ARGcast #74: Under The Sea in BioShock with Bill Gardner
Before we venture into Rapture, David and Bill dive into some hot news from the past week. Nintendo pulls the same stocking shenanigans with the SNES Classic, and we’re all not all too pleased about it! Good thing the news on Shenmue III getting a publisher and new teaser helps alleviate that a bit. Then we scratch our heads over the legal dispute between Atari and Nestle. Does Breakout really move candy bars?
This week’s Stage of History helps set the stage for BioShock with other amazing FPS titles. Take a twisted turn in Heretic, a sci-fi romp in Deus Ex, and a gravity-defying adventure in Half-Life 2. David also has a couple of game codes to giveaway, and we have another game of Random Select. Can Bill nail a character who is near and dear to his heart?
