Can you imagine Bulletstorm's Grayson Hunt starring in a stifling educational video on how to earn points in the game? No? You're right, he'd probably lash together the cameraman and his camera with the flail gun in a fit of entropic glee.
• Bulletstorm is rife with stylish methods to dispatch your enemies. Here are three of them. A moment of silence for the mindless cannon fodder who gave up their lives for this effective demonstration.
Continue after the break for gameplay footage of Final Fantasy Versus 13's modern setting, a severe distaste for sharpshooters in SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs, and the theatrical entrance of the Marine Corps in Operation Flashpoint: Red River.
• This cinematic cut-scene for Final Fantasy Versus 13 is nothing short of breathtaking — indicative of Square Enix's painstaking attention to detail. Strangely enough, Noctis' perpetually disinterested expression belies his combat prowess. Must be the expensive-looking clothes.
• SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs promotes teamwork, camaraderie, and efficient communication — unless you're a sniper. Then everyone hates you and will gladly riddle your corpse full of bullets.
• The Marines roll into action against an insurgent militia in Operation Flashpoint: Red River. This game is a severely realistic tactical shooter, so expect bullet dynamics, inclement weather, and lots of standing around doing nothing. [GameTrailers]
