I only started playing Bioshock for the first time the other day and I have to say that this game is brilliant. Being able to alter your genetic code to enhance your body with varying powers is cool. The music is great, it really fits into the game perfectly.

Yep cool game. I enjoyed playing it 4 years ago with the rest of the regular people.

Finally? I always see it for like $20 or $30. Australia must suck.

I've never played it, but I would like to. Not enough games on 360 for me to pay $300. All I'd want is Bioshock, Dead Rising, Assassin's Creed, and Ninja Gaiden.

Its been $80 up for a long time down here. Its like $40 now or $50 for it in a double pack with Oblivion.

The 360 has stacks of good games on it. Its worth forking out the cash for one.

It's a greatest hits now so it should be 30 and under all times.

My friends and my brother all play FPS games which don't interest me that much. So I don't even know what's available other than that genre.

Classic titles down here tend to be about $50.

The 360 has some decent RPG titles.

Not a big fan of RPG's either.

I guess more casual games. Or ones that take a small amount of time to complete but have nice enough gameplay to warrant replays. I need to get into more adventure games like Metroid and the Castlevania games molded after the Metroid style.

Right now, the games I mostly play are hack and slash type stuff or simplistic fighters. Platforming games are really fun as well. I've put the most time into Onechanbara, Geometry Wars, Punch Out, and Lego Indiana Jones on Wii if that gives any indication. Having a lot of fun with the new Dragonball game and Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution.

I guess I'm not too picky, but I'm not big on shooters or in depth RPGs. The former generally relies heavily on a multiplayer aspect which I rarely venture into, and I just don't have the time to sink into huge adventures.

N3, Too Human and Devil May Cry 4 are all a bit hack and slash in their ways. I'm not big on the hack and slash type games.

Bioshock isn't really a FPS. It's more like a FPA akin to Metroid.

You don't get to decide what is implied.

Since I was the one doing the typing, yeah, I'm pretty sure I know what was implied.

loxxy, there's also Crackdown which is a 360 exclusive. I love Crackdown Love It's like GTA but you play as a cop instead of a criminal, and you have super-strength and speed and can jump really high. The more you play, the more your powers increase, and eventually you can completely leap over small skyscrapers. It's fun to simply roam around the city collecting orbs, and you can also drive a number of cars, as well as bust different gang lords and such, all while listening to the narrator's commentary. It's good fun Happy


One other small thing I like about it is since you move the camera constantly with the right stick, you can jump by pressing down on the right stick, which is something that I think should be in every first/third person shooter. It's so much more intuitive than pressing the A button or whatever, and quickly moving back to the stick to aim.

If you get to the end is he really the narrator? Shock

Not really an issue for this game, most of the time I'd lock on to a body part so I wouldn't have to aim.

The ending really pissed me off, and almost made me never want to play the game again. I'm glad there's a sequel coming so I can see what happens next.


It's true that lock-on takes care of a lot of that, but it's still a nice feature to have. Especially when you're not fighting anyone, and are just trying to jump to the top of a building or mountain or whatever.
