Mike Capps, president of Epic Games has told Kotaku that Bulletstorm for PC will make the system “weep if you play it in 3D, full screen, full resolution.”

According to Capps, the game is “gorgeous,” and he is “really proud of it.”

When asked what he thought of comparisons between Bulletstorm and Duke Nukem Forever, he said they are both great because there seems to be “a little too much serious in games,” now and days.

“They are both over the top shooters,” he said. “It’s funny, before Duke came back to life and Randy (Pitchford) and his guys were able to make it work, we were sort of thinking of Bulletstorm as somewhat of a spiritual successor.

“But it’s a very different game, it is much more story-based, there are no pig aliens or whatever. No John St. John. We were really glad when they were no longer shipping right on top of us, because I think there is a similar segment that is going to want to play both of those games. It’s a fun, pure, have-a-blast shooter game, which I think we need more of right now.

“There’s a little too much serious in games.”

Bulletstorm releases next week on Tuesday in the US and Friday in the UK for PS3, 360 and PC.
