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…
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.
"It's chess meets Hamlet. Okay, maybe not Hamlet. But it's a start." Ken Levine, of BioShock and System Shock 2 fame, wrote an interesting review of Shadow of Mordor this week in which he praises its novel ability to tell stories that players "build for themselves simply by playing the game." Read it over at Matter.
Submerged is an exploration adventure from ex-BioShock devs that takes place in the technology-spattered ruins of a place that's seen better (and less water-logged) days. If you ask me, though, it looks almost... pleasant? Don't know about you, but I'd hang out there.
When first signs of life appeared for The Black Glove, it quickly became clear that the former BioShock devs working on the first-person game wanted it to be a bit bizarre. So, their homage to old-school arcade games won't just be a fun, nostalgic mini-game. Those creatures are going to break through into the…
We've all heard the story many times now: talented game developers leave their corporate jobs to strike out on their own, turning to Kickstarter in the process. So what makes The Flame in the Flood stand out? Something about BioShock's art director making a modern fancified version of The Oregon Trail, if you ask me.
The Black Glove, which is being made by ex-BioShock devs, looks like BioShock's zanier child, but it certainly doesn't play anything like it. For one, no guns. For two, space minotaurs. Three, it's about a surreal trans-dimensional 1920s theater. It sounds really, really cool. And super weird.
When you look at Booker DeWitt - star of BioShock Infinite - on the cover of the game, you see a rugged man of action who won't take no guff from nobody. When you look at his face on this new action figure, you see something else.
