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

Not sure if this has been posted here, but for some reason the bioshock remastered collection disables all streamings on xbox and ps4:

http://kotaku.com/the-new-bioshock-c...ium=Socialflow

If you want to stream BioShock directly from your console, you’re out of luck. Last night, I tried to stream BioShock: The Collection from my PS4 but found that the entire game was blocked from broadcast. No audio, no video. A similar issue exists on the Xbox One as well.

A post on 2K’s support site states: “Unfortunately, streaming BioShock: The Collection isn’t an option right now.”

Ratchet and Clank would disabled streaming during cut scenes. I'm not into live streaming games but I wonder if it's the beginning of a trend.

anyone else notice that on Bioshock one...when you aim left it feels normal, but when you aim right it moves at half the speed?

Maybe Nintendo secretly bought Irrational Games...

This is a really lazy remaster. Almost all of the same problems exist. Things like the subtitle timing and the mouse acceleration are still a problem.

Yeah, in that interview I posted, Ken Levine said that he had nothing to do with this remaster/collection, they didn't even ask him, and I guess it shows.

It's a pretty good upgrade for the console versions, it's a lateral move for the PC ones.

There is an option to turn it off. I could be wrong, but I think that is the same as before.

I am playing Bioshock on the PS4 and it seems to be a substantial upgrade over the PS3 version, which I platinumed.

You can't just play the commentary? You have to find "golden reels" in game? Lame.

That's like a PS2 era thing. I remember shit like that. Found it annoying in that time too.

If you have the PC version, you can just edit an ini to give yourself the films.

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

After finishing 1 I planned on going into 2..but decided to skip it for now and start Infinite.

The game is amazing. This will be the 5th time I have finished it...and I am still having a blast. Playing on 1999 mode might be the most perfect balance of challenge and fun ever in a game (though insanity on Mass Effect 2 might be better) What I mean by that is when you play smart, you feel like a badass even on 1999. Make a mistake and you pay for it. Other games when played on the highest difficulty are more of luck and patience to make it through parts. Here you feel like you are on your toes, but it still lets you feel powerful.

The sound, music, and art style still amaze. The combat is spot on with 60 fps. I have been landing headshots with my pistol non-stop...it almost feels like there is aim-assist (which there is not on 1999)

I know this game gets hit by some, but I honestly feel it is the best in the series..and easily one of the top 10 games of all time.

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

The save system starts to get very annoying the closer you get to the end of the game. I was able to have at least 30 different saves before and now I am having to delete between 2-3 saves each time I save. There are even times where I have to delete an older save just to be able to write over the most current save. I am probably down to only about 8 save slots. This really should no be a problem with these games when your hard drive has hundreds of gigs of free space. The largest save file so far is like 70mb, which is nothing compared to the ridiculous size of the saves of some other games. Great game but annoying save system.

Why do you need 30 saves?

When you are working on a platinum in a game like this where there are certain things that can cause you to miss it and start another play, you want to make sure you have a variety of saves in different places and after major confrontations. My point is that as you go further along in the game, your number of available save slots decreases greatly while the size of each save increase five to six times.

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

I just started Bioshock 2 and was unable to even make my first save in the game. Some dumb ass decided that the saves for both game should be in one file and put a cap on it. I had to exit out of the game, losing my progress so far, and delete saves from the first game. Now, this is one of the stupidest things I have ever seen in a collection's design.
