    I have the anime film here and...crap it is. It's better than Heavy Metal 2000 but that's not saying much. I agree with the detail and structuring of the HL story and I like the "Episode" model Valve has been doing.

    You come back with less health and less eve .... other games you just reload to an earlier point. Surely having less is a penalty?

    The game for me was about the storyline. Listen to all the tapes. The fact that you could use WASD to move about was a bonus, I thought of it as more of a storyline which they let you walk through. Loved it.

    bioshock got a pretty good story. who honestly cares if you die and the penalty is a joke. Thats not the point of the game if your only argument is the aspect of dying then you some serious issues you may want to see a shrink for...

    I would say it isn't the best game but it is different from some other FPS I've played.

    In general, i avoid these types of games. Yes, sometimes the story is great, graphics are excellent and gameplay is good. but after you finished the game, you rarely give it a second try. Wich makes a 50$-60$ game seem like waste.

    If you got it for 5$, then it's not too bad. This reminds me, i got to make a new topic.

    Fun times.

    I liked the game, ended up using plasmids a lot more than guns. There's a TON of em, and the game gets better as you find more and more of them. It is definitely a "in the mood" kind of game though. Once every couple of days I'll fire it up and play an hour or so. It doesn't have anything that pulls you in real deep and forces you to play through the entire thing in a sitting. I'm appreciative of that, finishing a 50$ game in a day would be disappointing to me.

    Watch Zero Punctuation. It's funny and informative :D

    It's basically a book that comes in the form of a 3D render. It's a bit special.

    I've never played it, so I don't really know. But last year I remember hearing a conversation about how Bioshock was the best game ever, and that cod4 couldn't even compare.

    I insisted that Bioshock was just hyped up, and would fade into oblivion soon enough.... then I saw it for 5 bucks on steam this week..... I lol'ed... :)
