BioShock

Released on October 17, 2008 by 2K Games

Developed by Irrational Games / 2K Marin

BioShock is a shooter unlike any you've ever played, loaded with weapons and tactics never seen. You'll have a complete arsenal at your disposal from simple revolvers to grenade launchers and chemical throwers, but you'll also be forced to genetically modify your DNA to create an even more deadly

If you somehow missed BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite they are all coming out soon in one remastered collection featuring some really impressive looking graphical updates you can see featured in the video embedded above. The trailer focuses more on the graphical updates to the original BioShock as I imagine there are few changes they made, if any, to BioShock Infinite.

As 2K mentioned before if you own any of the aforementioned games you will be able to upgrade on Steam for free on September 13th.

I've not played BioShock (I know, I know), but still greatly enjoyed, and was greatly creeped out by, this parody of Under The Sea from the Little Mermaid.

It seems the apple in this teaser that was released recently is Apple Inc. as the news is out today that Bioshock is coming to iOS. Get it, BiOShock? Hahahahaha I'm a riot.

The original Bioshock finds a new home on newer iPads and iPhones. Touch controls replace the familiar keyboard and mouse or controller schemes of old. Destructoid found them capable until you get into combat situations, where the weakness of the touch controls shows itself. It does have compatibility with the various controllers released for iOS devices, so if you have one of those, you're all set.

My first impression after playing BioShock demo back in 2007? It's time for a hardware upgrade. I was well disappointed, as from what I could see during the slideshow my PC was serving me, it was obvious I *should* play BioShock.

By the time I finally managed to get my hands on first Bioshock, the hype surrounding it's release was long over and I could play through the game without too many preconceptions. I'm glad about it because this game is not perfect. It certainly wouldn't get a place in my personal TOP 10 (my gaming experience started in the 80s, so I guess it doesn't mean much). Sure, BioShock has a combat system that allows so much creativity, a... Read All

Bioshock Infinite Contest:

A creative writing on Bioshock, and the shock to my bioness thereof:

Atlas may have shrugged,
But in Rapture I did not.
contest haiku-win?

... or not?

In all seriousness - my BS1 experience was largely on my old roommate's X360. It reminded me why I play games and what an FPS can be. Admittedly I struggled to get past the first hour or so - but that isn't uncommon for me as a gamer (I just restarted it on PC again and I have the same issue). It thankfully sparked my reentry into the gaming world outside of MMOs - first to console then back to PC. I've largely discredited the FPS genre in my time, and as such it's been a long journey for... Read All

A philosophical text wrapped in a survival horror game. There's something that makes the game even scarier than all the shadows and jumps, and that's the dystopian atmosphere. You really feel like this was a place whose bright ideals became corrupted and ultimately self destructive. Truly a masterpiece of game design.

Bioshock. A game which has questioned one thing in us: Are video games can be a piece of art? Yes, they can be. Bioshock's mood is very unique. Mostly it's pretty scary and sad, giving the real feeling that everyone in Rapture is crazy, and the whole city is anarchic. The little dialogues between the splicers and the music of the 1960's are giving a very great retro feeling. And the story. Yes, the story, which makes the game the most interesting. A separated, much different world which has fallen by the real world...it has a very educating society critic, symbolizing with the foundable audio tapes, and the caracters, and the technology of Rapture. The... Read All

Bioshock Review

Bioshock was a game of twists and turns, sighs and sorrows, Plasmids and profoundness. One of the things that makes literature breath-taking is the plot line(yes, I consider video games to be literature.) You just have this lingering curiosity inside you, wanting to know more about Rapture and it's past.

As you first descend down that pod found inside the lighthouse, you get your first glimpse of Rapture, a beautiful place with majestic undersea singing whales, shining buildings! You gasp under your breath, realizing that you would soon venture into this profound place! But, as the pod comes to a stop, you come to... Read All

Bioshock is an amazing game. Right from the start I was taken into this amazing (although creepy) world, that held me til the very end, and even long after I completed the game! The characters are unique and a little insane, but that's what makes Bioshock such an interesting play! The game mechanics are great, the plot is excellent, and the environments are so detailed and amazing. After finishing the game for the first time I found myself quite upset that it had to end! But then I played it again (and I would gladly play it a third, fourth and even fifth time - not many games that I can say that about!)

Overall Bioshock is a great play, as is Bioshock 2 and... Read All

Bioshock 1 probably one of the best FPS ever grace current generation and I'm not trying to exaggerate the praise for this game. I remember playing this game in class with my friends watching, fortunately I wasn't get caught playing in the middle of a lesson. Honestly, I've beat the game on the pirated version and then bought the game 2 years later just because it's just THAT good (back then, I didn't even know about steam). Hell, I've even promoted this game to my friends, even bought one of my friend a copy of this game just for the sake of it.
One thing that I like from the first Bioshock is the moral system and the little sisters. The fight with big... Read All

BioShock is one of those games that builds a world you feel immersed in from the start. Playing the game I really got into the character and mood of the game and it was very creepy. As far as the start to a game goes, BioShock does it better than most ive experienced. I started with the PS3 demo and then was given the full meal deal from a friend on my cake day.

100% full disclosure, ive never completed it. I haven't completed it because I can only play it in 10-20 minute increments. The game looks fantastic, has a interesting plot device and the game mechanics are good its just that ... I don't want to exist in that world doing that stuff very long. I find... Read All
