Bulletstorm Features

FeatureThe Witcher game that never was

Made in Poland but not by CD Projekt Red.

The Witcher 3 is out today, and so we've hauled another exciting Witcher-related article out of the Eurogamer archive for you to read again or enjoy for the first time if you missed it. Here, Robert Purchese reveals the story of the Witcher game that never was in an article first published in June 2014.

Feature"The next generation is going to be, possibly for the very first time, the next generation of game design"

Meet Adrian Chmielarz, the Bulletstorm guy whose world was turned upside down by Dear Esther.

"Why is Nathan Drake a mass murderer?" Oh I don't know, but it's the question not the answer that's important. It symbolises a seismic shift in attitudes towards games that may mean, "possibly even for the very first time", that the next generation of consoles also becomes "the next generation of game design".

Before the games industry really loses it mojo.

You may have noticed that my splendid and lovely colleagues Oli Welsh and Martin Robinson have recently become embroiled in what may very well be the most polite argument in the history of the internet, debating whether or not 2011 has been a vintage year for gaming.

And we're back. The games business enjoyed one of its occasional spasms of quality this week, unburdening itself of a modest shedload of excellent games for many tastes on many platforms.

FeatureBulletstorm: We're misunderstood

Adrian Chmielarz reveals the heart behind the new FPS.

At first glance Bulletstorm is a bloody, bombastic blockbuster of an FPS exactly what you'd expect from a developer under Cliff Bleszinski and Epic Games' wing. Subtlety, story and sophistication are not the point.

Bulletstorm

All hail.

Bulletstorm is a game about shooting other people in the nuts and being rewarded for it. It's a game about kicking people into sparking control panels and watching as their limbs twitch and their eyeballs melt.

FeatureEurogamer Expo 2010 Top 10

Including your game of the show.

Every year at the Eurogamer Expo we invite you to tell us what you thought of the games you played, and without fail every year (so far anyway) you exhibit amazing taste in huge numbers. This year's Expo line-up was our strongest and most diverse yet, so we were excited to see what would follow in the footsteps of last year's winner, God of War III, or 2008's Mirror's Edge...

FeatureEA Partners' David DeMartini

On Respawn, Insomniac, Suda51 and more.

As boss of EA Partners David DeMartini is in charge of more games than seems possible for one person. There's BulletStorm, Crysis 2, Alice 2, Reckoning and Portal 2 (maybe) to worry about, and untitled games from Respawn Entertainment, Insomniac, Starbreeze and Suda51 to keep on the straight and narrow.

Shotgurn.

We're sure you would agree with Bulletstorm's assertion that it's "time to break out the awesome". Clearly there is a gap in the market for a demented shooter where you're constantly sliding around on your knees blasting mutant jerks in the nuts and quipping like Duke Nukem with an irony bypass.
