How To Return To Rapture Remastered

Bioshock: The Collection [official site] is out next week, and as such you’ll be able to play the first two Bioshock games and all of the single-player DLC in renewed detail. Bioshock Infinite is thrown in there for good measure, but it already looks so pretty on PC they’re leaving it as is. 2K Games also plan to give the updated versions free to people who own the originals. How? What’s the catch? I checked, and it turns out it is surprisingly painless. Read on!

Cheese It: Mafia III’s Post-Launch DLC Plans Detailed

I remain puzzled by big publishers announcing DLC for games before they’re even released. “Here are cool things that won’t be in the game you’re paying £35 for,” they proudly announce. “Here’s what will cost you an extra £26.” We haven’t even got to play the game and see if we like it yet they’re trying to upsell us on extras – which makes me want the game less. Baffling. Welp, with Mafia III [official site] just over a month from launch – October 7th – 2K have detailed the paid and free extras coming to their open-world crimes ’em up after launch.

NBA 2K17 Career Stars Michael Jordan (The Other One)

Like a thespian Bo Jackson, Michael B. Jordan is acting all the sports. After mastering boxing in Creed and handegg in Friday Night Lights, he’ll now tread the boards of the balltobasket stage in NBA 2K17 [official site]. He’ll play your custom character’s best ballbuddy in the game’s MyCareer story mode, where players guide a character of their own creation through life on and off the pitch. The story’s written and directed by Creed co-writer Aaron Covington too. If this seems extravagant for a sports game, pssh, this is nothing: last year’s story was a Spike Lee joint.

BioShock Original And Remastered Graphics Comparison

So I can’t play the original BioShock because I can’t deal with injections at all. I played Binfinite, though, and that was better, although I think some of the DLC is perhaps not my cup of tea in terms of icky moments. That’s why I’m now watching the BioShock: The Collection Remastered [official site] trailer through my fingers, ready to cover my eyes at any moment should a needle make a sudden appearance:

Evolve’s New Hunter Is… Shocking

Evolve [official site] went free-to-play earlier this month, breathing new life into Turtle Rock Studios’ 4 vs. 1 monster hunter. Riding that renewed wave of enthusiasm, Turtle Rock has added a new version of the hunter Griffin ripped straight from an ’80s scifi flick—Electro Griffin.

BioShock: The Collection Bringing Revamped Rapture

Rapture is still one of my favourite video game places, and I’m quite keen to return to it all fancied-up. Following a string of leaks, publishers 2K today announced BioShock: The Collection [official site]. It’s coming our way in September with all three BioShock games and their singleplayer DLC plus a video series with words from sweet Ken Levine. Most notably, the first two are being revamped – though 2K say Binfinite is pretty enough already. It is quite pretty, that’s true. Here, catch a few glimpses at the nice improved Rapture in this announcement trailer:

Civilization VI Vid Introduces Queen Victoria’s English Civ

“The English can be an aggressive and expansionist civilisation,” explains a new Civilization VI [official site] trailer introducing the English civ’s unique units and buildings, “but they can also switch towards a cultural victory if they set up their museums and send their archaeologists aboard.”

Yes indeed ladies and gentleman, a little bit of politics.
