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.

That's pretty impressive you've beat it for the 4th time. I haven't played it yet, but I definitely will once it's released on the PS3.

By the way, have you ever tried 6 Hour Power? It's an energy drink for gamers that enhances concentration and improves performance without the dreaded crash. You might have seen the commercial on G4. The drinks come in 5 different tasty flavors too. Check them out at

By the way, I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds by commenting on your blog. I work with them, so if you have any questions feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I'd love to hear what you think of the drink.

Hello Franklin,

Sounds like you're trying to splice me up :).

To be honest, energy drinks make me feel like I have the flu. I prefer beer.

It also improves my concentration, and increases the attractiveness of the opposite sex.

Hahaha. That certainly doesn't improve my concentration, especially when gaming! Anyway, if you ever do feel like trying out 6 Hour Power I'd love to hear what it was like for you. I hope flu-like symptoms won't be the answer. :P
