BioShock (Xbox 360) Completed for the 4th Time
I've completed BioShock (Xbox 360) for the 4th time today, and as usual, it was an awesome experience. If you own an Xbox 360 or a PC, you're really missing out if you haven't played through this great Single Player experience, and if you only own a PlayStation 3, you'd be well advised to check it out when it's released this October.
I once again played on Hard with Vita Chambers Disabled, but this time around I enabled Auto Aiming. For this particular playthrough, I decided to play much more stealthily, mainly by using Natural Camouflage and the Crossbow (1 hit headshot kill!), as well as creative use of Security Bullseye and Enrage. I also had a lot of fun with Proximity Grenades for the first time, and found them quite useful. I suppose I could have mixed all this up with Target Dummy and Trap Bolts, but I didn't get around to it (though I did use Trap Bolts to set up perimetres in Proving Grounds).
I had also heard that if you Harvest just one Little Sister, you'll get the "bad" ending, even if you Rescue all the rest. I put this to the test and found it to be untrue, however according to Wikipedia (link contains SPOILERS) here, you actually need to Harvest more than two Little Sisters for this to happen; which makes a little more sense from a story point of view.
BioShock does have great replay value, though at this point I figure I'm done with the game for a while. I do hope the exclusive content for the upcoming PlayStation 3 port eventually comes to the Xbox 360, as I'd love to give the new Survivor Mode a run-through.
