That’s not the subtitle to Bioshock 2, although it really should be. I need to confess something. As much as I enjoyed the first Bioshock, I realized the other day I wasn’t in any big rush to play the sequel. Sure, I wanted it, but I didn’t think I needed to buy it when it comes out next week (on the 9th) — I have some other games to play and stuff I need to watch, so I was thinking about just waiting until after I finish the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII, whenever that might be. Then I saw this new trailer.
Yeah. I think I’ll be picking up Bioshock 2 next week now.
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.
