    Weapons and the Echoes and Anarchy game modes are the topics of the latest Bulletstorm trailer. Crispy! The demo drops for PS3 and Xbox 360 on January 25th.

    Been pretty skeptical about this as a PC gamer , but this actually looks pretty good.

    If they'd put together a proper competitive multiplayer for PC players (why not???), this game could be a must buy rather than its current status as a could buy.

    Yeah I know :(

    But after, with hindsight, an unfair bashing Epic got from UT fans on their own forums. After they released that UT3 Beta demo, you can't really blame them.

    Why no player on player combat?

    I take it they don't want to take the time to balance their combat system for player on player combat, so they take the easier way out, and only include player on bot modes.

    No, I think it's because it isn't a typical guys-with-guns game. The guns play in conjunction with the bullet-time and combo system to form the core of the game. PvP with constant slow down and environmental damage would be a nightmare.

    That's true, with the UT3 demo not being polished...I rather see them take their time to release a really good game instead of rushing things.

    I'm not concerned about the lack of a PC demo, but will wait for the reviews and see.

    I think this is right. I don't think players would like being slowed down constantly and treated like a ragdoll constantly. AI don't mind it all all of course :)

    Besides, if you want DM, there is UT ;)

    If they can find time to do demos for the consoles (with all that certification and ****) they surely could do a PC demo.

    And please, they deserved everything they got for that UT3 beta.
    Im surprised if any non-UT fan bought UT3 after trying the beta.

    Instead they shouldave taken this opportunity to show that the UT3 beta was a onetime misstake and put out a perfect demo for Bulletstorm, but no they just give up.

    Step 1: Release Demo on all platforms except PC.
    Step 2: Complain about PC piracy.
    Step 3: ???
    Step 4: Profit.

    For me it's no problem if there is no PC demo. Im curious for the first impressions on Xbox and PS3. Maybe they find some bugs or exploits to fix while that beta...äh...demo.
    If there is something strange about this than it's a message via twitter from it's own Design Director.

    How can someone official talk that way? He really throw oil on the fire with that message. Im 'grumpy' about that stupidness...

    Considering that pretty much all the bugs from the beta demo shipped in the retail is it really fair to blame the fans for complaining about the game not being finished?

    Retail was no more polished :-/ not sure if thats a fair assasment. NFS HP had no PC demo and shipped poorly as well and that was a recent EA title.

    Also the 90% reviews will be based on the 360 version not the PC or the PS3, I doubt many reviewers will actually play the different versions they usually copy and paste reviews from one platform to the next.

    Yep this is probably the reason.

    PCF's Painkiller did have a multiplayer with Rocket launchers only iirc, so something could have been worked out. Maybe with static environment maps, no overpowered bullet time leash either (the leash's inclusion looks like it'll over simplify and noobify the game anyway, least on PC). If anything the leash looks really out of place already from all the footage so far.

    The leash is the best thing about this game, really. Just that overcharge thing bought me, it got serious potential. This isn't UT anyway with Deathmatch, etc... I'm fine already with the UT3 one which never stops being awesome.

    I'm now pretty much dead set to buy the game as soon as it comes out, feeling pretty confident I'm going to get good value from it. I've enjoyed the fact that epic have shown a consistent, building pace with the PR since announcing the title and are really ramping it up with some imaginative (although not always hitting the mark with everyone) promotional vids.

    Not massively disappointed about the lack of a pc demo, to be fair, since I wasn't expecting one and don't really bother downloading demos.

    Lack of demo is going to be a real clincher for me, since I've been on the fence about this game for a long time. I doubt any of my friends will buy it, so I probably won't get to try it unless I downloaded it - and I can't be fecked to download 8-9Gb of file I'm not massively interested in.

    Difficulty level and speed of game... pad users may find it ok, but PC gamers will get bored after a number of ridiculous kills performed on helpless opponents.

    I really really really want to like this game, but without a demo to try it on, I'll probably DL it before buying it.
