gaming joys or when i find out that vitachambers are important.

A little backstory: I ended up picking up BioShock at a Blockbuster B1G1 (yep, that long ago) and my plan was to just trade it in for some nice credit. I then decided since I have it, I might as well just play it.
Many months later lol...
I ended up playing about 5 hours of BioShock last night (this isn't indicative of how far I got) and I can honestly say... it's not that bad. I never imagined myself playing this since I don't play many shooters and I tend to shy away from survival horror and this seemed like a mishmash of both with some good old fashioned Objectivism as a framework.
My stats so far:
Hours in: ~5
Currently: just defeated my first Rosie Big Daddy
Not really smart, but I decided to do a one playthrough achievement run so no vitachambers and hard mode. I'm getting owned a lot definitely buy something tells me that when I get the grenade launcher things will change...
The game is definitely creepy. The late '50s vibe with the dystopic environment with corpses and blood strewn all over sets a serious mood. I was playing with the GF half watching half websurfing and she mentioned that she wouldn't play alone because the splicer dialogue alone would have just made her shut it off. I admit that some of the splicers did creep me out as well.
All and all at the rate I'm going I might beat this either late tonight or tomorrow afternoon and I foresee myself enjoying the ride.
