117w ago - Game Designer and Community Manager Arcade Berg at People Can Fly has announced today that Bulletstorm is now out on PS3, and he shared some tips to play like a pro in echoes!
To quote: Bulletstorm is out now on PS3! Its Echoes mode challenges you to complete levels using the most creative kills possible. Here's a head start to a high score!
Try and execute as many different Skillshots as possible on every single enemy. A lot of the Skillshots can be stacked with other ones. For example, you can get more skillpoints out of any enemy if he's on fire when you finish him off - this will give you +50sp for the "Afterburner" skillshot.
You could also do this while affected by Nom Juice, giving you another +50sp for the "Intoxicated" skillshot, and another +50sp if the enemy is also being affected by Puffball gas at the same time (the "Antidote" skillshot) - there are a ton of different possibilities. Experiment!
Every time you perform a new skillshot for the first time in an Echo, the skillpoints you earn for it will be multiplied x5. Execute as many different Skillshots as you possibly can to take advantage of this!
128w ago - Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared some video footage from BulletStorm's Cliff Bleszinski, who explains Co-Op Anarchy Mode and his favorite Kill Combo.
To quote: "Kill with skill" sums up BulletStorm's M.O. admirably. But now that the ultra-violent PS3 shooter is nearing its February 22nd release date, long-awaited details are finally coming to light.
Details including the game's multiplayer mode, which has remained shrouded in mystery since the game's unveiling. While BulletStorm won't include Versus, it will feature a separate four-player Anarchy mode designed for co-op play.
While Anarchy may draw instant comparisons to the co-op modes found in other online shooters, Epic Games Design Director Cliff Bleszinski pointed out that Anarchy is "not like a Nazi Zombies where you just have to survive."
Watch the video above to learn more about Anarchy's unique score-based progression system, CliffyB's all-time favorite kill combo in BulletStorm, why BulletStorm on the PS3 will "very much take advantage of what the PS3 is capable of," and why he's a fan of Blu-ray's storage capabilities.
Based on my hands-on time with BulletStorm, the game is a radically different...
158w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared both a PS3 trailer and interview with CliffyB showcasing BulletStorm for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system today.
To quote: Cliff Bleszinski is a not an easy man to find. When he's not Tweeting away, he's cooped up in Epic Games' Raleigh, NC-based studio working on his latest ultra-violent fascination.
This time that fascination is BulletStorm, an off-the-wall shooter spectacle that will grace the PS3 sometime in 2011. Cliff himself is a big fan of PS3 titles like Heavy Rain and the God of War series, and in our one-on-one interview for the PlayStation.Blog, he expressed excitement that BulletStorm will strut its stuff in front of PS3 players.
In the following video interview, you'll also learn much, much more about BulletStorm's unusual shooting gameplay and Cliff's design inspirations.
Sure, you can kill. But can you kill creatively? Let's let Mr. Bleszinski answer that question (and many more!) in his own words.
