Ironic, they're finally doing a historical location time period I have actual personal attachment to and yet all I can think is why not somewhere else, like say Egypt, Russia, China, Japan. Any of those four locations would be amazing.

It's kind of telling that the state of the entire big budget industry right now seems to be "ship it before its done fix it later". That kind of thing has existed since the internet age began but wow has it gotten so so much worse in recent years.

That was an awesomely well written thing there Jeff, agree with everything. My thoughts on the whole matter are pretty lengthy so I think I'm personally gonna type up my own blog post, if only for my own well being.

The thing missing from that video is the camera pointed at the audience. I want to see their faces. I want to watch the old guy who has gone to every single Letterman show realize what he is seeing and go insane from the revelation. Or just become very, very confused and distraught. I want to see that.

Also yeah, that was terrible synthetic English. They should really work on that before doing this again.

This, I wanted a crowd cam so bad. I'm a life long anime fan and I still get confused about the whole Miku thing. If she were an actual AI and "miku" were "her" physical self projection that'd be cool in a Macross Plus kind of way but she's literally just a pre recorded cgi animation with some horrible autotune music playing.

Not a remake Patrick. Dear press, please stop calling ports remakes all the time. This is a port with some minor polish applied.

A port is when a game is taken from one platform to another with almost no changes whatsoever beyond resolution. That's not what this is. They're adding control options, screen ratio options (which means rendering more on screen than was previously possible) and updating the graphics which means using higher resolution versions of the background renders and higher poly higher res versions of the character and prop models. So no not a simple port, quite an extensive update actually.

Be interesting and fun looking? so far it still just looks like a bland version of Borderlands to me.

I don't know man, it's as a weak argument of him being a good guy by not killing bad guys when the bad guys he doesn't kill repeatedly causes lots of death (*cough*joker*cough*)

You basically summed up Batmans entire dilemma and one of the key things about his character that makes him who he is. Batman not killing = Batman. Soon as Batman kills he's not Batman anymore.

Fucking hell zenimax, could you possibly make yourselves look like any bigger assholes right now.

They're literally just mad their ex most talented guy is now helping another company potentially make a boatload of future money. Its pure greed and jealousy and nothing more.

Its a pretty damn fun game and the whole diablo-ee loot lust thing is done well. But eh the story remains pretty so-so.

I didn't like how they ended Liz's story. It really just came down to; well she lost her powers and she died and saved no-one the end. Bioshocks universe is fucked and cruel and whatnot but I really expected something less... negative for the way it was to end. Something that was less of a "well I guess Bioshock truly is dead now".

The dlc really emphasizes Ken Levines thoughts towards ultimately closing down Irrational and abandoning AAA development I think also. It's very clear after you play that dlc that this is a universe and type of game this man has lost complete interest in but rather than see it off gracefully or put it in the hands of another more enthusiastic (more talented?) person he'd see it killed like an unwanted family pet. I dunno I just, I love the Bioshock universe and it both saddens and angers me that it had to end. Infinite was already a let down after the first Bioshock and although I enjoyed many elements of the dlcs they left a very sour taste.
