When is the nail in your coffin going to be placed, Pachter?

He truly is the definition of an open door.

Yes...this guy has literally zero value as an analyst/pundit.

Sites have to stop dignifying his random guesses by publishing them.

always take what he say with a 45tons grain of salt....

Does this guy just talk to hear himself??

Well, lets see what happens. I personally liked BioShock 2.

Visiblemarc1624d ago

Yes, 2 was underrated. Also Infinite certainly didn't meet their targets, but sold many millions and much like the film industry, this industry never, ever (for better or worse) dumps a franchise when the last game moved 5 million+ units. Expect to see a lower budget game based on this property within 4 years, and a "reboot" effort by the end of this gen or the beginning of next.

I don't care about Bioshock, and I didn't read the article. But, it's true.

Any time the creative minds behind a series leave, the series is done. It's about to change in ways that the original fans will hate.

Well...he could have a point here, I mean if the next installment dosen't meet up to standards then yeah it will be because they will only end up decreasing in quality

I'm scared that this "plan" Ken Levine laid out in Infinite...

"There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city"

Will end up being ruined and not what he wanted. I felt they put that into the game so the different universe in each game would connect with one another
