BioShock 2 updated for Steam after Games for Windows Live closure

Controller compatibility! Steam achievements! Big Picture Mode!

The PC version of BioShock 2 has been updated on Steam now that the Games for Windows Live service has closed.

BioShock 2 on Steam now includes controller compatibility, Steam achievements and supports Big Picture mode. As for multiplayer, you can search for "any game" as opposed to having to select your game mode. DE has also fine-tuned the multiplayer so leveling up is quicker and easier.

If you've already bought BioShock 2 through a different digital platform, you can activate the game activation key within Steam, so you don't need to buy it all over again. Doing this grants you access to BioShock 2, all the multiplayer and Protector Trials DLC and the single-player DLC Minerva's Den.

Bioshock will never really be remembered for its high concept ideas or the way it plays around with the lack of autonomy within an FPS. The legacy is Andrew Ryan, and Rapture, and everything that a game can do to bring to life the failed dream of a larger-than-life figure. It'll be remembered for that scene with the golf club, and for Sander Cohen and Fort Frolic. Bioshock 2 had Sofia Lamb and the Big Sister, and an even more dilapidated Rapture falling apart at the seams. As high-falutin' as Bioshock gets, it's only as strong as its antagonists.
