I get supremely bored with FPS because most of them are dumb alien/zombie shoot'em ups for mouthbreathers and are so supremely and insultingly dumb. However, I loved the original BioShock because of the understated Art Deco design and the post Randian /Objectivist world gone wrong was so smart and cool.

Gatlin Gun George Washington? Fark me, they've gone full Idiocracy.

That is too cool.

Was not interested before. Am very interested now.

Dunno. I think the promo video oversells it just a bit, but it does sound like fun.

So they're making a big deal about this enemy that has a lot of health and AI from ten years ago?

I hope the fact that they say you can't reason with this enemy means you can with others, but I'm not counting on it.

I'm just pleased that this game has "1999 Mode" that alters the gameplay and makes the game more challenging

And seeing as 1999 was year System Shock 2 was released, and that since they don't own the rights, they can't *call* it System Shock 2 mode...

You're acting like the most popular enemy from the first game isn't a pissed off diving suit with a big ass drill for a hand...

Question for the Farkers who've played it: is BioShock 2 worth my time? I loved everything about the first game, but for some reason never got around to part 2. It looked almost like a retread, I guess.

Well, it is a retread. Weaker plot and you play as a big daddy. The multi-player was surprisingly good if you can still find people to play with. Frankly, you can probably pick it up for less than $10 and at that price, it's a no brainer.

It was okay. I was dismayed at how lifeless and shiatty the background and environment was. I looked out a window and could count the pixels on a flat blue plane with a couple of static jellyfish. Later there was a dramatic scene in a children's museum where all the exhibits were 2d, lifeless pieces of cardboard.

What disappointed me about 2 (and 1, for that matter) was the low variety of enemies. They expanded somewhat in 2 more than 1, but the variety just wasn't there. They even supplement the lack of diversity by discontinuing some enemies. The melee ones disappear quickly, and there were not very many spiders/houdinis. I'm not a big FPS player and played BS1 mostly for the story and picked up both for $10 or less apiece so I think I got my money's worth and then some. I wasn't interested in the multiplayer and felt a little let down by the campaign in 2.

You were still always just running around shooting crazy people in the face. I'll be impressed when someone can figure out how to make a story driven FPS not based around killing people. And have it not seem lame like every attempt at that so far.

If you want to play it on the PC (and it's an FPS, so of course you do) you'll have to have a Games for Windows Live (GFWL) account to even save the motherfarking game.

Bought it on Steam, it told me this was the case when I started it up, couldn't believe it, played it long enough to verify that it was, then turned it off. It seemed pretty shiatty anyway, and that's not just sour grapes.

I'm glad I barely liked the first one, or I might have paid more than the $3-4 I paid for the second. At least I'm not out much money. Oh well, I've got like 60 games on there I haven't played yet thanks to package deals and Steam codes from the Humble Indie Bundle over the last couple years, so it's not like I don't have other things to play.

Not an easy task for one man who can't code. I also don't know how it could be done without ending up like Hard Rain, but I do think about it sometimes. Dear Esther is a valiant effort. I think it's just a genre that's just been too trapped by the tropes of Point and Click adventure games but I think we'll see a successful mainstream title pull it off soon.

That is if people can go five minutes with shooting something and not get bored.

I'm aware that this is heresy to many, but this is one reason I prefer playing a lot of games on my xbox instead of my PC. Mass Effect 3? Just pop that baby in and I'm good to go, no origin, no pain in the ass DRM.

I had a great time with Bioshock 2. Like the original, there were a lot of great ways to dispatch your enemies, allowing creative combos - but they got even better in this one since you could wield a gun and a plasmid at the same time. Really once you've set your enemy on fire, riddled them with bullets and finished them off with a giant farking drill there's not much that can compare.

Also there's a Big Sister fight toward the end that was one of the craziest, most difficult and satisfying battles I've ever experienced in a game. I beat it on the first try but when it was done I had just a sliver of health and no more first aid kits, so it was pretty awesome.

Other than the story not being quite as original as the first Bioshock, there's no reason not to play 2 if you didn't like 1. And has been mentioned, right now you can get it super cheap.

Heavy Rain. Also LA Noire, although you occasionally do shoot people in it. Both excellent games.
