adamnp Posted August 21, 2007 Share Posted August 21, 2007 --Excerpt from site-- BioShock is the "genetically enhanced" first person shooter that lets you do things never before possible in the genre: turn everything into a weapon, biologically mod your body with plasmids, hack devices and systems, upgrade your weapons and craft new ammo variants, and experiment with different battle techniques in an incredible and unique underwater city. You are a cast-away in Rapture, an underwater Utopia torn apart by civil war. Caught between powerful forces, and hunted down by genetically modified “splicers” and deadly security systems, you have to come to grips with a deadly, mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. No encounter ever plays out the same, and no two gamers will play the game the same way. BioShock is loaded with some of greatest, most modifiable weapons to ever blast their way into a shooter. But guns alone won’t be enough to defeat the devious AIs of Rapture. There are literally hundreds of other strategies players can use to take out his enemies. Here’s just a few things you can do a foe: Catch his Grenades in Mid Air and Toss Them Back at Him Freeze Him Solid and Shatter Him with Smack of your Wrench Lead him and his comrades to water and Zap them all with 1000 Volts Burn Him Up With Home-Made Molotov Cocktails Booby Trap Healing Machines and Watch Them Blow up IN his Face Brainwash Him to Become Your Personal BodyGuard Invent your own Ammo Types to Prey on his Vulnerabilities Turn his own Security System Against Him Light Him on Fire and Launch Heat Seeking Missiles At him Torment Him with Plagues of Insects Take Research Photos of Him to Learn his Weaknesses Send Him Flying into the Ceiling to Knock him Senseless No encounter ever plays out the same way twice. No two gamers will ever play BioShock the same way. --end excerpt-- Anyone check out this demo? The fullrelease is slated to come out later on today via steam and is already on store shelves. The game is incredible. Just mind boggling how crazy the new games are getting, I remember sitting back playing Firefighter, and Lemonaide stand in 2 colors on a 300 Baud modem connected to my local Bulletin Board System. Or playing the lively Qbert on my monochrome IBM PC JR (First personal computer manufactured) From Sierra's hayday with the kingsquest and such games as scorched earth and the original Doom games, it just blows me away what these new games are like. I even find it difficult to play some of them, whereas the newer younger kids pick it up like its nothing. Haha, I always find time to make sure I still play games and enjoy what I do..I was just so blown away by this game, definately give the thumbs up for checking it out.
