219w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has posted up the first video of their FAQ on BioShock for the PS3 console.

To quote: We FINALLY got the invite up to 2K Games Marin to talk to the BioShock 2 team, and what better timing than a week away from the game's release on Feb. 9.

We certainly gathered by your abundance of Tweets that excitement for BioShock 2 is crazy high.

So on Monday, I sat down with Senior Producer Melissa Miller and Lead Environment Artist Hogarth de la Plante (with a chillingly lifelike Little Sister standing eerily behind us) who answered a heap of your questions - so many in fact that we had to split the video into two parts.

So today, you'll see part one that focuses primarily on BioShock 2's single-player campaign, including details on story development, philosophical influence, plasmids and much more. And head on back tomorrow for part two, which delves deep into the much-anticipated multiplayer mode.

223w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi is back in the new year with Qore Episode 20, which features Dante's Inferno, Heavy Rain, Bayonetta and BioShock 2 for Sony's PS3.

There's also an interactive quiz built into this episode that will determine your degree of sinfulness.





We've been keeping an eye on Heavy Rain since the Qore team's first visit back in 2008. And, as promised, Quantic Dream has crafted a film-noir world that is both graphically impressive and psychologically disturbing.

As you play the part of four different characters whose lives intertwine on the trail of a serial killer, your every decision has an effect on the story around you. This extensive preview also includes an interactive cinema demonstration of the consequences of a few of...

227w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video walkthrough today on the PlayStation Blog for BioShock 2 on PS3 which showcases some new gameplay features.

To quote: This week's Q1 PlayStation Showcase didn't just feature Sony-published games; a number of publishers brought along heavily-anticipated titles to show on PS3 and PSP.

241w ago - Today 2K Games released the first look at BioShock 2's multiplayer mode on GameTrailers TV.

The multiplayer takes place during the fall of Rapture, the underwater city where BioShock and its sequel are set. Players are apparently Sinclair Solutions test subjects who have turned on each other.

They'll use a variety of tonics, plasmids, and good old fashioned firearms to take out opponents. In addition to all the fireballs and shotguns, there's also going to be turrets. Oh, and players will be able to transform into a Big Daddy and steamroll everyone.

BioShock 2's multiplayer development is being handled by Digital Extremes while 2K Marin focuses on the single-player. The game's due in the first half of 2010.

The video's caption reads as follows: Join the battle under the sea as any of these genetically modified characters!
