    I just played the demo. That game is spectacular. The atmosphere.... the graphics... the gameplay... the LIGHTING! EVERYTHING in that game is stunning. In the beginning when you're swimming around, I didn't move at first because I swore it was a cutscene, the graphics just blew me away.

    It maybe nothing, but the website where I've pre-ordered BioShock has taken the money out of my account and the order tracking says it's being picked and packed. [face_thinking]

    Considering it's not supposed to be out here until the 24th, I'm a bit surprised.

    I honestly don't know if they're really posting it. The collectors edition I pre-ordered has sold out there, that might have something to do with it.

    I ordered from there. Did you use the 'Summerfun' voucher (£5 off a £30 spend) with your order, just out of interest?

    The collectors edition i ordered (couple of days ago) Now says out of stock in the order pane - if i do not get it on day of release I will murder someone/thing.

    No, no vouchers, just a normal order. The fact that they've taken the money and tracking my order suggests it's being sent. But then again, since it's sold out, it might just be to stop me cancelling the order.

    I guess I'll find out in a few days. :p

    I'll tell you what - if you do get it early I will give you money/sexual favours for the copy. Sound fair?

    :p

    I'm sure you can wait just a few more days before selling your soul. :p

    That's exactly how I felt when I first played the demo. If they keep up stuff like that throughout the game, this will surely be a masterpiece.

    Some reviews were posted and its look like a masterpiece so far...

    Gamespot is apparently lazy and doesn't even have a review up yet.

    I can't wait to review this game for my own blog.

    Gamespot is always the last to review everything.

    So I pre-ordered BioShock today (very late, I know) at Game Stop. What is weird is that they are taking more pre-orders than they have copies of the game. It's going to suck to have a pre-order only to find that they still don't have a copy for you. I'll be getting there very early on Tuesday.

    The Xbox 360 World magazine here gave it 94/10. The only criticisms they have is that below all the hype it's still a traditional FPS, the enemy AI isn't anything new. Apart from that it's a glowing review.

    I guess that can be true in a sense. Bioshock though is just so completely different and exciting that in my mind its just so much more then a traditional FPS.

    Look at that. Average score was 9.8, thats an average of TWELVE REVIEWS. And what does GS give it? 9.0... That is B*.

    Oh, some of you will get a kick out of this... you know who wrote the review? Jeff. The guy who ****ed up Twilight Princess' review too. Figures.

    I cant see why everyone is so hyped about this game. It doesnt look that good to me. Maybe its just not my kinda game.


    Im much more looking forward to assassins creed.

    Everyone says it is better than the best game ever. Therefore, it must be good.

    I may give it a try when I get my new comp. See what its like. I wouldnt be suprised if it is a good game.

    I mean I hate Zelda games, and there one of the "best" game series.

    A ton have people said Bioshock is better than the sum of its parts.... it may not look great from what you see, but its SPECTACULAR. I thought the same thing you did before I played the demo... now im dying to get it.

    Well, I got lucky in my Bioshock quest today. My local GameStop ran out of copies earlier this morning, but when I walked in the store about 20 minutes ago, they just got 3 more copies in. So now I have a copy in my grubby little hands!

    ^ Nice. I played the first hour of it a little while ago and going back to it in a bit. It's definitely interesting. If you don't explore and listen to what's around you; you will definitely not get the full experience of the game.

    This is truely something to marvel at.

    So how do they expect me to kill the big daddys to get to the little sister?

    Either way, this game is a must own, its pretty creepy and there's never a dull moment
