If you're 'all-in' on the story it's much easier to overlook many of the criticisms. If you're not sold on the story then everything else just snowballs.
Well, obviously they're valid to you because you're one of the people that didn't care for the game I don't think there's much to rebuke, since it's all just a matter of opinion, just like I've stated here that I didn't have the issues with gameplay that a few people brought up.

I also think it's unfair to say that it falls apart without the story or Bioshock name, when the game was designed with those in mind. That said, the setting alone would have intrigued me quite a bit.

Re: Bioshock Collection (PS4, XB1, PC) - 9/13/16

For PC users, here's how the upgraded versions work -

I own BioShock on PC. How do I get the remastered version?

BIOSHOCK ON STEAM: If you already own BioShock, BioShock 2, or Minerva’s Den on Steam, the remastered version for the corresponding title will automatically show up in your Steam library as a separate game. You can expect to see the remastered titles begin rolling out in Steam libraries starting at 3pm PT on September 15, 2016 (find out what time that is in your timezone[www.thetimezoneconverter.com]). Once it shows up, you can choose to install the original version or the remastered version.

BIOSHOCK NOT ON STEAM: If you have a physical copy of BioShock or BioShock 2 on PC, or a Games for Windows Live digital copy, it may take some additional steps to get the remastered version.

The original BioShock is 9 years old. NINE. That is ancient in computer years. This also means most physical copies didn’t come with a CD key. To get BioShock remastered on Steam, you must provide your Steam profile information AND proof of purchase of the original PC game to 2K Support[support.2k.com]. Find out what else you need to submit a ticket here[support.2k.com].

For BioShock 2, find the Games for Windows Live key that was with your digital or physical copy. Activate this key through Steam. Information and step-by-step instructions can be found at this link[support.2k.com].

Once you have BioShock or BioShock 2 on Steam, you are all set for the upgrade starting at 3pm PT on 9/15/16.

Cool deal. Hopefully Bioshock gets Steam achievements like the other two already have.

Re: Bioshock Collection (PS4, XB1, PC) - 9/13/16

I'm starting to get upset with Amazon Prime and their failure to get stuff out/delivered on time. I ordered this weeks ago for what should have been release day delivery, but instead it has not even shipped yet. This will be the 3rd Prime ordered item in the past month that has not arrived on time. I have already been given 2 extensions of Prime for a month at a time and it is nice and all. However, I'd like to be able to count on Amazon getting my games and other stuff to me on time.

I've never had one not show up on release date, that really sucks. Though fwiw, I never get the shipping notifications until the day of release.

Re: Bioshock Collection (PS4, XB1, PC) - 9/13/16

Mine has not even shipped yet and says it will arrive on Thursday. Also, for some reason they have charged me 48.03 on my credit card for the game when it was purchased for 47.99. I really do not understand what is going on with Amazon. Their quality of service is slipping and they need to get it together before it snowballs downhill and customers start losing faith in their services and shop elsewhere. I love Amazon but not enough to have to email or call them on a weekly basis about a problem with a purchase, shipping, etc.

Sorry Old Boy, you know I'll always have your back. That was just too easy a set up to ignore.

I have a feeling this one will drop pretty quick and when it does it will be mine.

I got bored so I picked it up, very nice remaster, agreed it should drop price very quickly, I think I bought the only copy that has been sold at my local Best Buy.

Re: Bioshock Collection (PS4, XB1, PC) - 9/13/16

I have all the games on PC so it'll be available later today. I'm curious if it'll run on my 2011 PC seeing as I was able to run infinite on the highest graphics settings it shouldn't be a problem?

Good new interview with Bioshock creator Ken Levine.

Nice Now to find the time to run through this again, having last played Bioshock on the 360.

Re: Bioshock Collection (PS4, XB1, PC) - 9/13/16

I think it's pretty cool they're giving the remasters away for free for those that own the games. I figured it would just be the higher resolution but it has all the extras the consoles have.

Can't wait to start playing tonight
