Here's something refreshing, an FPS that's only on the PC by people who are devoted PC gamers and developers. Hard Reset is also unique in that it was only announced a couple of months ago, and confirmed its global launch for September release. That's a very fast turnaround, which is very rare in gaming. Usually we have to sit at home waiting for anticipated games months upon months if not years! Hard Reset is made by Flying Wild Hog, a team related to People Can Fly, which if you recall were responsible for Bulletstorm (NOT a PC exclusive, alas). It's a cyberpunk first person shooter set in a semi-post apocalyptic 25th century world in which humanity is barely holding on and is engaged in a fight against maniacal machines. Sounds cool. What's cooler is that the look and feel of the game are explicitly inspired by the beloved Blade Runner, with a rain-swept, neon-lit grungy world to explore and shoot up. Plus, have we mentioned it's only on PC? For the curious, here are the system requirements, as provided by Flying Wild Hog:

Hard Reset is out Sept 13 (available on Steam, Direct2Drive and other online retailers), and we're really looking forward to it as it sounds like a truly PC-optimized shooter. Bout time the old platform got its share of dedicated lovin!
