BioShock

In every video game you can only go where the game lets you go. Even the biggest open world games have areas that you can’t reach and explore. And in most cases, those areas don’t have anything worth seeing. But as it turns out, sometimes there’s interesting stuff hiding.

My favorite recent internet discovery is the video series “Boundary Break” from YouTube user Shesez. The videos explore these areas in various video games by basically detaching the camera and taking it wherever they want, giving fans a peek at some of the hidden things you could never discover for yourself while playing.

One of the most recent videos explores the unreachable areas of the classic BioShock, and finds some pretty darn cool (and sometimes funny) little secrets. You can watch the video below.

Negan's Bat Lucille

Some people are content simply purchasing whatever is available for who or what they want to be for Halloween. More crafty folks, such as cosplayers, might prefer taking the long road and building their costumes and props from scratch.

YouTube series DIY Prop Shop has been doing some great videos recently, perfect for this time of year. They offer tutorials on how to build replicas of Negan’s bat Lucille from The Walking Dead, Ash’s chainsaw hand from the Evil Dead movies and TV show, and an ADAM syringe from BioShock.

Learn how to make your very own replicas of these props in the videos below.

Red Dead Redemption - Westworld

If you’re among the many that have been watching HBO’s latest hit Westworld you might be surprised to learn that a few big names from the realms of video games were actually an inspiration in creating the series.

In a recent interview with creators and showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, Nolan revealed that games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption, BioShock, and the games of BioWare (best known for the Mass Effect series) were among the things that inspired them while developing Westworld.

You can read Nolan’s full quote below.

BioShock: The Collection Remastered

While seeing new games announced and shown off is the biggest thing most gamers were looking forward to coming out of E3 2016, some were hoping to hear word of some remastered releases. Two of the big ones that jump to mind fans really want to see polished up and re-released are the Mass Effect trilogy and the BioShock trilogy.

Sadly, neither of those was announced during E3. We did, however, get a small new peek at the next Mass Effect game, Andromeda. And as for a new game in the BioShock series, while we do know 2K plans to make one eventually, we don’t know for sure if it’s even being worked on yet.

But never fear! It’s been a couple of weeks since E3 now, and 2K has officially announced BioShock: The Collection, the remastered re-release of the original game, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite along with DLC. You can read more about it and see a trailer below.

Must-Listen: ‘BioShock: A Radio Drama’

BioShock: A Radio Drama

BioShock is one of my all-time favorite games, and I’ve been itching to return to the underwater city of Rapture for some time now. I’ve played the opening many times—again, one of the very best—but haven’t seen it through since that first time. That changed earlier this month, and it was just as beautiful and terrifying and unforgettable as ever. And it came with an added bonus.

While searching for related videos on YouTube, I came across this little treat. BioShock: A Radio Drama—an impressive old school style radio production adapted from BioShock and the John Shirley novel BioShock: Rapture. And this isn’t just a few minutes for fun, either; this is a two-part (so far), over two-and-a-half-hour production, with top-notch voice acting and sound work.

You can give it a listen below the surface!

BioShock Big Daddy and Little Sister

Though it came as a shock when it was announced that BioShock and BioShock Infinite developer Irrational Games was closing, it was made clear right away that there would still be new games in the series coming eventually. When that might be was, and remains, unknown.

But while we still don’t know what the next BioShock game will be or when it will be arriving, 2K Games has begun teasing something in the form of an image shared via the Twitter. Whether it’s for a brand new entry in the main series, a smaller title on different platforms, a remastered re-release of one of the previous games on next-gen systems, or just a cruel tease? That’s all up in the air.

You can check out the image below and share your thoughts on what it might mean below.

‘BioShock Infinite’ Barbershop Quartet Cosplayers Sing “God Only Knows” (Video)

BioShock Infinite "God Only Knows"

One of the coolest things about BioShock Infinite is the collection of songs you hear throughout the game that are old-timey covers of popular tunes that won’t be recorded until decades after the 1912-set story. Some of the songs covered include “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” and “Tainted Love.”

My personal favorite of these songs comes early on in the game, before the story really gets started and you’re just walking around taking in the incredible world you’re visiting. When you walk past a certain point, a floating stage ship appears carrying a barbershop quartet who sing a lovely rendition of the Beach Boys classic “God Only Knows.” It’s one of many surreal and memorable moments that make Infinite a must-play.

PAX East was recently held and lots of great cosplayers attended the convention. One group of said cosplayers went as the BioShock barbershop quartet, and not only did they look the part but also delivered the song as well.

You can see a video of the quartet in the game (if you haven’t played yet) and a video of the cosplayers singing below.

2K Games Confirms More ‘BioShock’ Games After Surprise Closing Of Irrational Games

BioShock Big Daddy and Little Sister

Earlier this week came the surprising news that BioShock and BioShock Infinite developer Irrational Games would be closing its doors soon, leaving the future of the franchise up in the air.

Considering that publisher 2K Games has already made a direct sequel to the original game in 2010, not to mention the fact that Irrational co-founder Ken Levine said they would be handing the reins to 2K now, it was assumed that they would almost certainly be making at least one more title in the series at some point. Now 2K has confirmed their intentions.

You can read what they said below.
