Shock 2 veterans of the world unite! They can take our lean function! They can take our ability to walk! They can take our skill system which means that a highly trained solider can’t work out how to pull a trigger on a grenade launcher for most of the game, guns which break down within seconds of acquiring them and a basically linear final third ending in a single risible cheap-gag cut-scene undercutting the whole thing!
But they can’t take our Irrational Logo. ANYMORE.
Strangebedfellows.de have posted a tiny mod which replaces the logo at the start of Bioshock with Irrational’s old one. As they put it…
“We acknowledge that their new publisher 2K has played a big part in making Bioshock come true. But many of us were truly disappointed that they renamed Irrational Games just days before the release of Bioshock, deleting a valuable corporate and personal identity. In other words, this is a protest.”
Shodan would be proud. Well, she wouldn’t be, she’s never proud of a p-p-p-athetic hacker, but that’s hardly the point.
