March's Games with Gold are some of the best games

In the recent past, Xbox Live's Games with Gold program has had mostly the same cadence every month: a standout title, an indie game, and a bit of filler. March breaks that mold with three superb games from 2013. March's Xbox One title is ...   read

BioShock creator working on a new sci-fi game

After BioShock Infinite, developer Irrational effectively closed down. About 70 folks lost their jobs while studio head Ken Levine formed a smaller team focused on highly-replayable narrative-driven games. Recently, the proce...   read

The Black Glove slides onto PS4 with a real good park job

Look, it's an Ace Ventura reference is what I'm doing, okay? It makes sense. Don't hassle me. As much sense as every other "[game] [verbs] [onto]" headline. "Cagney and Lacey Golf tees off on Wii"? Step the heck off.   Anyways, previo...   read

Gone Home/BioShock dev teases first game from new studio

Sorry if the headline misled you. The Gone Home/BioShock crossover does not exist. Not yet anyway. If it ever does, it'll probably come from Johnneman Nordhagen of Dim Bulb Games. Not only was he the lead programmer on Gone Home b...   read

Former BioShock devs doing BioShock-looking The Black Glove

The Black Glove. Huh, I'm into this weird thing. It's obviously reminiscent of BioShock, but the whole manipulating artists to change things sort of brings to mind this year's Ether One. Could turn out neat. Good job some putting tons...   read

BioShock jolts iOS devices today for $14.99

It's a novel concept to take some of the most revered console and PC games from less than a decade ago and put them on phones. Seriously, how have we come this far this fast?! The devices that sit in our pockets and are primarily used for c...   read

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, sans dynamic s...   read

It looks like 2K has some more BioShock up its sleeve

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 bit hasty, as 2K ...   read

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 and earlier. T...   read

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 things as well....   read

BioShock on Vita probably would have been like Final Fantasy Tactics

An installment in the BioShock series for the PlayStation Vita may be one of Ken Levine's only wishes for the franchise that will go unfulfilled. Levine's longing for one of his signature games on the handheld device is well-documented...   read

Eating food to heal in BioShock Infinite really was too much
