BioShock: The Collection Remastered

Last month fans of the BioShock games were elated to discover that a remastered collection of all three games in the series was being released called BioShock: The Collection.

If you’ve been anxiously awaiting a look at how different the remastered version will look from the older games, a new video has been released offering just that. The video compares the oldest game in the collection, the original BioShock from 2007, to the remastered version.

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.

‘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.

BioShock Banner

Well this is certainly unexpected!

BioShock Infinite was easily one of the best games of last year, a long-awaited yet very much worth it follow-up to the 2007 classic BioShock. Many wondered with great excitement where the franchise could and would go in the future, but all of that is now much more up in the air than anyone anticipated.

In a message posted by Ken Levine, one of the co-founders of BioShock and System Shock 2 developer Irrational Games, it has been revealed that the studio will be closing its doors after work on the final BioShock Infinite DLC is completed.

Continue below for more and to read the full announcement from Levine, including what’s next for him.

The end of 2013 has arrived, and video game critics, websites, and players everywhere are choosing their picks for Game of the Year.

I’ve not been able to play all of the great games that were released this year (there were quite a few), sadly, so I can’t fairly declare one the best of them all. I can, however, share my personal favorites, and wanted to open up a good ol’ geek discussion so you too can share your favorites!

Return To Rapture: Launch Trailer For Episode 1 Of ‘BioShock Infinite’ DLC “Burial At Sea”

BioShock Infinite DLC Burial At Sea

I fell in love with 2007’s BioShock moments into the game. Not a shot fired. Not an enemy faced. Minimal buttons pushed. Something about that opening mesmerized me, and I’ll remain under that spell for all time. In those opening moments something else occurred to me as well: boy, would it be interesting to see and walk around this jaw-dropping underwater city of Rapture before it all went to hell. And this desire only grew stronger as shots were fired, enemies were faced, countless buttons were pushed, and the story progressed.

Then came the announcement: some DLC being released for the also-stunning recent game BioShock Infinite would bring us back to Rapture, before anarchy reigned. My joy at this news could not be contained, but I was sadly unable to read more than the headline because, at the time, I had not played Infinite yet. This has since been remedied, my brain properly and delightfully liquified by Infinite complexities, and now episode one (of two) of that DLC, titled “Burial At Sea,” is here, along with a launch trailer you can watch below.

Disney Infinity Columbia

Irrational Games’ BioShock Infinite, is not a game for children. Its story, its gameplay, its themes, they’re all very adult aimed, without a doubt. So when you find out the game has been crossed over into the very kid friendly video game Disney Infinity, well…it might just come as a bit of a shock.

Infinite is set in the city of Columbia, which floats radiantly in the skies. And if you own Disney Infinity, you can now download a Toy Box version of Columbia (complete with Carl’s house from Up) for free.

Continue below to check out a video showing off the Infinity version of Columbia.

Developers: Irrational Games/2K Australia

Creative Director/Lead Writer: Ken Levine
Original Music by Gary Schyman
Release Date: March 26, 2013

I can remember the first time I popped in the original Bioshock, and was literally blown away as I watched our hero survive a plane crash and end up finding this lighthouse, and then taking the magical journey to Rapture, an underwater paradise that surprised and fascinated me with every turn. I can say that that initial journey to Rapture and the first time we come in contact with a Big Daddy, will forever be sketched into my video game history.

I have gotten about halfway through both Bioshock and Bioshock 2, although since I have finished the newest game in the series, BioShock Infinite, I have decided to go back and finish both of the previous installments.
