article imageThe XBOX 360, Bioshock updates

By Aaron Robson     Feb 12, 2007 in Technology
Those that have been following Bioshock as closely as we have might possibly find themselves experiencing an emotion completely at odds with the ethos of Irrational’s organic, totally unscripted adventure FPS.
You might find yourself a bit bored of it even. For the last year Irrational have been greedily guarding its game, only allowing us to see a select few elements of gameplay. And although we love the Big Daddies, they were starting to feel a bit familiar. It felt like we knew everything there was to know. It felt like we could tell just by looking at them what they had for breakfast. We were starting to wonder if this was a one-trick pony. Until now.
We finally saw more of Bioshock, with a recent Microsoft presentation providing details on new enemies, new allies and more specifics on how Bioshock’s revolutionary “gene-splicing” RPG system works and operates. The only drawback is: the ecology of Bioshock ’s waterworld is so fragile that the behavioral patterns of Rapture’s latest inhabitants aren’t completely final, and thus Microsoft has requested that the media who were present are not to report on specifics just yet.
What we think we can comment on is how superb and fluid it looks. One of the new gene-splicing moves we saw in action required the flesh in our man’s arm to literally rip open, with a vomit-inspiring amount of bone and vein on display. But before the upchuck reaches your tonsils, the whole wound seals itself back up again in one seamless, beautiful motion.
From the sounds of Microsofts latest presentaton on Bioshock, they are really throwing most of their rocks into one basket. Or putting all of their eggs into one basket, my mistake. But it makes you wonder on how many people are going to see this piece of work a master piece rather than something to do while they wait for Halo 3 to finally come out.
Rathher dissapointed that the game is not going to be multiplayer, the game is already going to be a no buy for me. I'm sorry, but most the games I buy are multi player because I hate when you beat a game and then have nothing to do with it. So it sits at the back of my closet for 2 years until I pick it up again forgeting what happens or I just trade it in for another game once beating it. But that is just my opinion.
So we all know that this game is just going to be single player, but considering that it has no multiplayer and it is already being praised, this means that this game has to be some kind of miracle. Bit i also makes you think that if these guys are trying to hide some of the details, ithe game might be a little bit exagerated and they just want people to build hype.
But since the game is still being in the developing stage, we can only wonder about it.
