Playing through Bioshock again, since I haven't played through it since I installed it on my computer. My brother-in-law let me borrow his 360, and my computer ran Bioshock a little sluggish. I'm really enjoying the added fluidity the X-Box affords, and I had forgotten to not play it at night. Guess I'm too much of a pansy. Just got back into the Medical Pavilion (after my previous save got corrupted and I had to start over). I was hoping to rent Bioshock 2 soon-ish, but I don't know how long I'm going to have the X-Box.
Anyone played the second one? How is it?
I thought it was on par. A lot of people don't like how it's different from the second one, but the character roles changed. It went from plane wreck survivor, to the first big daddy, of course the story would be different.
I loved it, the multiplayer has some problems.
I finally got to play the Multiplayer when I went to my sister's place (with decent internet), and I had a blast. I played as that fat guy. I sucked out a lot, but it was my first time playing.
What were the problems with the Multiplayer? I mean, it's a good possibility I just didn't notice over the sound of my own failure.
Big bump here just to add I finally beat the first Bioshock, and I have to say - what a game! Easily the most unique "shooter" I've ever played, though I'm not a huge console gamer.
The whole art deco look is beautifully designed and looks fantastic. The plot has bits and pieces that feel like an Ayn Rand novel - including a character named Atlas. The whole plasmid and various powerups were interesting, although I only ever opened up or used six plasmid slots. Still, the seeing the telekinesis work was pretty slick.
Creepy, gorgeous and quite a bit of fun. The same guy who loaned me the first one also loaned me the second one (many moons ago). May take that up here after a little break.
Well anyway, hi there, folks. You know, I'd been having trouble with velvet leaf, uh, cutworm and, uh, foxtail and, well, that's when the representative from Monsanto came out to my farm. He recommended a pre-emergent, inferral mixture of Lorsban with Atrazine in a tank mix and I told him to get off my land. - Farmer Joel

Bioshock: Infinite is slated to come out this year. And it looks great.
Set in the floating city of Columbia in 1912, you play as non-silent protagonist Booker DeWitt as he goes off to rescue the powerful Elizabeth from her jailor, the mysterious and terrifying Songbird. From what I've seen, this has no connection to the Bioshock universe of Andrew Ryan. Probably for the best, as Bioshock 2 was set in 1968, and Rapture was basically falling apart by then.
It really looks like an amazing game. Probably not with the same tone as the earlier ones, but still, amazing.
