Toys R Us broke the release date. Some of them already have them in stock, but mostly midwest and east coast. West coast no go yet.

Yeah, we almost played it through in co-op some years ago, it was a bit buggy but great fun still. Excellent game together with the first one - which is probably why I'm concerned about this new Bioshock.
It looks too "dumbed down" from what the old SS games were. It looks really more like a generic FPS as there's no inventory or anything like that. The free Bioshock artbook didn't really inspire confidence either - then again, there's plenty of ok games with poor concept art.
I'm not a huge FPS fan anymore, they were fun in the good old days of Quake, but now... meh, not for me. I might give this one a go, despite how FPSish it looks but I'll have to wait for the PC demo first.

Yeah, it's pretty much a dumbed down FPS. It's all about the atmosphere and story instead. I wouldn't really consider it a sequel of any kind or even related. But Bioshock is not a tactical shooter. It's more like Condemned, just a better story and better looking. Controls and fighting scheme is just as limited and wonky, though.

The concept art is pretty decent. It's just not as polished as some. They focused more on lighting than anything else. In fact the concept art has me interested in possibly buying this game.

My god, it's beautiful. I've spent a ton of time so far on the medical lab level, lots of stuff to explore (and you could basically call this just the first "real" level, beyond the training stuff).

So, a big part of what makes this awesome is lots of hidden areas, and lots to explore. It's very tense when you know that several enemies are around the corner where you need to go, and trying to find the best way to defeat them and conserve resources.

Fighting my first big daddy right now. I just lost miserably, must find a better tactic.

Beat you to it.

Too bad it's not as awesome as SS2 was!

Still fun...

I played the demo on my 360 last night. It was short, but very very sweet. Now I'm just waiting on bioshock to finish downloading (from steam) to my PC so I can play this game...it's taking too long!

I just bought a copy after playing a demo on my pc. I was kinda skeptical as my system's a little outdated (P4, 3.3ghz, 1.5g ram, running 6800GT), but so far so good. I'm likin' what I'm seein'.

Gonna hole up in my living room, turn the volume way up, and probably put in 5 hours or so tonight. I can't wait.

Anyone else finding Hard to be impossibly difficult when facing a Big Daddy? Got tired of it after killing the 4th one and moved back to Normal.
post #44 of 60
Its difficult enough on normal, I have no interest on trying it on hard.

There seems to be no strategy to it, other than dump tons of ammo on it, hide behind something if you can, and plan on using most of your health kits.

Be sure to upgrade your Electro. It's pretty much, shoot, stun, run, shoot, stun, run, shoot, stun, run...
