BioShock

The animation of BioShock was beautiful. Compared to some of the other games I’ve seen, it is almost movie quality. If it was, in fact, a movie instead of a video game, it would be Pixar’s first R rated film.

In the first BioShock, I felt the claustrophobic nature of Rapture. Yeah, it’s a big city, but it’s still underwater. One of the windows breaks and it’s “sayonara in two micro-seconds“.

Bioshock Wedding

A Toronto couple recently celebrated their nuptials in Bioshock style. They played period music, designed pseudo-deco programs, and had rather an awesome cupcake tower in lieu of a cake, which featured a big daddy, little sister, and edible blue morpho butterflies.

Bioshock Demo to Hit PSN Oct 2nd

The title says it all! The BioShock demo is scheduled to go live worldwide on the PLAYSTATION Network on October 2nd. That’s less than one month until you get your first taste of Rapture on the PS3.

Enjoy!

That’s very welcome news! I’m interested in getting Bioshock but it will depend on just how good it is on the PS3 and making a playable demo available on the PSN is a good move.

I will be in NYC then though (well I’m supposed to be) so I’ll have to download it when I get back to the UK the following Monday.

From what I’ve seen so far it’s looking good:
