In Blackest Night: Secret Bioshock 2 Nerdery

Random morning silliness - the Bioshocks have always been good for easter egg hunting, but this one adds a little LARPING to the ongoing tale of Rapture's fall. Own the special edition of the game? If so, you may have elected to display the three rather pleasant and tasteful art-deco posters it contains. Woe betide you if anyone ever enters your house with a blacklight...

Photos here, if you like.

Reminds me of Kieron's and my aborted plan for a Bioshock New Year's Eve party a few years ago.

These posters and a blacklight would have been the delectably apocalyptic cherry on top.
