Bioshock General Discussion
« on: April 27, 2013, 09:04:46 AM »
A place where all three bioshock games can be discussed.

Starting off with Infinite, I'm not the only one who thought the story got absolutely ridiculous at the end, right? The only knock-on effect I can see is

Songbird's presence in Rapture, if there are any extraordinary minds left in rapture they could definitely use songbird's technology to do something bizarre.

Also is 1999 mode worth it? Hard was too easy.

1999 Mode just isn't worth it, enemies just become bullet spongy, no mechanics change. It's still easy (except for Handymen, they're a pain) but there's no satisfaction to doing it. I'm about halfway through and gave up due to boredom. The one run through was enough for me.

It got a bit spongy towards the end when you had to

Especially the patriots. But the story was the only thing this game had going for it, so I was unsure as to whether or not play 1999 mode, but thanks for telling me :D

The story and the world were redeeming factors for the games shoddy gameplay... but still a good overall experience.

For me infinite was a let down since the story didn't feel any different each time you plqyed it and the ending was not really pulling my strings like bioshock 2 did and the first was so fun without the vita chambers enabled :D

 
Thanks GK for the new sig it looks great!

Your post just reminded me of this:

Not a bad deal if you don't have it on PC.

Hey Guys, I tried making a new style of video where I talk about Bioshock. Its more theory based. I wanted to try something with a voice over and heavy editing and see how it panned out, and i figured it would be easier talking about the game i enjoy most. If you like Bioshock tell me what you think of the video, and I encourage everyone to leave some constructive feedback for me. Thanks everyone!



P.S. I have a full playthrough of every single game on my channel so make sure to check that out!

Weird timing. I'm playing through Bioshock 2 for the first time right now. Yes my backlog is actually that bad. I just finished Infinite for the first time a few days ago, though I've played that before, I didn't go far into it, I got to about the part where you first meet Elizabeth and then never got back to it.

Either way, nice video @Nefty . It's an interesting what-if take on what the next game would be like if/when it ever actually happens.

Thanks bob. Personally Bioshock 2 is my favorite of all three and I think it was criminally underrated. Infinite is a really great story but i didnt like how you can only carry two guns at once. My favorite part about the first two games was the multitude of weapons to choose from. IF/When another game is made, I hope this feature returns.

Idk, I couldn't get into Bioshock 2 honestly. Just felt like Bioshock 1 but more clunky due to being a big daddy.

The only clunkiness i felt was your hands working independently of one another. Im probably just bad at the game but that still feels really weird to me.

Personally, My favorite was Bioshock 2 as well with the variety of weapons you can find later in the game. I have the Remastered and I'm thinking about beating it again for fun.

I have a obsession with Black Panther. I know.
