    Prequel rumour. Man, I hate those 'no source, we could've just made this up' rumours.

    Bioshock 2 to depict fall of Rapture?
    Prequel rumoured for second outing in 2K's underwater FPS

    Bioshock 2 is as inevitable as our lunchtime Quake III session following the resounding success of the first game. And 2K could be opting for a prequel with the second outing.

    Well that's the current talk anyway, with rumour suggesting that 2K sources have revealed that Bioshock 2 will be set prior to Bioshock, and that the new adventure is current in pre-production.

    Should Bioshock 2 turn out to be a prequel, we'd imagine that we'd be at least partly dropped into the events surrounding the fall of Rapture, which act as background to the first game.

    Although 2K hasn't said outright that Bioshock 2 is in development, last year parent company Take-Two spoke of how "an every-two-year schedule would be optimal" for the release of new games in the franchise.

    That would peg Bioshock 2's release for 2009.

    Well, I don't think you have to play it. I mean, I didn't play the first one and nobody's been round to arrest me yet.

    Ooooh, good dodge. Don't, it's a pretty corridor shooter, heavy on atmosphere and light on fun.

    I played the demo, saw this immediately, so didn't buy it.

    Haven't been there in ages, but a lot of people at the official forums wanted a prequel type affair for the second game. Honestly, i'm not sure i'd like that particular direction.

    I would love a sequel though.

    More importantly, will I have to take another degree in Philosophy, or Social Engineering or something, so that I will 'get it' and not be one of the plebs who stupidly wanted to play a game?

    on a related note, I really liked all the Ayn Rand stuff and the concept of Rapture as a society and the social frisson that apparently caused its collapse, but the implementation of actually being involved in this was flawed, imho... The promise of actions-having-consequences really only boiled down to not getting 100 extra gamerpoints for being 'nice'

    Which isnt really so much a 'choice' within the game, as a directed moral path deemed 'better' by the developer.

    Oh, never mind. When is the new one due out?

    Yeah, people keep metioning the simpel good/evil choice in the story and panning the game for that.

    Completly forgetting the free from gameplay that precedes that underwelming ending.

    Sure, the last third of the game doesn't entirely live up to what came before. But for the most part the game is fantastic in the way it tells the story and allows you to experiment with the weapons and powers, to aproach the combat in a variety of ways.

    Nah, don't go around assuming Kieron Gillen is better than you just because he says so.

    This is not a Defend Bioshock thread, I'll only say that a prequel was the only way forward. I'm sad, because I think Bioshock should be left well alone- it's perfect as it is and that is it. Shame they're milking it.

    's all in the game though, right.

    WRONG

    Really? Remind me of those branching pathways, wide open spaces, shades of grey choices, and moments where the emphasis wasn't on endless tedious tape recorders lying about to provide 'depth'.

    It's cool to be different.

    I mean, I thought Portal was overly long, mundane and not funny.

    Some opinions are more valid than others.

    EXAMPLE: Played Game > Played Demo Only > Not Played Game

    I did love playing it, I did love mucking about with powers and weapons and drinking in the atmosphere... it just wasn't as good as the interviews with Ken Levine prior to its' release made it sound, to me.

    I would certainly love a prequel - I'm not sure how you could handle a sequel, seeing as you would have to surely code one sequel for people who finished with the 'good' ending , and another for those with the 'bad' ending, y'know, for continuity.

    As for a prequel, we all know what the end result is, and roughly how the story goes from the tape recorders, so wouldn't you just be plodding along a predetermined path that maybe had some freeform elements to the actual gamepley?

    Ohhh, I see, like the first one. Which I did love playing, as a game.

    Very much looking forward to a sequel/prequel.

    I'm glad the plebs don't like it to be honest. I've always considered myself more intelligent than most, and this goes some way to proving myself right (as if I needed any intellectual reinforcement? pah!)

    :p

    Didn't understand any of that, a little too complex ;)

    I feel I ought to clarify that I hold no opinion on Bioshock - I neither love it nor hate it, because I have never played it. This is not because I didn't want to play it, but because I can't play it.

    It was a response to Retroid, who contradicted my claim that bioshock was a corridor shooter. I was asking him to back up his argument. Better?

    And it's not a 'cool' stance, it's a genuine opinion.
