Quote
BioShock 3 has been announced by way of Take Two's investor relations call. When pushed to reveal the BioShock movie's release date, big boss Strauss Zelnick stated, "itís more likely that it would be released coincident with BioShock 3." No further B3 details were given, though the accompanying financial release does state that Gore Verbinski will direct the movie adaptation:

    BioShock, a wholly owned and internally developed title for Xbox 360 and Games for Windows shipped over 2.2 million units since its debut in late August. 2K Games will be bringing this popular title to the PLAYSTATION 3 this fall, and Universal Pictures is developing a feature film based on BioShock to be directed by Gore Verbinski, director of the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy.

So where is Bioshock 2? I dont recall playing that one yet even smile Id be all for a good trilogy. But I dont want another underwater city like that. Lets take it back to a space station smile

You missed the announcements.  In Bioshock 2 you go back to Rapture but this time you're a security guard while everything from the first game is happening.  Then in Bioshock 3 you play a military special forces guy sent in at the same time.

No, that's Bioshock 4: Episode 2.  After you play a Big Daddy in Episode 1.

So, what cool things would you like to see in an actual Bioshock 2 and 3?

For me, Bioshock 2 should either be more rapture, or we could try a different area with a different setting.

If they go different setting route, I'd like Bioshock 3 to return to rapture with the whole city gone even worse.  Instead of just splicers, there'll be Grotesques, splicers that are so far gone they've mutated way beyond the human form into practically monsters.

They could make a game a lot more open, much like how Stalker Clear Sky is going more open..

and the rest in spoilers:
Spoiler for Hiden:
there could be a lot of different factions within Rapture that are fighting to fill the power vacuum left by the death of Ryan and Fontain, the game's two main power bases.  That'd leave that sick bastard Cohen open for a power grab, depending on whether they keep him alive story-wise.  Then they'd have free reign to add in a bunch of new factions.

I'd like to see a completely unrelated Bioshock title.  New character, new setting, no link to Ryan or Rapture.  But I suspect it will be a return to Rapture, either before or after the events of the first game.

I agree, but why call it Bioshock then? I do not like it when sequels kind of force a new story. If it relates to the earlier game, it needs to make some assumptions on how the player experienced that game, which may be completely different from how I saw it. Nope, better make a whole new one.

Besides with the Pirates of the Bioshock movies coming, they might be better off giving it a new name  Tongue

I don't think you have to follow that formula of games being true sequels.  Final Fantasy is an example of a game series that doesn't fall into that trap.

I just think going back to Rapture is unlikely to be all that interesting.  Any storyline they come up with would seem forced, IMHO.  And the other idea, of using similar closed locales (space, etc.) and trying to link them to the previous story would also be weird.

Well, System Shock 2 was set in a completely different location, with completely different people, and a completely different storyline - with some pretty tenuous links to the first one (we just HAPPENED to jump in at the very planet where...). It worked ok, the focus was more on creepy craziness than on "OMG THIS IS SO MUCH DIFFERENT THAT THE FIRST ONE!"

I would like to see new enemies, creepier "mutations" and some neater plasmids. Kinda like - this guy has been using adam on animals and people, making horrible horrible hybirds - or something like that. Truth of the matter is, you get a nice disgusting voice over and horrific models and textures and you have 1/2 the story written (seriously, I love SS2, but cyborg nannies?! That needed no story, it was just awful).

I loved Bioshock, and its setting.

However, I recently got back into System Shock 2 (and made it far past the point at which I kept getting stuck before), and despite its dated graphics (or maybe because of the Dark Engine, which I love), I am currently of the opinion that SS2 is the better game.

Then again, I've always enjoyed the retro stuff more, as a rule....up to a point.

No... it isn't a love of retro... System Shock 2 is clearly a better game.

And yes, evil monkey's are an essential part of you balanced breakfast (of brains and plasmids).
