We recently played a bit of the upcoming BioShock collection: all three BioShocks, all the DLC, everything but BioShock 2's multiplayer. No gameplay tweaks; just graphical polish so that it looks as good as it looks in your memories (see above). Out Sept. 13 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
We Happy Few is a survival game set in an alternate 1960s Britain. Citizens of Wellington Wells take a drug called Joy to forget, to function. The game wears its BioShock influences on its puke-encrusted sleeve, but in its current state, it’s still got a ways to go before it can live up to its lofty potential.
The BioShock Collection is on the way, promising to return us to Rapture and Columbia. But what about System Shock? It’s been over twenty years since we first met SHODAN and battled through Citadel Station. Night Dive Studios has taken up the cause of remastering the PC classic, but do they remember what made it so…
UPDATE - 6/30, 8:04am: It’s official: BioShock Collection is coming out September 13 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It’ll include BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite, although the latter game won’t be remastered on PC.
BioShock came out nearly nine years ago and used Unreal Engine 2.5, so it’s no wonder the Unreal Engine 4 project it inspired looks so sharp.
BioShock director Ken Levine is working on an “interactive live-action film based on Twilight Zone,” writes Wired. Levine’s partnered with media company Interlude for the project, whose technology will “allow viewers to determine what the characters do” in the film.
If you played BioShock, you remember the opening level of the game. Who could forget it?
Redditor Badwxlf made a BioShock cake for a friend, even doing some research before baking it—by grabbing the three games during the Steam Summer sale and taking screenshots while playing. It has a Big Daddy and a Gatherer’s Garden vendor made out of Rice Krispies, so it’s probably delicious. More photos below.
On the most recent episode of Shall We Play a Game?, my podcast with former NPR producer and correspondent JJ Sutherland, we review The Magic Circle, a game with a whole lot of BioShock alums in the credits: The Magic Circle’s lead designer, Jordan Thomas, was the creative director of BioShock 2, and he also led the…
We get it, Booker and Elizabeth are cool characters with neat outfits. But not every cosplay from BioShock Infinite needs to be of the two main characters
On today’s Highlight Reel we have heists, easy Bioshock splicers, canons, unconventional knock downs, exploding Diablo creatures and much more!
The Black Glove, a surreal indie game being made by former BioShock developers, has been shelved indefinitely. Developer Night Games explained in its announcement that they were unable to find a good publisher following the game’s unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign. Bummer! It looked like a very promising game.
Most people played through the first BioShock and probably didn’t hear anything familiar while ending their way through Rapture. But one reader’s sharp ears caught a sequence that sounds remarkably like one from the soundtrack of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Would you kindly listen and see what you think?
We all know the Circus of Values clown. We've all bought ammo, EVE hypos and health kits "from him" dozens of times. But did you know that he originally sold melons?
Last month master pianist/composer Sonya Belousova charmed us with on the spot arrangements of classic Nintendo themes, many of which she had only just heard for the first time. I was hesitant to post her follow-up, but then I heard her version of "The Scars of Time" from Chrono Cross.
In case you forgot, Valve's Source Filmmaker is an extremely powerful tool for turning games into movies. Sometimes we get things like the fantastic Team Fortress 2 End of the Line short. Other times we get sheer, unbridled madness. These videos starring BioShock's Booker DeWitt are the latter.
Why there isn't an official line of Rapture-inspired fish tanks already is beyond me. Until 2K gets their act together, Super Fan Builds' custom BioShock aquarium shall have to do. No Gods or Kings... only Fish.
