Hey everyone, i know talk about sequels and movies has been tossed around. But im sure something like that wouldnt be out for a long long time... so in the mean time sometime soon 2k should think about making a few Bioshock Episodes to quench our thirsts. Make them either a free download for registered owners, $5 or up to $20 depending upon the amount of content.
Heres one idea for an episode structure. Episode one, shown played the eyes of a rich man as you watch rapture fall, maybe your a father with children and you see rapture falling apart, so you prepare and are told lies by Ryan about the lower class and Fontaine and about an impending battle. Maybe your hired to do some sort of recon job and then after your done thats when the lower class "storms the proverbial barricades" and even more break out of the large ghetto prisons and you do battle.
Then a 2nd episode shown through the eyes of a lower class citizen, how he was treated and beaten down by people tied in with the upper class put in a ghetto prison with everyone else and then kind of rescued, fed food and propaganda from Fontaines men at the home for the poor, then you help them... maybe do a recon of the prison or the barricades and then report back to plan for the attack?
Soak both episodes in background stories and scripted scenes of chaos and maybe show rapture in all its beauty before it was torn apart. Show a normal day or two before things go completely nuts....live the posh life in rapture for a day or see what its like to serve the rich for a day i think that would be cool.

Honestly, those are both good calls. I like the idea of seeing more than one side of things. The first one could be a lot of fun in a Half-Life Episode 2 sort of way, I imagine it'd be one big panicked rush through Rapture to try to find a bathysphere to get back up to the surface, all the while fending off Ryan's PA announcements convincing everyone down there that everything is alright.
The second one is pretty interesting just because you're basically playing a Splicer; you're on Atlas' side after all. Maybe there could be a part where you discover Atlas' true identity and intentions and try to do something, but die in the end.

i think it would be great, heres another one.... maybe instead of recon jobs as the rich man your asked to take part in Ryan's raid on Fontaine and recover his dead body. You show up at the fishery, have to battle your way in past tons of armed guards and finally you find Fontaine dead.. maybe suicide? or maybe you kill him... well what you think is him and report back to Ryan.
then for the 2nd Episode through the eyes of one of the lower class coerced into joining Fontaine, you take part in the defense of the fishery. When Ryans men strike youre one of the few asked to take part in sneaking Fontaine out through a hidden back door while his doppleganger (clone, maybe some kind of plasmid clone) fights and dies (or is killed by Fontaine and left there) for Ryans men to find. So youre sneaking around with Fontaine and bring him to one of his paid surgeons who does some work on his face to become Atlas.
Heres just a side thought.. at the end of the 2nd episode you have helped Fontaine so much youre the only one to survive with Fontaine all the way up to the surgeons door. So Ryan's face is reconstructed while you wait, when he comes out and you see him he thanks you.... then kills you. Youre the only one who knows for fact that Atlas is Fontaine and Fontaine wants a clean slate.

umm... it's called an expansion pack. "Episodes" are just some stupid thing the fools that made Half life came up with to milk the market.
elsewhere, I think that it would be a great idea to have some expansion packs out there, adding some background... it's great. I would loooooo... ooooove to see it. yay

Mmm...expansions concerning the past events of Rapture. I would actually rather have improvements on the actual game and added sections to Rapture. I would love to see an untouched section(s) that the war hasn't touched. You know, see the real glory of Rapture.
Find some MORE audio diarys concerning Rapture's rise and its fall. And possibly some of the suggested weapons/plasmids people have been asking for in a new patch.

It's interesting that by the time Jack gets to Rapture, it's already existed for 16 years. There's a lot of room there for a prologue.
Something I'd want to see is the technique where at some point, perhaps in the beginning, the future changes to the past. Like, you see ruins that transform to their original state right before your eyes. That would be a cool effect, to see war-torn areas of Rapture revert to when they were brand new.
Also, to see some of the events mentioned in the audio diaries in real time, and meet/see the people that kept them.

2K is either too busy for them to make an expansion pack, or are too lazy. And besides expansion games really aren't the kind of games Irrational Games do. Expansion packs are a cheap way of prolonging a games already overdue date, so in other words their mediocre. And anyways, there is no more story left in BioShock, it's over.
