242w ago - GameSpot has managed to get a preview on BioShock 2, and have reported that things are heading in the right direction with some interesting new elements added.
If you are a fan of the original, then there will be plenty of reasons to check out this sequel. They have also added a bunch of new BioShock 2 screenshots HERE with a few available below.
To quote: Based on our early look at BioShock 2, the sequel seems like it's headed in the right direction. It seems to be covering the bases it needs to in order to give the fans what they want, while also tossing in some intriguing new stuff.
We're anxious to see how the new, old big daddy really handles and exactly how the big sister fits into the action. It should also go without saying that we're also looking forward to exploring more of Rapture and seeing just where the story is going to go.

264w ago - 2K Boston Assistant Producer Keith Shetler shared the following via PS Blog today:
Hey there! What's that you say? You love challenging gameplay... and failed underwater utopias?
Then prepare to experience the world of Rapture like never before with the BioShock PS3 Challenge Rooms Add-On Content pack available tomorrow, November 20, for $9.99 only on the PlayStation Network.
I'm Keith Shetler, Assistant Producer at 2K Boston, and I'm very excited to introduce two new play modes with this DLC pack: New Game Plus and Challenge Rooms. Both add new twists to the game millions already love!
New Game Plus allows you to start a new supercharged playthrough of BioShock. Ready for this? You begin the game with any weapons, abilities, and inventory that you collected during a previous playthrough. Always wish you could obliterate Dr. Steinman with your uber grenade launcher? Now you can!
Challenge Rooms are another beast altogether. These are puzzle rooms where the objective is to rescue a Little Sister. Sounds easy enough, right? Dead wrong! Whether it's fighting a Big Daddy without any weapons or surviving room after room of Splicers, Challenge Rooms require equal amounts brain and brawn in order to succeed.
266w ago - 2K Games has outlined its plans for the announced downloadable content coming to BioShock for the PlayStation 3.
On November 20, fans of splicing can pay $9.99 for three self-contained Challenge Rooms. The new rooms also offer PlayStation Trophies for clever solutions to the problems they present. The description of the rooms straight from 2K Games follows:
A Shocking Turn of Events - A Little Sister is trapped atop a Ferris wheel in an undisclosed location in Rapture. Using only the tools and environment around them, players must use their wits to create electricity to power the Ferris wheel and bring the Little Sister to safety.
The I in Team - Using limited resources, and an even more limited arsenal, players must negotiate traps and find a way to defeat a Big Daddy using their wits instead of raw firepower.
Worlds of Hurt - Step up and take on the most grueling challenge offered in the world of Rapture. Players must battle through eight rooms of Big Daddies, Splicers and the worst that Rapture has to offer. Accumulate Adam, build an arsenal of Plasmids, Tonics and Weaponry, and fight through to rescue the Little Sister.
$10 is becoming a standard price for meaty downloadable content, but we'll have to see just how much substance there is...
