Episode Six: An Exclusive Look At The Little Sisters of Rapture

  • June 1, 2007

I sat down with Ken Levine, Creative Director at Irrational Games, and asked him the tough questions many in the media, and on the forums, have been posing about the Little Sisters in BioShock. In this exclusive podcast, Ken and I talk about what the Little Sister is, and why Irrational chose to use the form of a child in this upcoming shooter. We also discuss what harvesting and rescuing really means, the moral ramifications of including a child in a video game that you can potentially harm, and even if Irrational changed the Little Sister, and your interactions with her, due to public (or publisher) pressure.

EPISODE TWO: PLAYER CHOICE IN BIOSHOCK

  • February 5, 2007

Today I am joined by 2K Marketing Coordinator Eric Monacelli and Ken Levine to talk about Player Choice in BioShock. We talk about the variety of playstyles that you can toy with in Rapture, and the diversity of the world itself. Ken is really in his element during this podcast, giving us some great insight into his thinking behind the game, and many of the reasons he decided to focus on innovating player choice in BioShock.

Episode One: What is BioShock?

  • January 22, 2007

Today I interview Melissa Miller, a 2K producer working on BioShock. She's spent several weeks up in Boston, logging hundreds of hours playing BioShock in its various stages of development, and could be called the resident guru of the game. At times, I think she'd be more comfortable if her hands were glowing blue from plasmids, rather than their normal, pinkish hue.

She gives us a close up and personal view on what it BioShock to her, and some of the awesome ways you can utilize the different weapons and environments in the world of Rapture.
