Unless you've been living under a rock, you probably know that Bioshock 2 comes out a week from today. And if you have any brain at all (or at least taste), you're about to pee yourself with excitement like me.
Last year, Bioshock 2 was slated for a November 2009 release and then in July, 2K announced that it was being pushed back to the fiscal year of 2010. All I'm saying is, I'M SO GLAD THEY ONLY PUSHED IT BACK TO FEBRUARY. I'm dying over here.
Here are some things about the sequel: you play as a Big Daddy in Rapture, seven years after you last visited. And if that last sentence doesn't make any sense, you need to go rent Bioshock and play it right now. I'm not kidding.
Last year, Cary and I each talked about our favorite video games and, well, Bioshock was my choice, which I shouted at the top of my nerdy lungs. I'm not the only one who sang at the top of rooftops about this game -- it received astounding 10/10 reviews all over the gaming world and, guess what? I've been informed that Playstation 3 Magazine has come out and said that Bioshock 2 is better than the original. As Cary said to me in a text: "Them's fightin' words." I'm not so much concerned about the game being better -- I just want it to be good. And I have faith.
This post isn't necessarily to say anything special or new about the impending release of Bioshock 2, but more of an all-points bulletin to gamers. I know no better way of saying how anxious I am for this game but to tell you that I requested that day off from work so I could spend the entire day playing this game... and they gave it to me. See you there?
