That wouldnt make any sense... Adam was harvested from sea slugs... unless birds now also carry Adam

Maybe they are going to set this in a whole new universe and Adam is discovered in a completely different way.

Actually my thought behind it is the Sea Slugs werent the original carriers. Going to take a huge guess that Columbia ends up crashing and burning at the end of Bioshock Infinite, into the sea perhaps, and sink to the bottom. Who knows, that could have been the original building blocks of Rapture, which would also explain how the Sea Slugs also got it?

These are just my guesses anyways. I have a wild imagination.

I never got into Bioshock, but I never knew what it was about or when it took place. It was actually just some title I came across but didn't pay attention to. That is until my brother recommended Bioshock to me (particularly Bioshock 2), and I'm sad now that I never looked into it before. It has robots, a creepy little girl...and this...well, when I saw this, I practically orgasmed. I mean, whoa. Flying cities? Airships? Steampunk? Count me in.

I may have to watch walkthroughs of the first two games though. Like I always do.

But I'm definitely buying this when it comes out on PC, no question about it :0

A prime example on why certain games shouldn't be a series.
This could possibly be the most ridiculous idea for a Bioshock sequel, and I'm guessing it won't be the last, next Bioshock will be on Mars.

Had a rather heated argument with a friend over which city, Rapture or this one, is the most impossible one. Any takers?

this one. Underwater hotels are not unheard of, but I've never heard of a floating city. Just having to fight gravity would require an incredible amount of opposing force for a city that big, which would require a lot of some kind of resourse [helium or gasoline who knows]

Underwater hotels aren't placed at the bottom of the ocean, they're obviously placed near the coast at a depth easily accessible.

The water pressure on all the buildings of Rapture would be a similarly amazing technological feat.

With a flying city you can at least make the city first then make it fly. With an underwater city you have to create it down there, a feat that would also be unbelievable.

Point being if you dismiss a floating city as ludicrous you should a deep underwater city as well. The logistics and physics and the given time period make them both impossible.

Actually I believe they have created deep sea buildings already for research purposes (I believe there's one that's something along the lines of what they have in the movie The Abyss), so it wouldn't be as hard to create as the air city. With the underwater city, you could build pieces of the city on land and then lower it into the ocean and have a deep sea crew basically weld/bolt/etc the entire thing together, and drain the water out of any flooded areas after. So it's really not that impossible, it's just that no one would ever try it because there's too much about deep sea life that we have absolutely zero clue about, such as giant squids and such.

well if we're considering the time period then yeah, both are impossible. But I could see an underwater city over a floating city in the future.

I would agree an underwater city is more plausible than an air city.

And Remni... that would be the last of anyone's concerns. Ignoring the fact you'd have to build it in secret, the logistical problems are extraordinary. You'd need constant maintenance, a way to efficiently achieve said maintenance, and to be able to consistently make enough water, food, air, and power for an increasingly growing population with an increasing consumption of resources.

And uh just lowering it into the ocean.. I don't really feel like explaining the problems (there are many) with that.. You can just think about it.

Oh, I know there is, mostly to do with hull pressure. Still, it's not impossible. And I dont think the population would grow over a certain limit, or rather wouldnt be allowed over a certain limit. Children, for one, would not be allowed to be born there, because there would be all kinds of defects due to the pressure, if you could have one at all.

Still, it's far more plausible than a floating city.. probably not as much maintenance as a floating city would take (although you would have to think about wind speeds and such, which would possible make one whole section of the city topple in an instant).

Bioshock Infinite's trailer made me want to cry, it looks like they're going to ruin the game.

Bioshock was good.
Bioshock 2 was very similar to Bioshock, but still good.
Bioshock: Infinite looks very good.

I think a Bioshock that took place in a setting like The Dark City would be very cool.

For those interested, a new DLC has been released for Bioshock 2: Minerva's Den.

Looks to me kinda like a desperate attempt to milk Bioshock again.
I mean, seriously? Another "breed" of Big Daddy?

Subject Sigma actually, and yes, the fact that you are using ANOTHER Alpha Series is quite disappointing.

Well, just bought Alan Wake, so I won't be able to play this DLC in a while.

I came buckets and buckets and buckets and buckets, etc, etc

I LOVE how the world isnt that far gone yet, like in Rapture... now we can finally see the fall of such a city in progress

P.S sorry for the Dutch site, for some reason I cant find this trailer anywhere else

I was already gonna get it. But now that I know that there will be a lot of voice acting from the main character and elizabeth, now I'm especially hyped.
