GameTrailers has the first game footage of Bioshock 2: Sea of Dreams, and the rumors — well, depending on which rumors you heard — are true: you are a Big Daddy, and you are chasing a surprisingly fast and obviously bad-tempered Big Sister around Rapture. The trailer is pretty amazing, showcasing a lot of great effects and set pieces, but I think I’m most excited about the new achievement that allows you to hold both of your hands in front of you at the same time, so you can use plasmids and weapons. Incredible! And obviously very, very badly needed this time around.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
