Bioshock 2 - Bored Yet?

I remember the hype associated with the expected release of Bioshock. It looked great, sounded great and promised new and interesting gameplay never-before-seen in an FPS.

I remember buying the game, getting it home to install and having so many problems it was unreal. The disk came with an installer that first downloaded the game from the web... great way to get around piracy guys!

I remember bug after bug after bug, I remember 2K Games blaming anyone and everyone from Microsoft to Nvidia, ATi, Via, Creative, Adobe for the problems with the buggy game they'd put out.

I remember giving up on the PC release and instead buying it on the Xbox 360. And waht a great game it was, for a while.

At about half way through the game became so unbelievably repetitive that I got so bored I gave up. I looked up the rest of the story online (the story was good) and put the game back on my shelf and never played it again.

Meanwhile my PC version of the game has been lost at some point, but this does not bother me.

So Now the teaser trailer for Bioshock 2 - Sea Of Dreams has been released. It depicts what appears to be a grown up 'little sister' character holding a Big Daddy doll, standing on a beach looking out to sea.
I really wish I found this intriguing enough to spend time thinking and theorising on what this could mean with regards to the plot of the new game, but I don't.

Anyway, feel free to watch the trailer and leave your thoughts below.



  1. It really is quite a rubbish trailer isn't it? And why give us a full ten seconds to read the words "Atlantic Coast"?

  2. Good point Santh.
    I guess they did that just to stretch the whole thing out a bit.
    I forgot to mention that the Bioshock 2 teaser trailer was originally unlocked upon completion of the Playstation 3 version of the original Bioshock game, released a week or two ago.
    Anyhow, I still think its going to be as bad as the first BS outing. Total BS.
