Bioshock 2 review plus tips and tricks

By: goukijones Mar 4, 2010 | 1170 Views | 2 Comments

Death to all little sisters! I'd like to bang a Big Sister. Seriously though, this series is circling the drain. Pun intended. Jimah!

I've played through and have beaten Bioshock 2 twice now on normal and hard difficulties. The game is fun, a few changes from the original which are good and bad in the long run. The graphics and sound design are spot on. At first I thought the graphics were a little weaker than the original, but that won't make a difference as you play Bioshock 2.

So when I say it's easier the second time through on hard, what I mean is ... it's easier. The second time through I killed every Little Sister. Killing them gets you plenty of extra Adam(Adam is what you use to buy new or upgrade your plasmids(plasmids is the stuff you shoot out of your left hand.)) That's for the noobs. Anyway killing every Little Sisters will get you plenty of Adam to level up. I was so powerful at the end of my second run through I was just standing there watching everyone else fight each other. First off I would turn invisible when I stood still for a second. Then I always had two of my own security bots flying around, doing a perimeter check and their stats were maxed out. I had the Swarm plasmid maxed out and a swarm of bees would seek out any splicer in the room and eat them up. Also the bees would lay dormant in the dead bodies waiting for another splicer to walk by to attack them. Finally my other ally was a Big Daddy. The level three Hypnotize can take control of Big Daddies, So I had two flying security bots, a swarm of killer bees and a Big Daddy running around the room killing everything while I ate a sandwich.

Something that I really missed from the original Bioshock is that the hacking has been completely changed. The original Bioshock hacking was a puzzle of pipes that you had to rearrange and connect the power flow from one end to the other. Now in Bioshock 2 hacking is just a twitch mini-game of a needle flying by and you have to hit the A button at the right time. Sucks. Also the machines don't talk anymore which I thought was cool for the environment from Bioshock 1,  it also helped to find a machine when you could hear it screaming "Welcome to the circus of values!" from around the corner.

If you played the original Bioshock you remember that you could go back to almost the very beginning of the game and travel to any level at any time before you started the end sequence. So if you missed something, especially a Big Daddy you could go back. Bioshock 2 is extremely linear and there really is no free roam at all. Some of the levels are big *Tips and Tricks - Make sure you have an area completely cleaned out before you take any train, there is no return!

You can't assign plasmids to specific slots and when you upgrade them they move around. That's just stupid game design there. *Tips and Tricks - You need to use fire and electricity throughout the entire game, but you only really need to level up one element. Use your Adam on Security command, Hypnotize or Target Dummy. Those are super fun when they are leveled up.

The weapons in Bioshock 2 do not compare well to anything really. The Rivet gun is a piece of shit, I understand it's the "pistol" of the game, but c'mon it's not cool at all. *Tips and Tricks - Do not upgrade the Rivet gun at the "Power to the People" weapon upgrade station. It's worthless. Speaking of the Power to the People weapon upgrades, in Bioshock 2  the physical changes to the guns don't look as cool as they did in the original Bioshock. Jimmy don't like that!

Research Camera upgrade! Now it's a video camera. I think I'm a photographer so in the original Bioshock I was trying to set up scenes and get action shots to get a high rating for my pictures. Just another fun mini-game that has been pulled from guts in Bioshock 2. With the new video camera, you just quickly turn on the camera and it will automatically switch to the last gun you had equipped. Raip the shit out of whatever you were going to kill anyway and easily get an A++. *Tips and Tricks - Always walk around with the camera equipped first so you remember to film enemies. Works well especially with Houdini Splicers and security.

Gene Tonics, Tonics? We talkin' about Tonics? Jimmy? Well I don't know if they do shit. Sports Boost does not do anything. I swear to the almighty Cliffy B! The Sports Boost tonic in Bioshock 2 does not do anything. You get a second upgrade to speed and movement and you still don't notice a significant change in your rate of speed. Although I was standing still, invisible (via the Camouflage tonic) and in water regenerating all of my health and Eve (via the Fountain of Youth tonic.) *Tips and Tricks - Hacking is pointless, you can stand at a machine, invisible and take all the time you want, the security bots will not see you. Don't waste Tonic slots on Hacking or Camera research. Unlike the original Bioshock in Bioshock 2 the research camera has unlimited film, so just record everything constantly. Don't be a Jimmy!

