Excerpt: Most big-budget action games will eventually try to push forward a little moral to the story, but the message is rarely very useful, isn't it?

Excerpt: BioShock on PS3 has caused quite a stir in the office. On the one hand we're delighted that 2K Games has brought the game, albeit a year late, to Sony's console.
