    Indeed, I have no problem paying now. Bioshock was one of the first dx10 games and helped to effective shut up the winXP "dx10 doesnt offer anything more" crowd.

    Looking forward to it a great deal!

    "So, BioShock 2 will be with us Europeans first - let us know how that makes you feel in the forums"

    Really? Are you serious?

    It's hard to feel much jubilation at this point. I, like many of my fellow gamers, have reservations about this sequel, and I'm anxious to read a review of the finished article.

    It had better be a bit more varied this time round.
    The same "baddies" all over, and same-o weapons throughout the game...
    The atmosphere more than made up with it, with art Deco styling....

    Will wait for a review...

    Can't wait ... quite literally! I'm of half a mind to set up camp outside my local spaceworld shop. :D

    Yep, I'm dithering over this one, I'll see how the reviews go.

    The notion that you will be hunted throughout the game by a Big Sister is an interesting one and I'm curious how they are going to pull it off. If every confrontation you have with the BS ends in a stalemate I'm wondering how they can generate any sense of danger or tension given that you know you won't be able to kill her until the end of the game.

    The one thing that does give me hope is that the lead designer for the sequel is Jordan Thomas, the man who created the Fort Frolic level in the original and he was also responsible for the Cradle in Thief:Deadly Shadows. I reckon if anyone can make it work then it would be him.

    ^ From what I've read, well..... I better not say too much as it's a bit of a partial spoiler if you don't know (I wish I didn't know it :/). But it shouldn't be a "stalement" every time if I've interpreted what I've read correctly. I could have got the wrong idea though.....
