In case you’re wondering if your computer can handle the PC version of BioShock Infinite, you’ve come to the right place. Head past the break for the minimum required, and recommended PC specs. If you haven’t bought either of the 1st 2 BioShocks now would be the best time. The BioShock Ultimate Rapture Edition is now available in the US. Included in the edition is BioShock and BioShock 2 and DLC totaling over $40.00 worth of stuff. And you get it for the low low price of $30.00. Don’t forget to head past the break!
Remember that Ultimate Rapture Edition we reported on back in June? It looks like that’s finally happening. Publisher 2K recently confirmed that the special edition is on the way and will bring with it everything but a demo for BioShock: Infinite. That’s unfortunate. Full details after the break.
BioShock 2 has finally made its way to Macs everywhere. You Mac gamers can download it right now for I believe $30.99. Weird, but alright. I personally LOVED BioShock 2. A lot of people thought it was an unnecessary sequel. I don’t care, it was still an awesome game. Moving on, go buy it! Also, the Minerva’s Den DLC is incredible. If you own

How are you? Are you feeling okay? You’re staying hydrated I hope. We’re in the middle of the dreaded summer drought, where the sun reaches its maximum sun burn-inflicting power, and the heat seems nearly inescapable. But what makes all this worse is the lack of new releases. So while we’re hiding inside our houses careful to keep our pale gamer skin away from the sun’s glaring eye, anxiously waiting for autumn to arrive and save us with its slew of big releases, we have to find other things to keep our energy drink fueled minds busy.
Luckily, this is a rather great time for big news. June gifted us with E3 and all the goods that comes with it, and now we have arguably the second biggest event for gamers and geeks: Comic Con. So, assuming your mind hasn’t been fried by that evil yellow ball we call the sun, why don’t you read on to get caught up on the biggest happenings with Left 4 Dead, Resident Evil, Dead Space, Alan Wake, and slew of other amazing titles that will have you screaming like a tween girl (or grown man, no one’s judging here) at a Justin Bieber concert, assuming you’ve kept hydrated. If you haven’t you’ll probably just make a harsh croaking sound, and no one wants that. READ MORE
If you read mine and Adam’s CO-OP REVIEW, you’ll already know I love BioShock 2. And I also love the multiplayer. However, in my quest for 1000 Achievement Points in BioShock 2 I find myself getting more and more frustrated with the multiplayer.
I don’t have a problem with the multiplayer itself, but with the insane glitching. I’m constantly ending up in games that are lagging terribly. Even worse, the game will freeze mid game, or even right before a games end. READ MORE
Now, this is usually where I take ailing franchises Silent Hill or ones that have lost their way (like Resident Evil) and try and figure out how they can be brought back to their former glory. With that said, this one was quite a bit tougher to analyze since there really isn’t anything blatantly wrong with the BioShock series. Sure, the sequel didn’t capture our hearts and imaginations in the same way that the original did, but that can mostly be blamed on the fact that it was our second dive into the crumbling city of Rapture.
So how can the third game make the same gigantic splash that the original did? Who should you play as, and where should it take place? Should it be another sequel, or perhaps a prequel, to give us a taste of what Rapture was like before the fall. Read on to find out what I think the answers to these questions should be, and more, after the jump. READ MORE
So, if I can pry my face off my tv screen after my 48 straight hours of playing Final Fantasy XIII coming up next week I’ll be buying the 1st BioShock 2 DLC. Known as the “Sinclair Solutions Tester Pack” this pack will be loaded with multiplayer goodness. It’s going to cost 400 space bucks (Microsoft Points), and $4.99 on the Playstation 3. I seriously wish Microsoft would start actually just charging normal money like Playstation does, seriously are we still using monopoly money?
March 11th is the date, and in the upcoming weeks there will be an announcement for more multiplayer DLC in addition to single play extending downloadable content. Past the break for screens and DLC features. READ MORE
Plasmid videos anyone? 3 more past the break!

Over the next few months they plan on releasing a few packs for the multiplayer, and an expansion for the single player. Past the break for screens and info… READ MORE
Adam and I got a chance to interview Garry Schyman the composer behind the amazing music for Dante’s Inferno and BioShock 2. Garry has also done such games as BioShock 1 (which he won several awards for), Destroy All Humans and Voyeur, among others, t.v. shows and films.
Head past the break to check out the interview! READ MORE
The rest of the year has some serious competition with the handful of amazing games we’ve already received only two months into 2010. Without a doubt, one of the most anticipated releases this year is BioShock 2, so does it live up to the hype?
Or more importantly, our expectations? We’ve just returned from our dive back into the underwater utopia of Rapture and here’s what we found. READ MORE
This has been one helluva exciting couple of months, especially if you enjoy slaying unbaptized babies (and possibly little girls, depending on how you play your games), zombies, and non-zombies. In case you hadn’t noticed this already, BioShock 2 and Dante’s Inferno are finally out and may be just what we need to tide us over until the new Resident Evil 5 and Left 4 Dead DLC come out over the next couple months.
But that’s not all, oh no it isn’t, you may have seen some Gears of War in your Lost Planet 2? Well, now there’s also a little bit of Resident Evil in there to make that game even better. As Alan Wake nears its May release date we’ve been given some more details on the game including a very cool new trailer. So read on you handsome, intelligent reader you so you can get your monthly dose of all things horror. READ MORE
BioShock 2 releases at midnight at Best Buys and Game Stops for those who pre-ordered, and I’m assuming for those who didn’t and can get a copy. I’ll be picking mine up tonight and possibly not going to bed. If you pre-ordered at Game Stop you get 2 bonus characters, Zigo and Blanch for multiplayer. Check out the launch trailer below.
“One of the most exciting aspects of the original BioShock was how our fans responded with adoration for the game, from creating homemade Big Daddy suits to their own BioShock-inspired art and videos,” said Christoph Hartmann, president, 2K. “We felt it was only fitting to reach out to those passionate fans with nationwide Return to Rapture midnight openings where they can pick up their copy of BioShock 2 as early as possible.” The game is out officially tomorrow on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. READ MORE
Beyond the break you can check out the gameplay trailer for Bioshock 2. “In Bioshock 2 you play as the first Big Daddy in the history of Rapture, what could possibly stop you?”
What’s interesting is the gameplay as a Big Daddy, which hopefully is a little less frustrating than playing in the first game where you walk all heavy, slow and have limited viewing space (although that looks to be changed a bit).
BioShock 2 is a first-person shooter video game, developed by 2K Marin as the sequel to the critically-acclaimed BioShock. It is due for release on October 30, 2009 internationally and on November 3, 2009 in North America simultaneously on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows platforms.
So, word on the street is, if you beat Bioshock for the Playstation 3, you get to see a teaser trailer, and I really mean teaser, for Bioshock 2. Well, here it is!
If you like the crazy sounds you heard in BioShock, 2K Games has put up some audio files you can download, and they were taken from the digital master files for the game. Which basically means they are very good quality. You can get them right HERE. You can use them for your own personal enjoyment, or for weird experiments, or maybe you’re a video game nerd, and you’ll dissect them and piece them back together. I would probably make some weird voice mail message with them. READ MORE
