Yesterday was the release of Bulletstorm, a First Person Shooter created by Epic Games & People Can Fly. I don’t know how many of you anxiously awaited the release but the game is pretty bad a**. It’s everything you want in a FPS, action, insane guns, and awesome graphics!
The big news about the game was the scrutiny it received on Fox News recently. I’m sure many of you heard about this. To make a long story short, along the side of Fox New Anchors was psychologist Carole Lieberman. After Bulletstorm was targeted for being very violent and promoting crude behavior, Carole said this:
“Video games have increasingly, and more brazenly, connected sex and violence in images, actions and words. This has the psychological impact of doubling the excitement, stimulation and incitement to copycat acts. The increase in rapes can be attributed, in large part, to the playing out of such scenes in video games”
This argument will go on forever, but common now, increase in rapes attributed by playing certain video games? There’s always a psychologist who believes they have the key to unlocking the mysteries of violent behaviors in society, which of course all correlates to violent video games. It’s either that, or they want to have some short term celebrity with their dumb comments. With this all in mind I decided to at least feature a nice rare collectible from Bulletstorm 😆 .
Seller robertpaulson has put a Bulletstorm Nutcracker on eBay. These nutcrackers were given away to media and reviewers directly from Epic Games which means they were not available to the public. The nutcracker comes in a decorated box displaying how to perform the “nutcracker” in-game. Great collectible!
