A look at one of the greatest first person shooters of all time as remasters head to PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The Collection on PS4 is beautiful and runs great from my perspective.
Gonna buy this as soon as it hits 40 bucks. Just torn between getting it on Xbone or PS4
They fooled you into thinking you were playing an original game, but officially, it is System Shock 2 underwater
Like the writer said: "one of the greatest first person shooters of all time"
Will buy when it's half priced.
it's really shitty that you can't stream the game using the built-in PS4 features... it pops up "entered blocked scene" and never "exits the blocked scene" It's my first time playing any of the BioShock games and I was stoked to play/stream...but 2K has blocked the entire collection from being able to be streamed that way for some reason. I don't have a capture card/capable pc so I stream thru the PS4 built-in options... (it works fine if you use a capture card because obviously that captures everything straight from your PS4, you just have to turn off HDCP) it's even on their support page. http://support.2k.com/hc/en... makes no sense at all.. especially when all of these games have been out for YEARS now kinda noticed something similar today while streaming fallout 4... my viewers couldn't hear the radio stations (with songs) but they could hear the emergency radio stations (asking for help/automated messages)... they couldn't even hear the newest Nuka-World radio while I was running around in Nuka World... probably has something to do with copyrights and music... either way the PS4 streaming capabilities are good for beginning and testing the waters. But I'm ready to make the upgrade and have more customization. and actually be able to stream the way I want.
Might be s license thing? Perhaps Bethesda are allowed to use the tracks in game for individual users but not to stream them. Pretty sure most of the tracks are really old but I guess they might still have licensing attached to them.
If you haven't played these then DON'T WATCH THAT TRAILER. Maybe it's from having played it but I feel it's full of spoilers...
Dead Space recently received a popular remake that was faithful yet constructive, and the original BioShock is also deserving of this treatment.
No it doesn't need it. It was remastered in 60 fps last gen and still looks and plays great. Would be a waste of time, money and resources imo. It's games from 3 or 4 gens back that could use the remake treatment.
There have already been 7th gen remakes of games already Dead Space in particular already proves that just because a game looks good on original hardware doesn’t mean it cant look and play better
Agreed although I’m ready for some new groundbreaking IP this generation.
Agreed. Remasters already happened and still look n play fantastic. DS was a different animal. It needed a remake, Bioshock doesn't NEED it. Infinite Remastered for example is extremely viable even today. What we do need is Bioshock 4. Rumors that equated to zip. Where is it? Ken really blew the pooch as well. Left to go do what? He was inspired by Tell Tale or something and went off to become irrelevant. Nice. And Bioshock Vita was scrapped. Fantastic.
Bioshock 4 is definitely still in development. News trickles out about it every couple of months. And Ken's next game (Judas) looks great from the teaser trailer.
Yeah. Pretty much. I understand why they did it with TLOU to coincide with the show but certainly it didn't NEED a remake desperately. Obviously u are trolling and expect me defend anything Sony but idgaf about all that. I say what i feel is the truth. Just like TLOU i wouldn't be upset if Bioshock received a remake but it doesn't desperately need it. I'd probably even play it bc like TLOU, i love Bioshock, but in these aren't identical scenarios either. Ppl kill ND for TLOU Remake yet it wasn't even their project originaly. It started as a potential Uncharted remake and passion project via Visual Arts and was passed to Bend i believe? ND took over bc the project obviously wasn't where it needed to be. And yet they still had Factions and possibly TLOU 3 in development as well. Bioshock has been dormant for a decade bar the remaster. Rumors of a sequel haven't materialised. A remake without a sequel would be disappointing. TLOU Remake is more tolerable knowing sequel/spinoffs are in development. Like i said, dif situation.
It's not all about looks only Tweaks to story Tweaks to characters Improvements to gameplay Original bioshock have the worst puzzle solving system and can get frustrating quickly
The last part you said I agree COMPLETELY!!! Game companies need to mine games from the Sega Saturn, PS1 and N64 days and even the Dreamcast, GameCube, and PS2 days to give a full update to. I know those would require more work, but there are PLENTY of gems from those days that people would LOVE to play again or for the first time with a facelift!!! I know I would.
The games that need remaking are. Resistance fall of man. Motorstorm. PS5 would produce something special. There's been such an advancement in tech since the PS3 days. It would be awesome. DAY 1 BUY for me.
I would kill for Resistance 1-3 Remake/Remaster. Same with MotorStorm series and Killzone series. Man, I loved my PS3. Can we also get the Metal Gear series and rescue MGS4 off the PS3? There is a rumor of MGS3 getting a remake. One of, if not my number 1, favorite game of all time. On topic, I played Bioshock like 6 months after release after hearing from everyone and their mother how incredible it was. I know I will be in the minority on this, but I couldn't get into it. I think my expectations were too high. Totally my fault. Maybe I should give it another chance...
MGS4 Red Dead 1
Agreed, Killzone as well, but Sony has no interest in the future of those IP. It won't happen. If they cared about Motorstorm they wouldn't have axed Evolution. The last remaster from a dead studio "Wipeout" was exceptional yet nobody supported it. Even with a free VR inclusion. If ppl want these remasters...actually support the ones that release. Medievil same thing. Ppl cried for Demon's Souls Remake, The Last Guardian, Shenmue 3 and the sales didn't match the cries. None of these games sold as u would imagine given the internet pleas for these titles over a decade or more. DeS Remake did alright but given the circumstances it should've sold better. 92 Meta, PS5 launch exclusive, stunning visuals, and the first of the genre in an age where Eldin Ring will push 30 million units. Yes, DeS is only one platform but still.
I do agree mostly with what you said. I bought killzone,2,3. Did not like 4 other then it's graphics. I bought infamous 1,2. Second son never did it for me apart from again the graphics, so parts were good. But world felt too empty. Probably needed a PS5 to do it justice. Bought all the Resistance and Motorstorms, those games were awesome. They 100% need a remake. PS3 was just an awesome machine, I know it was a pain to develop for, but it had some many titles that I loved. I really enjoyed the Bioshock series, the first 2 were best. Very good games. As for Demon souls.and the souls series in general. They never have had massive sales. I think because they are very hard games. we are talking a million or less. I think the remaster did 1.4million. Motorstorm pacific rift did 1.4million PS3.I think. Hopefully some of them will come back.
I would love this Expand on the lore Incorporate Bioshock Infinite and Bioshock 2 plot lines Add room rooms or maybe even an extra area Maybe new plasmids Give Jack a personality and add voice acting, it worked for Isaac. Jack did speak at the start of the game so adding onto that and giving him convos between Atlas or Ryan would be great
Man could you imagine what bioshock would look like in ue5 with full raytracing, phwaaarrrhh.
I wouldn't mind a BioShock remake only because I felt the combat could have been better. The combat in part 2 was great but the story was terrible. If they can incorporate the fighting mechanics from part 2 and Infinite then perhaps. But BioShock for me is really known for it's incredible story. The twist at the end is the biggest "oh sh**" moment and what solidifies the game as fantastic. Already knowing this for a remake would cheapen the experience.
I am wondering what Ken Levine is working one with his company in Boston
