Thanks to decades of hard living and abuse of over-the-counter cold medicine, we're just a couple of months away from completely forgetting BioShock and being able to experience it again for the first time.

Anyone who's played all the way though BioShock can tell you it's a fairly self-contained experience. The narrative has a definite beginning and, after the last Splicer has been ignited, it has a very definite conclusion.

Ayn Rand isn't a name you typically associate with videogames. At least, we never thought it would come to pass before someone finally green-lit the long awaited The Fountainhead: The Video Game. And yet, Wired has taken up the headline that "BioShock owes more to Ayn Rand than DOOM." Given that th...
