Bioshock


  I just started this blog at the end of last year, so i have missed a lot of things that were once relevant to me. Luckily i enjoy nostalgia. Bioshock was released on August 21, 2007. Honestly i can't even imagine it has been that long, but here we are. The game was released 2 years after xbox 360. While i was replaying i noticed a few things. 



1. The graphics are still really nice.
2. The combat controls it made were fantastic.
3. The setting is amazing. The game is based in the 1960s in an underwater city.






 The story starts with you(Jack) on a plane ride across the Atlantic ocean. suddenly the plane crash lands in the ocean. You happen to be the only survivor. You swim across to a light house you see in the middle of the ocean. There is a little sub inside that takes you underwater where you see the city of Rapture. Rapture is a place made by "Andrew Ryan". Ryan made this city to escape from the politics of the 1960's world. He says every man should be entitled to the work he does. 


So you end up getting contacted by a man named Atlas. All Atlas wants is to get his family and get out, and he needs your help. As you begin your adventure you find something called "Plasmids" These give you several different  powers that you get as you progress through the game. 




Plasmids are not all fun though. Most of the people of rapture have been turned into drug addicts who would do anything for more "Atom". Atom allows you to use plasmids. 






The game has a lot of story and is overall a very fun experience. Right now Bioshock: 2 is out and Bioshock Infinite is coming out this year. So if you haven't played the original i would recommend it

  1. I played some Bioshock demos on my Xbox 360 back at home and it seems great.
