I have once again started my next play-through of Bioshock. I left a few achievements on the table the last time through so I wanted to go back and gather them up. Also, I wanted to go through again and absorb the atmosphere, take the time to have a second look of the environment around me. So far I have discovered a few things that I had not or could not have noticed the first time through. One of the showcase titles on 360, it is great to once again enter Rapture!
A couple of months back I announced Viva Pinata as one of my ‘Side Quest’ games. I did manage to get some play and a couple more achievements, but have failed to return. With the announcement on the next VP game I have a renewed interest in the original. I am looking to get back to my garden very soon.
On a related SQ note I also have to co-op missions running in Gears of War. One on Hardcore as Marcus, and one on insane as Dom. I have played through GoW several times and I am still seeing new things. Gears is far and away the most enjoyable co-op game I have played. While not the biggest adventure, the gameplay kicks ass in so many ways. This is a good way to get me primed for Gears 2.
