It's not easy to get access to the BioShock theater deep in the 2K Games booth, but if you can get in, you'll see one of the best games of the show. The creators of the seminal spooky shooter System Shock 2 are calling BioShock the “spiritual successor” to the 1999 award-winner, but other than the pedigree and approach, the games are totally different. And BioShock is almost certainly unlike any first-person shooter you've seen.
BioShock takes place underwater, in an abandoned,

It's not often promo footage has us squirming in our seat (and still wanting to play the game afterwards) but this BioShock teaser from Microsoft's X06 conference reel is just that kind of footage. Check the movies tab to watch it for yourself, but be aware it's very much intended for a mature audience.
Though it's not a gameplay sequence, it's representative of the uncomfortable situation you're forced into in BioShock - whether you can bring yourself to hunt Little
Irrational Games showed up at X06 packing a new build of the creepy first-person shooter BioShock, freshly confirmed as an Xbox 360 and PC exclusive title. We sat in on the presentation to learn whatever we could.
If you have seen the latest trailer of the game (it's here [PC, 360]on GamesRadar, and it's super disturbing, so you should), you see a little girl hiding in a tube. The first-person protagonist pulls her out and, while he is seemingly prepared to strike at the little girl he
Blood, fire, violence, crazy dames stabbin' people with hooks - that's what we wanna see in our games, so today's batch of Bioshock screenshots make us smile... even if we're kind of revolted at the same time. These screens of the first-person creepfest are specifically labeled as PC shots, but we saw the game running on Xbox 360 at E3, and we'd say they're a fair estimation of what you'll see on both systems. Just hit the Images tab above to see them all.
Bioshock's undersea world features a
Two new screens for BioShock, the underwater-set survival shooter, have surfaced showing off some new, gruesome looking mutant enemies and an underground facility location. You can see the redneck-esque nasties below, wearing what looks like a mask made of human flesh - or has he just lost part of his own face? - or hit the Images tab above to view the deep-sea
"We are going to drive a stake through the heart of FPS cliches." A declaration like this might normally seem arrogant, but Ken Levine, the Creative Director of the ambitious next-gen shooter BioShock, backs his words up with a gonzo demonstration. The narrated video that you can now see for yourself (by hitting the Movies tab at the top of the page) shows that Levine is serious about ending cookie-cutter AI, static environments and hallway-bound "rail shooters."
BioShock's story centers on
Anyone who sees anything more wonderfully weird than these new Bioshock screenshots over the weekend, let us know. A skateboarding blind gerbil with three legs doesn't count, by the
We've netted a brand new trailer of the unfathomably brilliant looking Xbox 360 and PC shooter, BioShock - paddle your way to the Movies tab above, launch the video player and find "BioShock - trailer 12-20-06" for another look at the neon-lit, underwater world of Rapture and some of its none-too-neighbourly mutated residents.
The filmic treat offers a glimpse at a Big Daddy, diving-suit heavy, protecting a corpse looting Little Sister; the player using telekinesis to hurl objects; and a
Irrational Games' Xbox 360 and PC FPS has been slapped with a confirmed release date of August 21.
This means the title has been delayed slightly - previously Bioshock had been given June release.
In Bioshock, players are taken to a failed utopia on the seabed where genetically modified humans have run
The latest trailer of PC and 360 shooter BioShock takes us on a mini tour of Rapture, the disturbing underwater city that the game's unlikely hero finds himself trapped in after surviving a plane crash in the middle of the ocean.
In the seven minutes of amazing footage we see examples of how not to take on a Big Daddy, some very impressive water effects and are also treated to a few examples of the genetic modifications you can utilize while fighting through the decaying art deco-styled
