Default Bioshock

Friend of my brother's was a lucky enough bastard to get a copy of Bioshock from Toys R Us today, after they went and botched the street date. Let me tell you, this game is incredible. However, while it is a shooter, it is not for the weak-hearted. It's a shooter with rpg elements in it, so if you're not looking to get sucked in by the story and atmosphere, go play something else.

Oh sweet. Been waiting for that game for ages now.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Yeah. The TRUs here in the States went and broke the street date, and some select people were lucky enough to take advantage of this before they got a $5,000 per copy fine slapped on them from 2k Games. My brother's friend was one of those lucky few, and since they went somewhere yesterday, that left me and the 360 alone with a copy of BioShock.

Suffice to say you all should be happy that I took the few moments away from that masterpiece to write this. It transcends being called 'game'. It really is a work of art. While, mind you, I am horribly biased being that I've been waiting for this game since the day it was announced, no less since I beat System Shock 2.

It looked really cool and I want to play it but that requires I spend $400 on a new video card and ram or $400 on an xbox 360. So no playing Bioshock for me.

Question for you, how far are you in the game, and how many little girls have you killed...

Beaten it like four times now.

Both endings, had some serious trouble with the Harvest ending. I just have trouble harvesting the poor things now that I know what's what.

I can't play it

My video card is too old to run it. Time for an upgrade I think as Bioshock is one of at least 4 demos/games that have come out that I can't run.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
