Game Review: ‘Bioshock 2’ Xbox 360
  |  @   |  

Bioshock 2
Platform: Xbox 360
Developer: 2K Games
Publisher: 2K Games
Release Date: February 9, 2010

The opening of 2007’s Bioshock is one of the best — if not THE best — introductions to a video game we’ve ever seen. Crashing into the ocean, swimming to a mysterious nearby lighthouse, progressing cautiously as you put yourself into the game and wonder where you are. And then, to have your mini-adventure into the city of Rapture viciously halted by the cruel realization that you are not in a friendly place…it was all just so amazing and unforgettable, and there was still twenty great hours of gameplay to come!

The first game was so good that many fans felt that a Bioshock 2 was completely unnecessary, but we were told that one was on the way nevertheless. For me personally, this was fantastic news, and I’ve been excited and anxiously awaiting its arrival. See, when it comes to video games, they’re a platform of entertainment that is perfect for sequels. Yes, a second, third, or fourth game may not be as good as that original, but that doesn’t matter here; games all have to be their own creature. Whether you love or hate Bioshock 2, the original will still always be there to play; but if you love it, then that’s all the more time you get to hang out in that crazy world of Rapture. For me personally, I loved my second visit to the city hidden under the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, and I hope that I get to go there many more times in the future.

World Of ‘BioShock’ Brought To Life In Very Cool Photo Shoot
  |  @   |  

The feature film adaptation of instant classic video game BioShock has been in and out of the news multiple times with the hiring of Gore Verbinski to direct, and then followed by his unfortunate departure and the announcement that Juan Carlos Fresnadillo would be taking his place.

Until we finally get to see what amazing or abominable paths they take with that live-action movie, we could once only imagine what a living and breathing Rapture might look like. Well, thankfully there’s some pretty talented artists out there on our planet and one of them, named Harrison Krix, has done a damn fine job in helping to show us this real BioShock. Krix and his Volpin Props (Head here to see a bunch of amazingly detailed props) created a fantastic replication of a Big Daddy, added a Little Sister, and brought them to Dragon*Con. While that was all well and fun, it wasn’t enough, and they went ahead and set up an arrangement to shoot some photographs with Dim Horizons at the Georgia Aquarium. Once they were finally able to get in for the shoot, the result was a very cool set of images of the Big Daddy and Little Sister in a tunnel surrounded by water and ocean life resembling the dark world of Rapture.

Click over to the other side to take a peek at some of these BioShock photographs. You can head over to the respective sites for more images. Also added below is a video from Dragon*Con where you can see the Big Daddy’s drill in action.
