Some Bullet Points for Bulletstorm

I’m still on the fence about whether or not I plan to pick up Epic Games Bulletstorm. But as the release date of 2/22 nears I seem to see more and more good things about it. One being this amusing trailer that my buddy Ian posted over at Omega-Level.

Also, as most of you Gear heads know by now, the Epic Edition of Bulletstorm will include access to the upcoming Gears of War 3 beta. Personally I feel that including the beta sends the wrong message to the community. That to increase sales of the game they needed to add this incentive that would push some fans of Gears into buying this game. My views on this have changed slightly after seeing some of the trailers and gameplay. But there’s still plenty of time to make my decision of buy or no buy.

Check out the Bulletstorm site to get more info and videos on the game.

Thoughts on this game? Do you plan on picking it up?

Gears 3 is Getting a Beta!

Praise to the gaming Gods!!

Via the Official Gears Website

You read that right—a multiplayer beta is in the works for Gears 3, giving you and scores of other Gearheads an opportunity to test-drive 2011’s biggest game before release. “What modes will the beta include?” you bellow, shaking your fist at the sky. “What new weapons will I employ in my tyrannical march toward competitive online domination?” Easy, friends! All will be revealed in due time. Sit back, speculate with your fellow fans on the official Gears forums, and keep your eyes on gearsofwar.com for more details.

Just another thing that will make this Gears the best in the series (in my opinion of course). After some EPIC (pun intended) fails with the Gears 2 MP, Gears 3 will be getting a public beta next year. On top of that news Gears 3 will also have dedicated servers and host migration.

A beta, dedicated servers, AND host migration! It’s like a gaming dream come true. I’m still a little irked about the release date move but these new additions will be worth the wait.

So here’s some MP footage to get you excited. You might be interested in the new color choice for your lancer.

Gears of War 3 Delayed

NOOOOOOOO!!!! Say it isn’t so!!

Gears of War 3 has been delayed until Fall 2011.

Via Gearsofwar.com

Gears of War 3 promises to be the biggest entertainment launch of 2011. The teams at Microsoft Game Studios and Epic Games have done great work thus far readying the title for release in the spring of 2011. However, we’ve elected to move the launch of Gears of War 3 until fall 2011 to make it the marquee title for the holiday season.

So a business decision not a quality issue basically. They want GOW3 to be the COD of 2011. The big name game for the holidays next year.

Personally I am a little disappointed, but this industry is first and foremost a business. Money comes first and I get that. So with this extra time my expectations have risen. This game better freakin blow me right the hell away.

Choose Wisely

In an Xbox press release today…

The fate of Carmine lies in your hands! For the first time in franchise history, Epic Games and Microsoft are giving fans the chance to decide the fate of a character in “Gears of War 3.” By purchasing avatar gear on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, fans and gaming communities around the globe will decide the destiny of the newest Carmine brother set to appear in “Gears of War 3,” with all the proceeds going to the Child’s Play Charity.

What an awesome way to get the gaming community involved with a game. Not only that, it supports a great cause! Personally I plan to purchase the “Save Carmine” shirt. Don’t you think that family has been through enough?
