BioShock Demo now on LIVE
Yeah, thats right. Go. Download. NOW

Holy sweet freaking monkey Jesus, is this game good. It's creepy, beautiful, scary.. Everything I hoped it would be. IF there is one complaint about the demo is, you don't get to take on a Big Daddy. But, you'll get too soon enough in the full game. Believe the hype, folks. This ****s for real.

Huh, well that's actually a pretty good reason. Now I'm not mad anymore.

Well, at least they're taking the time to optimize it. This game looks very promising, but I don't want to see yet another bloatware graphics engine, like pretty much everything else that has come out in the last year or two.

How is it compared to the System Shocks so far?

Re: BioShock Demo now on LIVE
If anyone is curious, the release date for the PC edition should be on the 24th of August - in 10 days time from now. At least that's when GAME stores in the UK are set to get it (assuming the information is accurate).

Oh, found this info regarding the PC demo as well (the article was published today): http://uk.pc.ign.com/articles/812/812733p1.html

I'm just stopping by to say that BioShock is indeed TEH AWESOME. Best looking game yet, for sure. And crazy atmosphere.

 
Re: BioShock Demo now on LIVE
Meh, I don't need no stinkin' demo.  I've had this baby preordered since January.

Re: BioShock Demo now on LIVE
I wait a few weeks after release before buying any game these days, never mind preordering. I've seen too many disappointments lately. :p

Re: BioShock Demo now on LIVE
My system is basically one step above the min requirements :( But I refuse to buy it for consoles (let alone even buy a 360), so I guess I'll have to make do :(

It's times like this that I curse my ****ty "can't-connect-to-the-360-for-some-stupid-reason" modem. :(

 
Re: BioShock Demo now on LIVE

Re: BioShock Demo now on LIVE
A couple of points about that though:

Firstly - where are the shadows on the models?:

http://gameinformer.com/NR/rdonlyres/41497688-5BCB-4C0A-B952-A1B1440E2139/13098/BioshockTop1.jpg

Secondly - I've really started taking the opinions of games reviewers with more than a pinch of salt than ever. I can rely on them to tell me what I could do in a game - but I don't trust the opinion of whether it's any good or not. A case in point: I've seen far too many X Box 360 games with "Definitely a contender for game of the year, buy this now!! - Microsoft Magazine" and "It'll be some time before we see another game like this one - The Official X Box 360 Digest" etc. That is to say - of course a magazine written by Microsoft reviewing games on its own console system is going to rave about the ones it wants to sell well. Therefore can we really take that as the truth? Not necessarily.

That said - everyones been saying this is good, so I'm going to try it if nothing else!

Re: BioShock Demo now on LIVE
I don't think there are any sites these days that can be termed trustworthy on their own. I go by a combination of Metacritic (which gives the average score of 30 or so other sites) and user opinions on forums.

Re: BioShock Demo now on LIVE
Kal, go watch some of the videos here. And if you have a 360, get your download on for the demo STAT.

I'll check out the videos but sadly I'm still waiting on the PC version - no XBox 360 for me! :(

99.99% of the time that's the approach I take.  This is a rather large exception for me.
