Welcome to the Circus of Subjective Value!

2k Games has announced BioShock: 10th Anniversary Collector's Edition for PS4 and Xbox One, available November 14th. Coming in at $199.99, this pricey bundle includes last year's BioShock: The Collection, which includes touched-up version of the three mainline BioShock titles and their DLC, as well as this very slick collector's statue.

Standing tall at 11", the statue sports "Lights, Audio, and a Motorized Drill." While the lights and sounds I could do without, I do really appreciate the drill, assuming it rotates properly. I don't have a ton of room in my place for collector's statues, but this is something I'd definitely "accidentally" break some of my wife's snowglobes for which to clear space.

Also announced was a 10th anniversary party dubbed "Return to Rapture" to take place a PAX West. A separate event not requiring tickets and free to the public, the show promises popular enemies from the series, themed food and drinks, a DJ, and my personal favorite, a BioShock Cosplay Contest! If you go to this, please send me pictures.

I hadn't actually considered the age of the original game until seeing this news. I know it's kind of goofy to say, but BioShock totally changed my perception of what a video game could deliver. With such a high-concept endeavor with obviously a lot of production and even more love put into it, I was absolutely stunned from front to back going through it my first time.

BioShock was truly terrifying in parts, introspective in others, and played great at the time. The sequel came along and did some interesting things while improving the gameplay, but story-wise felt like a bit of a retread which ultimately held it back from true greatness. BioShock Infinite is a video game that you can play. If you want. I'm not your real dad.

BioShock 10th Anniversary Collector's Edition is available for pre-order at GameStop and the 2k Store.
