BioShock preview reveals tasty gameplay info


GameSpot has posted a lengthy preview for BioShock, the upcoming first person shooter from Irrational Games and 2K. We've seen our share of BioShock previews, but this one really focuses on the actual gameplay experience. In particular, the preview highlights the borderline survival horror aspect of the game, noting the literally insane AI of your enemies. If you've been wanting to get a feel for the things you will actually be doing in BioShock, it's a pretty good read. Be warned though, there are some minor spoilers contained in the preview, though there is nothing drastic.

If you've dismissed BioShock as "just another shooter," you should definitely check out the preview. August can't come soon enough.

Andy,

First of all, according to 2K, it's a PC/360 exclusive.

Second, stop spamming our comment threads just to start a flamewar.

"It is coming to PS3 as well so don't think this ones an exclusive."

Gather round, youngin's... this is a confirmed sighting of a PS3 fanboy. Judging by the console's sales, they're quite a rare breed indeed.

We should consider ourselves lucky that we got a chance to see one at all. You can best spot a PS3 fanboy playing Motorstorm, or one of the other 3 good games that are actually available on the platform.

Usually, they will also exhibit delusional behavior (such as claiming other console's exclusive titles are also being ported to their own), and they will also yammer on at length about how the "Cell processor" is so powerful it can warp the space-time continuum.

This "Andy" character should be tagged for further study.

Once upon a time it was also tentatively announced for PS3, but at E3 it was officially moved over to "exclusive" status and the PS3 version never spoken of again.

So I think you might as well just give up on that one lol.

itsburnsie, that was pure LOL. You need to add something about how poor their reproduction is ;) and how they are going extinct because of it. All in good fun, right?

This game is going to be awesome, that's probably why Andy is very hopeful.

However is hope is all in vain.

Not only is Andy hopeful, he is also a fucking idiot.

Yeah, it really does suck to be a PS3 fanboy.
