BioShock is getting a collection, according to the Brazilian advisory board. 1) Can I just bought the original game in HD? No, that isn’t a “collection” — oh, okay. 2) When the fuck are we getting an HD Mass Effect collection? Christ.
After BioShock Infinite, Ken Levine announced that he was taking his talents (and his studio) in a different direction. And while it’s probably too early to judge, I’m going to anyways! Levine’s company is hiring for a “narrative first-person shooter”, which. You know. Sounds a lot like BioShock. IDFK?
Maybe. This is a definite *maybe* not a certain *true*, but it looks like BioShock may be getting a next-gen collection. Which I will buy. For BioShock only. That’s enough for me to enjoy. The other two can pound-sand-and-eat-grass.
Ken Levine. I don’t know how I feel about him, other than intrigued. The dude got way too much credit for the collaborative journey that was BioShock, but fuck I love that game. Then Levine and his crew churned out BioShock Infinite, which was more THIS IS A DEEP GAME than actually being a deep game. But he’s clearly something of an “auteur” if they exist (anywhere), and so I’m sweating his (group’s) next effort.
It’s Friday. Leave my headlines alone. Go one, git! And leave your soda cans on the lawn on your way out. Each one of those fuckers is worth five cents and I’ve got a caffeine addiction to support.
I…I still don’t know what the fuck happened in BioShock Infinite, let alone the first episode of Burial At Sea. Oh for the love of Christ put down the pie charts, the Excel spreadsheets, and your timeline. If you need to resort to that nonsense, the plot is fucked. Anyways, even with that said I’m opening up my fanboy gaping maw for Burial At Sea’s second episode. Why? Cause I’m a sucker. But most importantly? I bought the season pass ahead of time like an asshole.
I can’t tell if this is the greatest thing ever, or fanboy fan service of the inexcusable kind. The war between the tingling parts of my mind, and the “there something just not right” parts are throwing atomic elbows at one another as I type this.
Who am I kidding.
I’m fucking stoked.
I want to make a lot of witty comments about the possibility that BioShock Infinite DLC may feature a new companion character. However, two problems arise. First, I’m not really witty. Second, anything I can come up with is quasi-spoilerish and I ain’t going that route.
Without question, Bioshock Infinite has proven itself as incredibly troubling to the novice reviewer (played by myself). It’s not that the game is overwhelmingly challenging, or so perfect that I find it difficult to find fault and give a balanced account, but more that every element has been considered and given such attention: making just about everything worthy of mentioning. It’s an overwhelming game to process, but I’m going to try for you, though, because I fucking adore you. Seriously, you don’t even know.
