    I don't get why companies put so much effort into DRM for a game, when it's inevitably going to be hacked. They're just distancing themselves from their target audience...

    According to an article on Kotaku, there is to be no LAN or Dedicated Server support for BioShock2.

    I am not interested in the multiplayer at all, but if the SP is solid, then it's a possibility.

    Have pre-ordered from Steam. I'm hoping they are going to allow a pre-load as my internet connection is trying to win awards for slowness.

    I'll take it if you can't give it to anyone else. My bioshock 1 disk broke a couple months back, and I want to replay it before B2 comes out.

    hgr_des is the steam name.

    That clip is pre-rendered cgi , and is nothing like the qaulity of the game , I got bioshock 2 yesterday , once again the story line is very engaging , gamplay has improved especailly as you can shoot weapons and plasmids simultaneously , my big bugbear though is that the graphics seen to be worse than the original , some very poor textures especially in the opening area , things look a bit flat!. Apart form that though i'm really enjoying it...

    A lot of people are saying it's not as good as the first, bit dissapointing as a sequel should be better otherwise what's the point.

    And Bioshock was a game of the year, i suppose they just couldn't pull it off again.

    Of course the purpose of a launch trailer is to drum up excitement for the game, i hope nobody is naive enough to think the game actually looks like that.

    I loved the first, bought it on release but i think i might wait until the second starts falling in price.

    Only played for 30 mins or so but looks pretty good so far. Just worried it plays all its cards too soon but Joe assures me there are twists, turns and surprises in store.

    Did you notice the downgrade in the visuals too ? - i have been playing the original bioshock quite recently so i noticed it straight away..... IGN also mentioned it in their review - BTW are bit-tech reviewing this one ?

    Btw - I seem to be able to force AA in this game via the nvidia control panel - other nvidia users are saying they can't - weird...
