Since it's not coming out for PC, I died a little on the inside...

But hey, Square-Enix took a while to port The Last Remnant to PC, maybe it's going to be slightly improved and customized for PC hardware later down the road?

Also, there are some not coming out by March that I'm excited about. Crysis 2 running on the CryEngine 3 (Which is a slightly watered-down and better-optimized CryEngine 2 so it can run on consoles), the recently announced Elder Scrolls V, and of course Fallout: New Vegas, which is being made in the same engine as Elder Scrolls 4 and Fallout 3 (GameBryo engine), and is being developed by Obsidian Studios (Makers of Fallout 2) and published by Bethesda. In other words, it will be better than fallout 3 in terms of story and lore-accuracy, and will remain just as easily modifiable via a similar G.E.C.K. software.

I'm worried that Bioshock 2 will be rubbish. I don't like the idea of playing as a big daddy.

I see what you mean there. We'll just have to wait and see.

I think playing as a Big Daddy will be quite fun. He is the prototype after all, so he's not brainwashed.

Plus true Dual-Wielding a Plasmid and Weapon at once, high-level Plasmids actually mean something other than more power, and of course Plasmid Combos!

Cyclone Trap can be combined with Electro-Bolt or Incinerate! for an elemental trap that does electrical/fire damage plus the fall damage. If it can be combined with Winter Blast then it may well become an instant kill in rooms with high-ceilings and a high-level cyclone trap.

And it looks to me that the weapon-variety is nice too. And some weapons are multi-purpose. The Rivet Gun is a rapid-fire weapon with 3 distinctive ammo types, and I THINK is the equivalent of the Pistol in Bioshock 1.

And weapon upgrades look to be nice too, like new drill-bits for the Bouncer Drill.

Also...

Spoiler:

You ALMOST played as a Big Daddy in the final levels of Bioshock 1, and the ALMOST was lame in my opinion.


*edit*

Also, Splinter Cell: Conviction coming on February 23rd for 360 and PC. It's going to be awesome.
