Does this shit get better?

I just lost elizabeth and am at the "industrial" or worker section. I guess I still have a lot left to go.
>>
That game was so unsatisfying to me. Imo people only praise it because of its 2deep4u story and "hot" companion.

It's just an on rails boring shooter other than that.
>>
It's a fun game to play thru. Ignore story. A good 6.5/10. Nothing exceptional, but fun enough for an afternoon or two.

>>323332330
going from Bioshock 1/2 to this was a big pill to swallow. I'm excited to try burial at sea though. I think a big thing for me not enjoying this game is the location. I couldn't eat up enough of rapture (though it all got a little bit more monotonous in 2)
>>
No. it's a shit game, but at we got some great SFM.
>>
>>323332206
How do you define "better"?
You're about to find some cool new weapons, the story is about to go apeshit and the difficulty is about to ratchet up. Find a Hand cannon and hold onto it, best close up weapon in the game.
Keep going.

I could've swallowed the shit story and illusion of choice excused off with "Constants and Variables" -bullshit because Levine has a preschoolers understanding of quantum physics - as in none. But in one fell swoop they had to shit on the previous bioshocks too with that bullshit "Multiverse" -ending. Durr sea, derrh lighthouse, fuck you levine you barneyfag hack.

>You're about to find slightly better re-skinned versions of the weapons you're already using, the story is about to show the writer had no idea what he was doing, and they're going to keep throwing the same enemies at you but in greater number. Be prepared to cheese the fuck out of the ghost-boss unless you want an exercise in frustration, and I hope you weren't hoping for a QTE final boss or final boss in general.

>racism is bad
>this entire society is racist

Unlike most of 4chan, I actually am not racist and try to be magnanimous to people of other cultures, but I was really surprised reading some gamefaqs and reddit articles that said this game had a strong moral conflict. That might have been the case if this game had argued something like "Everyone is a little bit racist, but nobody wants to accept that and this is a bad thing for society" or something but this game really just doesn't offer anything for me to think about in terms of the moral ethic they've tried to establish here. I really just don't get it.

no, it just gets worse

How is this any better? Really please explain your argument.

I don't get how you idiots love Bioshock 1,2 but shit on this one.

Went back and tried playing the original a few days ago and it's fucking boring.

I can't remember the last time I legitimately started falling asleep while playing a fucking video game.

It also struck me hilarious when I read one thread on gamefaqs about the game where someone actually said they didn't know who John Wilkes Booth was, I believe the sentence went something like, "What confused me was when I entered the house and in the lobby there was a big statue of John Wilkes Booth (Was I supposed to know who this is?)" I mean I hope anyone going into this game knows at least a little bit about this junk, but I guess they don't really have to.

>>323333707
To be fair, that's a meaningless name unless you're American. So unless you're arguing this is a game by Americans for only other Americans, it's a poorly-phrased but semi-valid concern. If they're going to put in historical figures and try to sell the game to an audience with no reference to who those figures are, they ought to put at least -some- effort into explaining it (provided its an important part of the game).

>>323333690
It's easier to get into. Everything about it has been streamlined. Instead of having many options for people when they were not needed, the game took on a more gunplay focus, turning levels into large open arenas so gunplay would remain the central focus while having just enough options for your abilities to be utilities and not the actual focus. This is also in keeping with the story, in which the powers are seen as secondary to man and machine. The gameplay then becomes more direct and to the point.

SS2>BS1>SS1>BS2>BS:I

Though SS1, 2 and BS1 are all essentially so close its irrelevant. My only disagreement is that BS1 was stronger from a narrative and theme-perspective, whereas BS2 improved on the gameplay and visuals.

BS2 will play better, but BS1 was more enjoyable.

I will admit BS1 did have a better story overall, but I enjoyed BS2's

>Took a more gunplay focused.
They imposed a 2-weapon limit in a series that used to have 7+ weapons at the same time, and then limited it FURTHER by making weapons upgradeable which forced you to dump money into 2-3 weapons you liked and only carry those around the majority of the game. Not even mentioning that half the weapons don't even SHOW UP until the latter half of the game, where there's no point to getting them since you have nearly fully-upgraded other weapons by that point.

>Many options for people when they are not needed
I don't know what this means. Are you listing the fact that a series inspired by and previously shown to be semi open with a decent emphasis on exploration and non-linearity in levels ... and then deciding to go full-linear... as a GOOD thing?

>Turning levels into large open arenas
No, they turned levels into a straight line to the next shooty segment, straight line to the next shooty segment, over and over. This is corridor and arena shooting and it is the trademark of generic FPS.

>gunplay would remain the central focus while having just enough options for your abilities to be utilities and not the actual focus
So again, you're saying the fact that they cut out the ability to use a bunch of different plasmids at once in tandem with a bunch of different weapons is good thing. Because it was too confusing or unpleasant when you could shoot lightning, fire, bees, etc, all in one fight?

>This is also keeping with the story in which the powers are seen as secondary to man and machine
The central theme of the entire city is that is powered by a forsaken child who emits energy that is then collected. And said child spends the entire game running around opening rifts in spacetime for you. The games were always about the duality of man and machine, but plasmids were just another aspect of it, removing them here makes no more sense than it would in previous games.

It gets better when you shut it off, go to paheal and look up SFM porn of Elizabeth.

>>323334375
Well focusing on a gunplay would be right if they didn't have a horrible weapon selection with 2 weapon limit and keep throwing at you different choices every time you progressed and made all the weapons I upgraded with hard earned money useless. Also the gluttony and no inventory system made it worse. Why should I have to wait for Elizabeth to throw me a medpack or salts if I could carry at least 1 of each with me or when she was on a cool down I had to take cover and hope to find a half eaten hotdog or an apple to survive the fight? Some of the plasmids got unlocked so late in the game you didn't even have time to have fun with them.

Exactly. Too much fat on the ham, if you get my drift. You didn't need all these plasmid combos or vigor environmental hazards when just shooting people would do the job. The plasmids are utilities for your main tools, not the other way around. And too many guns just means too many clutter. We don't need too many needless hallways and dead ends when people are just interested in the story. This game is better than the previous ones because it represents an entryway into a new world for ordinary people. It's not a "acquired taste" kind of thing, but rather a "pleasing for everyone" kind of thing. You get my drift man.

>half the weapons are just reskins that aren't available until the second half of the game
>only about 5-7 weapons, and then 5-7 more that are those same weapons but a different color

>Achievements to kill 40+ enemies with every single weapon in the game
>Some areas and levels won't even HAVE 40+ enemies in them.

Who the actual fuck is expected to either disregard their upgraded weapons in favor of picking away at enemies with garbage weaponry, or replaying the game 4-5 times in order to get these achievements?

Nice to see that the art of forensics is alive and well on this here image board. If you're unable to comprehend a second opinion, mayhaps you should quit your day job and spend the rest of your narrow life inside whatever hole you choose to call your home with you fingers in your ears while you repeatedly shout positive things to yourself. I think that may be better for your health and those who are forced to interact with you daily.
