There endeth my interest in this title.http://www.destructoid.com/bulletstorm-pc-requires-persistent-internet-connection-192844.phtml
Fans of PC DRM have something to celebrate today, with news that Bulletstorm will demand a constant online connection in order to be played. More like Bullshitstorm, right guys?
It seems Electronic Arts is going to "pull an Ubisoft" while "protecting" People Can Fly's ludicrous shooter from common thieves. The news comes from EA's own product disclosure page, where it states, "PERSISTENT INTERNET CONNECTION AND ACCEPTANCE OF END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT REQUIRED TO PLAY."
You'll also be thrilled to know that the game (which already snubbed the PC by not releasing a demo outside of consoles) demands use of Games For Windows Live, better known as the worst thing to happen to PC gamers since carpal tunnel syndrome.
PC gaming. You have to love it.
Or if it's really good I guess I'll get it on the PS3. Or just not bother.well, they really fucked the pooch on this one
fuck them I love PCF but this just confirms a bargain bin purchase
LOL, might be. Overall trend is pretty abysmal though."We at Microsoft absolutely support PC gaming and we are the champions at furthering PC gaming advancement. To prove this, we will remove Alan Wake from the PC and make it Xbox 360-exclusive."
In that instance I actually think MS did the right thing keeping that pile of dogshit off the platform.
It's because of all the raping that the reviewers are doing as a direct result of playing Bulletstorm. Fox News said so, therefore it is truth.So the game is out in less than what? An hour, and I still haven't seen any review on this one.
I played the xbox demo last week, and it was pretty good, but I'd like to know how the PC version faired.
The game has black bars top and bottom at 1920x1200 , nothing is wrong with my setup and its annoying. I'm not sure if this is done on purpose or its just a game bug but .. not something I was expecting..What are the technical issues?
The game came out at 12:00 am est today , I bought it. When did I say I played the demo?How did you get the demo already?
Well my biggest problem has so far been the lack of proper 16:10 support. Not really sure why that was excluded but I guess it doesn't bother me a ton just an annoyance.Damn keep us updated on your thoughts. I'm weary getting shooters on pc nowadays that aren't made by valve..the online community just isn't there for other games usually.
