Thread: First Screenshot Scenario Contest!

  1. #1

    First Screenshot Scenario Contest!

    The first screenshot scenario contest has been posted on the Cult of Rapture site. Just letting everyone know about this. I think it's very interesting and I'm glad to see new images, especially in such an interesting format like this. Also, free t-shirts! Discuss.

    I love how he's lugging around a crate of grenades.

    Will we be able to make makeshift grenades in BioShock?

    I would guess so considering there's invention, but I haven't seen it actually confirmed yet.

    Somone else has had problems with the auto-subject appendix before. Maybe that's it in your case, too?



    Golly, I wonder if that blue glowing hand and the fact that the dude stands in water wants to tell me something. NDA leash is still firm, it seems.

    What about fans from Europe and outside the US? I understand it would cost Take2 more to ship the T-shirts worldwide but it feels bad anyway.

    And what if we outsiders post some good ideas somewhere and some american kid/guy wins with it?

    So I guess two weeks from now we're getting a video of the winning strategy? I hope someone submits something crazy lunatic so that we'll get a demonstration that's not one of the obvious solutions. I'd submit but I'm not in the US so I just care about seeing video footage of the latest build of the game

    I think they could easily accommodate overseas fans if they chose to: they could make a vid for the best submission, and if it was from a non-US person they could send the t-shirt to the second place or something.

    Do you think I could enter if I live outside the US yet own a mailbox inside the US?

    Hmm, anyone else think that grenadier baddie seems a little weird? The idea of running away from a guy who lugs a big box filled with grenades as he chases you seems kinda surreal.

    It seems pretty obvious what to do (without knowing to much about how the physics work)
    This seems more like an english test, oh ill be winning then

    They realy need to be revealing more about how powerful the telekinesis is.

    Based on the SpikeTV trailer, I'd say it's very powerful.

    Anyway, I sent in my 5 solutions. My idea about how the foreing fans should be treated:
    "Could you guys make an other video of the best solution from a foreigner? I think it would be a nice gesture toward those, who can't participate in the contest and the fans would appreciate it. So we could have our own little competition, and honour would be the prize."
    So, no T-shirt but we'd get an extra video. What do you think?

    Maybe it's really filled with delicious candy.

    I had trouble with one of the email addresses trying to submit questions to Ken.

    My solution is: Can't we just reason with them

    Another competition that's not open to non-US residents? Ah, the joys of the international internet.

    Honestly, I thought companies would have gotten past this by now.

    Can we shoot out the lights? i dont think we know enough about the game for this type of competition.

    Is that 16bit color depth ? or are you just happy to see me.

    Well my internet is being a bish so I'll just post it here.

    SOLUTION ONE!

    1. Avoid his grenades.

    2. Obviously your able to interact with the envorment so while I'm getting some face time with the needle I'll throw stuff at him. Ex. Medical Pavilion there must be some sharp objects.

    3. Once the plasmids ready I will still avoid his grenades. After he uses one and shuffles another out of his pet carrier like contraption I'll trip him with a good ol' psi blast.

    4. I'll conclude his death with some good wallops over the head with my trusty wrench.

    Solution Two

    1. Become Static Shock and inject the plasmid in plain view.

    2. Obviously a sick twisted mine like that knows that I have plasmids so he would either (1. Run away) (Or 2. Get closer)

    3. If he's close bring out Mr.Wrench for some 3d pleasure for Mr.Doctor

    4. If he runs I'll chase him into that platoon place with all the water.

    5. Electricity and Water= Fried Splicer.

    Done!

    Well, I could whine about not being able to participate, but what would be the point of that. The way I see it there would be the following options:

    1. Whack the guy with the wrench.

    2. Shoot him with the shotgun.

    3. Fry him when he is in the water.

    4. Use telekinesis to catch the bombs and toss them back to the grenadier.

    5. Avoid the grenades and use telekinesis to crush the guy to death with the boulders seen in the adjacent room.

    6. Stun him with the electro bolt plasmid (does it just stun a guy if he isn't in water, or am I completely wrong about this?) then kill him with the wrench.

    7. Use telekinesis on the guy and toss him around. Can this actually be done?

    8. The creative solution: I bet he really wants me dead, but I hope his aim isn't the best and I can probably avoid his bombs. So I run away, but make sure he is on my tail. I find the nearest big daddy or other enemy and get the grenadier to harm them. Mayhem begins as they duke it out, while I slip in to the shadows and observe who wins. If it is the grenadier, then I go find another "victim" that I want him to take out.

    Bah, just give him a hug. The guy just needs some love.





    ..and is hopefully smart enough not to use area effect weapons in close range, nor suicidal.

    How about, oooh, letting 2K know some people are disappointed?
