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.

That BioShock teaser was an iOS port and it plays well (sort of)

That BioShock teaser from 2K? It's not a new BioShock game. It's the first one, but on Apple devices. Hence the apple in the tease. Clever. Who called it? This is basically a full port of the PC version of BioShock,...more
