    Take-Two (finally) makes EA do a re-do

    EA has been after Take-Two since late last year. The process went public in February with Take Two letting EA’s offer expire five times. Now, EA has finally given up on its attempts to acquire Take Two at around $25-26 per share. The deal would have been worth around $2 billion, however Take Two has held fast that the offer was too low. It looks like EA is finally going to listen and take… Read More

  • Video: Bioshock trailer for PS3

    http://videomedia.ign.com/ev/ev.swf Bioshock is arguably one of the best FPS games and it’s also one of the scariest f’in things to play too. I started playing Bioshock again last night and I remember why I put it away in the first place. The game freaks me out and makes me so tense that my neck starts to hurt. Yeah, I know, I’m a big baby, but whatever. PS3 owners have… Read More

    2K talks about PS3's Bioshock survivor mode


    Attention PS3 owners- Those of you waiting for the month of October to roll around so you can get your hands on Bioshock are in luck, sort of. The 2K Marin crew have detailed a new mode that’s exclusive to the Sony platform and you can either listen to the podcast, read the transcript or check out the Q&A (after the jump) to find out all about it. From the brief glossing over I did… Read More

  • Live: 2K briefing

    Bioshock
    This isn’t a press conference, but I’m hearing about a whole new slew of games from 2K. I missed the beginning of the Bioshock demo, but it looks like there will be DLC very soon. Challenge rooms are the hot new item where you can solve a series of puzzles to unlock trophies. The demo I saw required the player to help a little sister get off of a ferris wheel using… Read More

    BioShock’s lead programmer talks about the failures behind making the hit game

    At this year’s Paris GDC Chris Kline, the lead programmer at 2K who worked on BioShock, talks about how the game should have failed. As we all know the game didn’t fail, but Chris goes on to explain that the mistakes and corrections made along the way are the reason the game turned out so well in the end. Read More

    2K removes BioShock install limit (but SecureROM still present)

    2K Games has removed an annoying piece of its DRM restrictions in the PC version of BioShock, a game I refuse to play because of its violent content. While SecureROM and all that other DRM goodness remain, you’re no longer limited to the number of PCs you can install the game in. A victory for freedom, to be sure. Seriously, how do you PC gamers put up with all that DRM nonsense? It… Read More

    Source: BioShock coming to iPhone

    I’ve been saying for awhile now that the iPhone and iPod touch are going to make a fantastic gaming platform after WWDC next month. The motion tracking and multitouch are just perfect for casual games, but now it looks like FPS games are coming to Apple’s handsets as well. Stuart from Pocketgamer talked with IG Fun’s Sean Malatesta who told him that they were working on an… Read More

    Further details on BioShock's PS3 debut revealed


    Not the actual cover art I still play BioShock during the day with all the lights on. It’s a freaky game that continues to make my heart beat like mad. As a 360 owner I can brag to my friends who own a PS3 that MS’s console has at least two exclusive titles that blow anything the Sony platform has to offer. That number will soon dwindle down to one and leave Gears of War to… Read More

    BioShock for PS3 confirmed

    There aren’t exactly any details at the moment to back up this claim, but the UK’s Playstation magazine, PSM3, is promising an in-depth preview along with screenshots according to CVG. No word on when the popular Take-Two title will be available for the Sony platform, but, as usual, we’ll keep a lookout for you PS3 fanboys. Read More

    Hell yes: Gore Verbinski to direct Bioshock movie


    Basically, I’m just glad that Uwe Boll didn’t get it. The director of Pirates of the Caribbean, among other films, has been signed on to direct the Bioshock movie, and will be working with John Logan, who wrote “Gladiator” and adapted “Sweeney Todd.” These are good choices because the director is familiar with spectacle and effects and likely has people… Read More

    CrunchArcade: Bioshock coming to PS3?

    Several pieces of evidence point to an eventual port of Irrational’s magnum opus to the Playstation 3. Most compelling is the bit of code in the PC port listing PS3 settings. It’s expected to arrive in the fall, around the same time Bioshock 2 might be announced. There are murmurs of improved graphics, but I think that’s probably nonsense. Being a little behind the times, I… Read More

    Ok, maybe I’m not that excited but Take-Two/Rockstar is planning to release Bioshock 2 and another “major” sequel in 2009. Folks are postulating it will be Max Payne, which I kind of dug back in the day. How about the The Legend of Kage 2, guys. I love the trees! Massive sequel planned after GTA IV [CaVG] Read More

    Ben Heck turns Xbox 360 into laptop, again

    Ben Heck can mod like a mofo, but is he a one trick pony? Don’t get me wrong. I was thoroughly impressed by his modded Xbox 360 laptop last year, but transforming an Elite into a laptop, again, is not that cool. Not that I could do it, but I think you see the point. If you want to try your hand at possibly FUBARing your Xbox then feel free to do so thanks to Ben’s thorough… Read More

    Big Daddy suit for sale on eBay

    The Big Daddy suit has now come full circle. From an odd Halloween costume to a VGA-feted wonder-thing, it has been through a lot and now it’s for sale on eBay. Bidding starts at $999 but expect it to go for more than that. I hear the Society for Creative Ayn Randianisms is nosing around as is a Bay Area cosplay fetish club. Has someone been good this Christmas? Product Page Read More

    Spike Awards special guest: Big Daddy


    My buddy Nathan Sharratt, the guy who made the Big Daddy/Little Sister costume with his girlfriend last Halloween just showed up on Spike TV last night, helping accept BioShock’s Best Game award. It just goes to show you that a little obsessive attention to detail and some plastic tubing can take you quite far. Read More

I never realized he was such a good crazed-undersea welder/Little-Sister-protector maker. Not many people are, so it’s nice to find someone with that talent. via CollegeHumor Read More
