  2. Player Piano’s On The Spot Series Continues To Wow Us With Video Game Arrangements

    As part of their recent Indiegogo campaign to raise money for Player Piano's more ambitious videos, Tom Grey asked musical genius Sonya Belousova to recreate songs from Halo, Final Fantasy VII, Chrono Chross, Skyrim, and more after hearing them from the first time. Holy cow, does she nail them. It's like Aeris is dying all over again, but... like, in a really happy way?

  3. BioShock for iOS Will Deliver the One-Two Punch on iPhone and iPad

    Would you kindly release iPhones with bigger screens, Apple?

    Last week, BioShock publisher 2k Games' UK arm teased something for the original BioShock with the image above, and it turns out that the image's "apple" theme was intentional: The original BioShock is coming to iOS.

  5. Review: BioShock Infinite‘s Burial At Sea DLC

    Review

    The story opens with Booker DeWitt, passed out at his desk. Empty bottles and betting sheets lie in plain sight. A woman enters his office. He does not know her. The player can see that she knows him. She offers him a job, with little room for refusal. There’s a missing girl that needs to be found. And so it begins. Again. Warning: Massive ending spoilers for BioShock Infinite. Minor spoilers for Burial At Sea.

  6. Irrational Games Is Shutting Down To Be Replaced By New “Start-Up” Studio

    Well, now we know where Levine got the idea for Andrew Ryan.

    Sad news for Bioshock fans today: according to a statement on the Irrational Games website, Ken Levine will be shutting down the studio and laying off all but 15 people for a new, " more entrepreneurial endeavor " with Take-Two instead. So, you know, guess it's also sad for Irrational Games employees who liked having some semblance of job security.

  8. Facebook Group Mistakes BioShock Infinite Satire Image for Real Propaganda

    There is not enough time in the day for all of the facepalms this inspires.

    Poe's Law is an Internet phenomenon in which reality and satire become indistinguishable from each other. In a prime example, a conservative Facebook group seemingly became unable to distinguish the outlandish political satire of the BioShock series from their own beliefs, and they posted an in-game propaganda image to their page.

  9. A Coward’s Search For The Perfect Halloween Game

    Fear is the Mind Killer

    Ah, Halloween! My favorite holiday! Not a likely favorite for a confessed scaredy-cat like myself, but October 31 is the one day of the year in which I embrace the dark and creepy. I’ve spent the past two and a half years living in a Halloween-less country, but this year, I’m in luck. I’m stateside for several weeks, serendipitously here in time for pumpkin carving and costume making. I’m feeling celebratory, and what better way to get in the mood than by playing a spooky game? But what to play? That’s a tough question. Join me now as I peruse my Steam library, in search of the perfect Halloween game.

  11. Gone Home Is The Story Exploration Game You’ve Been Waiting For

    Review

    It’s just a house. That’s all the game is, a house full of receipts and cups and boxes of tissues. Mundane and ordinary. You can walk around the house. You can pick things up, turn them over. You can paw around drawers and cupboards. You are alone. You are unguided. You can take all the time you need. There’s a lot to uncover in Gone Home, the inaugural title by indie studio The Fullbright Company. Love, loneliness, secrets, desperation, sexual identity, growing up, acting out — it’s all there, hidden under beds and shoved into closets. I saw my childhood in there, and my adulthood, too, and the messy, complicated things I feel toward my family. It left me feeling raw, and clean, and quiet. It’s just a house. It made me cry.

  12. Surprise! First Bioshock Infinite DLC Launched Today, Second One Set in Rapture on the Way

    Somewhere, beyond the sea...

    The first DLC for Bioshock Infinite is now available! Clash in the Clouds isn't a continuation of the story as much as a glorified battle arena, but that's fine. The next DLC for the game, Burial at Sea, will have Booker and Elizabeth travel to the setting of the first two BioShock games, Rapture.

  16. What You Bring With You: A Review of BioShock Infinite

    Review

    The BioShock games, says creative director Ken Levine, are a Rorschach test. What you see will depend on who you are and what you believe. There are no right answers. When I look at BioShock Infinite, I see three things. I see a masterpiece of video game storytelling. I see a woman who needs rescuing, and who challenges my expectations of what that means. And I see a risky, disturbing exploration of American racism, which led me to acknowledge how ill-equipped I am to say anything on that front at all. I don't know how to write about BioShock Infinite. The first two things, yes, I can muddle about those just fine. The third, however, is not a matter I have ever written on, and I doubt that I am the right person for the job. But to leave that aspect out of any discussion of this game would be missing the point entirely. If there’s one thing I've learned from BioShock Infinite, it’s that trying to avoid mistakes never ends well. So here goes. (Minor spoilers ahead.)

  17. BioShock Infinite Gameplay Trailer Warns Against Drinking Random Liquids

    Bloody Good Fun

    The last two "trailers" we had for BioShock Infinite were more like something you might see from the Dharma Initiative. While they are seriously cool, and I hope to see more, it's nice to see we've finally got a gameplay trailer. Anticipating this one?

  18. New BioShock Infinite Trailer Absolutely Teems With Steampunky Action

    The release date for BioShock Infinite is fast approaching, and to make sure everyone knows it and is super pumped about it, the creators of the game just dropped a shiny new trailer. Besides the obvious goal of showing how beautiful this game is, the Lamb of Columbia trailer also seems to ask the question, "What would Belle from Beauty and the Beast do if she got super powers?"

  20. There’s No BioShock Infinite Gameplay In This Trailer And We Don’t Care

    Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

    Trailers don't always need to be obvious to be effective. For instance, everyone I've talked to about this new BioShock Infinite trailer has said how impressed they were with it and how excited they now are for the game. Granted, most were excited before the trailer (and have been waiting a looooooong time for it to come out) but a little creativity goes a long way.
