Kickstarter Spotlight: The Black Glove

Many people who are fans of video game and who are in the gaming industry were shocked by the sudden and unexpected closing of Irrational Games, the makers of BioShock and BioShock Infinite, including many of the people who worked at the company. Though surely a difficult thing for the people it affected most to get past, life does indeed go on, as they say. And so it was only a matter of time before the tremendously talented group of people who worked on the BioShock games started making new games.

As it turns out, a pair of new games from new developers featuring the talents of former Irrational employees have now sprung up on Kickstarter, and so we’re happy to help spread the word. Both games—one titled The Black Glove from Day For Night Games, the other The Flame in the Flood from The Molasses Flood—look phenomenal in very different ways. One looks somewhat similar to BioShock (in a good way), while the other looks far from it.

You can read more about both projects and see gameplay for both titles in their Kickstarter videos below!

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.

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.

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.

Rating: M
Developers: Irrational Games/2K Australia
Publisher: 2K Games
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.
