BioShock goes gold, special surprise tonight

That's right kids, the highly anticipated underwater adventure that is BioShock has officially gone gold and is off to manufacturers to be pressed to disc. Elizabeth over at The Cult of Rapture announced BioShock's gold status with plenty of excitement and the occasional "WOO!". Also announced was that tonight, Sunday, August 12th at 9:00PM eastern, they'll be airing an exclusive 60 second BioShock trailer during Spike TV's "The Kill Point". And, from the sound of things, it'll be the debut of a never before seen, brand new BioShock trailer. But we can't be sure. Oh, Elizabeth also mentioned that Game Head's Geoff Keighley will be making a surprise announcement right after the trailer airs. What oh what could the news be? ...

@6 and thats why bioshock is a game thats designed around an immersive single player experience, unlike halo which has a pathetically dull single player, and only a moderate multiplayer.

Halo fanboys.

/sigh.

'the occasional "WOO!". Also announced'

I'm sick of people not knowing how to properly use Mr. Period and Mrs. Quotation. It should just be "the occasional 'WOO!' Also announced."

@Niyx
Halo Combat Evolved had a fantastic single player, and if it didn't, it wouldn't have gotten as popular as it has today. Things don't just get huge world wide for no reason. Although Halo 2's single player can be argued as slightly dull, but still...i'm the optimistic type and i'm assuming bungie is making sure it doesn't suck.

Bioshock fanboys..

sigh

Disclaimer: Nothing against Bioshock, i'm excited for it and hoping it'll be great, but no one has played it yet... so why compare it to halo?

"pathetically dull single player, and only a moderate multiplayer"

Agreed for Halo2, Halo1 will always be great to me however, and hopefully, Halo3 will be too (from the beta i already like it more than halo2).

@14- It's simple, you will be given choices. How else do you think is possible? It's a video game!

Wow, thanks for that in-depth explanation of how the little sisters are somehow saved simply by not killing them.

Seriously though, I haven't heard much about how we can actually save the people rapture.

If you guys kept up with 360 fanboy you would realize that uk oxm gave bioshock a perfect score.

It will be an incredible game,and why must every xbox game be compared to halo right away? Come on people, just let games stand for themselves. You dont see people comparing movies like Anchorman to Casablanca, cant they both be good in their own way?

Comparisons are always gonna be drawn to Halo when FPS are involved. But Halo fanboys are always the ones who draw the comparisons because they refuse to believe anything could be better. But I agree that comparisons shouldnt be drawn between the two, Bioshock is an immersive interactive FPS and so the single player matters so much more. Halo and alike are reactive FPS and basically demand multiiplayer to give you anything beyond a linear single player story. Either way Ill be buying Bioshock and Halo 3 and I know Ill have a great time playing both and enjoying the vastly different experiences the games will offer

Thank you, and I would like everyone to know that I have both Bioshock and Halo 3 reserved and paid off. I know that 8/21 will make the wait for 9/25 seem alot shorter.
