    Bioshock - Length?

    Anyway, since I'm now flooded with games to play and haven't finished BioShock (damn you, school!) I really need to know how much longer I have to go so I can start on Metroid, Luminous Arc, some megaman game I'll be reviewing for another site, and more games (mainly on DS).

    I just got to the battysphere that takes you to the level after you save the plants. How much longer do I have to go?

    i tihnk the game lasts about 16 or 20 hours. That's not getting everything done though, extra.

    when you get to the bathysphere youll see slots for locations, all of them will be available by the end, and they all take about the same time to complete.

    i believe the name of the last "zone" is point prometheus and is a little shorter than the others, but still a respectably sized area.

    you have a decent amount left to go. worth it though, great game.

    Prometheus? Atlas? Holy fuck this guy loved Ayn Rand.

    alright then, thanks. I was wondering if those slots would just have me go searching for stuff or if i'd actually have to go to each of them and do some 2 hour long stuff.

    Well, I started MP3 and between this and BioShock, I think I'll be starting the school year really badly homework-wise.

    So...umm...lock thread, please?

    p.s. sorry if i'm not supposed to ask for a lock...this is the first forum i like in which i'm not a mod

    no need to ask for a lock, itll just settle under newer posts since no one will need to reply. no biggie.

    I beat it in about 8 hours, which I consider just about the right length for a shooter.

    It really depends on your skill level I guess, if I played it over again I could probably shave 2 hours off that time at least.

    you shouldnt try to play as many games as possible in as lil time as possible.

    I finished it last week, I got 49/50 achievements. I spent ages soaking up the atmosphere, found every diary, every weapon upgrade. I uncovered every room of every level and loved every minute.

    ...took me 12 hours.

    Pretty sure those names were around before Ayn Rand as well.

    With the right point of view, EVERYTHING sounds dirty
