Bulletstorm Looks Pretty Cool
Epic Games is putting out another game before Gears of War 3 and that game is Bulletstorm. Check out the video and commentary by Cliffy B and judge for yourself. Sure it's another first person shooter, but it seems like it could be a lot of fun, plus if you buy the Epic version of the game you'll get early access to the Gears of War 3 beta when it's released.
Amazon is running a special right now through February 21st... if you pre-order Bulletstorm they give you a free upgrade to the Epic version, which in turn gives you access to the Gears of War 3 Beta... check it out. Amazon is usually really good about shipping the game out and having it on your doorstep on release day (if you select that option).
