"We Have a Myriad of Ideas": Cloud Chamber's Kelley Gilmore Discusses the Next BioShock Game

GamesRadar - "While specifics of where and when this new BioShock game will take place are light (although you could certainly interpret Cloud Chamber's logo as a potential setting tease), we got to speak with Gilmore about what this next chapter might look like in the hands of her talented team."

God I hope there is no online.

Juancho511648d ago

Having no online would guarantee an amazing single player campaign, I couldn't agree more, a giant epic single player campaign and then sprinkle on some DLC somewhere down the line and ill be ok.

rlow11648d ago

IGN Instructed & Offered Prizes for Crowd to Cheer During Phil Spencer and Other Live Interviews

During the IGN Live interview with Phil Spencer, the crowd cheered even if the topic was about closures, and its because they were told to.

GaboonViper7h ago

A very "slimey" thing to do right Phil???

Anyhow ive never trusted IGN, corrupt to the core.

Killer2020UK6h ago

And now they own a load of other gaming outlets. Sucks for the consumer

It's not scummy... how is this any different than any late night talk show for the past 60 years. People are cued when to cheer, partially artificial I am sure. It's also good for IGN, last thing they want is THEIR show to be a dud.

I would definitely do it if I owned IGN, especially getting someone huge like Phil.

S2Killinit5h ago(Edited 5h ago)

I’ve been saying for years that IGN is MS’s mouthpiece.

fr0sty5h ago

@roadkillers... I dunno, maybe because late night talk shows aren't asking people to cheer for hundreds of people losing their jobs?

ravens524h ago

Late Night Talk Show vs Consumer Showcase/Interview. How are you even putting them in the same category. One is for pure entertainment the other is an interview based on a product.

PRIMORDUS3h ago

And how much is MS worth? 3 trllion and Phil the piece of shit saying "the closures are very hard, but needed for sustainable business" Really? Your worth 3 trillion and the closures were no where near necessary. I don't know about you but I want this asshole to just leave and resign. He's just cancer to the industry.

It's crazy. Some of the top people at IGN are really great, but the organization as a whole just continually finds itself in controversy.

Lightning775h ago

It's all for recognition and publicity. Which doesn't work. It was all staged and disingenuous.

Hard to trust anything IGN does especially now they have a monopoly.

Hard to trust the integrity of the reviews when they are caught manipulating their audience

-Foxtrot3h ago

Now that IGN owns a lot of sites now it’s hard to trust a fair few

Aloymetal5h ago

And some get triggered when we call on their BS and state the obvious. Anyone with half a brain knows the gaming media is biased as heck. It's been like that since forever and the sad part is they will gladly do it for free, anything to help their preferred and irrelevant brand.

Good job finding your way back to N4G.

You were gone during the entire awesome Xbox showcase and awful PS showcase situation.

We were worried for your wellbeing.

Jin_Sakai5h ago

Should be laws in place against these form of actions. Same goes for all the fake 5 start reviews for receiving free items. You can’t believe anything you read or hear anymore.

porkChop5h ago

In journalism school they straight up taught us to never take free products, swag, food, etc, even if there are no strings attached. Even if someone doesn't realize it, and no matter how far removed the swag is from what you're covering/reviewing, free stuff does affect how you perceive the company and its products. It tricks you into feeling more positive about things.

How's this Phil doing?
Was Phil in charge of the 3-day fanfest called IGN Live 2024?

When they're "professional critics" console war on Twitter, you should know not to take them seriously.

Just reading this headline alone made me feel grimy. Disgusting, all around. Haven't trusted IGN since over a decade ago, so this isn't really surprising to hear.

Leeroyw1h ago

IGN lost a lot of credibility a long time ago. Now they're running on fumes.

CrashMania6h ago(Edited 6h ago)

Is anyone really surprised? Hosted by MS' top shill Ryan McCaffrey, this is even worse than the fake E3 crowd applause.

Skuletor6h ago(Edited 6h ago)

I think that kind of thing night be standard. I once was in the audience for Wheel of Fortune and there was a guy that briefed us before the show on his hand signals, when we were supposed to react/applaud and stuff like that and we were told to check under our seats because one of them had a prize underneath it.

Edit: Okay, read the article, this was definitely some slimy behaviour by IGN and it sounds like it wasn't just on the behalf of Xbox either.

Also, since IGN bought Humble Bundle years ago, they stopped occasionally giving a game away for free during certain big sales events etc, screw IGN.
