Hey, Mister Bubbles...
The trend of HD re-releases of old games is certainly not slowing down by any means. Recently, gamers were treated to Dishonored being given the HD treatment as well as having all of its old DLC bundled in with it. Last month some sharp-eyed people noticed that a listing for something called The Bioshock Collection had appeared, and then taken down rather quickly, on the website Raru, apparently for release at the end of November. To this day, views are still split on weather these re-releases are just another cash grab or actually a good chance to improve on old games using current-gen tech. However, for others it is simply a nice trip down memory lane... as long as the price is right.
The first Bioshock was something of a work of art. Not only was the story something of a mystery that slowly revealed itself as the player progressed, but the setting itself was truly a character in itself, and a unique one at that. The underwater city of Rapture was something to admire. It was beautifully designed and was a joy to explore, but it was also the setting of a man's vision that had gone very wrong and all hell had broken lose. The ugliness of the Splicers had tainted Rapture for a while before the player's arrival, and the subsequent journey to its dramatic ending is regarded by many as one of the finest campaigns ever made. It came with no multiplayer or any kind of DLC (besides an additional achievement for the 360 version) but, to this day, is still held in high regard.
