other bullshit they added. The graphics don't really need updating either, since you're usually too busy seeing how many ways various enemies can be made to burst into neon numbers to notice. It's not like it's even a cult classic or whatever. If it's made by People Can Fly then give us a Painkiller remaster or something. This shit is pointless to begin with, and giving it that price tag - with no possible discount - is just absurd.

    ...I was just about to click "Post Reply" and thought to check something. Apparently the Duke Nukem part is a pre-order bonus.

    Get super mega double-fucked, Gearbox.

    This game wears out its welcome long before it ends.

    Mediocre at best. Playable, certainly, but I would not recommend. The only entertainment comes from creative killin' and the occasional joke that's not utterly dumb.

    If you like gimmicks you might like it, but the game itself is pretty poor IMO. The type of game for folk who replay the nunchuck scenes over & over when watching films in awe.

    -Full priced.
    -Not free or discounted for owners of the original game.
    -Nothing new except higher definition graphix and the Duke character (pre-order DLC :lol:) which is just an out of place, lazy reskin of the game's main character with nonexistent lip sync.
    -Denuvo.

    :lol:

    They're trying to lure everyone in with a 'if enough people buy this overpriced lazy hackneyed rerelease you might see a sequel' carrot on a stick as well.
    Just go fuck yourself, man.

    Randy Pitchford keeps pulling off shit like this and wonders why he has a bad reputation. Just stick to Borderlands, bro.

    Apparently they thought TotalBiscuit's coverage is more important than their G2A partnership.

    There is no way they believed that giving an ultimatum to G2A and asking them to change their entire business model and functionality within 1-2 months was gonna work. They probably just did it as damage control to pretend they care about devs and to have an excuse to drop the LE.

    As for the game ... yeah, I think the original version works just fine.

    Well done, Bitchford. You managed to make the remaster look worse than the original.

  15. why should literally anyone care, again? I pirated Bulletstorm semi-recently because I kinda like to play through shitty corridor shooters in 5-6 hrs on a weekend. What's the point of this remaster? How is this a valuable property? Ehhhhhhhhhh

    They made lazy remaster, threatening people to fund sequel (muh cliffhangers)
    Joke on them, all that cash will go to fund another Borderlands, just like it happen with developement of Alien CM and DNF and other projects...

    I'd say it's a bit better than mediocre, particularly if you got it for free like I did as a PS Network game of the month. It's gleefully OTT and doesn't outstay it's welcome. As a full-priced title it would feel pretty mediocre but as a fun & free balls to the wall action fest it's good value.

    i played it before the remaster, it's fine tbh. the creative kills are fun and it's the right over the top without the mechanis being too popamolish. it's not serious sam, but i still enjoy it

    Installed on my shitty "new" laptop to test how the lowly 5500 intel integrated graphics deals with it. Surprisingly it's playable with obviously low frame rates (just like Risen 2 that i started recently). Seems like very enjoyable romp with lots of over the top violence, snarky talk and some pretty neat combat mechanics. A bit too much cut-sceny and quick-timey at times, but the actual action is fun. Mack and ggmwhatever were right. Seems like underrated gem.
    One thing i'm curious is why the main protagonists view point seems like he is either very short or constantly crouched. When i get the view of npcs i need to rise my W to see their faces. It's like they intentionally made the camera point lower for some reason. In the cut scenes he doesn't seem shorter than anyone else.

    It's a fun game but, as enjoyably silly as the story/campaign is, I really feel like there was a lot of wasted potential in this game. With how fun the guns are to use, and the skillshot system, it should've just been way more gameplay heavy than it is.

    I loved bulletstorm. Context of its release is important. At the time everything was being made into gear of war, everyone and their mother tried to get into cover shooters. Then comes Bulletstorm and it is totaly different. Yes you still have gears of war models just with different skin but how you play game was entirely different.

    The thing about Bulletstorm is that it looks like Gears of War clone but plays like 90s shooters + a lot of movement.
    Writting wise i also loved it. It is one of the last actually good 90s type action scripts, it starts pretty meh but characters and interaction grow on you.

    That being said, oof at that demake, that city skape shot was actually one of the best looking views in gaming at the time. Now it looks like ps2 game lol.

    It doesn't play like 90's shooters at all, but it still is pretty good. Bulletstorm is what Doom 2016 wished to be.

    Played the game recently and was disappointed, alll the enemies are too chunky health wise, weapons don't feel satisfying, and the visceral creative kills often seem to be a bit to slow to implement them. Game needs more speed at least.
