Levine killed BioShock movie project, Why?It was BioShock creator Ken Levine who pulled the plug on Universal's in development BioShock movie, after budget cuts left the project compromised, Levine told Edge at this week's BAFTA event in London.
"There was a deal in place and it was actually in production at Universal, and Gore Verbinski was directing it," said Levine. "And what happened was – this is my theory – it's a very big movie and Gore was very excited about it and he wanted to make a very dark, what he would call a 'hard-rated' horror film – an R rated film with a lot of blood. Then The Watchmen came out – and I really liked The Watchmen – but it didn't do well for whatever reason and the studio got cold feet about making an R rated $200 million film.
"So they said, 'Gore, what about it if it was an $80 million film?' and enough time had gone by where Gore didn't want to make an $80 million dollar film."
Levine continued: "They brought another director in and I didn't really see the match

Would You KindlyWould you kindly...Would You Kindly4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Would you kindly release me?
I have no will to become a puppet,
a slave of your greed and power lust.
Would you kindly show your face?
Using those you murdered,
to mask your malicious intent.
Would you kindly confront me,
as man and not as the coward you are.
The final showdown.
Would you kindly bleed,
against the floors you tried so hard,
to rip from the hands that made it.
Would you kindly die,
an irony matched by no other.
Your power made you only weaker.
Would you kindly...
kindly, my dear.
Show me the way out.
The way up.

Would you kindly lie,
filling my head with a false life.
The life you wanted.
Would you kindly make me a monster,
tell me to become the villain,
turn the Atlantic into a fiery-massacre.
Would you kindly lead me,
a shadow, twisted and deformed,
down every evil hall of the city.
Would you kindly toss me about,
like the wreck of the plane itself,
crumbled on the murky ocean floor.
Would you kindly warp my mind,
a mind I never had control of,
a puppet on a bloodied string.
Would you kindly...
Kindly, you bastards.
For every drop of blood I spill for you,
the more the city belongs to me.

BioShock Infinite: What It Tells Us About the GameIt’s amusing watching people describe the latest BioShock Infinite trailer as if developer Irrational were long lost and sending up a flare from the heart of some dark continent. Where did people think the game had gone? Did they miss the memo? The game was only announced two years ago, after all, and it’s been delayed once, and then by just a few months — from mid-October 2012 to Feb. 26, 2013.BioShock Infinite: What It Tells Us About the Game3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the trailer, we get a closer look at Columbia, the mysterious floating sky-city occupying the game’s alternate history-verse circa 1912, decades before either BioShock or BioShock 2‘s 1960s-era gene-mangling tangos take place somewhere under the sea (though in fairness we’re still not certain the two worlds are linked).
We’re also given a closer look at the Sky-Hook, which resembles a claw-tipped prosthesis held as if clutching and aiming a rifle one-handed. Here we see the Sky-Hook doubling as a mangling tool, the end spinning like a circular saw bl

My AngelsIt's a sick reality, really,My Angels4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
examining the bloodied tiles.
The ocean has done them a number,
those damp corpses.
Each one, rotting away,
the rats feasting on every ounce of flesh.
Their eyes, pale and blank,
similar to their post-mortum stares.
The stench eroding from them,
rancid and repulsive,
even drives away most.
Their cold gray skin,
moistened with the leaking Atlantic,
glisten softly in the neon lights.
Their faces, deformed and mangled,
a mask from who they used to be,
grin at those who still live around them.
The body's... they line the streets of Rapture now.
But they're still my angels.
Family"Hello Papa."Family4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Staring up at you,
no longer a man,
just a mindless brute.
"Hello, my dear."
You wish to say,
to comfort her.
She's a monster, like you.
As she places her hand,
in the blood-stained glove that is yours,
humming a tune,
you look about.
Rapture is broken.
The walls, the windows.
It's people, dead an alive.
Family. Family is broken.
You were her father.
She was your daughter.
You descended into Rapture,
and that bond was broken.
Science decimated that connection,
love and compassion.
But, it doesn't matter now.
Family is a concept reserved for those,
and only for those,
with their own heart and mind,
to cherish it.
ADAMSuch glorious praise,ADAM4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
for such twisted science.
ADAM, the way of the future,
the way of Rapture.
But, should such things be praised?
As we augment our selves further,
we plunge deeper and deeper,
into dark and sadistic addiction.
As if the Devil himself slips,
quietly and grinning,
into your blackened veins.
The needle his gate. His path way.
Your eyes become his eyes.
Your strength belongs to him.
How much longer,
can you resist his seduction?
The vial is empty,
the needle slightly moist.
Look at your arms, friend.
What have you done?
