BioShock 2 Competition

Bioshock 2 – the long awaited sequel to the critically acclaimed 2007 game and arguably one of the most eagerly awaited releases of the year, has surfaced. The original Bioshock, while dividing opinion, introduced two characters which would rapidly become iconic in gaming, regardless of the mixed views on the game and its story, namely Big Daddy and the eerie Little Sisters.

The sequel is set in the dystopian city of Rapture in an alternative 1968, approximately ten years after the events which transpired in the original game. This time…you are the Daddy, the first, named simply ‘Subject Delta’. His attempts to locate the Little Sister with whom he was paired years previously will become your mission along with, of course, saving the city from destruction and in the process, running across a lethal, if not too unfamiliar new enemy in the form of the Big Sisters.

So, that is the run down without giving away any more story or plot details for the spoiler squeamish, so what are we all doing here?

While most top titles are often content to farm out the now jaded steelbook/figurine collector’s edition, BioShock 2′s Collector’s Edition offers something a little more special which is why we couldn’t resist offering the XBox 360 version up as a competition giveaway.

When it comes to special edition sets, it doesn't get much better than this. A retrotastic swag bag and your own Little Sister

Here are the juicy details:

  • BioShock 2: Limited Edition contents:
  • BioShock 2 game (XBox 360)
  • 12″ vinyl LP with BioShock orchestral score
  • Audio CD with BioShock 2 orchestral score
  • 3 vintage Rapture advertisement posters (rolled)
  • BioShock 2 164-page hardback artbook
  • Little Sister 3.75″ Figure

So if this sumptuously sexy set tickles your tingly bits, then read on to see how you can get your sticky paws on the prize.

Rather than come up with a banal multichoice Q ‘n A, we thought we would have a little fun and make you work… so we want you to send us a photo of the WORST BioShock cosplay outfit that you can find online we’ll select the most hideous or ridiculous as the winner.  It could be worse, we could have asked you to dress up as a Little Sister and send us the pictures but we decided to be kind.  The competition is now closed

Updated:   The winning entry will be selected by Harrison Krix, the creator of the BEST damn Big Daddy costume we’ve ever seen.  Once the entries close, all individual images will be sent to Harrison for the final decision.  If the winning image has been submitted by multiple entrants, we will draw the final winner from a hat based on the winning photo.

Please Note: Entries from friends and family of GamingLives writers are welcome, but writers cannot enter the competition themselves.  Contributors are welcome to enter.

    Just out of interest for anyone who wants to enter, what happens if multiple people submit similar/the picture?

  2. Mark R MarkuzR says:

    Whichever picture we think is the most ridiculous will win, but if many people submit the same image then those who did will go into a hat and be picked randomly. Thankfully, there are hundreds of dodgy BioShock costumes out there so hopefully it won’t happen very often. Either way though, it’s the photo which will be the decider and then a random seed may be applied thereafter.

  3. Samuel The Preacher says:

    That’s one hell of a nice collector’s edition. Anything with that comes with a vinyl record gets my vote. Not sure how you managed to get hold of a copy to give away, but good luck to whoever enters.

  4. Lauren says:

    This Collector’s Edition IS pretty sweet. The coolest part is that the record actually works. My boyfriend and I preordered this edition for $80 from Amazon. The only thing we don’t have is the Little Sister. So to be fair to everyone else, I won’t even bother submitting anything. Because as much as i am in love with this game, having two of everything would be silly.. (:

  5. Victor Victor says:

    Well, thank you for considering fellow gamers, Lauren. And everyone should note that Lauren is a terrific photographer. Everyone should check out her profile on DeviantArt.

  6. Mark R MarkuzR says:

    I’m liking this one – – the Z1012 is an excellent camera, I was looking at it a few years ago. Tasty :D

    By the way Victor.. you’re a twittart!
