Just sayin.
Did they really?

That might explain why the music from the game sounds so much like the guitar solo for TUF...

YouTube - GoldenEye - Bono & The Edge

Tina Turner ended up doing the singing.

I couldn't tell you about any of the music for the video game, or for the rest of the movie. Just for the traditional Bond intro music.

Ohhh. Never mind then. I'm talking about the music in the snow levels.

Is anyone here getting Bulletstorm? Looks like a lot of fun, and the Duty Calls publicity stunt was brilliant.

Looks almost like it has a taste of Team Fortress to it. Dunno, I'll have to read up on it.

My copy just arrived, and I'm going to be late for work...

No install required, 36 mb patch on starting though. If you preordered, you get access to the Retro map pack (redone maps from KZ2), which is 350 mb.

So what do you think, mofo?

I'll spoiler my thoughts so I don't ruin it for anyone

 
I've only really played the campaign mode, since the MP wasn't very stable tonight. I assume it's just because there are so many people on the servers today. Single player is fun though. I got a little more into it as the game went on, but like KZ2, it feels like somethings missing. Or that it's sort of a patchwork of ideas that never really gels. I think the main problem is that it seems like they really need to hire people for the story. The pacing of it is sort of horrible and it's filled with tired cliches. (the scene near the beginning when their vehicle was teetering on the edge of the cliff felt like some bad buddy comedy and them both screaming 'woooooaaahhh' in unison as it went over didn't help much either. The voice acting in general is pretty bad. But I am having fun when there is actual gameplay. It doesn't feel as weighty as the second one did, which is cool. The vehicles Ive driven so far are pretty cool. Those crazy turret mounted hellfire missle things are awesome. So ya, it's fun, but the lame story ruins it for me a bit. Instead of being immersed in it, I'm thinking about how unqualified the people writing it must have been.
Hopefully multiplayer is fun. Seemed alright from the few matches I was able to join. I still like the more tactical multiplayer shooters though, so I imagine I'll probably go back to BC2 at some point. Who knows though, maybe this one will turn out to be addictive

Melee kills in MP are pretty awesome indeed

I think your critique is spot on. I ended up calling in sick to work today, and actually finished the campaign. The sad thing is, I'm one of those people who usually always takes 3 or 4 hours more time than what most people say it took them in games. So if I finished it that quickly, I'm sure some people will fly through it. It was fun though, overall I had more fun with it than I did with KZ2's campaign. The story is all over the place though, and would have a lot more impact if you never saw what was going on with your enemy's decision making / leadership and what not.

JT and I got some matches in tonight until both our PS3's froze at the same time. I'm getting better, better than I ever was on KZ2 at least. Playing as the engineer for now, but think I'll try out the tactician once I get the final repair upgrade. Seems like a good deal of fun so far. I went 17 - 0 one match. I spawned, walked over to a rocket turret and repaired it, and then blew people up with it from afar for the rest of the match. Awesome.

YouTube - Battlefield 3 Premiere Gameplay Trailer

I'm sure the console versions won't look this good, but still pretty awesome.
