Quick Quenchers: Bioshock Creator Talks About Creating The Ideal Villain For Infinite

by Ernice Gilbert on August 14th, 2011, under 2K Games, Hot, News

“When I was working on Andrew Ryan, the two things that were most formative to me were reading [Ayn] Rand, and then I watched a documentary about Joseph Goebbels. It wasn’t his evil that struck me, it was the fact that he felt like such a victim. Even though he’s obviously a villain, in his mind, he wasn’t. Everybody’s the hero of their own story; if you can’t find something that makes them great, you don’t have a tragic character. These [are] characters that struggle between their view of the world and their realities of the world. There’s that dissonance that turns them into an antagonist for the player. It’s not just because they want to be.” – Irrational’s Ken Levine on creating villains, speaking to Gama.

No Need To Worry About Bioshock Infinite On PS3

by Ernice Gilbert on November 22nd, 2010, under Hot, Irrational Games, News

I’ll refresh your memory if you can’t remember: Bioshock on PS3 was one of the most buggy ports of any game in any generation on any platform. Indeed, from graphical problems to full blown crashes, PS3 owners got shafted with that game, and that’s after being released one year later on the black box than the Xbox 360 and PC.

So it’s rather good to hear things won’t be the same for the latest game in the best selling franchise when it comes to the PS3, in fact, the game’s technical director, Chris Kline, recently explained on the Irrational Games forums that “We have a much larger team than we did on the original BioShock, so we’re doing simultaneous in-house development on the PS3, 360, and PC versions of the game.”

Well that’s great news. And here I was thinking Irrational Games would allow the same thing to happen again.

Come on, Ernice!
