Your comments on our articles.

Irrational's co-founder explains the narrative challenges he faces with the much-anticipated follow-up

In the pantheon of games developers, Ken Levine is pretty much filed and receipted as the biggest name in 'thinking-persons'-shooters'.

bioshock is hardly a thinking mans shooter, he hasn't done anything for 5 years, so stop sucking his thumb.

The games looking ok, still need to see alot more, i had my hunches about assasins creed 3, halo 4, borderlands 2, mass effect 3 and cod blops 2. and just like the perviously mentioned i've got my hunch that this is just more of the same marketed as though it's anything but. Hope i'm wrong but all I can smell is end of console generation generic fps where spending £10 on bioshock 1 or 2 would give you just as much satisfaction
