Bioshock 2 Special Edition Unboxed...Big Daddy Goes Berzerk

It's easily one of the most anticipated titles of February and if you're a hardcore fan, you'll spring for the Special Edition.

2K Games officially unboxed this bad boy and it features some seriously cool stuff. We get that old-school vinyl record with the full game soundtrack, three high-quality lithographs, a hardcover 168-page art book, another music CD, and of course, the game. It all comes packaged together in a very nifty-looking box, one that is guaranteed to look great in your ever-growing collection. But there's something a little bizarre about this unboxing; it's difficult to explain, so you'll just have to watch the video. The first part is a fairly standard unveiling but then things go a little nutty...

...what the hell was that? Are you seriously telling me I can't buy the Uber Edition now, just because you dopes couldn't control him? Send 'im over my way. I'll beat that sucker down until he knows who's boss, then I'll send him on a rampage that involves long-standing personal grudges. He'll show up at Square-Enix's HQ first and tear apart Yoichi Wada's office until he admits that Final Fantasy XIII on the Xbox 360 was a mistake, and that he'll get everyone working on a FFVII remake. Then onwards to Sega, where my Big Daddy will seek out those responsible for destroying our beloved Sonic mascot. Oh, there's more...

That was awesome. Also I love the look of that art book and vinyl that is one classy looking collectors edition.

I love it when developers & publishers have fun with their product. It kind of shows me that their moral is up & they know their game is good.

Hate to be a downer but that wasn't funny at all until I was reading Ben's last paragraph along with it. The ad-lib commentary was what made it work.

Just hearing the chick say "Now I have to call HR" at the very end made me chuckle to be honest but probably because I have heard that exact thing said in the office under circumstances that were similar. As in someone was fired on the spot, not a giant robot tore up the office. :)

I didn't really even like Bioshock and I want this. The vinyl and the art book are worth it alone. Maybe I'll have to give Bioshock a chance again.

Awesome special edition! I did say I was gonna give Bioshock another chance after all the misunderstandings I had with the first game. One things for sure, I'm definitely gonna beat the first before I get the second though.

So you think you can fare well against a lightning weilding, drill-armed giant? Who's gonna give us our news if you're gone, hmm?? ;)

Nice to see an unboxing video for the SE. I have the SE pre-ordered.

Sadly, that early unboxing BioShock 2 video isn't going to stop the no-life Xbots (believe me, 80% of the videos on YouTube related to gaming are from them) from doing more unboxing videos of that game themselves. I can't believe how popular these unboxing videos are at YouTube. One is enough, brother. Of course, YouTube is also filled with "smack-talking 13 year olds" that Michael Pachter talked about earlier.

At least when Dante's Inferno arrives, the only unboxing videos that will matter will be from PS3 owners because the Xbots are getting nothing extra.

I loved this video. I had a feeling that was going to happen after she revealed the Big Daddy and say that it could work. Still great video can't wait for this game. Can't wait for my ps3 on friday getting the first bioshock game also. What other games besides ( uncharted 1 and 2, batman arkham asylum, infamous, heavenly sword) are good on the ps3 no sport games.
