BioShock News

by Alex Nash

In keeping with my obsession with the FANTASTIC new shooter, BioShock, this post might help some of you if you happened to pick up the PC version and were having some issues, or have heard and are curious about the widescreen debate currently raging about the game.

The Cult of Rapture, BioShock’s official website, made a lengthy post about the various issues people are having with the new game. First of all comes word of new SecuROM changes allowing PC users to install the game on more computers as well as allow users to reinstall the game on the same computer more times.

Next on the list was that apparently the activation server 2K Games had set up to authorize PC copies of the game had gone down for a few hours the other night, and is now back online so users can finally finish installing their game.

Lastly, and this is a little more relevant for 360 players as well, is word that a widescreen patch is in the works for the PC version, and 2K Boston is currently looking into a 360 patch for the same thing. Hopefully the widescreen patch for the 360 will come out pretty soon because I do notice the smaller field of view in the game, however it is not enough to bother me that much.

And with that, its time for me to head back down to Rapture to unlock more of the mysteries of this fantastic city.

If you haven’t already, would you kindly go pick up BioShock? You won’t regret it; I promise.
