9-Minute "Bioshock 2" Walkthrough

The only thing louder than the hype for "Bioshock 2" is the cries of those worrying about the series being "ruined" by the 2nd game. To assuage these fears, 2k has been releasing about as much information as they can without totally revealing critical moments in the game. The latest piece in this effort is a 9 minute demo which seems to be a sped up version of the game's first moments, minus the obligatory "press this button to shoot" prompts.

Bioshock 2 Multiplayer Divides the Dorkosphere

The original Bioshock game was applauded for sticking to its strengths as a heavily story based single player game. Even though 2K plans to stick with those strengths with Bioshock 2, it will feature extensive multiplayer gameplay. Thanks to Kotaku, there are now some vague, yet intriguing details.

Horror Headlines: Monday apriil 27th, 2009

Here's the trailer for "The Cell 2". So ya, that happened. The film goes direct to DVD on June 16th.

A list of the schools that will be used as external locations for the "Nightmare on Elm St." remake shoot, which will apparently be shot in Chicago. Area students over 16 are welcome to audition as extras. The film begins shooting May 5th under the direction of Samuel Bayer.

Bill Murray to have a cameo in Woody Harrelson's zomcom "Zombieland", a film which just got a lot cooler.

Here's your "bang your head off your desk" story for Monday morning. "Videodrome" is being remade at Universal as a "large-scale sci-fi thriller". Oh boy, that's up there with one of the worst sentences I've ever had to type on this site.

But wait... there's more to this story than meets the eye. Universal has also put Gore Verbinski's adaptation of "Bioshock" on hiatus because of money concerns. So let's recap. The same company that doesn't have money for the amazing original property "Bioshock", does have the money to remake a dumbed down version of "Videodrome" as some sort of big budget action/sci-fi movie. Kind of gives you the warm & fuzzies, doesn't it?

It's being reported that Robert Rodriguez is aiming to shoot "Machete", the full version of his "Grindhouse" trailer, in June. Danny Trejo to star. This should be interesting.

In Real People News: 

Japanese pop star found naked in a public park in Tokyo, screaming his fool head off about how there was "nothing wrong with being naked". Certainly not. Carry on.

I'm not a huge science fiction fan, but I've seen enough of the films to know that anything being described as a "space blob" is bad news. Trust me.

On this day in history: 

1940: Heinrich Himmler gives orders to construct a concentration camp in Oswiecim, Poland. Only 14 months later, Auschwitz is open for business.

"Bioshock 2" First Look is Long, Spoilery

Just over a week ago I posted the first "Bioshock 2" game footage, and wondered aloud what sort of teases would come next. As it turns out, "tease" is not in Gamespot's vocabulary, as they've posted a video which at first look answers nearly every basic question that fans of the franchise have so far. Be warned, this video is slightly spoilery in terms of general story and gameplay, but definitely worth a look:

"Bioshock 2" Gameplay Footage, Finally!

The "Bioshock 2" news just keeps pouring in! After months of speculation as to what the game would look/play like, GameTrailers has posted the first gameplay footage, and needless to say, the mouth-foaming has begun:

Verbinski Skirts Pirates 4 for Bioshock

It's no secret that Gore Verbinski, director of the massively popular "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, has chosen to direct a screen adaptation of the game "Bioshock." Today however, brings us the news that he's apparently planning to focus so hard on the film that he's not going to be directing the fourth "Pirates" flick.

First Look at Bioshock 2's "Big Sister"

Last week, the "Bioshock 2" hype train officially left the station with the unveiling of There's Something in the Sea, an interactive collection of news clippings, photos, and other teasers for the upcoming game. This week, we get another sneak peak at some art from the upcoming game via the april cover of Game Informer magazine.


Big sis, little sis

There's Something in The Sea (Bioshock 2)

Nowadays, nothing builds anticipation for a high profile game or movie quite like a flashy viral campaign. I would argue that viral campaigns work better at their most cryptic, but I'm certainly not averse to a little tease here and there of what I should expect from an upcoming release.

"Bioshock" Replica Syringe Scares Me

Out of all of the stark imagery from the "Bioshock" game, the 'Little Sisters' may be the most unsettling. Upon first glance, they appear to simply be generic demon children from your average possession flick, until you notice the fact that they are carrying giant rusty syringes filled with ADAM, the precious genetic material of Rapture. As if the image of a gigantic syringe filled with glowing red gel isn't creepy enough, there's a baby bottle nipple on the end of the ADAM chamber so that the little sisters can imbibe the luminous goo; yikes!

PS3 owners should know by now that "Bioshock," the mega-atmospheric Xbox360 hit comes out for the "other" system next week, October 21st to be exact. Apparently, beating the game earns you a chance to to view the "Bioshock 2" teaser trailer. Thanks to the internet, you wont have to wait to buy and beat the game to see it! Excuse the poor quality, this is the best version online so far.
