Bioshock- the Movie

One thing I really miss about my XBox 360 (which is a non functioning heap two times around) is the game Bioshock. Movie looks like it might be worth a watch. If the trailer is any indication the creepy musical score that gave the game it's eerie depth made it into the production.

Enjoyed that! The seeds have been sown for a viewing upon release ...

Otto, the concept is a perverted semblance of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. The game was, perhaps, the finest in terms of pure immersion and heralded the introduction of pure mind-fuck conflated with moral dilemma. It was brilliant. The movie, however well done, will be a shadow of the game.

Jay@Soob : I'm old - school (PS2), so I kinda regret not purchasin' an XBox 360. Saw the trailers to the game & they were great! Might consider acquirin' it this summer (place where I'm puttin' up offers pirated copies of DVD games...oops!), the Ridge Racer series are just AWESOME.

What's the hell's the matter with your game console?

Wow, I have no idea what just happened. The trailer had absolutely no plot. Ive never played the game so maybe that's part of it.

Y, first box shat the bed in the first month. Replaced it on warranty. 2nd box shat the bed just after warranty ran out. I won't buy anything MS if I can help it.
I'd suggest you stick w/Sony. I've had my PS3 for two years now and it's solid.

Reivan, yeah some background w/ the game makes the trailer easier to understand.
