I’ll gush on and on about BioShock 2’s setting, ambiance and story with you all the live-long day, but for me, the best part of the game was the harvesting. Or rather, setting up traps, blasting waves of Splicers and defending ADAM-siphoning Little Sisters. Each one was like a fantastic, action-oriented crescendo moment, not unlike the experience of alerting a massive horde in Left 4 Dead. So needless to say, the upcoming Protector Trials DLC pack, which focuses on just that, looks right up my alley.

Projector Trials hits PSN and XBL on August 3rd to the tune of $5.00 (400MS), and it’s bringing along with it even more glorious methods of Big Dadditude (Did I really just write that?), only now in a more streamlined fashion, similar to the supplementary Zombie mode players loved the hell out of in Call of Duty: World at War. Defending a harvesting Sister now unfolds in tiers with all new weapon-specific challenges where strategy will earn players more cash and more firepower. If that weren’t enough, the DLC will also feature six condensed single-player maps and seven new Achievements/Trophies. Happy Harvesting, to abiding men and slaves alike!
