Blog posts made by users on the BioShock Wiki.
Friends, Rapturians, contributors, lend me your ears. I've been seriously considering a potentially large change that will impact the BioShock Wiki and I need your input.
All Wikis have optional features that impact the user experience including enabling/disabling things like polls, blogs, forums, etc. One of these Features is called "Require All Contributors to Log In;" it's exactly what it sounds like:
- Do you want all contributors on your wikia to be logged in? When this feature is enabled, no an…

Hi WWW people!
A rumor is often misheard or misunderstood.. or re-imagined. System Shock is an IP 'believed' to be the scfi-reversal-twin to Bioshock, from what I gather System Shock's theme, is; when AI goes quite mad. Bioshock being Steampunk retro-futuristic, dirty dank realism that we loved, of a charismatic genius. and SystemShock, .. from the Demo alone.. a world gone wrong.
We are not getting another Bioshock.. if ever.. for another 5 years at least, so fans i imagine will flock to Nigh…

So word has spread about BioShock: The Collection and we've already had the first of what will doubtless be many edits in reaction to the remaster. User:Mattb923 recently replaced the image above with the new image below in the BioShock section of The Lighthouse article.
This is where we must ask ourselves a series of questions. What do we do with the images that we'll be receiving? How do we organize them? How shall we arrange them on the articles that benefit from them?
One option is to replace th…

"Good news, Mister or Missus citizen Rapture!"
Ten years is a long time, nonetheless BioShock remains a thrilling, thoughtful, and beautiful game. Still, time marches on and technology improves, and while the city of Rapture may deteriorate, it's about to become even more gorgeous.
BioShock The Collection has been announced. What does this mean? It appears that BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite will be enhanced and remastered for current platforms! So far only hints from 2K, the BioShock Twitte…Read more >
I have noticed various plotholes/inconsistencies in the bioshock series (mainly in burial at sea) and was wondering if there should be a page dedicated to it or not? If so I can help create it.
Also, I created a canon page awhile ago and it got deleted, I am curious as to why it was?Read more >

Counterfeit copies of the Breaking the Mold artbook have been spotted on eBay - this is a public service announcement from Rapture.
Someone out there is making a nice profit by misrepresenting and illegally selling fake copies of Breaking the Mold.
It kills me that fans may have bought these copies without knowing it, and unfortunately there's no way to warn people on eBay.
If this info can be spread, and linked as a warning on the Breaking the Mold page, it would be appreciated, to help warn our …Read more >
April can be a stressful time for many, especially here in America. Tax season, end of semester exams, the weather is still completely nuts, etc. We could all use a momentary distraction... how about a game of Bingo? The classic game of chance was invented in 1929 and certainly would have been played in Rapture. With that in mind, I present...

We've all completed BioShock, but maybe we've made two or more save files on different levels. So load up the game, or start from the beginn…
You may have seen my bot MainframeBot editing several file pages in quick succession. I'm using AutoWikiBrowser to achieve this. It makes replacing categories, adding templates etc much easier. It does flood Special:Recentchanges and Special:WikiActivity however. By getting a bot flag, edits by an account flagged as a bot are hidden from the aforementioned special pages. A bot flag has to be requested from staff and usually requires community consensus. The question thus is:Read more >
Does the BioShock Wi…
I've talked before about how much I love the amazing visuals of BioShock and the successive games in the franchise. One of the most important aspects, both visually and narratively, were the advertisements seen around the city. The talented artists who worked on the game conducted so much research in order to recreate the aesthetics of the mid-20th century. While their original work is superb, one can't overlook the interesting matter of the "recycled" images.
It's been uncovered that many of the ad…Read more >
Found this on Twitter today, was originally posted by Jeremy Carson from Irrational Games. I don't recall seeing this before so I think it's new. This short vid shows what the UI looked like back when Vigors were by the dose rather than using Salt as they in the final game. It also show part of the production process in the "Pink Cudes Screaming" The Tweet: https://twitter.com/jeremyacarson/status/710548894439051264

I'm making this blog post to get everyone's attention on the matter of the removed content pages, namely BioShock Removed Content, BioShock 2 Removed Content and BioShock Infinite Removed Content.
The first point I'd like to address is the title of these pages.
It has been brought twice to my attention that those titles can be misleading, as all stuff listed are not just removed content. Some of them are unused concepts, others aborted game versions and lore/story script, and sometimes you can't …

These pages are the Original "pitch" for Bioshock that Ken Levine shopped around to different publishers. Unownshipper said to put these pages up and see if they made the grade for their on page (They should). Irrational Games put these up in the From the Vault in 2010 as .png images and can still be found there. I have found some of the background images for the monsters on these pages, but those don't need to go up here. As a note, in many ways the main character described in this pitch is mo…Read more >
One might describe the future of the BioShock series as similar to the fate of Rapture: murky at best. What is certain is that this Wikia will carry on. Everyday it feels like we learn a little more about the development and creation of this series as Ken Levine or other developers slowly reveal more insight. Additionally, the fandom only seems to increase as the franchise ages like fine wine. Bearing this in mind, what this site needs is the right people in a position to maintain and enhance it so …Read more >
