    Life came from non living matter...the cells in your body ultimately came from carbon atoms that were formed by fusing helium/hydrogen atoms inside stars

    "The seaweed is always greener in somebody else's lake" Now how exactly am I supposed not to read an article with a tagline like this?

    just played System Shock 2 ................... i liked it but it wasn't anything special ............. and so, BioShock to me isn't special. What's next? UnderShock?

    can big daddies take off the suits? If so that's probably how they eat.

    All these plot holes and more and the story is still considered to be great. That just shows how terrible game stories are overall.

    They're not plot holes. They're just unexplained details. A plot hole is an unexplained portion of the main overarching plot. There's always unexplained or underexplained details in sci-fi and fantasy works. To blame the work for them and make it seem worse is just silly and unfair to it. Would you prefer if it took the time to explain every needless little detail to the player?

    Exactly what Gilgamesh310 doesn't get.

    The audio diaries are explained in the tie-in novel (BioShock: Rapture). Andrew Ryan wanted to create a recorded document of his creation and urged the citizens to record their daily thoughts on the Accu-Vox units. Obviously, the citizens kept up their habits after the Rapture civil war set in. For the record, I highly recommend the novel if you're at all interested in the history of Rapture. In fact, the novel is kind of a collection of extended audio diaries. Really a great read and I'm someone who thought video game tie-in novels were kind of lame. That is no longer the case.

    1) SCIENCE!!!! 2) I would assume for military or security purposes, what better way to subdue a hostile force or angry mob than launch a butt-ton of angry bees on them? 3) Its probably nutrients injections or something, I don't know, SCIENCE!!!! 4) They got lost and scattered when the Civil War broke out and everyone went bat-shit crazy 5) It may not have cost anything is all the supplies and labour came from his followers who were promised a place in Rapture 6) The Mid-Atlantic Ride is a constructive plate margin, meaning that they are moving away from each other so there is no friction produced to cause earthquakes 7) ENGINEERING!!!!!!!!! 8) SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Haha, on the subject of the insect plasmid, I've always wondered why the brilliantly twee 40's style introductions to each plasmid - which I can only assume are the official adverts - specifically point out how useful they'd be for burning/freezing and shattering/swarming your enemies. I know Rapture's all about going beyond the limits of accepted society, but if your alternative specifically enshrines killing all those who oppose you then you're gonna run out of people. On that note, why are there vending machines everywhere that sell live ammunition like it's no big deal? Again, I get that Rapture encourages the 'every man for himself' philosophy but seriously, El Ammo Bandido? It's like they WANT kids to be packing heat. In fact, even their regular vending machines are pretty worrying; they're full of first aid kids and ammo as well, with one token candy bar option. What if you just want a can of Coke? Rubbish. Also, why is the currency US dollars? I'm not an economist by any stretch of the imagination but Ryan seems like the kind of guy who might wanna be in direct control of his city's currency. I suppose having an ostensibly finite supply of money supports his apparent goal of turning everyone in his city into a self-centred dick.

    Good God I've been waiting for this for 5 years....... It hasn't yet hit me that it's almost here, but when I boot the game up it will hit me like a train and I'll be enthralled for 20 hours straight.

    Still this game series make you think about how all this functions underwater.

    i hope they focus on the multiplayer this time. single player is good but it gets boring after 10hours, with multiplayer is different everytime.
  • christian-shaffer - March 20, 2013 7:52 p.m.

    They announced they took multiplayer out a while ago.
