First look at the Bioshock LE Big Daddy figurine

Last week The Cult of Rapture gave everyone a sneak peek at our favorite part of the Bioshock LE, the Big Daddy figurine. 2K Games kindly posted a few pictures of the figurine in its "work in progress" stage including the artist's clay sculpted figure and the first paint job. Indeed, that Big Daddy figurine has sweetness written all over it. Though, we have to be sure to remember that the paint job and scale of the figurine aren't finalized just yet, but The Cult of Rapture promises to show off the final version before the game ships. Go ahead, take a look at the picture gallery below and admire the Big Daddy figurine in all its glory. You'll be glad you did.

Bioshock LE cover art design announced

Over on Bioshock's Cult of Rapture website they've wrapped up and announced the winning design for the Bioshock LE cover art contest. And out of over 150 entries, Adam Meyer's design (as seen to the right) came out victorious and will be etched onto the Bioshock LE metal cover for all to see. Adam will also cash in on the sweet reward, getting not only free copies of Bioshock, but also receiving an all expense paid trip to Bioshock's launch party. Congrats to you Adam, but about you choosing a friend to take with you on your trip. You know how to contact us, we're available anytime in August ... just give us a date.

Official details on the Bioshock LE


After getting 2K Games to create a limited edition version of Bioshock, fans then got a chance to vote on what they wanted in their precious LE. And after tallying up all the votes 2K Games just announced the LE specifics. The Bioshock LE will be available the same day as the regular edition (August 21st), sport an embossed case featuring the artwork of the cover art contest winner, and retail for $69.99. The LE will also include a "Making of" DVD, soundtrack CD, and a not so adorable Big Daddy figurine. It's also interesting to note that the Bioshock LE will be exclusively available at Gamestop and EB Games in the US and Canada with European details to come.

We're quite impressed with Bioshock's LE offerings, as we haven't seen a LE come this jam-packed with additional content for some time. Do you think all the extra goodies are worth $10 or will you be sticking to the regular edition?

We did it! Bioshock LE confirmed


Remember the people's Bioshock Limited Edition petition? You know, the one where 2K Games promised to create a LE if the online petition received 5,000 signatures? Well, the fruits of our labor have paid off, because 2K Games stuck to their word and officially announced a Bioshock LE! We have to say it, teamwork FTW! What's also nifty is that 2K Games is hosting an online poll to see what fans want included in this special LE. Do we want posters? How about a making of DVD? Or the mother of all sweetness, a big daddy figurine! You can check out the current poll tallies here. We did it guys, we got 2K Games to offer a Bioshock LE! Now we spend even more money on the game and fill their pockets with even more cash ... we rock!
