The next 48 hours are a great time to stock up on games for your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. EA Games is running a 99¢ sale on select games in the App store. They are calling this the "i ♥ 99¢ SALE!", so if you are looking for some cheap thrills for Valentines day, this may be the place to go.
Bulletstorm is one of those rare titles that, even if you see all the videos and read all the reviews on it, you still need to actually play it to get a sense of what the game is about, and why it's so unique in its place amongst all of the other First Person Shooter (FPS) titles out there. From developer People Can Fly and published by EA Games, Bulletstorm is a shooter that mixes in over-the-top action, along with plenty of creative combinations that players can use to score points.
So you're thinking about firing some bullets and you want to fire a LOT of them at a LOT of people as fast as possible in a game where you massacre basically all day long, right?

How does buying one iffy game sound if you also get a massively popular game's early access to Beta gameplay with it? That's what's happening right now - if you purchase the new "Epic Edition" of the game Bulletstorm, (for Xbox 360,) you'll be granted early access to Gears of War 3 beta.
