Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Review To say that Bulletstorm draws parallels with Duke Nukem 3D is to put it mildly. There’s that same cocksure attitude, same over-the-top one liners, the same penchant for violence, even a similar range of physics-defying weaponry on offer.

Bulletstorm

No joke, splitting your insides

In fact, if it wasn’t for the fact that Duke Nukem Forever is just around the corner, I’m sure that gamers everywhere would be looking to Grayson Hunt, Bulletstorm’s cigar smoking, whiskey drinking, masochist, as the Duke’s spiritual successor.

You see Bulletstorm plays like every action game you’ve ever played, only turned up to eleven. Do you think those red barrels explode? Of course they do! Will those electricity pylons turn anyone I boot on to them into a human conflagration? Yes indeed.

Bulletstorm

Nothing like an open fire

How will Grayson respond to the unsubtle threat of “I’ll kill your dick”? Simple, with the witty riposte of “I’ll kill your dick!” It’s not the Bard’s work by any means, but such absurdity makes its hard to suppress a chuckle. It’s for these reasons and more that Bulletstorm demands attention.
