i think along with Fallout: New Vegas, this is the game I'm looking forward to the most. I always loved the world of Bioshock. The second one was great, but something was missing. Maybe what was missing really was Ken Levine. And since he's helming this one, i have great faith in it. so far they've said nothing about the game, save for being set in the early 20th century and takes place in Columbia, a city in the sky. Unfortunately, this is slated for a 2012 release date, so everyone's speculation will be as good as it gets right now. This picture was released yesterday, and appears to be what will be the Big Daddies of Columbia.
|Origins of a Big Daddy? Why is that woman on the left still sweeping?|
What is hard to tell from this picture (which you can click to enlarge), is if this is some sort of a cyborg or a full on machine man. From the trailer and the pictures, you can see a beating heart in the chest of him, but it cannot be confirmed whether the head is real or not. And again, this is just speculation (and hope), but it would be very interesting if they went the in the direction of making the head false, in order to make the machines less terrifying and have the people see them with more humanity. Kindof like a man in a suit at Disney world.
But overall, yes, this is a thing I'm very much looking forward to.
