First footage of Bulletstorm: How many kills can you count?

Bulletstorm might be one of the most sadistic videogames I've ever seen. It's a shooter designed to discourage just shooting, one that rewards you - with actual points - for mercilessly torturing and toying with enemies before finally allowing them to die. If you're killing a guy with a single bullet, you're doing it wrong. If you're impaling him on a giant cactus needle before wrapping him in explosives, you're starting to learn.

This debut trailer - which showcases the very first gameplay footage of Bulletstorm - celebrates that ultraviolent style. Seriously, try to count how many poor, screaming enemies die in this video, and in how many disturbingly different ways. I got 25, but I'm pretty sure I missed a few...

Is Bulletstorm the new Gears?
Epic Games and Cliff Bleszinski are bringing you another ultraviolent franchise. Let's see how the two compare

    @RonnyLive19881 left for dead doesn't need iron sights, it would just slow the game down. teamfortress would probably benefit from it as well as half life episode 3... if it ever comes out

    I totally agree with bluscorp there are only so many ways you can shoot somebody until it gets old... not saying shooters are bad... just way overdone right now.. and btw, LIMBO looks crazy cool

    @bluscorp It's for Xbox Live Arcade, but will most likely hit PlayStation Network and Steam at some point. Here's my article:

    Man.....this game looks sick im keppin it on my radar with slatterhouse on the side

    This looks like a hi-def MadWorld. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

    Ahh, you gotta love Epic and their constant aim to make every game they make as bloody and as masculine as possible. I mean jeez, it just look's like a complete clusterfuck of bullet's, but it doesn't look like as though there are many AI on screen at once. If this is true, why so many bullet's? Oh I forgot, it's because this game is being developed for MEN by MEN.

    @RonnyLive19881 Bioshock has iron sights, you just have to click the stick. It's a pain, and a painful game so I'm not disagreeing with you, just pointing it out. @bluscorp You listed awful games, try out something like fallout, or bad company two, something that adds another layer to the shooting.

    @bluscorp A puzzler, you say? Have you read my articles on Limbo?
  • bluscorp - May 13, 2010 8:20 p.m.

    @Spydie4x4 Iknow your trying to be arigent, but with all the mw2, waw, jc2 and so many others, I do feel like a puzzler. BTW i have a wii and am gonna get some platformers.
  • RonnyLive19881 - May 13, 2010 8:07 p.m.

    Good it has iron sites, I hate Bioshock, Left4Dead and Team fortress 2 for not having them. Makes the games feel dated IMO.
  • RonnyLive19881 - May 13, 2010 8:01 p.m.

    Super Mario Galaxy will be 1000X better than this blood bath...
  • it_burns - May 13, 2010 7:56 p.m.

    That was a pretty cool usage of Nine Inch Nails' "Wish" right there.
  • Spydie4x4 - May 13, 2010 7:39 p.m.

    @ Bluscorp: Then get a Wii. Seriously, if bulletstorm isn't grabbing your attention then maybe you should check out the latest Mario game.
  • bluscorp - May 13, 2010 7:34 p.m.

    I'm sick to death with shooters to be honest.
