Yeah alright, cards on the table. We couldn’t find anyone in the office who hadn’t played the original Bioshock. Which is hardly surprising when you’re talking about a group of games journalists (incidentally, what would the collective noun for that be? A thinkpiece? A scribble? An ornery of games journos? Anyway.) The problem with that is it kind of scuppered my plans for recording a spectacularly well-timed episode of Late to the Party, to celebrate the shocking-but-not-really announcement that Bioshock: The Collection, a remastered edition of Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and Bioshock: Infinite, is heading to Xbox One, PC and PS4.
So I’m sorry, we went and did it anyway. Let’s just call it Back to the Party and be done with it, alright? I swear it won’t happen again. Probably.
