this looks fucking awesome. and i agree with the sentiments in this thread. the sequel was pretty good, but definitely not as gripping as the first. it'll be good to get out of rapture.

B2 felt like a really, really good expansion pack.

Personally, I would love more time in Rapture. I'd also preferred it to not have the Bioshock name, since for me, Bioshock = Rapture. But I get the concept of attaching the name to it since Bioshock sells.

And while the game looks great, it doesn't even matter. I could see zero screenshots and know nothing about the game, but knowing the people who are working on the project would be enough to make me salivate.

Still bummed it's not in Rapture, but Columbia looks awesome. I really hope you're not with Elizabeth much, I fucking hate escort missions.

ha yeah, pretty much. that's the same way i felt with "brothers in arms: earned in blood" for the xbox.

honestly though i don't know how many more underwater levels i could take. i'm kinda raptured out. but if they find a way to tie infinite into rapture then i can see why they'd attach the name to it (besides the obvious marketing advantage).

haha same here. i get the same way when valve puts something out.

Agreed. I liked the way they were doing like co-op plasmids, but I don't want her to be around the whole time.

with the way the people who make Bioshock are, I wouldn't be suprised if this gets pushed back to 2014

The second wasn't as good, mainly because the setting of the first is one of the main reasons I loved it so much.
The gameplay IMO was a lot smoother in #2, so I'm hoping they improve on that even more for the third.
That, added to a new location, stoked.

The year is 1912.


With the United States emerging as a world power, the floating City of Columbia is a mighty symbol of American ideals, launched with great fanfare to the cheers of a captivated public. But what begins as an endeavor of hope soon turns to disaster, as the city disappears into the clouds, its whereabouts unknown. The greatest accomplishment in American history has vanished without a trace.


The player assumes the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to Columbia to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned there since childhood. He will develop a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so the pair may escape from a city that is literally falling from the sky. DeWitt will learn to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harness the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.

This just sounds so cool, I can't wait...
Is it 2012 yet?

It has a slated August tentative release right now. It is my most anticipated. For Bioshock fans, has anyone else played Deus Ex Human Revolution? I am big fan of the Deus Ex franchise, and the newest game is very reminiscent of Bioshock in many ways.

I wanted to so bad, but I had to save up for Gears so it slipped past me. I am waiting for a game of the year version so it comes with all the DLC.
