Listening to Ken Levine talk about games is like what it must have been like to hear Orson Welles talk about movies a half-century ago.

Pretty stoked as I got this free of charge (together with Crysis 3) with my new video card. Not only is the new card a beast, but the games I got are really beginning to grow on me. At first I was like, yeah, whatever, Crysis 3, thats cool, since I've liked alle the previous iterations, but Bioshock. Meh. Didn't finish the first one ( which is strange because I am the kind of guy that loves these unusual titles.) Every video I watch though gets me more and more excited for this title. It seems to be really well made and attentive to detail. I have it preloading as we speak. Thank good for bundles, right? =)

So Liz wears a very "open" shirt around a guy she doesn't really know? Also, consider the ages. I'm not for censorship or anything like that, but kind of unrealistic from my view? Just saying. Game still looks incredible & to bring up the "boob" complaint is dumb, but just find it oddly placed in the game.

Interesting that they don't have Elizabeth in her new outfit, which I think looks better.  They also made her act a lot like Rapunzel in Tangled during a developer commentary video of her on a beach and how they programmed her AI to interact with the world around her.

I really must stop watching these preview videos, they just make the wait that much longer.

Anyone else here think that Kevin Levine looks like Steve Carrell's older brother?

this is sounding and looking really great....I'm glad rapture was left behind...I'm impressed with how original this setting is...proves Rapture wasn't all they had in those creative brains of theirs

The more I see / read about this game, the more excited I get.  Might be the first game in a while that I purchase without waiting for some crazy Steam sale.

Let me get this straight, anti-usa, blatant anti-religion to the point where a staff resigns, combined with a "cartoony" look and feel, and the absence of "rapture"? Sorry, another game i wont be buying. How can you admit that a staff member quits over your own ignorance? Why do games feel the need to attack religion and culture. What happened to making good games with imagination. Why do they have to attack? Oh and don't get me wrong, as far as cartoons go, this game looks incredible, but.. oh and the lead girl didn;t need giant boobs. I get it, young males want to look at boobs. Must i be hit over the head with boobs constantly. When i want that, i ask for it from my wife.

This game look really great. But for me has too much USA culture propaganda. Like much movies or videogames that in the end USA saves the day this is not for me im no kid anymore im kind of sick of that brainwash and im no muslim who hates america.

@skipper847 you have to change something to get the sound to work. i forgot what i did. look it up on google.

@Jakesta7 Well you have to remember that she's lived a very sheltered life and most probably has no concept of "sex" or anything related. Then bring up her relationship with Songbird, who's probably the ones who picks out her clothes as well, she's just like a child without an inkling of the outside world, wearing whatever her "parent" gives her and is not bothered at all with running half naked in public.

@dralutfi it´s a cool game franchise that kinda plays with your mind and really gets you on the edge.

@fishforme2 Have you even played Bioshock 1 and or 2 both of them were anti-culture and anti-religion.  Ryan despises the US and the Bolsheviks that are taking it over.  As for religion under Ryan it was forbidden.  Smugglers were killed over bibles.  As for Elizabeth's boobs a lot of the footage is old.  Levine the sellout said that due to complaints her breasts would be smaller and more covered.  I am sorry to see infinite is getting a make over due to people like you wanting in censored.  This may very well be my last Bioshock which kills me as it is one of the greatest games ever invented.

@fishforme2 Not sure where you get the idea games are made for 14 year olds. That hasn't been true for a long time. I am also a very religious person, that said religion is full of twisted people that take parts of faith and bend it to their own extreme believes. That has been true all throughout history with lots of different religions. 

  Mankind has a built in need to worship something, to look beyond themselves. There are other men in the world that with sly words and works take advantage of a person's spiritual need. From my impression of the interview that was what the game was going for. Ken Levine was trying to understand a religious zealot that uses faith to justify the horrors he commits and the people that follow him. Cult leaders basically.

  I do not consider this an insult to true Christians, for every Christian out there that honestly tries to live in accordance with Christ commandments there 10 more that are hypocrites that make the real Christians look bad. Jesus himself said this would happen. His illustration of the Weeds and the Wheat was referring to that very subject. (Mathew 13:24-30 and 36-43)

  Lets at-least see the full product before getting offended at perceived insults.

@fishforme2 

The staff member didn't quit.  The interview exists to say that they had a discussion that led to a change in the scene/character's motivations. :/

@fishforme2 They are not attacking religion directly. However, I do believe they are attacking zealots that do terrible things in the name of religion.

@fishforme2 you know some real women in real life have really big boobs ?

you might never saw some, but they exist.

and btw. you are the one who is downgrading a mature subject into dust.

take it or get off.

@mruizinho You seem intelligent, but you have to consider where games are made and by whom. everyone wants to paint themselves as the 'good guys' or heroes. It's only natural they do. But perhaps the muricans more so than other people. imo.

fishforme2

@DVONvX Its a fine line between calling out a zealot, and stereotyping. Considering games are made for 14 year old's, it a balancing act that should not be undertaken without consideration.

Oh and since this is America, i choose to voice my opinion. Feel free to buy the game without me being upset! :)

@limbomaster @fishforme2 Actually, i've seen more boobs then a plastic surgeon, big ones too. Putting big ones in games is fine, but don't besmirch the Bioshock name with them.

@petez34 @mruizinho I know that but games r made for a worldwide public so the games should be more impartial. For instance movies like armaggedon or independence day r an insult for the rest of the world, who have always to depend on america, ok thats ok for many people but personally i dont like it.

I dont hate usa, but i just dont follow blindly america propaganda from all kind of media.

@fishforme2 You can't just disagree that this game is made for adults. The rating is on the box. if you let 14 year olds play this then it's you who is to blame when they can't understand the content. And its hardly "anti-American" pointing out that the USA was and still is (to an extent) extremely racist. Ignoring that is ignorant and only serves to make the issue worse.

@DVONvX @fishforme2 we'll agree to disagree.

@fishforme2 @DVONvX I don't think the game is stereotyping. The story is trying to show you what happens when religion is taken too far by a group of people. This has happened many times in history, with terrible consequences. Also, I disagree that games are made for 14 year olds. This particular game is made for adults, thus the theme, also why it is rated "mature."

@limbomaster @fishforme2 its not that bad, thow I watched some serious shit on national geographic about a shitshow in california.

@fishforme2 in america your opinion is not worth  a shit. thats why people on streets get beaten up by "authoritys" for no reason.


the church is raping children systematically.  they destroying lifes and still getting away with it. the  America you talking about is the worst place when it comes to child abuse in any shape or form.

mr. levine is  questining subject you dont even wanna think about. you feel threatend by something you think you understand, but dont.

and btw (again) you probably live in U.S.A , if yes, say so, because america is not ,ade of you alone.even mehicanos and brazils are american, even columbians, hell even canadians.

@plasticreality @mruizinho @petez34
