Weekend reading: BioShock: Rapture novel excerpt photo



BioShock: Rapture, the prequel to Irrational Games' BioShock, is out July 19. It's not a game, though, it's a novel. Fun fact: Rapture is written by John Shirley, who wrote the the 1994 film, The Crow.

Is it any good? Not sure yet, as I'm about to read an excerpt from the novel right now. You can, too -- publisher Tor Books has put it online for your reading pleasure. Unless you totally think it's crap, then it's like a 10-minute-long nightmare or something, depending on how fast you can read.

Read it and then discuss in the comments, would you kindly?

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

Somebody put BioShock assets in Unreal Engine 4

The original BioShock ran on (a heavily modified version of) Unreal Engine. That was almost seven years ago. What would the game look like running on the newest iteration, Unreal Engine 4? Someone had that same thought and p...more

Plasmids are surprisingly dangerous in real life
