Irrational Announcement Next Week

Irrational Behavior Episode 7 Part 1: Calm Before The Storm offers the announcement of an upcoming announcement from Irrational Games. They play back a bunch of the guesses from their recent guess request, which are far more amusing than one might have suspected at first. They go on to reveal their plan to announce their next project next week, saying they will launch a CGI trailer for the game on August 12. To raise expectations, they also describe how excited they are to be able to unveil this game, which has been in development for a couple of years now.

...and Bioshock was basically System Shock underwater.

For me, it was not even close to being a "successor" to the System Shock series. I was so disappointed that I quit playing in the middle of Bioshock and uninstalled it. I never even tried Bioshock 2.

Ken Levine didn't join Looking Glass until around Thief II, I think. So, he had no part in the Ultima Underworlds and System Shock 1. System Shock 2 came out just before Looking Glass went belly up. It basically split into 2 factions... Irrational Games headed by Ken Levine and another guy... and Ion Storm with Warren Spector.

Given the success of each faction's "next game" Deus Ex by Ion Storm vs. Freedom Force by Irrational Games... I'd have to say most of the talent went with the Ion Storm Faction.

Basically what I'm saying is... a "Shock Successor" without Warren ain't a "Shock Successor"... and even though it makes me cringe... I'm betting "Epic Mickey" will be better (In an "American McGee's Alice sort of way).
