For me, BioShock 2 has been one of those rare sequels where I thought it was simply unnecessary, but as time has gone by, I've become increasingly interested in playing it. Dare I say it -- I'm actually anticipating its early February release.

Over on The Cult of Rapture, we are given our first glimpse of the BioShock 2 Special Edition. Before we get any further, let me start by saying that this game getting a Special Edition is news in and of itself. Alright, let's continue, shall we?

The SE comes in a 13"x13" premium packaging that looks rather neat. Neat enough to warrant a $99.99 price tag for console versions of the game ($89.99 for PC)? Hmm, what else is in this thing?

Three posters depicting vintage ads you'd find in Rapture, a vinyl 180g LP featuring the first BioShock's orchestral score, a CD of BioShock 2's orchestral score, a 164 page 8"x11" hardbound art book, and a copy of the sequel. Wowza.

The art book alone sounds mighty tempting, doesn't it? The BioShock 2 SE is getting a single production run, so you may want to start smashing open that piggy bank of yours for a pre-order right about now.

Many made the reasonable prediction that with the closing of Irrational Games earlier this year, we'd probably seen the last of the BioShock franchise, at least for a bit. That line of thought may prove to have been a bi...more

These PlayStation demakes transport you to a simpler time

It's never been all about the graphics for me. I can appreciate slick environments and the ability to watch sweat roll down my rugged protagonist's brow. But truth be told, I've always had a thing for PlayStation-era graphics...more

BioShock Infinite looks good as a LEGO monument

Bank of the Prophet more like Bank of the Profit am I right? Financial institutions always be like "we're going to screw over the people and get rich doing it and pay little consequence," while religious institutions be like ...more
