UGO speaks with Irrational's Lead Artist, Shawn Robertson, about BioShock: Infinite.
Skyshock is a better fit
I need this game like right now!! I am so happy I am going to play another Bioshock game!
Skyshock? really? that is too generic! there is nothing wrong with the word Bioshock. It just needs a better sub-title.
Just thought it would better to go for a different name, like going from Systemshock to Bioshock, to separate the setting of the game universe.
Did I miss Aquashock?
Doki Doki Bioshock
LMAO+ I keep imagining it in a Japanese commercial
Aeroshock maybe? Both would do, but I just know they are keeping "Bio" for marketing purposes.
and because that's the name of the effing series.
Then why didn't it die with Rapture? With Jack, Andrew, Tenenbaum, Sophia etc?
For those who haven't seen it yet the Joystiq interview is amazing. http://www.joystiq.com/vide...
Your a genius!!!
syntax error. can not comply.
ok. your = you are . i quit-.
People, BIO doesn't stand for underwater as far as I'm concerned. So shut the hell up please and understand this name can be used for this game even if it's not underwater anymore.
"Bio" is a prefix meaning Life...Biology = the study of life or living things. As far as I'm concern Bioshock may refer to a living organism that can produce energy like by genetic manipulation ;) It has nothing to do with the Sky part of the new game. Stay in school fellas, this isn't that hard.
Of course Bio doesn't stand for underwater. But it still should be a new IP. The bioshock games were named after the immediate hostile, thread. System shock, the threat was machines... Bioshock, the threat was biologically changed, humans and whatnot. It looks like Bioshock: Infinite, will be the same. However it should not be. It should be a new IP, with new enemies and a new story. Not a new location, and carry the rest over. That's a lot less interesting. I wana learn about new stuff, not more about stuff I already feel I know too much about.
the Bio is bioshock stands for human life, their ideals and dreams and also their manipulation of their physical bodies
I wouldn't be so specific, what you're describing sounds more like a Cronenberg film than anything else.
It will be interesting to see if the events that take place on the Columbia is what leads Andrew Ryan to found Rapture and some of the scientists take refuge there to further develop their genetic sciences.
