Looking forward to a new bioshock getting announced, love the franchise. In the slide is that the Lutece twins bird or cage? Sweet

No Ken Levine means its a Bioshock fan game.

dumahim57d ago

Yeah, going to wait on this one for sure.

NecrumOddBoy56d ago

Bioshock 2 is better than Infinite (excluding the DLC on both).

RaidenBlack56d ago

Wonder what Ken Levine's game gonna be ...

TheRealTedCruz56d ago

Might be an unpopular opinion, but I felt he dropped the ball a bit with infinite. Wasn't a bad game, but I find it the weakest of the series.

Good dlc though.

Ehh he kind of dropped the ball on Infinite in story aspects, but its still my favorite one. I loved the art direction

Not the most popular opinion but infinite was my fav. Hoping for more of that.

CanadianTurtle57d ago

The criticism of Infinite is way overblown. I think most people generally liked Infinite better, but it seems that a sub-section of the Bioshock fanbase preferred the first game. This is probably because Infinite played more like a shooter, rather than an action game. I didn't really find this a problem, as I think the shooting mechanics were absolutely fluid in Infinite. Some of my absolute favourite FPS gameplay mechanics ever made in a shooter.

My only critique at the time was that the tech prowess of the game seemed to be scaled back a bit compared to the trailers and gameplay demos shown previously, one of those vertical slices that arent able to be fully embraced in the final game. That being said I loved it, its my favorite of the two and I think my Game of the Year from that year.

Ramboforlife56d ago

It was a gorgeous game for sure, but way too much hand holding. The first one was the best, imo.

TheColbertinator57d ago

The best Bioshock for me was Infinite. Anything that would bring the series back works for me so long as it makes sense to fans.

LucasRuinedChildhood57d ago (Edited 57d ago )

Bioshock 1 is my favourite but I like Infinite a lot as well. I think I should replay it because the last time I played it was on the PS3 which probably undersold it.

I suppose my main reasons would be that the first game has a lot of horror, I prefer the atmosphere of Rapture, the intro sequence is perfect and they should have kept the weapon wheel and some other cut mechanics.

I think Elizabeth is a great character though and I appreciate that they tried new things like the grapple hook, tears and a different art style. Columbia is basically the opposite of Rapture so it felt fresh.

Just like the story itself, Infinite was stuck between multiple dimensions, each look somewhat different yet the same. The game could not decide which theme it wanted to follow. It start which Pen-Americanism, religion-fundamentalism; then both-side-ism by turn everyone into killing anyone; then a little bit of SF horror; than interactive movie. The 1st BioShock at least sticked with a single theme & run with it.

MasterChief362456d ago

Not sure I'd consider that unpopular? I thought it was well-loved by most that played it. I've never heard a bad thing about it, honestly.

The milking has begun. The series was intended to end after Bioshock Infinite's story DLC. I'm curious to see where things go without Ken Levine. Just thinking about Infinite gets me nostalgic, played it 7 years ago back when I was still in college. The series is very near and dear to my heart, and I'd hate to see it done wrong.
The funny thing is, BIoshock 2 didn't have ANY of the original developers from the first game, but that game was a miraculously faithful sequel. I can only hope the developers of this new sequel bring the same care and effort. Best of luck!

Yui_Suzumiya57d ago

It's made up of the same team that made BioShock 2 along with some key folks that made the original and Infinite. I have faith in this project.

You call this milking 🤣🤣🤣

"The series was intended to end after Bioshock Infinite's story DLC"

I'm pretty sure it was meant to wrap up Elizabeth's and Bookers story along with Comstock, Elizabeth made it her mission to find every version of Comstock and rid all Universes of any version of him.

We don't really know if the whole "There is always a lighthouse, there's always a man, there's always a city" started with Elizabeth, Booker and Comstock, they are probably just one variation of this and it seems that this Universe ended up bleeding into another, which was Rapture, causing the events of Rapture to unfold but that's not to say there isn't a version of Rapture where things just happened roughly the same way without Elizabeth's involvement...that's the beauty of the multiverse, every variation is possible.

While Bookers story finished, there's millions of Universes out there where the story is just beginning, a man coming across a Lighthouse and finding himself in a strange city.

pietro121256d ago

Milking? You act like they make a Bioshock every year. It's been years since Infinite and also when was it stated that Infinite was going to be the last title? It was announced to be the last project handled by Ken and 2K was going to continue the series.

TheRealTedCruz56d ago

Infinite was the first game I bought when I built my first PC.

Like, how many sequels to actually milked series have happened since then?

I wasn't a giant fan of Infinite, but I want to see what a new Bioshock will be. Not to mention I'm a big fan of what they did with 2 and Minerva's Den, and somebody here said that team makes up the bulk of the dev team.
