I was wondering about the weapon upgrades. I know it has been said that the player 'invents' his own upgrades to the weapons using pieces from the world. But, what I was wondering was if these upgrade pieces are fairly obvious or not.
Is it like Night Under a Killing Moon where there are many seemingly random pieces and you try different combinations? or are the upgrades and upgrade components fairly obvious?
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

It would have been better if you would have posted this in the "questions for the team" section. I thought one of the interviews said something about a weapons upgrading machine. Perhaps we find work benches/stations where we will have to play a mini-game to upgrade our weapons.
so how do you you upgrade plazmids and weapons. the video said you have to find random things in the world but i heard there in no invntory
you do it right then and there i guess

You gather various pieces and things which you can use to upgrade your weapon throughout the levels, and then at the U-Invent machine you can assign those pieces to each weapon -- i.e. fast reload for shotgun, etc. I'm just guessing, but I'm a good guesser.

Whatever the system is, I'm guessing it'll be pretty obvious, since BioShock seems to be streamlined for easy of use and fast paced gameplay (if the player chooses a faster approach).
As for there being no inventory and no HUD, I think that's just a rumour that started with random speculation by forum members after seeing one of the gameplay movies with crosshairs, HUD etc. switched off.
Personally I can't imagine there not being at least an option to have a HUD and crosshairs, but I guess there's always that possibility (you may only be able to access your equipment at the various upgrade points, for example).
I had a copy of Overseer and I really loved the style and the intro and the first few rooms. Plus the humour was really cool, but I had compatibility issues that stopped me getting past the first interview (It was really disappointing (I'm putting together a separate machine out of old bits and pieces to play Win98 games so I might try and pick up another copy)).

I think that you add plasmids to the weapons and that pimps the weapon a little bit.
actually you add plasmids to yourself.

Anyways, yeah, I recently read about the U-Invent stations. But, im still not sure whether or not all the upgrade pieces are going to be obvious or not. I would assume that they sortof are, but you never know.
As for plasmids? well I think its been hinted at that you can use plasmids in the upgrades, but that is yet to be confirmed
