2K Marin is formed mostly of ex 2K Boston and 2K Australia staff, so no worries. The same guys are making it.

I still have to play the first one lol. And that was an expensive buy compared to orange box, audiosurf etc.

I'm real interested in how they can make a true sequel out of Bioshock. The game had a very solid conclusion. :confused:

End of 2009? Geez . . . Oh well, I can't wait! Bioshock was a great game, not much replay value though.

Really? I've probably played it more than HL2 already.

If I would not be playing The Witcher right now, I might go through BioShock again. What a fabulous game that was. Entertaining, surprising, well-mastered, great sound.

I just hope this time around they up the difficulty more. Easy and normal were just too damn easy. Beat the game on both settings with just the wrench. Apart from that, i've replayed it about 15 - 20 times. Not as many as stalker though.

Hopefully they'll have multi in the sequel.

I hope the enemies are a little more varied and not some similar looking. Maybe some random facial feature selection as they are generated. PS3 version would be nice too.

Eh, honestly, I didn't care about the game not having multiplayer because the singleplayer was so good.

Same here. I want to play again, but my CD is badly scratched somehow. 2K is charging me $7 for replacement of CD. :bleh:

why did they close down two studios to create a new one?

They didn't. The guys who worked on BioShock are all in one studio now to work on the BioShock sequel. Those in the company who didn't work on the game are still there working on something else using the Unreal 3 engine.

That is of no consequence. The Wolph does not die in games.
