In other years we'd get blockbusters like Bioshock around now. This year its Truck Racing Championship! Woo! It's like the big publishers have given up thanks to the indie and F2P glut.

Well, I was going to post that Dead Cells is a fantastic game and everyone should play it if they haven't, but now I want Bioshock 3.

Where Did All The BioShocks Go?

Quote:
Have you ever sat there and thought to yourself, “Wow, we are almost at the end of this console generation and we haven’t had a single new BioShock game?" Just think about that for a moment if you haven’t.

One of the biggest fucking games of last gen, one of the most memorable, evocative, and marketable intellectual properties in recent games history, and yet for an entire generation, for nigh on six fucking years, 2K Games just hasn’t been bothered with it, choosing instead to focus primarily on microtransaction-led experiences which are a lot harder to justify with the BioShock IP. It’s difficult to add microtransactions and loot boxes to a game like BioShock without fundamentally wrecking the experience and indirectly demonstrating many of the series’ themes pertaining to unchecked industry, so 2K appeared to simply stop giving a fuck.

I mean seriously think about it. Isn’t that just bloody weird to imagine? A game that played a huge part in defining an entire console generation just… fucking… gone. If a game can’t be mangled and twisted to generate “recurrent user spending” then it’s abandoned.

I picked up Dead Cells quite a while back before it was finished, loved it! It got pretty frustrating after a while and I eventually put it down, but for the price it was a lot of fun.

Also, Brightburn sucked.
