    Quite possibly one of the most anticipated games of 2009, BioShock 2 has finally been given a set date from publishers 2K Games. Set for a simultaneous release on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC on October 30th 2009 internationally, while North America will have to wait another few days for their release on the 3rd November.

    I quite enjoyed the first one. It gave the 8800GS I used to own a workout. :)

    It says an international release of October 30th, so one would assume that means everywhere.

    Except US for some reason :confused:

    Its not that man. I just dont think its right for someone to come into someone else's thread and say "Don't read this one on the subject. Read mine" and not give any credit to the original thread/poster. In fact it could be considered rude.

    I give credit where its due, but I found it myself, came across your thread after I posted it, was looking to post in the "9 min Bioshock" thread.

    If you have a good story, send it in, or PM a news mod. I'll always reply :)

    Lol, no need to get like that.

    Its the same as I always say, leave news posting to news posters. No point having two discussions over it. If you were the one who had told me of it I would have posted it. I found it myself on Fudzilla.

    Stop threatening to stop posting news mailman! You've made several threads with a bunch of info I'd never have found otherwise.

    Revision and mountains of work for exams set in after I reinstalled windows (I hate upgrade editions, particularly when the XP disk doesn't install XP properly).

    well theres a news email addy you're supposed to email news to, or PM a news poster in order to get the credit. if they post one without checking every related thread in the forum, they're gunna miss you - and a mod (not a newsposter) later on will lock/redirect your thread - if i redirect a thread, i cant edit the original post since i'm not a news poster so you wont get credit.

    I would make some tea but someone might take credit for it.

    I stopped doing that long ago because several stories I found were posted with no credit to me. Now Alex comes along and says "Don't look at his. Look at mine" and doesn't even have the decency to mention my thread a day earlier.
