Your Shooter Deserves Better Feedback

So there you are, minding your own business, when the CEO of Giant Game Publisher approaches you with an offer: he wants you to lead the development of a brand new entry in That First Person Shooter that he makes, and he wants you to make sure it’s fun to play. How do you make sure it’s fun to play?

BioShock Sells 25 Million Copies, Still Wasn't Enough To Save Irrational

As we’ve seen in the last few years, being behind a popular franchise or pumping out successful games is not always enough to save a studio from the chopping block. Take Irrational Games and BioShock, which pushed 25 million copies. That’s apparently mediocre, if the fate of Irrational is anything to go by.

I Wish This Was BioShock Infinite's Story

In case you forgot, Valve’s Source Filmmaker is an extremely powerful tool for turning games into movies. Sometimes we get things like the fantastic Team Fortress 2 End of the Line short. Other times we get sheer, unbridled madness. These videos starring BioShock‘s Booker DeWitt are the latter.

Playing A Fake Arcade Game Will Make A Weird Game Weirder

When first signs of life appeared for The Black Glove, it quickly became clear that the former BioShock devs working on the first-person game wanted it to be a bit bizarre. So their homage to old-school arcade games won’t just be a fun, nostalgic mini-game. Those creatures are going to break through into the funky nightclub where the game happens. Things will get even stranger.

A Game That Makes BioShock Look Downright Normal

The Black Glove, which is being made by ex-BioShock devs, looks like BioShock‘s zanier child, but it certainly doesn’t play anything like it. For one, no guns. For two, space minotaurs. Three, it’s about a surreal trans-dimensional 1920s theatre. It sounds really, really cool. And super weird.

BioShock Figure Is Hilariously Awful

When you look at Booker DeWitt — star of BioShock Infinite — on the cover of the game, you see a rugged man of action who won’t take no guff from nobody. When you look at his face on this new action figure, you see something else.

LEGO Bioshock Infinite Diorama Is Simply Massive

The exterior of the Bank of the Prophet in Bioshock Infinites was one of the most memorable parts of the game, and it’s just simply incredible in LEGO form.

Fox News Allegedly Rips Off The BioShock Infinite Logo

Well, here’s a bit of irony. Check out the logo used by Fox News during a recent interview with Texas Governer Rick Perry about immigration. It sure looks similar to the BioShock Infinite logo, right?

BioShock Infinite's Health System Would Be Disgusting In Real Life

We all know how silly the video game trope of “restore health with food” is, but seeing someone try it in real life is even sillier.

Add Bioshock Infinite's Columbia To The 'Made In Minecraft' List

Guys, at this rate we’re going to run out of things to make in Minecraft. Add to the pile this recreation of Bioshock Infinite’s Columbia. No word on whether you get fired into it from a cannon.
