Backloggers Anonymous System Shock 2 Part 1

Ok, well it's not exactly part one...

So, funny story, I think Backloggers Anonymous is cursed when it comes to handling games designed by Irrational. The reason? Well, this is actually our second first recording for System Shock 2.

However, the once simplistic mechanics from System Shock 2 has evolved into a refined railway shooter in BioShock Infinite. So let’s take a look at where Irrational has been as we look forward to where they are going.

BioShock Infinite Delayed to 2013

A personal address from Ken Levine reveals that the anticipated title is being moved to next year for further tweaks and refinements.

This morning Ken Levine made a personal address to BioShock fans to inform them that BioShock Infinite will no longer see release in 2012.