There is at least two different endings. Nothing to be excited about though. I don' t like the direction the series is going. We didn't need a multiplayer. I didn't buy Bioshock 2 for multiplayer. It's too easy ... You are a Big Daddy! You have a swarm of bees for a pet, two security robots patrol the area around you and any Big Daddy can be befriended by you and fight alongside you. Go get some Big Brass Balls Jimmy! Beat it on hard with no Vita-chamber active! Don't forget to save.

Rent it! I beat it twice very fast. I played the multiplayer once.

Bioshock 2 Launch trailer and SE unboxing

By: goukijones Feb 3, 2010 | 334 Views | 4 Comments

Bioshock 2 will be available 2-9-10 and I can't wait. Check out these two new videos from 2K games.

Bioshock 2 launch trailer *NEW. I'm a huge fan of the first game. Played through it 3 times and just recently again last summer. Missed to of those damn voice boxes and cost me an almost perfect gamerscore. Can't wait to play this, I will be on lock down 2-9-10.


Bioshock 2 TV teaser. For some reason whatever shows I do watch on TV I never see commercials like this. So I gonna post them so everyone gets a chance to enjoy them.


Bioshock 2 Special Edition unboxing *NEW. This video is funny, watch it. It still extremely hard for me to justify the purshase of the Bioshock 2 Special Edition, but the book looks cool and if you frame ($$$) those pictures then, maybe then it would be cool.

First Q games

By: reipuerto Feb 1, 2010 | 336 Views | 9 Comments

Games, games, games and then some! But where are the number sales...

What better way to start off the year than to go broke right?

Within the first Quarter of this year, 2010 will be a year to rival the insane '07. With games already out, like Mass Effect 2, DarkSiders, and Bayonetta already out and making a splash, this Q1, first quarter, will be one to talk about.

When you have more that 17 games coming out, in that time frame, I hope you saved money from Q4 last year. But not everything is all flowers and sunshine.

When you have Mass Effect 2 and BioShock 2 coming out two week from each other, it makes you think. How would Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo allow that? Let me break this down.

Third parties won't make full profit on their respective games like; MegaMan 10, Bayonetta, DarkSiders, BioShock 2, Dante's Inferno, Alian Vs. Preditor, Battlefield; Bad Company2, Final Fantasy XIII and Red Dead Redemption. This is at times, too much for three months! Are you kidding me? There's gonna have sales but not the kind that they deserve.

Microsoft should've stepped in and said something about this. Alan Wake looks to be going the route of Duke Nukem but does anyone really remember that any more? But since they have the audience, it will get more units for it.

Sony is getting the bad end of the shaft here. They got White Knight Chronicles, Heavy Rain, MAG, Yakuza, and God of War 3 coming out. The poor bastard has a hard time of selling a few system now that you have so many all compressed in a few months, the well will run dry quick. Some might only see Final Fantasy brand as a PlayStation brand only, and I don't blame them. Would YOU really play that game in three disk?

Nintendo.. They always sell in hardware but rarely software. Tatsunoko Vs CAPCOM, Red Steel 2, No More Heros 2, Ragnarok Online DS, and WarioWare D.I.Y. all won't sell the share they should. This troubles me because EVERYONE complains that it blow and it doesn't have hardcore games, now that there are games for the bloody thing, not everyone can buy them all before another game comes out and gets screwed again.

Thus, this Q1 will be intense to sell which game make it and which one will shove under a rock and be overshadowed. It's very understandable that these game are that of a different genres, that it won't matter, but form those that have the money to play game, the only thing we don't have, is time for them.

What game will you be getting this Q1? For what system? And will you be looking forward to Gears3 and Halo: Reach in E3? Maybe even Metroid, Zelda, and Mario too?

Peace!
