@demoskinos: Ah cool, yeah I bought the Ultimate Rapture edition of Bioshock 1 and 2 and it comes with all the DLC so I'll probably play through 2 at some point. I agree the 3rd act of the 1st is kind of meh, as soon as you get the helmet on I felt so claustrophobic, it was also the point where I was looking for the suit that having splicers everywhere really irritated me
Okay so I'm the guy who only just finished the original Bioshock for the first time, but over the years has stumbled upon basically all the information that made the game crazy good to people. Because I knew all this a lot of my gameplay time was just waiting to see it all unfold as people told it, but I also spent a lot more time actively critiquing the game than I probably would have if I hadn't known the twists etc. So I've got a few thoughts on the game in general;
Story is obviously fantastic, well realised through the audio logs and even as someone who knew the twist it was still great to see it play out
One of the few games I've spent time actively searching for all the audio books as they're so interesting
The beginning of the game is creepy as hell and sets a really good tone
Still looks gorgeous, water effects in particular are fantastic
The negative (My opinion, don't rip my head off!):
Rapture loses it's mystery pretty early on, after a great opening that's really creepy, everything begins to kind of run together
FUCK GUN TURRETS, if I hear that stupid noise they make one more time I'm going to kill someone. Also the spotlight that sets them off really bugs me.
The back half of the game is way too crowded with enemies, personally I didn't think the combat was that great in general and when I had a constant stream of enemies running towards me I found it more of an annoyance than a threat
Linking back to the first and third points, the splicers at the front of the game are great, and I often got a bit worried about them and where they were going to come from, by the end of the game I just needed to see less of them.
Some of the weapons seem kind of meh, I experimented a lot with different weapons and plasmids but I only really found the electric shock, incinerate and frost at a push helpful.
A minor point but the looping dialogue that the little sister you escort keeps on repeating made me want to just bash her over the head with the wrench and that portion went on for too long
Okay so those are my thoughts, I literally finished the game like 10 minutes ago, by no means did I think it was a bad game but just the mechanics were a bit meh, probably will go get Infinite this week at some because I want to play that right away.
ALSO: for people that have finished both, would you say the original Bioshock or Infinite is the superior game?
@tycobb: Give it a rest for a day or two. when trying to build calluses i always noodle around the treble strings as it's a bit more uncomfortable, tended to speed it up for me. though I also play guitar, and use hella heavy strings (not because I'm that hardcore, because I have fat fingers and tend to be pretty clumsy so the thicker they are the less accidental movement they end up doing)
I'm running up against the 60gb of my launch PS3 and as I've committed myself to not buying a PS4 until atleast the slim model comes out, I thought I better upgrade the hard drive, as I'm fairly braindead about drive speeds and shiz (is this even relevant?!) , I was wondering what you duders have used to uber up your ps3? Cheers!
