    Bioshock 2 is worth playing definitely, no point in playing it before Infinite unless you really want to.

    Yeah. I tried playing Bioshock 2 when it was first released and got bored real quick.

    It's a really competent well made game, but you're essentially doing the exact same thing, going through bins, micro managing ammo and money in preparation for combat etc.

    Went back to the second game a couple of years later and loved it.

    I'll buy it then. Only £7 on Green Man!

    Thanks guys. I'll wait for Infinite to go on offer and pick it up then.

    I'm actually tempted to play Bioshock 2 myself, having never played the first one. Might be a good idea before replaying Infinite.

    Speaking of which, anyone playing 1999 mode?

    @Kay
    You need to be introduced to Rapture properly, so play the original before playing number 2.

    Holy mother of fuck fuck. I'm just home from GDC where everyone and their auntie was talking about Infinite and now I see why.

    How on earth am I going to progress through it when I am frozen to the spot, arrested in wonderment. I feel like I'm inside a Pixar movie.
    I'm maxed out on PC.

    Just.. wow.

    Did you know that the game sleeve is reversible? The reverse side is proper retro cool looking.

    @LionheartDJH Feel like I've kinda missed the boat on that one, though. Not that inclined to play it now that I know about the story and twist, and its well-documented flaws.

    From what I've read the sequel tightened the gameplay up and had better combat, with the only major criticism being that it was too familiar with an inferior plot.

    Finished the game tonight. Really enjoyed it but had to do some reading afterwards to fully understand everything! Definitely deserves a second play through.

    Bioshock 1 and 2 are on sale on Gamefly for £2.99 the pair atm.

    My biggest problem is hitting the 'play recording' button during combat, resulting in me hearing the same clip about ten times so far.

    The opening is fantastic, not that far in yet though. The ascent did a fine job of recreating the wonder I felt during the original's intro.

    Spent 30 minutes hanging on the beach with Elizabeth. Wow. Haven't been this immersed in game world in a very, very long time.

    World building bar has been set.

    Wtf did you do for 30 minutes. I enjoyed the view, I listened to some people talk, I collected some food, I watched her dance. Ten minutes tops! You didn't self love did you? So wrong.

    I'm going to play Infinite when I'm back off my easter break, but how on earth do you get immersed in a game world of platforms floating on pure convenience?

    Because platforms floating on pure convenience is precisely the sort of fantastical thing that should suck you into a game world.

    Also, isn't the floating tech explained somewhere via a Voxophone?
  • Deleted user 1 April 2013 23:35:05
    It's explained by looking at the bottom of the buildings.
  • Deleted user 1 April 2013 23:36:00
    Yes the science is explained.

    Just finished. Reeling a bit. Wow.

    Yet again a good story holds the gameplay up in a harsh light though. When you sit through an ending like that all those waves of cannon fodder and contrived set pieces that came before it just feel all the more ridiculous.

    Still brilliant though.

    You really should play the first one first, it's fantastic. I replayed it last month and loved every moment.

    Yeah, in as far as saying Rosalind Lutece is a genius scientist and they float using quantum magic. Really though, how can you realistically explain a floating city? I think they did a great job of making it immersive.

    I got the impression it was based on a real thing called the Meissner effect, made relevant by the recent Higgs discovery, but quite what the relevance of explaining that in a game would be is beyond me, but then you're not the sharpest tool in the box.

    You're a mallet.

    A mallet that needs to stop harping on about shit that neither matters, nor would make the blindest bit of difference if it did.

    Can't sleep and it's 6.30 in the middle of the night. Doesn't mean he's not a mallet though, he very much is.

    Anyone experienced this game locking up the Xbox? Came back at lunch for a cheeky blast of this and gets as far as the loading screen to continue and locks up completely. Tried either continuing or loading a chapter with same results.

    Pretty fucked off now.

    Edit: on the Xbox

    Try another game. I thought my copy of darksiders was fucked once upon a time and it eventually turned out my 360 was on the edge of a RROD.

    Just fired up re6 and it's fine. Bioshock still refuses to do anything.

    Thing is is that I'm only a few hours in so I could delete and reinstall if it wasn't for†the fact I'll lose the perks from my pre order... The gear and I'm sitting at 1000 cash.

    Edit: A quick google search shows others have had the same issue. I have contacted 2K but while I wait for a solution the game will just have to sit on my shelf. Considering how long I've been looking forward to playing this to say I'm a bit miffed is an understatement.
