Bulletstorm Dev Honors Yahtzee With Priceless Gift

image

People Can Fly shows Yahtzee a little love with a very special shout out in Bulletstorm.

Despite the fact that he bashes pretty much every game he gets his hands on, our own Yahtzee has a wee bit of pull in the gaming community. Perhaps that's because developers recognize that beneath his crusty and malicious exterior beats the heart of a true lover of games - or perhaps it's just because they share his fascination with Branston Pickle. Then again, for Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly, it might have something to do with his influence on the buying public. His legendary review of the company's earlier title Painkiller, in which he theorizes that the only way the gun that shoots shurikens and lightning could be more awesome was "if it had tits and was on fire" increased Amazon sales of the game by a staggering 7403 percent. (Nope, not a typo.)

People Can Fly wanted to show Yahtzee some appreciation and figured there was really no better way than by making one of Bulletstorm's guns even more awesome. The result, which you see pictured above, is an unlockable skin that bedecks the PMC with, what else? Tits and fire. (Yes, this is for real.)

Reacting to People Can Fly's homage to Mr. Croshaw, Mike Capps, president of Bulletstorm co-developer Epic Games, said, "Clearly we are striving to be better than even ourselves."

Clearly.

Sweet tits-on-fire awesomeness

My goodness, I don't think I have words that can describe what that is.

If only my girlfriend had fiery tits...

Oh god, this is brilliant. Truly Yahtzee's influence can be only be measured by hilariously awesome gestures like that.

They should have taken it further, and have a hot chick with her clothes on fire, at some point during the game hand you a weapon similar to that in Painkiller. With that paint tag on the gun.

Wow, okay, that is without question one of the coolest things I have ever seen. Tits and fire really DO make everything better.

Now I REALLY can't wait for Yahtzee's review of Bulletstorm, so he can comment on this.

This thread could only be more awesome if it had tits and was on fire.

lol, cool skin xD
Sadly I don't think we have a flaming tits song, only for balls...sadly :3

Wonder what Yahtzee will say if he reviews this game.
Edit: GRR Ninjas!

ha ha ha ha ha nice. I wonder if from now on developers of poor games will be including Yahtzee in a less-than-envious role for some petty revenge.

This thread is awesome. It could be more awesome if we had more pictures of tits and fire...
And less bans for posting those awesome pics.

Flaming breasts don't really seem that appealing to me, but then again, maybe cannabalism is more of a Queensland thing.

Shoot, if only I had that kind of pull in the games industry. Sadly my leprechaun and plasma beam-shooting rifle that dispenses beer and Playboys will likely never see the light of day. Sigh.

Ha ha ha. Awesome. Even more reasons to buy this game.

Although, People Can Fly missed one linguistic bit on that: Yahtzee said the gun should be on fire, not the logo of the breasts painted on it. Still, nice nod and funny to boot.

Haha! that's really great. I'm glad that they took some of the best advice out there.
I love when developers and publishers do cool little things like this.

That really does say it all.

Well done yahtzee, you've done well enough to have model skins made after you.
Also, major props to PCF for such a hilarious easter egg. I am now going to buy this.

I'm sure Yahtzee had a big goofy smirk on his face when he heard about this.

He might mention it in a future column in Extra Punctuation.

Well maybe if it shot surikens and lightning...

Also, wow I hope Yahtzee reviews this game especially with all the crab fox news is kicking around.

How does one get the skin, I want a gun with tits and fire.

i still think he is gonna rip bulletstorm a new one for riding the "omgthisgameissofunandfullofgore"-train. still very awesome

Yeah. Why are crab's so important anyway....

I really want the sequel to Darkest of Days to have that water-skiing kitten now.

i thought they were balls on fire...was wondering when did Yahtzee ever say that...

Because they own undersea hamburger restaurants, duh. also ARRRRGGGHHH typos.

Exactly this.

I smirked just thinking about the smirk.

Actually, it's a British thing.
Yum yum, flame grilled BREAST (stake)

I would imagine they didn't put them on the gun itself because there is no way to add tits to a gun without it looking like a penis.

The fire would have been cool, though.

Not crabs, crab-foxes: the submarine-suburban scavenger.

I do not approve. They should have actually brought the shuriken/lightning gun back, THEN slapped the flaming tits onto that. THAT would have been a real gift.

Edit: Hell, that could even be an awesome gun. Primary fire be shooting shuriken, then the Charge Shot be arcing electricity through all of the shurikens you've fired.

Hahaha! Awesome!
IŽd like to hear what Yahtzee has to saay about this.

Exactly right!

I can't wait to hear what Yahtzee will have to say about this.
