Tips & Tricks:

- The most dollars you can hold is 500 and this is not upgradeable. Don't hoard your money.

- Turn on subtitles because radio transmissions are important and way too faint even with volume adjusted.

- Audio diaries are very important for fleshing out the story of this game. However, the way they are implemented in the game is a bit awkward. You are supposed to pick them up with the action button, then hold the action button to play them. This can cause problems if other items are around. I try to pick up the audio diaries last in an area, then listen, then go on my way. If you trigger a radio transmission while listening to an audio diary, the audio diary gets cut off. You can listen to any audio diaries in the menu, but it's a pain in the neck to do constantly.

- You can aim down a weapon's sights by clicking the right thumb stick, but this only works with certain weapons!

- Security alerts are a pain in the neck. Carefully locate and destroy security cameras to make life a little easier.

- Save hacking tools for safes. They are hard to hack but usually have great loot.

- This game is scary! Play it with the lights off and use headphones for maximum creepiness.

- Speaking of which, Bioshock is not for children. Singlebanana's kids are not going to be able to partake in this one.

- The following is a spoiler about the nature of the game's multiple endings. It is not a story spoiler.

Count me in! One of the best games of its generation, and I'm due for a replay.

I will plan to play this as well. I have a copy, but have never dug into the game. I only briefly played the PS3 demo a few years ago.

I didn't like it the first time around and also didn't really understand the cultural impact (environmental game design and storytelling) it had. I've talked with people and listened to some podcasts and youtube vids about the game since then that have shed some light on the game that I missed during my initial playthrough so I'm actually a bit curious to go back and check somethings out that were lost on me the first time around. Also just having a blast playing through and discussing games with everyone lately so if it's a game I've got in my collection I'll likely be joining in on the playcast.

Iím shocked to see Crabby join in on this. Any conversation we have ever had about this series, did not have you ever giving much of a favourable opinion. Glad to see you coming around. Hey maybe we should do a Fallout 3 playthrough on here, some time. 😉 Being that this is probably one of the first titles I ever played on my PS3, and honestly one of my favourites on that console, I would like to try and join in on this one, too.

I started this today and have already reached the first checkpoint. This game definitely holds up.

I'm playing the remastered edition on Steam, which I hear is a butchered port, but I haven't had any problems with it.
