    Bioshock 2 to turn back the clock?

    Rumour has it that Bioshock 2 is currently under development at 2K Games' Czech studio, but it won't be a straightforward sequel. We really hope this rumour is true....

    Seeing Rapture in all its former glory would be all kinds of awesome. Here's hoping this'll happen!

    I hope they scrap the crappy protection system that only let you install it x times....

    Or just make it a straight to dl game, and release it on steam

    Re: Bioshock 2 to turn back the clock?

    This should be interesting seeing Rapture in its former glory. Hopefully this one will be playtested to the max and we won't see old bugs resurfacing. Love Bioshock even though it is extremely buggy, currently playing through again at the min and it has me hooked more than ever!

    if that city was still all intact and functional and complete and stuff... you could imagine that maybe they can make it some kind of online chatroom thingie where they have all these different places in the city, and each place actually serves a purpose, just like in a real city

    Re: Bioshock 2 to turn back the clock?

    Whoow, looking forward to that, still on 1st play-though of Bioshock and am getting quite sad as I just know the next game I get will not be this GOOD!

    Yes game is a bit buggy on boot up, and I took a fair while just to get some sound working on my VIsta machine, however its such a brilliant game, I just love the idea of the tape recordings, you can carry on playing whilst getting plot immersion, I usulally hate watching a boring 5 minute cut scene with bad voice-overs when I want to be actually playing the game.

    I am rescuing all the sisters this play though, but wil play it again and Harvest them all next time.

    Re: Bioshock 2 to turn back the clock?

    I dont recall having too many problems with bugs when I played it on my Vista PC...but then I do tend to be rather forgiving with these things if the game is good. That or Crysis might have wiped over all my previous memories of buggyness.

    I'm looking forward to deja vu moments where you see bits that you remember half destroyed from the current game. I wouldnt say no to multiplayer either if its done well...

    It may be ok now that its on v1.2 (i think)...but when I played it on release it was certainly the buggiest game I'd played in a while. Just my humble opinion of course.

    Another thought on the Bioshock prequil - perhaps this one might have multiple endings too, with some leading to the downfall of Rapture and others not.

    Re: Bioshock 2 to turn back the clock?

    Wouldn't mind seeing Rapture at the time of its creation, say possibly playing from Andew Ryans point of view and battling with the civil war within Rapture and progressivly its downfall.

    Re: Bioshock 2 to turn back the clock?

    Damn! I loved Bioshock. I played it through killing the little girls for Adam. Once done I played it straight through again saving he girls. Just so I could see both endings

    I'd certainly welcome a sequel in any form.

    Oh, justa note to say I didn't find Crysis buggy except that I couldn't finish the game. The last boos that came out of hte sea? I couldn't lock on with the rifle. I check forums to see if I was doing it right, but it just didn't work

    Happened to me too. That was one of the more annoying bugs. It kept doing it until I restarted the level (or maybe the one before...cant remember) from scratch. I guess the saved game had screwed up somehow.
