Bioshock - Burial At Sea

I know, I know. The Bioshock games are primarily first person shooters. However, over the years they’ve grown into something so much more with the story, setting and characters being a huge part of it. In this years Bioshock Infinite the first hour of the game had absolutely no combat in at all was all about exploration, story and intrigue and the DLC “Burial at Sea” seems to expand on this kind of gameplay. So hopefully the adventure gamers that you are will all be excited about the DLC too. According to previews of the game the first half will mostly involve investigation work and exploration of pre-fall Rapture. All very exciting Smile

Also, keep in mind that the people who worked on DLC for Bioshock 2 went on to make the phenomenal adventure game, Gone Home, which came out a few months ago so the series is clearly interested in transcending FPS conventions.
 
I’m pretty excited for this and it will be good to hunt for those smaller details once I get into the game.

Bioshock. Spiritual Successor to System Shock, a Action/Adventure Horror RPG with emphasis on Adventure and RPG.

Who knew? lol

Actually, I assume that many here are like me and play all types of games. If I were making a game I’d make it like Bioshock - lots of everything for everybody.

I have the first Bioshock and loved it, I’ll have to pick up this one and the DLC as well.

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

Still think System Shock was more Adventure than Bioshock but that was a time when absolute exploration and dead ends were considered fun. (I still think they’re fun though)

System Shock was a great game too and yes, it was more an adventure game than this one.

Looks like a dud

Unfortunately, the design of the whole thing is paper-thin, and mostly serves to emphasize the fact that BioShock Infinite was designed to be a first-person shooter and little else. There’s no way to sneak, no way to chat or deceive, and no inventory to speak of. On the surface, the sequence is precisely the kind of thing I wanted more of in Infinite, but while I applaud Burial at Sea’s designers for attempting to give us something beyond shoot-loot-shoot-shloot, the opening chapter is mostly a tease for a game that Infinite’s trigger-happy underpinnings can’t support.


Will wait for GOTY edition.

Well Ep2 is getting good reponse, seems like kenlevine has pulled another narrative
ace.

And new gameplay(1998 mode) and style that harks back to Thief 1 and 2 = auto win.

Cant wait to finish it.

Amazing twisting story, what we thought of BS1 and Infinite was not the full picture,
new revelations and great gameplay change. Best DLC after Dishonored.

Ep2
9/10.

Great way to tie up all the characters of Bioshock world.
