What if we were to add that they're currently looking for staff with PS3 experience? No? OK, well, what if we were to tell you that this has lead us to believe that 2K Bost...

You perhaps remember just a few weeks ago when some unruly Gamecock staffers ruined Ken Levine's life and hijacked his VGA acceptance speech for his "Game of the Year" award. In an interview with 1UP, the BioShock mastermind shared his thoughts on the event, saying "All I really gave a crap about w...

If you made it to the end of the Spike VGAs (and you weren't being paid to live blog it), we're not sure if we should be proud of you or pity you. You did, however, get to see one of the more interesting parts of the evening when Gamecock staffers (complete with red capes and combs) stormed the game...

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.

There's no denying that Ken Levine, lead of 2K Boston and guru of BioShock, is a golden boy in the industry right now. So when he defends the odious Lair in the latest episode of the Gamers with Jobs podcast, we can't help but politely, yet firmly, say, "No Ken Levine, bad! Wrong! We care too much a...

A few of you have been asking what a new title update for BioShock on the 360 does and the answer is ... well, it's kind of pedestrian.

Yesterday, we reported on the numerous complaints that have been filling the internets surrounding how BioShock handles widescreen displays. In short, to display widescreen BioShock pulls in the 4:3 aspect ratio and cuts off the top and bottom giving 16:9 ratio players a much smaller game view. So, ...

[Update: Well, not so much.] Sure, once it had downloaded, 360 gamers may have loved playing the BioShock demo earlier this week. But we wonder if it made them feel a little uneasy, as if someone was watching. That wasn't just atmosphere, console gamers: That was the feeling of hundreds of thousan...

While the unbearably long time it's taking to download the Bioshock demo (65% and counting, baby!) is pretty much excruciating to us who are hotly anticipating the game, one has to imagine there's at least one guy who's got a smile on his face: Designer Ken Levine. According to a new interview, he...

Every time that a new video from BioShock is released, it does more than just promote the game, it further inflames our desire for the invention of time travel ... and we doubt we're alone. To that end, we'd like to make a bold proposal: That BioShock continue to be delayed until some...
