They better not pull a Far Cry 2 and stick Bioshock onto an unrelated game.

I wouldn't say unrelated.

Got nothing to do with Rapture though. It has plasmids and Daddie's though.

Edit: Good week for gaming. BioShock, Batman, QuakeCon tomorrow with Rage, D4 and probably something else. GamesCom soon as well.

Half-Life 3 will make me a happier person though.

Bioshock did not need its first sequel. It certainly doesn't need a second.

Well, the second one wasn't made by Levine and co but this one is. Plus its an entirely new concept.

The more I think of it, the more I want it.

The 2nd wasn't the power of the people, it was the belief in an external higher power rather than the self, initially Lamb, then Lambs own belief in the deity she was trying to make.

Yes but it was more her belief in the collective mind, she wanted to make her daughter have the minds of every one in rapture so that she was the embodiment of the people, the first true utopian

Yes, but that's because she didn't think individuals could make rational/healthy choices without a guiding external force compelling them too (Fear of God, big government etc). She didn't even believe in her own self, hence the need to create this power that would make the right choices for everyone in society. That being the opposite of the first, in which Ryan created a place where the individual had all the power, rather than an state.

Or at least, that's my take on it.

My initial reaction was "Bioshock in the sky, eh? Nonsense!", but it sounds more interesting after reading that. Different atmosphere, less emphasis on plasmids... but I think it should be called "Chronicles of Bioshock: Infinity" ¬_¬

p.s. It explains why the city's called Columbia, but will they have to change that name when you get lines like "A group of Columbians chased DeWitt down the street, firing at him"?

Ken Levine explaining why they have gone with another Bioshock game.

http://irrationalgames.com/insider/anno ... en-levine/

Personally I'm a big fan of the Bioshock series so I am not unhappy to see Irrational continue the franchise. They look like they are making enough changes to differentiate it from the first game. In modern gaming where it is so hard to make a new ip successful they have been sensible. Plus with the track record of this team I wouldn't bet against them.

EDIT: Interesting reaction to this game. Strange how Irrational are getting a fair bit of stick for not making an original IP. Bungie churn out game after game based on the Halo franchise and people lap it up, same for Square Enix and Final Fantasy and Infinite Ward and CoD. Irrational decide to make another Bioshock game, but totally change the setting and feel and they get criticised for it. I really do despair of gamers sometimes.

It's nothing like that at all. It's a third game in the series developed by the same development studio. Far Cry 2 was developed by a different development studio after some kerfuffle of the rights to the name 'Far Cry'.

It's just so different that I can't see how it's got anything to do with Bioshock beyond the name. It does look good, but it'd be nice for a sequel to carry on a story. I suppose I'll just have to start thinking of Bioshock as a world instead of a story.
